About Me


Why hello! I'm Carmen. I'm a lifestyle blogger & social media professional based in San Diego, telling my story with some Southern California pizazz. My goal is to share thoughtful, joyful posts on style, food, music, travel, entertainment, social media, & just life in general.

I run the social media campaigns & daily review management for a hotel, resort, & timeshare brand with 20 locations throughout California & Hawaii. I'm a writer & photographer. I've been vegetarian for 11 years. I like to binge watch shows on Netflix. I collect magazines but never read them. I buy a new candle nearly every week. I love chocolate covered marzipan.

I live with Fred, my boyfriend of four years. I've been blogging for about six years — three of which was just me writing the occasional poem or short story. Now I juggle a blogging & social media career. Follow me through my journey.
