Hi, I'm Carmen. I'm a lifestyle blogger, a digital influencer, & I'm also a blogging + social media coach. My goal is to share thoughtful posts on blogging, travel, food, beauty, & everything that makes life the magnificent adventure it is.

These are the things I'm obsessed with at the moment...


I visited London in 2007 & again in 2017, so England has a special place in my heart. In December 2017, I celebrated 6 months of entrepreneurship as I worked from my little Notting Hill flat. It was such a wonderful experience. We spent 9 days in London (10 days if you count the one night we spent sleeping on the coach at London Gatwick airport). Yes, that happened.

It was always my dream to work at a magazine. I blasted through Dirt, a cool show about a magazine editor "in the world of celebrity journalism" starring Courteney Cox. In terms of real life, I have a growing stack of unopened magazines. This task calls for summer...


Obviously, Odd Future has been around for years at this point, but when I initially wrote this post, they were up-&-coming. :]

If you're a huge hip-hop fan like me, then listen to "Malaya" & "Elephunk Circus." Both songs have super catchy beats, lyrics, vibes. They used to have their mixtapes available for free on their website, but I believe they took them down. 

Summer 2011

Hot weather. Summer attire. Sun. Sand. Tan. Beaches. Magazines. Frozen yogurt. Flip flops. Sunscreen. Beach towels. Bikinis. Friends. Happiness. Gardens. Picnics. Staying up late. Staying out late. Sleeping in. No school. Memories. It's almost summer. We can do it!
