Who in the world is Carmen? I've been blogging for a while now & want y'all to get to know me a bit more. Me. Myself. I. Carmen. Getting to know me might not be as helpful as how to style a beanie or as tasty as this yummy breakfast recipe, but it's me nonetheless. If you read my blog, you're reading me in text & photo format. Why not get back to basics? Who the hell is Carmen? Without further ado....

I'm Persian, not Mexican - Living in San Diego with a name like Carmen, people tend to think I'm Latina. But I'm not! I'm half Iranian & half...Eastern European. My mum is Iranian aka Persian, so I grew up eating (& still eat) ghormeh sabzi (herb stew), fesenjān (thick, tart stew made from pomegranate syrup & ground walnuts), āsh (a thick soup), & kuku (vegetable souffle kind of like a frittata). I don't speak Farsi, so I'm bummed about that. Oh great, now I'm hungry! 

I'm a social media consultant - What? I have a job?! Uh yes. Gotta pay those bills somehow. I did social media for a resort, timeshare, & hotel brand with 20 resorts in California & Hawaii. I also do freelance social media work. Basically, I create the daily Facebook, Instagram. Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram content depending on the brand or person. I focus on growth & engagement, so I manage their accounts as far as following relevant users, liking, commenting, creating a dialogue etc. So yes, I create Facebook posts for a living.

I have a boyfriend - And his name is Fred!  (hi bb<3) Oh yes, he reads my blog too. It's cool to have a male perspective & opinion in life as well as blogging. We've been together since January 2013. We met in high school & were each other's first kiss. Awww. Things fizzled out & we parted ways but always remained friends. Well, here we are all those years later.

Okay, that's enough information for today. I'll keep up with this series every couple weeks or so! Stay tuned if you want to learn more about how cool I really am. ;] Until then it's back to your usual programming!

Now this leads me to my questions for YOU:
  • Do your parents speak a language that you can't?
  • What's your day job?
  • How long was/is your longest relationship to date?
