About Me

I'm a travel blogger, digital influencer, & blogging + social media coach based in sunny San Diego, California


Why hello! I'm Carmen. :]

I'm a travel blogger, digital influencer, & blogging + social media consultant based in sunny San Diego, California. What does a blog coach do? Click here to find out more. I share thoughtful posts about travel, food, blogging, entrepreneurship, & everything that makes life the grand adventure it is.

My Blogging Background

I'm not a travel blogger. I'm not a lifestyle blogger rookie. I've been a San Diego lifestyle blogger for 8 years! It all started in 2011 with the occasional poem or short story. Now my blog is read globally with readers in 108 countries - that's just within the last 30 days! I focus on well-researched, SEO-optimized posts. 

My Career Background

I quit my full-time corporate job in 2017 to pursue my dream of blogging, coaching, & working remotely. Prior to that, I worked as a social media professional in corporate & agency offices for years before making the leap to solo entrepreneurship. I can't believe I've been self-employed for 2 years!!!

Fred, my boyfriend of 6 years, is a freelance cannabis copywriter who creates content for some pretty cool websites. He blogs occasionally too.


My heart is filled with wanderlust. Part of being a travel influencer means traveling frequently! In 2019 I visited 5 countries - France, Spain, Portugal, Poland, & Italy. I went on a press trip to Lompoc, California. Last year I went to Germany, Mexico, & Norway.

I always keep an eye out for good flight deals. Google Flights is my favorite way to save hundreds of dollars on a flight.

I'm currently watching The Golden Girls on Hulu. Let me know if you have Hulu/Netflix recommendations! I am obsessed with drinking fresh mint tea. I'm left-handed. I dye my hair with henna. I like rainy days which is weird for someone who lives in sunny San Diego.

Now I'm working as a full-time entrepreneur, lifestyle blogger, & blogging + social media consultant.  I work from home half the time & travel the other half. Follow me through my journey! I'm glad you're here. :]
