Karen M. Vazquez, Founder
I am on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. Let's connect and coordinate a meeting or an interview!
I offer many local businesses free posts and support, but only when it is my own organic choice and a true favorite of mine. If you want the extra support and are requesting a visit or interview, I offer different lengths and styles of blog posts which you can learn more about under my "contact" section. I love supporting local spots and artists so don't hesitate to ask about my packages. Essentially, my pricing depends on the cost of expenses for me getting to your location and the amount of time, etc invested in the post itself.
I am very passionate about the culture of Southern California and I truly want to highlight the best and most unique aspects of this magical place that I have called home for most of my life. I believe that California has made me the person I am today and I will do everything I can to share the spirit of this sacred place with the world. So many people love it here, it's true. But, not many people have seen it change and grow over the years as I have. Let me write about you! Please help me share your story on my blog. Additionally, if you refer LOSOCAL to others and network with me frequently via social media platforms, I will always give back in some way with extra mentions on my pages.
Shops and Boutiques
I have shopped here in So Cal for over thirty years. I have my favorite shops and boutiques, but I am always open to exploring new options whether a gift shop, women's boutique or even a men's clothing store. I am a shopping queen just like any woman should be...Plus, I am thrifty! I don't hesitate to search out the hottest trends, sales and newer spots. If you know of an amazing new boutique or you just want to share your favorite places to shop...don't be afraid to share your favorite places with me! I love shopping and I am always open to suggestions xo
Yoga and the Arts
I am a certified yoga teacher and classically trained musician so I am aware of many exciting and interesting events in the area. I like to stay active and practice all types of yoga or physical fitness. I also love absorbing live music and it's one of my favorite things to do. I believe music can heal the soul. You will always find me out and about enjoying live music and making new connections with other musicians. Support your local artists!!! They work very hard to bring us the expressions of their craft!
Restaurants and Venues
Ok, let's talk about food!!! I cant get enough of the amazing culture in SoCal. I go out to new restaurants all of the time, but I also have my favorites in the area and I post about restaurants and venues on a regular basis. I love food, wine, beer and anything foodies love. I love cooking from home too, but I most certainly am not a chef. Maybe that's why I enjoy cuisine and cocktails so much! I have so much respect for people in the food service industry. It takes so much attention to detail to run a restaurant.
