Carmen, from Connecticut. Event Planner + Blogger.
Greetings, I’m Carmen Veal! A native of Hartford, Connecticut, and Jill of Many Trades. A journey through cultural awareness and special needs sole mommy-hood led to a desire to design my life and live the life I imagined. While on my road towards living with passion and purpose, I’ve had the pleasure of sharing my love for creating clothing, starting a non-profit organization and special event planning.
About 6 years ago I realized my greatest love is with project management and pulling details together. I’ve been hired to execute and support a plethora of pretty amazing events. Today I proudly plan Corporate and Beauty Events. The Universe saw it fit for me to eventually host many of them inside of my events + beauty showroom in my hometown. The goal digging fanatic in me finds great pleasure in helping myself and others bring a vision to life. There’s always something to celebrate. We can turn ANY event into a special occasion. And together united, divided apart.
When I’m not planning events, I’m exploring matters related to ethnic beauty + wellness on my Brown Skin Women blog, traveling with my love, leading meditation classes, and sharing beautiful vibes and positive energy with amazing family and friends. Most days I share my work life balance (progress and setbacks) across my social media platforms, and on this website which is also home to my professional services and blog. I look forward to connecting with you be it near or from afar, soon! XO, Carmen
