What do you love most about working at Bloguettes?
Gosh, there are so many things! My favorite thing is obviously the team. I have a lot of love for the Bloguettes team, and everyone brings something different to the table so it makes our team very well-rounded and always a good time in the office! But another thing I love is the creative freedom, I love that I get to be creative every day, and that one day is never the same!
Name 3 things you need to be successful in your job position.
Confidence, a DSLR camera, and Photoshop!
Finish this sentence: The motto of my life is…
The best time for a new adventure is now.
What do you like to do in your free time?
During the week when I get off work, I love going for a run and catching up on my favorite TV shows! But on the weekends, I love going out and exploring new bars and restaurants grabbing food and beer with good company!
How would you describe your personal style?
Laidback and simple! I am definitely a jeans and white t-shirt girl, and when it comes to design, I’m a true believer in less is more!
What are your 3 favorite emojis and why?
1. Cry laughing emoji—because it usually is the best response to any text/comment I get!!
2. Praise hands—Because I totally think it’s better than heart eyes, sorry guys!
3. Monkey with hands over eyes—Because I seem to embarrass myself more often than not so this emoji pretty much describes my life! Like… I KNOW I KNOW I JUST HUMILATED MYSELF, HIDING MY FACE NOW!
Where’s your favorite place to take an out-of-town guest?
I recently just moved back to Phoenix and I have fallen in love with all of the new cool hip restaurants we have! Lucky enough, my favorite place happens to be around the corner from the office! So I love to take anyone coming in town out to lunch at Flower Child in Arcadia!!
Pick one song to describe your life. What would it be and why?
Hang Loose by Alabama Shakes—It’s one of my favorite songs. It’s about no worries and going with the flow, I’ve recently started trying to not stress about things I can’t control and believe everything will work out and this song describes that perfectly!!
What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
I would say moving out-of-state to a city where I knew no one! I definitely learned a lot about myself and was one of the best times of my life! A close second…skydiving never thought I would ever do something like that but so glad I did!
Choose a unique item from your wallet/purse and explain why you carry it around.
For my birthday, one of my good friends got me three different sized micron pens. She said they were her favorite to draw with and knew I would love them. She was right. They’re seriously the best! I always keep them in my bag so whenever I’m out waiting or bored I grab that and a notepad and play with different typography or different doodles!
