What do you love most about working at Bloguettes?
It’s a very girly and creative environment. Every day is different and it feels like you are hanging around with friends instead of working. I love coming to the office because you never know what crazy thing is going to happen that day!
Name 3 things you need to be successful in your job position.
Hard-working, creativity, and the ability to work in a team.
Finish this sentence: The motto of my life is…
Have courage and be kind. (Yes, like the new Cinderella movie. I love Disney too much!).
What do you like to do in your free time?
During my free time, I love blogging for my fashion blog, Petite Fashion Monster, reading historical-fictional novels or watching Netflix. I can watch Netflix for hours… believe me.
How would you describe your personal style?
Feminine and girly. I love dresses, skirts and anything in floral pattern! Lately though, I’ve been changing my style by wearing more basic and timeless pieces.
What are your 3 favorite emojis and why?
Sunglasses emoji: It’s the coolest emoji! I love it so much. So much attitude for a tiny thing.
The Crown: Because every girl needs a crown in their life! Also, I’m a Disney princess (or so I wish…).
Laughing emoji showing it’s teeth: I use this one a lot. I feel like the emoji is laughing at you and hiding a dirty little secret!
Where’s your favorite place to take an out-of-town guest?
Diego Pops! It’s a must. Every time someone comes to visit, we always go to Diego Pops. I love their tacos! Try the shrimp tacos–you won’t regret it.
Do you have a nickname? What is it & how did you get it?
Actually, Avi is my nickname! My real name is Karla (Yes, with a “K”)! How I got the nickname is kind of a long story. When I was in junior high, one of my friends decided to draw a Japanese comic (or “manga”) about my group of friends. My character’s name was “Avi.” During that time, whenever I would comment in online forums or read fan fics, I would use “Avi” as my username. Now, everyone just refers to me as Avi!
What is one movie you will never get tired of watching?
Oh god! Pride and Prejudice! It’s my favorite movie EVER. I could watch it every day! I know every detail and dialogue. I’m such a hopeless romantic…
If you could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive), who would it be & what would you eat?
Nerd alert: I’m a history lover! History was always my favorite subject in school, especially the Medieval and Renaissance eras. My favorite historical figure is Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII. I would love to know more about her life and we would definitely eat French food. She was educated in the French court so I’m guessing she liked French food, ha!
