We’re continuing with our series featuring some of the creative people that we know. Every Tuesday we will introduce them as they share with us the ten things they can’t live without. Today we are introducing our dear friend and designer/aspiring architect/fashion guru/fellow blog writer of nic&RAB and CrystalFresh, introducing Ms. Crystal Nicole “Fresh” Hernandez-Barrios [or Crystal-FRESH, as she is more commonly referred].
Location: Houston, TX
I’m always cold. My favorite being my newly purchased Valentino.
Again, all colors/prints/patters/textures.
They say a lot about people, where they’ve been, where they’re going…if shoes could talk. My favorite being the green heels I chose for one of the most special days in my life. (the photographer agreed)
I’ve competed in about a dozen of races…since I started a year and a half ago…I still have the rest of my life. My inspiration (of course) are photos of my past runs…one of my favorites, the 1/2 marathon my husband and I completed. P.S. He’s one of my other favorite things that I could live without because true love is independent and not obsessive. True love brings out the strengths in one another…not the weaknesses. So when people say “I don’t know what i would do without him/her” I worry for them.
best as a surprise, after a sh*tty day at work.
[seven] inspirational boards
These remind me of presentation boards, except there is no one to present them to, or no need for necessary convincing (like a presentation). This board hosts my running bibs, cards that have special meaning and photos. The other inspirational board is used for the mornings when I canNOT decide what to wear…believe it or not, it helps!
[eight] matching kitchen stuff
It makes me feel like at least one part of my life is organized and neat.
These are usually found when family events happen like moving, funerals, or just plain being nosy. The first one is of my husbands grandparents, we used this in his funeral slideshow, it really put their marriage in perspective for a time that few of us had ever witnessed. The second being of my mother in high school, I stole this from my dads wallet, you can tell by the wear and tare of the photo. The third is a “self portrait” my aunt made in junior high or high school, we found folded up like an old bandana while moving my grandmother…she thought it was hideous, I thought otherwise. PS. I hope one day my kids, grandkids, great grandkids will use one of my favorite photos as “Vintage” artwork in there space.
Until next time!
