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 interior designer/graphic designer/aspiring architect/fashionista Cathy Alvarado.
Location: San Antonio, TX
[one] my pedro jose
[two] my family
[three] tea and coffee
[four] my diary
Yeah I know it’s silly. I’ve had one since I was like 5. I couldn’t even write and I would have my family take turns as I dictated my thoughts to them. I have a collection of them now and it’s so great to go back and see how much I’ve grown. It’s like a friend who will always listen and never tell. The best part of it is that putting it on paper always somehow clears my head and gives me solutions.
[five] my books
[six] world 101
I grew up traveling so I never liked it, literally moving every 4 years. Now, there is no one to stop me. I made a promise to myself that every year I would go to 3 places I have never been. It doesn’t matter if it’s across the world or just a few hours away. This year I went a little crazy, but hey if not now.. when? Oh and what I enjoy the most is sending postcards!
[eight] nail polish
I think we have all heard our mom’s tell us that hands say so much about a person, and it’s true. I do it for the fun, but secretly it took away my habit of bitting my nails, so now I’m addicted!
[nine] a good purse
It will make any outfit look great and they last forever! And, they are so so soooo pretty!
I am a lazy accessorizer…. I always forget the necklace and the matching earings, and I am pretty tame when it comes to fabric with patterns or flowers, etc., because of course… I always stick in some sort of belt. My favorite ones are still the ones my mother gave me from when she was young! It is the perfect, most essential accessory, in my opinion!
Until next time!
