Cat Valdes's most interesting possessions & the stories behind each



I really wanted something in my apartment that was alive. It needed to be something that was easy to maintain because I travel a lot and succulents are perfect because they don’t require a lot of water. They’re kind of trendy right now too. Everyone seems to have succulents.

Name of the wind


It is SUCH A GOOD BOOK! It’s a really compelling story and follows the life of a young boy who loses his family at a young age. It’s all about his life and it’s really interesting. I read it all in two days. It’s fantasy, it’s sci-fi. It’s a book I recommend to anyone who like’s fiction. It’s just a really great novel.

So my dogs are my life. They’re my babies, my children. I really like french bulldogs because they look slightly weird but they’re cute at the same time. One is called Beta, the other is called Kappa.

When Beta was 6 months old she ate a sock and she survived.

I adopted Kappa from a friend who couldn’t take care of him anymore. I decided to take him a little over a year ago and I’m so glad that I did.

Vlogging video camera


This is essential to my job so it has become a huge part of my life. It films every single video I post to youtube pretty much. A lot of my friends who make vlogs use it and they told me to get it. The lens is perfect for vlogging. I don’t know much about cameras I just use what people tell me to use. 🙂

Shadow Hunters board game


Shadows hunters is one of my favorite games. It’s a hidden identity game. You play with a game with a team and it’s one team vs the other team. When the game starts nobody knows who’s on who’s team and you have to figure it out as the game goes.

It’s just a really fun game that I discovered at an event called strategicon which is a board game convention in LA.

People freak out about high end fashion but I really like that it says “calm the fuck down” so it’s funny. It’s also a reminder to myself to calm the fuck down because I’m always really anxious about everything. I wear it all the time.

I wore it to universal studios and they told me that I had to take it off because it says “fuck” on it. They took me too a gift shop and they said I could pick out any other shirt and wear that instead. So I got this harry potter shirt that I ended up wearing instead.
