Spotlight : Katy Paterson
Lust for Life
Every so often in life a door opens when you least expect it and someone walks through it that just makes everything fun. That person is our Director of Luxury Travel trendsetter, Katy Paterson.
Katy is a party. I can’t explain it any other way. To know her is to absolutely adore her, and from the moment you meet her you are instantly drawn to her unmistakable energy, passion for life, and an infectious sense of humor. Yes, it’s very easy to have a #girlcrush on Katy Paterson and I’m quite positive her fan club is huge.
Today in celebration of Katy’s birthday, we going to get to know her better with a little Q + A session:
What has been your biggest (recent) splurge? Haute Hippe dress for NYE and something pretty from Kiki’s in Vegas!
What do you covet? Designer luggage I know I’ll never buy myself.
How do you celebrate YOU? With quality ME time doing whatever I please.
What is your prized possession? Harry Winston diamond necklace from my husband on our wedding day.
What have you learned this past year? Planning a destination wedding even with a wedding planner can be a lot of work.
What is your favorite book? Wuthering Heights. Such a classic.
What is your greatest risk? Sky diving. Twice.
What is your most intense emotion? Sadness
What three things define you the best? Family, friends, my travel experiences
What path brought you to today? The decision to create a life overseas. If I hadn’t studied abroad in Spain in college I never would have made it a goal to create a career and life abroad. I never would have met the special people in my life I’ve met over the past six years including my Aussie husband.
What tingles your taste buds? A full-bodied red wine with chocolate. Heaven!
Name a song/album that shakes your core. “Imagine” John Lennon
What was lost + now is found? My confidence in my twenties and I’m very glad I found it again.
What is your calling? To travel and live in different places in the world, share those experiences with others to encourage them to get out and explore the world.
What makes you uncomfortable? People’s feet! If anyone gets their bare feet close to me I get uneasy.
What’s on your dream list? To live in a villa in Tuscany surrounded by vineyards where I spend my time writing pretending nothing else exists in the world just for a little while.
What habit do you want to break? Biting my nails. Once one breaks I start in on all of them.
What do you find a total bore? A poorly written novel.
Happy birthday, Katy Paterson!
