YouQueen is starting a new series of interviews where we'll introduce some of the most amazing Instagram stars to our readers. We are going to interview those who caught the attention of many people and gathered huge number of followers.
Now, we are proud and happy to welcome our first guest who most definitely deserves flattering title of “YouQueen’s Queen of the Week”- Krystin Lee.
YQ: Who is the person behind @krystin_lee
A: I'm Krystin Lee, a 20-something social media strategist by day and lifestyle blogger by night.
YQ: What are you working on at the moment and what are your future plans?
A: We just wrapped up a trip to London and have some exciting travel plans on deck for the summer including destinations such as Paris, Kelowna and Vancouver.
YQ: What do you think, how did you become so popular, and did popularity change you in some way?
A: I began blogging and instagramming at a time when the platform was relatively new and thriving. The blogging community was much smaller at that point and success I felt was easier to come by. I like to think popularity changed my account for the better in the sense that I try to produce content my readers will enjoy and continue to come back for.
YQ: You look fabulous, what's your secret?
A: An amazing support team (my hubby), coffee, a plethora of concealer and more coffee :)
YQ: What's your morning routine?
A: I'm totally guilty of checking my email and Instagram feed before getting out of bed. Next steps would be coffee followed by makeup and then deciding what to wear.
YQ: If we came to your home and looked inside your refrigerator, what would we find?
A: Champagne, white wine, rose wine and craft beer. Oh and hummus :) With a busy schedule, it's rare I get a chance to get to the grocery store so we're guilty of eating out a lot.
YQ: When it comes to relationships, what is the most important quality you look for in another person?
A: An easy going attitude. My husband is the most laid back person I know and his calm demeanor is often the most reassuring thing in my life when things get hectic!
YQ: How would you define your fashion style?
A: Feminine and girly :)
YQ: If you could shop for free at one designer store, which one would you choose and why?
A: Oof that's a hard one! This changes a lot for me but for now I'd have to say Miu Miu. I feel like there's a mutual adoration for glitter, bows and all things girly.
YQ: What's your dream travel destination?
YQ: If you could choose one superpower, what would it be and why?
A: The ability to fly! The amount of time I spend stuck in traffic getting to and from the city is ridic!
YQ: How do you deal with everyday stress and what would be the best way to relax after a hard day?
A: I think this is something I'm still learning to cope with. Working full time and managing the blog can be a lot. A strong support team is crucial as well as a good bottle of chilled rose in the fridge ;)
YQ: Where would you go in a time machine and why?
A: I'd love to meet Marie Antoinette :)
YQ: What's your favorite quote?
A: Cry a river, Build a bridge, Get over it.
YQ: What's an article on YouQueen you would share with your fans?
A: Let's do this one since I love Morocco: Magical Morocco: What Not To Miss While Visiting Marrakesh
