Dasia: What is it like being a LA based blogger ?
Krys: A lot of people blog/vlog in LA so people may think it’s easier being a Blogger but it’s actually a lot of work. As a blogger, your schedule never stops unless you turn off all outlets of social media and technology. You have to continuously work hard, be on top of your game (especially e-mails), be open to new ideas and still be true to yourself.
Dasia: What are so good restaurants to eat at in LA ?
Krys: Well, I love tacos. Like I live for tacos and Korean food so I recommend Korean BBQ (Kang Ho Dong, Ahgassi Gopchang, Moodaepo II), El Taurino, Gracias Madre, Shin’s Tacos, and just any street taco truck in LA (seriously).
Dasia: Have you came across any celebrities being in LA?
Krys: Of course! I grew up in Beverly Hills so I saw Leonardo Dicaprio while I was in my car and Jennifer Love Hewitt cruising around on a different day. I saw Steve Aoki at Bottega Louie, I just saw Justin Bieber at Hyde, I see the #Songsters in Weho, and I see famous blogger/actresses throughout LA.
Dasia: What inspired you to start your blog ?
Krys: I actually started modeling for fashion brands and slowly picked up blogging in 2014. What inspired me the most was I wanted to do something I was head over heels for and I really, really wanted to find that passion.
Dasia: How long have you been blogging ?
Krys: I’ve started blogging in 2014 but actually transitioned to Instagram/Twitter. I will be blogging Lifestyle, Food/Travel, and Beauty very soon – stay tuned!
Dasia: If you could collab with 2 other bloggers who would they be and why ?
Krys: I’d love to collaborate with @guy_tang (hair guru and unicorn maker) and @ireneisgood because she is so inspiring, so real, and so amazing!
Dasia: Is blogging your fulltime job ?
Krys: Blogging is a full-time job and I also have side or part-time jobs.
Dasia: If you weren’t blogging, what would you be doing?
Krys: I would be a Creative Director or a Graphic Designer
Dasia: What are the key elements of taking a perfect #OOTD picture?
Krys: I came up with (LAST) Lighting, Angle, Smile, and Tagging. Lighting and having the angle down is key. Smiling or having your sexy stare is a plus. Tagging/Hashtagging other brands or groups is a must for #ootd #ootn.
Dasia: What are some good cameras to get for anyone who are beginners?
Krys: Everyone raves around Canon T3i or 70d because it has amazing wide lens and a self-swinging view screen where you can see yourself in frame.
Dasia: How many days out of the week do you take #OOTD pictures ?
Krys: It all depends but on average, 2-4 days a week.
Dasia: What inspires your style ? How would you describe your style?
Krys: Be who you are. If you think you can pull it off, pull it off with confidence and make it your own. My style would be casual/sporty + girly just like my name (Krys + Khloe).
Dasia: Where are your go to places to shop?
Krys: I usually do all my shopping online but my favorite place to shop would be The Grove.
Dasia: What is your intake on being a lifestyle blogger vs a fashion blogger?
Krys: Lifestyle is sharing more than your fashion; Lifestyle means you’re sharing your life on social media. You share what you eat, where you travel to, what you like, who you’re with and it gets hard because sometimes you want some things private.
Dasia: Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
Krys: In 5 years, I see myself loving what I do, providing for my family financially and spiritually, and settling down with the love of my life.
Dasia: How did you come up with the name “SpotKrysKhloe” ?
Krys: Well, I grew up with my brother (8 years older) calling me Krys because he wanted a younger brother. In the beginning of my college years (2009), my friends started to call me Khloe because to give me a more girly name so I became KrysKhloe. The “Spot” comes from traveling and eating a lot, so I came up the concept “SpotKryskhloe’s (food) (travel) (fashion) (beauty)”.
Dasia: How do you feel having over 30K supporters following your journey ?
Krys: I absolutely adore and #love my supporters! I just want to thank my loyal followers and their unending support and love. I love you so much!
Dasia: What are two fun facts your followers dont know about you?
Krys: I love it when I have Korean food for breakfast and Tacos for dinner or a snack. I wash my face in multiples of 7 splashes usually totaling to 21 times because I’m obsessed with the number 21 (I don’t have OCD but I’m weird).
