I’m Krystal the blogger behind the lifestyle blog, The Krystal Diaries. I was born in Brooklyn, raised in Queens now living in the ‘burbs. I’m a city girl at heart. I started my blogging journey in 2013 as a creative outlet and what a journey it’s been!

I don’t believe in niches because I’m a girl with many interests and I think that’s ok! I love sharing my travels, the books I’ve read, fun easy drink and dessert recipes, beauty finds and so much more. I like to spread positive vibes and empower women, not compete or be negative. 

More about me:

 Newly turned 30-year-old New Yorker living on Long Island
♥ I’ve lived in NY my whole life
 I love reading all sorts of books even though I don’t always have time
♥ Trying to live a healthy balanced lifestyle but I don’t believe in crazy diets
Coffee addict
Wine drinker
 Animal lover
Dog mother to a German Shepherd named Rocco
 Bachelor’s Degree in Language & Literature
 Brunch is my favorite meal of the day
 Working a 9 to 5 and dreaming of traveling

    Our blogs sound very similar! And I can totally relate to the everyday job not being fulfilling thing. I guess that’s why blogging is such a huge passion of mine as well. Well, I can’t wait to follow along!

      I was very nervous to start blogging at first but felt like I needed a creative outlet. I hope you enjoy following along!

        No problemo. Is it okay if I ask you a quick question? Is your blog self-hosted? I am currently working towards expanding my blog and I love the set up of yours…

            Thanks so much! Currently in the process of going from third-party hosting to self-hosting. Very excited about the transition 🙂 I’ll reach back so you can see the final results 🙂

    I finally started my own blog after thinking about it for so long. I’ve always had a passion of writing and I love reading blogs. Finding your page and reading your story is really inspiring and makes me feel better about actually starting! I know how it feels to work full time and have so much other stuff going on and still feel like something is missing.
