In this Celebrity Travel Addicts Q&A we meet fashion and lifestyle blogger Kristine Agabaian from Kris Chérie. Learn how this Armenian-American got hooked on all things French and why Paris will always be her eternal city.
I’ve always loved the idea of traveling, but I would say my passion for travel started when I was the West Coast Window Dresser for ZARA, and I was constantly traveling to different locations every week.
I used to travel and be gone 3 weeks out of the month, every month. I’ve toned it down now and travel once a month or once every other month for about a week. Sometimes more depending on work.
I want my audience to experience what I’ve experienced through the content that I produce. And most importantly, I want my work to be relatable. And I say that because I want people to relate to what I share and not feel like it’s out of reach and impossible to do the same. I want my audience to be inspired enough to want to do the same!
My top 3 destinations are Paris, Venice and Maui.
The destination I chose is Paris. Here’s a mini guide to all the must-see’s/do’s in Paris:
The list can go on, but I will include one last one:
I’ve visited a total of 8 different countries.
I’m Armenian so Middle Eastern Cuisine is on the top of the list. My other two are Japanese Cusine (I can eat an endless amount of sushi and ramen), and French cuisine (some of the best restaurants in the world are based in France).
My favorite restaurant is actually based here in Los Angeles. It’s a sushi restaurant in Toluca Lake called “Sushi Yuzu.”
Midnight in Paris
I would have to say Italy.
My boyfriend, Jivan.
Do work on my laptop or read.
Most of the places have been metropolitan areas, so I would have to say the most exotic was Maui.
Enjoy every second of it and take a lot of pictures!
My phone, camera, bottled water, my skincare products.
I’ve really been fascinated with Croatia lately, so I would have to say Croatia.

I’m currently based in Los Angeles. Los Angeles is such a huge city and so diverse, so there’s definitely a lot to do and see. And it’s all possible to do cause the weather is always so nice!
I’m always looking for reasons to go to Paris, but I’d love to visit a place I haven’t been yet, like Croatia, and even Armenia! My family is from there so it would be nice to visit my roots.
