Bikini Body Guide

Like a lot of people, I’m obsessed with Kayla Itsines’ workout guide. It’s only 30 minutes, which means I can easily squeeze it into my days. 

And more with Denise Lee…

Favorite Instagram account to follow:

I love @amooolia. She’s the cool younger self I wish I was. 

What do you love most about your work?

I love that our customers get so much joy out of their product - it’s an amazing feeling. 

One piece of advice you would give your 18 year old self:

I would tell my younger self not to be so focused on checking things off the bucket list. Instead, go explore and enjoy all the experiences that come your way.

Your most recent culinary discovery and obsession.

I spend a lot of time in Montauk during the summer, and there’s a place that I love called Happy Bowls that serves açai bowls with granola and fruit. It’s also a chain, so there might be one near you! 

Midnight snack of choice:

Your motto in life:

Don’t live with regret. 

Your real life hero and why:

My dad. He is a mentor to me in every way, and inspires me to be a better person. 

The skill or sport you’re dying to learn:

I’d love to learn more about photography. I love looking at beautiful photos, but I can’t for the life of me take one myself. 

Your last takeout order:

Steak salad and chicken orzo soup. 

Where does your credit card get the most use?

Uber is holding my credit card hostage!
