She Has Four Coffee Makers

Quinn is so dedicated to her coffee habit she has four different coffee makers. "I start each day with coffee and catching up on emails. I am obsessed with coffee and hot tea," she tells Express UK. "I have four different coffee makers and methods. Depending on my mood, some days I make a cappuccino, somedays French press, and if I am feeling crazy I will have a hot tea. I also have some really fun cappuccino stencils that add a fun touch to the morning. My favorite cappuccino stencil is a picture of my idol, Marilyn Monroe."


She Loves Hiking

"If I have time to work out, I will incorporate something light like stretching, or a hike," Quinn says. "I enjoy horseback riding and reading books on manifestation." Walking and hiking have many physical and mental health benefits, experts say. "A lot of people have a hard time getting motivated to start exercising," says exercise physiologist Katie Lawton, MEd. "But walking is simple, right? We do it every day… You need to make it part of your routine. This is about adjusting your lifestyle for your health. If you had a dinner date, you'd make sure to block off the time. Treat exercise the same way."


She Cooks Dinner Every Night

Quinn married tech entrepreneur Christian Dumontet in 2019, and loves her newfound domesticity. "I've been cooking," she tells People. "I've turned this hoe into a housewife, and I'm Martha Stewart-ing, every night, making homemade pasta and doing the stuff I never had the time to do before. It's actually really great. I do enjoy it… I'm serving it up on screen, I'm serving it up on the kitchen, and I'm serving it up in the bedroom — everywhere, I'm serving it. But yes, I'm an amazing cook. I actually am, I promise."


She Embraces Her Post-Baby Body

Quinn had baby son Christian in May 2021, and accepts her physique is different now. "I'm definitely not putting pressure on myself," she says. "My body and my hormones will never be the same, but that's something I really embraced and I'm kind of rolling with it."

"Your body changes over time; it takes a while to get close to your pre-pregnancy shape and size," ​​says Shari Lawson, MD, medical director of general obstetrics and gynecology at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. "The rectus abdominal muscles are stretched during pregnancy in a way that makes it impossible to exercise them during that time… Life after a new baby is not going to be the same. There is a steep learning curve in parenthood, but your new life will be filled with thrills and wonderful memories."


She Takes Four Hours to Get Ready

Quinn's entire look takes at least four hours to put together when she's on camera. "It's quite a process, I'll tell you that much," she says. "For interviews and certain events, other people do my makeup, but I actually do my own makeup because I love putting on my make-up. My hair takes a minimum about two hours, depending on what I'm doing to it. I give myself a four-hour window from when I have to leave my house. It's a good four hours, just putting the outfits together and wardrobe, and stuff like that. It's really tedious. It's a production. I'm not just throwing on a T-shirt: I'm planning everything. I'm like, 'Okay, what's the scene, what's the background? What are we doing? Am I going to be walking? Am I going to be sitting? Is this outfit going to be wasted? Is it being showcased?' I take all of that into account."
