WCW: How did you choose the name for your blog?

LV: I was going through some rough times in my life; I was just plain angry at the world. I went to bed that night, and when I woke up I began scrolling through Instagram. I stopped at a bomb photo of this plus-size model, which at the time I didn’t know that the model was Essie Golden. I mean, she slayed. I was so inspired by her fierceness. Out of nowhere the name Beauty and the Muse surfaced. The name encompasses who I am entirely. And that’s what I named my blog.

 

WCW: In 10 words or less what can people expect from your blog?

LV: Expect visual stimulation from all angles.

 

WCW: What are you enjoying most and least about blogging?

LV: What I most enjoy about blogging is the expression. I’ve always loved to express myself in creative ways. I am also a bit of a rebel. So with my blog, I get complete control over what I put out. I love that people (readers) get a glimpse into my creative psyche when I post something. What I least like, is probably the business and technical aspects of blogging. I don’t want to deal with the SEO’s or annoying marketing gimmicks. I kind of just want to blog.img_9013

 

WCW: What’s your favorite quote?
LV: “When I look into the future, it’s so bright it burns my eyes.” –Oprah Winfrey
That’s been my favorite quote since I was like 12 years old.

 

WCW: We’re all glued to something! Name 3 things you can’t live without.

LV: 1. The Walking Dead  2. Pizza  3. Cellphone

WCW: What’s your favorite blog post and why?
LV: The post called, Style Blog X Self  is special to me, because I wrote it days before I turned the big 2.8. I was self-reflecting on my life, the fashion, and the world.

 

WCW: What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

LV: This is a toughie! I think one of the best advices I got was from my writing mentor, Taylor Polites. My manuscript got some criticisms, and it tore me apart. I started crying when we talked about it. He passed me a handkerchief. I blotted under my eyes. He said, “Leah, this is all a process. Great things don’t happen overnight.”

 

 

WCW: How do you unwind?
LV: Walking Dead, Candy Crush, or a good novel.

WCW: Name your favorite place to shop online and in-store.
LV: Forever 21, it’s affordable and they are true to their plus sizes.

 

WCW: List 5 random facts about yourself.
LV: 1. I hate spiders. 2. I don’t eat broken cookies. 3. I model walk in the hallway when I’m cleaning. 4. When I go to restaurants, I make them sweep under the table. 5. I used to be allergic to bananas.

 

 

WCW: What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?

LV:  This is a funny question, because literally I am so prepared: Kylie Minogue “Timebomb”, Beyonce’ “Bow Down”, and Rihanna “Presh Out The Runway”.  I have so many more!

      I’m not quite sure if Leah was professionally trained. However, I know one of her close friends is a freelance makeup artist.
