Blogger Meet & Greet with Leah V.

Lakeside Mall: Lord & Taylor

Sterling Heights, MI


(I’m searching for the perfect fall ensemble for my model for the event.)

I was contacted by Nicole, store manager of Lord & Taylor, to talk about their new and improved Plus-Size section including brands from Jessica Simpson, Calvin Klein, and Michel Kors, just to name a few.


(My beautiful model, Amanda Sweet, in her 1st outfit.)

This was Lord & Taylor’s first blogger meet and greet in-store. I decided to get two models and style them live. I also was able to style myself from head to toe in L&T’s plus section.


Strutting her stuff. All black with a splash of flair and color.


Outfit #2 with paparazzi…A.K.A Style bloggers.


Outfit #3 says I work hard, but I play harder.


I also styled my bff, Madinah. Love the warm-toned accents.


Want to give a huge shout-out to all my blogger buddies that came out to support.

Here are my ladies from Style Trifecta.


Lil Miss JB Style was in the house!


Thanks to the friendly customers who stopped by.


Thanks to Nicole who allowed us to rummage through her store. Haha.


Oh, hey, there’s Eden from Chic in the Tropics.


Baby Dallas, Eden, and Thaad.

All smiles 🙂

Tyra Beauty Review

Detroit, MI

SAM_2776 (1)

So as you guys know, I love-s my cosmetics. I can’t always apply it, but I love it nonetheless. I got some cool products from Supermodel, Tyra Bank’s new cosmetics line. I made a vlog about it on my new YouTube Channel: Leah V. Daily Tyra Beauty Review Check that out. And you can also see my beauty regimen as well.

In the gorge selfie above, I am wearing several of her cosmetics. Smack My Fat Lash (Mascara), OOPS Liner, Line ‘Em, Fashion-Able Blush (Cream), Cheek In A Stick, and Light In A Stick.

“We’ve created innovative, luxurious and easy-to-use products to help you look and feel your fiercest—in just minutes!”

First off, all these products are hypo-allergenic. There are a few liquid eyeliners that I can’t use because they burn my eyes. Opps Liner was very gentle and I loved the pointed tip and easy glide applicator. It also has an “Oops” tip on the opposite side where you can actually erase messy wing lines and sculpt the point to perfection. The Smack My Fat Lash was also gentle on my eyes and didn’t clump up upon application. I used Line ‘Em on the outer lower water line for extra drama.


WordPress won’t let me rotate this pic! Anywho, turn your computer sideways. Hehe. I used Fashion-Able Blush and Cheek In A Stick on my cheeks. The first one is in a cute little jar and the other in a stick. Both are so easy to blend and lasts all day.

After a long day, my makeup lasted and I was satisfied with the products. If you want to check out the rest of Tyra Beauty or purchase any of her cosmetics go to Tyra Beauty

These pics are super dark. Forgive the lighting. Yall like my dress, though? It’s from Forever 21 and so is the necklace. I shop there so much that I think I should just start working there. Ha.
