Check out the answers below to find out! If you have a question you would like her to answer then comment below and we will send it to her.
1. How do you stay looking so young?
Your skin is certainly your body’s biggest indicator of what is going on with your body! I believe true beauty and youthful wisdom, no matter how many times it’s been said, come from within. You must first take care of your body and mind and then the rest will follow. Peace of mind and wellness are imperative to restoring your youthful glow and overall happiness. I have been using Sudden Youth’s Instant Non-Surgical Facelift Kit for over 25 years now, ever since it launched! The results are impeccable. I also believe in eating healthy, reasonable exercise habits, staying out of the sun and hydrating, hydrating and hydrating!
2. How can I be trendy even though I am petite and overweight?
You can be fabulous and trendy at any size! Embracing your size with spunk and attitude makes a statement that outshines a few extra pounds and inches. First and foremost, it’s all about keeping healthy and taking care of yourself! If you feel good about yourself then your confidence is the sexiest accessory to any outfit! Also, pencil skirts are great for lengthening the line of the body and vertical stripes add height to any frame. A perfect pair of nude pumps are a must! The age-old classic nude pump is perfect for elongating the leg but also don’t be afraid to wear the sassy stacked platforms or boots on trend for fall! I also love taking clothes that have been in my closet for years and making them current and trendy by accessorizing them.
3. Lea I have been married for 28 yrs. You seem to be married the longest? What would you say is your secret?
That is a great question! Many people ask what kind of toll my hectic lifestyle full of entrepreneurial ventures and planning for the Black’s Annual Gala takes on my marriage. No matter what, I am a wife and a mother first and a hard-working mogul second. It is all about priorities and for me nothing compares to the importance of taking care of my family! I’ve even been known to pack up RJ to go be with my hubby during his traveling. This may not work for all families, but my point is don’t be afraid to do whatever it takes for your family. Roy, as busy as he is, even takes time to check out the Real Housewives. It’s great being able to have your life captured and at the very least we can laugh about it together! Sounds like you are doing just fabulous in your marriage, 28 years is a long time! All I can say is keep doing what you’re doing and make sure you are taking the time to take care of your man.
4. Where can we buy your handbags?
My handbags are currently available exclusively at www.leablackhandbags.com – but watch this space as we expand!
5. What are your favorite clothing brands?
What a lot of people don’t realize about me is that I’m really just your average jeans and T-shirt kinda gal! I do occasionally love to engage in a little bit of retail therapy (who doesn’t?) but I’ve never been a believer in spending a gazillion dollars on an outfit you’ll wear for one big night out and promptly discard to the back of the closet for good. Sure, when Roy and I go out for date night – I keep things spicy! – I like to feel good and dress up for the occasion but on an average day in the life of Lea Black, you’ll find me in something comfortable and functional. On top of that, I go to a lot of business meetings and my professional look is user-friendly. I prefer simple and basic… Ralph Lauren, DVF for day, Donald Deal, Rene Ruiz, Valentino for evening and jeans, jeans, and more jeans whenever I can. Accessorizing is the key: great handbags, scarves, jewelry and sunglasses.
