#GalGetter is a blog series celebrating empowered SHE-E-O’S doing boss things:
1. Leah, tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start Millioneiress (now LEAH KIRSCH)
I studied business at Fordham University and also interned in fashion, at Louis Vuitton and Chanel, which built a solid foundation of knowledge for me to start Millioneiress. After breaking up with my college boyfriend I had a lot of free time on my hands, which sparked my desire to start creating. Being single, I had a newfound sense of independence and wanted to empower other girls to be independent, proud and whole. I started asking a lot of questions, found an amazing screen printer and gathered my best and most supportive girlfriends for a photo shoot. We had a launch party in NYC where everyone was decked out in Millioneiress. It was the ultimate girl power party.
2. Our motto is to be informed, empowered and shameless – what is one thing you do daily that keeps you feeling confident?
Empowering other women to feel independent is empowering for me. To know I’ve made a positive impact on just one girl’s life through this brand is powerful motivation to keep going. I want women to feel unafraid taking their own step forward and not be held back because of self-doubt. We all have insecurities and self-doubt, but we can’t let that dictate our actions. We need to make our flaws our assets. I have a tattoo that says ‘1/1’ to remind myself everyday that I’m whole on my own. It’s important to remember because when we forget that or loose that, we jeopardize our happiness and confidence in ourselves.
3. What is your Dream Threesome?
Angelina Jolie and Jude Law. She is effortlessly sexy. Him, the accent – ugh – let’s be real here.
4. Body positivity is such a struggle with today’s youth – what is one thing you love about your body?
I love my neck and collarbones. I barely show them, but it feels very intimate when someone touches that area. I also think it resembles strength because it holds up my head, which holds my brain and my brain is power. Also, I like my ass.
5. We’re always looking for new products, toys and tips to keep our subscribers safe and satisfied. What is your favorite sexy time staple?
A nice pair of booty panties. The cut has to be perfect. And a tip to feel confident when you’re naked – walk around your home naked, or in your underwear and bra, or lingerie. I think it’s so important to get to know your body on an intimate level, and to feel comfortable in your skin when you’re alone, so that you feel empowered during sex. Don’t feel ashamed to tell someone you didn’t have an orgasm. If you want one you should give it to yourself, and then guide your partner. The way to reach that peak is to close your eyes, not think about anything else and just feel. It takes time. It can take a long time. Don’t stress it.
