After her time starring in The Bachelor franchise (which concludes another season tonight), Leah Block bought a one-way ticket to New York City, with a Hammitt in hand and excitement in the air. "I love how fast-paced and hard-working people [in the city] are," she says of the big move. "Life is just now beginning in New York City; when I'm walking down the street, I feel like this is my time to shine."
While Leah moved to NYC solo, she found herself surrounded by a great support system. "Bachelor Nation is great in the fact that it is a big family. You can go to any state and there is someone from The Bachelor who has an open door and a glass of wine for you if you want it." Often spotted around town with series favorites like Robby Hayes, Olivia Caridi, Izzy Goodkind, Lacey Mark and this season's stand-out, Corinne Olympios, Leah emphasizes that reality television includes an entire communal element the audience may not see. Leah and The Bachelor gang bond over social media, style and Leah's self-proclaimed passion, food. "My dream career is to work with food!" she exclaims. "I would love to host a show on the Food Network."
Leah's creative side shows both in the kitchen and her style - she transformed her favorite Hammitt, Pierce, by adding a Deluxe strap to the blocked leather bag.
After visiting our Chief Cheerleader Tony in NYC, Leah gave her answers to our signature Hammitt quiz.
