Style Icon: Sanaa Lathan

I have loved Sanna Lathan since seeing her in the hit movie – Love and Basketball. That movie was and still is one of my favourite movies to date. I haven’t seen much of Sanna Lathan since then but I did come across a movie she did in 2006 on Netflix some days ago. The movie Something New was really good. I loved the storyline and her character Kenya McQueen was fun to watch. The movie reminded me of this lovely lady and how stylish she is. Sanaa Lathan has a fit physique and she looks good in pretty much everything. I love seeing her all glammed up. She cleans up nice.

Style Icon: Sanaa Lathan

This style icon looks amazing for her age. I was shocked to see she will be clocking 49 years next month. She can easily pass for a woman in her thirties. I love her fashion sense a lot. Her personal style is quite relatable. I can easily see myself wearing most of the outfits I see her rocking. Her style is always on point!

The pink piece she has on in the picture is a beauty. It is a lovely stylish summer piece. I can see myself wearing it and I love the heels she has on a lot. The dress, hair, and legs are doing all the talking, and it works great. She is always effortlessly chic.

In an interview with Yahoo Style, Lathan talks about her fashion and style, and what makes her style world go round.

“In my day-to-day life, I’m not a girl who’s going to walk around and do errands all glam. I love comfort, so my style is whatever’s comfortable. In the spring and summer, I’ll wear a dress with flip flops; it’s easy. I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a ‘fashionista.’”

Comfort and style go together in my fashion world, so could explain why I am drawn to Sanaa Lathan’s style. What do you think of her style? Are you a fan?

 

 

Why you should hire a social media manager

If you have a business with an online presence, you should hire a social media manager. Every business should have an online presence. This is 2020 and one thing this year has taught us is the importance of being able to carry on your business outside your regular office. Having an online presence allows you to do just that and this is where a social media manager comes in. Social media management is one of the many freelance jobs I do. I am a dedicated social media manager to a couple of clients and I really enjoy my job. Social media is like my playground and I enjoy managing various clients’ platforms even more than my own.

Here are three reasons why you should hire a social media manager now if you haven’t done so already –

It gives you time to work on your business

Hiring a social media manager allows you to have extra time to work on your business. Social media is a lot of fun but it can be time-consuming, especially when you are not sure of how best to come about it. Outsourcing your social media management takes the hassle of dealing with your platforms on a day-to-day basis, and allows you to focus on running your business.

A good social media manager understands social media

Social media is forever changing. The algorithm rules vary from platform to platform, it is a job in itself to keep up. For instance, the hashtag rule on Instagram changes regularly, it is tricky to know how to go about it if you are not comfortable managing business pages on social media.  A good social media manager understands the platforms and keeps up to date with the rules and regulations for each platform.

Social media management comes with a strategy

The first thing I do with a new client is to discuss a social media strategy. That way we are sure of the goals and objectives of each platform and I can work towards them. It is always good to have a clear strategy to work with, that way you are able to set weekly/monthly goals for each platform and track progress.

If you are after a social media manager for your business, you can get in touch with me via email – fashionandstylepolice@gmail.com, to discuss further. I have some availability this month and I am eager to take on new clients. Thanks for reading. Have a great week ahead.

 

 

Beauty Muse – Beverly Naya

Hey Beauties! I can’t believe it is August already. How did July end so quickly? Where is the year going? In other news, the stunning Beverly Naya is the beauty muse for August on Fashion and Style Police. The talented British-Nigerian actress has been on my radar for some time now. I love watching her movies; she is a great actress and she does a fantastic job interpreting her roles. This beauty recently produced a documentary on Netflix titled “Skin.” The documentary explores colourism which is the discrimination of people based on their skin shades. I am looking forward to watching “Skin” at some point this weekend. It has been on my list of what to watch for some weeks now.

Colourism is a big issue in Africa, especially in Nigeria. Many men and women feel they have to lighten their skin to look beautiful. Most of them grow up hating their dark skin tone and end up going down the skin bleaching route to look lighter. I am happy to see more and more awareness is being raised about colourism. It is usually buried underneath racism, that people forget it is a huge problem in the African and Asian communities.

Back to the beautiful Beverly Nada, I think she has amazing skin. Her skin glows every time I see her. I am also a huge fan of her makeup. It was always so flawless.

Here are some excerpts from an interview she had with Pulse some months ago –

Her skincare routine

My skincare routine is quite simple. I just literally drink lots of water and lots of fruit as well, specifically oranges because they have a high level of citrus.

I guess I need to eat some more oranges. With skincare, the simpler they are, the better the results usually.

“It’s very good for the skin if you want to detox. I use cocoa butter, shea butter, and coconut oil. I wash and cleanse my face twice a day, it’s very important.”

Washing and cleansing the face twice a day is really important. I love using coconut oil as well. It is such a great multitasking product.

What do you think of Naya as a Beauty Muse?
