Iconic Look: Lauryn Hill Signature Look

The lovely Lauryn Hill is the Iconic Look for the month September. I grew up listening to The Fugees and I have always been a huge fan of this amazing woman. Her sultry voice is amazing to listen to and her type of music is still one of my favourites. I find myself listening to The Fugees on my Alexa every now and again. Their albums are evergreen.

Lauryn Hill’s style was and still is so cool. She always stands out from the rest for all the good reasons, and it is clear she is always true to herself. If you are after the latest trends and styles, you won’t find them on Lauryn Hill. She is not that type of style icon. However, if you are after a true signature look, then she will be right up your street! Her style has evolved in an amazing way and she still looks so good, like she hasn’t aged a day. Another thing I really like about this amazing woman is her hair; it always catches my attention. Back in the days, she made me love locs so much! They looked amazing on her and all her other hairstyles always stand out and so do her accessories. If I am in need of a scarf or turban inspiration, Lauryn Hill would do the work for me.

As you can see this stylish Queen hasn’t changed so much. She still looks fabulous and her new low cut suits her so much. I think Lauryn Hill’s iconic look is a signature look. This beauty ticks all the boxes and I would love to hear some new music from her.

Beauty Muse: Elizabeth Taylor

Hey Beauty Lovers! It is a new week and I am loving the amazing sunny weather we are currently experiencing. The first post of this week is all about the Beauty Muse of the month. The beautiful icon – Elizabeth Taylor is the Beauty Muse for the month of September. I have always admired this woman. She was one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Her beauty was on a whole different level with the amazing facial features and stunning hair. Elizabeth Taylor is definitely a beauty muse all day, everyday. Do you agree?

Beauty Muse: Elizabeth Taylor

One of the things I really loved about Elizabeth Taylor is that she aged beautifully and naturally, which was a lovely sight to behold, in comparison with some other celebrities who have tried to fight Mother Nature.

Here are some Elizabeth Taylor’s best kept beauty secrets:

She did her own makeup

I found it very interesting to discover that Elizabeth Taylor applied her own makeup on and off screen. Her makeup always looked lovely so she must have been very talented.

“When I was younger, for a long time I didn’t wear any make-up in films; when I did start to wear make-up, I always did it myself,” she once said.

Elizabeth Taylor didn’t like conditioners

This beauty muse did not like conditioners. She felt conditioners made her hair too sleek and she preferred the bouncy look. Thankfully, with the advancement in haircare products, there are so many options for hair conditioners, ladies with bouncy hair don’t have to worry about dealing with a too sleek look.

This Beauty Muse loved drugstore brands

Elizabeth Taylor loved affordable skincare brands. Her favourite was Jergens and she used the lotion religiously.

Charities of the month: IDAS and The Children’s Charity

Hello everyone! This month, Fashion and Style Police is featuring two amazing charities. Whoop whoop!!

IDAS

The first is IDAS; a domestic violence charity in Yorkshire. IDAS stands for Independent Domestic Abuse Services. The charity was set up in 1977 and previously known as York Women’s Aid. IDAS is one of the first refuge providers in the UK and it all started in 2 bedroom flat donated by a local businessman in 1977. The charity has grown over the years and it now also covers other areas outside York. IDAS is the largest specialist charity in Yorkshire and the charity supports victims of domestic violence and sexual violence.

IDAS is doing an amazing job. No one should have to any form of violence, so it is great to see a charity supporting victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse. You can support the charity by giving here. Donations go a long way in helping those who need a place safe away from violence. You can also look at supporting IDAS by getting involved in voluntary work.

The Children’s Society

The second charity of the month is The Children’s Society. It is a national charity working hard to transform the lives of young victims of abuse, exploitation and neglect. The charity has been around for over 140 years and won’t stop until every child’s hope is alive. I think The Children’s Society is an amazing charity doing great things for the next generation. The vision is a society built for every child and their goal is:

By 2030 we will have overturned the damaging decline in children’s well-being, setting a path for long lasting growth.
