Being a creative in your field is quickly becoming a great way to build an empire and a successful career. The importance of loving what you do and doing what you love is becoming more evident in this generation more than ever before. Getting a degree and working in an office environment or a 9 to 5 is simply not cutting it with today’s youth. We are more interested in finding out what else is out there. Moreover, we are pushing ourselves to do more than what is expected of us. While we are at it, we are breaking rules. We are all talented and gifted. It’s up to you to figure that out. Have in mind that hustle beats talent when talent refuses to hustle.
Siyanda Bani is one of those gifted individuals who decided to do what she loves.
This is after years of learning the crafts of her trade in the corporate world. The South African beauty is the founding editor of “Glow Up“. This is a South African online platform that inspires through fashion, beauty secrets and lifestyle tips for both men and women. Siyanda Bani worked as a content producer for Cosmopolitan South Africa and Good Housekeeping South Africa. These are two widely appreciated magazines on an international spectrum. That experience gave her the knowledge she needed to start her own space. On it, she captures a modern audience with her great taste in fashion and incredible devotion to all things beauty.
Being one of her Instagram followers has allowed me the pleasure of appreciating her style tips, beauty hacks as well as indirectly experiencing the world as she documents her globe-trotting. Her page is filled with tasteful clothing; both classic and trendy pieces. Her enthusiasm for makeup is something we can all appreciate and her love for African culture and literature is quite impressive. She is a positive person that seeks to inspire her followers and readers as much as she possibly can.
Her sense of style is creative, classic with a hint of sophistication. She loves her high heels and trendy hand bags (is always in a pair of Jackie). When it comes to her hairstyles, she loves experimenting with different wigs. She terms herself as an aspiring gym bunny who loves a good glass of red wine. This statement brings out her relatable yet humorous side.
Here is a quick look at some of Siyanda Bani’s stunning style moments.
From her posts, one can tell that she definitely knows what she is doing and exactly what she is talking about. She updates her site as regularly as possible. Not only does she keep her readers informed on the latest beauty and fashion news but also educates them on practical fashion and beauty hacks to include in their everyday lives. Siyanda Bani is just one among the many creative minds in the world actively making money from their passion and talent. Following Siyanda could inspire you in terms of style, beauty and who knows, maybe even following that dream that keeps you up at night.
