Meet Utibe Mbagwu: The social media strategist, writer and content producer who managed Into The Gloss & Glossier’s social channels for almost four years. We love her style, and also love that Utibe currently uses her voice and social media prowess to spotlight content editors of colour, as well as share social media tips and case studies on the IG account @GoBehindTheScreens.
How do you start your day off?
During weekday mornings, I get up around 7, check to see if my kitty has enough food and water, then head to the bathroom to wash my face, brush my teeth, and then do my skincare routine as my girlfriend wakes up. She’ll usually make us coffee as I get dressed and do my makeup, and then I’ll sit at my desk in the living room to answer e-mails before work starts! Some days, I’ll fit in a yoga video or ab video to get a little limber before a day of working from home.
What’s going on in the background when you are getting ready?
My Abyssinian cat running around with morning zoomies, some Isley Brothers, and grinding coffee.
You never leave home without…
A perfume oil, hand sanitizer, a point-and-shoot camera, UZ lip balm, and earrings.
