About Lerato

Lerato Bambo

Lerato Bambo is a South African born, New York – based lifestyle and travel blogger and digital marketing consultant. After graduation I decided to go on vacation to Istanbul where I discovered a new sense of independence, cultural exchanges, food experiences & adventure, and I ended up staying in Turkey for a year. Since then I have had the opportunity to develop personal brand relationships and worked with British Airways, Contiki, Ford and many more people, while also providing consulting services with corporate brands such as IMAN Cosmetics.

With a background in beauty, e-commerce and marketing, I understand both sides of the industry and aim to be an inspiring influencer that encourages others to take that leap of faith to do what they’re really passionate.

“My Life from a Bag” is a digital destination for those who appreciate travel and seek new experiences; My content will always reflect and stay true to my interests.
