Many South Africans were first introduced to Lerato Sengadi either through her time in the Big Brother Africa house back in 2007 or through her highly popular social media accounts under @leratolicious and no matter how they came to know of her, many have continued following her journey because there's just something about her.
Anyone who follows the Soweto-born events-co-ordinator-turned-brand-developer-and-influencer can attest to the fact that it is clear what she loves; her family, her friends, her man, her travels, her hair and pretty much anything lifestyle related.
Sengadi was recently brought on to Nescafe Classic's "Kickstart your morning rhythm" campaign alongside the likes of popular choreographers Sne Mbatha, Lee-Che Jenecke, Tarryn Alberts, Thabo Moloto as well as Khanyi Mbau and Mome Nale Mahlangu.
As part of the Nescafe Classic's revamp, they're encouraging South Africans to kickstart their morning rhythm and are also giving you a chance to win a trip to one of four coffee destinations Vietnam, Mexico, Brazil and Kenya - but more on that later.
We had a chat with her about a few of her favourite things as well as what gets her going considering the fact that she has so much on her plate.
1. One thing we've come to learn (from following you), is that you LOVE to travel. Have you been to any of the destinations in the competition? If so, what was your experience like?
I've been to Mexico. What an adventure. Started in Cancun and lived it up on the beach. Spending my days on day beds sipping champagne and tequila cocktails. I also got to see one of the 7 wonders of the world - the ancient ruins of Chichen Itza.
From there I travelled to the historical hub and capital, Mexico City. Apart from the amazing food, climbing to the top of the ancient teotihuacan pyramids - the highlight was visiting the home of legendary Frida Kahlo.
2. What does your daily get-up-and-go routine consist of? How do you get your kickstart?
My day starts with a get up and go tune, this always sets the mood for the day. I usually play this really loud while I have a cup of Nescafe coffee and get ready for a full day ahead.
3. Can you share what one new experience (travel, adventure or lifestyle) you've been itching to have?
I'm absolutely itching to visit France. To dance under the Eiffel Tower, sip champagne in Champagne and eat a baguette with cheese along the Champs Elysees... and of course visit the Mona Lisa.
4. What is one lesson you have taken away from working with the other influencers/choreographers involved in this campaign?
That we all kickstart our day the same :) . Without Music and coffee our mornings would be awful.
How do I Enter the Nescafé Classic competition?
All you have to do is buy a jar of the new NESCAFÉ Classic in stores, dial *120*130140# and follow the prompts to enter.
