Learn about the Face behind the Brand
Hola, Bonjour, HI!
My name is Latasha and I am currently living in the beautiful city of Cape Town in sunny South Africa! I am a Psychology Hons. graduate and proud #GirlBoss and founder of Lakota Inspirations.
The brand Bella Monsoon was established in 2018 and has since become an integral part of my life. I currently create both photographic & video content around a multitude of topics with a particular focus on beauty & lifestyle.
I am the queen of teaching myself new skills (if I do say so myself) so often I love to share what I learn with others. I take all my own images, edit all my own Youtube tutorials and travel vlogs and even design and upgrade both my brand and company websites! My literal motto for life: She believed she could; and so she did!
My daily life is often what inspires the content I produce as because I don’t have a regular 9-5, I am always open to following where inspiration may lead me!
I am a self-taught makeup enthusiast who recently discovered a major passion for creative and SFX makeup. But that being said, I LOVE a good glam face beat too!
If beauty is something you are super into or even something you would like to learn more about, then my Youtube channel might just be your new BFF!
I post a multitude of tutorials from beginner and budget friendly looks to detailed SFX looks ALL with full product lists and tips (because don’t you just hate when you tubers never mention the actual products they are using?!)
As mentioned, I have a flexible schedule which allows me the opportunity to be able to travel (as much as my budget allows!)
I also have the MOST amazing furry children- my two chihuahuas, Tinkerbell and Taco- who accompany me on pretty much all my explorations!
That means, I know literally all the good spots that are furry-kid friendly! And because I love luxury BUT I also love saving $$$, I make it my business to know how and where to spot the BEST deal for the absolute BEST accommodation!
Over the past years, I have been teaching myself many aspects of design and photographic techniques.
A year and a bit ago, I upgraded my camera and equipment and so currently, I shoot content on a variety of really amazing gadgets from a Canon DSLR camera to a DJI Mavic Pro Drone.
Besides shooting content for my brand and blog, I also shoot the product images for my company- Lakota Inspirations. This is something I am passionate about, so you can definitely expect some tips and tricks heading your way soon!
