About the blog

About the admin

Hey, there! I'm Lux. The introvert in charge of About Life and Love and Dear You,.

I'm a pharmacist by profession, a frustrated globe trotter, and a writer at heart. To some family members and close friends, I am the corniest joker ever---to which I strongly disagree. 

Currently, I'm balancing my time working on my dream business and pursuing my passion for writing, finding my one true love while building my own happily ever after, and chasing my dreams as I live in the reality of the present.
My blog has transformed through the years as I continue to evolve into the Proverbs woman I aspire to become.

Some of my works have been published on Thought Catalog and The Praying Woman.

Through this little space on the web and in the every day things that I do, I hope to someday leave a dent in the world---the universe rather. ^_^

About Life and Love is where I share my travels and where I gab about life and love that I hope would encourage or make people feel they're not alone in their journey.

Visit my other blog Dear You, to read unsent letters or if you're looking for someplace you can send yours.
