About the author/admin

Hey, there! I'm Lux. The main author, editor-in-chief, social media manager and over-all admin of About Life and Love and Dear You,. I am also the Virtual Assistant in the City.

I'm a pharmacist by profession, a frustrated globe trotter, and a writer at heart.

Currently, I'm doing what I've always dreamed of doing: pursuing my love for writing and working away from the crowd, surrounded by our dogs. In short, I work from home. This allows me the flexibility to still travel as often as I can and accept other online gigs.

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. I also contribute on Write Tribe.

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. 

I have also started accepting article submissions that are informative from the latest technology features to dating and life advice.

Read my letter for you, Dear Faithful Blog Followers.

About the blog

Started as Lux Thinking Aloud (2011), changed to Bared My Soul (2013), and now called About Life and Love (2015), this blog is a collection of life lessons, travel diaries, and personal views about life and love that reflects almost everybody's story.

Surprisingly, some readers are sending life and love questions seeking advice or asking for prayers. About Life and Love is no Love Doctor, but you are encouraged to do the same. (Ask Lux)
