Taking a Leap of Faith (an update)

I know it is not Monday, and I also know many Mondays have passed without a new post. But this is all going to change, and here is why… 

It’s been awhile.

I feel like I’ve been saying that in a lot of my posts lately (which are few and far between). The last few months have been a bit of a challenge.

I’m the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Libero Magazine and creator of #StopFitspiration. I believe in God, wearing eyeliner, and eating dessert. I was born in Canada, grew up in Africa, and now call Vancouver, BC home. I am also a makeup artist and a YouTuber. My greatest passions are writing, speaking, and advocating mental health. In my spare time, I enjoy running, playing Super Nintendo, and spending time with my giant furbaby Zoey. On YouTube I talk about makeup; on Libero I talk about body positivity and mental health; and on my blog I talk about life, beauty, spirituality, and dessert.
