Name: Amanda (Ama) Scriver

Title: HBIC of Fat Girl Food Squad and Community Manager for Gastropost.

Birthday: October 7th, 1983

The Best Part About Being a Libra:  So many bad-ass people that I know are Libras and it means we all get to celebrate our awesomeness together.  Shout-out to mom and dad for making me a New Years baby!  But really, the traits of a libra are deep-rooted in me (balance, peace, partnership) and I find I'm always drawn to others that have the same within them.

Favourite Libra Traits: As a Libra, I'm hyper-focused on others and how they relate to me, which some people can observe as being fickle, indecisive or aloof.  It's hard because I truly don't mean to come across as such, but since I approach everything I do in life with tact, diplomacy and balance - I more often times than not come across as firm but strong.  To me, I love these traits, they help me be the boss bitch I am and as we all know, so many people are afraid of a strong, independent woman.

Advice for Gift Shopping for a Libra: I love things that are one-of-a-kind, stylish, artistic and beautiful.  I want something that makes a statement and something that will make an impression (in my mind).  For example: my current partner bought me a beautiful Moleskin notebook for my birthday.  In the corner of the pages, he wrote a sweet note or word to describe me.  While a Moleskin is beautiful, this extra step made the gift truly one-of-a-kind and memorable.
