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.
Ama's Top 5 Picks from The Chic Canuck!
"I love items that have more than one use and I adore the colour pink. This would be the perfect go-to in my makeup bag."
"My skin is all over the place: sometimes super sensitive and dry and sometimes oily and gross. I'm always looking for a good exfoliator that will not only regenerate but stimulate."
"My partner is a barista and we kind of collect coffee mugs. This one is just perfect for our already crazy collection."
"Anyone who follows me knows that I have a huge obsession with pizza. This piece of art speaks to me in so many different ways. I need it for my home."
"When I saw this dress, I was like: yes must have. Sadly, as a women of size - it would never fit me - as it just goes up to a size large. But hey, a woman can dream right?"
Thank You, Ama!!
