meet leeloo.

My name is Béatrice – I chose the pseudonym Leeloo years ago when I was creating my first email address and needed a 'cool' alias; at the time, I loved the film The 5th Element by Luc Besson, in which the main character was called Leeloominai something something... in the movie, Leeloo turns out to be a conduit of the 5th element, and the 5th element turns out to be love, and love saves the world. Yes, yes, I'm an idealist, a utopist, deal with it!

I'm half-English/half-French, I grew-up in Switzerland where I went to international schools and made friends from around the world. I have lived in 7 countries, over 3 continents, speak 4 languages and am now currently living in Barcelona, Spain. As you can tell, I'm addicted to change and need to communicate, especially as I love breaking down the barriers of both national and cultural stygmas. However, everywhere I live, I have found it important to create a home, that way regardless of where I am, I always have that feeling of belonging to a place. These days that means lagging around a cat, a lot of furniture, artwork, books, clothes and too many shoes/handbags!

I am passionate about my friends, interior design, food and wine, politics, art and culture, yet my work has nothing to do with that: I'm a project manager/consultant for Legal, Finance & Tax orgs within the media, internet and technology sectors. Having said that, I believe my creative nature is what makes me good at my job - every project is a blank canvas, all my team members are actors and after dredging our way through complex projects, the finished product often feels like a work of art!

I'm continuously searching for inspiration visually, intellectually and emotionally, a blog is a great way to express that. Looking forward to connecting with you, so if you have any questions, feel free to email me at mail@leelooelibera.com.

Be selective in your battles,
sometimes peace is better than being right.
