About Me

Hey! My name is Bree and I'm a 33 year old single mother. Right now, I live in Ocala, Florida, but I am hoping to move out of the state soon. Someplace where there are four whole seasons. More than anything my dream is to go to Paris and I am obsessed with all things Parisian.

I have an 11 year old daughter, Lexus. She is starting middle school this year, I can't believe it! We have two dogs. A lil' jackaranian, Roxy who is the love of my life and Snooki, a black & white rotty/lab... both of whom are spoiled rotten.

My main passion is writing but I love to read, too. My kindle fire goes everywhere I go. I love to take pictures of anything and everything. You can never have too many. A picture really is worth 1,000 words.

I was a full time office manager until recently when the company went downhill and left me jobless. I've not been able to find anything since, so I've had to move back in with my mother (which is a probably a disaster waiting to happen!) but fortunately she is my best friend and always there when I need her most.

I have massive OCD when it comes to organization. I'm big into color coordinating, labeling and filing everything. I am OBSESSED with office products. Especially clips, pens and specialty papers.


I ALWAYS send, so if you have not received a swap from me and it's been a while, please contact me and I will gladly resend if need be.

I make it a point to rate swaps the day I receive them, so if I haven't rated you, I haven't received yours yet.

I miss the good ole days when everything was sent via snail mail. Everything has gotten so impersonal now. So please, feel free to write more about yourself than is required. I love getting to know new people!

If you are from a different country, PLEASE PLEASE send me something native to you. Especially if it is in a different language. Foreign items will get you much love and hearts galore!!!


Faeries (gothic not cutesy), hot chocolate, pina coladas, coconut (scent OR flavor), anything cherry or fruit punch, Mt Dew, post-its, celtic, new age, dragonflies, funky make up, fingerless gloves, I collect tall thin (not small) shot glasses, cala lillies, asian inspired items, fall scented candles (apple, pumpkin, cinnamon, spiced cider, coffee, maple, hazelnut, sugar cookies, etc), Skittles & Starburst are my favorite candies. As far as jewelry goes, necklaces have to be at least 21" and bracelets 8", rings are 10 or 11. Flip flops I'm a size 11.

Anything dark, gothic, emo, etc.. I love fantasy and the supernatural... I would love nothing more than for vampires and mythic creatures to really exist, but I'm not crazy enough to believe they actually do.

Colors: love black & white; chocolate & aqua; black & fuschia; Aqua, turquoise, teal, spring green, coral, dark pinks, dark purples, chocolate brown, gunmetal, platinum, charcoal

Themes: polka dots & stripes; parisian; asian; gothic; modern, shanny chic, boutique


TEA ( I do NOT drink it at all), not big on regular flat stickers (I rarely use them, they will most likely get re-swapped), coffee drinks (but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the smell), tie-dye, peace signs, rock n roll, fruity/flowery images, floral/powdery scents, Precious Moments, Americana, not super big on holiday items unless the swap calls for them.

Favorite Crafts

I LOVE making hand made journals/notebooks/address books/birthday lists/web planners. Anything paper related. And I'm a sucker for things I can alter. Especially if I can use scrapbook paper to do it. I work with picture frames a lot and in some cases I create manipulated photos to make personalized crafts including jewelry.

One thing I do not know how to do but would like to is sewing. I bought one of those mid-size sewing machines at a church yard sale but never learned how to use it. And I'd like to get into baking & cooking, too, but with just the two of us, there's not much call for it. I'd end up with a lot of wasted food.

My "crafting" does not only apply to the physical sense. I like designing desktop wallpapers, photo manipulating, etc, too. I also love to design templates. My dream was to one day open a print shop that I could make logos and business cards, forms & templates for all office needs.

Favorite Music

** I am OBSESSED with The Vampire Diaries soundtrack. I have almost every song from every episode on my YouTube playlists. I wish there was a way to turn all the YouTube Videos into MP3s so I could store them all on a giant flashdrive and listen to them whenever I wanted. Same with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. There's probably not a song in the bunch that I disliked. the music from both shows is epic. **

LOVE all things TRANCE, Chris Cornell, Tori Amos, Bob Marley, Portishead, THC, Kerli, Plumb, Depeche Mode, Cure, Calvin Harris, Lindsey Stirling, Naturally 7, Madonna (think Erotica album), Boyz II Men (original & all time best "boy band" with their amazing voices), Guns N Roses = best. band. ever.

Can't listen to country (only because it brings with it some EXTREMELY bad memories) and I HATE pretty much anything from the 60's/70's. 50's doo-wop is always fun and the 90's brings back fond teen moments....

Favorite Books

Horror is my favorite genre, and I love ANYTHING to do with zombies but I'm also into vampires, shapeshifters, witches, etc.. paranormal, gothic, fantasy types. The darker the better. Growing up, I read almost every one of Christopher Pike's books (we're talking 20 years ago when he first came around) and until recently, I had most of the original versions. I wish now that I had kept them all instead of trading them in. I was also a big fan of L.J. Smith long before TVD was a tv show. Stephen King is my favorite author but I also like Dean Koontz. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I have read more than half of Nora Roberts' books because I think she's a brilliant writer. Her books kind of just suck me in.

My all time faves are "Cell" by Stephen King and "The Season of Passage" by Christopher Pike and "Wicked Lovely" by Melissa Marr

Favorite Movies

Anything 80's, anything horror. Some Kind of Wonderful is my absolute all time favorite movie, with The Crow, Empire Records, Ever After and Fried Green Tomatoes running close. Denzel Washington is God in my eyes and I have seen just about everything he's been in. But definitely keeping an eye on Channing Tatum, too. To me, he is the next big thing. He's adorable and so far he's proven he can act well in any genre. Diane Lane is probably my favorite actress but I adore Zooey Deschanel, too.

Favorite Television

Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel are my all time favorites. I own both collections and have watched both entire series at least 3x each. Right now I'm obsessed with Bates Motel and Hannibal, but I also like Haven, Lost Girl, Justified, New Girl, Grey's Anatomy, Hart of Dixie, Game of Thrones, CSI, NCIS, Castle, Suits, White Collar, and One Tree Hill. Right now I look forward to The Vampire Diaries on a weekly basis, but a lot of that has to do with the shows eclectic sense of music and my obsession with Damon. (screw "Delana"... I'll take single Damon ANY day of the week)
