About Me

I'm in my late 20s. I have a beautiful (almost) 3-year old black lab named Luna.

Favorite Books

I love picture books (especially the touch-and-feel ones) and young adult fiction.

Favorite Music

Indie folk/pop/rock are my favourite genres.My most favourite musicians are Tegan and Sara and Sarah Blasko.

Other favourite artists include: Amanda Palmer, Angus & Julia Stone, Brooke Waggoner, Eisley, Hello Saferide, Mumford & Sons, Stars, Regina Spektor and The National.

I dislike: Muse, Radiohead, Slipknot, death metal, country or bling-bling-hoes-in-da-hood-style rap.

I'm a closeted top-40s pop lover. Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, 80s and 90s pop are my secret loves.

Favorite Movies

I watch a fair bit of non-English films. Some favourites are: Amelie, Rosenstrasse, 8 Femmes, A Chinese Odyssey 2002 and Le Papillon.

Some of the best films I've seen are: The Times of Harvey Milk, The Black Balloon, The Hours, V For Vendetta, Mean Girls, Donnie Darko, Before Sunrise, Spirited Away, To Be Or Not To Be (1942), Mulan and To Kill A Mockingbird.

Favorite Television

30 Rock, Being Erica, Big Bang Theory, Bones, Buffy, Criminal Minds, Dr Who, Medium, Scrubs, Spooks, and Torchwood.

I like:

  • Felt and patterned fabric (especially vintage)

  • Brooches and necklaces (a bit on the charming nostalgic side, but not so much the flowery ones)

  • Mix CDs

  • Postcards

  • Tegan and Sara newspaper/magazine clippings

  • Magazines (favourites include Frankie, Peppermint and Dumbo Feather. I like Apartamento too but it's far too costly!)

  • Labels (especially bookplate ones)

  • Whimsical sketches

  • Tote bags

No, thank you:

  • Sanrio (e.g. Hello Kitty) or other cutesy characters. Generally, I do like cute things, but not in excess.

  • Not a fan of make-up, but I do like lip balm (e.g. Burt's Bees, Lush).

  • Things with skulls, cigarette smells, coffee, blood, clowns, insects or anything depicting violent, homophobic, sexist, racist, political or religious beliefs on them.

Comment: Thanks so much for the wonderful pins you've sent me! No, we don't know poptarts, but if they're so delicious as your pin looks, that's really a pity (^_^). Love the little matryoska pin a lot! Thanks too for the papers, great for atc's.
Response: Thank you so much Ilona! So glad you got them and that you liked them! That is a shame indeed. Pop Tarts are actually rare here too. There must be more Pop Tart love in the world.

Comment: Thank you so much for the song descriptions. I listened to some of the songs after reading the notes you gave and it totally enriched the listening experience. The extra songs were an added bonus.
