Hi everyone, my name is Katie and I am 22 years old. I live in the UK, in a small town in central England - about 2 hours from London :)
I joined Swap-Bot to make some new friends, exchange ideas and items and just generally learn a bit more about life outside of the UK and Europe. My favourite swaps are the letter writing swaps and the tea swaps but I really hope to branch out soon and do some of the bigger package swaps!
I have a wishlist further down which is just a condensed list of what I am going to tell you in my About Me!
I absolutely love to write letters, my penpals mean the absolute world to me and some of them I consider to be my best friends. I'm always on the look-out for new pals so if you come across my profile please send me a message and we can begin a correspondence.
Tea is my favourite drink of all time - I love to try all different flavours as I've discovered the flavours we have in the UK are actually quite boring compared to other countries! The only thing I request if participating in tea swaps is not to send me jasmine and chamomile flavoured tea (I don't really like those flavours)
I love to travel, I haven't been to many places but the places I have been to have opened my eyes to the world and how amazing it is.
I love make up products but mainly nail polishes and lip glosses are my favourites. I also love lip balm and hand cream, my saviours in the colder weather!
I love learning about different countries, no matter what country you live in I will find something interesting about it. I also love history of both the UK and other countries. My favourite time periods from England are the Tudors and the Victorians.
I have very recently started doing some crafts and I would be grateful if anyone could help me!! I'm starting out with some ATCs but would also love to try making my own jewellery and cards.
Other things I like are: shopping, jewellery, books, reading, postcards, watching films & tv series, hot chocolate, magazines, fashion and Hello Kitty.
If you don't receive a swap from me, do contact me and let me know! Sometimes my letters/packages reach their destination quickly, other times they take a while.
Just a few examples of my favourite books, I love a whole lot more other novels:
Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden,
Chinese Whispers - Jan Wong,
The Radiance of Ashes - Cyrus Mistry,
Wish Upon a Star - Olivia Goldsmith,
The Boleyn Inheritance - Philippa Gregory,
Where Rainbows End - Cecilia Ahern,
Brixton Beach - Roma Tearne,
The Gift of Rain - Tan Twan Eng,
The Pirates Daughter - Margaret Cezair-Thompson,
Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen,
Wild Oats - Veronica Henry,
The Russian Concubine - Kate Furnivall,
Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
I love romance/chick-lit, historical fiction, drama, comedy, classics and fantasy novels.
Lost in Translation,
Pretty in Pink,
Fear and Trembling.
The Big Bang Theory,
The Secret Circle,
Sex and the City.
I have seen these on other profiles and thought I shall create one.
That's it for now, I'm sure I'll add to it later.
The colour pink,
Anything with frogs/snakes/rats on.
Generally I'm simple to please but those things are the ones I don't like to receive :)
