Taking a little break from swaps starting June 1st,2014, hope to see you all soon :-)
Hey everyone! My name is Chiara, I'm 32 and I'm from Piacenza in the North of Italy.
I'm a makeup artist and I love my job, I'm such a beauty addict! I mostly do bridal work. I am New Yorker at heart, it was my home for a while when I was studying makeup and I adore it, it gives me so much inspiration and I always go back when I can! I love to receive anything New York and makeup!
I am a cat lover and owner : Nala is a 3 year old sweet chartreux breed cat and Olivia Pope is one year old and a black cat... I absolutely adore both of them! :) I love anything cat related, and I love all animals, except spiders and bugs...please don't send me anything related to spiders or bugs, I will have nightmares :D
I am a world traveller, I love meeting people and learning new things! My fave places besides New York are London and Amsterdam.
I like to call myself a home cook and baker, I love cooking for the people I love and love good food in general :) Being Italian I love pasta and pizza but I appreciate all kinds of food, some of my faves beside Italian are japanese, thai and mexican! I love recipe cards, books, items for cooking, baking and for the kitchen like towels and napkins!
I love coffee, tea, gum, sweets and chocolate, I am willing to try any flavor of the above items, except cinnamon, raisins and pistachios which I really dislike! White chocolate is probably my fave :)
Some very random loves of mine: Shopping, Christmas, teal and purple, Instagram, Broadway shows, daffodils, tulips, Frozen, The Lion King, berries, cupcakes, teddy bears, the American Flag, shoes, coffee, vanilla, coconut, tea, Carrie Bradshaw, photography, Pinterest, home decor, magnets, candles, stationary, stickers, butterflies, kraft paper anything (envelopes, cards, labels) makeup pouches and coin purses, socks, leggings (size Large, I'm a curvy lady :D ), jewellery especially small earrings and necklaces, rubber stamps, paper napkins ...
I live by myself, but we have a tradition back at my parents' house, we bring back fridge magnets and Christmas ornaments from every place we visit, the tackier the better :D It's a fun game our friends and family have joined, feel free to join as well!
One thing I want to mention is that Italy's postal service is definitely not fast, but I take swapbot seriously, send out as soon as I can and before the deadline, I promise you are getting my packages, contact me before rating me down, I will resend ! :) I always rate the same day I get my swap!
