Heya! I'm Danielle, but feel free to call me Dani if you like.
I'm currently living in Florida with my amazing Husband, Bobby. We love to travel and move around a fair bit.
I tend to be very laid back, but I can be very serious as well. I can also be extremely stubborn with certain matters. I can also be very, very silly at times and am definitely still a child at heart. I'm very much a live and let live kind of person. I sometimes ramble on and on...
I am very, very curious by nature. I'm not easily offended, so don't worry about that. I love learning about anything and everything. I also love to explore and try new things. I am absolutely fascinated by Ancient History and Foreign Cultures. I also love languages and am currently focusing on learning Korean.
I'm originally from Georgia, though I traveled a lot growing up. I will always be a Peach at heart and Georgia is where my roots remain deepest.
My current style is very influenced by Lagenlook, Mori Girl and BlackForest/Dark Mori.
I am fortunate to be married to a wonderful, supportive Hubby who encourages my swap-bot interests. He enjoys looking through my mail with me. He loves spicy things, dark chocolate and is a complete Tobasco sauce freak. He puts it on EVERYTHING! (ick!). He also likes interesting pens, zombies, moleskin notebooks and origami.
We collect matching couples items. Yes, we are cheesy like that. Especially pink & blue matched sets.

Witchy whimsies, if its something that seems like it belongs in a witch's cabinet, I'll probably love it.

I go through a lot of fiction, but most fiction I just rotate through using Paperbackswap.
I really enjoy cosmetics, skin care and spa/pampering products and like trying samples of different brands. I enjoy using face masks, eye patches, bath soaks and such. My favorite brands include Etude House, Tony Moly, Too Faced, Missha and Skinfood. I mostly wear pastel or metallic nail polish.
Style: My style is mostly Lagenlook, Mori kei & Blackforest/Dark Mori. Because of the style, I generally wear M-L-XL tops/dresses. And size S-M leggings or tights. I wear a lot of scarves, loose socks, thigh high socks. I wear pastels, neutrals and dark colors. I avoid neons and gold color and gold jewelry. But do wear silver, pewter, brass, copper and bronze metal jewelry. I like jewelry featuring organic pieces (bone, stone, ect). I wear natural and glass pearls, but I avoid plastic. I love linen & lace. I love wearing handmade & vintage things. I mostly wear hair pins / hair sticks, but sometimes I also use pretty clips. I love bracelets & fun earrings.
