About Me

Hello!

My name is Laura and I am 24. I live in England with my parents ,2 brothers and a cat called Beau.

I am part of postcrossing (a website where you send postcards to people all over the world) and I really enjoy it. I was recommended swap-bot by a friend so thought I would try it.

I love receiving things in the post.

My favourite things to do include watching films (I am a huge film fan), going to the theatre, going to restaurants, baking, cooking. I love all things vintage and my favourite eras are from the 30s till the 50s. I love reading too

I like to pretend I'm Wonder Woman and eat lots of lovely cake. I adore going to the theatre and I wish I could survive on a diet of Mars Bars, fondant icing and cheese but alas I cannot. My ambition is to become queen of the cats and live in a cottage with an overgrown rose garden....or a secret garden like in the film.

I like keeping things I don't need and putting them in a 'memory box', buying things from etsy, bringing any conversation back to a film reference, dreaming of becoming a low-rate Barbra Streisand impersonator (joke), sleeping and eating.

Favorite Music

I am a big fan of music - I love classic rock, metal, country music, pop, punk...I will try most things!

I have seen Roxy Music, Misfits, Goldfrapp, Fleetwood Mac, Dolly Parton, Britney Spears in concert and am seeing Lady Gaga in October.

Some of my favourite musicians are - Music - Fleetwood Mac, Barbra Streisand, Black Flag, The Clash, Cher, David Bowie, The Doors, Fiona Apple,Heart, Iron Maiden, Kate Bush, Madonna, Metallica, Misfits, Patti Smith, Rancid, Tom Waits, B.B. King, Glenn Miller, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Led Zeppelin, Wilson Pickett

Favorite Books

I read a lot, mostly autobiographies/biographies of 30s/40s film stars.

Some of my favourite books are Layla & Majnun, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Love in the Time of Cholera, Veronika Decides to Die, Lady Chatterley's Lover & High Fidelity

I also read a lot of the medium of film and film theory.

Favorite Movies

Films - A Matter of Life and Death, Dogfight, Terminator 2, Paris Texas, Secretary, Come Back to the Five and Dime Jimmy Dean, Singing in the Rain, Before Sunrise/Before Sunset/Before Midnight, Nashville, The Dreamers, The Jerk, Mallrats, The Purple Rose of Cairo. The Wrestler

Favorite Television

TV - THE X FILES, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Parks & Recreation, Bottom, The Young Ones, RuPaul's Drag Race, The US Office, Sex & the City, Battlestar Galatica, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Wonder Woman

Comment: Thanks for the cards! I loved Ladybird books growing up. You shouldn't have taken the trouble though--the swap was just for a written card, right? Anyway, thanks again!

Comment: Thank you very much for the inspiring words, Laura. I have to confess that I did cheat and read them all at once. But I'll put them in the jar, and read them again. Thanks again. Rebecca

Comment: Thank you so much! I utterly love everything you have sent. I particularly like the postcards and monster stickers! :D Also paperchase is one of my favourite shops! An epic parcel of win! :D Xx
Response: You're most welcome, I am so glad you liked the package. Paperchase is one of my favourite shops too. I could spend forever looking around in there (and also a lot of money haha)

Comment: Hi thanks for sending the items. I gave you a 5 because you did include 5 items but the point of the swap was for it to be a made/decorated kit in a theme not just sent in an envelope. The links on the swap showed the idea. I would have given you a heart otherwise. Sorry. I'm not trying to be mean but it took me 3hrs to make mine.
Response: I am so sorry, I obviously mis-read the swap. I am so sorry that I let you down.

Hi Laura, Thank you for the lovely card, (I love cats!!) I'm so jealous that you're going to see Streetcar! It's one of my favourite plays, but it was sold out before I could get tickets!

Best Wishes, Rachael
