I am quite a passionate person, I love anything related to my interests and I could talk about them for days! If you have time, Give my profile a detailed read and you'll learn a bit about me and my life.

I come from a smoke free/ alcohol free home. I have a furbaby bunny called popcorn but he stays away from my mail as to not get hairs on anything :)

Favorite Crafts



Hunter green, blue, and brown.

I absolutely love hunter green, and deep shades of green like emerald/forest green too. Green is my absolute FAVE colour so if you can, please send things in deep shades of green!

I like shades of browns too as it completes the vintage look, and matches my journal theme.

I like these styles: celestial, cottagecore, arty, elf core vintage, goth, steampunk, wicca, grotesque, dark, [16:28] Horses, red pandas, foxes, birds of prey and woodland creatures! I love love love animals! [16:28] This section isn't me demanding you send these, but if you are sending to me in a profile based swap, or just want to make me happy here is a list of my loves :)

I LOVE MUSHROOMS!! If you have anything with a mushroom to share please send it my way! :))

I love anything vintage, animal (ESPECIALLY HORSES), travel, celestial or botanical themed.

I like aesthetics like cottage core, woodland themes, mushrooms, steampunk, victorian, dark academia, witchcraft, gothy,

Vintage music sheets, vintage ledger paper, vintage vintage vintage things! Old papers make me SO happy!


I love ephermera, mainly of vintage tickets, pharmacy lables, etc, tea cards and cigarette cards

ATCs, or anything drawn or created by you for that matter.

Envelopes are always welcome since I run out a lot.

Washi stickers, sticker flakes, rub on transfers, vellum prints, notecards, all sorts of crafting shapes and pieces

Bullet journal supplies, inky pens the type that feel really nice to write with, nice stickers, brushpens etc

Pretty things to stick on my wall

LGBT themed things! I am lesbian, so any lesbian themed flags or rainbow themed things are appreciated!

Feminism based things

Handmade/hand drawn things

I love pocket bacs from bath and body works but we do not have one in england.

I like string jewellery, as I find chains uncomfortable so if you want to send me something make sure it is on string!

Earrings are fine as long as they are not cheap or too heavy, I prefer dangling charms than studs but nothing that is so heavy it pulls down too much!

I also love candles, and wax scented wax melts and will enjoy practically any scent. If I do not like it I can give it to my mother, who also loves candles.


Here are a list of themes/items that I don't particually like. Please try to avoid sending these just as it means I have to find someone else to like them.

THEMES: * Kawaii * Religious (unless it's something like a pretty old church, or has importance historically or personally to you unless it is preachy or to convert me) * Holiday themes (Christmas, Easter etc) * Girly

ITEMS: * Beauty Products * Keychains * Kiddy/Reward stickers * Napkins * Free/promotion postcards

Food and Tea preferences

I would like to try food from different countries, but I am vegetarian so please send something veggy friendly.

For savory food like crackers/crisps I like plain salted flavour, but you can send me a flavour unique to your country if you have any! I love paprika flavour but can't handle anything too spicy! haha

I love chocolate with nuts inside or salted caramel, or even just plain. I like both milk and dark chocolate but I am not very fond of white chocolate.

I don't really eat sweets or candy apart from licorice so I would prefer to not get them, as I would have to find someone else to eat them. My only acception to candy is if you find vegetarian friendly gummy sweets as I love them but most contain pork gelatin which I can't eat.

I have no allergies, but I don't like things like fruitcake, raisins, pineapple, etc.

I LOVE weird or unusual tea flavours if you have any. I also like sweet teas, blueberry, vanilla, chocolate, cakes, caramel, mint or anything red berry flavoured.

If you are sending from the USA, I would love to receive David's tea as it is my fave brand but we do not have it in the UK.

I like being sent both loose teas and teas in packs.
