About Me

--- I have too many envelopes at the moment, please only send me envelopes if you are sending lettersets thank you. ---

My name is Ines, I'm 23 years old and I love the magic I find in little things. Books are everything to me and I appreciate anything art related.

Handmade things make me all fuzzy and warm inside. I LOVE drawings and I don't believe there are people that can't draw, I just think everyone draws differently and I quite like that.

I study Political Science and International Relations so social issues are a big interest of mine. I also like to wander around photographing and discovering beautiful new places and observing how other people behave (in a none creepy way, I promise.) I've danced my whole life, so Ballet and Contemporary dance are very dear to me. I'm also a big cat lover! My little one's name is Alaska.

Don't worry about not being crafty or creative enough or anything like that... What I appreciate is the time, love and effort people put into swaps :) I am open to private swaps, send me a message if you'd like to trade something.

CURRENT INTEREST: I really appreciate if you can write me something about resilience, how you overcame something that was difficult in your life (heartbreak, loss, health issues). I am in need to be inspired and to believe that humans are capable of enduring much more than we think we can.

Favorite Books

There's too many of them. Mostly classics and poetry books. Some of my favorites include Bukowski, Vladimir Nabokov, Milan Kundera, José Saramago, Haruki Murakami....

Poetry Slams are a recent love of mine and I'm always trying to find new spoken poetry, so if you have any favorites I would love to hear them

Favorite Television

Obsessed with the TV show F.R.I.E.N.D.S and the movie Frozen. Anything related to this will be deeply appreciated!

Postal loves

  • Tea (I love Clipper and I don't have it here)
    • Hot cocoa, cappuccino or flavored coffee - I love all hot beverages
    • Stickers of any kind (Currently need big stickers!)
    • Envies - mostly handmade with maps/journal and recycled brown envelopes
    • Envelopes with turtles drawn on it!
    • History stuff /Literature stuff
    • Stuff related to politics (propaganda of any kind included)
    • Newspaper/Magazine articles (I will love you forever.)
    • Newspaper comics
    • Magnetic bookmarks
    • Used books
    • Anything related to feminism/ LGBT
    • Handmade items
    • Adult coloring books
    • Sweets & Chocolate (sour candy is a favorite)
    • Ephemera, mostly vintage
    • Rubber stamps (not with animals please)
    • Red or purple lipsticks
    • Face masks /bath&body items
    • Washi Tape
    • Small poetry books
    • Any stationery
    • Art Postcards
    • Photographs
    • Things with turtles, elephants or cats - obsessed

Favorite colors: blue, lavender.

Would rather not...

  • sci-fi theme
  • white chocolate (I'm a bit alergic)
  • religious items
  • liquor candy
  • really bright colors (like bright yellow) and fluorescents/neons

Please don't send me anything even remotely racist, homophobic, misogynist or hateful towards a person/group. I like to keep my life a hate-free environment and I do not support narrow minded ideas in any way. (I doubt anyone would, but just in case)

Little note

The post gets crazy sometimes but I do not flake, so send me a message before rating me low so we can figure out what happened.
