Edibles

If you are my swap partner in a swap that involves food-stuffs, here are some ideas!

CANDY: I LOVE candy! If there is candy around, I'll be eating it! I prefer chewy/gummy candies, not so much hard ones. Some of my favourites are:
• twizzlers
• haribo (anything!)
• hi-chew
• "swedish" candies (fish, berries, etc)
• Wonka candies (nerds, bottlecaps, etc)

TEA: I drink SO much tea! Usually around 3 liters a day. My favourites are:
• chai
• fun flavours of roiboos
• earl gray
• lavendar (actual lavendar, not just flavoured)

OTHER GOODIES:
• timtam cookies
• pocky
• cookies & cream

VEGETARIAN

Allergic to ginseng & catnip (weird, I know!)

Wishlist

•I love vintage union stuff, especially banners and buttons. I would be happy with any union, though postal unions would be especially fantastic!
•I would love to get Kawaii stuff! Especially older sanrio, though not Hello Kitty or My Melody (my favourites are Keroppi and Bad Badtz Maru). I have been searching for sanrio stationary and am not having much luck at all. So, if you have any awesome kawaii stationary laying around, you can send it my way!
•I also really like Diddl stationary, which I also can't get here.
•If you are in Aotearoa, I would love love LOVE anything to do with L&P! I was lucky enough to visit your amazing country several years ago and I seriously couldn't drink enough of the stuff. SO GOOD! 😍

Thanks in advance!

Dislikes

•Cheap washi/deco tape - please don't send me washi from the dollar store or Wal-mart; I quite dislike it and have no use for it
•Coffee (can't drink it, though like coffee themed items)
•Makeup (I don't wear any)
•Earrings (my ears are gauged, so normal earrings don't fit)
•Scents (unless it's all natural, I get crazy bad headaches and likely won't even open a package of there is any perfume)

Comment: Thank you for this FABulous swap Charity! When I received your swap yesterday I went directly to Barnes & Noble to look for FLOW. I had been hearing of it lately and your letter convinced me to check it out. I got the Chaos issue and I love it! I will certainly be subscribing. I found another cool one that is similar from the UK called Daphne's Diary. Thank you so much for everything, you made my day xoxoxo
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! 😊

Comment: Thank you for the log! It's always nice to see a list of new books to read. I love that you read so much. I average around 100 books/year. My library loves me. I'll definitely check many of these out, though crime/thrillers/horror books are my cup of tea. Many, I think, will fit in with what I do enjoy. Thank you again!

Comment: Thanks for the great reading log! I am also doing the PopSugar challenge as well as Book Riot Read Harder. We have several books in common, I have several that you mentioned on my shelf and I also read Ms Marvel, the first two collections. I'd love to write back with my 1st quarter reads, we seem to have very similar reading interests :)
Response: Sure! I would love to see what you read in the first quarter of the year! Do you need my address?

Comment: Props for 1). Reading 33 books this quarter 2). handwriting your log 3). using a variety of colored paper! I enjoyed reading your log and have some questions--1). By "feminist killjoy" I assume she's not killing the joy of feminists, but is a feminist and kills the joy of sexists? 2). Did you read the complete series of the Karin Slaughter books, or will there be future installments? 3). Which reading challenges are you doing? 4). Isn't Jon Krakauer great? I read Into the Wild for a college class, I can understand how he would make you want to climb Everest and never hike again. Additional comments: 1). I have been meaning to read Alice Walker. She wasn't required reading for me in high school or college, and I checked out one of her audio books, but had to return it before I was finished. 2). I also liked "If you ever have the chance to read this, don't." 3). My bookclub read White Trash last year, but I didn't start it and now feel less inclined to do so. 4). Octavia Butler is another I've meant to read! 5). You used cool stamps! I hadn't seen those Canada ones before.
Response: Hi! To answer your questions: 1. Yes, she is a feminist who kills the joy of the sexists. 2. I am currently reading the last (or most recent) Karin Slaughter book in the Will Trent series. I love these books, so hopefully there will be more! 3. I am doing the Read Harder challenge from Book Riot and also the one from my local library (I work there and created the reading challenge!). I'm glad you enjoyed reading my log, I was worried about how long it was!
