About Me

UPDATE 21st August 2015: Hello, I've been away from swap-bot for a number of weeks. I've literally just completed my masters degree. I will be back swapping in September, but with news back in late June that a relative close to me is terminally ill, I will not be swapping too often and I will not be doing tags or forum gifting. I am back this month to send out a belated forum wish to a swap user, catch up with a swap I never received,and edit the groups I am in. All being well, I will see you all in September :) Best, Emily

PLEASE NOTE: I always request proof of postage when sending my swaps out, and keep a record of these receipts for my international swaps. I'm currently assuming 2-5 weeks eta for global postage. If you have concerns that a swap has gone astray,or seems to be taking a while arriving,please drop me a message as soon as possible.

Other Things about me:

I am 24, living in the east of the UK. I work as a Fashion Portrait Photographer and Retoucher for an online clothing company part time, and I have just completed my Masters! :D

I have M.E which I have suffered from since I was 15. It's currently manageable but there are bad days and annoying symptoms. I'm always keen to chat with other sufferers of the illness.

Favourites...

FOODS/SNACKS FROM OVERSEAS:

-Reese's Peanut range- Milky Way French Vanilla- Oreos- Hot Tamales- Pocky- Hello Panda- Kit Kats in flavours from Japan- Meiji Gummy Chocolate Tubes-

MUSIC:

I love almost any genre of music excluding country and rap. I tend to enjoy listening to new mixes, so I am always playing 8tracks on my ipad whilst I'm studying or relaxing on my own in the evenings. As a result, I love flatmail playlist swaps.

BOOKS:

I am open-minded when it comes to books. I'll read long novels or short stories. Fairytales or real-life. Im not a big fan of war (WW1&2) orientated novels.Pop up books make me smile, and I find books with illustrations inspiring :)

I'll try any book once!

I do a lot of reading for my Masters in Photography, particularly recently I've been interested in theories around Menlancholia, Nostalgia and Memory.

I dont mind if books are secondhand,as long as they are in a good condition and not on the brink of falling apart.

I still love fairy tales/the fantastical. I love Tolkien's scholarly approach to writing his LOTR series and the connotations behind it. Yes, I enjoy Harry Potter; the books that really got me into reading when I was a kid. I like Young Adult Fiction as well as Adult fiction. I do not like Twilight, but have succumbed to The Hunger Games series.

  • Black Licourice
  • Lavender Scents. Never used to bother me, but now I get headaches if it's too strong :(
  • This should go without saying, but anything that is badly damaged, dirty or in a very,very tired condition!
  • Neon colours in clothing.
  • Turkish Delight, there's only one brand I like, so better not risk it!
  • Coffee. Although I WILL try flavoured teas like from Whittard, I just can't stick the taste or normal tea or coffee. I like it in cake but the beverage is too rich for me. Sadface.

Seeking Angels For:

I have yet to/ have never received swaps Or re-sends from the following. The smaller swaps I am seeking Angels or private swaps for. The larger swaps I know nothing can be done!

1) Newbie Lucky Dotee Doll (Flaked on by @Rubberstampcollector November 2010)

2) Purple Dotee Doll (Flaked on by @Momoruth October 2011)

Info for current/regular swaps

TEA / HOT DRINK SWAPS I am still new to the tea/hot drink swaps on here, and I do not have a lot in terms of sachets. But gradually building a swapping collection and discovering new and different teas.

  • Favourite Brands/Flavours: Twinings Cherry and Cinnamon, Twinings Winter Spice, Lipton Apple and Cinnamon, Moomin Black Tea: Strawberry/Rhubarb, Teekanne Raspberry and Vanilla.

  • I do not like NORMAL/PLAIN tea, as the flavour makes me feel sick, but if you send it to me, I have a very appreciative family who like plain tea and coffee.

  • I would like to try flavoured white teas

  • I LOVE tea with vanilla in it, and strong,sweet fruity teas. I love vanilla chai, and cherry, and I adore Hot chocolate, ideally water-based. Any flavour of hot chocolate is good for me!

DOTEE DOLLS: I love dotees of all varieties! I do have a dotee wish list from tags/swaps I have been flaked on.I would love a Kawaii themed dotee especially , but I'm not fussy. I just love handmade creations. I am happy to do private swaps for dotees.

Comment: WOW! I was really suprised when I got your parcel. It was absolutely perfect.^_^ the Peter Rabbit was my favorite, it's also one of my favorite illustrated books. :-) Normally there are a lot of things in these packages, that I don't use or like. But yours was really amazing. I think I'll have to control myself to not eat too much of the cookies.:-o There's just one thing I won't use, that's the red nose, it reminds me to much of clowns. But I like that the profit of it is going to charity. But I have a little nephew who would like this red nose, so don't be upset about it. But I loved every other item. Thank you so much for these heavenly gifts.:-D
