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.
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-
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.
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.
MY FAVE FILMS INCLUDE:
The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Illusionist, The Painted Veil, Bourne Trilogy, Iron Man, The Avengers, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Hunger Games, Clueless, Moonrise Kingdom, Constantine, Pocahontas, Australia, Stardust, Thor, X Men, Legally Blonde, The Lion King, Skyfall, The Lord of The Rings, 25th Hour,
Dotee Dolls: Assorted beads (I'm running low!), felt, embellishments, spools of cotton and embroidery silks
Journalling/Letter writing: Gel pens, ink pads and stamps.
I really want to get into art/junk journaling so I am on the lookout for all kinds of emphemera and things like binding rings or treasury tags or tutorials. Any help is appreciated!
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!

2) Purple Dotee Doll (Flaked on by @Momoruth October 2011)
4)Song lyrics scavenger Journal #3 http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/103574 flaked by @asplashofamber whose profile is deleted
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.
This is a section to forward my thanks to and acknowledge any RAKs and Angels I've received from, I am so truly thankful and for each angel I receive, I aim to angel/RAK to give back to the community!
December 2014: Many Thankyou's to @Kiddo47 who Angel'd 'Kawaii Dotee Doll Swap', AND 'November Birthday Celebrations!' Swap. One of my favourite parcels received to date! Thankyou.
