About Me

I'm an introverted, very quiet person. Indoorsy, catlover, couch potato. I love whatever I consider beautiful, and I like to be surronded by pretty things.

I like to write letters about books, everyday life, cultural differences and local traditions, my dolls, anything I'm interested in.

I am obsessed with cats, dolls, whatever series I'm watching at the moment, history of costume, and pretty much everything I've listed in hobbies and interests (read further)

SUPER VERY OH SO IMPORTANT

Please don't send me anything that doesn't fit in an envelope (this is great for those in a budget, like me). Argentina's mail system doesn't have a regard for gifts, so everything is treated as a purchase and lots of taxes are added, which I can't afford at the moment.

So, until things get better, thank you but no, thank you.

If we're partners for a profile related swap, please choose things that can be fitted in an envelope. Otherwise, I won't be able to receive it.

Thank you :)

Comment: Thank you for the detailed review, what a pity you didn't like the book. at least it's from your to-read pile now :D I hope you find better books to read after this one :) I have never read anything by that author and your review didn't really motivate me to change something about that :D Best wishes!

Comment: Thanks so much for joining the swap, and sharing your thoughts of the book. :) I haven't read anything by Sidney Sheldon, actually. My mom was a fan of his books when I was really little, but I never tried one. Maybe I'm not missing much! Sorry it wasn't a good book for you! <3 <3

Comment: Thank you so much for your review. :) I actually didn't enjoy Outlander when I read it, but I think it has to do partly with the time period. Like you said, the setting, the time period, is really a huge factor in the historical fiction books I choose. Thanks for giving this swap a try, and challenging yourself! :)

Comment: Thank you for your book reviews. Personally, I don't read historical fiction/non-fiction, but the second book, the one written over 2000 years ago definitely intrigues me. It's not something I would read, but I'm definitely curious as I love hearing about history!

Comment: Thank you for the book reviews. I'm sorry to hear you didn't like the second book. I also received advanced copies of books to read and review. So far, I've been lucky and they have been great, but I am assuming it is not always the case.

ESG: Spread some Art! profile decoration

Hello, how are you? I have so many favorite art works from different periods and different artists. It's really hard for me to choose only one... One of my all time favorites is gorgeous and naughty painting by Jean-Honoré Fragonard. It's called The Swing. I actually ha an honor to see this work few times at Wallace Collection in London. For me it presents the true spirit of Rococo period.

:) enjoy!

(So...I couldn't get the original artwork I wanted to upload to work, so I'm going with Alex Grey's "kissing"...he's another psychedelic artist who I absolutely ADORE! But, you should also check out the art I originally wanted to share. She can be found on Instagram @smallmoon_ and is an amazing young artist whose trippy work gets me right in the feels.)
