Hello! I'm 36 and live in NZ with my partner and our four cats.

I really enjoy reading, going to the gym, writing and receiving mail, playing games and going on walks. I love board games and computer games, the games i generally play at the moment are : Animal Crossing, Guild Wars 2, My Time at Portia and Stardew Valley

Plus i don't mind a little bit of home reno every now and then.

Tv shows and movies: Marvel, Lucifer, Line of Duty, Nancy Drew, Buffy and Angel, Firefly, The Witcher, Star Trek, Brooklyn 99, the Good Place, crime shows such as Vera or the Rookie....so many shows! I also love food shows.

I love postcards, If sending Naked postcards, a card you think i will like will be great - but i also like:

  • your location

  • nature/flowers

  • art postcards (from your gallery or wherever!)

  • scenery/castles/beaches

  • sea-based, ocean life, lighthouses, etc

  • animals and butterflies

  • Harry Potter, my favourites are luna, neville, the golden trio, basically everyone else lol

  • marvel or other fandom based cards

  • Pretty cards that you think are pretty!


Mostly i like swapping happy mail :)

I love to receive

  • Non-location postcards, art or drawings, animals etc, that i can reuse and add to my collection

  • Tea

  • Stickers

  • Notecards or writing sets

  • washi tape

  • Pens/pencils and funky stationery

  • Magnets from your town/area/country

Favorite Books

I like a lot of books! My favourite genres are Crime, mystery and urban fantasy. I don't always love paranormal romance though LOL it's gotta have a plot :)! I prefer some escapism and happy books - fun fiction rather than serious classics most of the time.

FAVOURITE SERIES The Innkeeper series by Ilona Andrews, I love this because there is always a mini-mystery in the background, and it's very comfy. I really love the characters and the setting of an inter-galactic inn.

I also really like a Long way to a small, angry planet by Becky Chambers & following books.

URBAN FANTASY: Mercy Thompson, Harry Dresden, Kate Daniels, Hidden Legacy, The Others etc.

FANTASY I like Robin Hobb & lots of others! I read less of this lately as it's hard finding something a bit more original and less male-dominated i guess?

Harry Potter! I love so many characters, the Weasleys, Harry & Hermione, Neville & Luna! I also really enjoy Narcissa and the Malfoys.

CRIME & MYSTERY! I also like a lot of Crime, but prefer things aren't toooooo violent eg. Tess Gerritson, Jane Harper, Robert Bryndza, Cormoran Strike, and any cozy mysteries! One of the cozy series i like are the Hilary series by Faith Martin

OTHER! Plus of course, general fiction, chick lit, etc. I like Marian keyes, Sarah Addison Allen, Cecelia Ahern, I like happy endings and some of my favourites are The Peach Keeper and The Waverly Sisters. I like witchy books - themes like Practical Magic or Garden Spells

CURRENTLY READING: Deja Dead (Temperance Brennan #1) The Pearl King (Crow Investigations #4)


Teas: - I have a preference for herbal tea/flavored tea/fuits/honey/green tea etc, but i'm happy to try anything.

Some of my favourites:

  • Fruits

  • Raspberry

  • Peppermint

  • Ginger, lemon, honey etc

  • Fennel

  • Cardamon/cinnamon

I don't drink black tea really, and i haven't found a Roiboos that i like yet(I know fussy), but i will try new things anyway :) My partner drinks Earl Grey so that's fine!


Hopefully you won't have to worry too much about dislikes, but:

  • I don't drink coffee, but if you sent it it would go to someone willing who visits.
  • I don't think you can send unpackaged food or nail polish or seeds to my country
  • I'm not crafty. Your craft supplies would be sadly wasted on me :)
  • I can't think of anything else that would probably be relevant!!

and here is the cat tax: Alt text

Thanks for playing in my PLU: Animal PC Swap at Postcard Lovers Unite Group. :)

Teacake on Nov 15, 2013:

Just to let you know there's a reply letter in the post for you :)

Fever on Sep 20, 2013:

Haha, well, it wasn't a "stuffed envie" per se, but the goodies you sent were nice and thoughtful and very unique. I really prefer that to an envie stuffed with things of which I will only use one or two. So don't worry about a thing! I'm currently on holiday in England, so there will be no time for a letter probably, but I'll sit down for an answer when I come back. :)

Thimbled on May 11, 2009:

Hello! I am just letting you know that I send your package off today for the random envie quick swap! I hope you like it! Orjana x x x

poeticpaper on Dec 26, 2008:

I received your Etsy Tag! It's marvelous! I hope we can swap again in the near future. I'd really love a pc from New Zealand. :)

DosLittleMonkeys on Dec 16, 2008:

Glad you liked it! I'll have to leave nice feedback on Etsy! Happy holidays!
