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

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.

Not sure what to write about? I love talking TV shows, Books & Movies. I play a lot of Animal Crossing. I would love to hear about your pets! Do you have some cool scenery you like to visit?

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; especially deer, bears, and mammals we don't see in NZ (all the mammals basically lol)

  • 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!

TV & Movies

Tv shows:

Marvel, Lucifer, Line of Duty, Nancy Drew, Buffy and Angel, Firefly, The Witcher, Star Trek, Brooklyn 99, the Good Place, Avatar the last airbender, The Mandalorian, Supernatural, 911 Foyles War, Schitt's Creek, Stargate, Legends of Tomorrow, Zoey's extraordinary playlist, Queens Gambit, crime shows such as Vera or the Rookie....so many shows!

I also love food shows.

I also watch a bit of true crime, and find shows such as unsolved mysteries and detective shows, it's a fascinating topic to me


Stardust, Marvel movies, Wonder Woman, Love & Monsters, Fast & Furious movies, Murder on the Orient Express, Knives Out, Practical Magic,

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 & Naomi Novik lots of others! I read less of this lately as i'm picky LOL, but i love anything where it's female-focused, and not tooooo violet.

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


Not sure what to send?

  • Sticker sheets or nice individual. Not child-worthy i don't have anyone to use those for.

  • Stationery supplies; notecards, letter sets, etc

  • Non-Touritsy blank postcards

  • Decorating bits for envelopes

  • Tea (I prefer herbal/chai/green/peppermint and flavours such as fruit, honey and herbs)

  • Fancy envelopes, small envelopes


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
