That's me

I'm a 26-year old girl studying art history, archeology and german medieval language & literature in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It's beautiful were I live but I really love to travel and see as much of this amazing world as I can, so I was backpacking for 9 months around the world and met heaps of nice and interesting people. I still live with my parents because if I'd be able to afforde my own place here, than I woudnt be able to study as much as I need to. But my parents are actually quite happy that I'm still at home (I'm an only child, but NOT spoiled!). We do have a cat called Fanny (by my Mum) or Miezi (by me and my Dad), but she isnt allowed into my room. So, if you are very sensitiv (is that the right word for it?) to cat hair, send me a PM and I will not bring the item I buy/make for you home, but will package it at my gradma's house (thats totally animal free).

My Dad makes Hurdy Gurdies and so I just recently started to play. I love the sound and I can listen to my Dad playing for hours. Same goes for Dan Moi (it's a vietnamese jaw's harp). You can have lots of fun with it and it always makes a great sound. In the summer (winter is too cold outside) I love to do stencils and some street art. It's great when you visit an other city and there is GOOD (not those random names all over, but the meaningful kind) streetart on the walls (I always take pictures). I did a pretty big stencil of Billie Holiday on canvas for a friend and he is in love with it.

Random facts about me: I'm an Apple/Mac buff. I love to write lists. I love love love NZ (lived there for about 10 months) I'm a vegetarian and I love to bake and to cook.

I'd love to receive a privat note in a swap, because I'll do the same :)

IMPORTANT: where I live the postman has to bring the mail to the next town for it to be postmarked. So please excuse it if the mail has a postmark of the following day. AND I do live in Germany - it can take quite a while for mail to arrive (at the moment I'm awaiting a letter from the US an it is on it's way for about 4 weeks now!!). But I will always send my items! Oh, yeah, I do reuse packaging - for nature's sake and for the sake of my wallet... Please don't feel offendet by that (I'm not gonna send dirty packaging!). And if you dont like that, please message me BEFORE I send out your swap, than I will buy a new box from the store :) No worries!

I'm up for privat swaps if you want anything from Germany or Bavaria.

Favourites

COLOUR I like rainbow :) That pretty much means any colour as long as it has no grayish tinge. For make up (eyes and nails), everything goes (except for light blues maybe).

MAKE UP AND BATH I love eyeshadows (or pigment samples by MAC, Inglot shadows free system,or other brands that I can't get here), blush and nail polish (OPI, Essie, China Glaze, ciate), good handcreams and so on. I prefer that you send me less stuff but of higher quality than five things from the dollar store! And I really like to get my hands on the primer "the present" by philosophy :) I like bodyscrubs, but I'm not that big on bathfizzies and bubblebaths. Love anything with a lemon or citrus scent!

TV I'm really into productions like The Big Bang Theory, How I met your Mother, Dexter, Weeds, True Blood, Outsourced, Bones and 30 Rock. Sometimes I like to watch old ones that were on TV when I grew up (it was a rerun!!!) like Bonanza, A-Team, Knight Rider or I Dream of Jeannie :)

MUSIC I'm obsessed with The John Butler Trio. My favourite of all times. But I'm into other stuff as well like Minuit, Fanfare Ciocarlia, Adele, Liz Wright, Bic Runga, LaBrassBanda, Tom Waits,...

BOOKS I love a good book. But to be honest, I'm only READING books for university, all other books I love I do listen too. That makes me an audiobook adict! At the moment I'm really into Mankell's Wallander (swedish detective stories) and I love Walter Moers. I like crime, comedy and fairy tales, but sometimes I do enjoy an old classic.

MOVIES Trainspotting, Hallam Foe, Boondock Saints I + II, Inglorious Basterds, Shawshank Redemption, Hot Fuzz, Dogville, Science of Sleep, Silentium, Themroc, V for Vendetta, Whale Rider, all X-Men, all Bourne, all Oceans, LotR, Black Swan and many many many more.

CRAFTS Embroidery, making rubber stamps, polymer clay, stencils, needle felting, upcycled magazine bowls, drypoint,... At the moment I just don't have time for amy crafts...it's a shame :(

THEMES Vintage circus, feathers, bugs, pin up & marine look, hot air balloons, sugarskulls, mushrooms, rainbows, Loteria, polka dots, raindrops, clouds, monsters, owls, hummingbirds, Onigiri, All Blacks (NZ Rugby), Yerba Mate, Ghibli, Macarons, woodland, little twin stars, strawberries and cherries, the Mumins, ...

TEA Pretty much everything, especially Yerba Mate (but no tea bags, just loose tea, my everyday one is Taragui BCP) and herbal teas related. Teabags are very handy and I really like them a lot (just no yerba here please!) I'm not so much into fruity flavoured ones though, but if you do like one a lot, I'm always love to try :) I do use an old tv table as my tea station in my room with my electric kettle and al my teas and cups on it... so pretty :) Oh yeah, if someone can get his hand on some Revolution Sweet Ginger Peach Tea I'd be a really happy girl! BTW I have just too much Green Tea at my house right now... so please NO Green Tea (I don't like to drink it in the WInter, for me, It's a summer tea)

FASHION At the moment it's manly marine look in navy, red and white. Handbags are always good.

ARTISTS Mucha, Giotto, Max Ernst, Horst Janssen, Franz Marc, Friedrich Hirsch...

Likes

I read in the forum that some members don't like it if someone has a long "wishlist", others on the otherhand do appreciate a list... I'm a little comfused... So please don't take this as an "I WANT" list, it's just a hint about what I like :) and what my (material) world revolves around...

::: Washi tape or deco tape ::: ribbons ::: International candy - I'm in love with Cadbury Eggs (ohh, Caramello), TimTams, Crunchie and Poptarts (I can't get any of them here) and POCKY. For chocolate: most Cadbury bars (those mint crisps are wonderful and caramell is the best anyway), just not the nuts & rainsin (together in a bar I mean) and creme fruit fillings type. I like basically every well made chocolate (dark, milk, white). Green Tea cholocate is great too. My best friend just tryed Rowntrees Sour Pastilles and she got hooked! ::: pretty chopsticks ::: Bento boxes and Bento items ::: pretty reusable shopping bags / tote bags ::: stuff from Accessorize ::: scarves ::: Ink pads ::: TEA ::: Samples ::: Yankee Candle Tarts ::: a strong laserpionter ::: Zines (love Mini Zines) ::: Shrinking foil ::: big colourful rings (plastic is good) ::: earrings ::: Vintage glasses !! ::: Wine Corks (the real thing made our of cork AND used please :)) ::: Recipes ::: Blank recipe cards ::: Handmade stuff ::: Rubber stamps (handmade are great) ::: Mail art ::: Nice Bombilla made out of Alpaca and everything yerba mate themed ::: Art print postcards (from a museum shop) ::: Old Bay Seasoning (can't get it here...) ::: Realistic looking big fake flowers (best are the one with a hairclip or a a safety pin on the back) ::: I'd like to build up a collection of buttons (with safety pin on the back) that say "I ♥ ..." of all the major cities I've been to. For North America I've only been to NYC, for all other countries (and your city), just ask, if I've been there :)

Please don't send

::: I guess I can leave out the part, where it says: no crappy stuff please! Just things you'd like to get yourself...?! ::: Religous items (I wont feel offended but I just cant relate much, so better spare those things for a person who does appreciate them more than i do) ::: Jewelry with too much "bling" on it ::: Clowns (they scare me) ::: anything with the scent of lavender or roses (I love them fresh cut though)

Comment: Incredible! I love the real spruce tree and candles! This Christmas was our first one as a married couple and I've never had a real tree before. So we cut down a spruce on my husband's late grandmother's farm. It was wonderful :)

DO NOT SWAP WITH THIS PERSON! THEY PROMISE TO MAIL YOU SOMETHING AND THEY DON'T. PLUS, THEY DON'T GET BACK TO YOUR MESSAGES EVEN THOUGH YOU CAN SEE THEY HAVE SIGNED IN SEVERAL TIMES SINCE YOU SENT THEM A PM.

lilrawker on Jun 13, 2013:

Please reply to my PM's. You still owe me a Beauty Box swap!
