About Me

Hello all! My name is iliana, I'm 28, and I live in Greece. I'm currently working on my Master research thesis in architectural engineering. I'm also working in our family business where we construct charcoal grills and ovens. We also have a YouTube channel, Grill philosophy, full of grilling and cooking recipes!

CURRENT INTERESTS:

  • Journaling

  • Fountain pens (just started exploring!)

  • Literature

  • Exploring the Japanese culture (i.e. through the language, cinema, literature, music, aesthetics, architecture, etc)

  • Dancing

FUN FACT: I have graduated a Music junior high and high School ! But I prefer dancing to the music or song writing as opposed to playing music or singing!

Favorites

Love receiving things that I can use in my journals and snailmail crafts.

(I often like people depicting in things (compared to nuture or animals), but I don't really like real photography in stationery/postcards.)

FAVORITES:

  • rubber stamps

  • stickers and washi tape (both vintage-like and kawaii styles

  • small cards or ephemera from your country.

  • pappery things for packaging, i.e. lightweight papper, gift bags, tags etc.

  • anything Japanese culture/aesthetics related !

  • Anything One Piece..!! (favorite characters: Luffy !!, Law, Boa Hancock)

Postcards

Regarding postcards, I almost always prefer non-touristy ones. I also really like people as a theme compared to nature or animals, if you have to choose. But please don't be too picky since I will appreciate any received item.

Teas

NO....: jasmine, orange, mint/peppermint, cranberry, licorice... :)

YES!!: green/white teas, herbal tea, hibiscus, apple, raspberry

No food allergies. :D

Washies

I like both kawaii and vintage-like aesthetics so please surprise me! :D

Favorite Books

I like reading fiction books occasionally and I gravitate towards Japanese literature lately or various classical literature.

-YES!! : Writing style as opposed to plot!! (I rarely judge a book by the plot synopsis as it is almost always misleading for me! The plot is really something I care less about, generally speaking, if I really like the writer.)

.

Current FAVORITE WRITERS:

  • Yasunari Kawabata

  • Haruki Murakami

  • Leo Tolstoy

  • Milan Kundera

  • Also a huge fan of the Harry Potter book series (and a Ravenclaw). ^.^

--- You can also find my goodreads account linked above!

Favorite Movies

At the moment, I don't watch movies that much. But I want to resume exploring different directors from all around the world.

FAVORITE DIRECTORS so far are:

  • Kenji Mizoguchi

  • Shohei Imamura

  • Yorgos Lanthimos

  • Roman Polanski

  • Krzysztof Kieslowski

FAVORITE DISNEY (and other animated) movies:

  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame

  • Aladdin

  • The Aristocats

  • My neighbor Totoro

  • Hawl's moving castle

  • and Star Wars...? I don't consider them Disney haha

Favorite Music

I appreciate music from various genres and I have been exploring quite a few so far.

Among them are:

  • Classical

  • Rock/Metal

  • Acid Jazz (not regular Jazz, though...!)

  • RnB/HipHop

  • Deep/Tech House/Minimal techno

  • K-pop, Pop

  • Greek folk music

  • Japanese traditional music, etc :)

I am currently in a K-pop phase, though, for about a year now.

FUN FACT: I almost never pay attention to the lyrics at first (even in my native language!) and I usually pick songs to listen to that I can dance to (depending on the genre, though).

Favorite Television

  • One Piece !

  • Death Note

  • Terrace house

  • Stranger things

  • Friends

  • the Big bang theory

  • How I met your mother

  • Brooklyn Nine-Nine

  • Criminal minds

  • the Vampire diaries (has sentimental value....)

Comment: THANK YOU for everything!! I love it all, and it’s so nicely packaged!! I went to the Snoopy Museum in April 2017! Wasn’t it great?! I didn’t see that coaster. It’s two of my favorite things - Snoopy and the moon!!! Can’t thank you enough for such a special swap. I really love it and appreciate it!!! XOXO
Response: Hey, thank you for your nice comment and heart! :D The museum was awesome really!! The coaster wasn't in the museum's gift shop..! It was in a pack of six (different designs) in a supermarket in Tokyo!... Snoopy is really everywhere there! Maybe equally or more common (? haha maybe not) than Hello Kitty, lol..... I'm so happy you enjoyed it! I think I have gifted most of these coasters now haha. Only kept two for me! <3 Also, Happy December! :D
