About Me

Hi there! I'm Kayla, 26, from the U.S. I work in a theatre in New York City and am pretty passionate about the importance of the arts. I have a dog who I adore more than almost anything. I'm a Pisces.

I absolutely love Disney (movies, music and the parks!), Harry Potter, Christmas, the Peanuts (Snoopy, etc) and animals (especially dogs). In terms of Disney, my fave characters are: Minnie, Aurora, Ursula and Maleficent. Favorite park attractions are: Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, People Mover and Peter Pan's Flight... though Epcot is my fave park. I'm a Hufflepuff.

I'm pagan (Celtic based, though pretty eclectic) and very connected to nature - specifically the sea, woods and crystals. I'm trying really hard to have a green thumb, but so far it hasn't worked out for me. But I do enjoy working with herbs and oils, as well as in the kitchen. I dabble in tarot and have several decks, though am most connected with my goddess deck that I've had since I was 12.

I'm also a knitter and have started to get more into paper crafts and am just starting to try my hand at jewelry making.

Making and giving gifts to people is one of my absolute favorite things. I love shopping - specifically at small businesses and antique/ vintage stores. They always have the most unique finds!

My favorite colors are purple, blue (more ocean tones than royal blue), sage, gray and soft pinks.

I'm vegetarian. :)

I would prefer swap-bot personal messages over emails.

Favorite Music

My favorite artists are Ingrid Michaelson, Brandi Carlile, Miranda Lambert, Green River Ordinance, Motion City Soundtrack, Zac Brown Band and pretty much anything Andrew McMahon (Something Corporate, Jack's Mannequin, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness).

In terms of genre, I enjoy classic rock, pop punk/ pop rock, country, indie and folk.

I also love musicals. My favorites are Passing Strange, Les Miserables, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Once on this Island.

This isn't really music, but I've gotten into podcasts the past couple of years. My favorites are Harry Potter & the Sacred Text, Undisclosed, Serial and The Black Tapes Project (when I'm brave enough to listen to it!)

Favorite Television

I'm definitely more of a TV person than a movie person.

My favorites are: Veronica Mars, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, the Chicago series (Fire, PD, Med), One Tree Hill, Jane the Virgin, Grey's Anatomy, Freaks & Geeks, Pit Bulls & Parolees and Supernatural.

I also love HGTV shows, specifically Fixer Upper, Property Brothers and Rehab Addict.

There are several more shows that I regularly watch, but those are definitely the tops!

Favorite Movies

I'm not a big movie buff, but I do have my stand-bys.

My #1 by far is The Princess Bride.

My go-to sick movie (you know... the one you watch when you're sick and you need to be comforted) is The Sound of Music. I adore Julie Andrews.

Favorite Books

Favorites: Harry Potter series, Jodi Picoult (favorites were Nineteen Minutes and Leaving Time), Gillian Flynn (fave was Dark Places) and Rainbow Rowell (faves were Attachments, Fangirl and Eleanor & Park).

Growing up, my favorite books were Madeline, The Secret Garden and The Two Princesses of Bamarre.

Likes/ Dislikes

My style is vintage, shabby chic, nautical, eclectic.

Things I generally love: Crystals, shells & sea glass, divination tools (I am typically drawn to and work best with tools that have a water, spirit or feminine based energy.) Disney related things, Harry Potter related things, Princess Bride related things, tea (I prefer herbal teas, but am pretty open to most types), vegetarian cookbooks, home decorating or DIY books, fun/ colorful pens, quirky buttons and home hardware (ex: really cool door knockers), witch balls, Christmas/Yule decorations, embroidery, candles, lunar/ moon related things, pretty yarn, nail polish, fairy doors/ garden/ house items, lace, cute stud earrings, flowers, nicely-crafted homemade items, chocolate, popcorn, toffee, mints, dogs.

For recipe swaps, I prefer the recipes to be 4x6 whenever possible, as that is the size that fits in my recipe box. :)

I tend to prefer floral, oceanic and citrus scents. Though I also love spicy/ holiday ones.

Some of my totem animals are a gazelle, stag, lioness, dolphin and kangaroo.

Not interested in: animal fur (real or faux), religious items, horror related things, coffee.

glad you liked the sea glass! That vender was so smart to find a way to use the smaller pieces.

I agree that the stone is not rose quartz and what I do know is that this is an era where we need more love...so pink or green for the heart chakra

I am so glad you liked those stones. It seems like I am always finding something on the beaches that are not found in stores and hold lovely energy. As I said, I am really glad you like them

Hello Kayla, welcome to swap-bot, haha. I'm your partner in the Book I'm reading right now swap!

I'm reading Please Don't Tell My Parents I'm a Supervillain.

This book is about a girl whose parents are superheroes. And she wants her powers ASAP. She eventually gets them and she accidently becomes a supervillain! 😁 I like it, because it's steampunk and I'm into that stuff. And it's easy to read.

Here are some extracts, not connected:

Have a great day,

Pavlína 🌞
