About Me

Note 13/Jun/20 - I was a member of Swap-Bot for a little while about 10 years ago, under lizontheside. I have contacted admin about merging accounts since this is not allowed and I hadn't given much thought to my old account until now (and I've already started swaps here, so too late to delete).

Postage from Australia - Mail from Australia to most other countries can take around a month at the moment on average. Sometimes it can be as quick as 2 weeks or as long as 2-3 months. Please message me before rating down if you haven't received after a few weeks. I try to remember to take pictures of all my mail before I send it off so I'll gladly send you a picture of yours as proof of postage. And of course will also resend if it doesn't get to you after the expected timeframe! You can see Australia Post's Coronavirus International Updates page here for more info on delivery times.

I'm a 30 y/o living in Sydney, Australia.

I got back into swapping and penpalling this year after about a 10 year hiatus. I'm interested in finding new penpals in countries that I'd really like to visit some day. People who have similar interests (see below) and especially vegans would be awesome. Particularly interested in finding penpals in Scandinavian countries, Netherlands, Germany, Iceland, Belgium, and also Asia, Africa... Open to penpals from anywhere really if we click though :) So send me a message if you're interested!

Looking for swappers of nice & neat or HQ FBs and I'm always happy to accept excess! (Not lower quality.) I'm also looking for swappers of neat slams. Feel free to send me a message :)

Vegan, intersectional feminist, Aboriginal, atheist, eco conscious, decidedly childfree.

Currently studying Australian Sign Language (Auslan) 2 nights a week after work, and have studied Japanese on and off for many years (though my level is quite basic right now). If there are any D/deaf people on here I'd love to talk!

Mildly alternatively fashioned, but I also like cute stuff. My most worn clothing brands are Princess Highway and Dangerfield, to give you an idea. I've had the bottom half of my hair dyed variations of blue/green (in balayage) for 2 years. Just switched to purple shades!

I can be a bit shy sometimes but I can also be very silly and a big dork (I'm an extrovert) :)


Musical theatre - faves are Hamilton, Wicked, The Book of Mormon, Dear Evan Hansen, Waitress, Fangirls (recent Aussie musical), Muriel's Wedding (another Aussie one), Something Rotten, Rent, Heathers, Newsies, Aladdin...

Harry Potter - I'm a Hufflepuff. Although, JK Rowling's recent awful transphobic comments have impacted my love for HP, so I'm conflicted :(

Disney - faves are The Lion King, Aladdin, Frozen, Moana, Beauty and the Beast

Travelling - I've visited the US (4x), Malaysia (3x - my sister used to live there), Singapore, England, France, Vietnam, Japan. I really want to go to Germany and the Netherlands next!

Kawaii stationery and stickers

Animals - faves are cats and squirrels

Casual Star Wars fan - particularly Episode VII onwards

Japan - I studied Japanese for 5 years throughout high school, and have done 2 lots of 6-month weekend courses over the years, but been a while so I've forgotten a lot :( but did get to practice when I finally visited Japan in 2019!

Books (see faves below)

Comedy (especially improv - there is an improvised storytelling duo called The Bear Pack in Sydney who I go to see a LOT)


Yoga - just got into it late 2019. I'm a bit lazy with doing it often but I feel good about myself when I do!

House plants

Vegan lollies and just vegan food in general

Wishlist/Other Likes

Tiny coloured or patterned brads/paper studs

Thin border stickers

Flat embellishments

Washi - love any but particularly looking for kawaii or Disney at the moment

Patterned plastic clear contact

Stickers - particularly kawaii, scrapbooking/decorative (not planner) style, or any!

Medium size memo sheets (any style)

Die cuts

Disney stationery or stickers

Kawaii lettersets or large memo sheets

Excess N&N or HQ FBs or neat slams :)

I like most aesthetics... particularly pastels, rose gold, floral, cute, pretty, earthy tones, scrapbooking/journal styles, bright colours

I love animals - my favourites are squirrels, cats, lions, dogs, foxes, rabbits, Australian birds and mammals


Racism, cultural appropriation, transphobia, homophobia, ableism, right wing politics, guns, hunting, etc etc...

I'm not so into postcards or ATCs. Although I would be happy to receive blank Disney, kawaii etc postcards, I would probably just repurpose them for crafts though!

I don't care much for used (or unused) stamps.

I think due to strict quarantine (unrelated to Covid!) it's difficult for tea or wood products to be accepted from overseas into Australia.

Please do not send me anything non-vegan (food but also anything containing non-vegan material such as felt or wool, non-vegan beauty products, or anything that overly promotes animal use etc).

Please don't send me anything overly religious.

I like most Disney things but I'm not so into Disney Channel or Disney Jr shows/movies or Winnie the Pooh (well, it's fine, I just don't love it like I do other Disney things).

As far as musicals go, I'm not overly into Phantom, Miss Saigon or really most Rogers & Hammerstein shows other than The Sound of Music.

Favorite Music

John Mayer first and foremost.

Most of my other favourites are less well-known: Theo Katzman, David Ryan Harris, Freelance Whales, Watsky, Ben Rector, Vulfpeck, A Great Big World.

Also a large chunk of the music I listen to is from musicals - more so modern ones like Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, Waitress, etc.

I also listen to a bit of wizard rock - Harry and the Potters, Lauren Fairweather, etc.

Favorite Books

Authors: JK Rowling/Robert Galbraith, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, Hank Green.

Books: The Book Thief, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Hate U Give

Favorite Television

Doctor Who (I've only seen 9th Doctor onwards), Stranger Things, The Office (US), Arrested Development, The Good Place, Queer Eye, Sex Education, Never Have I Ever, various ABC (Australia) TV shows - I work for them :)

Thanks so much for sharing a bit of Wayward Son with me and for the extra goodies too! :) :) I'm not familiar with either the author or the books but that's one reason I really like this swap because it might offer a chance to try something new!
