.. that's me ♥

Hi everyone! This is Dalila, a 25 year old girl from Northern Italy. I'm a Uni student and a full time worker in the field of Tourism. I love travelling, meeting new people, getting to know new cultures.. That's why I've been penpalling since I was 14 :) Some of the best friends I have.. I never met them, LOL. It is absolutely exciting to see my mailbox full with letters and postcards, it makes me feel thought of and special :) I've got a little kitten called Angie, she's my anniversary present from my boyfriend and we're a family!

NOTE: I take my swaps very seriously and I always try my best to send in time. Should an issue occur, I will PM you and let you know promptly. I WILL NOT FLAKE! Also, I rate as soon as I get my swaps, so if you haven't been rated yet, it's just that I haven't received it. Please be kind enough to rate me promptly, too!

Music I love ♥

I've always been into rock. I had my "metal" period, but I guess it's kind of over now. My favorites include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Rolling Stones, Pixies, the Beatles, Alanis Morissette, the Cranberries, Smashing Pumpkins... and many more. I love going to concerts and listening to music while writing letters :)

Obsessed w/ Stationery! ♥

Yes, I am truly obsessed with stationery. I would never stop buying notebooks, pens, paper clips, post-its.. My boyfriend thinks I'm going to end up opening my own store, some day.. :D So of course I am interested in Stationery Swaps, to get something that I would never find in my Country!

Crafting ♥

I've been painting on canvas for 4-5 years now and I like it so much. I also love creating my own stationery, my own envelopes.. and I should start scrapbooking soon! That looks like superfun! :) I recently discovered ATCs and Zentangles and I must say I just love them :)

Collections ♥

I collect:

♥ Postcards - Colorful landscapes - Nature and trees - Funny animals - Lakes/Rivers - Country fields and flowers - Canyons/ Impressive sceneries - Abstract colorful pictures

♥ Fridge magnets: - Colorful 3D magnets - No glitters please - No flat magnets

♥ Stationery: - Colorful lettersets - Washi tape - Envies (neatly homemade is fine!) - Rubber stamps - Gelpens, glitter pens, micron pens, advertising pens.. ANY KIND OF PENS! :)

If your local grocery store or bookstore or whateverstore is giving away some ad pens... I'd love to have them! :D

♥ Jewelry: - Colorful handmade jewelry - Earrings (pierced - no clips!) - Bracelets - Necklaces - Anklets - Pearls - Silver (no Gold please) - No glitters


Readings.. ♥

My all time fave writer is Chuck Palahniuk, I really like his works (especially the early ones). I also enjoy reading Neil Gaiman, Ken Follett and Stephen King. I'm not that into yellow/mistery, though King and Poe are always a good read.

At the movies.. ♥

My favorite director is Stanley Kubrik. I so much love his movies, the less famous ones, too. I'm into sci-fi (but I do hate StarWars) and noir. To list some of my faves: The Matrix, Fight Club, The Fifth Element, the Sixth Sense, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, A Clockwork Orange, Lords of Dogtown.. I also like the New Hollywood movies ('60s-70's) and Hollywood Classics ('40s)..

♥ ♥ Wishlist ♥ ♥

♥ Stationery (pens, gelpens, notepads, sheets, envelopes, stickers.. if it's stationery, I will surely like it!) Also, I am unable to find DECO or WASHI TAPE in any of the shops in my area.. i would LOVE to receive Washi tape!!! ♥

♥ Bath&Body stuff (Lotions, samples, conditioners, body wash, bath salts..)

♥ Make-up stuff (eye shadows, blush, mascara, pencils, eyeliners..)

♥ Stuffed Animals

♥ Teas (anything but cinnamon or honey!! - I especially love Black and Roiboos tea)

♥ Lingerie (size S)

♥ jewelry (Bracelets, Earrings, Anklets, Necklaces..)

♥ Earrings



There aren't many things that I do not like, but if I had to write a list, it would surely include: - Honey - Cinnamon - Overly girly stuff (pink feathers, glitters etc.. - except for gelpens! Glitter gelpens are very welcome) - Typed Letters (!) - Fantasy movies & books (i.e. LotR..) - Twilight (I'm fed up of it!) - Dance / Commercial Music (I find it very impersonal - except done for the Disco Music '80s-90's) - Religious stuff (I respect your religion, but it's not mine)
