About Me

divider1

Hey there! I'm Camila, from beautiful Santiago, Chile. I'm a freelance translator and simultaneous interpreter, I only work as a simultaneous interpreter, because it's my passion and I'm happy to work doing something I love. I don't enjoy translating as much as I enjoy the excitement of a new interpreting job, so I rarely do it. I'm also a blogger and a shopaholic, I blog about shopping, beauty, parties, DIY and pretty much anything I'm interested in. Oh and I have been studying French since like forever, oh là là!

I'm a crazy cat lady, I have three beautiful cats: Chofi (the mom, a caliby), and her children Kate & William (black / orange and white). They are the best thing ever.

I'm very curious about pretty much everything. I love fun facts and love learning, this is one of the reasons I love my job so much, because I get to meet some great people from different countries and cultures, and it's the same reason I love Swap-bot, I've met some wonderful people here and look forward to meet some more lovely swappers. If I'm your swap partner, just know I'd love for you to tell me about you and the place you live. I'm always happy to meet new people, making new friends and have private swaps.

I'm super organized and I always send my swaps on time. If there's ever a problem with the deadline, I'll let you know and I'd appreciate if you did the same.

I also rate as soon as I receive my swaps and contact swap partners before rating them down. I understand mail can be slow sometimes and things might get lost in the mail.

Important note: Mail to and from Chile can take several weeks. I sometimes receive my mail after 2-3 weeks, but 8 weeks is also normal, so I always wait at least two months before considering anything as lost. And even though the Chilean postal system is not the fastest or the most reliable, my incoming mail is very reliable (lucky me!). I use registered mail for my outgoing mail, so if you're waiting for one of my swaps, just contact me and I can share the tracking number with you. I have an app on my phone called TrackChecker and I get daily updates with the status of my outgoing mail, that way I make sure everything arrives safely, but if for some reason it doesn't, I'm always happy to resend :)

One of my favorite things about swapping, is that I get to be more creative, I always have the best time putting swaps together, creating something fun that my partners will hopefully like, shopping for something nice and upcycling envelopes from shopping bags, magazines and anything I can think of. I'm always happy to receive upcycled envelopes or knowing one of my partners reused one of my envies.

I have more hobbies than I can think of and I believe a lifetime won't be enough for me to do all the things I want to do, the places I want to visit, the tv shows I want to watch and the things I want to learn. But I do my best and I always keep myself busy.

Likes & Dislikes

divider 3

First thing you should know about me: I'm very easy to please. If you were kind enough to make or pick something nice for me, I'm sure I'll love it.

  • Huge fan of beauty products, makeup and glitter I LOVE glitter SO much! I only use certified cruelty free products, I don't support brands that perform animal testing and it's very simple to find cruelty free options, here's PETA's list of brands that don't do animal testing and here's the list of brands that do test on animals. Some of my favorite (affordable) brands are Wet n' Wild, NYX, Essence, Catrice, Physicians Formula, E.L.F., Burt's Bees, EcoTools, Bath & Body Works, The Body Shop, DM, Balea. I also love Too Faced, Urban Decay, Jeffrey Star, Kat Von D, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Milani, Tarte. Favorite products: Eyeshadows, eyeliners, highlighters, primers, colored mascara, brushes, blush. I love every single color, gold, silver, black, pink, purple, etc. (I have fair skin, blond hair and green eyes btw). Dislikes: Animal tested products, foundations, primers, anything that needs to be matched with the skin tone (because it's best if I pick them myself).

  • Tea: I love tea, especially black, flavored and unflavored. My favorite is chai and chai latte. And I am currently obsessed with green tea, flavored and unflavored. I also love fruity and sweet teas. I have too much herbal tea for the moment but if you'd still like to send some, I wouldn't mind. All other tea colors and a varieties are always welcome! Dislikes: Earl Grey, hibiscus and rosehip (any tea that will turn red).

  • Coffee: I don't like coffee but my parents love it, so if you have any coffee sachets you'd like to share, I'll be more than happy to receive them.

  • Chocolate: Milk, dark, marzipan, mint, caramel, nuts, I like it all! Dislikes: Raisins and dry fruits in general.

  • Candy: I'd love to try some candy from your country. I'm happy with everything! Except for things with gelatin like gummy bears and marshmallows, unless they are a vegetarian/vegan version.

  • DIY: I love DIY projects and love handmade things, so feel free to send me anything made by you. I also love craft supplies, I'm into many things: Mail art, smash journaling, watercolor, scrapbooking, I love working with paints and paper!

  • Postcards: I love all postcards! Touristy, commercial, non touristy, animals, funny, weird, offensive, love them all!! And specially love when they're written! If you ever join a swap where the requirements say the postcard should be unwritten, please feel free to write on it (if you want to of course). I like them so much better that way and of course I won't rate you down for doing so :D

  • Party Planning: I LOVE party planning. I'm always thinking about the next upcoming event and love the fact that my family jumps on board right away. I'm great with decorating, my mom is an awesome cook and my sister loves to help her. And my brother and dad love to eat so.....we make an pretty good team. I'm always happy to receive cute paper napkins, paper straws, place cards, balloons, party invites, gift bags (for party favors), party decor, you get the idea. All items and themes are welcomed, Halloween, Christmas, Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall, Classic, Vintage, Tea Party, Picnic....anything really!

  • Favorite themes: Cats, animals, galaxy, unicorns, geometric shapes, glitter, girly, Alice in Wonderland, tea party, little red riding hood, fairy tales, shabby chic, vintage, Christmas, Halloween, pretty much every holiday.

  • Favorite colors: Pink!! Gold, turquoise, white, green, blue....pretty much every color and anything that glitters.

  • I'm a vegetarian, so please no meat, no animal cruelty. No feathers, leather, etc.

  • I'm not a religious person, but I love learning about different religions and cultures. I don't mind receiving religious items, as long as they're sent respectfully. I really like Buddhism, not so much as a religion but as a philosophy and I'm always happy to receive Buddhist items.

  • I recently bought a recipe book and I intend to fill it up with colorful recipe cards and paper goodies (like a junk journal), so I'd be happy to get some recipe cards from you, blank or written (veggie only please) and please add your Swap-bot username or IG username on your card, I'd love to remember my recipe book contributors. Any food themed stickers, scraps, cut outs, paper goodies, stamps, etc....anything you think I could use, please send it my way, thank you!

  • I don't mind receiving opened/used items, as long as they're not rubbish of course. So any cling on stamps, stamp pads, opened/incomplete packs with paper goodies/stickers.....reused/recycled/upcycled envelopes, yes please! I love getting eco friendly goodies in the mail.

Makeup and beauty products. Things for my smash journal or planner. Stationery, lettersets, rubber stamps, inks, washi tape, papers, post its, office supplies, words and phrases in your language (I love slang), souvenirs and unique items from your country, beauty or decor magazines, vegetarian recipes, healthy cat wet food/snacks, cat toys...etc.

As a vegetarian, I don't eat regular gummy bears or anything with gelatin, but I absolutely LOVE vegetarian gummies. I can't find many in Chile and the only ones I've tried are Katjes, they are awesome, and I'd love to try other brands as well. If you have them in your country and would like to send me some, I'll be really happy. Dandies (vegan marshmallows) are always welcomed as well.

Spices: I'm not so much into cooking, but I am into eating hehe. My mom loves it and gets super excited when I join spice swaps and we get all kinds of spices from different countries. If you'd like to send her some spices instead of something for me, that would make us both really happy. She loves to cook with new spices and I love to try new dishes, you see? Win win for everybody.

I'm a huge fan of Cosmo magazine. I have an iPad subscription to Cosmo Chile, U.S. and France (to practice my basic/intermediate French skills). If you want to send me a copy of your local Cosmo magazine, I'd be delighted! Even if I don't understand a word, it would be awesome. Oh and Flow magazine is another favorite. Well, any beauty, decor or travel magazine will make me happy.

Letter stickers, they're never enough! Bush pens, markers, anything I can use for calligraphy and lettering.

Postage stamps, my mom has a huge collection and I've started to contribute with some stamps as well. I also like to save the really cute ones for my smash journal.

These are only some ideas and may help you get more inspired, hopefully. But honestly, feel free to send anything you think I could like. Or check my Pinterest and/or my Instagram if it helps.

Collections

divider 7

I collect anything Alice in Wonderland related, paper goodies, postcards, even books with different illustrations. I love to collect things related to Tea Parties, or anything that can be useful for any party, I like to entertain. I also love The Wizard of Oz and anything with cats, whenever I see something with a cat, I just have to get it!

If you ever send postcards related to any of my collections, again, feel free to write on them!!

And I also collect magnets from different countries, touristic and unique/cute ones as well. I have tons of them now and most thanks to all the wonderful swappers who've contributed to my collection. So I'd be super excited if you'd like to send me one from the place you live. That would mean the world to me.

divider 8

Books, Movies & Music

divider 9

I remember being a kid and hating books, I never liked the ones they gave me at school, until I was about 12 years old and discovered Harry Potter in my living room. I loved it! I'm still not a huge fan of books, but I do like to read anything Harry Potter related or cats related. I prefer magazines though.

I'm always reading beauty, decor and travel magazines. I also love reading articles and fun facts.

I love comedy, action, fantasy and Christmas movies. I HATE horror movies.

My favorite movies are Alice in Wonderland (every version of it), The Wizard of Oz, Wedding Crashers, Love Actually, Just Friends, Ernest & Celestine, Julie & Julia, Superbad, Ironman, The Avengers, among SO many others!

Favorite tv shows: Downton Abbey, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Friends, True Blood, Gossip Girl, Desperate Housewives, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, How to Get Away with Murder.

I love pop, rap and electronic music. My favorite artists are Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Rihanna, Eminem, Lady Gaga, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Justin Timberlake, The Black Eyed Peas, Clean Bandit, Tiësto, Martin Garrix, David Gueta, Flo Rida etc....I love music and with the right beat I can party all night long.

Comment: Wowwww Camila, what a beautiful parcel!! I don't mind that it's not handmade as that's not what we discussed for this swap - I just had some inspiration myself ;p But I'm so happy with everything you've sent me, you paid such close attention to my likes!! Loooooove the die-cuts, both the stickers and those rosegold normal die-cuts in the bag... They are SO pretty! And the planner stickers, can't wait to use them! Of course the sequins also, I think I loved everything you picked out for me! I feel super lucky :D <3 If you ever want to swap again, just say the word! Thank you again!

Comment: Thank you for the Atacama postcard! I love your answers. I’ve heard of the book you’re reading and I’ll look up the health challenge app! I wish I could embrace winter but I don’t even like fall, ha ha ha! I do make the most of my days regardless of the season though. I’m happy you do the same!! I’d only be happy 5 months of the year if it depended on temperature/weather! Really fun swap, thanks for hosting it! : ) xoxo
Response: Yaaaasss, our dessert is so pretty! OMG I had to take up another book to read because that one I couldn't read at night (it's not scary but makes me feel very anguished and that's not a happy feeling before bed) and I was getting behind on my reading challenge, so I started another one because night time is usually when I read the most hehe and I've still been reading both! Oh I do love fall, I've been in such a fall mood even though it's a long way to go for me lol. Thanks for the rating and the heart!

Comment: Edited: seré bruta?? Si venía té de damasco!!! Gracias!!! 😍 Este fue un swap adorable, lo disfruté muchísimo, sobre todo porque fuiste mi 'sender'!!! No tengo tu super poder, ya quisiera caer muerta donde sea y a la hora que sea (nótese, no con quien sea jajajaja) pero es imposible. Mil gracias por compartir tantas cosas, tengo que revisar ese sitio de stamps que mencionas y por supuesto que estoy feliz con el té de cardamomo (si tienes de damasco (sealed) me envias uno cuando puedas, quedé antojada)!! Nosotros también hacemos muchas veces 'once' en vez de cena y a cada rato, se nos 'junta' porque nos brincamos el café de la tarde lol! Siempre se pone pan o 'tortillas calientes' y cuanto 'menjurgue' haya en la alacena para untar! Por cierto, suena deliciosa la mermelada de frambuesa! Ah, y acicalar, es de uso diario en nuestra casa (pero tampoco es común por estos lares) :-) Un abrazo, de verdad, feliz con tu envie y con esta idea!!! Espero que se repita! ♥♥
Response: Hahaha, no te había respondido antes porque quería verificar la foto del envío porque quedé con la duda de si había incluido té de damasco o no y luego vi tu update y me dio mucha risa haha. Espero que hayas disfrutado ese tecito y los demás y qué rico que te haya gustado este swap, yo me entretuve mucho armándolo. Y bueno, ya que estamos compartiendo hábitos de sueño, yo como que también podría dormirme inmediatamente con quien sea, siempre que sea de mi gusto hahaha. Cuando viajo al sur a la casa de mi abuela es así, se parte con el tecito y luego se termina con la once y básicamente después de almuerzo no te vuelves a parar de la mesa haha, es muy divertido. Y sí, se tiene que repetir este swap, ya pronto lo vuelvo a organizar :) Cariños y gracias por la nota y el corazón, como siempre es un placer swappear contigo.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely tour around your neighbourhood! Your kitties are so cute! And you have a hyggekrog, awesome! I loved seeing all the pictures from a place far from me, it sure is beautiful where you live. Thank you for sharing with me!
Response: Thanks for the lovely comment! Yes, the kitties are adorable, right? And they love hanging out in my room and the cozy corner I created thinking we could share, but of course they don't always let me get in there haha. Chile is such a beautiful country, and I sure love the place where I live, so I was glad to show you around, glad you liked it! Thanks for the rating, the heart and the lovely comments :)
