i love sending random postcards to random people. learning about different cultures at the same time.
Basically what i'm into are:
Candy - like fruit flavoured candies, toffee, chewy sweets, caramel candies, chocolate mints and whatever you can think of! (just no alcohol in them please. i don't like Reese's peanut butter cups (too sweet!) and I prefer any other chocolate over white chocolate. I love Starbucks dark chocolate, but not those mocha flavoured ones! I tried them and it was yucky. Goetze Caramel Creams too :X
If you want to be specific, I would love to receive a chocolate/candy bar called LOOK! or chocolate candy from Europe called Daim. I've tried those from swaps and they are to die for. =D and oohh! LEMON HEADS AND BIT-O-HONEY ARE GOOD STUFF! I also look forward to trying Slo Poke, RainBlo, SweeTARTS, etc
Stationery - letter writing sets, nice metallic ink pens, nice paper stuff, funky notebooks, the works. oh and postcards are best. unwritten postcards are okay but if they're to be unwritten, i prefer non-state/country postcards ad-free too please.
I adore Disney Princesses like Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Ariel from Little Mermaid, etc. :)
Lip balms: Ever since the swap I did with Farstarr, i'm now into collecting funky and quirky flavoured lipbalms. We don't have them here in Singapore. Flavours like chocolate mint ice-cream, jelly doughnut, oatmeal raisin cookie, pink lemonade, those are cool stuff. Snapple or ben&jerry's lipbalms are cool too. or mnm flavoured lipsmackers. wish i could have them.
Stamps - this is probably the easiest and cheapest thing to give me in a swap. as long as you come from another country, i'd love to receive stamps. used ones, new ones, whatever. since i don't travel much, receiving these stamps are wonderful.
I'm 21 this year, and my favourite colors are black, navy blue, baby pink, royal purple, turqoise. metallic shades of silver, purple, and gold are great too!
i kinda like glittery stickers as well. =D I love things with butterflies and pretty flowers on them. Like a cute notebook with butterflies. But I prefer graphical butterflies. Not the photos of the real ones. I also like spiral bound notebooks with floral prints on them. they're really pretty. Paperchase items are also great! They have fantastic notebooks.
I love admiring photography so I do appreciate photographs that you might send.
I hate green tea and herbal teas. Anything green tea, and I don't drink coffee and milk, although I do eat coffee-flavoured sweets and milk chocolate is ok with me. And I would love to receive fruit-flavoured teas and those instant hot chocolate drinks as well. :D
From RnB to ska to pop to metal to hiphop to rock and roll to disco to reggae to techno.. you name it. Mainly i listen to pop, rnb, mainstream rock, hiphop. (whatever that's on the radio) I listen to almost anything, except gospel. No particular favourite. (:
Horror, comedy and romance movies are great to me. Or stuff like Harry Potter is great.
But some humour movies are overdone, like Date Movie for example. Too corny for my liking. I'm not a fan of sci-fi movies. At all.
The Tyra Show. And Oprah. I love these kind of shows. Heroes is good too.
Gossip Girl, The Secret Life of An American Teenager, etc.
I don't really fancy making crafts, but I love to see the creation of others especially in jewellery or greeting cards/postcards. I think it takes great talent.
Apart from chick lit, I love reading stories that deal with grief. Like PS, I Love You by Cecelia Ahern, Johnny Angel by Danielle Steel, Good Grief by Lolly Winston.
Apart from those, I love reading stories with twists like Da Vinci Code. that was really good.
But I also absolutely love reading series like Gossip Girl (can't help it.) and Harry Potter.
I don't make ATCs or any other sort of crafts (i bake from time to time only) so whatever ribbons and other crafty items like bits and pieces of random paper for scrapbooking are the things i don't look forward to receiving. although i don't mind receiving a handmade scrapbook from you. i just don't need the embellishments, ribbons, buttons, scraps, and whatnot.
Last but not least, I hate clowns. Specially those evil-looking ones.
Twix, Snickers, Mars, Maltesers, Chupa Chups, Hershey's Cookies and Cream/Almond (just the basic flavours), MnMs, Smarties, KitKat, Skittles, Gobstoppers, Cadbury (but just the normal range, I'd like to try those like Cadbury with Brownie filling), Mentos, Milo
