About Me

Hello! My name is Karen and I'm 26 years young. I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm a university student majoring in Criminal Justice. I love receiving pretty stuff in the mail. I'm currently obsessed with; snail-mailing, skincare and makeup! My favorite color is yellow. I normally don't like bright colors but somehow I find yellow a very positive and cheerful color. I'm not the most bubbly person but I do believe by wearing something bright, will help brighten your day. I also enjoy the smell of the rain and the beauty of nature. Winter is my favorite season, I get to burn my favorite candles and cozy up with cute warm sweaters.

I Have also been obsessing with baths. There is nothing more relaxing than filling up my tub with hot water, while running my favorite bubble bar. I like to go extra in my baths, I LOVE using bath salts, bath oils, bath bombs and anything related towards creating a fun bath. As a full time student and full time employee, it's very important for me to dedicate some of my free time for self-care.♥️

I took a break from post card swaps, I don't think I'll be joining one anytime soon. As I've been getting older I have found new hobbies and sadly post-crossing is no longer one of them. Due to the obsession that I had from collecting post cards from places that I dreamed of visiting, I took the challenge to no longer dream of traveling to those places but to save up and make my dreams reality.

Beauty Swaps

skincare

Skincare is my number one priority. I mostly use anything that provides an intense hydration for my dry sensitive skin. I don't like to use products with a strong fragrance on my face (fragrance-free preferably). Here is a short list of products that I use in my day/night skincare routine:

  • facial moisturizers
  • serums for hydration or anti-aging
  • toners
  • essences
  • eye creams
  • sheet masks & peel of masks
  • facial mists

make-up

I'm very basic when it comes to makeup. I don't use bronzers, contouring products, and crazy lip colors. Please do not send me dollar store makeup, lip gloss, blush, single eye shadows, lip tint and anything cream formulated. Here is a short list of products that I would prefer:

  • brow liners in dark brown
  • mascara
  • foundation powder in light medium
  • liquid lipsticks
  • lip balms
  • nail polishes
  • make up brushes of any kind

Postcard Swaps

I love them stamped and written on:

  • map - I ALREADY HAVE: arizona, california, florida. hawaii, main, maryland, michigan, minnesota, missouri, nevada, new mexico, ohio, oklohoma, texas and west virginia
  • flag - I ALREADY HAVE: texas, china, brazil, england, germany and indonesia
  • state - "Greetings from...."
  • mount rushmore

Comment: First off, your letter spoke to my heart. I am going through something very similar right now. I can definitely relate to every word and it felt strange reading it. It is because those words hit close to home. About yellow-several horrific events in my life took place pertaining to that color. I always associate that color with bad luck now. Every time, I give it a chance and try to wear that color bad luck strikes again. I love the bangles you sent me they are so great for the summer! I gave my daughter the lip gloss she likes it! The earrings are adorable! I can surely use the scarf accessory as well! I truly enjoyed your swap and the letter was amazing! Exactly the words I needed to hear today! Really hope and pray things will be good for both of us! If you ever want to be pen pals feel free to drop me a line or an inbox message. I always like to hear what is on people's minds. Thank you again for a very memorable swap! Happy swapping and have an amazing weekend!

Comment: Airel! I wish I could give you 10 Stars! From the way you wrapped the items and presented them, with the song and the items inside matching to the thoughtful items! OMG You have blown my mind! I have been getting a lot of swaps lately that were fine but just no thought put into them and your swap has so restored my faith in Swap-Bot! It was so nice and pretty and so much thoughtfulness put into it! You are so creative and cute! Thank you!
Response: Yay!!! I’m very glad you enjoyed your package. I love all the songs from The Little Mermaid, and I had tons of fun matching the items with the song lyrics. I always enjoy making my swaps fun to open. I try my best to send the quality that I would like to receive.
