About Me

Just me and the girls

Hi there my name is Melanie and I'm on here to make friends!

Lol, to be honest I've been really introverted lately and nothing wrong with that! I just feel like I need to get out of my comfort zone and connect with more people out there. Kind of like zooming out of my life for a bit, if that makes sense?

I'm really into journaling, I dab into Bujo, but honestly I love the long hand, written out, filled in pages of conscious thought. I love the color green; from a dark forrest shade to mint. Into the supernatural, but more into folklore, urban legends, and cryptids. Really like herbal teas, noncaffeinated sometimes caffeinated, mostly not. I'm a bobba milktea drinker as well, grew up on the stuff. I'm really trying to get into self care: paper face masks, or homemade recipes or remedies, etc. As a child of the 90s I'm real into patches. I recent got into crystals and their properties to affect positivity.

Favorite Television


Honestly, I'm obsessed with Witches on TV! Hex Girls, Halliwell sisters and the Vera-Vaugh sister, and Beauchamp. Any paranormal show, though I've moved away from high school drama and towards college or adulting main characters. More relatable, you know?

Also I'm real into DC comic tv shows. I love all things Batman, grew up watching Batman the Animated series. Also watched old school anime: Sailor Moon, Card Capture Sakura, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Digimon, Pokemon, Metabots, Initial D, etc.

Favorite Books

I love reading books by women authors, people of colors, women of color writers, and by the queer community. I want to get into more poetry or spoken word.

I use to read a lot of young adult, something about a young girl toppling regimes. Now I mostly read Adult Paranormal romances: Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews, and Shelly Laurenston.

Favorite Movies

Romantic comedy, but lately more on the comedy side. Do like horror, but not gore or torture I'm not into that kind of stuff.

Top rewatch list:

Isn't it Romantic?

Don't look under the bed

Harry Potter series

Dark Knight Nolan Series

Hocus Pocus

10 things I hate about you Mulan


Witches of East End

Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki films

Don't likes

Still brainstorming.

Favorite teas

Green Tea Latte

UPDATE: Unless your profile states you dislike receiving teas (no judgement) I will be sending individually packaged teabags in my swaps. I'll try to accommodate user preferences, but if unstated it's going to be senders (my) choice. Hope that's okay?

So I drink coffee in the mornings out of necessity for caffeine. But what I really enjoy is decaffeinated/caffeine free herbal or fruit teas. I do caffeinated teas on the regular, but I am the type of person who pours herself a steaming cuppa and forgets about it. I think I kind of like my tea that way, because I have burnt the roof of my mouth and tongue too many times. I don't over steep my tea, honest I set a timer and everything. I guess I'm trying to expand my palette. My favorite teas so far are:

-unsweetened malsa spice chai

-pumpkin spice tea


-fusion/mix black teas

-herbal teas

Favorite Crafts

As I alluded earlier, I use to be really into Bujo, but now I just like journaling in general. I like to write down my thoughts unfiltered in my journal. So I guess I would appreciate things that can go into it, like:

+scraps of paper

+origami patterned paper


+magnet bookmarks

+cutesy paperclips

+cutouts of my interests, etc.

Things/motifs I like...

  • mermaids

  • witches

  • Harry Potter theme (my favorite characters are Neville, Ron, Hermione, Tonks, but I love them all though and that was just to name a few lol)

  • wanderlust (nature)

  • mint (color and flavor)

Comment: Hey Mels! Thank you for everything <3 Brazilian customs opened the mail, but I think there was no problem with it. It arrived pretty quickly, actually. I have gastrites, so caffeine-free tea is always welcome. You got it right, cause Stash is my favorite tea brand! Can't wait to try it and will answer you soon :)
