My book blog
I'm an introverted, very quiet person. Indoorsy, catlover, couch potato. I love whatever I consider beautiful, and I like to be surronded by pretty things.
I like to write letters about books, everyday life, cultural differences and local traditions, my dolls, anything I'm interested in.
I am obsessed with cats, dolls, whatever series I'm watching at the moment, history of costume, and pretty much everything I've listed in hobbies and interests (read further)
Please don't send me anything that doesn't fit in an envelope (this is great for those in a budget, like me). Argentina's mail system doesn't have a regard for gifts, so everything is treated as a purchase and lots of taxes are added, which I can't afford at the moment.
So, until things get better, thank you but no, thank you.
If we're partners for a profile related swap, please choose things that can be fitted in an envelope. Otherwise, I won't be able to receive it.
Thank you :)

Hello, how are you? I have so many favorite art works from different periods and different artists. It's really hard for me to choose only one... One of my all time favorites is gorgeous and naughty painting by Jean-HonorÃ© Fragonard. It's called The Swing. I actually ha an honor to see this work few times at Wallace Collection in London. For me it presents the true spirit of Rococo period.
(So...I couldn't get the original artwork I wanted to upload to work, so I'm going with Alex Grey's "kissing"...he's another psychedelic artist who I absolutely ADORE! But, you should also check out the art I originally wanted to share. She can be found on Instagram @smallmoon_ and is an amazing young artist whose trippy work gets me right in the feels.)
Starry Night Vincent Van Gogh
