About Me


I have been absent from Swap Bot for several months until I recently began to miss swapping a lot.

Favorite Music

I am mainly into pop, rock, alternative and indie. I always love to discover new music and bands.

Artists I enjoy are for example Mando Diao, Lily Allen, Katy Perry, Silbermond, Jason Mraz, David Guetta, Farin Urlaub, Razorlight, Philipp Poisel, The Black Eyed Peas, Billy Talent etc.

Recently I have also discovered my love for musical. So far Lion King and the Rocky Horror Show have been my favourite.


Favorite Movies

I especially like comedy, romance and drama and am not into horror and science fiction. Movies I like are for example: Amelie, Like in Heaven, Donnie Darko, Pirates of the Carribean, Legally Blonde, Just like heaven, Brokeback Mountain, Chocolat.

Favorite Television

Gilmore Girls, Deseperate Housewives, Greys Anatomy, Queer as Folk, Glee, How I met your mother, Entourage, King of Queens.

Favorite Crafts

I sadly have hardly any time for crafting at the moment.

What I like...

Things that I love (and are always greatly appreciated in swaps):

  • nice pens
  • tube scarves
  • Sharpies in dark colors (esp. thin ones)
  • everything kawaii (I love Hello Kitty, Chococat, everything with strawberries etc.)
  • necklaces and bracelets (silver color or beads)
  • notepads, notebooks
  • decotape
  • letter sets (esp. kawaii, nothing with real animal pictures please)
  • tea (I love to try out new flavors, please note that I am not very fond of rooibos tea, white tea, and tea with spices; no loose tea please)
  • hot chocolate (if you are from the US you could make me very happy with SwissMiss hot chocolate) *sugarfree gum
  • sweets from all over the world (no dark chocolate and licorice please)
  • everything related to Sweden and Scandinavia in general
  • items with matryoshka doll print
  • items with owl print
  • books (English or German; esp. thrillers and chick lit)
  • everything pink, purple and brown/blue
  • lipgloss, lip balm
  • beauty products in general (shower gel, bath bombs, lotion etc.)
  • any Lush products
  • Concerning make up I prefer natural colors (I only wear black mascara, eye shadow in rose and taupe shades, transparent lip gloss, lipstick: nude and rosewood shades)
  • nailpolish (preferrably good qualitiy one. Colors I like are: grey shades, dark red, violet, purple, white, mud, taupe)
  • candles
  • everything with owls, fairies, angels and elves
  • beautiful picture postcards with nature motives.
  • socks (I wear European size 40)
  • books in Swedish language that are rather easy to read (children books or books written for Swedish- learners)- I am taking Swedish classes at the moment and it would be great to read simple books as a practise.


Things I don't like so much:

  • Scents: Coffee, Rose, Jasmine, Patchouli
  • very artificial scents and flavours in general
  • Coffee
  • Religious items
  • Tea: Rooibos tea, spice tea, Yogi tea, plain white tea, plain black tea, plain green tea.
  • Loose tea
  • Diddl
  • Disney
  • earrings (I sadly cannot wear most of them because of an allergy)


... contact me before giving me a 1 rating. I am not a flaker and I will of course resend a swap if it has disappeared on its way to you.

... note that addresses here are written in a slightly different way than the one swap bot shows to you:

  • Name
  • Street
  • ZIP CODE city ( Swap bot displays this the other way round)
  • Country

I will receive your swap either way, but it might be delayed a bit if the zip code is written after the city.


Very sadly I have been flaked on the following swaps and tags:

  • Random Envie tag from Kayleena via Big Swaps group forum. (tagged on Nov 1st 2010).

  • 30 day journal project round 2 by ClareyFairy (deadline: Nov 10th, 2010)

  • Knock my Socks off #6 (European) by gony (deadline was February 26th, 2012, member's profile has been deleted). This swap was angelled by juliedro. Thank you SO much!!

  • 20 questions notebook journal by Charlottexxx (deadline: May 31st, 2012). This swap was angelled by rachelw1. THANK YOU!

  • 20 questions journal swap #5 by SweetSerendipity (deadline: October 15th, 2012)
