About Me

Currently Listening to:

"I Could Get Used to This" by The Veronicas. Things have been looking up. :)


My name is Lauren. I live in L.A. :) I graduated from CSUN. :D Yay lol

I love to create things. :) I was a girl scout for 12 years so I guess that's where all the crafty stuff came from. My favorite movies are: Heathers, City of Angels, My Sister's Keeper, Dogma, A wrinkle in time, Speak, etc. My favorite author: Christopher Pike. In love with his book Sati right now. I work as a secretary at a tax business. I'm on here to swap cool things and have fun. Maybe make a few friends in the process. :)

I am always up to do Private Swaps. :) Just PM me. :)

About Me


I love anything Harry Potter!, Star Wars!!! I'm so stoked with the movie coming out!! I'm a big Disney nerd. :D So anything related to that. :D Anime/manga anything. I watch mainstream animes as well as non-mainstream. American Horror Story!! Is there a fandom for Studio Ghibli films?? I absolutely love those!! I also have a guilty pleasure for Musicals. And anything Horror related!! American Horror Story!! Season 6 started!!! Whoot!!


My favorite artists/bands are Alanis Morissette, Peter Gabriel, Linkin Park, Taylor Swift, Pink, Lady Gaga (I love her style), Duran Duran, Madonna, STP, etc.

I love songs from John Mayer, Kelly Clarkson, Aerosmith, Nirvana, Carrie Underwood, Regina Spektor, Imogen Heap, Pearl Jam, and others.

I don't like rap too much. Only certain songs. And the only country singers I like are Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, and a couple others. But other than that I like music. I'm just more of an alternative/pop gal . :)

Kawaii Favs

Since I'm in mainly Kawaii Swaps right now. I figured I would dedicate a section to my Kawaii likes. :D

My favorite characters right now are:

Kirimi, Gudetama, Doreamon, Tare Panda, Sugar Bunnies, Little Twin Stars, Pom Purin.

Newest Update* I have been loving the newer and older Sanrio characters lately. Cinamoroll is so darn adorable! And Bonbonribbon is too cute! I'm loving Kerroppe and Pochaco as well. The more obscure the better. :) And that new character Sanrio came out with... the fox that's kowaii. Super fun! I love horror and kawaii so that's a perfect mix.

I'm getting a little tired of Hello Kitty and Rillakuma. But if it's unique and different I don't mind. :) Also getting a bit tired of My Melody. Unless it's unique or Alice in wonderland themed.

Im loving food with faces. As well as sushi Kawaii!!!

Wishlist: Anything Sushi. There are so many characters that dress up like sushi it's amazing!! :D

Im loving Sugar Bunnies as well. :) Anything Pastel cute Kawaii I am wishing for!!

There is also this new sushi line with the little san-x fish. I would be so happy to receive anything from that!!

Favorite Crafts

I love using old pieces of things and creating new things with them. I love altering books and journals. I love writing. ATC's! I love kawaii!! I'm very big into that right now. Japanese Culture in general is pretty awesome to me. I do about anything. I'm always open to new things. :)

Wish List

Christmas Wishlist!!

Right now I am loving handmade soaps and perfume oils (or just oils that are safe for the body and smell yummy. :D). I always will love anything kawaii or cute. :) Nightmare before Christmas items! I'm loving all the things from Hot Topic. Anything gamer related is awesome. :) Items like from NerdBlock, or lootcrate. Lootcrate Anime. I love Lush. But am trying to stay away from the bathbombs because my bathtub is not working at the moment. I love washi and deco tape. Anything snoopy Christmas. :) or Snoopy/Peanuts in general. Harry Potter is awesome. :) I am a Ravenclaw. :) I have been collecting Disney items lately. Items from the actual Disney store Or from the parks. I am not into the target Disney items or knock offs. I always love Plushes, keychains, stationery, etc. from my favorite themes. :)


**I'm into creepy cute things!! Creepy Kawaii is so awesome!!

***Also really into pastel Lolita themed items. I love the color scheme.

I'm really into Kawaii stickers right now!!! Sticker flakes and Kawaii sticker sheets!! It has turned into an obsession. :O Lol.

I'm really into snacks and beauty/bath products from other countries, creative pieces, Kawaii items ( anything kawaii I love. Stickers, letter sets, squishes, etc. love it all!), Hello kitty, mixed cds, cute things, stories, post secret, anything to do with the circus :) Especially the old circuses (ex: side-shows, they are soo interesting:) ), flip books, Asian candies/snacks. Anything Kawaii. Letter sets. Memo sheets, sticker flakes, Tarot decks, Spell books, Anything magical, Harry potter, Washi tapes, Dog items for my puppy. She is a size small. Lush products! But no bath bombs please. Our tub isn't working right now.

Things like stickers, stationery, little plushies, etc. Cool looking Keychains! The cuter and or with gadgets (light up or pen or etc) the better. :D Lanyards with the cool little plushies or dangled keychain at the end. (Example: Think like Pokemon with a pikachu toy or stuffed animal at the end and the lanyard is decorated with pickachus.) I will take any design. :D Any cartoon, anime, cute character, etc.


Postcards (have way too many of those unless they are from other countries or are kawaii!), Reward stickers, Scrap booking items (again, have way too many of these unless they are Halloween theme. Then I will gladly accept.), Tea (don't drink it)

Regarding Flaking...

If I am your partner and you do not get my swap then please tell me. I try to send my items right away so it gives a lot of time for the packages to the location desired. I will definitely resend any swaps that don't make it through. :)
