About Me

I love all things Christmas, kawaii, pink, girly, collecting postcards, souvenirs, and reading books. I'm passionate about travel, shopping, art, food, Japanese culture, and music.

I'm bilingual in English and French. I'm currently studying Norwegian, Finnish, & Swedish!

Dislikes: Please note, that I'm a non-smoker.I have no problem with smokers, but if you are smoking and writing postcards in your home sadly postcards arrive with the scent and I have to discard those cards. :(

I'm also not a fan of wild animals unless there are some specific requests under my postcard preferences, please keep it in mind for miscellaneous swaps.

If you don't receive from me, please contact me first and offer me the opportunity to re-send rather than bashing me. Thanks to all of you that have been awesome.

I'm happy with all tourist cards-I'm not picky, it's just wonderful to "travel" through a postcard. =) Please no art, ad, zazzle, handmade, or "crafty postcards". I also prefer to be sent cards that are nice and not torn from a postcard book. I prefer that flag and map postcards are sent blank in an envelope.

I love both sweet and savory snacks!

I dislike snacks that are spicy. I don't eat any sort of gummy candies.I have an allergy to beets- so please don't send any snacks with them.

I love anything with chocolate, strawberries, raspberries. I also love baked goods and pastries!

I'm very open-minded, so be creative and send me some of your favorites. When I travel , I'm always happy to buy snacks "blindly" that look interesting. Please send me snacks that are "non-American". Donuts and cupcakes are great examples. I hope to learn about your country by trying out snacks that are typical there.

Recipes/Food Preferences

I'm always happy to try out new recipes from other countries. I typically don't enjoy eating foods that too spicy. I eat all meats with the exception of lamb and rabbit. Please keep in mind that I'm allergic to beets, so I don't cook anything with beets in my household. I'm completely open to everything else. Feel free to ask me if you're not sure. :-)

Drink Preferences
