Quick note. I'm sending from the UK and International post sometimes takes a while. I have never, and will never flake on a swap so if you're waiting for something please let me know and if it ever doesn't arrive I'll always resend. Thanks.
Photographer, cat person (who also loves Dogs), coffee addict, music lover, film geek.
I love Harry Potter and am a Gryffindor (Pottermore)
My favourite colours are Red, purple, Black, Silver and brights like orange, yellow and green. I love black and white images and photography and black and white things are cool as well. I'm not a big fan of pink.
Loves Star Wars and Dr. Who. Hates reality TV except for The (UK) Apprentice, Bake Off and Masterchef.
Loves Books, learning, discovering new things, photography quests (see my blog for a list of my current quests and scavenger hunts (https://bigfishlittlefishcb.wordpress.com). I've just got into crafts to relieve the stress of my day job and am loving learning. Cricut apprentice, Rock painter, trainee crocheter and I'm really getting into papercrafts. I'll try anything once :)
I've also started my first ever bullet journal this year and my first ever scrapbooking so ephemera, stickers,(not too childish please), anything that I could use in a scrapbook, washi etc is always something I love to receive.
Vegetarian, animal lover who just wants to get to know more of the amazing people on this planet and discover new things as often as possible.
I live just outside of Oxford with my fiancé and a slightly unhinged but loveable Cat called Smodge.
I have a fairly eclectic taste in music and always find it really hard to answer the 'favourite music' question.
I love discovering new music from bands and singers who aren't necessarily well known yet
Of the more mainstream music some of my faves (in no particular order) are...
The Black Keys, Against Me!, Alabama 3, Beth Ditto (And Gossip), Bloc Party, Collective Soul, David Bowie, Frank Turner, Incubus, Jamiroquai, Mad Caddies, Manic Street Preachers, Queen, The Stereophonics, Faithless
There are lots more and I'm always open to listening to anything that I haven't got to know yet.
I'm not a big fan of Hip Hop (although I do like some) or R&B and really don't like manufactured boy/girl bands.
I love reading and try really hard to find more time to get lost in a great book.
Some of my favourites are...
To Kill A Mocking Bird - Harper Lee, The Handmaids Tale - Margaret Atwood, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings Maya Angelou, All of the Harry Potter Books - JK Rowling, Leaving Atlanta - Tayari Jones
Star Wars, Guardians Of The Galaxy, The Princess Bride, Harry Potter (All Of Them), Coyote Ugly, The Boat That Rocked, The Lost Boys, Muppet Christmas Carol, The Die Hards (first three really but especially the 1st, and yes I do consider it to be a Christmas Movie :), Jaws, Mad Max (especially the first 3), Bond Movies (but especially Sean)
Buffy, Angel, Homeland, Stranger Things, Eastenders, The Good Place, Masterchef, NCIS

I don't want to list a load of 'do not sends' as I always think the swaps should be the senders choice but FYI - I don't like Black tea, I love fruits, herbal, green and Jasmine but not black of any variety, and I hate Anchovies although I can't imagine a swap where anchovies might be included. Roses - or rather the smell of Roses, gives me a headache. Love Island and reality TV stuff and religious things.
