About Me

Updated: June 10, 2013

I love getting a suprise in the mail box. I have been pen palling and swapping for many years. I participate in postcrossing from time to time and I am in a few pen pals groups in Facebook. I collect many things and have quite a few hobbies. I am interested in doing private swaps so please contact me. I truly try to send people swaps that I would be happy to receive.

My favorite music includes: 80's rock, current top 40's and country. Some of my favorites include Bryan Adams, Heart, Pink, Lady Antebellum, NKOTB, Miranda Lambert, Little BigTown, One Republic, Matchbox 20, Kelly Clarkson,etc.

My favorite books include: the Twilight series, The Host, the Hunger Games series, Dark Hunter series, Sookie Stackhouse series, Hush, Hush series, anything from Nicholas Sparks, Anne Rice, Maeve Binchy, Cecilia Ahern, etc.

My favorite movies are comedies, chick flicks and some dramas. Some of them include:27 Dresses, Sixteen Candles, A Walk to Remember, Wedding Planner, the Twilight movies, the Hunger Game movie.

My favorite shows include: Once Upon a time, The Carrie Diaries, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, Hoarders, An Idiot Abroad, Merlin, Mad Men, Golden Girls, Family Ties, Desperate Housewives, early Grey's Anatamy and Felicity.

Wish List Preference

Not to be very picky or ungrateful but after doing a few swaps and reading other members' profiles I see it is suggested to post a detailed wish list on here. So here you go--

1 wish item right now is OPI nailpolish in James Bond 007 Anniversary sandblast polish in "Tiffany Case" its a light blue color and I think only sold through Ulta.com or Ulta stores.

2 Brambleberry Rose Lip Balm from the Rosebud Perfume Co. you can buy this from victoriantradingco.com

3 Benefit's Erase Paste you can find this at Ulta, Sephora or Benefit.com I think

New, unopened/full sticker sheets (no teacher reward types please)* full single sheets ok

New unopened stationary sets or memo pads at least 5"x7" in size* please no single sheets or loose memo sheets

Lastly, please do not send me old or used items that should be put in the trash (for example, old cosmetic samples or old candy that have been sitting in the junk drawer for ages); religious items or Anything that smells like heavy cigerette smoke or pet dander (I'm allergic)

**All I ask is that you use your best judgement and send something you would like to receive. I will try to do the same as well in all of my swaps and use my own standards in preferences when I send items. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
