About Me

Hello, all!

I just turned 30 a few months ago, and I'm currently a stay at home mom to the most amazing kid. My husband and I have a cat who we love and adore also as well as foster kittens every now and then.

I live in NYC and before becoming a mom, I was on the medical staff and behavioral therapy staff at a vet and rescue group for abandoned and neglected dogs and cats. I got to bottle feed tiny newborn kittens and puppies, as well as work with dogs seized from fighting rings and neglectful homes. It showed me the absolute worst of humanity, but also the best.. and it definitely prepared me for becoming a mom!

Other than that, I enjoy photography, playing the piano, and gardening.. I'm slightly obsessed with succulents and will never say no to adding another one to my collection.

I was in a bad accident in 2017. Three years later, I still have to deal with a ton of constant pain from nerve damage and other injuries. It always makes me smile to send out items that I know will make other people happy! Making other people smile is something that helps distract me and helps me to cope with the pain I live with daily.

Was this about me a tad all over the place? Perhaps. Is that the kind of person i am? Absolutely.

  • Please NO cosmetics, bath bombs, or anything skin related. I have super sensitive skin and need things all natural and fragrance free. Other than that, everything is super appreciated!

**I will mark a swap as sent when it goes into the mailbox, though if it's after 3 pm, they won't be picked up until the next day.

I will rate swaps the same day I receive them.

If you do not receive the swap from me within a week of the sent date, please let me know and I can gladly resend!

I use a scale to measure the weight of an envelope,.but if there is ever postage due at arrival, please let me know immediately and I will reimburse. Fingers crossed that never happens though! **
