Hi! I'm Jaimie, i'm 20 and I live in England, UK. I'm quite new here, but am loving it so far! I've hosted a few swaps and have some groups i've created so have a look if you'd like to join! I'd noticed there wasn't many UK-based swaps so for those of us that want swaps to be a little less expensive postage-wise, feel free to join! I'm trying to keep swaps up 99% of the time so they should be pretty active groups!
I absolutely love animals. I currently have two chihuahua dogs, a 6 year old short-hair female called Tink, who my family re-homed 4 years back (but over time she just sort of became mine!) - she only has one eye but as she's a rescue we aren't 100% sure what happened to her! She's not affected by it whatsoever and is just adorable.
I then also have a 13 week old (as i'm writing this - he was born in September 2019) long-hair male puppy who myself and my boyfriend picked up 2nd December, who we called Lucky. My pups are definitely some of the best bits about my life and I couldn't imagine life without them!
I've linked 2 Instagram accounts which I use as often as I can, as well as my Pinterest where i've started creating boards quite often now, so let me know if you follow any and i'll follow you all back!
Some things I enjoy doing are:
-Spending time with my boyfriend and our doggies
-Taking photos and using Pinterest for inspiration (I've got a few boards on the account linked if you'd like to see- I have a thing for aesthetics aha!)
-Writing pen-pal letters both handwritten and on the app 'Slowly'.
-Planning decoratively (Instagram account linked)
-Shopping (Mostly online as I don't go out too much due to anxieties etc).
-Creating crafty blog posts, which is something new I've been doing. My blog is linked if you'd like to see!
Some things I love that might help give you an idea of me and things to send if you're personalizing swaps, are:
-Animals- especially dogs, foxes, hedgehogs, and any cute pictures of all animals!
-Anything craft/planner/pen pal related - stickers, washi tapes, writing papers and envelopes, sticky notes, die cuts, postcards, notecards etc.
-fashion, makeup & hair related things (I love things like bandanas & flower crowns especially).
-drawing/art- digital especially!
-Quotes- motivational, positivity, inspirational, mental health positives, self care related etc
-Nature-related things, especially cacti and succulent plants
-Pastel colours - i'm not too keen on too bright or too dull things
-Christmas! It's my favourite time of the year for sure
-Autumn/Winter time, and anything to do with them
-candles - i'm sensitive to smells so if you'd like to do a candles/smellies-based swap, please mention to me - i'm really not sure why this is!
Of course i'll appreciate anything sent, but these are just a few ideas i've had!
I saw a few profiles do an A-Z of things they like to make swaps easier and to add more information and I loved the idea of it! (Will be added to over time).

ABOUT ADDRESS PLEASE READ FOR POSTED SWAPS! -
The address I've added for posted items to be sent out is my grandparents. The reason for this is that I am living between there and my boyfriends for the moment.
Due to having our new puppy (mentioned before in the about me section) and not wanting to disturb his living arrangements, especially while he settles in, i'm mostly at my boyfriends!
For this reason, any posted swaps sent to me may have a bit of a delay in ratings back to you. I get my mail from them at least weekly, usually more often, but just in case for whatever reason it's more of a wait, this is the reason for it!
I will rate pretty much instantly when I've got the swap with me, so please try to be patient when waiting for your rates, I will get round to them I promise!
There are also some things I'd rather not receive, and so I thought i'd add those (with the reasons why, don't want to sound ungrateful!) -
-Tea bags (I do drink tea, but only traditional English/breakfast teas, and I'm quite fussy too!)
-Unicorn/Mermaid/Mythical/Disney/Child-related etc items (Just isn't really something i'm into!)
-Scented Items (I'm quite picky and sensitive to smells)
-Religion-themed Things (I'm not religious and have no opinions either way about them, so any items related to this would probably be best sent to someone else! I am in no way against them or anything like that, just not something I really have a say on!)
-Politic-themed Things (Again, politics and things is also something I don't have a great deal of opinions on! I find it extremely hard to understand and as much as I get they're important, I'd rather not have them included in my swapping!)
-Cotton Wool / Wooden Lolly-Pop Sticks (Very random, but thought i'd add it in as a note just in case there comes a time where either of these things could possibly be included in a swap, as they make me cringe so much and for some reason I just reaaaally hate them haha!)
-Anything that could somehow be seen as offensive; I don't get offended easily but I wouldn't want a swap to be negative in any way!
