About Me

Due to Covid-19 I am trying to leave my house as little as possible, and my areas postal service is slower than usual. I apologise for any delays in my items receiving you, but just hang in there and wait a little longer than usual and you will receive from me. I am always happy to arrange a resend if that is needed, just do let me know. If I send out late I will always tell you in advance.

Hey! My name is Courtney and I have been penpalling and doing swaps for 2 years, and many of my penpals have reccomended swapbot so I decided to check it out.

I am currently studying English Literature at uni since i love books and reading. I have a pet rabbit, dog and a horse since I love animals, but I always keep them away from my outgoing mail incase my penpals have any allergies to them.

I am lesbian, any pride related items (generic rainbow or lesbian themed) are hugely welcomed, and if you have homophobic views keep them to yourself please! I am also a feminist so things to do with this are also welcomed.

I come from a smoke-free and alcohol-free home!

My interests

I love horse riding! I have been riding for 9 years, I used to own my own but now I share a horse. The horse I owned was Romella, and she was an 11year old Welsh Cob (Section D) liver chestnut with white socks and white markings on her face. Now I share a 7 year old strawberry roan cob called Pudsey, and she is the sweetest!

I love crystals, mindfulness and yoga, and have been trying to live more spiritually and peacefully recently, I am collecting dream catchers at the moment so receiving some would be nice. I am also pagan/wiccan, so recieving anything to do with those kind of themes I would enjoy.

I really enjoy history, and I collect old items. I am interested in WW2 and medieval britain in particular.

I love jazz music to rock music to indie, and mostly 70s-90s music.Some bands I like are The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, King crimson, Sports team, Nothing but thieves, MGMT, Joy Division, Wolf Alice, Alice in chains, Sonic youth, Biffy Clyro, Radiohead, etc.

I love books and reading and everything to do with literature. I love poetry, so if you have any particular quotes or poems you like, please send them to me!

I am trying to fill up a wall in my room with other people's art and handwritten quotes that look pretty, so if you would like to send anything for me to stick on my wall it would be greatly appreciated. If you do, please write your swap-bot username on the back so when I stick them up I still know who sent what!

Tea preferences

I don’t like anything lemony, tropical flavoured or with ginger or pineapple but I have no allergies so i can have any tea.

I LOVE weird or unusual tea flavours if you have any. I also like sweet teas, blueberry, vanilla, chocolate, cakes, caramel, mint or anything red berry flavoured.

If you are sending from the USA, I would love to receive David's tea as it is my fave brand but we do not have it in the UK.

I like being sent both loose teas and teas in packs.

Favourite colour

Hunter green, blue, and brown.

I absolutely love hunter green, and deep shades of green like emerald/forest green too. Green is my absolute FAVE colour so if you can, please send things in deep shades of green!

I like shades of browns too as it completes the vintage look, and matches my journal theme.

I like these styles: celestial, cottagecore, arty, vintage, goth, steampunk, wicca, grotesque, dark,

Favourite animal

Horses, red pandas, foxes, birds of prey and woodland creatures! I love love love animals!

What I like to receive

This section isn't me demanding you send these, but if you are sending to me in a profile based swap, or just want to make me happy here is a list of my loves :)

I love anything vintage, animal (ESPECIALLY HORSES), travel, celestial or botanical themed.

I like aesthetics like cottage core, woodland themes, mushrooms, steampunk, victorian, dark academia, witchcraft, gothy,

Vintage music sheets, vintage ledger paper, vintage vintage vintage things! Old papers make me SO happy!


I love ephermera, mainly of vintage tickets, pharmacy lables, etc, tea cards and cigarette cards

ATCs, or anything drawn or created by you for that matter.

Envelopes are always welcome since I run out a lot.

Washi stickers, sticker flakes, rub on transfers, vellum prints, notecards, all sorts of crafting shapes and pieces

Bullet journal supplies, inky pens the type that feel really nice to write with, nice stickers, brushpens etc

Pretty things to stick on my wall

LGBT themed things! I am lesbian, so any lesbian themed flags or rainbow themed things are appreciated!

Feminism based things

Handmade/hand drawn things

I love pocket bacs from bath and body works but we do not have one in england.

I like string jewellery, as I find chains uncomfortable so if you want to send me something make sure it is on string!

Earrings are fine as long as they are not cheap or too heavy, I prefer dangling charms than studs but nothing that is so heavy it pulls down too much!

I also love candles, and wax scented wax melts and will enjoy practically any scent. If I do not like it I can give it to my mother, who also loves candles.

I will love anything you send as long as it is not junk, so chances are if you don't want it I do not either.

What I don't like to receive

Anything kawaii, cutesy, disney or childish. It just really is not my style and I wouldn't have any use for it in any of my projects or letters. Please no reward stickers or free stickers as I do not use them.

Nothing religious except things linked to paganism or wicca as i do not care for it.

I don't really like keyrings or bookmarks as I have way too much of both already.

Nothing too girly please either

I don't like holiday themed items or bugs except bees and butterflies, so please don't send any!

Food Preferences

I would like to try food from different countries, but I am vegetarian so please send something veggy friendly.

For savory food like crackers/crisps I like plain salted flavour, but you can send me a flavour unique to your country if you have any! I love paprika flavour but can't handle anything too spicy! haha

I love chocolate with nuts inside or salted caramel, or even just plain. I like both milk and dark chocolate but I am not very fond of white chocolate.

I don't really eat sweets or candy apart from licorice so I would prefer to not get them, as I would have to find someone else to eat them. My only acception to candy is if you find vegetarian friendly gummy sweets as I love them but most contain pork gelatin which I can't eat.

I have no allergies, but I don't like things like fruitcake, raisins, pineapple, etc.
