About Me

This is a notice especially to my dear penpals. We've moved to a new flat, so I have a new address. Please, PM me if you're not sure you have it! I will be able to pick my mail from the old address for some time, but it'll be easier to use the new one. Thank you! :-)

Hello, I'm a 25-yo girl trying to escape the mundane of everyday life by connecting to people all over the world.

I'm addicted to cooking and baking, nice stationery, walks in the forest, books, languages, Star Wars and a couple of TV series (Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Twin Peaks, Downton Abbey, Friends, Sherlock, Doctor Who). I love getting to know new people and learning about their lives, so if you want to send me a letter and you're not sure what to write about, just describe what you're doing right now or what your average day looks like.

Looking forward to hearing from you! :) Andrea

PS: I speak English and French. My French writing and speaking is not much, but I can read it well, so feel free to write to me in French, if you want!

PS2: Please, bear in mind that even though I usually send my swaps as soon as possible, it might take some time before they reach you - as I live in the Czech Republic, it takes 1-2 weeks for my package to get to the USA or other overseas destinations. Thanks for your understanding :)

Favorite Music

My taste in music is very ecclectic. I used to listen to mainly rock music when I was younger, but now I cannot say I have a favourite genre. Oh, maybe except 1980s and early 1990s music. I love that!

Here's a random list of my favourite artists:

  • Tori Amos
  • Bastille
  • Pearl Jam
  • Eskmo
  • Slipknot
  • Marylin Manson
  • Alanis Morissette
  • Die Antwoord
  • Florence and The Machine
  • Michael Jackson
  • Emiliana Torrini
  • The Cranberries
  • Sting
  • Fever Ray
  • Imogen Heap
  • Duffy

I don't really like country music, silly pop and most of Czech music. Other than that, I'm open to suggestions. Feel free to tell me what your favourite songs/artists are!

  • Ray Bradbury
  • Olga Tokarczuk
  • Peter Høeg

  • currently reading: A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle

Favorite Television

  • Mad Men
  • Game of Thrones
  • Black Books
  • Little Britain
  • Monty Python's Flying Circus
  • Futurama

  • 30 Rock
  • Friends
  • Utopia
  • Call the Midwife
  • Girls
  • Hannibal
  • Luther

Things for swap:

I love writing and getting postcards and letters and I'm always open to swaps! I'm active on Postcrossing.com - I stumbled upon that website by chance and I've loved it ever since. If you want to send me a postcard (either written and stamped or a blank one in an envelope, doesn't matter), here's a list of themes I like:

  • black and white postcards
  • vintage-style postcards
  • pictures of food
  • pictures of books, libraries and reading people
  • pictures of old buildings, deep forests and forgotten places
  • art reproduction postcards (especially surrealists, pre-raphaelites, Renaissance art, pop-art, Art Nouveau)
  • postcards with children's books illustrations
  • pictures of spring or autumn nature and countryside
  • I'm a huge fan of Star Wars, so anything Star Wars related would be great!

I'm addicted to stationery, so that's what I'd like to swap the most, along with labels, stickers, ribbons, tapes... Also, I'm a food junkie and I love cooking and baking, so anything food-related would be wonderful as well.

Things I like/collect/am addicted to:

  • tea (especially herbal)
  • cute stationery
  • tights (I'm 165 cm tall, just in case...)
  • cute socks (shoe UK size 6)
  • shoes!
  • baking supplies and ingredients (cute cupcake liners would be very welcome, as they are not readily available in my country :))
  • organic lipbalms
  • milk chocolate (allergic to nuts)
  • William Shakespeare (I collect various editions of his "Sonnets")
  • ribbons
  • quirky brooches
  • fountain pen cartridges in fun colours (e.g. purple, turquoise, teal, brown, pink, orange...)
  • buttons
  • washi tape
  • stickers and labels
  • mixtapes
  • Star Wars
  • books
  • poetry
  • cupcakes
  • food in general
  • cookbooks
  • blank journals
  • Cadbury chocolate
  • cinnamon
  • everything vintage
  • beads and jewellery findings
  • Alanis Morissette
  • Art Nouveau and Surrealism
  • lavender
  • vanilla
  • rubber stamps
  • forests
  • hydrangea
  • ranunculus
  • lilac
  • rain
  • scraps of paper with nice patterns (I've just bought a Xyron sticker maker, so I can use scraps of minimum 3x3 cm for the stickers! :))
  • ...and more stuff I can't remember right now.

I don't have any kids myself, but I've got a little sister who's 9. Her name is Terezka and right now she's really into horses, dinosaurs, reading, ghosts, mysteries, kittens, dogs, Postcrossing.com and stickers. She loves stickers! And anything pink, glittery and generally cute is always welcome, of course. If you want, you can include some stuff for her in the swap as well, but please, don't send her candy or chocolate which contains nut - she's allergic, same as me. Thanks :)


  • stuff meant for children - generally, I like cute stuff, kawaii is OK, but please, no over-the-top, tacky, kitschy puppies or babies or something. Also, I'm not really into Hello Kitty.

  • nuts - I have a major sweet tooth and I love chocolate, but I'm allergic to nuts. I can eat almonds and coconut, but the rest is a no-no. If the list of ingredients says "may contain traces of nuts", that's OK, but "contains nuts" might give me some serious trouble.

  • fish recipes - again, I have a serious allergy for fish, so I'd have no use for them.

  • religious items and talk

  • fruit tea - I don't like it, unless it's fruit-flavoured green or black tea or fruit and herb blend

  • lemon-flavoured tea

  • scrapbooking 3D embellishments- I like embellishing my letters and envelopes with stickers and labels, but other than that, I don't do scrapbooking.

  • ATCs

  • lipgloss and nail polish - never use them.

  • kitschy "humorous" or rude stuff

Comment: Thanks so much for the beautiful scarves! My daughter and I adore the red and white houndstooth one in particular, although we enjoyed them both :) And the transportation postcards!!! I don't receive many, so I was over the moon. I can't wait to share them with my son :) Thanks so much for another amazing RabbitHeart swap :)
Comment: Thanks so much for the advice -- I've picked up bits and pieces over the years, but not all the bits and pieces that I've needed. And I love both the hairstyles! I'd pick out outfits for you any day for free; I love your sense of style :)

Hello from Malaysia :) I'm looking through my pile of letters from swap-bot. Not sure you still remember or not. I still have the striped tee you sent for a swap you hosted years ago. Lovely one! Cheers, Naomi

Thanks! Leslie

Hi! I received your angel package today for "Handcream + surprise" - thank you so much! The teas and the raspberry hot chocolate seem delicious :) Let's hope that there will be no (or at least less) flakers in the future swaps!
