PLEASE let me know if I have not logged your swap. I had a back log of postcards and swaps waiting for me and I spent a whole day logging them all. I could have missed some by accident (I have two envelopes that are missing contents) please please let me know!! :)
Hello. My name is Anndrea and I am a 20 something living in Toronto, Canada. I work as a graphic designer by day but I have lots of interests other than design. I used to be part of a singing group and I also recorded many covers.
Another thing I like to do is write, write, write. I am an avid blogger. I write about travelling, as well as fashion, and make up. Oh, and I forgot to mention, cooking, and also going for afternoon tea

I have started listening to the Blogged 50 playlist on songza. I like all sorts of music but my all time favourite is Taylor Swift. I saw her in concert last year and she totally blew me away!
I love love love reading. My favourite author is Murakami Haruki. He has such amazing novels. I recently finished 1Q84! It was good but not as great as his other novels. I would say, my favourite is Kafka on the shore.
My favourite genre is post apocalyptic fiction. The first book that got me going was The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I read The Giver when I was younger but it wasn't the book that spurred me. Margaret Atwood is also a fantastic writer whose novels I can't seem to get enough of. Plus, she's Canadian, like me!
Of course, I read the Hunger Games and every YA novel that has a similar feel.
I currently host a book club that meets monthly.
I absolutely LOVE Once Upon a Time. Anything to do with twists on old classic fairytales are a must-watch for me. (Except Grimm...)
Here's a list of shows that are currently on my weekly queue.
Once Upon a Time (as mentioned above)
Switched at Birth
The Mindy Project
...as you can see, I just listed a bunch of sitcoms. Haha.
Lastly, I love make up. I am subscribed to many beauty boxes. I told you I love getting packages! Anyway, make up makes me happy. Not because I have low self esteem or whatever but because it makes me feel happy when I try on different shades and textures on myself. I love to see the transformation I have.
I prefer my postcards not in an envelope.
Here are my favorite things.
cute, girly images
teddy bears / Duffy the Disney bear
landmarks and scenery
tea (I am loving peppermint as of late)
colors: green, pink, brown in that order
lace and ribbons
fruity candy, chewy candy
*New to ATC. I am open to receiving any type. I recently purchased a pack of blank ATCs from the craft store. I think this is going to be my new addiction. It's super fun creating them :)
Lastly, things I dislike are:
*I'm allergic to coffee/caffeine!
I promise to send all my swaps before or on the deadline. I am not 100% sure how reliable Canada Post is considering they sent back 3 of my postcards for postcrossing thinking that my return address is the receiving address... That's just part of my problem with the post.
Anyway, please message me if you haven't received your item 2 weeks after the deadline before giving me a bad rating. If it gets lost in the mail, I promise to make it up to you!!
I will also promise to rate you as soon as I get your package!! I almost got an expired postcard on postcrossing because my partner did not log my card. I even sent a replacement the day before they logged mine... I know how it feels so I won't do that to you. And I apologize if I did - it was due to my move so please let me know if I still haven't logged yours!
Thank you, and happy swapping :)
