About Me

I'm Emily I'm a Spanish and French teacher in Scotland and I love love love stationery - especially papers, washi and stickers. I love penpalling and trying new things and love finding out about new cultures. I love Greek mythology too! I adore llamas/alpacas and cacti and anything stereotypically "Spanish" as I love to decorate my classroom with them! I really like bright colours and fun patterns as I'm sure you'll see on my instagram accounts below! I love feminism and feminist items and quotes.

On Instagram I'm either @emilys_envelopes or @languagesandllamas if you want to see what I'm interested in!


  • My favourite colours are bright or pastel colours in general but I also love the colour yellow as it's such a happy colour.

  • HALLOWEEN themed things (but not horror!)

  • I love all animals but my absolute favourites are llamas and alpacas or schnauzers, cats, foxes, elephants, ladybirds....

  • My favourite scents are fruity and/or sweet (tropical/pistachio/almond/something unusual) and literally anything Lush makes ever!!

  • Favourite cuisines are Asian (Chinese, Indian, Japanese...) and Mexican - I love big flavours!

  • Frida Kahlo

  • Russian doll anything!

  • Coffee or hot chocolate sachets - fun flavours even better!


Last year, I set myself a challenge to try something new every day of the year. It was an amazing experience and opened my eyes to many new hobbies/potential interests. I would love if, when sending me a swap, you could include a suggestion of something new to try (easy like a new food or more challenging) or tell me the best new experience you've had.

Otherwise, my hobbies include...

  • Penpalling
  • Envelope Art
  • Cooking new recipes
  • Language learning (especially French and Spanish)
  • Baking
  • Reading (both fiction and non-fiction)
  • Learning about Greek mythology
  • Travelling and learning about new cultures


  • Bright and colourful
  • Pastel colours
  • Galaxy/stars and moons/celestial print
  • Cacti/succulents
  • Mexican/Day of the Dead
  • Monstera/leaf print
  • Geometric/80s
  • Bright, happy prints
  • Dark and witchy
  • Bugs
  • Autumn, cosy, vintage...


I really love trying new snacks and drinks!

Favourites/most desired would include:

  • Anything hazelnut/almond/pistachio flavoured
  • Chocolate or sweets
  • Crisps (especially spicy flavours!)
  • Jalapeño anything
  • Coffee (especially flavoured!)
  • Rhubarb flavoured anything
  • Things I can't get in the UK!!


I would prefer not to receive (but don't want to demand!!)

  • Fruit or herbal tea
  • Butterflies
  • Plain washi
  • Sports themed anything
  • Feather shaped items

I don’t love postcards with photographs on them - I prefer illustrations or quotes ideally :)

I like to collect...

  • Washi tape
  • Used postage stamps - especially in a theme like space or animals or another theme.
  • Stickers - recently discovered washi stickers and am in love!
  • Sheet masks or hair masks
  • Metal dies
  • Recipes
  • Illustrated (non-touristy) postcards
  • Greetings cards
  • Writing sets
  • Flavoured coffee
  • Magnetic bookmarks
  • Fairy lights
  • Self care magazines

  • Candles/wax melts
  • Flavoured gin
  • Vintage books and magazines or pages
  • Cotton face masks in fun patterns for work (teacher life!)
