About Me

I'm an introverted, very quiet person. Indoorsy, catlover, couch potato. I love whatever I consider beautiful, and I like to be surronded by pretty things.

I like to write letters about books, everyday life, cultural differences and local traditions, my dolls, anything I'm interested in.

I am obsessed with cats, dolls, whatever series I'm watching at the moment, history of costume, and pretty much everything I've listed in hobbies and interests (read further)

Please don't send me anything that doesn't fit in an envelope (this is great for those in a budget, like me). Argentina's mail system doesn't have a regard for gifts, so everything is treated as a purchase and lots of taxes are added, which I can't afford at the moment.

So, until things get better, thank you but no, thank you.

If we're partners for a profile related swap, please choose things that can be fitted in an envelope. Otherwise, I won't be able to receive it.

Thank you :)


dolls (as in: change their outfits, make new clothes for them and other people's dolls, taking pictures of them, spend hours in pinterest, instagram, facbook groups, and the internet in general watching dolly pictures and checking on news, attend to dolly meetings, fantasize with future dolls, etc)

Comment: Hi Fiorella, I'm very sorry, I must have overlooked rating you for this swap! Of course what you sent was great and as detailed as usually :) I was just going through the last of my swaps to put books on my to read read now and saw I missed rating you. So...better late than never. The biography you mentioned sounds quite interesting, I wanted to read more biograhies anyway, this one sounds like a nice one to read, especially since I also don't know much about him :) Have a wonderful day and happy reading!

Comment: Don't you just hate it when 'real life' gets in the way of important things like reading? :) I cannot believe you watched the WHOLE season of Good Omens already! I kept getting interrupted in the first episode! :(
Response: Well, in this case life got in the way with more reading, which I didn't hate, even though it took time from my TBR books. And yes, not only I already watched the whole season, but I think I'll reawatch it again soon. This very night, probably. The "perks" of being a single lady with little to none social life xP

ESG: Spread some Art! profile decoration

Hello, how are you? I have so many favorite art works from different periods and different artists. It's really hard for me to choose only one... One of my all time favorites is gorgeous and naughty painting by Jean-Honoré Fragonard. It's called The Swing. I actually ha an honor to see this work few times at Wallace Collection in London. For me it presents the true spirit of Rococo period.

:) enjoy!

(So...I couldn't get the original artwork I wanted to upload to work, so I'm going with Alex Grey's "kissing"...he's another psychedelic artist who I absolutely ADORE! But, you should also check out the art I originally wanted to share. She can be found on Instagram @smallmoon_ and is an amazing young artist whose trippy work gets me right in the feels.)
