About Me

Hello! My name is Karen and I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm a university student majoring in Criminal Justice. I love receiving pretty stuff in the mail. I'm currently obsessed with; snail-mailing, skincare and makeup! My favorite color is yellow. I normally don't like bright colors but somehow I find yellow a very positive and cheerful color. I'm not the most bubbly person but I do believe by wearing something bright, will help brighten your day. I also enjoy the smell of the rain and the beauty of nature. Winter is my favorite season, I get to burn my favorite candles and cozy up with cute warm sweaters.

I Have also been obsessing with baths. There is nothing more relaxing than filling up my tub with hot water, while running my favorite bubble bar. I like to go extra in my baths, I LOVE using bath salts, bath oils, bath bombs and anything related towards creating a fun bath. As a full time student and full time employee, it's very important for me to dedicate some of my free time for self-care.♥️

Beauty Swaps


Skincare is my number one priority. I mostly use anything that provides an intense hydration for my dry sensitive skin. I don't like to use products with a strong fragrance on my face (fragrance-free preferably). Here is a short list of products that I use in my day/night skincare routine:

  • facial moisturizers
  • serums for hydration or anti-aging
  • toners
  • essences
  • eye creams
  • sheet masks & peel of masks
  • facial mists


I'm very basic when it comes to makeup. I don't use bronzers, contouring products, and crazy lip colors. Please do not send me dollar store makeup, lip gloss, blush, single eye shadows, lip tint and anything cream formulated. Here is a short list of products that I would prefer:

  • brow liners in dark brown
  • mascara
  • foundation powder in light medium
  • liquid lipsticks
  • lip balms
  • nail polishes
  • make up brushes of any kind

Comment: Thanks so much for the nice card and for sharing your thoughts about Valentine's day. I never really got into rom-coms and romance books, but am slowly branching out a bit more to romance books. And even if I'm not a huge fan of love songs, I do enjoy Taylor Swift's music, though not as familiar with it as I was when my daughter was younger and listening to the music too. Happy valentine's day!
Response: Your welcome, have a lovely Valentine’s Day!♥️

Comment: Thank you for sending, I am trying to wait to open them all until Christmas Eve. My daughters want to open them while we watch Hallmark movies.
LavenderSprinkles rated for Sharing Kindness swap! on Jul 17, 2020
Comment: First off, your letter spoke to my heart. I am going through something very similar right now. I can definitely relate to every word and it felt strange reading it. It is because those words hit close to home. About yellow-several horrific events in my life took place pertaining to that color. I always associate that color with bad luck now. Every time, I give it a chance and try to wear that color bad luck strikes again. I love the bangles you sent me they are so great for the summer! I gave my daughter the lip gloss she likes it! The earrings are adorable! I can surely use the scarf accessory as well! I truly enjoyed your swap and the letter was amazing! Exactly the words I needed to hear today! Really hope and pray things will be good for both of us! If you ever want to be pen pals feel free to drop me a line or an inbox message. I always like to hear what is on people's minds. Thank you again for a very memorable swap! Happy swapping and have an amazing weekend!
