About Me

I love all things Christmas, kawaii, pink, girly, collecting postcards, souvenirs, and reading books. I'm passionate about baking & cooking, travel, shopping, art, Japanese culture, and music.

I'm bilingual in English and French. I'm currently studying Norwegian, Finnish, & Swedish!

Dislikes: Please note, that I'm a non-smoker.I have no problem with smokers, but if you are smoking and writing postcards in your home sadly postcards arrive with the scent and I have to discard those cards. :(

If you don't receive from me, please contact me first and offer me the opportunity to re-send rather than bashing me. Thanks to all of you that have been awesome.

*Please note that I always send extras with my swaps because I love to share with the amazing people here. :-)

I'm happy with all tourist cards-I'm not picky, it's just wonderful to "travel" through a postcard. =) . I also prefer to be sent cards that are nice and not torn from a postcard book. I prefer that flag and map postcards are sent blank in an envelope.

Snacks

I love both sweet and savory snacks!

I dislike snacks that are spicy. I don't eat any sort of gummy candies.I have an allergy to beets- so please don't send any snacks with them.

I love anything with chocolate, strawberries, raspberries. I also love baked goods and pastries!

I'm very open-minded, so be creative and send me some of your favorites. When I travel , I'm always happy to buy snacks "blindly" that look interesting. Please send me snacks that are "non-American". Donuts and cupcakes are great examples. I hope to learn about your country by trying out snacks that are typical there.

Recipes/Food Preferences

I'm always happy to try out new recipes from other countries. I typically don't enjoy eating foods that too spicy. I eat all meats with the exception of lamb and rabbit. Please keep in mind that I'm allergic to beets, so I don't cook anything with beets in my household. I'm completely open to everything else. Feel free to ask me if you're not sure. :-)

Drink Preferences

I enjoy all sorts of wellness teas, herbal tea, green teas, white, and red teas. I'm not particularly fond of black tea but I'm open to plenty of interesting flavors ! Please note that I'm highly allergic to beets.
