About Me

Hey!

I'm currently in school for business majoring in Human Resources.

I love to spend time bullet journaling to keep myself organized, listening to music, spending time with my 2 dogs and any other animals I can find. My favourite colour is teal/turquoise blueish green (the colour of the lakes and rivers in the mountains). I have a few plants that I am learning to take care of as well! My favourite plant I have is a pickle plant (Delosperma echinatum) which feels super cool because of its soft spikes. I would love to learn more about you in the letters you send!

Find me on Instagram... @ yours.in.letters

Favourite Tea

I love drinking both warm and cold teas. Green tea or something herbal with honey is my favourite to make at home and I love getting chai lattes and London fogs when I'm out since I can't seem to master how to make them at home quite yet. I love to make matcha lattes as well! There's nothing better than reading a good book with a cup of tea.

Favorite Books

You can probably find me reading most of the time! I read any genre except for horror since I don't like scary things. I'm usually reading contemporary, dystopian and fantasy novels. I'm currently reading the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I love reading books with a little bit of romance, but that may be my downfall as it makes these ridiculous standards in my head (anyone relate?) lol.

Favourite Food

I love to cook and bake but am much better at baking (I would love to share recipes!). I prefer savoury foods to sweets, especially if they're crunchy like chips! I'm not the most adventurous eater but when I'm with others sometimes they convince me. I do not eat any animals from the water (fish, crabs, shrimp, etc.). I will eat sushi but only vegetarian ones like cucumber maki (which is my favourite).

Traveling

I love to travel and explore new places. I enjoy going to the mountains to camp, downhill ski, hike and swim in the lakes (depending on the season haha).

Here are all of the Countries I have visited so far (4% of the world):

  • Austria

  • Canada

  • Denmark

  • France

  • Italy

  • Monaco

  • Slovenia

  • Sweden

  • Switzerland

  • The Netherlands

  • United States of America

Washi

I am slowly growing my collection of washi tapes and love to share them in my swaps! Im looking to get a grid washi tape since they are perfect for layering, but I've had no luck finding them in-store. If you know of any small businesses that have nice washi, let me know! On washi I love...

  • Floral

  • Interesting patterns

  • Cute patterns

  • Pastel

  • Gold foil accents

  • Art

I'm not a huge fan of the super skinny washi since I don't usually know what to do with it since it's so small.

Post Cards

I love getting post cards from around the world! I love ones that are from cool places and destinations. My goal is to have a post card from every country in the world! Even if a swap says to send a naked postcard, I would love to receive something written on it.

Languages

I am fluent in both French and English. I took French immersion in school for 13 years! I am trying to learn Mandarin currently. If you know any other languages, feel free to write them in swaps, but make sure you include a translation! If anyone wants to practise their French or English that would be wonderful!

Likes

I love:

  • Flowers

  • Tea

  • Washi tape

  • Note pads

  • Stickers

  • Happy colours

  • Kawaii items

  • Sparkles and glittery things

  • Fruit

  • Candy and chocolate

  • Vintage

  • Unique paper

Comment: Thanks for such different items! Yes, I think yours has been the closest swap too. I moved from Toronto, and have enjoyed adjusting to farm life these past few years.

Comment: Hi Jayla. Thank you for the beautiful postcard. I was born in Alberta but we moved when I was very young so I honestly don't know a lot. Planning to travel Canada more often post-pandemic though. =)

Comment: Thank you for this great review of what you read. I've picked up and put down American Dirt about 4 times in various book stores, but wasn't sure I'd like it. I think I'll give it a try now! Happy Reading.

Comment: I enjoyed your letter! Great penmanship. The light blue marker was a little tricky to read, but I agree with you that light ink first and then crossed with dark is more legible.

Hello, Happy easter

misscorina on Apr 4, 2021:

Hoi!

I'm Corina from the Netherlands, married to Maikel. We have a 3 months old bird named Blitz (he is a kakariki). My hobbies are swapping on Swap-Bot, collecting Dutch Royal family memorabilia and postcards. I'm also a World War II reenactor for about 12 years unfortunately we haven't had an event for over 1 1/2 year due to Covid-19. What I like about Swap-bot is meeting new people and the variety of swaps.
