Are you looking for a penpal? III

Here' some of the penpal ads I received recently, if you're looking for a new friend, this might be your chance to find it ☺! 

"Hi everyone! My name is Brendha, I'm 19 and I'm a law student. I want a penpal from anywhere and doesn't matter with your letters are cute or not, I'm more interested in what is written, but please,+16 at least; any gender. I'm not interested in big swaps because the brazilian mail is a headache sometimes, but swap little things of course I do smoothly. By the way, I'm brazilian! I would love swap postcards, I'm planning to assemble a collection of them! I reply as soon as the letter arrives, i just won't do this in special cases, like postal strike and exams."
Kik: kontrollverlust;

"Hi, my name is Alex..a 44 year old woman from the UK...really love to exchange snail mail, love handmade envelopes, hand made things, paper, poetry, dogs, positivity, baking and sooo much more...would love to exchange snail mail with you, let's make happy mail days "

"Hi! My name is Mira and I'm from Finland. I'm 17 years old childcare student. I love snail mailing, and I miss getting special mail. I love music, tv series, movies, friends, crafting, baking and magazines. Send me an email if you want to know more!"

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today I'm turning 23, which for various reasons, makes me feel rather weird. It could be because I look like I'm 15, or because I feel like I'm 37, or just because who does enjoy growing up after all?

Anyway, if you know me at all, you'd know I'm not the kind of person to celebrate this happening, so I don't really have any interesting plans for the night, besides maybe baking a cherry pie and eating it!
I don't even know why I'm writing a blog post about it, really. So yeah..!

Enjoy your day, guys! I'll be virtually sending pie slices to ya'll :)

A little birdy told me

Lately, I've been finding myself using cheap white labels to make my own stickers to somehow decorate my letters. I did like the designs but I wasn't happy with the flimsy quality of them, so I decided to have some professionally printed.
I've been really liking using brown envelopes without too many decorations, and those stickers came really in hand to add a little cute touch to them ☺
I had to print quite a few of them, and I don't think I would ever be able to use them all by myself, so I'm selling some on Etsy.
If you like them and want to spice up your letters with a cheeky sticker, you can buy them here.

Hello everyone!
February passed by so fast it's crazy.. Here's what I've been busy doing:

Reading: still 1Q84 by Murakami. I've just started the second book of the trilogy and finally the plot is unraveling and I'm loving it even more;
Watching: the Walking Dead, Girls, and I've recently seen the pilot a few new series but it's still to early to decided whether I like them or not.
Eating: kiwifruits, lots of these!
Drinking: organic green tea;
Using: brown paper envelopes again, which I'm liking to leave quite simple without going overboard with decorations. I feel like just a nice strip of washi tape compliments them better, and I really hope my penpals are enjoying this new "style" as well.
Recently: dyed my hair with henna from Lush. I'm not too sure how I like them but it'll do;
Wearing: my hair up. It's at this stage where they're not short nor long, and I really dislike it. So instead of loosing my mind with it, I'm just throwing it in a awkward length ponytail or bun and I'm pretty much done with it.
Listening: I've been listening to literally 5 songs on endless repeat this month, and one of them I particularly like is Cut Your Teeth by Kyla La Grange (Kygo Remix);
Trying: to focus on one thing at a time, complete it, and then move on to the next one. (Am I succeeding? Nope. Not really.);
Purchased: nothing noteworthy, I'm limiting myself to buying only the necessary to save up for a couple projects;
Working: out! I've been going to the gym 4 days a week and I'm loving it.

I'm curious, what have you been up to lately? ☺
Have a nice day,
