    I like to be surprised! I like jewelry, scarves, nice lotions, anything along those lines. Also, nice teas, loose or tea bag.

    Or dislikes? I have more candles than I can use in a lifetime, so I don't dislike them but I don't want any more! Also not really into knick-knacks and that type of stuff.

    Favorite Type of Food (i.e. Italian, Mexican, McDonald’s, Burger King, etc) :

    Not fast food or chain restaurants but pretty much everything else as long as it is vegetarian/vegan.

    Favorite Candy (things that won’t melt or go bad in mail) :

    I'm trying to eat mostly clean and will have enough holiday candy to deal with as it is, so I don't want candy.

    Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc):

    I am allergic to perfume. In body lotions and bath stuff etc. I like coconut, vanilla, chocolate - those rich warm scents. Also natural type scents.


    Favorite Hobby (i.e. Scrap booking, Photography, things you collect, etc):

    I like photography and am attempting to get started with scrapbooking but my major hobbies are writing/reading/music.

    Favorite books or types (romance, true store, mystery or just one you would like):

    Literature/novels, particularly post-colonial topics. I think it is the recent Giller Prize novel that I am interested in... Half-Breed Blues. That's the kind of book.

    Favorite animal:

    Lions.

    Favorite movies or types (romance, comedy or just a DVD/VHS you would like):

    Drama or comedy. I have a VHS player but don't really want new VHS tapes - DVDs are better. Ones I would like that I don't have - hmmm. She's Gotta Have It, Bamboozled, White Man's Burden.

    Favorite Color :

    In general, red and yellow. To wear, red, jewel tones, chocolate brown, fuschia.

    Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like:

    Opera, classical, jazz, R & B, fusion. I mostly download my music these days. I would really love to get Esperanza Spalding on CD though.

    Do you collect anything?

    Only stuff when I travel.

    Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need?

    I think the above have probably covered it! I'm interested in this Kinky Curly hair stuff everyone talks about, though!

    Do you wear accessories/jewelry?

    All the time!

    Anything else you would like your SS to know about you:

    I think the above has covered it. I like surprises - anything unique from your area or interests is super-cool! My life is all about work and family right now and I struggle to take time for me so anything that allows me that is awesome!

    Are you allergic to anything or have anything in particular you prefer NOT to get (like food, hair stuff, lotion, etc):

    Allergies: coffee (not really an allergy, but don't drink it because it gives me horrible migraines)
    As I said, perfume /really heavily scented things (a normal level of scent is fine for lotions and bath items and the like)
    Lactose intolerant
    Prefer no candy/junk food
    Peanut allergy
    Animal allergy (but not like anyone is mailing me a kitten!)
    Nickel allergy (for jewellry, it must be silver (or gold but obviously not relevant here), not just hypoallergenic.)
    Get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me. -Muhammad Ali

    I like to be surprised! I like earings, love stuff from Bath and Body Works.Candles are good, nail polish, hair stuff of course lol.

    Or dislikes? Not a fan of flowery scents.

    Favorite Type of Food (i.e. Italian, Mexican, McDonald’s, Burger King, etc) :

    I love fast food stuff but don't have it often. Any local stuff would be awesome!! I would be so happy if someone could send me some Kraft Dinner or some All Dressed Ruffle chips.

    Favorite Candy (things that won’t melt or go bad in mail) :
    Again local stuff is nice. I really miss Coffee Crisp chocolate bars.

    Favorite Scent (i.e. Fruity, Vanilla, Flowery, etc):

    I LOVE Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar....especially the body spray! Coffee smells, mango, orange, and Dream Angel Heavenly from Victoria Secret.


    Favorite Hobby (i.e. Scrap booking, Photography, things you collect, etc):

    Don't really have a hobby as I don't have a lot of time. I do though do a lot of reading when I commute to work and listen to music.

    Favorite books or types (romance, true store, mystery or just one you would like):

    I love horror - Steven King-ish type or mystery like DaVinci Code.

    Favorite animal:

    I love cats

    Favorite movies or types (romance, comedy or just a DVD/VHS you would like):

    Love horror/thriller/mystery and action

    Favorite Color :

    Pink is becoming my favourite colour.....deep/bright pinks. Purple, blue, turquoise

    Favorite Music Artist/Type or a CD you would like:

    Love Elbow and Biffy Clyro

    Do you collect anything?

    cute socks or mittens! (have almost 2 month supply HA!)

    Is there anything (not expensive) you want or need?
    Could do with a new winter scarf, the claw hair clips so I can pull my hair back at work (the smallish ones...), or hair elastics (I like the goody ones).


    Do you wear accessories/jewelry?

    Ya....more earrings.

    Anything else you would like your SS to know about you:

    Originally from Canada and now living in the UK so anything from Canada I would love!!

    Are you allergic to anything or have anything in particular you prefer NOT to get (like food, hair stuff, lotion, etc):

    Allergy free

    I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

    I don't want to ask my specific curly if they have pets, because obviously, that will give away the surprise, but can I ask a general question here:

    Do any curlies involved in the swap have pets, specifically dogs? And if so, would you be ok with treats for them as a little extra present?
  • spring1onuspring1onu Posts: 16,528Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
    Well, I'm pretty sure you know my answers are yes and yes. :D

    I don't have any doggies but where I live there are two doggies, so if I'm your curly swap feel free to send treats :)

    LA I'm sorry if I was out of line.
    I just thought since no one knows who your curly is, it was okay to comment :angel12:

    i dont have doggies, but i know two doggies who love treats.
  • kaybkayb Posts: 5,054Registered Users
    I have no doggies either but if I did and my curly sent me treats I would think that was very thought and for sure would appreciate it.

    Good luck, L/A.
    I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

    to the general giftees: are your ears pierced, do you wear earrings?

    This might help some of us! Please respond if you can. Some have already stated, but I know I forgot! :oops:

    My ears are pierced, but I rarely wear anything besides small studs. ETA: I get itchy with non-silver or gold jewelry.
  • SarcasmIsBeautySarcasmIsBeauty Posts: 5,640Registered Users
    I have my ears pierced but I don't wear earrings because I have a nickel allergy and I'm too lazy to find nickel free jewelry. If I wasn't lazy I'd wear studs.
    Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

    My ears are pierced and I wear 7 earrings every day. Mostly silver hoops with various dangly things. But I'll wear anything.

    Ears are pierced, prefer silver toned jewelry and can be a little itchy if the earrings are super cheap. :D:lol:

    I may have put it in my likes post, but my ear piercings have closed because I don't wear earrings. My hair either covers them or gets caught in them.
