About Me

Hello there! My name's Lina, 23 yo! I live in Russia and was born here but I have travelled quite a lot. Now travelling is especially difficult... So I decided I could try out something new that can help me feel connected with the world! ✨~

I'm really fond of crafting and decorating stuff and I feel happy making cute things for people :3

I LOVE drinking tea and soda, would do this all day long, watching everything u are able to watch (anime, movies, Youtube and so), listening to music and learning & trying out new things! I also do sports, stretching and sometimes meditation. I am a 23yo retired lady who would love to live somewhere on a farm with her animals close to nature. I have a baby cat Smoky who is my best friend as well! She's a fluffy bun, always ready to play catch with a fabric ball.

My every day routine includes make up and skin care, I find it fun and useful for my mood and psyche too~ I'm interested in asian culture and love nordic Europe, I also can speak English (evidently..), Deutsch and Russian (also evidently)! I would like to learn Korean and Japanese as well, but have no chance now.

PS. u can find a link to my old tumblr above, it's here for u to get the gist of my //aesthetics//! 😌

Favorite Music

I am a big fan of music! There are several genres which I like the most but I'm always happy to find new music whatever the genre is. So you can recommend me music you want to share~

Some of what I find cool NOW or mb forever who knows:

  • keshi 😤🔥😍💜
  • conan gray
  • melanie martinez
  • chase atlantic
  • the neighbourhood
  • eric nam
  • pale waves


Here are some random things I am keen on (to be honest I'm not picky at all - swaps and mail are for fun!)

  • ~ cute animals and characters
  • ~ sweet and pastel colours and patterns
  • ~ unusual and local stuff (like stickers or postcards of the place, local candies)
  • ~ t e a and treats
  • ~ anime
  • ~ pretty memo sheets and labels
  • ~ hand made trinkets and crafting
  • ~ embroidery and sewing
  • ~ origami
  • ~ photos
  • ~ small goodie bags
  • ~ crafting paper
  • ~ face masks and other skincare goods
  • ~ nature (seas, forests, trees, plants, wild flowers, mountains, paths, rivers, meadows...)
  • ~ manhua and manga (BL especially)
  • ~ witchcraft aesthetics
  • ~ foodie
  • ~ asian culture (architecture, nature, history, media and pop culture, kpop)
  • ~ myths and folklore
  • ~ nice socks

Fav TV

Although I LOVE anime, manga, all that is related to Asian culture, I don't collect or appreciate any anime themed stuff like stickers / posters / cards with characters and other. It doesn't mean I would trash it whenever I get them but I rly just have no use of them...

10 out of 10 rated anime imho, of course:

  • Haikyuu!!
  • Shiguang Dailiren
  • Shingeki no Kyojin

...and 9 out of 10 also:

  • Doukyuusei (Movie)
  • Howl no Ugoku Shiro
  • Lovely★Complex
  • SK∞
  • Sword Art Online

I also have a bunch of watched series and movies. I can't say if there are favourites among them, still I usually watch drama, thrillers, crime, horror or mystery. It can be action or fantasy sometimes! Recently seen and loved: The Haunting of Bly Manor, The Society, MINDHUNTER, Anne with an E, In the Flesh, Hemlock Grove, The Mentalist, Game of Thrones.

Worth to mention or not - I like gay themed stories🌈

Drinks & Treats

I don't have allergies as far as I know 😂 But I still think you need to know my preferences and dislikes.

💛T E A💜

I'm absolutely a tea-person, I can't stand coffee in its pure form. I like flavoured tea as well as herbal tea! Different kinds of tea! Fav Flavours are spicy, cinnamon, toffy, chocolate/vanilla/any dessert flavoured, ginger AND fresh tastes like orange, peppermint, herbs, lemon balm, fruit or berries will do~ Teas, swap partners sent me, which I LOVED: twinings infuso; jumbo Honingbos & Perziksmaak.

Speaking of treats and sweets, I live in Russia and I DONT like most of local sweets 😤 Moreover, I'm really into cute and interesting packaging, which can be decisive for me. I like chocolate, especially with nuts or jellies. Any chocolate will do but milk one is on top~

Other "❤️": nuts, coconut, matcha, (salted) caramel, mint, nougat, berries and fruit, cookies, honey, peach~


  • plain teas (like plain green or black w/o any scent or taste)
  • candied/dried fruit and raisins
  • liquorice
  • marzipan
  • liqueur candies

My Primary Dislikes

vintage & foreign bank notes or coins / coffee (unless it's something like chocolate frappe flavoured things) / smoke & cigarette taste / tourist stuff / homophobia / intolerance


I have a little experience in penpaling and swapping so far. I'm a newbie~ So please be patient! ❤️🐮

Comment: Thank you for sharing your songs. I have never been listening to Russian songs (beside on the wedding of my Russian friend) and it was cool to explore new songs in another language.
