About Me


my name's ieva, i am 21 y/o. my pronouns are she/her and i am aro!

i am currently in uni, studying veterinary medicine! i'm in my 3rd year at the moment.

I adore books, movies, travelling, kayaking, all animals (especially marine life). i have a lil Siberian laika, who simultaneously is the cutest and the most annoying baby.

i am a procrastinator, but i decided that this school year i'm gonna make it my bitch and rock it. i love vintage items, journaling, postcards and history as well. i planned to study archeology, but as you can see, that did not happen lol. i can re-tell some amazing stories that my grandparents have told me and what my parents actually lived through in the soviet era. i live like a 10 minute ride from the place where bbc filmed 'chernobyl' (the apartament square).

i love museums and art. my favorite "classical" artists are dรผrer, klimt, van gogh and monet and picasso.

i love music as well! i listen to lots of genres and am definitely not limited to pop or like rock. my favorite performers are twenty one pilots, pvris, of monsters and men, ry x, cigarettes after sex, mamamoo, bts, halsey, angรจle, lauv, troye sivan etc. i can also play 3 instruments!

i am a avid concert goer and it's one of the things that help me survive uni tbh.

i currently speak 3 languages fluently - lithuanian, english and german. i can read in swedish and korean as well. i understand russian too:) (i like dabbling in languages). i will also be learning french this semester!

i like pressing flowers and adding them to packages/letters to my friends.

i love humor and memes are my favorite.

Favorite Books

I've read quite a few books in my short lifetime. Lots of different genres as well. I used to prefer fantasy novels, but atm i'm into fiction and crime solving stories! I never like the cliche stories mostly because they're very predictable. my current favorite book is 'the ocean by the end of the lane' by neil gaiman. :)

book recommendations are always welcome, just please write me why should i read that particular book and if you've re-read it!!

Favorite Movies

I love watching different genres of movies! I adore studio ghibli, disney as well! Lately i've been watching a lot of crime fighting tv series and movies, but don't know yet if it's my favorite genre. My all-time-favorite movie at the moment is 'the secret life of walter mitty'!

Favorite Crafts

I love journaling and have an instagram account dedicated to my kpop journal lol (it's more of an art journal, not gonna lie. i like layering and vintage paper so much! Music sheets and glassine paper are still my favorite supplies. Paper bags are reused in this household - whether for journaling or something else entirely.

I also love pressed flowers (and i love adding them to spreads or adding as a wrapping decoration) which i press myself!!

i adore washi tape and am probably addicted to stickers. i try to support small businesses since it's usually younger people who are trying to find their footing in the world.

I love vintage items, but especially i adore post stamps and stamps in general. my dad used to collect post stamps and i feel like that hobby got accidentally passed to me. i use both stamps in spreads and while writing letters!

Recently, I started to get into junk journaling as well - i am making my own insert out of vintage items (music sheets, botanic booklets, old german books, glassine paper are my favorites to add). I usually don't have anything that exciting happening in my life, but when i do, i journal about it so i can remember it later.

What I like

  • minimalism
  • vintage items (old newspapers, post stamps, tickets)
  • botanic items
  • seaside/ocean related items (pictures of the ocean, the seaside, shells, etc)
  • vintage bird, plant ephemera
  • i like neutral colors, but a pop of blue, yellow or green is gorgeous as well (neutrals= browns, greys, beiges, etc.)
  • studio ghibli
  • disney (mulan is my favorite)
  • harry potter
  • history
  • animals (my favorites are llamas, elephants and sharks)
  • scented candles
  • anything handmade (made with love!!!!)
  • nature (pictures of national parks or just parks, mountains, lakes, canyons, etc)
  • kayak, bicycle, ship images
  • piano/violin music sheets
  • music, tv show, movie, book recomendations
  • layered spreads, tip ins
  • interesting paper (vintage, grind, onion skin, lined, old receipts, old invoices)
  • maps (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
  • botanic stickers (!!!!!!!)
  • fruit (especially orange and tangerine) stickers
  • clasikky (i just love all their products ngl)
  • inspiring quotes or just motivation
  • calligraphy
  • pressed flowers, dried moss or leaves (basically pressed plants)
  • sweet, somewhat natural scents (not too pungent, i have a sensitive nose) example: cinnamon, whipped cream, sugar cookies, apple pie, orange, pear.

                   | not allergic to anything |

My dislikes

  • loose glitter
  • neon colors
  • anything holographic
  • if i'm honest anything that's really glittery (i don't mind glitter in small doses, but if it's over the top i find it untasteful (sorry))
  • hello kitty, rilakkuma or any small stickers (i can't use them in spreads since i like minimalism. I am also pretending to be an adult)
  • the taste of ginger, liquorice, rosemary (the smell as well)
