About Me

Hello there! :-)

My name is Roxanne. I live in a small town near Utrecht with my boyfriend Pel, our son Marcel (2015) and our cat Bella.

I am a stay at home mom and currently pregnant with baby #2 (due April 3, 2018). I am a blogger, but take on some freelance writing jobs every now and then.

In summer I love hanging out with friends. I love going to festivals and concerts, shopping or swimming for example. But I also love spending time on my own. This time I use to write letters, blogs, read books and listen to music.


I always send my swaps in time! I try not to sign up for more swaps than I can handle, which comes down to around five swaps at the time max.

If I owe you something, please let me know and I will re-send. If you owe me something, I will try to contact you first before giving you a 1. I know that mail gets delayed or even lost sometimes, it sucks, but that's how it is.

So, basically what I am trying to say is... Let's communicate and I bet we will find a way to make things right. And above all: Happy Swapping! :-)

Favorite Television

Atypical, Big Bang Theory, Everwood, Friends, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, Grey's Anatomy, House, How I Met Your Mother, New Girl, Orange is the new black, Please Like Me and Rookie Blue.

Besides those series I also enjoy watching Air Crash Investigation and the occasional real life drama series on TLC or MTV!

Favorite Movies

American Beauty, Big Fish, City of Angels, Crash, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Girl Interrupted, Habla con Ella, He's just not that into you, Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain, Little Miss Sunshine, Lord of the Rings, My sister's keeper, New Moon, Pirates of the Caribbean, Remember Me, Save the last dance, Shall we dance, Shrek, Step up, The Mexican, The Motorcycle Diaries, The Notebook, Twilight, Where the heart is, 10 things I hate about you.

Favorite Books

I will read anything that sounds interesting! At the moment I love reading series, because I am a fan of long stories. My favorite series right now are the books from Vampire Academy and Bloodlines! Other than UF/paranormal series I also enjoy chick lit, young adult, memoirs, thrillers and other novels.

Things I love

I'm crazy about: Beaches, big cities, blogging, blue skies, books, cats, chocolate, colors, concerts, cute stationary, dancing, diet coke, dreams, FC Utrecht, football (soccer), friends, full moon, ice cream, Instagram, Jack Vettriano, letters, magazines, mail, music, musicals, nighttime, postcards, random thoughts, reading, risotto, Rock Band (the game), sarcasm, shopping, singing, Singstar, spring, summer, sunshine, sushi, theatre, traveling, washi / masking tape, writing. ♥

Favorite Music

I listen to all kinds of music. Mostly to rock music, but also pop, R&B, hiphop, reggaeton, dance, latin... It really depends on the place, time and the mood I am in.


  • Washi/masking tape
  • Stickers
  • Anything Kawaii
  • Letter sets / pads
  • Rubber stamps
  • Pressed pennies / coins
  • Stuff for Project Life / journaling
  • Anything colorful
  • I am a sucker for nail polish, even though I'm not that girly
  • Magazines from your country (esp. in English)
  • Colorful socks (size EU40/ US 8 1/2)
  • Sweets or toys for my cat

Please DON'T send me any FB's etc as I don't swap them and I would not want them to be stuck at my house!

Comment: Thank you for sharing. That was an interesting list. I hope you achieve all of your goals.
Comment: Wow! Such a lovely log! I especially love that you took the time to hand write it all :) and your ratings too - that's awesome! It seems like we have very similar taste in books, so I think I'm going to have to check at least a few of those out!
Response: Glad you liked it! :-)
Comment: I received your nice letter and really really loved reading it, I spent a nice time reading it! I'll send you a message as an answer but I really don't have time to write a letter back as I already have many long letters to write, hope you can understand.
Response: That's alright dear! :-) No worries! Glad it arrived safely.

Comment: Thank you for the penny and the postcard from your town. I love seeing where other people live. Best wishes for the arrival of your son and I hope that you enjoy your time at home with him.
Comment: Roxanne! Thanks so much for your letter. I really enjoyed reading- I saved it for when no one was around so I could read it un-disurbed! Thanks for the extra things! I will definitely put them to good use! Hugs. Congratulations!! And I will for sure write back!

Comment: I love the penny! Thanks for the postcard of Utrecht!
Comment: this swap was great and so was your comment
Comment: Oh ... are you really having surgery? If so, I wish you the best of luck! That certainly is a reason not to join a swap!
Response: Yes I have really had surgery on April 24... I am slowly getting better now, but it's definitely a reason not to join too many swaps!
Comment: That was a terrifying tattoo :)
Comment: Mr. FluffyBumberkins is so excited that you enjoyed his tattoo tribute! As a reward for your comment, he would like to offer you a (slightly used) vole. xo
Comment: Hope your surgery went well! I know a few people who have had the same surgery or one similar to it! Wishing you a speedy recovery!
Comment: I hope you enjoyed this swap as much as I did.
