A big THANK YOU to my swap partners who put care in their enveloppe & packages.

I had such a huge chance to swap with beautiful swap partners and I was so so grateful to receive some letters and package on which I could see how much time was spent to prepare and decorate.

❀❀❀ I give a heart every time I receive a beautiful enveloppe. If you decore your swap, if you wrap the gifts or if you take time to write a nice long letter.... No need to send extra gifts. I have a ton of things at home (including stationary). I value the time and care you put in the swap, not the amount of gifts & extras.

❀❀❀ A huge thank you to @StargazerHM for Angeling the Kawaii Ziploc Bag like it was Christmas. Thank you for having angeling and thank you for having put so much care into it and for your generosity

❀❀❀ A big thank you as well for @Esthercita79 for Angeling as well with such a nice care into it. It touched me really

Note to Swap Partners

*** Please note I might sometimes send a swap with 2-3 days later the date, because my office hours are the same as post office schedule. In this case, I will let you know and use Priority Mail to send the swap.

°°° Ratings : I always rate, even if late, I am rating all the swaps I receive.

Books, TV & Nintendo

β™‘ I LOVE READING BOOKS & Magazines β™‘

both in English and French.

I used to read the series : Harry Potter, Twilight, and more fantasy. Now I am more into realistic stories. I just finished the 4 books serie from Elena Ferrante and I loved it. I like Sophie Kinsella and similar author, Joel Dicker is a local favourite.

I also love self-help books and anything related to relationships & meditation.

I also like magazines such as Glamour & Cosmopolitan : I would love to receive UK or US versions.

I have a Kindle to read E-Books and I also listen audiobooks. (especially for self-help & educational)

Comment: This was a great swap. I liked reading your answers. Thank you for the fun e-book. I wouldn't mind a penpal in Switzerland.^_^ But that's up to you. Pm me and we could set up a private swap. Our post office sends to Switzerland, so I wouldn't mind writing letters either.:)
Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to read my email and for your very nice rating. Belgium is so close to Switzerland, but you'd be my first belgian penpal ^__^// I came to Brussel this year for the first time. It was nice and similare to here. Do you speak french too ? just sent you a message ! take care <3
