About Me

Care bears

Update profile: 2-2-2023

Please read the part about shipping at the bottom of my profile! And about my swaps and if you have me as a partner!

Hiiiii! I'm Melanie or as people like to call me: Mel. I am 31 years old from the Netherlands.

I am a pretty big nerd. Not because I am wearing glasses. But I am a writer and dutch author. So I love to read. Romance books. Sometimes Thrillers. And I used to read a lot of fantasy but I don't seem to enjoy those anymore. I also watch a lot of tv shows and movies.

I work in a store three days a week. In the other time I work on my books and I edit scripts of other dutch authors.

In 2014 I graduated in health care and before that I studied three years animal care. I like it both but I think I enjoy retail more.

I have this thing for notebooks. More like an addict because I have atleast twenty empty ones because I journal a lot. So yeah, someone who journals needs a lot of those.

And I am a sushi addict. I can eat that everyday for the rest of my life!

Wishlist

Melody

Things I wish for since my country isn't into the journal stuff they have in other countries.

My favorite animal is an elephant. ♡ Halloween and autumn, Unicorns, Mermaids, Kawaii, Cute animals (Love Welsh Corgi Cardigans), Movies, Harry Potter, Books, Hearts, Sushi and Ice creams or desserts and Marvel. Kawaii stuff.

Food

Food

I love to eat food I never had before. Mainly snacks like candy bars. I love to try: Pocky sticks or any other Japanese stuff, Pop Tarts (I tried Strawberry, confetti), Cadbury, Nerds (Already had the yellow one), M&M's in different kind of flavors, KitKat's in different kinds of flavours, Wonka candies, everything sour, also I love anything with cheese! Love chocolate but white chocolate is my favorite. And everything related to India!

When you have something you would like to sent but you don't know if I would like it, just sent me. But don't if it is from my own country.

TEAS & COFFEE

I like tea but I do like certain flavors.

Tea: Chai, Moomins Teas, Green teas, black teas and I am always in for crazy flavors.

Don't send me the following flavours: Lemon and Mint.

Don't send me anything coffee related. I don't like the taste at all.

Stationery

♡ General: Kawaii, Memo pads, Washi tapes, Sentimental Circus, My Melody and other figurines. And other cute things. Care Bears and My Little Pony.

♡ Stickers: Sticker flakes. Disney. Pokemon. Movies related stickers. Elephants, Glittery. Everything cute!

Favorite Music

Food

My music taste has changed over the years. Before I more into metal/rock like: Within Temptation, Nightwish, Deathstars and so many more.

Nowadays I also like other music. For example I like Taylor Swift (the newer Taylor), some songs of Billie Elish and a lot of others.

Favorite Movies

Food

I have so many, I don't even know were to start.

I grew up with watching Buffy the vampire slayer. It is still one of my favorites but I like so much more these days.

The Harry Potter are all-time favorites. Fantastic Beasts and where to find them. The Hobbit. Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. A Cure for Wellness. MARVEL!

And i still love watching tv shows. Castlevania. The Dragon Prince. The Walking Dead. Lucifer. Siren. Outlander. Star Trek Discovery.

Favorite Crafts

Angel

I mentioned I like to journal so everything I get through the mail or which I buy, I use for my journaling. I simply love to decorate my pages with washi tape and stickers.

Dislikes

Disney

Please don't send me the following things.

  • Spicy food, things with Mokka or coffee flavour.
  • Handmade stuff.
  • Religious stuff.
  • Everything related with cats.

Shipping & My Swaps

Food

Please don't give me a bad ratings. If you haven't recieved my package after 4-6 weeks, please message me. We all know how the mail system can be. Sometimes packages get lost or they will send them back to the owner. But I am always happy to sent a new one if it is lost!

Swaps!

I mostly host sticker and washi tape swaps. Sometimes I do profile decorations. I did a few now and learned from them.

I am telling you now, if you are to late, you will be banned. If you do not want to resend when your partner didn't recieve anything, you will be banned. Ofcourse there are valid reasons for being too late, but i don't accept bullshit excuses. If you can't affort or have the time to sent your envelope or package, don't join the swap. It is that easy! I keep a list with names!

If you have me as your partner!

I do not mind if you cut sticker sheets to fit the envelope. Whatever the requirements say, I won't rate you down for it. Sometimes the requirements say not to send kiddie stickers. This means no Disney stickers. I don't mind if you sent me those, I love them. So please do!

Favorite Books

I am an author. On my Goodreads profile you can see what is published with my name on it.

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/16996775.MelanievanGarderen

At this moment I do not buy books except if they are from Sarah J Maas. I just don't have the room so I really love my Kindle.

A few of my favorite are:

  • Sarah J Maas

  • Sarina Bowen

  • Lily White

  • Elle Kennedy

  • M. Robinson

  • Nana Malone

Nana Malone is like in my top 3 of non dark romance authors. Elle Kennedy & Sarina Bowen are my favorite M/M Romance writers. But mostly I enjoy dark romance.

Comment: Thanks for the swap. I'm a t.A.T.u. fan. I first heeard "All The Things..." and loved it. Then I found they were a gay couple and I liked how brave they were for coming out, especially in Russia. Now, of course, we know that they weren't really gay but I love their music anyway.

What a great idea for a swap! What I did for this swap was choose two things from everyone's profile that they liked. Here goes!

I hope you like what I chose for you.

Blessings,

Yvonne
