About Me

Hello! I´m Rocío from Mexico City :) I´m currently living in Spain, studying a PHD in Hispanic Studies (Contemporary Spanish Literature).I love reading and writing and I spend a lot of time on it, so I really like having cute notebooks to take notes on, bookmarkers, cool pens, highlighters...Actually,I love stationery and things related with it.

When I was a teenager I used to have penpals and it made me really happy. That´s why I decided to join swap-bot. I love surprises, and the experience of writing and receiving mail. Waiting for letters that travel from faraway countries, or just seeing that a new envelope is waiting in my doorstep is really exciting...

On my free time I like doing Yoga or just enjoying Madrid:walking and finding nice places to have a cup of coffee and dessert.

I´m an animal lover. I had two lovely cocker-spaniels that taught me that there´s nothing like having a dog and loving it. I also love horses!!!! They are wonderful, powerful and sensitive creatures

I love illustrations, especially those on books for children, I also like painting with watercolours and I like to draw mandalas

My favorite movie is Spirited Away and I also love Totoro.


+Korean stationery, cute stickers, kwaii, lovely post-its

+illustrated postcards (if you send me a postcard, I would like it to come in an evelope that way you can write a little bit more, or add a note, plus the postcard will arrive in better conditions)

+I also like art postcards, specially Chagall, Picasso, Dalí, Monet, Van Gogh...

+dragonflies and butterflies. These winged creatures are magical and special for me.

+bookmarkers, since I love reading they always come in handy. So I appreciate nice store-bought bookmarkers.

+Mafalda. It´s impossible no to smile when you read Mafalda comics. I love her intelligence and simplicity.

+Small little details. I really appreciate when I realize the other person was thinking of me and wanting to make me smile. It desn´t take to much to make me or anyone else smile, I guess, but we are always in a hurry...

+colourful things, colours make me happy.

+Lisa Frank, Gorjuss girls, Me to you, Diddl, Nici, Snoopy.

+Birds, keys, things that look romantic and vintage.

+I also enjoy taking photos.

+friendship books.



+Remedios Varo

+tulips are my favorite flowers

+jewellery and designing earrings and bracelets

+lip smackers (you don´t find them in México or Spiain)

+beautiful socks -not white though-.

+things that smell good

+stickers, stickers and stickers!!!!!!!!!


+stamps and inkpads

+amatista and labradorite

+colurful napkins

+peach tea.

+And please handwritten letters, it´s more personal and I´d like to see your handwriting.

Life is very short so have fun, smile a lot, be as good as you can be, help others when you can and enjoy!!!

Comment: I loved reading about your grandmothers! I was so lucky - out of the four grandmothers I knew (two great-grandmothers), I didn't lose one until I was 12. Lost another at 16, another at 27, and the fourth one is still living at 102 (and I'll be 60 in a couple of months)! I'm glad I had them through my young childhood because they each taught me things. But how lucky you are to have such memories of one grandmother who passed away when you were very young! Thanks for sharing!
Comment: I got your postcard this morning, it's a great one, I don't have many from Spain so this made my day, I am great thank you, the weather is cold here, it's been snowing but it should warm up a bit after the weekend.

Comment: Rocio, thank you so much for the amazing postcard! You're right, the artwork is just beautiful and dreamy! I hope that school is going well for you! My goals are going well, I wanted to lose weight and so far, i've lost 21 lbs and in other happy news, I found out i'm going to be an Aunt so 2016 is pretty amazing for me so far! I hope that 2016 is just as amazing for you! <3
