About Me

My name is Maryke but my friends call me Rykie (pronounced "Ray-key"), i am 34 Years old. I live in sunny South Africa with my husband and twin toddler girls. I consider myself Witty, open-minded and creative. I love bargain hunting, watching YouTube videos, cooking and writing to Pen pals.

Favorite Music

I'm old school, I'm into old school Hip-hop and Rock. But my tastes really vary from Opera, Electronic, Dance, Blues, Pop and Punk rock. But my real love is Disco! Yes! it's my guilty pleasure!

Favorite Crafts

I love many different kinds of crafts but am currently enjoying Bullet Journaling and mail art. I collect stickers, a hobby I've picked up again from when I was a little girl. Other than that I enjoy trying ideas from Pinterest and enjoy DIY projects around the house. I find it difficult to find pretty Letter writing paper or Envelopes here so I tend to decorate stuff myself. I also sometimes write a interesting fact on the back of my envelopes for the mail man to read, LOL.

My likes

Favorite colour is Teal, Turqoise and hot pink. Bright Colours, Neons and happy designs. I like gothic things or Rock style. I love Pin-Ups and Rockabilly, old hollywood and Art Neveau. I love chocolate, preferably as dark as my soul... Lol! I love stickers that I can paste into my sticker album. I love nail art and spend a good few hours a week on painting and nail stamping. I love everything related to Harry Potter, Halloween and zombies. I love cooking and am currently on a low carb, no sugar eating plan but will make sacrifices for good chocolate. I'm currently teaching myself how to cook Mexican dishes (or Tex mex) and love learning traditional dishes from other countries. I love all kinds of birds and esspecially anything that has Flamingos on it "be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons" I like Kawaii but it's really hard to find anything Kawaii in my country. Love the Queen of England Love Betty Boop I Love dogs, my favorite being Wired Hair Fox Terriers

Not so keen on...

Not so keen on liquorice. Not an avid reader but like the idea of sitting in a comfy chair and read lots of books. I admire anyone who does that. Not keen on cats as I'm allergic but love things that are decorated with kitties. Not keen on discussing Feminism, racism or any other kind of -ism. Although I am technically Christian, I'm not overly religious, but don't mind receiving religious cards or verses. I find Roman Catholic Saints very interesting and dont mind learning about them.
