About Me

Hi! My name is Anaïs. I'm 25 years old. I come from Belgium. I live in Jurbise with my boyfriend. We've been together for 7 years. It's on the countryside, but not far from the city. I'm an English and Dutch teacher in secondary school. My pupils are from 12 to 18 years old. I love my job and I try to stay a young and an interesting teacher.

Favorite Music

I also love music! I'm a huge music listener. I don't have any favourite because I like a bit of everything, except rap and hardcore.

My favourite artists are Lady Gaga, Utada Hikaru, Lana Del Rey, Archive, Queen, Ghinzu, Mika, Black Eyed Peas, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Robbie Williams, Sia, Massive Attack, Shakira, Lykke Li, M.I.A., Block Party, Florence + the Machine, MGMT, the Ting Tings, ...

Favorite Books

I love reading too! My favourite books are detective stories, mysteries, ... I like Harlan Coben's! I fell in love with Swedish authors such as Lars Kepler, Stieg Larsson, ... I enjoy reading mangas: seinen en shojo.

Favorite Television

My weaknesses are TV series and dramas. I love girly stories such as Gossip Girl or Pretty Little Liars. But I also enjoy watching Dr House, CSI, Six Feet Under... I like watching J-dramas! My favourite are "Last Friends" - "Hana Yori Dango" - "Life" ...

Favorite Crafts

I create some polymer clay stuffs, such as keychains, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, phone straps, ...

My Passions

A bit more about my hobbies! I love penpalling, dancing, reading, movies, music, cooking, ... Penpalling is been part of my life since I was 10. I started by exchanging cards and pictures of the Spice Girls. Then I joined some penpal forums. I've got about 15 penpals from France, Korea, Japan, ... I love sending colourful letters! I consider my penfriends as real friends. I don't like short letters, I prefer long ones full of questions, stories, ... I've been swapping for 3 or 4 years. I love the excitement of sending your package! I always try to do my best when preparing them. You can see some pictures of them on my blog! Oh yeah, one thing about me: I'm collecting objects with maneki neko's on them: statues, bracelets, phone straps, keychains, ... I love them!!!

Bellydancing is my huge passion! I've been practicing it for 9 or 10 years now! I started in a group with my mum. I'm still going to the lessons but I'm also giving some shows. I'm creating choregraphies with my best friend and then we sell our show for weddings, oriental "dinners", ...

About swapping

I love getting lots of things in swaps. - My favourite colours are: red, black, grey, pink, purple and green.

  • I love handmade jewels: bobbypins, bracelets, necklaces, ...

  • Sweets, cookies, chocolates, ...

  • My favourite smells are: coconut, strawberry, monoï, chocolate, coffee, citrus, ...

  • My favourite pets are: cats and guinea pigs (I've got one guinea pig! Its name is Tiramisu! My beloved Donuts died)

  • My favourite kawaii characters are: Totoro, Chococat, Maneki Neko's, Nohohon, Kokeshi, ...

  • Stationaries: lettersets, letterpads, decotape, stickers, pencils, pens,...

  • Plushies and handmade stuffs.

  • Polymer Clay stuffs.

  • Mangas or fashion magazines in English/Japanese.

  • Oriental dance DVD's

  • Shower gel, nail polish, hairclips, badges, ...

  • Japanese sweets: Pocky, Hi-Chew, ...

I don't like getting:

  • Gummy and jelly candies!

  • Scrapbooking stuffs.

  • Cigarette smelly stuffs! I swear ... I've already got a plushie and a t-shirt smelling tobacco.

  • Ashtray or lighters. A girl sent me a horrible ashtray she probably stole in a hotel or pub. Not very pleasant!

  • Black licorice.

  • Lip gloss.

  • Things related to religion. I'm an atheist. So, I hope you won't mind if I'm not interested in those things.

I'd like to learn a lot about other cultures and I enjoy swapping with people from all over the world.

Flaked by

I got flaked by:

  • @sugarface25 (on the "50 questions" swap)

  • @rabu (on the "Taste your country" swap)

  • @ChikuNamika (on the FLAKED ON? Non-Flat Mail Swap#2) No... that's not a joke! She flaked me on a swap I've already be flaked on.)

  • @scrapkween (on the Share Your Language! - Swap)

Those people didn't rate me:

  • @ieatmousetraps (on the "Xmas tree" swap)

  • @poohbear1183 (on the "100 Valentine questions" swap)

  • @postergurl (on the "Summer questions" swap)

  • @usatxswap (on the "Some questions you've probably never been asked" swap)

  • @existentialist (on the "Eating and food questions" swap and also on the "Hobbies and Free time questions" swap)

I so want to tell you guys that I'm getting more than tired of flakers! That's really irritating to send something you've done with love to someone and not to get your swap or even your rate back! So please! If you're not serious... don't swap with me!!!

Comment: Thank you for your answers. I love reading about you .
Comment: I enjoyed hearing about your unique collection. My sister just began collecting nail polishes as well. It's really cool how some bottles come in interesting shapes. I agree how beauty can be found in pictures of polished nails. I like to see what creative nail designs people come up with sometimes. It is a form of art where your nail is your canvas, When I was in an Cosmetology introductory course, I found that I enjoyed the aspect of nails the most. Have you ever heard of dog nail polish? :o I found that in a pet store once. How much did you pay for your most expensive bottle?
Response: Never heard about dog nail polish! ;) Funny! The most I paid for a bottle was about 30 €! Thanks for your comment by the way!

Sorry this is so late, hope this finds you well... I have not been feeling well... I was in the hospital for awhile and my sister was suppose to take care of my swap-bot for me but I guess not :( I am always good with my swap... I'm still not feeling 100% better yet but I'm getting there... Now trying to catch up on my swaps :) I hope you have a great day and a great rest of the week...

PROFILE HELLO- Hi! I'd never be able to bellydance! I'm very shy and it's wonderful that you can put yourself out there like that! Bravo! I once upon a time wanted to be a teacher, but things changed and I had a family instead and now we don't have the money for college, unfortunately. I, too, dislike black licorice for some reason. I hope you have a wonderful day and you have a wonderful profile!

Hello! I hope you're having a good weekend.

I love the name of your guinea pig! I have one cat. Well, it belongs to my husband, but since we're married I guess it's mine now as well. Her name is Asha and she's 10 years old.

Take care!
