About Me

Hello everyone!

My name is Melanie, I'm in my mid-twenties and I live in the beautiful city of Montréal, in Canada. I was born and raised in a small town (10,000 people) in Ontario.

I share my apartment with my fat cat Hurley and my boyfriend Alan. My first language is French, but I understand,write and speak english very well.

I've studied both broadcast journalism and Public Relations, but I currently work in the fraud department for the #1 bank in Canada.

I love swapping postcards and items! I've discovered Postcrossing almost a year ago, you can visit my profile at: http://www.postcrossing.com/user/Beautiful_Lie

I'm looking forward to start swapping and discovering swap-bot! Please be patient with me as I'm still new... :)

  • Girls
  • The Office
  • The Mindy Project

Also, I play the Tenor Saxophone. I've played clarinet as a teenager and I know a few chords on the guitar.


Here's a list of stuff that makes me smile and that may give you some ideas for future swaps :)

  • CATS and all animals
  • washi tapes and stickers
  • letter sets

What I do for fun

I enjoy:

  • spending time with my boyfriend
  • playing board games
  • karaoke
  • eating. I'm a total foodie. I love food from all cultures... my favorite nowadays is Korean and Peruvian.
  • write letters/postcards
  • shopping
  • walk ( I walk everywhere, I don't have a car as I found it useless in a big city like Montreal)
  • cosplay
  • Going to the local market on Saturday mornings
  • occasionally playing Bingo
  • Follow my journalist friend to sport events (in the past year I've been to hockey games, baseball game, soccer game)
  • baking, my specialty is cupcakes and pies
  • roadtrips
  • go out for drinks
  • discovering new places
  • pedicures at the salon are my favorite thing

Comment: OMG! HA! Instant heart! Loved the shout out you gave Paul the mailman! I don't know who loved it more me or him! Lol the postcard you sent is amazing! And it's IKEA! But what's really meaningful is I just finished a book called "the ice cream queen of orchard park" it was a wonderful book! And the postcard really reminded me of the book! I love everything you wrote! It means so much to me you shared a secret with me! Now I owe you one! Love all the stickers too! And the postage stamps are amazing as well! Love how it looks like shania twain is commenting on Paul the mailman lol! Thank so much for everything!
Response: Hahaha Paul can say that Shania Twain once flirted with him through a postcard ;) so happy you enjoyed it! <3 (I'll have to look up the book...)

Comment: Thank you for the postcard. I love the phantom ship stamp. Zentangles are doodles... they named a lot styles and combining them makes really interesting patterned art. I've tried it and think it's pretty relaxing
Response: Yayyy! Thank you for letting me know what Zentangles are :)
