About Me

Disclaimer 1

Since I'm in Brazil, things may take a little longer to reach you, usually from 15 to 20 days (but it can take a month sometimes). Please be patient because I always send them on time. If you haven't received anything in a month, please contact me so we can figure things out! :) Thank you so much!

Disclaimer 2

I always thank people for sending me swaps and tags. If I haven't contacted you is because I didn't receive anything yet.

About me

me

My name is Carolina De Jorge and I'm 23 years old. I live with my parents and my sister in Brasília, capital of Brazil. There's also Princesa, our cute and playful Lhasa Apso. :P

I have always loved pen-palling. I have been writing letters for about 10 years! I want to start swapping too, so I joined Swap-bot! :) I have always sent my pen-pals great packages with birthday/Christmas gifts, postcards, stuffed animals and other cute stuff. So I figured swapping would be great for me!

Likes

PLEASE don't worry if you do not have access to Diddl and Kawaii stuff. I like EVERYTHING that's CUTE. Really! :)

Totoro

  • If you really want to see me happy you can send me cell phone charms, cute keychains, pens, memopads, notebooks and stickers, specially from Diddl and Kawaii characters! :P Diddl is my all time favorite and I will be thrilled for sure! Non HK characters are great also, specially My neighbor Totoro, because I don't have many access to them. Another thing I absolutely [heart] are bento boxes (and I can't get them here cries)! I love Disney too, but I have access to it, so it's not a priority.

  • I just got my hair cut so now I can use hair clips. It'd be nice if I received some cute and small (not childish) ones!

  • I absolutely love travelling. I have already been to the US, France, Italy, Switzerland and Argentina. I [heart] souvenirs from all over, specially t-shirts (size small or medium), stuffed toys, mugs, caps, keychains, magnets and pens/pencils! :)

  • I like bath and body stuff, specially moisturizers, handmade and liquid soaps! I prefer citric fragrances, but I like sweet too! Please keep in mind that I don't have a bathtub at home (Unfortunately).

  • Edibles from your country! I like tea and coffee, also all types of candy. And thank God I have no food allergies! Although I like to eat a lot, edibles are not on the top of my list when it comes to swapping... I think of it as an extra in packages (unless the person specifically calls for edible stuff).

  • UPDATE: I have just started this medical treatment and unfortunately I can't eat chocolate! So please don't send it to me. If you have already sent/bought chocolate for me though, there's no problem since I'll glady share it with my family and friends.

  • For ideas check the wishlist and the if you're crafty topics below! Thanks a bunch! :)

Private swaps

I'm totally up for one-on-one swaps, just send me a private message to see if we can work something out! If you want to trade brazilian Havaianas/Ipanema flip-flops, contact me! :P

Brazil I reuse packaging.

Favorite Music

I like everything but heavy metal. Pop, Rock, R&B, Jazz, Blues, Samba, Bossa Nova... :P I don't have favorite singers/groups, it really depends on the song.

Favorite Books

I like reading a lot, not only books, but magazines and newspapers too. I like cute and romantic books, like The Princess Diaries and classics, but I also like reading Harry Potter stories, lol! Edgar Alan Poe and Agatha Christie are great too.

Favorite Movies

Don't think anyone will send a DVD, but just in case... If you want to send me any, I'd really like Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Hairspray and Footloose.

Everything chick flick! The Princess Diaries, The Devil Wears Prada, What women want... Love comedy, watch little science fiction such as X-Men. I love watching movies adapted from books. The last one I saw was The Kite Runner.

Favorite Television

I get to watch brazilian TV a lot. We have many soap operas (they last about 8 months here) and also Big Brother Brasil. As for international TV I like all kinds of Reality TV (Extreme Makeover Home Edition, American Idol, America's Next Top Model) and Friends, Gossip Girl, ER...

Wishlist

These are the things I'll be absolutely happy (meaning hearts) if I receive, in no particular order:

  • Hannari Tofu (I have seen them around and they look soooo cute!)

  • Diddl and/or kawaii stuff (specially notepads, memopads and pens)

  • A kawaii plush (any character, I love them all!)

  • Anything food with faces

  • Bento boxes/supplies (not laptop lunch boxes though!)

  • Cute keycap

  • Cute mousepad

  • See "If you're crafty..." below

It's pretty easy, I like almost everything, no material/color restrictions! :)

If you're crafty...

You could send me a blind box toy either. We don't have them here and, actually, I don't even know exactly what they are. So... if you send me one, I'll like it!

I have just found out about mini moopies. They are the cutest thing! Another suggestion then. ;)

Thank you so much Jennifer for sending me my very first perfect stuffie.

Please don't send me...

Please don't send me candles or incense. It's not that I don't like them, but I just don't use them. I also don't have a bath at home so I won't be able to use any bathtub thingies you might send (sad I know). I cannot use DIY kits either, and I'm not very fond of dotee dolls... :) Oh, and no CDs/Mixed CDs either. Thanks!

Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful goodies from Brazil! =) I love everything, it felt like I just came back from a holiday in Brazil! Thank you for being so generous, I am worried that I didn't send you enough. I'm sure my bf will love the key chains, thank you! And oh the pretty notebook, give your mom a hug for sending that to me. It's pink and it's cute! Your mom's and your handwriting are both beautiful. =) Thanks for a great swap.
Response: Yay, it arrived quite fast, didn't it? I have replied to your PM. I'm so glad you like everything... Thank you for rating me! ♥

Comment: (editing for grammatical errors and because now I have a little more time) Hi Carolina! Thanks for the profile surprises! I think I will use the notebook during the next school year and I can't wait to try the drink! Authentic MADE IN BRAZIL.. oooh! Most of the sanrio stuff in America is either made in japan or china. Oh yeah, thanks for using the beautiful stamps, I collect them! =)
Response: I love that notebook, I think it's cute yet not childish. I mean, if I were still in college I'd certainly use it! ;) I hope you like the drink, açaí is very energizing, so I don't suggest drinking it at night. Thank you for the rating and heart! ((hugs))

Comment: Oh my gosh!!! That was such a wonderful package!!!!! I don't even know were to start!!! My daughter jumped right on the stickers, pencils (I took the pen for myself ~_^) and candy!!! I can't wait to try the tea and other drinks! You are right I don't have anything about tea on my profile because here in Arizona it is almost always to hot to drink it BUT it is still cool enough in the mornings to drink it (at least for another few weeks) so I will have that tomarrow morning!!! Thank you so much for everything! You have no idea how much I needed something nice like this right now!!!!!!!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Response: Awww I'm very happy that you like everything. Yes I know what you mean about the tea. Here it's very hot too but I still drink it, lol! The other drinks are supposed to stay in the fridge for a long time before drinking, so they get really cold! I love 'em. I hope you do too. I think the pen was my favorite item in the whole swap! It's too cute, I love the star on top of it! ((hugs)) for you and your kids, hehe! ;)

Comment: LOL I got your package today too! I love everything in it. Do you remember where you saw the pics of the altered bags and brushes? I'm really curious about that. Thank you so much for swapping!
Response: Eva, I don't recall because it was like *years* ago! But I remember once (I was a kid) I got one bag like that with a cute ribbon/bow glued on it, and inside there were these little stars and hearts, with a mini (really mini) post-it. I loved it! I'm glad you liked everything! Thank you for the heart! ;)
