About Me

last edited 2017/03/042

My name is Noora and I'm a 30 years old (OMG!) girl from far-faraway Finland. I haven't felt the need to write this before BUT! it's Noora with two O's, not Nora with one. I understand Nora might be more common outside of Finland but getting mail addressed to this "Nora" person makes me feel you haven't felt the need to completely read my profile or you're in such a hurry to send your swap, you make a mistake while writing my name :( It might not be a "big deal" but it bothers me greatly so please bear that in mind when sending things to me. Otherwise I'm a pretty easy to please-kind of a person so don't take my words too harshly! :)

Currently living in a tiny, forgotten city on the once tar-famous city of Kokkola with my 11-minute senior twin sister @liveve308 so we share the same address if anyone's wondering!) and our two cat misters.

To my partners sending from the States! If you can use Harry Potter or Marvel stamps, I would greatly appreciate them, those are fantastic!

Also, please send postcards stamped and written , NO ENVELOPES, thanks. I love having naked cards :D

If you send me an email, please DO NOT SEND PDFs or something I have to download, thanks!

If and just in case

  • I haven't rated you
  • my swap is late
  • anything else

please message me. I always send my swaps in time. I send on the deadline day (the latest) but after I drop it in the post, it's not in my hands anymore. If deadline is on Friday the package/letter/card might be stamped (even) on next Tuesday since the postal services are closed during weekends. This doesn't mean I take advantage of the fact though so... yep!

From now on, I will send using economy whenever I send something else than a simple postcard or a letter/anything else under 20g (roughly 0.7oz) since postage rates are at their all time high, and seem to getting higher still :O it takes a little longer but it will get to you. Thank you for understanding.

I AM GLUTEN FREE DUE TO HAVING CELIAC DISEASE! So please check, and check again, that you're not sending me anything with wheat, rye, barley as these items make me severely ill. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me before sending anything :) if your swap to me has anything with these ingredients in it, I have to get rid of everything included in it. So, please check one more time :)

  • I love photographs. Printed ones, not so much of e-mail attachments. Basically, if we'd still live 10 years back, I'd ask you to send me those 5 pictures you had to take from whatever to end the film so you could get it developed. Guaranteed heart!

EXTRA! EXTRA!

I love Tootsie Rolls but can't get them here in Finland T^T if you swap with me, please contact me when you're assigned as my partner and let's swap candies, sweets etc. as well!

Also. I have two cats laying around in my home so there might be cat-ish residue on things I send. I try to pick loose hairs away but might miss some so I hope this is OK with people getting things from me!

my boys

Dislikes and please don'ts's

Please do not send

  • animal postcards unless the swap specifically calls for it (however, illustrations are ok)

  • photos/postcards of people (esp. kids) unless depicted wearing traditional costumes (aka kimono, hanbok)

  • Hello Kitty (themed ones are ok)

  • mail/packages without note/letter (it doesn't have to be long, even a stickynote saying 'hi' is enough, it's not too much, is it?)

  • please, PLEASE make sure you check you write my address correctly before sending your swaps! I've gotten lots of things with tiny mistakes lately and even if I sound horrible saying this, it irks me greatly. If you can't write it, print it ;))

  • kid-related stuff (stickers etc.) or teachers reward stickers (kawaii things are more than ok but children's stuff -> no no)

  • neon colors :<

  • anything with beehives, bunch of holes etc. I have trypophobia and can get extremely ill with anything related to these kind of things :(

  • used stamps, I really don't have any use for those

Sorry for writing these down but it's easier for everyone if we know what our partners are looking for, right? :)

Chocolate and candy swaps~♪

  • Candy / Chocolate swaps: I love milk chocolate, not so much dark or white ones. No peppermints/mint flavors. I'm not a big fan of Ritter Sport yogurt and/or strawberry or Lidt. Nuts and others are ok, but no raisins or fruits.

  • Please no alcohol-related sweets, yuck! XD

  • Nothing coffee-related, taste-wise, either!

  • Candy-wise the Tootsie Rolls I already mentioned earlier, no jellybeans or grape-flavored things, everything else is ok I think :D

  • ABSOLUTELY NO LIQUORICE OR SALMIAKKI :(( (not only do I have a severe hate for these "candies", they also usually aren't gluten free so I can't eat them either way. Please don't send mixed bags of candies with these in there either as the rest of the candies will have been cross-contaminated and I can't eat them.

!!HOX!!

I have celiac disease so I can't eat any grains (wheat, barlea, rye etc.) so when sending edibles my way, please bear this in mind! If you have any questions, please feel free to message me and I'll explain more :)
