Eki Package with Seaside Necklace etc.

Hi hi~

I know I said that I would post about my recent order from Eki including her new "Seaside" necklace and Alice pouch and didn't get around it till now, so I really want to apologize in case anybody has been checking =\. So I just want to warn everyone that this is another picture-heavy post. As some of you may know, my posts are mainly composed of pictures after pictures and a few line in between the photos here and there. I really think that the pictures speak for themselves (minus the fact that I do not know how to take pictures >__<). But I try to also give my honest opinion about the jewelry or creation itself so that those of you who were also interested in the same item can have a better idea before you buy it the next time around =P. I received my order from EkiLove last week and below, you will find pictures from the packaging itself (which is always filled with so much love and goodies xD), the super sweet extra goodies, and the items I ordered =P.

Eki used Juicy Couture tissue paper for the inside packaging!! My favorite store xD

That is the first time I saw her use this packaging tape and its really cute and matches with the whole theme of her packaging ^__^ ~ love it!

Eki included a wonderful and heartfelt letter to me =). Thank you so much Eki!! I really cherish everything you have shared and given me =]. Thank you for taking the time to write me a letter and being so nice to me! **hugs**

Luv ya too Eki!!
This is soo cute!! Eki included Hello Kitty hard candies in with my package and some milk candies too!!! AhhhH!! It's so cute!!! =D
This is what was inside the package =). Eki included face masks and crystal collagen eye mask for my beauty regimen =P. There are three boxes with jewelry in them =P. I ordered the "Seaside" necklace, "Royal Love" necklace, and Eki gave me a really special gift ^__^ Which will be revealed down there ;)
This is the limited edition Anna Sui finishing powder that Eki gave me as a gift =D!!! The outside and inside of the casing is detailed with butterfly and floral designs!! It is a really cute and beautiful case!! Thank you Eki!!! I love this so so much! You're always so generous to me and giving me the bestest things! **hug hug**Here is a side view of the new Alice Travel pouch with inside compartments in Pink =P. It is $32 and I think it is such a handy and awesome pouch! I currently use it for the make up that I bring with me when I go out... An extra feminine napkin (for emergencies), lotion, mirrors, tissues.. and just ALL those things that would normally be floating around in my purse =\. I love how Eki made compartments and added lace to the borders of the inside pockets! I'm a huge fan of cute lacing and these linings accentuates the cuteness and hime-look that this travel pouch was going for =)! I'm really happy I made it in time to order this one because Eki only made 2 pouches of each color =P. Btw, the charm that Eki uses for this bag is an amazingly shiny new baroque crystal that she got in the previous batch of items where she used them to make earrings I believe =P. But yup, adds a little bling to my life and the same key charm used in the "Royal Hime" necklace/bracelet ^.^

This is the side where I call it, the "long side" because this compartment is opened all the way from one end of the pouch, to the other end. Below are some examples of what types of things you can fit into these 'pockets'. It gives you an idea of how big they are =)

This is the side with 2 smaller compartments that fits a regular-sized compact just fine ^__^~ How neat huh? Hee x2
This is the "long side" that I was talking about up there. Here, you can see that I can easily fit the face mask that Eki included in the package =). Btw, it looks like the mask doesn't go down all the way, but actually, it does. I'm just pulling it up to show you what I was putting in the pocket =P. Hee x2~
This is the "Royal Love" necklace that uses a different key charm from the traditional one! It's a tad bit longer than the previious one, but I really love this heart key because its simple yet, special because its a heart =] I love this necklace! I previously ordered one for my aunt for her birthday and she loves it =). The crystal is just stunning and Eki, you did a really amazing job with this one ^__^. I am truly grateful that you made them with a 925 sterling silver chain =D. This necklace sells for $23 and comes in a 20" chain. I'm sorry that I'm not wearing this necklace to show you, but the day I received the jewelry, I was not up for taking pictures >__< photographer ="P" shinier ="P)This is the new "Seaside" necklace for $26-$30 and it comes in either silver plated chain, snake chain, or 925 sterling silver chain in different lengths. I chose the 18" Sterling Silver chain for $30 because I feel that its only a few more bucks for quality and it is worth it ^__^. I know that a lot of us have a budget and that most of us feel that the best thing to do is keep every penny we have. But I think of it this way, in the long run, I want to still be able to wear this necklace after a few polish to the silver instead of getting silver plated that will just wear out over time even if you don't wear it =\... But yup! Back to the necklace, I just wore it today and loved how the charms were all showing and how the crystals complement each other =D. Since its on an 18" chain already, it sits even lower because of the length of the charms that dangle =P. So when you want to order this necklace, keep in mind of what you want to wear it with and decide the length with that in mind ^__^

I have small hands, but not THAT small.. and as you can tell, the charms cover from one end to the other end =P. Absolutely stunning though~ I also have anchor earrings that I ordered from Eki in the past that could possibly match =).
This was the surprise that I kept from you until the very end!! Eki was so sweet to specially make me this Royal Hime Couture bracelet when I told her that I really REALLY wanted to order it!! Thank you Eki!! When I received this, I was so wowed at the fact that you must've put so much work and effort into making this piece. I am so grateful to you and all of the hardwork and love you put into making me and other people happy ^__^. But yes, for those of you who were able to purchase this bracelet back when it was available, congratulations on owning one of the most intricate bracelet that I've ever seen! I really love this bracelet and although my camera doesn't do justice to this bracelet, it is actually in Rosaline pearl.
Here is me wearing the bracelet. Keep in mind that I do not have the fairest skin color (I run a bit beige/medium tan), and it still looks amazing with my skin tone! I was always afraid that light link jewelry would not look good on me because of my skin color, but this is just beautiful~ (I know this picture is also cheating because its showing you the underside of my arm and the underside tends to be lighter in color ;P)

Here, you can probably see that my arm is a darker shade, but still, I personally think that the bracelet still looks amazing on me and it is just so so special! If you like girly and cute bracelets, this one is and was definitely the right choice for you!

That is it as far as picture goes! I just cannot thank Eki enough for all of this love and happiness that she brings me =). Someday, I plan on seeing Eki, whether it be me going to Minnesota to see her or Eki coming down to LA for vacation, I hope to be able to meet her in person =). Someone like Eki is definitely worth seeing and being around with because she is genuinely nice and selfless. She can sit there for hours listening and responding to my rants and problems while working on orders and other work she has! Truly an amazing person and friend! I am so glad that I found her through her lovely creations on EkiLove . She really has no reason to be nice to me since I have not known her prior to this, but she chooses to be accepting and loving to anyone she meets. Most importantly, Eki can relate to me and it makes me feel more connected with her in a whole new different level that I never had with any of my friends that I've known for years. Okay, I sound like a total loser, but its true! It's a wonderful feeling to know that someone cares and shows their kindness regardless of who you are and where you're from. Thank you Erika, thank you for being who you are and I am truly blessed to know you <3.

That is it everyone! Good night and thank you for reading my post =)!

An older and delayed package update

Hi Everyone!! So this is a package that I received about 2 weeks ago and never posted because I am such a lazy blogger =(... BUT, I realized that I forgot to take pictures of the actual items that I purchased, so I'll try to rename them here =). This was the batch with the new "Alice necklace" and "Alice earrings". I bought both because they look really good ^__^. Hee x2. I also bought the "Royal Love" necklace (which is really popular and sells out really fast =P). Eki also included a pair of earrings that go really well with the "Royal Love" necklace =P. She does have a matching pair of earrings on her site, but the one that she made for me is slightly different (minus the key). But yup! I hope you all enjoy the packaging of this order =). It is my first time receiving white jewelry boxes, it may be EkiLove's first use of the white ones =D. Hee x2~
A really sweet letter~ Thank you Eki~!! Luv ya too!!!
A Chou chou that Eki made <3! details =")!">

The new white jewelry box I was telling you about~ It's a glossy finish =]
Remember my previous posts about details?? Look at the cute crown Eki put onto the chou chou!
The matching earrings that goes really well with the Royal love necklace =)
My complete package (minus the outside wrapping)
That is pretty much it that I have for this post since I didn't have pictures of the actual jewelry =|.. But next post, I will be talking about the package that came in today!!! I'm really excited to show you the Alice in wonderland pouch that Eki recently made with inner compartments! =D And also a new look at the "Royal Love" necklace... the Seaside necklace... and a bracelet that I will keep secret until I post again ;). Alrighty, it's a long day ahead for me tomorrow, so I will post you later~ =)

And now.. I shall leave you with a better quality picture of me wearing EkiLove's "Princess Couture" Necklace:
Thank you for reading ^_^

"Your package is on its way!"

Hi =]!

It's early here for me 8:04AM and I'm in class =P. But of course, I was tracking the package from Eki for her most recent batch of items and it is coming today =)!!! That is, of course, if USPS decides to fail me today and somehow don't deliver it.... **cross fingers** But yup! I thought I'd just share with all of you of my excitement to receive my package today =D! I will try to make a post later today of the items that I ordered =].

That is all for now~ Thank you for reading =]

Princess Couture Necklace

Hi everyone!!

Here are some webcam pictures of me wearing EkiLove's "Princess Couture Necklace". I know they are not the best quality, but I said I was going to take pictures of me wearing some of the jewelry that I got from Eki and I so happen to be taking pictures with the webcam while wearing this necklace =]. I must say, so far, my favorite bracelet and necklace from EkiLove is this set: "Princess Couture Bracelet" and the "Princess Couture Necklace".

The "Princess Couture Bracelet" is $27 and Eki was super sweet and nice to include the matching necklace in with my package ^__^. I am so happy that she did because I LOVE THEM! I wear this set EVERYday. Although I also ordered the "Alice necklace" from Eki, I still wear this set everyday and haven't gotten around to wearing the other necklace =P. Hee x2! The bracelet comes in white or rosaline pearl. I got the white pearl and I think it looks amazing! Seeing Eki model this bracelet in her photos, I knew I just had to get it ^_^ The best decision ever made =D! Hee x2 =].

In these photos, I did not take a picture of the bracelet because I am really bad at positioning myself in photos >_<... And although these photos are not of good quality, I hope that you guys will still enjoy and see how cute the necklace looks ^_^! By the way, I am not a gold-jewelry wearer, but this pair of accessories is really beautiful and would change your mind about not wearing gold jewelry =). Well, at least it changed my mind =P hee x2!

Here's a (hopefully) better look at the charms and AB crystal =)

Well, that is it for now! Thank you for reading and stopping by ^_^

Eki Eki Eki LOVE! ^__^

Hi hi everyone!

I just placed another order with Eki and realized how behind I am on uploading pictures of my previous two packages =(. I know that I have been saying I would upload photos of me wearing the jewelry, but I still have not taken any photos of me wearing them (where the jewelry actually showed). So poo... =( But yup! Here is a package that I received a little short while after I returned from Hong Kong =)! Please enjoy all of the love and thoughtfulness that Eki put into my package (please click on the photo below and it will link you to my album =):

Eki Package!

Thank you for reading again! I know I am really bad at keeping a blog, but please bare with me =P. I will try my best to upload the pictures of my next package ^__^
