3 EkiLove orders =D

Hi everyone!!

It has been a really long time since my last post and I apologize for those of you who have been following me and wanting to see my EkiLove purchases >__<. I am truly terrible at blogging and I just had to relearn that I need to upload my photos on photobucket to resize them because my pictures are just huge! Yep, I am definitely not technology savvy, nor am I a proficient user of a camera. This is why my photos are anything but super, and I hope that despite my lacking skills in photography, that you can still see what amazing items Eki has in her store EkiLove.

By the way, how is everyone liking her new format of the store in EkiLove? It's cute right? Hee x2, I love it! It's girly and cute and I love it ^__^. I love her previous formats before, but this is just as good =]! If you haven't had a chance to take a look, please go and see how the new format is =). I'm sure that Eki puts a lot of time into her work and also into blogging and the store, so please take a look at it and see what an amazing job she has done. To me, as a person who is utterly hopeless when it comes to html and web design, almost anything as simple as a banner across the top of your blog would amaze me, but Eki's design is more than that and it includes flash animations xD~ Ammazzzing! Hee x2, I really do get amazed by just about anything =P.

So in this post, I have 3 packages to share with you (because I am so lazy at blogging and keeping up with it). The first package is a few months back in May that I absolutely cannot, and will not forget to share with everyone =). By the way, I have been going to school Mondays-Fridays and only off on the weekends, but the packages that I receive usually come on the days when I go to school and dressing up/putting on make up is the last thing that's on my mind, so there are not a lot of photos that have me in them, and when they do, I am wearing my home clothes, so please don't let that get in the way of the items itself! Oh oh, and also, I dyed my hair dark now =(... I miss my light hair, but for the sake of my student teaching, I have to "tone-it-down".. =\ eh... Byebye my light hair, time to get used to the darkness >__> hee x2! MMkay, here goes the first packge:

As always, cute cute packaging with lots and lots of love <3~

Thanks to Eki I got to try Cellinique and Eki has done some reviews here

Unfortunately, I didn't picture myself wearing the "Kawaii Bow Earring", but they are beautiful!! Very elegant and kawaii =) For those of you who also purchased this, you know what I mean when you wear it and its just gorgeous! This was priced at $23, and it was definitely money well spent!

Here is the "Lovely Bow Necklace" with what I believe is called a 'Baroque' swarovski crystal =). There was a remake of this necklace not too long ago with a heart crystal instead~ I am really happy with this purchase as well because I just love how special and different this bow is (slightly slanted). This was priced at $25 and I've received compliments on it the first day I wore it out! Hee hee hee~ =D
And now, onto the second package that I received about 1.5-2 weeks ago =). This package featured one of Eki's newest headbands collection =]. I call it collection because so far, I've purchased all of them ever since her new batch has come out ^__^. Here, you will see the nasty photos of me wearing the headband and freshwater pearl earrings because I just had to try them on when I got them! Lol, so please excuse my frizzy hair and pj clothing =__=.

I just love the packaging! Do you notice anything different? It's really subtle, but the cellophane bag is a little different. Can you see? Hee x2~ The dots are not pink in this package, but white! I love it! It gives it a slightly wintery feeling and still just as kawaii! Expected from Eki, who really takes the time to make sure her packages are amazing!

Wow!! Look at this 'Thank you' seal/sticker! Absolutely cute! xD

Okay, so I know this photo is totally lame but, I was so so happy to receive a bow velcro for my hair because just the night before I received my package, I was going to order one of those regular rectangle shaped ones. But then, I got one from Eki!! By the way, this was before she had a promotion of giving them for free with a minimum purchase of $50, so I felt so special that she thought of me and also seem to have read my mind! Even if she had the promotion already, I totally did NOT order anywhere close to $50 this order =|, but what can I say? Eki is just like that, caring and giving and loving and pretty <3. href="">Eki! It's not just the little things in life, but EVERYTHING that just adds up and makes a person who they are as a whole. You're just wonderful ^_^! OH oh! I was also really happy to have received this color because look how pretty it is!!!! Hee x2, I would've chosen this color over all the other colors, well, maybe I would've chosen red too =P, but yep! So happy I got one and its a beautiful color xD

Funny thing, I still have the velcro in my hair in this picture... but when I opened the "Freshwater Pearl Flower Earrings", I was just so WOWED by how pretty they were! Eki listed that these earrings were not made by her, but because she thought it was really kawaii, she decided to share it with us and give us the opportunity to get in on her findings =D! I wear these a lot when I go to school now because it is cute, but at the same time, I find it to be very sophisticated as well! It depends on what you wear, but I usually try to wear "teacher clothes" now and it totally matches with my outfits! I purchased the white ones during its original price of $15. I'm glad I got them early before the sale because as you probably know, the white one's are all sold out! Whew! Of course you gotta pay a little more for good things ;) I'm just kidding ~ I met up with another blogger named Rina through Eki and Rina had the Lilac one's and they look beautiful too! Hee x2 you can't go wrong with these! I ultimately love the white one's because they can go with anything =D! Definitely love it!!!! So sorry for my Hollister shirt and my lame smile to my desk >___<.. But oh well.. This is the only photo I have so far =P

This is the very first headband that I was able to purchase from EkiLove. It is the "Hime strap headband" for $12. This was a good pink that was not too bright or dark! I must say, it does not go with just any color of clothing despite the design within the fabric. But that's probably because the majority of the headband is pink =P. I was not intending this to be an everything/all occasion headband at all so it really does not bother me at all! The pink is still so subtle that I can wear it with most of the colors of clothing that I have, but just not the style so much since its a bit cuter ;). Overall, this was definitely a great buy because the bow is so cute! It's got a double... um, wing? Hee x2, I dont know what to call it but, there is double bow flaps on both sides~ It creates a really nice depth and adds more to the bow =). I love it ^__^
Now, we're finally onto the package that I received today =D! Man... I started this blog like... almost an hour ago? Oh wait, I started the photobucket before that and... wow! It's been over an hour now and I'm still not done! I can't imagine how much work other bloggers and especially Eki has to put in their blogs >__<. I mean, mine is just as simple as it can be and yet, it takes me forever! *sigh... I really appreciate Eki and others for their time to blog =] Although I only read Eki's blog, I still admire those of you who take the time like Eki to blog about things for people like me to learn from and get to know you better =). Thank you!! Well, at least my blogging today is a bit more enjoyable because I have Eki's blog opened in the background and listening to her tracks =). Hee x2~ Thank you for that too Eki~!

Just to not bore you with my obsession with Eki's love packaging, I decided to skip right into the opened package since I realize I'm a bit weird to always photo and talk about the packaging =). But in case anyone was wondering, the packaging was very similar to the second package that I wrote about in this post ^__^. Look at the extra goodies that Eki always spoils me with!

How cute! I used to love eating these Milky candies =P! Thank you love!

Omg! Eki gave me a Paul & Joe lipstick in #16 Ballet Shoes!! How pretty! I haven't tried it yet, but I will definitely use it tomorrow when I go to school =D! She did a review of this lipstick and another one here in her blog (please scroll down). I really loved it when she did a review on her Paul & Joe products. I have never tried it myself and am really excited to use it ^__^ yay! Thank you again Eki for always sharing your favorites with me!

Nail stickers as part of my order!! How nice and sweet of Eki to include nail stickers for me =D!! I love doing my nails actually! But lately, I've gotten so lazy that I just go for a solid glitter color because when it chips, its not as harsh to the eyes as a solid color nail polish ;). But nail stickers is such a great and quick way to turn normal solid nail colors into something so special! And its easy to use and quick too! Hee x2~ thank you Eki!! =D

I forgot to photo the love notes that Eki included in the first package in the post, but Eki is always taking the time to write me and from that, you can actually feel and see the love and care she has <3. Thank you for being so sweet and nice to me Eki~! Oh oh~ and her love notes are always written in really cute stationary! Which I love!!! =)

Here is the "Hime Bow Headband". At first, I was a little afraid that this bow may be really big on my head, but it is actually just perfect! It is bigger than the previous headband that I wrote about in the second package, but it is nothing overbearing at all! I just love how this bow fans out and how cute these two fabrics come together! I really like this bow shape! =) Hee x2, I wish I could've taken a photo to show you, but I tried and the angles were just terrible >__<... But Yep, at $19, this headband is very cute! It is definitely not something I'd wear to my job interviews, but I would definitely wear this other times. It would go well with a really simple outfit (v-neck tee and shorts). This bow will add a little cuteness to your overall look! Love LOVE LOVE!
Here is Eki's "Floral Headband" and it was definitely a must-have when I first saw her post this! It is really cute in person and definitely something I'd wear with almost anything! Besides my super business-attire clothing =P. But yep~ This color, along with the floral is just beautiful! I'm so glad Eki used this fabric to make a headband =)! For those of you who also ordered this, I'm sure you know what I mean by cute! This one is definitely really chic =). This, along with the "Hime strap headband" is $12. It is sold out as of now, but who know's~ If Eki ever restocks this item, I would say to highly consider this one =D.
I guess that is it for my Eki packages =)! I do have an order that is on its way that I just ordered last night =). This next package will have Eki's "Vintage Flower Headband" and her "Hime Bow Earring". Good job to those who were able to purchase the earrings in time as they are sold out now =P. Hee x2 oh man, I've gone on a headband frenzy with EkiLove~ Hee x2 they are just so cute! Thank you for stopping by and reading my super long post that has been overdue for a very long time~
