Hey guys, I'm going to talk about a package that I received the other day. It was from Eki and if you follow her blog or know her on YouTube, you might be aware that she has her own online store called EkiLove where there are many handmade items created by her! Things such as necklaces, earrings, bracelets, hair accessories, pouches and more :) She is so talented and all of her pieces are gorgeous!
I decided to make my first purchase from her store and I ended up purchasing two necklaces. With $50+ purchases, you get a free hair bow velcro so I thought, why not splurge just a little ;)
I was meant to receive the package earlier this month but a problem occurred. My address on the package was not no longer readable so it was sent back to Eki. She contacted my via email about it and apologised that this had occurred. I would be lying if I said that I wasn't unhappy with the outcome (I was planning to wear one of the necklaces to my graduation) but Eki was sweet enough to repackage it all and add in some extra goodies and refund me my shipping fee! She believes in great customer service and what can I say, I was very pleased with her generosity and kindness.
I wasn't able to take photos of when everything was still wrapped up because my mum made me open it all in front of her (she's very nosy when I receive packages!)
But I managed to put things together again in the nicest way possible:
♥ Everything was wrapped in pink crepe paper and pink ribbon
♥ Jewellery boxes and pouches for my necklaces
♥ FREE headband she included (RRP $12.00)
♥ Apology and thank you note with attached goodies
It was seriously the prettiest package that I have ever received, so much pink! Almost like a love package
If my package wasn't delayed, it would have been like this with a few of the goodies
♥ The headband
♥ Eye collagen mask
♥ Nail stickers which can be bought on her store (RRP $2.95)
I had to wait an extra week or so to receive the package but in the end, the wait was totally worth it! Because if I look on the bright side, the shipping turned out to be free and I received extra items that could have been purchased instead. She is so sweet.
Her jewellery pieces are really elegant and are inspired by hime-gyaru style, consisting of bows, crowns, keys, hearts and of course, those beautiful Swarovski heart crystals. They are so sparkly!
If you go on her store, you'll be able to see one of the necklaces that I purchased. It's called 'Falling Hearts Necklace'
What really attracted me about this was the mini key at the bottom and the two different-shaped hearts. It has elegance and simplicity, which I adore.
I bought the 16"-chained one with an aquamarine crystal and yellow crystal. I love it!
Closer look at the sparkly-ness
This second necklace is not on the store anymore and I'm not sure whether it will make a return. I forgot the name of this one but I think the name would have the word 'Butterfly' in it.
I love the lighting/editing of Eki's pictures, so pretty
Again the chain is 16". The other option is 18" and I think if I purchase from her again, I'll purchase one with 18" to compare the length
(I look more tanned here o_o must be my camera)
The silver plate of the butterfly has a glare when the light shines on it. White butterfly and flower crystals :)
Gahh I can't wait to wear these necklaces out! So so pretty and I wouldn't be able to find necklaces like these in shops ^_^ Which makes them even more unique. Thank you Eki for making such lovely jewellery.
I thought I'd also like to show you guys the headband that she made. It's called Pink Floral Bow Headband
Here is the girl herself who's behind all of these lovely creations - the gorgeous Eki modelling the headband
And then there's me... no where near as kawaii as her x)
This was the afternoon I came home after the interview. Don't know what I'm talking about? Check this post
Very limited makeup and it looks like I have really dark under-eye bags but that was my mascara transferring onto it :/
Maybe I should have worn circle lenses and make myself look more dolly hehe
But anyway, the bow headband is so cute and I really want to wear it out with a floral dress! I'm glad that Eki included this in my package, I was thinking of purchasing it but now I don't have to xD
That's all to this haul, I hope it was interesting. I will definitely purchase again from EkiLove in the future :) Let me know if any one of you are thinking of purchasing something from EkiLove, I'd love to see or hear about what you get!
