My first ekiLove purchase

Something really pretty arrived in the post today!

When I saw the little pink parcel with the ekiLove stamp on it, I had to refrain myself from tearing into it like a little kid on Christmas morning. Instead, I took some photos and slowly admired it. Then, I opened it carefully, layer by layer. I knew Eki's *click for Eki's blog* creations were made with lots of love, but I didn't know that the parcel itself would be lovingly wrapped, too!

'Twas my first time ordering from ekiLove *click to go to the store* and I was really impressed with the packaging! The pretty pink parcel arrived in a bubble envelope. After unwrapping the polka-dotted plastic bag and the pink tissue paper, a little box with a pink ribbon around it is revealed. Alongside it is a handwritten note from Eki and a FREE 3D nail sticker pack. After carefully removing the ribbon, I opened the box to finally see the actual item inside a little clear ziplock bag inside a little velvet bag.

Not only was it extremely secure, the whole parcel was just super kawaii!

I know Eki must be inundated with orders, but I received my order just under 2 weeks, which is very fast considering she is posting from the States.

These are the earrings I ordered. My lousy point and shoot camera does it no justice, so I had to ask Eki's permission to use the above photo. It already looks really pretty on screen, but I assure you that it's 10 times better in real life!! It's gorgeous and the swarovski is uber shiny! Eki really put a lot of love and effort into it and it shows as the craftsmanship is excellent and the earrings are of high quality.

When I read that 75% of the store's proceeds will be donated to the victims of the Japan tsunami/earthquake, I knew that I had to support Eki's cause. She has many handmade items on her store like necklaces, bracelets, earrings, hair accessories et cetera. I settled on these earrings because I fell in love with the crown and the colour of the swarovski stone is just too pretty. It's so girly, I love it! I would definitely be ordering more in the future.

Go support ekiLove!

    sunny: Hiya, it may have been a bit confusing because I linked to Eki's blog, her ekiLove website and her actualy ekiLove webstore. It does seem that her ekiLove website doesn't link to her store, but in any case, here's the link
    Hope this helps :) Can't wait to see what you get! :D
