EkiLove Goodies!!

Ahhh, I had an amazing weekend spending time with one of my best friends, Hannah (the same girl who did the amazing hair from this post). She's one of the most creative people I know and I can't express how much I appreciate being inspired both artistically and spiritually. I really think that one of the best ways to stay happy and healthy is to surround yourself with friends who are good people and love you for who you are. Even if it takes 6 hour drives to see each other sometimes. ;) Thank you so much for staying with us Hannah, I love you!!!

Speaking of loving friends, I wanted to share with everyone this amazing love package I received from the very talented and loving Eki of ekimura.blogspot.com and her kawaii shop, ekilove.com.

First of all, I'd like to mention that Eki has the most amazing packaging of any online shops I've seen. She's always telling me that she is putting her packages together and you can see why they take so much time! It's because she puts so much love and thought into each one. Lots of cute tissue paper, ribbons, and pearlescent business cards.



Here is what I received (minus the flower headband). And OMG ume candies on the right! I am obsessed now! They are a salty, sour, sweet plum candy and I am making another Japanese friend of mine bring me back some from Japan because of these. XD



The gorgeous love lock earrings!



Burt's Bees Pomegranate Oil lip balm (I love this stuff!), Cellnique Skin Action Sebum Gel samples, and sparkly nailpolish!!!! She knows how much I love polish. :D



And a collagen crystal eye mask and My Beauty Diary mask. I can't wait to try this mask everyone has been talking about!



And of course I saved the best for last, a handmade Nintendo DS case, perfect for my pink DS. What can I say? I'm a big nerd. (I highly recommend Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton games ;) Ahh, look at the gorgeous charms!



Super cute pink bow <3





DS fits perfectly. And it matches too.



Such good handmade craftsmanship, with pleats in the back.



Even has a pocket in the back, and everything was lined with nice fabric. I was really impressed.



My mug with my new kawaii ds pouch!



Super adorable lavender flower headband, also from her shop



And here are the Love Lock earrings, worn. This one is style "C".



And style "B".



Ahhhh, Eki thank you so much! I can't wait until you get my love package too! :D

Again, if you like these please visit http://www.ekilove.com/ and support the revolution of kawaiiness!

  6. Those are my favorite candies! I used to be able to find them all over the place around here, but now I have to make a special trip in SF to find them (which makes me sad. I could go through a bag in a week, easy). That reminds me, I need to make a trip, hehe.

    That's a lovely DS case (and earrings, hehe).

  11. I love Eki's blog and her products! I never bought any but once I find something I really like, I will splurge, trying to save money for presents. I don't know where you live butif there is a Mitsuwa near you, those ume candy [the one with the woman], can be bought from there. I bought mine there. I also bought ume candies from the Asian [Chinese] supermakers. Hopefully, you can find some there so you don't have to wait for your friend to come back from Japan. By the way, I love Phoenix and Layton games. I can't wait for the third Layton to come out. I really wish they would make a movie; I love the style of the art in the games. :) Can you recommend any other games?

  12. Adriana: I love fun, educational games! puzzle games are great. you should definitely order something from Eki when it comes back in stock! :D

    e.motion in motion: ooh, you should post about yours when it comes in too! ^^ I can't wait to see.

    Babybubblz: I know! It's so much better than the one I had before. I was looking far and wide for a cute DS case without much luck until now. :D

    xphoebelinax: aww, haha. maybe you should try using a backscratcher or a long stick to fish it out. XD

    Kaoru: I'll have to check at my local Asian market. mmmm, ume candy. :D

    Eki: Ahh, they didn't turn out that great because I ran out of batteries on my dslr! I used my snapshot and it was blurry but too late so I'm just gonna post the bad pics. hehe. thank you so much for the goodies!!! <3

    Steph: I haven't much lately but I do have fun with my games once in a while! Hubby is the big gamer so I gotta partake sometimes. ;)

    omelette: Yeah, I should check locally. I never saw it before but maybe I just didn't know what it was. As for games, I really recommend My Sims, Cooking Mama, and Zoo Keeper. :D But I like all of the Phoenix Wright series the best!

  16. Eki is the Best!! and you are too! 2 of my most favorite beauty blogger girlies!! love you two!!<33 hehe I haven't bought anything from Eki yet, but I really want to...I've been eyeing her hair bows and headband creations since she first debuted them in her store. I also want to buy a ton of stuff from DSK, but it has been a tough year financially for me, so I've cut back on a lot of spending. :'( No splurges on things like jewelry and accessories even though I really want to and have been tempted so many times! :'( hopefully 2010 will be a better year, so that I can spend again!<3 For now, I'll just drool over things I want and make note of all them so that I'll be ready to order when the time comes! Love your cute little DS case! SUPER kawaii! :)
