much love, illy {review + giveaway}

Welcome to the world of beautiful things, a 'la much love, illy...


much love, illy is chock full of the most refreshing and super sweet accessories for just about anyone in your life. The colors, the poppies -- the poppies!!! I absolutely love the chic look of flowers in your hair, and much love, illy's poppy headbands will want you to get one in every color, and then another one to give to all your girls!! And it's not just headbands either; you can set yourself up with super cute rings, earrings, and hair charms too!




I know, these pictures already show how much fun you'll have over at much love, illy. But really, it hasn't even begun until you meet Miss Ilene (illy:)) herself! She's the sweetest, most energetic girl and just gushes positivity, and her shop does too! Browsing through her items, you can see the love she puts into each one of her special creations.





Ooh! I can't wait for you to see how each item arrives, but let me tell you first that it's fast! And honestly, this isn't just poppies glued haphazardly onto a headband, these babies are hand stitched and for sure not going anywhere! My girls were enamored with my vanilla crush poppy headband, and tugging on it to wear it for themselves, and that pretty little headband still looks good as new! That's quality! :)









See what I mean? Wrapped up just for you, in the sweetest envelope ever! This would make a fabulous gift, but I must admit, it'd be hard for me not to keep it for myself after loving mine so much!! And I do very much love my headband. And want about a billion more. She makes them on nylon headbands for babies/kiddos too... can you say embarrassing matchy pictures with my girls?!?!?! Oh Ilene, you are the best!! :)


Guess what? much love, illy is making a lucky reader out of one of you too! Not only will you get to pick out a blooming poppy headband, but an accessory too -- hair charms, rings, earrings, whatever you'd like! See, she's so great!!
