My first blogger collaboration! | ILYMIX

I was gifted this product. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you, ilymix, for this opportunity. 

With just starting my journey as a new Blogger, I was quite thrilled to receive a notification through my Instagram account from a company expressing interest in partnering with me for a collaboration. How EXCITING! 

Working in social media, I am always reaching out to micro and macro influencers but I have never been on the receiving end of one of these emails. I now know what it feels like to have a brand express interest in something you’ve created, and I must say, it feels pretty amazing!

I had never heard of ilymix prior to them contacting me, therefore, I had no idea what kind of reputation the company had or what type of products they sold other than sunglasses. I took it upon myself to do some quick research, just to check if the company was legit or not. There was enough evidence online for me to feel confident in knowing I wouldn’t be scammed out of money, so I put my order in. Based on my experience, this company is 100% legit, they offer a great selection of sunnies and you can totally trust them! In fact, I had such a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to express my feelings about it. 

I placed my order on July 2nd and the package arrived on July 17th so delivery was right on time. Once I placed my order, I received a confirmation email including a tracking number allowing me to keep tabs on my new glasses, which is always a reassuring when online shopping. Am I right?

Like a 5-year old who couldn’t contain her excitement, I ripped open the package delighted to see a lovely brown box with ilymix printed on the front. My order was packaged with such caution and care and came complete with the cutest pink paper confetti. *See below*.

Now I don’t know how you guys feel, but I really appreciate cute packaging. Any company that focuses on great presentation is one that takes great pride in their product and also provides that WOW factor to its customer, ie. me, hehe.

I couldn’t choose just one pair so I ordered 4 pairs: the retro oversized cat eye sunglasses, the double crossbar metal pantos aviator, and one other pair that did not arrive with my package. Out of my overall experience, this was the only disappointment. I had originally ordered the Andri sunglasses in silver, however, a different pair were sent to me. I really wanted the Visby sunglasses in silver, but unfortunately, they were sold out. This item seems to be the hot topic for the season, as it continues to show up as sold out online. Bummer!

ilymix has an amazing range of sunglasses. Retro, small-frame sunglasses are on trend this season, and these guys carry a wide stock, which is great. Personally, I am not a fan of the small eyeglass look, but I’m always down to change with the trends. I took the plunge and ordered the retro oversized cat-eye sunglasses, which to me, looked the least small. As my face is round, I find larger frames better compliment my features.

I was shocked to discover that my favourite of the three turned out to be the retro oversized cat-eye sunglasses. I love the colour, the frame and how they look on my face. *See below*. Let me know what you think down below! 🙂

My least favourite, to no surprise, was the pair that I didn’t order. Overall, these sunglasses are well made, fit comfortably and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a new pair of shades. ilymix also sells iPhone cases, handbags, scarves and hats. I can’t speak on the quality of those products, but I can speak highly on these sunglasses, and they truly are a great value.
