If you’ve been here awhile, you know I love H&M. Sure, there’s a mixture of high and low quality pieces (you ALWAYS get what you pay for — make note of that when shopping online!!) but there’s always some treasures to find! Recently, I’ve been …
So, as some of you saw on stories the other day, Chicwish reached out to me and asked if they sent me a few pieces, if I was interested in giving them a brand review. I said yes, picked out my favourite items, and here we are!
The first piece I picked out was their ‘Cuteness on Sleeves’ cardigan. This is a hand knitted acrylic and wool cardigan and I am IN LOVE. It’s so, so cute and cozy! It’s also not itchy at all, which is great because I had planned on wearing it exactly as pictured (with a cute little lace cami). I picked the S/M size but it runs large and should’ve gone with the XS.
The second piece I picked was their ‘Heart and Soul’ knit sweater. This little number has the cutest heart detail stitched onto the elbows, and again, I am totally in love! It’s thick, warm, not itchy at all, and fits great. I picked the Small for reference and find it runs TTS. I roll down the turtleneck!
The final piece I picked was their ‘Pocket of Charm’ mini skirt. I found it a little snug fitting it over my hips, but once it was in place, it fit me perfectly. It’s lined with shorts, and again, I found the material itself very thick (which is perfect for the Fall and Winter!). Finally, the zipper was also a little sticky when I first put it on, but the second time I put it on I didn’t have an issue, so maybe it just needed to be used. I ordered a size Small for reference!
Overall, I found all the pieces to be very well made. Nothing felt thin, or cheaply made – actually the opposite, I was quite impressed with how thick and luxurious all the pieces were!
I also found the sizing to be very accurate. I followed the sizing guide on the website and didn’t have a problem (looking back, I’m not even sure why I didn’t order the cardigan in a XS since that is my usual size for sweaters).
Shipping for me was also pretty good, considering it’s coming from another country. It took approximately a week and a half for it to arrive at my doorstep in Ontario, Canada.
So all in all, I was very impressed with the pieces I ordered from Chicwish, and would definitely recommend them to others! I definitely had my reservations, but honestly, I loved everything I picked and have nothing really negative to report. Hopefully this review proved helpful, and if so, let me know!

Just a little post rounding up some of my favourite things for Valentine’s Day! I know some people either love or hate this day because they think it’s overrated and overpriced. Ultimately, I really like the day of love. February 14th is in the dead …
So as many of you have seen on my Instagram feed, I am completely in love with this jacket. My mother bought it for me for Christmas off my Gift Guide For Her (so sneaky!) and really, it was a home run for me. I have not stopped wearing it. I think part of it is that we’re having an unusually mild winter, and part of it is that I’m learning how to dress appropriately for certain things.
For example — does anyone else hate absolutely sweating in their coats when they’re grocery shopping? I know I do. I also hate bringing my jacket into a shopping mall with me, because either I overheat, or I’m left carrying a big heavy coat around on my arm. Well, this jacket has really solved that for me. When you think about it, you’re just running from your car into a heated building and back. Why dress like you’re going on a huge long outdoor walk?
This jacket works for me because while it is quite warm, it’s extremely lightweight. Like, it literally weighs nothing. And I love that! It’s such a nice difference between being bogged down with a million layers. And I continue to grab it as I’m running out the door because it’s such an easy piece to throw on.
I also love the colour. It’s so fresh for Winter and it’ll transition me into early Spring as well. Here in Canada, the weather can be really unpredictable until practically May so I know I’m going to continue to get my use out of this jacket!
While this coat is fully priced at $130CAD it’s currently marked down to $59CAD with an additional 20% off when you add it to your cart! I can’t recommend this jacket enough so if you’re looking for something like this, I’d snag it now!
