Too Long

Top - Tees by Tina via Baubles || Skirt - c/o eShakti || Clutch - Manchester Shoe Salon || Necklace - Stella & Dot || Earrings - Beck & Boosh || Shoes - Old Navy || Watch - Michael Kors

Happy 2017!  I am so happy to finally be back with a blog post.  It has been way too long.  Finishing up my masters has completely taken over everything but in the spring I will be back full force.  Only one more course to go!  So for now, I will post when I can but I am super excited to be back blogging more regularly.  You can always follow along on instagram (@sighgushgasp) for more frequent posts.

Today I am so happy to be showing you this skirt from eShakti.  They are a great website that allows you to customize your clothing - length, sleeve style, etc.  I personally love them because it allows me to make sure my skirt lengths are just right and that everything fits perfectly!  This skirt is now going to be on regular rotation in my closet, totally in love with it!  Plus it has pockets, enough said. 

Here are a few of my favorites from their site:
-  Have you seen their simple, yet so perfect, boat neck knit top?  So verstaile and could be worn through all seasons.  Could I have one in every colour, please?
- eShakti now makes jeans!  For a tall girl like me this is a dream come true!  I can now order jeans that have a long enough inseam.  I am loving these skinny jeans in indigo.
-And how cute is this asymmetrical hem dress?  Great for work and will take you from winter to spring!

 Plus use the code: sighgaspes to get 10% off when you shop at - valid from 01/07/2017 -   02/11/2017.

Goodbye Summer

Dress - Pink Stitch || Necklace - J.Crew via EBay || Shoes - Sole Society || Sunnies - Maui Jim || Watch - Michael Kors

This time of year starts to mark the end of summer.  The temps start dropping and back to school shopping is in full force.  I love summer so much but it is always so short.  This dress (which I purchased last summer) has been amazing!  It is so great for those warm days (which we have had a lot of this summer, yay!) and is the perfect combination of pulled together and comfy.  So with the long weekend upon us - goodbye summer, until next time....

Glamour Secrets: Give & Take

From now until September 23rd Glamour Secrets is hosting its 10th annual give and  take hair appliance trade in event.  All used hair appliances that are donated will benefit local women's charities and shelters.  You can bring in your gently used hair appliances (curling irons, flat irons, hair dryers, etc.) to any Trade Secret/Glamour Secret location in Canada.  To thank you for your donation, you can take 50% off select hair appliances in store.  It doesn't matter what you trade in, for example if you bring in a used curling iron, you do not have to buy a curling iron, you can buy a flat iron if you want.  Here are a few of the hair appliances you can purchase during this event:

I think this campaign is an amazing way to give back.  I was so happy to be able to stop by Glamour Secrets in Champlain Place in Moncton last week.  I donated two curling irons that I no longer use and purchased a new flat iron as mine had stopped working.  

This campaign is all about women helping women.  The Dieppe location is hoping to double the amount of hair appliances they donate to women's shelters this year.  

"Year after year our clients tell us how much they love the cause.  Many have appliances in drawers at home they haven't used for a while," explains Clinton Davis, co-owner of Glamour Secrets Dieppe.  "Even clients who don't necessarily need new appliances still come and donate their used ones."

It was such a pleasure to meet Saly and Clinton Davis, the owners of Glamour Secrets Dieppe.   They have a wonderful location with lovely staff.  Also, while you are there making a donation don't forget to stock up on any hair essentials or to book your next salon appointment as they offer full salon services.  

Thank you to Glamour Secrets Dieppe for having me!  I can't wait to come back next time I am in Moncton.  And if you are in the Moncton area, be sure to stop by with your donations!

Last week uptown Saint John saw a wonderful new addition open up.  Lordon opened in the former Birks location.  This boutique replaces Silver Daisy that was located on King Street.  This posh boutique is a must stop for any fashionista.  And it's safe to say I want one of everything in store!

Not only do they carry beautiful clothes but they also now have a bit of lingerie and a small selection
of lotions and creams.  Every little detail of this store is perfection!  

How gorgeous are those watches?!?!?

Congrats to Kate and her team on this wonderful addition to the uptown!  I can't wait to go back to shop!  Stop by next time you are uptown!  Be sure to tag your photos of your purchases with #ohmylordon.  Happy shopping!

Jumpsuit & Necklace - c/o Giant Tiger || Bracelet - c/o Beck & Boosh || Shoes - Nine West || Sunnies - Coach || Watch - Michael Kors

I am so excited to be part of Beck & Boosh's #beunique campaign this month!  Each month Beck & Boosh select two ladies to highlight in their #beunique campaign.   To sign up for future ‪#‎BeUnique‬ spotlights email a picture of yourself wearing your favorite jewelry to and tell them why you would want to be a part of their Be Unique Campaign. To check out more details on the campaign, click here:  Also be sure to stop by their Facebook page to check out the spotlight on myself and the lovely Krista.  The bracelet I am wearing above is also on sale for $14 all week if you'd like to get one for yourself.

Also can we just take a minute for this jumpsuit.  Is it wrong that something that makes me feel so pulled together, feels as comfortable as pyjamas?  This jumpsuit is from the Lily Morgan line at Giant Tiger.  I picked this up at the grand opening of their St. Stephen location back in June (see post here).  The pieces in the Lily Morgan line are so beautiful and have so many fun colours/patterns.  They were definitely my favorite when browsing the store.  I will be heading back to Giant Tiger to do some back to school shopping.  What comfy pieces are your favorite?

Thank you to Giant Tiger for sponsoring this post.  All views expressed above are my own.

Top - InPursuit || Jeans - Target || Necklace - J.Crew || Bag - Oemi Baby || Watch - Michael Kors || Shoes - c/o Sole Society || Belt - Olsen Europe

How adorable is this YSJ tee?  I love this shirt so much!  I always gets tons of compliments on it.  Be sure to visit the big pink truck here in SJ to get one of your own or you can always order online at!  Love my boyfriend jeans and graphic tees for rainy days.

And can we just talk about this bag for a minute.  I am totally in love!  My last baby bag was in desperate need of being replaced as I used it for 2 years with my first and for the first year with my little guy.  I was so excited when I won this bag from Oemi baby in their Mother's day giveaway on Instagram.  The leather is super high quality and there is tons of room!  Lots of great little pockets to fit everything for you and baby.  I have this packed with everything I need for a day out with my little guy as well as everything for me and there is still extra room!  Another great thing about Oemi is that they are based in Toronto.  I love being able to support Canadian companies.  I will be carrying this bag long after my little ones are grown.  If you are looking for a diaper bag I highly recommend this one!
