Noordinaryshe is here to help me formally document looks that I create, otherwise known as ‘taking my pleasure seriously’ and also to inspire every one of you on everyday styling, fashion trend, beauty and shopping tips and how to maximise your wardrobe collection. I would have to confess at this point that I love bargains and do most of my shopping when prices are a bit friendlier…
Two days ago I was In London to for a workshop to Launch a new collection of watches by Olivia Burton. The ‘Time is Precious’ collection made with Rose quartz crystals. I was thrilled by the sheer elegance of this time piece. It’s hard not to be smitten by anything made in a rose gold tone. Absolutely gorgeous and priceless piece and I’ll tell you why. Apparently (What I learnt from the Workshop) Rose quarts crystals helps you connect with your inner peace and also helps you find love. Basically this means that having this crystal around keeps you feeling happy and fulfilled… now thats the magic of having this piece on you. I’ll be treasuring mine for a long time to come.
There was tons of other bloggers present at this workshop and it was an honour meeting them all. After the workshop we had the most elegant dinner ever. My outfit for the day was a 2 piece pink suit accessorised with a bold pair of earrings and the cutest basket bag I have so far. I kept things simple by pairing my outfit with trainers cause I knew it was meant to be a casual event. So basically I was dressy but casual at the same time. Win Win!
ADIDAS trainers are simply a way of life. To me it is like owning a Pair of jeans… it’s a necessity! There is no limit to what you can conjure up with these classics. Don’t even ask how long I’ve had my pair for because it’s been such a bloody long time. But the good news is that just like wine the older it gets the better it becomes. You just can’t knock out a good ‘ol Adidas trainers no matter how hard you try.
This week I wore them 3 times and in 3 different ways. I love how it makes your outfit look relaxed even when technically it is not. It’s cool to have a piece that effortlessly simplifies things for you without losing taste.
So guys another thing I’m obsessing over this season are earrings. I’m collecting so many earrings now I’m beginning to fear I might have more earrings than shoes and you know what that means if you know I have a massive thing for shoes. Earrings are the rave at the moment and I’m absolutely loving it. The only frustrating thing for me in finding the perfect pair is that most stores stock more of tassel-like styles and I’m kind of over that. Not that I won’t wear them but I’m more keen on other styles for now. So when I find pieces that have nothing to do with tassels I’m instantly drawn to it.
I got theses tear drop ones I’m currently wearing from Zara and oh my… I’m madly in love! It’s white, it’s bold and daring absolute stunner! I think because they are white they will be very versatile. I told you I was going to be exploring my very feminine side more this Spring/Summer… How am I doing?
DENIM is one of everyone’s favourite thing in the world. What’s a world without it? What is very exciting this spring is that they come in numerous colours nowadays See (HERE).When it comes to going all out we know all about the blue denim on blue denim on blue denim, very much a classic but now we want something different, we want more.
Bright coloured ones are the way to go these days. They sometimes even come with matching Skirts or pants… I think they are so cool! So to move ahead with time I have gone ahead to Jazz up my collection and gotten myself this red number from Topshop. Going for a different colour is a fresh way to pull off a double denim look.
Again the sunshine hasn’t failed me today so I’m in full Spring gear featuring nice round white sunglasses and my amazing basket bag (I told you I was Obsessed). Also, It looks like I have a whole street to myself so I made my self very comfortable (OFCOURSE!). With a generous amount of sunshine and a comfy chair and cool sunnies I feel like I can run the place. You can Join me if you’ve got Popcorn!
Have a great Weekend Guys. X

The truth is you can never go wrong with a onetone outfit. It is one of the chic-est things to do this spring as it has always been. My colours today are not exactly spring-y but my relaxed white shoes,crochet bag and silk skirt makes up for it. Guys I think I want to invest in as many silk-like skirts as possible. I find they are perfect for texture and colour play. For example just another cotton skirt with the same colour as my blazer would probably not have the same effect as this silk number. There is definitely something sweet and playful about silk.
I am seriously enjoying the weather right now. It comes up really sunny most days in Aberdeen which is very unusual. I’m dreading that a few weeks or maybe even days to come and its going to go down hill (like pay back time for all that Sunshine). For now I’ll just enjoy every bit of the bright skies, twirl in my silk outfits, wear lots of sandals and pretend boots and heavy coats never existed. What are your favourite go-to Spring pieces right now?

VERTICAL striped dresses have a way of making you look taller than you actually are… who would have thought? If there are a few things I would have loved to change about myself it would have been have smaller boobs and longer legs but uh if wishes were horses right? Anyway all is not lost, I’m trying day and night to lose a couple of pounds right now so that should fix the mighty boobage situation and then of course I got this gorgeous dress from zara (a long time ago actually) to make me feel like I can reach for the sky for a day. Add a few inches of heels and we quite possibly can touch the stars… It’s called positive thinking guys!

I reckon I’m overly posey in my outfit, all suited up belted up with a lot of hand pocketing going on. It doesn’t get any more posey than this however I’m not ashamed of this. I mean like these days we try yea ‘try’ to make posing look like it comes naturally to us, you know all the subtle poses on instagram like we don’t even know a camera is standing right in front of us and we are minding our business and just doing our thing, #thisisnotposingthisiseverydaylife no fuss easy peasy… Yeah Right! It is all very rehearsed. When did actual hardcore posing become so uncool?
Back in the days having one leg crossed over the other or/and placing your hands on you hips with big massive smiles and all that extra effort was cool and I suppose you only had to have the charm to back up your fun poses to make it a 100. These days you dare not show you are ‘trying so hard’ to find the right pose. On the flip side I think we trying to look less posey is the mother of ‘trying too hard’ you couldn’t imagine the amount of effort we put into looking oblivious and unaware in front of a camera… it breaks my back!
so I’m kind of putting my hands up and saying I try too hard alot so today I’m just going to take it very easy on my self and dive into the meat of posing like look in the camera, say I see you right there, my feet’s crossed and hands in my pocket I’m ready.

My recent work with EBAY getting Y’all all Spring ready! It was so much fun on set on the day of the shoot. I met pleasant and amazing people. My stylist Nil Tomakan was FIRE!!! We shared bright and colourful minds. All my pieces are from Ebay and guys the amazing thing I find about shopping on Ebay is the fact that you can just instantly score yourself the most unique priceless pieces that defines your personality without breaking the bank. You dot necessarily need to get trapped by just what the high streets have to offer helping you to express yourself freely. Having said that allow me to get you even more excited, lots of high Street shops are now on Ebay. Imagine a world where you can find just about anything Hashtag Winning!
Winter colours in spring why not! Mustard, Coffee and Cream tones,I think they were absolutely made for each other.The only thing though is that things start to get shorter and weigh much lighter from here on out. The more legs (Skin) the better. They have been in hibernation for months so I’m letting them out in flying colours. I however have one confession, during the cold months I sometimes get too lazy to moisturise my legs especially when I’m in a rush to get out of the house and I get away with it ALOT but now its one additional chore added to my daily list, I guess that’s why they say you can’t have it all. Who am I to complain after all I’ll rather have endless Sunshine than get away with dry flaky leg skin.
My outfit is a combination of shades borrowed from winter, very warm colours but they have been played down by my cute summer bag I got from Miss Selfridge recently, silver heels and the mere fact that there is definitely no heavy coats tights or socks in sight. Hello sexy pins! YASSSS!!!
