From Top to Bottom…starting off with some china town poor little crabbies..I noticed them from across the street because of their beautiful colour and it looked like they had eyes on their backs.
The second photo is the supreme queue which we did not join but I thought it was befitting next to the picture of the crabs so wanted to get a photo, I spoke to the security guy and he said it’s always like that! nuts!
I know I wear this pink jacket too much…I do totally have other jackets but its warm and it is too rad to put away just yet.
We watched the sunset at the empire state building which was nice :).
We saw soo many good skate spots here, but we only got to skate like once cos I got really sick (as in ill not as in rad) . We had a really nice session at the L.E.S skatepark which I really recommend going to it has a good and quirky mixture of street and transition. If I lived in NY I would skate there all the time.
Me trying to get some good luck at the good luck car service.
Another view from the sunset at Empire state ^_^
A pretty cup of tea at this Italian restaurant that had tiny but delicious portions of pasta, we sat opposite this old guy who was really rude to the waiter and was banging on about working with Taylor Swift. It was the waiters first shift and he was really slow and awkward.
I really wanted to try this spangly tourist hat on and I actually kind like it.
Hat Mark 2, not as good as the 1st one?
Top points for people who know where this is and why I was happy to see it!
Some of my accessories.
I am the type of person that likes to have big clear outs…Buuut that dosen’t stop me having love for my old stuff and also having favourite items which I love the feel of or just can’t seem to want to give to the charity shop just yet and so it is good to find ways to update these items so that you feel all fresh and new again ^_^.
One of my favourite things to do and this is especially a good thing to do in summer which is slowly coming I promise, is cut old (or sometimes new) t-shirts into crops.
Get out your once favourite tees lurking at the back of your closet…and cut them all up..you will not regret this, high waisted jeans and a crop=winner whatever your shape or size! You are going to look banging (aka great)!
p.s this is a holiday park in Cornwall..not a trailer park….no offence to trailer parks :).
Here is one i did just today 🙂 and another from my summer in Malmö Sweden.
If you like this and you want to do it yourself. I recommend putting the tshirt on and measuring it to where you want it to be before cutting as you could end up with a seriously short tee otherwise!
Just get a pair of scissors and carefully cut a straight line all the way around and then pinch the fabric and run your fingers right around where you cut to get rid of that jagged egde and curl it up a little.
I recently had a photoshoot for the cover of Plymouth student magazine along with with Lucien Harris along with an interview as well. We basically just went mad and put all the clothes on at once and then danced around and took some photos. It was really fun and here is the cover with artwork by me :).
Aaand more importantly we also got a few skate photos too 🙂 which you can see by going on my instagram @stefaninurdingxx or picking up a copy somewhere locally :).
I picked up this cute pink jacket yesterday at a thrift store and added one of my donut patches which I purchased from Etsy last week but I think Ill probably add more patches and go a bit cray cray customizing it.
The leggings are Sweaty Betty and I LOVE LOVE the pink bottoms of them as well as the sheer fabric around the knees.
My socks and jewellery are just from my huge collection of these things.
My hooded top is Animal and my shoes are Vans Old Skool High tops.
My skateboard is Polar and I did the grip job myself with some bright pink grip I got in US at the Vans skatepark in Orange.
So me and Pete Drew have been out looking around for spots lately and just generally hanging out, Im looking forward to shooting some skating with him.
Here I am wearing an outfit that I would probably not wear to skate street but that is perfect for cruising around or skating ramp..or not skating at all..whatever you are into :).
Shorts are Forever 21 and they have a super cute frill around the edge. Jacket is River Island but is super old and leather so is worn in really nicely.
My nail polish is the pink but Rita Ora for Rimmel.
My wheels are Welcome and my board is Polar.
My shades are Toyshades which can be found in Topshop on Oxford Street.
My tshirt is a super old Santa Cruz tshirt.

Charlotte Thomas came to my hometown Plymouth last weekend, we dressed up and she took some fashion snaps and we went skateboarding. Projects in the pipeline with Sidewalk skateboard magazine.

For one of our last Modules of the year, fashion through the lens Valentine Greenough and I worked on a photoshoot based on Man V’s Nature. We took the theme and decided to make our magazines about healthy living and anti mass production. Here is one of the shots we ended up with. There are many more but just a sneak preview ;).
