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.

 

Please Just Crop It…


11852906_418026945057776_1219954671_oI 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 :).

This is a cute idea for a fur coat, Miu Miu style ring and sunglasses from my mind but inspired a bit from Versace.

PARK FOOTAGE

One night at Junkyard Helena Bliss another UK skate girl and I had a mess around skating a little and talking and she took some photos of me on her new camera. I didn’t have my board with me so the board and the awesome grip tape are both done by her, can’t wait for her to do mine :).

This week I have decided to have a whole week off Social media…sounds a bit lame I know…but if you are anything like me you will just quickly check when you wake up, think about it a little and check again over your morning coffee and generally check it without even thinking probably over 20 times a day…maybe even more.

Im hoping to get some better ideas for some personal projects and try to let go of the idea of posting things straight to instagram and get some more inspiration and add more time and effort to my artwork and stories, a little more focus on the creative side of things :)). Looking forward to it.

I’d be interested to know if other people feel too distracted by having a smart phone and weather other people have decided to sign out for a while?

Let me know in the comments section below….
