Strawberry Lips

Top tips from Abby Nurock

Abby Nurock’s 5 Tips:

1) Don’t give up on what you want- believe in your worth

2) Don’t let people discourage you or dishearten you

3) If a gig goes badly, pick yourself up and try again… everyone has bad days

4) Respect your fellow DJ’s- everyone has worked hard to be where they are.

5) Don’t be arrogant… humility will get you to where you need to be!

10 Things people don't know about me:

1) Im a jewellery designer/manufacturer and have a workshop from where I hand make and create unique pieces on a daily basis.

2) Im a yoga fanatic and every morning when I get out of bed I do a headstand- its great for oxygenating your brain, keeping you young and connecting with the earth’s prana.

3) I am completely obsessed with cats, particularly my own two, Theodore and Viola

4) I love to hike and try do a big hike once a year. Hikes I’ve done so far are Kilimanjaro, Everest Base Camp, Fish River Canyon, The Otter Trail, The Leopard Trail to name a few and next year we are planning on hiking through Ethiopia.

5) I love to dive… being underwater is a form of escapism for me and I am obsessed with sharks. (when Im diving, not when I’m swimming;))

6) I speak French as a second language

7) My favourite pastime is searching for shells when I’m at the coast. When my family and I go to Plettenberg Bay, searching for Pansy shells at low tide is my version of heaven.

8) I used to be in advertising and was an art director

9) I am very spiritual and love reading books on metaphysics, energy and holistic healing

10) I spend ALL of my money on vinyl… (totally unapologetically)
