Beware of Jeremy Bernard, "Massage Therapist"

Dear Ladies and Gents,

I write to you in concern. I recently received the following email with a promise of work only to discover it was a scam. I know you are all smart enough to avoid things that are too good to be true but it can't hurt to get his name out there, in the google sphere. 

Thank you ABMP for posting an email from this online predator. He has moved on from Massage Therapists to yoga teachers but his message and format remains the same.

My client's name is Ms Raphaelle Bregal, A model here in France who will be needing some Yoga session when she arrives America...She will be coming to the U.S in 2 weeks time for a modeling job and will be residing in your Area temporarily until the necessary arrangement for her job has been made before she leaves.

She will be needing 1hr Yoga session per day, 3 Sessions per week for 6 weeks. Ms Bregal, asked me to come with her to America but i told her i would not be able to go with her as i have a course i will be going for in a week time and also because i do not know much about Yoga, so i promised to help her get a good Yoga practitioner in your Area..

Pls tell me a little more about your self, how long have you been a Yoga practitioner? Would you be able to provide her with the Yoga sessions from the 24th of  this Month to the 10th of June, 3 Sessions per week for 6 weeks?

I need you to get back to me with the amount you charge per session and also let me know if she can pay you with a Certified check drawn from a US bank?

Mid-February Spring?!

Is it just me or something is up with the climate? We're we warned about something like this? (Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, I know Mum.)
It's February 21st in New York and Daffodils & crocuses are blooming! What I up with that?

Christmas Tubular Scarves

Just a quick post to showcase my latest project I made as a Christmas gift for my Mother-in-Law. I'm also working on another one for my Mum which I'll post later with more details about the pattern - I'm still ironing out the kinks.

I hope you had a fantastic holiday and I look forward to more blogging in 2012.

Archie Comics Kid Day at Midtown Comics NYC

 It was Archie Comics Kid Day at Midtown Comics on Fulton. For the occasion we made Archie T-shirts using iron on dark t-shirt transfers from Target.
The organisers liked them enough to put them on their Twitter Page @midtowncomics and on @archiecomics.

Lots of Fun!

Surya Design

Science educator, Yoga teacher and model in between

"Beauty, sensibility and style, inspired by the mysterious Asian culture of ancient times"

This quote describes the beautiful  Surya Design collection by Olia Saunders which I got to model and pose for. 
Olia Saunders is a New York based graphic designer, photographer and avid yoga practitioner. This collection blends her love of beauty and her respect for the Vedic Culture. 

It was quite thrilling to be photographed by a professional, you know, someone behind the camera that doesn't use cheese as a smile inducer. Here's 3 pictures from the shoot :

Olia has foud shirt models (2 for men, 2 for women) on sale for the time being, you can find them here. Every shirt that is purchased brings her closer to her goal and will allow her build up her online store. 

Enjoy the presence of the Hindu sun deity, Surya, by owning your very own shirt!

Do you think shirts are boring?

You won't anymore, not after watching this video!


How creative can you get with a shirt?
This video is incredible. I'm no model but I will try some of these looks and share the results.
Do you think it's wearable? We shall see.
