Come Join Us @ Loop of the Loom!



There is a BIG chance that The Bird and The Worm will be taking fashion classes at Loop of the Loom , which is basically a weaving studio that teaches people, well, how to weave and make clothes! Starting September 13, 2009 there will be 3 different types of classes available for teens ranging from ages 12-18. The 3 different types of classes includes a fashion sewing class for beginners, a fashion illustration/design class [ ;) which would be the class The Bird and The Worm possibly might be joining], and a fashion workshop. The instructor is Sarah Boom: email: ilovefashionschool87@gmail.com: phone number: 212-722-2686. There is more information about these classes and registration on the website. The address of Loop of the Loom is: 227 East 87th Street, NYC (between 2nd & 3rd Aves.)


Just some of the things they make at the studio!

Hope you all come and join the "loop!"

The Bird and The Worm @ Make NYC

After our trip to the yoga studio, we took a stroll down memory lane and revisited our childhood place....... MAKE! Make (formally known as Our Name is Mud) is a pottery studio where children and adults can choose and paint different things including mugs, bowls, plates, and a lot of other fun things! It's really a great place to spend time with friends or family members. The price of the paint and the object isn't too bad, and the best part is that you have fun doing it!

While the Bird was making a very cute, pastel colored bowl... The Worm was making a bubble concoction consisting of paint, soap, and water. Although the bubble printing was a complete fail due to the mess created :/, we had a lot of fun doing it! After you receive your receipt, you can go home with the satisfaction of being able to pick your glossy, painted object a week later!

Love,
The Bird and The Worm

The Bird and the Worm @ New York Yoga

Today, we decided to go to New York Yoga to practice our yoga skills and to relax once more before the vacation ends. Like many other yoga places in NYC, there are different classes that practice different types of yoga including Vinyasa and Bikram. However, unlike many of the other yoga places we've explored, this specific yoga studio doesn't ask for membership to relax, or "open up your heart." At this studio, you could just pop in and for the price of $23, you could experience an hour and a half of full tranquility.

If you've practiced yoga/would like to, you should really try going to this studio. Who doesn't enjoy relaxing?

Namaste,
The Bird and the Worm

P.S. There is one studio on 86th and York and a Bikram (hot yoga) studio on 85th and Lexington.

The Bird and The Worm ♥ Owl City


Owl City's newest album (Ocean Eyes) was released July 14th. And their song "Fireflies" was even featured as a free single of the week on Itunes. Owl City is mostly a one man show, but occasionally has back up from other singers. The man behind this all is Adam Young. Their first music video came out on July 20th, with the song "Fireflies". Personally, I love Owl City but it depends on what genre of music you like. His music is categorized as "electronic". So, just give it a listen.

With Lovee,
The Bird.

Can't Get Enough of Nylon


I recently bought the new issue of Nylon while I was in local drug store, and I love it! It has bits and pieces of everything in the new September 2009 issue (the tv issue). On the cover is Anna Paquin (True Blood), and inside the magazine includes many new styles, "the look," makeup ideas and inspirations, and a whole lot of television (The Revolution Will Be Television p. 166)! There are also pictures of Jessica Szohr, and she looks amazing.

I recommend you all buy this month's issue of Nylon!
