Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Rick Genest – Dermablend's Clever 'Go Beyond The Cover' Campaign

posted by on 25/10/2011

The ‘tattooed freak’ as many people love to call him. I don’t know his story and neither do you so we have no right to pass such judgement. Anyhow, his tattoos do scare me slightly with all the symbology and darkness. Ever wondered what he looked like before all the tattoos? Well Dermablend have teamed up with him to promote their professional coverage cosmetics which covers up all his tattoos with a natural skin tone. Crazy. He looks different, a stone cold looking human being. Makes me wonder what his story is, what led him to do this to his body? Dermablend make full use of this with a clever viral video. Watch this on the reverse.

The Skin I Live In | Film Review

posted by on 25/10/2011

Admittedly, I am a film geek and proud of it. I watch many different types of film but am always particularly taken by the independent ones that tend to push the boundaries of thought because they are not restricted by all that Hollywood stuff. Every now and again I watch an independent film that blows my mind. The type of film that sticks in your head for days after watching it.The Skin I live In starring Antonio Banderas and directed by the Spanish genius Pedro Almodovar is an example, hence my need to write about it. I contemplated not writing about it because the film was quite disturbing. To be honest it took me a few days to actually process what I saw! But I know you Y&Y readers appreciate visual appeal, creative flair and artistic direction. Check the review after the jump

Steve Jobs | 60 Mintues

posted by on 25/10/2011

Before the untimely death of Steve Jobs he gave the green light to Walter Isaacson to capture and tell the story of his life. Although already ill Jobs wanted to make sure that an accurate and honest account of his story would be told, including the saw memories of his childhood (Jobs was adopted as a child). The two part show gives the audience a chance to see what it was that made this man so successful and an insight into what Isaacson had to do to get the book done. Many will find this inspirational and some will discover things about Jobs that they never thought would be true, but it’s all of these things that make the man who he is and we should all just appreciate his genius. Watch the show after the cut.

Individualism's Sins of Style Party – 27th October

posted by on 24/10/2011

Our East London neighbors over at Individualism are hosting a Halloween ‘Sins of Style‘ party this week, it’s one not to miss out on! After 2 successful style-themed nights over the summer, this one looks set to challenge a lot of sartorially forward people with the task of dressing like they never usually would. It’s going to be funny & somewhat scary seeing people out of their comfort zone but you know when the alcohol is flowing – no one is going to care about what they look like. I missed the last 2 events and this one I’ll probably arrive LATE after an evening class but who’s going to join me?! More information for y’all on the reverse.

Where Children Sleep

posted by on 24/10/2011

Children are usually reading things like Biff and Chip books whilst growing up and as positive and informative as they are, it could be argued that they’re left not knowing certain things about the real world including how fortunate they are to be reading a Biff and Chip book. ‘Where Children Sleep’ is a book that tells the story of various children from different backgrounds from around the world. Each page features a different child with photos of their bedroom; such a simple concept with very powerful connotations. Photographer James Mollison and Journalist Chris Booth set up the project and hoped that the book would help children think about inequality, within and between societies around the world, and perhaps start to figure out how, in their own lives, they may respond. On top of delivering a compelling message, James delivered some amazing shots in this book which I think makes a difference because it adds an element of quality that children’s books don’t tend to have. My point is that these could have so easily been basic sketches but they’re not. Selected photos from the book after the break.

Dope Quote #22

posted by on 24/10/2011

Okay I’m half asleep right now, been trying to discipline myself so I go to bed at 1am at the latest and wake up at 6am to get an early start. Late nights, early mornings. This quote was said in a group setting early last week by one of my friends and it really left a mark one me. It was a reality check for me as over the past few months my purpose has become more and more evident and all I’ve been doing is putting it off with work and my general busy-ness. Maybe it’s because I’m a little apprehensive about taking the risks and going ahead with this dream. It’s time to make it happen, hopefully you’ll all hear more about my dream in the next few months. Don’t hold off your dreams. It’s time to grab hold of your future by connecting your values, knowledge, passion and purpose with your dream. HAPPY MONDAY.

How To Make It In America – S02E04 Stream

posted by on 24/10/2011

Ah great start to the week with a brand new episode of How To Make It In America. Not quite as lively as last week’s episode but still pretty damn good, a few new storylines have been introduced this week. I won’t ruin it for you! let’s just say I was a little disappointment with the opening scene. They could have shot it the same way as last week’s scene, you already know which one I’m talking about. It was a glorious.
