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 […]

Louis Vuitton 2012 Spring/Summer Lookbook

posted by on 14/12/2011

Winter has stepped it up a notch here in London over the last few days but this doesn’t stop us salivating over future summer purchases. Although this Louis Vuitton 2012  Spring/Summer collection doesn’t exactly fill me with that tingling sensation, I can still enjoy little bits of it. Little bits such as the leather jacket showcased in the picture directly above this text, now that is something that gets my juices flowing. I’m tentatively love  with this jacket, I say tentatively because I’d need to see it up close and personal before fully professing my love. The rest of the lookbook doesn’t scream WOW to me, it’s just ok and I’m not feeling the grainy pictures either. They should be glossier! Take a look for yourself and let me know what you think.

Dope Quote #30

posted by on 12/12/2011

I came across this quote via my fellow post modernist Indian brother @stylecupidblog on Twitter. Identity is a major issue with many these days and one of the main causes? The media, internet and all that jazz. We’re constantly being fed information and images of what and who we’re meant to look/act like. We live in a celebrity obsessed society, let’s face it we’ve all looked up to someone in the media limelight at some point in our lives. Don’t let the idolisation make you lose sight of who you are, just be yourself. Remove that mask before it’s too late. Otherwise you might end up in regretting not being YOU in the future.

Rio De Janeiro | Picture Recap

posted by on 12/12/2011

Last week, I landed in Heathrow after a long 11 hour flight back from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and wanted to jump right back on the plane and go back! After spending 6 days in the city that Brazilians name “Cidade Maravilhosa” (Marvellous city), I am pretty convinced that it is now my favorite city in the world. Mountains, beautiful beaches, rainforests, lagoons, great weather, great food, beautiful people and a vibrant football culture are all aspects of Rio that instantly left an impression on me. The purpose of my visit was to attend and speak about global women’s football matters at  the annual Soccerex convention, which is a trade show dedicated to the businesses in football around the world. With the excitement in the air about the forthcoming 2014 world cup and 2016 Olympics hosted in Brazil, it was a great time to visit the land where football runs in the veins.

Converse 2011 'Outsider' Collection

posted by on 12/12/2011

Converse serve a visual for their winter range, the lookbook is called ‘Outsider‘ and it features a great mixture of classic and more modern Converse models. Built to withstand the snow and keep your feet warm, these boots come sporting a tough build, stronger gripping heels so you don’t slip and thick cord laces. I love the shoot because of it’s youthful exuberance, it’s a really playful shoot that represents the brand and it’s ideal audience. Best thing about the lookbook is the location, it’s a Christmas-ey shoot which is obviously fitting for the season. There is a lot going on in the lookbook which tells a story but I like how the focus is still on the shoes, personal favourites include the brown leather boots with the cream sole. Lookbook after the break.

Yin Eats: Simply Thai

posted by on 10/12/2011

Woi. I’m back. Actually shot this a few days ago but haven’t had a chance to post. You’ve probably noticed the lack of posts from me in the past few days, that’s mainly down to work chaos and my girlfriend leaving the country till new year so spent time with her, as you do. So I challenged myself to explore the Great Portland St/Goodge St area for new lunch spots every 2-3 days and I came across this mini market spot near Goodge St. More on the reverse.

Grand Theft Auto III Coming To iOS

posted by on 09/12/2011

I’m not much of a gamer anymore, who’s got time for games! But when I do, I will end up playing Vice City…still. Yes because it’s a classic and that is why I was  thrilled to hear that I could get Grand Theft Auto 3 on my iPhone soon! Grand Theft Auto is one of the best game series’ known to man, I hope Vice City will be available soon! I know the graphics will be crusty and iPhone battery life will half but it will still make for a great addition to my apps. The 10th Anniversary version will be available for purchase from the app store next week and will be compatible with iPhone 4, 4s and 4th generation iTouch. Watch the trailer after the break.

Maverick Sabre 'Lonely Are The Brave' Album Sampler

posted by on 09/12/2011

Back in January Brady wrote a piece on 5 up and coming UK artists (see here), this piece featured Mr Maverick Sabre. 11 months later and not only has Mav released two hit singles and become a Y&Y homie but he is readying the release of his debut album. With the February 6th 2012 release date looming Sabre fans have been treated to a sneak preview of the forthcoming album courtesy of this album sampler *side note -I really like the fact that the sampler is interactive and allows you to select which song you want to hear*. Maverick will be going on tour in March to support the album so make sure y’all grab your tickets now before they sell out. I have no doubt that I and possibly other members of the Y&Y family will be in attendance. Until then please enjoy the sampler on the flipside.
