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 […]

Wellness with Technogym

posted by on 16/12/2013

Last month I visited an office utopia. Perched happily on exercise balls, the staff cooked up innovation for hours in their eco-friendly office spaces, basked in natural light. They broke from their creating for a one-hour workout in their lux, on-site gym before eating ridiculously cheap, natural and locally sourced food in their canteen for another hour and ended their break bonding over cappuccino and fuse-ball. Then I woke up flew home. Yes, my friends.  This place exists. This place was the Wellness Village in Cescena, Italy – Technogyms HQ. Read on to find out more.

Lacoste L!VE Pétanque Tournament

posted by on 29/09/2013

What happens when France’s biggest lux-sports brand give a bunch of hipsters an open space and a set of balls? Lots of laughter, ball-tekkers, tense competition and a whole lot of trash-talk. On Thursday 26th September Y&Y took part in Lacoste UK’s first ever L!VE Pétanque Tournament. Joined by the teams behind many of London’s top fashion and lifestyle sites, we were competing against each other from outside of our comfort zones – so not from behind our laptops or at an image-hipster event – to celebrate the launch of the LACOSTE L!VE LAB collection. Read on to see how we threw it down (literally) and came a very respectable second-place.

We’ll Be Back

Yin&Yang We'll Be Back

So we’ve been hinting at something here and there for a while now. You may have noticed from the lack of original content as of late that we’ve been preparing for a change – all will be revealed in just over a month’s time. It’s definitely taking Y&Y in a slightly different direction to what it is now; quoting our resident wordsmith Tahirah - ‘We don’t just curate the cool, we create it’. That should give you a clear picture of what’s to come! When we started Y&Y 3 years ago Yang and I just wanted to talk about what we liked, little did we know that would be the cause of an issue over time. Covering EVERYTHING and anything makes it difficult to keep up to date with it all. Over the years we’ve refined, grown and tailored Y&Y into a more sleek offering rather than just talking about everything, you can certainly see our personal interests and life growth that has influenced it all. More on the reverse.

Fuel Challenge | FuelStory: Yang

fuelband 5

I’m a newbie to these Nike Fuel bands, but doing the Nike Fuel Challenge has encouraged me to make a few small changes throughout my day and I do not mean waving my arms about at every opportunity!! My activity over the last few days has been quite varied; between working, going to the gym, chilling at home and Azonto’ing on Friday night; I would say the latter raked in the most points.

Fuel Challenge | FuelStory - Yin

As part of the Fuel Challenge, I thought it’d be a good idea to document a day in our lives to see what we actually get up to and how many points we rack up. Obviously I’m sure both of us have been putting a bit more effort into walking up the stairs instead of taking the bus/stairs. The sad thing is, I’ve averaged a fairly decent amount for the past 4 days but I know for sure that today’s total will be less than 2000. Home day, family business to cater to. Sigh.

Yin vs Yang | Nike Fuel Challenge

Nike Fuel Challenge Yin vs Yang

Uh oh, there’s nothing like a bit of healthy competition to kick start the year. For years both of us have yearned to get fit and healthy, you know 6 packs and all but it’s never happened due to our excuses. The past few months have seen us become a little bit more fitness orientated and the good folks at Nike have given us a pair of FuelBands to see which one of us comes out on top. Bare in mind that both our jobs require us to be sat around a computer for most part of the day and outside of work, we run Y&Y. More time in front of the computer (I would say Mac but he uses Windows!), yay! for us. More on the reverse.
