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 […]

Y&Y 30 Seconds | Tahirah

posted by on 16/07/2012

Tahirah’s easily one of the most inspiring, most positive people in my life. She’ll bring a smile to your face even at the lowest of times and heck, we haven’t even spoken about how gifted she is. Her writing skills are something else but you should already know that from her posts. Get to know her after the cut. We’ve teamed up with Tandy of MadTatter Films who’s worked his magic on these videos; really capturing the essence of each family member. Also shout out to BKRY for hooking us with a dope sample! Summer vibes (we need it in the UK).

posted by on 12/07/2012

At Nike’s British 10K, amongst 25,000 other runners, our Versus challenge came to a great finale this Sunday as Cool Runnings (Derek, Candice and I) represented for Y&Y against the Control The Riot crew for the title of ‘Coolest Bloggers Who Can Sort-of Run Too’. The winning team, Control The Riot, summed up their race experience in a brilliant post here. However, we all felt like winners for reasons more than running. Read on to find out why.

Stockholm Syndrome

posted by on 20/06/2012

Last weekend, I made an escape at out of London with my other half and a few friends. We headed to the capital of Sweden, Stockholm; where nearly everyone’s blonde, tall and good-looking. I was impressed from the get-go by simple mechanisms such as escalators that only work when people step on and wi-fi and plug points on trains. Basic additions that would better our life.

Three Hundred & Sixty Five

posted by on 13/06/2012

Today marks my 365th day of full-time employment. University seems like a mere distant memory, I still have moments when I have to pinch myself to realise where I am now, a fully fledged adult and definitely loving every minute of it. Considering the present climate, I’m very thankful to have this job. A lot of blessings, more on the reverse.

Y&Y 30 Seconds | Eniola

posted by on 05/06/2012

I don’t think Eniola needs much of an introduction, most of you should know who she is! I remember when she first emailed asking to join Y&Y – it was at 3am, I was up watching a concert – had to double-take on my phone when I saw her name. First came across her in 2007 when she scored against my beloved Arsenal in the FA Premier League final in ’06. Hop on after the cut to find out more about Eni!

VERSUS | Announcement – British 10k Challenge

posted by on 29/05/2012

A few weeks back, Felix, an old friend of mine from Staffordshire University hit me up with an interesting proposal. He’s the founder of London-lifestyle site, Control The Riot, who also happens to be running the British 10k. You know we’re this is going right? Yep a challenge, my initial answer was ‘no’. Why? The same old, I’m Indian and we don’t do competitive sport. (except Cricket and I don’t like that sport either) Continues on the reverse.

Y&Y 30 Seconds | DJB

posted by on 28/05/2012

BEFORE you click play, you have to read my introduction. For a while Yang and I have felt the site has been too focused on ourselves and that’s how Y&Y 30 seconds was born – to shed more light on the Y&Y family. We’ve teamed up with Tandy of MadTatter Films who’s worked his magic on these videos; really capturing the essence of each member. Also shout out to BKRY for hooking us with a dope sample! Summer vibes. I don’t think he needs much of an introduction, we’re going to kick start 30 Seconds with Y&Y’s main man – the one and the only, DJB. Hop on after the cut.

Levi's Flagship Store Launch – Paris

posted by on 14/05/2012

What a week, I am knackered. You all have probably noticed through our other social channels (FB and Twitter) that DJB and I headed down to Paris for a very special launch. The good folks at Levi’s Strauss Europe invited us down to the launch of their new flagship store on one of the city’s most prestigious roads, Champs-Élysées. I can’t pronounce that title with a French accent, end up saying Champ Ellesee haha. We bumped into London-based style enthusiasts on the Eurostar, Aaron and Martell of Individualism who happened to be going to the same event. More on the reverse.
