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 […]

The Family: Randomness

posted by on 26/01/2012

I was originally going to drop this as a feature on the Henri Lloyd collection that DJB is rocking but felt it’d use it to hype up something that we have in the works. I feel sometimes the site centres around Yang, DJB and I so I’m hoping this new idea that I came up will change things. Honestly love chilling with the Y&Y family – we’ve all got such diverse backgrounds and career paths so the conversations are never dry. More on the reverse.

Our Features

posted by on 15/01/2012

Have you seen our Features section? It’s our favourite part of the site and definitely the most enjoyable to create – full of original content. We’ve released around 18 features since launching the Y&Y version 2.0 – have a gander at few of our favourites after the cut. We’ve got content ranging from interviews with Russell‘s nieces, Donald Glover to restaurant reviews to styling challenges and much much more. Hop on after the cut to see some of our favourites.

Introducing Derek

posted by on 06/01/2012

Introductions have never been as straight forward as people make out, the science behind human interactions *sigh*.  Over the years I have become an expert at predicting and sidestepping awkward encounters, the art lies in knowing when to offer a friendly yet possibly awkward embrace, a firm handshake & confident eye contact or simply a cheeky grin and a wink (The latter proving unsuccessful from personal experience).

Happy Birthday DJB!

posted by on 04/01/2012

It wouldn’t be a Y&Y birthday post if there wasn’t a little bit of exposure! Thanks for all your efforts on the site, Happy Birthday From Yin&Yang Family!

Yin – *jumps into post* sorry I had to butt in and say that I had nothing to do with the imagery in this post. You’re definitely the hardest working member of the Y&Y team, everyone knows that so I dare anyone to challenge that statement. Let’s make 2012 ours, hope you have a great day! I’ll leave you with a song – click here.

Happy New Year!

posted by on 01/01/2012

2011 was great. I’m sure 2012 will be even better. It presents us an opportunity to have a fresh start if we need one. Going to keep this one short and sweet – 2012 can be whatever you make of it. Talk less and do more. Came across this lovely bit of wisdom on Twitter via Tahirah‘Today everyone tends to forget though, that EVERY day presents the opportunity for a new start.’ Amen to that. Peace & love from the Y&Y family. We’ll be back to regular posting habits soon…

Christmas With The Y&Y Family

posted by on 26/12/2011

We’re a family. Not just a bunch of WordPress nerds who sit behind a mac all day blogging away – we actually do meet up once in a while. Honestly, the family is so diverse, we have developers, designers, writers, critics, music aficionados, marketing execs and more. What brings us together? Our love for London and it’s booming creative culture. It’s been a glorious year, bring on 2012 already – time to up the game with the relaunch. New content coming your way! Hope on after the cut to peep a few hilarious photographs of the family.

Currently in the process of changing hosts. It’s been a long time coming, better to get it done sooner rather than later. Having a few issues with DNS and old hosting etc, will get back to regular updates as soon it’s all fixed. Follow our twitter for regular updates @yinnyangtweets

Happy 21st Birthday Yang

posted by on 05/08/2011

*cries* Welcome to adulthood. Hope you have an awesome blessed birthday! in fact I hope you’ve taken a day off to enjoy your birthday properly and I know you’re like me when it comes to birthdays ‘just another day’. This year I realised its much more than that. I’m not going to get emo and sentimental in this post, I’ll save that for another time. I actually tried to get in touch with Alexandra Burke‘s people but bleugh, I got aired nicely. Only you will know the photograph I used above, look closely haha. HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY!

Before we start, I recommend you read my post from last year –  click here. Adulthood has slapped me straight in the face in the last 2 months. I believed last year was my coming of age, quite funny how wrong I was. I feel I’ve grown up a lot since then, clearly changed my perception of the world and direction. My outlook on life is a hell of a lot different. Goals? Still the same. More on the reverse.
