About Yes To

Two mates met while playing soccer. One dominated the field, the other had the best 'after goal' dance moves -- it was the perfect match (pun, totally intended).

Besides shaking up the field, their goal (again, intended) was to shake up the world and create a super-natural beauty line, made with fruits and veggies (yumm . . . ) that works, is guilt-free (no more breaking the bank!) and free of all the nasties (ahhh. . . so clean). It was a lofty goal but from there, Yes to was born.

Fast-forward...YES TO is now a global leader in natural beauty products, with award-winning formulas and unique collections, that can be found in over 20,000 stores (from the biggies to the mom and pops) across the world.

YES TO has gone from two captains to a team of fun-loving, wine-drinking, active-life living folks in Pasadena.

Food Review: Manfood Ale Chutney



Manfood is a new range of great tasting foods that are simply made and packed with flavour: no flavourings, no additives, no messing.

Manfood is just that: the kind of simple, great tasting food that blokes can grab out of the cupboard and enjoy with cheeses, cold cuts, pies or meat.It’s the perfect accompaniment to a fridge buffet, and a must have for your barbecue.

Created by Andre Dang, a former buyer for Harrods and Selfridges, Manfood came about as a direct result of family complaining about a lack of properly crisp, chunky pickles.

They were fed up of buying jars only to find bland, wet mush inside.

And so Andre took up the challenge to make the perfect pickle. Beginning with piccalilli, he then developed recipes for Bread and Butter Pickles, Smoked Tomato Sauce and Achar.





Our newest addition! A seasonal spiced chutney made from Cambridgeshire Victoria plums, sultanas and apples. The secret ingredient is Woodforde’s Norfolk Nog Ale.


Plums, Woodfordes Nog Ale (6.7%), apples, dark brown sugar, red wine vinegar, onion, dates, sultanas, swede, carrot, salt, ground cloves, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground allspice, yellow mustard seeds

Allergens: Yellow Mustard seed

The Manliest Scent: Wood

Forget careful combinations of spice and bergamot, leather and primrose. When a man wants to smell like a man (who wants to smell like a cologne), there is one family of scents that he should turn to: wood. It's big, hearty, and dominant. Plus, it's what our ancestors wore. Granted, the smell most likely rubbed off on them after a day spent hunting in the forest or swinging an ax in preparation for winter, but the result is basically the same, just without the sweat. So save the light, citrusy colognes for spring and summer and the spicy musks for the fall holidays. This winter, you'll want to smell like wood.

And not just because we told you to. Woody colognes are experiencing a resurgence, according to Michael Edwards, an independent fragrance consultant and enthusiast. So you should see more and better options than ever. If you're looking for someone to thank, try women. They embraced the woody perfume market in recent years (albeit with more flowers, powders, and zest of lemon), and it seems the fragrance companies listened.

Woody colognes aren't simply a matter of opportunity. There are functional benefits, too: You need less, for one thing. Only oriental fragrances are heavier than woodys, which means only orientals last longer throughout the day. That weight also means woody scents hang close to your body. The only people who smell it will be you and whoever you allow to get close to you. Which can encourage nuzzling, if that's what you're into. As with any cologne, if you have dry skin you can be a little more generous in applying a woody fragrance. Cologne molecules bond with the oils in your skin, so the less you have (of oils), the more you'll need (of cologne). Still: Be reasonable.

Of all the new(ish) woody colognes, my favorite is [1] Encounter Calvin Klein ($50.73 for 3.4 oz; amazon.com). Like most woody fragrances, Encounter is paired with a citrus top note — in this case, mandarin — resulting in a scent that's somehow still deep and boozy, with rum, cognac, and a little bit of musk. By the time Encounter dries down, you're left with a subtle cedar smell, like you slept in the attic of a mountain cabin. [2] Victorinox Swiss Army Forest ($68 for 3.4 oz; swissarmy.com) starts lighter, thanks to notes of lemon and sage, but eventually ends with the familiar hearty smell of pine. Wear it if you like Christmas. [3] Dolce & Gabbana's the One Sport ($51 for 3.3 oz; amazon.com) initially smells very fresh, like you're cooking with rosemary. After an hour, you're left with just the right level of patchouli — an amount that says you're complementing a shower, not replacing it. [4] Bulgari Man ($79 for 3.4 oz; bulgari.com) has dominant top notes of violet, but if that's not your thing, just wait. You soon get a spicy musk that smells just a bit like vanilla. This is probably what Clooney smells like when he eats ice cream. The lightest of the options I tried is [5] Nautica Aqua Rush ($65 for 3.4 oz; nautica.com), which smells a lot like sitting on the deck of a ship with a mint julep in your hand. It's all water and mint, eventually settling on a simple and pleasant teak. If you can't afford a boat, this may be the closest you'll get.

Store Launches ‘Man Aisle’

Get ready to stock up your man cave!

An Upper West Side grocery store yesterday launched the city’s first “man  aisle” — a portion of the store dedicated to facilitate a dude’s  otherwise-arduous trip to the grocery store by putting everything in one  convenient location — from condoms to steak sauce.

“It’s your essentials,” explained Ian Joskowitz, 43, chief operating officer  of Westside Market NYC. “It’s your water, alcohol, soaps, shampoos, deodorants,  razors.

“If you’re going to have some guys over to watch a game, you can pretty much  stand here — not move two feet — and get your beer, barbecue sauce, chips,  whatever. It’s all right here!”

Joskowitz and the store’s CEO, George Zoitas, were inspired to create the  manspace — conveniently located right next to the beer section — after reading  an ESPN study showing 31 percent of men are shopping for their families, up from  14 percent in the 1980s.

So the duo called some bros over to their man cave — a small office on the  store’s second floor — and started jotting down ideas for what they call “The  Man Isle.”

“We picked a couple of joke items — we could have chosen any ordinary coffee,  but we picked Chock full o’Nuts,” Joskowitz said, chuckling. “But then a couple  of us got a little overboard, so we tried to tone it down to not offend  anyone.”

“Guys don’t like taking lists when they go shopping,” Zoitas added.

“This helps them remember what they need.”

Customers at the store yesterday smiled, pointed to the man aisle and called  their friends over to see. By afternoon, store clerks had already restocked some  of the items.

“I think it’s a great idea,” said Andy Huber, 23, of Harlem. “I don’t like to  spend much time
