How To Choose The Right Motor Trade Insurance

When you are a professional who works with vehicles every day, you need to make sure that you are protected against anything that might come your way. Say, for example, you are a mechanic who needs to drive a client’s car. Do you have the right kind of insurance cover for this?

Motor trade insurance is the perfect kind of policy for this kind of role. If you don’t already have motor trade insurance then you should make sure that you invest in the right kind of policy. Here, we are going to help you choose the right motor trade insurance for your business. Keep reading to find out more.

Do You Need It?

If your business has ‘care, custody or control’ of someone else’s car you will need Third Party motor trade insurance at the very least.

Some of the common types of roles that require motor trade insurance include car dealers, bodyshop repair garages and valets. These are the people who are likely to be driving around in someone else’s vehicle and any business that employs this kind of staff needs to have the right kind of cover. Make sure to find out if your business requires this kind of insurance before taking out a policy to ensure that you don’t waste any money in the future.

What Is Covered?

Motor trade insurance will be tailored to the needs of the business, and as such it’s impossible to say exactly what will be covered by each policy.

Each policy will be different and you might need to pay more for the more comprehensive policies. Some things that you might expect to be covered by this kind of insurance may not be, so make sure that you are reading all of the terms and conditions carefully before you take out a policy.

Comparing Prices

When you are trying to choose the right motor trade insurance policy for your business, you need to make sure that it is affordable. Policies will range in price depending on the type of cover and the company that is providing it. It is always a good idea to compare the prices of different policies before you make any commitment to the deal.

You can do this easily by using an online platform who will look at your requirements and provide you with the best deals across a range of providers. Don’t just go for the first one you see, ensure you compare providers using a price comparison platform. This will help you to find the right price and not overpay for your insurance. This is something which will help to keep your business costs low as we are sure that you will have a lot of other things to pay for.

Optional Extras

Finally, you might want to consider looking at some of the optional extras that can be added on to your motor trade insurance policy. These extras are things that can make your policy more comprehensive and personalised to your business. Some of the things that you might be able to have added on to your policy include European cover, Parts Only cover and cover for your business premises.
Some of these optional extras will add a lot of money to your policy while others might only have a small impact on the cost. Make sure to only add on the things that you need and don’t be swayed by an insurance company that wants to make some extra money from you.

Final Thoughts

Choosing the right kind of motor trade insurance for your business can be tricky but if you think about it carefully then you should be able to find the right policy. It is important that you know first what you need to be covered for and that you have a budget in mind. If you can find a policy that covers everything that you need and you find it for the right price then you should be able to make the right decision.

We advise that you always compare prices before you commit to any kind of policy in the future. Soon, you’ll have your motor business up and running and be covered should anything happen while you are on the job.

Keeping A Dog In The Inner City: A Guide

Many people who live in the midst of a city crave the company of a dog. Living in built-up urban areas can sometimes be a lonely existence, and sometimes a dog is a soothing and comforting housemate that will keep you sane during rough times. However, when you live in such a busy area, it is important to do this responsibly. You want to make sure your pet is happy and contented in their surroundings before you shell out on such a big responsibility.

Check with your landlord
Before you head down to the pet store, double-check that your landlord actually allows pets in your property. You could cause real problems for your lease if you suddenly show up with an unexpected animal. If your landlord is reluctant, then have a clear and open chat about what type of dog you will be keeping and how you will look after it. If the landlord explicitly states that an animal is a no-go, then you may have to move.

Choose a breed that’s right for the area
Want to own a racing hound when you live on the 16th floor of an apartment block? That might be a bad idea. However, if you’re lucky enough to live in a house with a garden, and live near plenty of parks, you should be fine for more energetic breeds, such as labradors. Visiting a dog expert like Snowy Pines White Labradors will help you know if a lab is right for your family. If you decide a labrador is right for your family, then make sure you have plenty of room, and wide open spaces nearby to take them for runs. You need to give your dog what it needs and in this case, it is bigger space.

Be aware of the summer months
The warmer months can be incredibly tough on dogs. The sun not only makes it uncomfortable for them to exercise and move around, but it also dehydrates them. One extra consideration to make is how hot the pavement will get in direct heat. This could really hurt your dog’s paws, and so you may need to consider getting little covers for your dog’s feet. If in doubt, stick to shaded areas, and always bring water with you to keep your pet hydrated while the weather is intense.

Research daycare
Unless you happen to have inherited tonnes of wealth, your reasons for living in the city are likely to be a regular job. This means you will be away from your apartment and indeed your dog. If your employer doesn’t let you bring your dog to work, then you will need to research some daycare options. It’s not fair on your dog to leave them in a confined apartment or house while you go to work, especially in smaller city abodes.

There is an extra level of responsibility to consider when adopting a pet in the city. You have to be mindful of how you will exercise it and whether it will be truly happy in your living conditions. However, if you have the means to take it on regular walks, provide daycare and treat it with undying love, then you might just be ready for the adoption forms.

Top 10 Hair Cut Ideas You’ll Want to Try Right Now

If you’re looking to update your look, you need to take these hair cut ideas into consideration. These are the hottest fall looks, and you’ll be inspired.

Are you ready to change your look and try a new haircut but you’re not sure what you want?

Celebrities, Instagram stars, and models can seemingly rock any style or color and look good. But some styles are more flattering (and attainable) than others. Finding a style that looks good on you and is still fashionable can be challenging.

Find inspiration with these hair cut ideas and styles perfect for any season. Keep reading to learn which cuts work for long and short hair and which style is best for you.

Blunt-Cut Bob

Ready to go short for the fall? The blunt cut is big this year leading to chic styles like the blunt bob. The bob is a go-to for many women because it flatters every face style.

Shorter styles also give damaged or over-processed hair new life and make your hair look healthy again. Recently, star Emilia Clarke cut off her long locks and rocked this shorter look.

Elegant Waves

Two of the biggest trends for this year are waves and curls. Gentle waves that cascade down your face look both elegant and feminine. Look to stars like Mila Kunis for inspiration if you want to try this look.

Another wavy hairstyle coming back this year? The finger wave. This style which was popular in the 1920s and 1930s has regained popularity in the last few years.

Sleek and Straight

Sleek and straight hair is still another fall-favorite. Straight bobs and lobs are the perfect lengths for turtlenecks, scarves, and fall sweaters.

Add shine and elegance to this style by straightening your hair and taming any unwanted frizz with some product. Tuck your hair behind your ears or pin it back for a youthful look.

Bardot Bangs

Popularized by pop culture star Brigitte Bardot, this look remains one of many trendy hairstyles that never go out of style.

If you’re tired of your current style and want to add some flair, bangs can transform your entire look. Bardot bangs never go out of style because they’re fun and flirty while still being professional.

Bronde

If you like your current length but you want to add visual interest, consider adding some color. One of the big styles this year is the “bronde” look which combines brown and blonde colors in a natural way.

If you can’t decide on light or dark hair then this style is for you. The warm and rich tones of this color combination are perfect for fall. And as a bonus, it’s also low-maintenance which means fewer trips to the salon.

If you’re looking for inspiration, check out the shadow roots trend. You’ll see all sorts of the latest hairstyles trying to invent a way to work the roots into the look. The shadow roots style allows your natural hair color to come through.

Caramel Highlights

Caramel highlights add warmth and dimension to your hair giving it that autumn sunlight vibe. Consider giving your hair an extra pop of color by adding highlights. This look also transitions well into the winter months and as your hair grows longer.

But what if you already have highlights but you feel you need to refresh your color? Demi-permanent hair color can lighten your blonde highlights and make your hair more vibrant.

Learn more about the difference between semi and demi hair colors so you and your stylist can achieve the look you want.

Wet and Wavy

Do you love that beachy hair look? If so, you’re in luck because wet and wavy hair is one of the hottest styles right now.

If you have long hair, ask for more layers for extra movement and volume. Opt for slightly damp and natural-looking waves. You can achieve this Instagram-worthy look with a curl diffuser.

The wet look works on both long and short hairstyles. With some hair gel to tame those flyaway strands, you can achieve a sleek and fashionable look.

Mid-Length

If you’re not ready for a bob or even a lob, mid-length hair is a good combination of functional and stylish. This classic style gives women a feminine look that’s easy to maintain and style.

As a bonus, you can pull mid-length hair up into a ponytail or bun when you hit the gym or don’t feel like styling your hair. If you want a more modern take on this look, avoid too many layers. Instead, add interest with some gentle waves by using a curling iron.

Mid-length and longer hairstyles look great with warm hats and headbands, making these cuts perfect for fall and winter. As a bonus, this style helps keep your neck warm.

Natural Curls

This is the time to let your full and curly hair shine because natural curls is one of the hottest fall hairstyles to try this year. Ask for external and internal layers to add shape and interest and reduce bulk.

Knowing which products to use is the key to mastering this look. Talk to your stylist and ask for suggestions for your hair type.

Shag Cut

The shag look is still big this year, bringing back those rocker vibes. This cut is artsy, lived-in, and casual. This style works on both long and short hair plus it’s low fuss and requires minimal styling to maintain.

So how do you get a shag cut? Ask your stylist for shattered layers for extra movement. 

Sometimes stylists use razors to give layers more movement and to remove the weighed-down look of heavy hair. You can even pair this style with long bangs.

Give These Hair Cut Ideas a Try for Yourself

Trends come and go, but some styles last through the years. These chic and feminine hair cut ideas add interest and transform your look.

These are just a few of the current hairstyles making an appearance on both the red carpet and the streets. The next time you head to the salon, don’t be afraid to try one of them for yourself.

Conan Gray New Single

On the eve of headlining a sold-out run across North America, The Comfort Crowd” Tour, buzzing 20-year-old bedroom pop singer-songwriter Conan Gray unveils his official new single “Maniac” today.

Check out the official music video for “Maniac”HERE and stream the song Here via Republic Records

On the song Conan said:“I wrote maniac in the shower after getting a midnight drunk sob text from my ex. They’d been running all around town telling everyone that I was some freak who wouldn’t leave them alone when in reality, they were the freak. They were the one acting like a maniac— sending strange late-night texts and showing up at my shows unannounced. T thought it was hilarious and all my friends had dealt with the same thing, so I decided to write a cathartic post break-up song dedicated to psychotic exes. that’s how maniac was born.”

Nodding to horror classics like Zombieland and Dawn of the Dead, the action goes down on “Devil’s Night” just a day before Halloween. The teasers for the video have shown Conan and his friend Jess (played by Netflix’s The End of the F***ing World star Jessica Barden) working at a movie theater. Watch the full video to see what happens……

Conan also said of the video: “I think everyone has dealt with a psycho ex at one point in their life. with the “Maniac” video, I wanted everyone’s worst nightmare to come true— all of your exes coming back from the dead to haunt you all in one night. “Night of the Living Exes,” if you will. The second I came up with the video, I knew immediately that I wanted Jess Barden from “The End Of The F***ing World” to play the best friend. Jess is incredibly talented, and her character reminds me a ton of my own best friend who I’d seen date a slew of different types of people. The jock, the artsy one, the nice one, etc. I thought it’d be fun to showcase all of the stereotypes in a cheesy 80’s horror movie esque video.”

Later this month, Conan returns to the road for “The Comfort Crowd” Tour. The six-week run kicks off October 29 at The Pageant in St. Louis, MO. It stops in major markets across the country, including New York’s Terminal 5 on November 12th, before concluding with a three-night stand at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, CA December 11-13. 

In addition, he recently was featured in V Man’s Fall/Winter 2019 issue, UPROXXPaper, and Grammy.com in addition to receiving a nomination at the YouTube STREAMY Awards in the category of “Breakthrough Artist.”

“The Comfort Crowd” Tour follows his recent sold out European tour, as well as a momentous North American spring headline tour that included sold out shows in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Chicago, and Toronto.

Full itinerary below, get tickets HERE.

Conan Gray has been making a name for himself with his songs “Comfort Crowd,”“Crush Culture,”“Checkmate” and “The King.” He’s earned praise from Troye SivanKhalid, Brockhampton’s Kevin Abstract, and BTS has SOLD OUT ALL dates on his last two headline tours, performed at Lollapalooza and recently had a showcase for fans in NY and LA with over 10,000 RSVP’s. Previously featured in V Man’s Fall/Winter 2019 issue, PaperiDFaderTeen VogueUPROXXGrammy.comMTVDazed & ConfusedBillboardGeniusClash Magazine Notion,  and more – he is currently working on his debut album due out in early 2020.

Fresh off of his release of his Sunset Season EP -Earlier this year made his TV debut on Late Night w Seth Meyers, (watch HERE) and is an incredible live performer). He is a mixture of Lorde meets Taylor Swift, meets the new king of Gen Z Pop. Not to mention he has a rabid online fan base of loyal followers (Instagram: 1Million FollowersTwitter: 460k FollowersYouTube 1.52 million subscribers).

Gray continues to make major waves on his own terms. A string of hits has vaulted him to the forefront of modern pop. With songs from his recent Sunset Season EP and all singles released to date has generated over 250 million streams.
Armed with nothing more than Garageband and a cheap microphone taped to a lamp, Conan Gray released his song “Idle Town” on his YouTube channel as an ode to his hometown of Georgetown, TX. The song went viral, and he later joined forces with LA based producer Dan Nigro to finalize his Sunset Season EP. In January, 2019, Conan made his television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers, before opening for Panic at the Disco! for several shows on their arena tour. Conan has sold out two North American and European tour.

Mastering the Art of Flavor

By Armon Hayes × Vaughn Lowery

Held at Haven’s Kitchen in Chelsea, 360 MAGAZINE experienced a foodie’s dream come true at “Mastering the Art of Flavor” culinary event. Six ordinary recipes transformed featuring distinguished flavors of Holland House and NAKANO. Hosted by MasterChef finalist Cate Meade, registered dietician Mia Syn as well as food stylist Jessica Formicola.

They shared incredible resources and recipes in preparation for the holiday season. Cooking tips on how we can remain calm and stress free in the kitchen. Take it from Chef Cate, “Prep and prepare” is the ingredient to a five-star meal.

As the spokeswomen for Holland House, Cate shared her three Holiday stress-free recipes developed with cooking wine. For starters, the Spinach Feta and Artichoke Dip is the perfect dish for hosting where guests can gather and enjoy. A 1/2 cup of Holland House White cooking wine comes together for a robust bold flavor in every bite. Served best with vegetable crudité, baked pita chips and/or crackers.

The Sherry Cherry Pork Loin Roast was Cate’s showstopping dish, demonstrating that a slow cooker is an essential kitchen appliance. Cooked to perfection, the sweet but savory taste served with Sherry Cherry sauce complemented the tender meat. Layered with braised onions and roasted vegetables for hearty appetites.

Beyond her ‘easy bake oven’ years, Cate’s Flourless Chocolate Cake is a healthier option for dessert without sacrificing taste. Holland House Red cooking wine with macerated strawberries emerged in red wine added depth to the cake’s moisture. Garnished with sifted powdered sugar or cocoa powder for a sweet dusting.

Post holiday season we all desire healthier behaviors to impact our lifestyles. Mia Syn, RDN shared “Healthy Habits for the New Year.” Her recipes were inspired by Nakano, a gluten-free seasoned rice vinegar. It’s sweet light flavor dresses up any dish from salads to pasta.

Each recipe takes no more than 15 minutes to prepare. Her first recipe Chopped Chinese Chicken Salad with Sesame Dressing is light but filling. NAKANO Toasted Sesame Rice vinegar poured over salad ingredients and thinly sliced chicken breasts.

Mia’s meals include a rainbow of vegetables which are packed with nutrients. A sheet pan required with a simple toss in the oven. My favorite, the low-carb Teriyaki Chicken breasts. Bite-sized morsels surrounded with veggies and peppers cut into small florets. Drizzle NAKANO Rice Vinegar with teriyaki sauce on top and bake for 7 minutes.

Cauliflower Fried Rice is the best substitute for a starchy option; including peas, carrots, cabbage with an egg.

Jessica Formicola hosted a food styling lesson filled with tips and tricks to wow your guests and get the most social engagement through your content. Her most vital and resourceful tip is to “use what you have on hand” to elevate any five-star dish. Be sure to include the real ingredients in your dish for a relatable and approachable take.

In short, if you’re looking to get in the kitchen during the holidays, be sure to use Holland House and NAKANO products to enhance your food’s overall appearance and taste.

ROLLS-ROYCE × VIKTORIA MODESTA

BIONIC PERFORMING ARTIST VIKTORIA MODESTA EMBODIES ROLLS-ROYCE BLACK BADGE

  • Extraordinary creative team interpret Rolls-Royce’s boldest expression of luxury
  • Black Badge attitude shaped by futurist and bionic artist, Viktoria Modesta
  • ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ prosthetic created in collaboration with Rolls-Royce for short film

In March 2016 Rolls-Royce Motor Cars presented Black Badge; a permanent Bespoke family of motor cars that respond to the taste patterns of the marque’s most daring and disruptive clients. Since its introduction, Black Badge has become the most commanding presence on the super-luxury landscape and has done much to attract a new generation of Rolls-Royce customers to the marque. The time is now right to delve further into its extraordinary allure.

“Black Badge began as an alter-ego of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars but has grown to define an attitude that exists among a new breed of entrepreneurs. These remarkable people are confident, assertive and willfully disruptive. They respond to the notion of reimagined rules. This film is a tribute to their philosophy and the ongoing success of this truly transformative expression of luxury.” – Torstein Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

In this spirit, the marque called upon a collective of globally recognized creatives to express the soul of Black Badge. At the center of the work is bionic performance artist and art director Viktoria Modesta, celebrated for her innovative and futuristic approach and famed for her fearless performances at the Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony, Art Basel, and Fashion Weeks worldwide.

Among the items created for this performance art piece was a prosthetic limb wrought from Black Badge carbon fiber that the designer created in collaboration with Joe Dip Rima at ArcAttack, the Alternative Limb Project and the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective of craftspeople, designers and engineers. A Tesla coil is incorporated into the heel and activates under pressure to create a ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ effect, illuminating the glass area of the limb with a continuous train of large sparks on demand. It is the first wearable ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ of its kind. The colored area of the prosthetic is finished in the marque’s hallmark Black paint and detailed with a 3D printed and electroplated Rolls-Royce grill motif.

Modesta says, “There are many parallels between the Black Badge philosophy and my work, chiefly maximizing your potential and becoming a hyper version of yourself.  I really wanted to capture the Black Badge attitude and fierce spirit, by embodying that through body art, it felt totally wild. Pushing the boundaries to the extreme we explored the allure of a darker, bolder expression, a place where your senses are heightened, where you are the bravest and most free.”

Key to expressing Modesto’s character through the prism of Black Badge was an international team of tech and fashion designers. Anouk Wipprecht, the ‘FashionTech’ pioneer collaborated with Rolls-Royce to build items that apply Wipprecht’s hallmark aesthetic of fashion design, engineering, science and user experience to the pieces.

Wipprecht, alongside Modesta and the Bespoke Collective also tailored a Black Badge carbon fiber bodice to the bionic artist. The artist’s silhouette was digitized using a high-resolution body scan while the bodice itself was created using a SLS powder-based 3D printing technique to form the extra-lightweight wearable before it was veneered with carbon fiber.

Wipprecht says, “Like the Black Badge motor cars we are expressing, Viktoria is badass. She’s not scared of anything. Creating my aesthetic overlay in collaboration with the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective merged technology and fashion in a way that truly captured the spirit of Black Badge.”

The visionary tasked with creating a cohesive narrative was director, Jora Frantzis. Her work articulating the visual backdrop of subversive contemporary recording artists, including Cardi B and IV Jay, prepared her to interpret the dark world of Black Badge with Modesta at its center.

“Viktoria as an embodiment of power symbolized through the electricity of the prosthetic. She can shift time and space, shape worlds and push them in any direction she deems fit. Modesta’s subversive style worked so well with Rolls-Royce Black Badge. I’m pleased to say that we’ve created something really unique.”

REEBOK × XIMONLEE

DEBUT SUSTAINABLE DMX

AT SHANGHAI FASHION WEEK


New DMX Hydrex sneaker is inspired by scuba boots

The two brands unite to educate consumers on conscious consumption

 
Reebok launched their partnership with Berlin-based Chinese designer XIMONLEE through an iconic new release of sustainable DMX Trail Hydrex silhouettes. Briefly teased at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year, the Reebok x XIMONLEE DMX Trail silhouette took center stage in the designers’ 2020 Spring/Summer Shanghai show.
 
Global sportswear brand Reebok and boundary-pushing designer XIMONLEE are bound by the belief that creating more sustainable offerings creates newness, with the shared goal being to awaken a consciousness in consumption within their consumer. XIMONLEE’s explorative yet commercial collections provide a unique vision on social topics, identities and philosophical quests brought to life through Reebok’s demonstrable footwear expertise.
 
Debuting in three new colorways, the new DMX Trail Hydrex sneaker was inspired by a mix of scuba boots and archetypal Reebok footwear, fusing the core aesthetics of XIMONLEE’s vision with Reebok’s undeniable heritage.
 
A trail-inspired outsole sits atop a functional water boot upper in vibrant colorways of brick red, mint green and purple. Nodding to the rise of outdoor-inspired high-fashion silhouettes, Reebok amplified its all-terrain functionality without sacrificing XIMONLEE’S signature aesthetic.


The silhouette, as featured on the Shanghai Fashion Week runway, will be available for purchase in late 2020 through its official retail launch.
