New car buying guide Personal loan provider, Hitachi Personal Finance, has collated a checklist of things to consider if you want to get the best price on a new car.When it comes to budgeting for a new car, it’s vital that you take all costs into consideration. It’s not just about how much the car costs upfront, but also the additional expenses that come with vehicle ownership.Take the time to do some research before you buy, as it’s no good getting a great upfront cost on a car that you then can’t afford to keep.Most people have a dream car in mind, but choosing a car that’s going to hold its value will pay off in the long-run.Most new cars come with some form of warranty as standard, but they can differ massively, and not just in terms of the timeframe the warranty c

Tips for learning to drive For all of you above eighteen, your most recent birthday means more than adulthood and a national ID. It means you're allowed to get a driver's license and finally go for those joyrides you love, legally. However, not everyone is born with the skill of Michael Schumacher, so let me teach you the way of the vehicle before you run all the pedestrians over.ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING: Driving is sort of like a Mexican stand-off. The first person to flinch and show weakness loses. This is why you should aim to look as calm and collected as you can.

Why You Should Consider Personal Car Leasing

Why You Should Consider Personal Car Leasing

Financial, Tips
Why You Should Consider Personal Car Leasing When it comes to purchasing a new vehicle, it’s always worth remembering that your new car will start to lose value as soon as you drive away in it.  If you opt to take out a loan or a car finance agreement, you are paying a set amount per month for an object that is losing, rather than gaining, value.  Basically, this means that if you choose to purchase your vehicle, it will continue to depreciate even as it sits on your drive.Personal leasing offers a different option for drivers.  Instead of outright owning your vehicle, you will pay a fixed amount to use your vehicle over a set period of time.  This is generally between 2 and 4 years.  Then, once your agreement is over, the car will then be taken back by the leasing company.Whe

The Best Styling Tips for Scarves An LA-based designer taught us that the winter accessory will look just as good this Spring (and Summer!)Wrapping a scarf from LA-based brand Donni around your neck will make you feel something. When I tell founder Alyssa Wasko that she laughs and tells me, “It adds that missing something to an outfit. Actually it’s almost like you just look cooler, quite bluntly!”Since we are all waiting (desperately) for Spring to arrive, I asked Wasko about three of her favorite pieces, The Trio, a 3-toned blanket scarf, The Velvet Lady, a skinny velvet rectangle scarf and The Velvet Poppy, a solid velvet neck or hair tie, which are all often worn in the colder months, and how to best style them so they can be worn year round.
