in Lifestyle

Demand for vintage has never been stronger. There is a particular type of person who scours Etsy, Ebay, and ASOS looking for the unique, the timeless, and the hard-to-come-by fashions of yesteryear. Large auction outlets and resale sites for years have catered to shoppers and their love of vintage, but what they have not done is made it easy to deliver low prices. High commission rates, fees and low visibility have made it more difficult for sellers to make a living without charging prices that are beyond what sellers want to pay or even can afford.   RETRuly caters to those who love vintage. It is a friendly community, bringing vintage enthusiasts together in a secure and safe environment. RETRuly was created in 2016 to provide the first marketplace dedicated to vintage clothing & home-wares.

UK barber Trevor McClintock shares helpful tips to male grooming

in Lifestyle

Trevor McClintock is a barber and male beauty expert with over twenty-five years of industry experience. He combines a traditional approach to grooming with a distinctly modern flair. He currently runs a popular, self-titled barbershop in Bedford, UK. “It isn’t just girls that need to look after their hair, men too should make sure that they have hair that is just crying out to have fingers run through it,” Trevor says. “Thinning hair, dandruff, and the dreaded baldness, all make it harder to have beautiful hair when you are a man, but thankfully there are things that you can do to make sure that you feel amazing and look great too!” Trevor’s top tips for healthy looking hair includes getting some exercise, treating scalp problems right away, staying hydrated, eating a good diet, and sticking on an egg mask. Eggs are packed full of protein, which is not only great when you eat them, but they can also make for a great treatment for dry and brittle hair. Trevor recommends that if you are suffering with hair that is lacking in shine and moisture then you should mix a raw egg with your favourite shampoo, applying this to wet hair and…

TankSpotter app saves lives and increases company sales

in Lifestyle

It is a rare occasion that we are so pleasantly surprised by an app that works on both Apple and Android devices as all the best apps do.  A newer app was recently recommended to us and we are excited to share it with you because it does some very important things. To say that it is a safety app designed to automate safety, risk management and all forms of inspections or safety paperwork is part true, but then it is also designed to spot-check the safety inspection itself while the inspection is going on, alerting the user and office staff of a safety issue.  That’s great because it is destined to save lives especially since it is used in the flammable fuel industry, but then to the elation of users it automates the filing and clerical paperwork formerly associated with these tasks. While the fact that this app will help save lives is in itself enough, the app also automates the sales process.  So company sales reps can enjoy many of the same benefits that company safety and service techs get. These include less paperwork, an app that knows what forms and documents they have to fill out everyday,…
