Mens Fashion – Non Prescription Glasses Are in This Summer

With the launch of the new season collections just around the corner, and amid the excitement of bright new colors and funky patterns for the girls, it's easy to over look the heel charms of the boys' new looks for summer. So what do our men folk have in store if they want to update their eye wear with a funky pair of non prescription glasses?

Men's frames need be a masterpiece in understated style. There are very few men who want to wear something wild and funky, and many are restricted by having to find something conventional for the office. The limited palette of colors that men like to wear throws down quite a challenge for designers! They have come up with endless new styles, smart detail that men will appreciate but not find too daring, and appeal to the techno hungry man with innovative joints and materials. Much easier sticking a few jewels and fancy bits on women's frames!

This season the predominant shape is still rectangular with fairly sharp contours, but the most popular shape is deaf than of late and slightly larger. The most popular colors have a matte finish, in dark tones ranging from dusky silver to den matte black. A classic velvet black will suit dark haired men or silver foxes wanting to regain some definition! Gunmetal is always in vogue too, just do not opt ​​for shiny silver or gold!

Detail is geometric, with cut out and inlaid squares, stripes and layers of metal in different colors for a quirky but smart layered metal effect. The mix of bronze and gun on frames makes good choices to go with smart suits or casual denim at the weekend. The technology that goes into these designs is a winner with men, who generally like to see some engineering on their non-glasses frames.

Spring hinges are a must, for strength and durability. They can also withstand a game of football if you do not attempt too many headers!

Mobile Auto Detailing Services

If you take pride in your luxury vehicle, you more than likely take meticulous care of what is beneath the hood, and around your rims, but often times the cleanliness and exterior suffers which is obviously the most viewed and most susceptible part of the vehicle. Mobile auto detailing will take the dirt and grime and edge off you car so it looks as clean and sharp as the very first day it was purchased. Depending on what kind of beating your vehicle has taken, there are equally as many options.

It will always begin with a hand wash and hand dry, making meticulously sure there is nothing left on the car before the waxing begins. The hand wax is applied carefully to coat the car completely to keep bugs, tar, and water off, and removed with the same attention to every detail. The wheels are polished so that not only the rim shines, but the tire as well, sparklingly black. Again, attention to detail is key, and you should expect the wheel wells to be properly dressed as well as the tires and doing so is a certain sign of care and professionalism. The door jambs will be waxed and detailed along with the rest and nothing is more attractive than seeing each chrome nut and bolt shine.

Interior detailing is as important as whatever work is done on the exterior and for this reason going for the full interior job is just as significant as getting the body waxed and polished properly. Brushes, fluids, and air guns should be used if they are a high end operation because of course you get what you pay for in these cases. After the cleaning it is went over again with a sealant to prevent any upcoming spills or damage that would compromise your very freshly clean new vehicle. A thorough shampooing can be expected, starting with the mats and carpets, and the seats as well, which more than likely needs the care more, even though they are frequently neglected when it comes to detailing options. Finally everything will be scotch guarded and one is even able to pick if they want a nice scent to be left to linger in their car when you get it back cleaner than the day it was first bought.

It cannot be stressed enough how important a clean vehicle is inside and out. If you are a professional, it is obvious a dirty car is unbecoming, but few look ahead to the possibility of having to give your boss a ride and explaining a trashed interior space, which in such a case would end up being even more of a problem than dirt on the hood in the first place. For whatever reason, it should be done, and done on a regular basis as well.

Renting Your Next Holiday Home

Renting your holiday home!

The DIY holiday property rental market has increased dramatically over the last few years. This is due to various factors including the explosion of the internet, a desire to cut out the commission charged by the high street travel agent, and the satisfaction of bringing one’s own research to fruition.

So what makes a good holiday home?

Requirements from a holiday home will differ from group to group and as will indeed the reason for the holiday. It is best to make a list for both, so that when you do your research you cover all the bases.

Expanding this point. You know your family or friends who will be holidaying with you. Would they be content to be in a remote spot, or do they prefer to be within walking distance of bars and restaurants and of course the beach? Do they wish to be near leisure activities such as horse riding or golf? If you have grandparents with you don’t forget that they may well want to be able to do there own thing. They will not want to be with you 24 x 7, they might wish to be able to walk into the village/town/resort to get treats for the kids, or just to have an hour on there own. Make sure you ask them what they want to get from the holiday. If you have teenagers/young adults with you, they may not thank you if there is nowhere to go ‘clubbing’. The aim is to keep everyone happy.

Villas

Renting villas for holidays is very popular, they provide a general feeling of luxury. A villa sleeping traditionally 2-20 can often be cheaper than renting a room or rooms in an apartment or hotel. Most villas come complete with an outdoor pool. However wonderful it sounds you must consider Health and Safety issues. Not many pools will be fenced off so you will have to watch small children closely. If teenagers remember they might be able to swim, however consider the effects of alcohol. Even a glass of wine over the family lunch can take effect in the heat! The good thing about villas are that one is not tied to meal times and you can do just as you please, eat outdoors or in, on site or go out.

Apartments

Apartments are one of the favourites with teenagers and families. The good thing about apartments is that they are normally grouped together around gardens/pools with a bar or and restaurant. If you have children or teenagers they can make new friends and to some extent amuse themselves. The owners may put on some entertainment. Check the advert for full details. The quality of apartments can vary so make sure you know what you are booking. There are varying types of rooms available ranging form studio’s, to 1, 2 or even 3 bedrooms. Fully consider your needs before make a booking. I always like to have more room than I need on holiday. So for example depending on price, for 2 persons, I tend to book a one bed roomed apartment rather than a studio. This provides that extra bit of space for your baggage.

Important points to consider when making your decision.

Cleaning: You will be expected to keep the villa/apartment reasonably clean and tidy. Check the detail on the website. One can sometimes arrange for someone to come and do the basics for you. This might be included in the price or incur an additional charge.

Linen change: Again check the detail regarding linen changes. Most adverts will offer a change on a 14 night holiday, however some will charge additional monies as well! If it is not clear on the advert ask! Also check regarding the provision of towels. Some properties provide even the beach towels which will save you quite a bit of weight for a large family. More room for duty free goods!

Directions: When booking check how you will receive the address and directions from the airport. Often the website permits these to be down loaded once full payment is obtained. Ask where the keys are collected from. It is not unusual to collect them form under the geranium pot outside, but you do need to know.

Terms and conditions: Make sure you fully read and understand these fully! These will inform you as the following: The time you can enter and must leave the premises, (You can sometimes re-arrange this to fit in with flight times); Security Deposits (This is a refundable deposit. A claim can be made against by the owner/agent for loss or breakages); and cancellation charges.

Welcome packs: Welcome packs are often either provided for free or at a modest cost, (on a per person basis). A pack will see you through your drink and possibly light meal. That said I know some owners/agents who supply a feast fit for a king or queen. Again check the advert. If a pack is not free do consider your arrival time at your holiday home. Will the shops be open? If likely to be closed you will be grateful for the basics to be delivered for you.

Vehicle hire: Some companies will provide vehicle hire as part of the package. Check the details. Your own car is very useful for getting around and seeing the best the area has to offer. Remember to take your driving licence with you. If a vehicle is not provided shop around as prices do vary. But please be wary. Some companies abroad are as not as health and safety conscious as others. Expect to pay for extras such as extended insurance cover, child seats or harnesses. When you collect the vehicle you will very likely be asked to hand over your credit card for details to be obtained. Make sure you fully check for dents and scratches when you collect it and when you drop if off. I know of several people who have been charged against there credit card for fresh scratches. They denied all knowledge but to no avail!

Travel Insurance: By law you are legally bound to have travel insurance. You will not however be prosecuted if you do not have it. It is simply your responsibility. Policies differ. Make sure you have full and financially adequate cover. Beware of cheap policies. They are not cheap if you end up not being covered. Do not put you or your family at risk. If you are holidaying in Europe make sure you also have a European Health Insurance Card. The card entitles you to free or reduced cost treatment in European Economic Area (EEA) country or Switzerland.

Finally enjoy your holiday it is what we all work for!
