As busy ladies on the go, we all know that the world rests on our shoulders when it comes to managing home life.  Luckily for us the day has finally come where ordering a take out really is as simple as 1,2,3.

Dominos Pizza and Ford Motors have announced they will be teaming up, and providing pizza on the move for their customers with an app that means you can order a pizza on the way home, so its delivered to your door as you arrive home from a long day.

This new feature will allow customers to place a pizza order from their car using the Ford SYNC AppLink and Domino’s Pizza Profile platform.

Forddominoes2Domino’s customers who have a Pizza Profile on their Domino’s mobile app, as well as the Ford SYNC in-car connectivity system, will be able to enjoy pizza on the move via their saved “Easy Order” in a few voice-activated steps.

Customers can save their favourite pizza and menu item combination, address and payment information using the Easy Order function at Dominos or on their mobile app. The order can then be placed through the mobile app using voice commands provided by the SYNC system.

The AppLink feature enables drivers to control selected apps on connected smartphones and tablets using the SYNC voice button on the wheel or the audio system buttons of equipped Ford vehicles.

Life really is changing and the 21st century is certainly showing that life really can be made easier with technology lets hope soon Ford can come up with an App to could do a Sunday Roast!

London Congestion Zone Sign Cars 4 Girls

London is full of confusing signs, bustling traffic and thousands of cameras waiting to catch our every mistake.

But of course it doesn’t stop there, as a driver in London you also have to deal with the dreaded congestion charge, where does it start? How do you pay it? And how do you know if you have been though it?

Impossible to Avoid?

The congestion charge is set up around all the areas in London that you are more than likely to want to go. It’s almost impossible to avoid – you can do so by running parallel to the river or sticking to the A40 that then turns in to the A501. However opting for these routes is normally a traffic nightmare. (more…)

TRACKER, the stolen vehicle recovery specialist, warns car owners to be careful what they put on Twitter and other social media websites, as advertising that they are out for an evening or on holiday may well lead thieves to their door.

Stuart Chapman, TRACKER’s Police Relationships Manager, comments, “The changing face of car theft means that owners have to take more precautions than they would a few years ago.  Using social media, such as Twitter and Facebook to broadcast your movements, is almost like putting a poster for burglars on your house saying, ‘I’m not at home’.” (more…)

A recent survey carried out by motors.co.uk found that 48% of men thought they were more attractive in a sports car, and that they would be more appealing to the opposite sex while driving one.

A great number of men believe that they are seen as more desirable to women, when driving a sports model or an expensive car, but according to this survey, women thought men driving this type of car were arrogant, and very often self-centred people, who could quite possibly be also very dangerous drivers.

What are the options when it comes to travel in the UK?  Sit or more likely stand on a packed train that you paid hundreds of pounds for, or spend your whole months earnings on petrol and sit in traffic on your own for hours.
Blah Blah Cars – The new hitch hiking
Blah Blah cars may have just transformed the way we travel and updated the hitchhikers guide to the UK.  It’s basically like Airbnb for your car.

Unless you have a couple of grand stuffed under the sofa to pimp your ride, it can be fairly tricky.  Of course you can pick up branded dust caps for just a few pounds, seat covers will set you back a bit more, but they are still a thousand times cheaper than reupholstering the entire vehicle.

Pimp your ride – colour

For most of us even the colour of our car is not necessarily something we have personally chosen; it was just the one we liked most, on the forecourt. After all who are those people that chose to drive around in canary yellow cars? (more…)

Make your life all designer!

When choosing a new car most people will look at the mileage, engine, how old it is and all the other very sensible things to ensure you have a long and prosperous life with you car.  However times have certainly changed and now the car you buy can be more designer than the handbag you carry, as an influx of famous designers turn their hand to making four wheels look like they should be coasting down the runways of Paris and New York.

Susie Wolff’s journey to the Top

Glamour, money, speed and the world at your finger tips is what a Formula One drivers can come to expect when they are at the pinnacle of their career.

The journey to the top of Formula One is largely unachievable for most, even if you have the skill of a thousand of the world’s greatest drivers, without financial backing the chance of getting to fulfil that dream can be a distant memory.

Record Breaking Jenny Tinmouth

Women in motorsport are a rare find and usually only seen on the tarmac in a tin top, or watching from the sidelines.

Meet Jenny Tinmouth, a lady that has broken down all those barriers.
