Party Bus: The Hottest Trend in Toronto

I live for the nights that I won’t remember and the people that I won’t forget

                                                                                                            –  Drake 

Looking for the ultimate transportation that merges seamlessly with your party idea? Then look no further than a party bus Toronto. Party buses are specially designed luxury vehicles with plush interiors and plenty of entertainment features that can comfortably carry up to 30 or 40 people on board. Party buses have become a new trend in transportation simply due to the convenience of riding in numbers and the fact that you can start off your party right on the bus.

You can hire a party bus for special events and ceremonies such as concerts, wedding receptions, birthdays, anniversaries and prom among others. The party bus experience makes the whole ride to and from the event so much more fun. Some people will even hire a party bus and have the chauffeur drive around the city to particular joints but most of the partying will be on board anyway.

In order to keep things interesting and guests entertained, party buses have quite a number of luxury amenities such as:

  • Sound and lighting is a must have in party buses. A great sound system will keep the fun tunes blaring all through. You can even carry your own music collection and hook it up to the AUX connection. Some buses even have a DJ booth. Led lighting helps to create and keep the party atmosphere within the bus.
  • Plush interiors and dance floors are also a common feature in party buses. Leather seats and carpeted floors with plenty of legroom for a dance floor are definitely something to look forward to in a party bus.
  • You can also get to enjoy your favorite drink in a party bus with mini coolers/freezers to keep the drinks chilled. Not all party buses however allow drinking on board and you will need to ask about this when renting the vehicle. For those that do, some will even allow you to bring your own drinks.
  • If you are willing to go all out, you can get a licensed party bus with a host. The host is a great idea as they will keep the bus lively, serve up the drinks and keep the music going.
  • The best part about luxury party buses is the onboard toilet. With all that partying, you do not need to make a stop every time someone needs to use the toilet. You can keep the ride going for as long as you need.

With the wide variety of transportation options in the market today, it is advisable to take your time finding out what the limo company has to offer and whether this fits within your desired budget. Travelling in a group makes the cost of the service a lot more affordable as you can split it among 30 or 40 people. Party buses are arguably the most affordable luxury transportation available today if you keep that in mind making it a very popular trend in Toronto.

 

 

Manage Your Money With the 50-20-30 Rule

Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.
                                                                                                                                                       – Benjamin Franklin

Success is managing you money like a pro. Leaving pay check to pay check is quite common scenario for most twenty- something. Forever waiting for the next paycheck to arrive. Budgeting and saving seems rather impossible when you in such situations. 

Every career girl  needs to manage her money and built up her saving for the opportunities that may arrive unexpectedly. This is one of the most simple and functional rule that I follow. It has changed the way I save and it is quite practical and simple. The 50 – 20 -30 rule is about allotting 50% of your money towards your needs – 20% towards  your savings – 30% towards your wants.

20% “Your savings”

Savings are very important you never know when you might need extra money. Planing and early retirement or an investment.Every month put aside 20% of your paycheck in a separate savings account save yourself from temptation. Put the money out of sight and out of mind. At the end of the year you will be surprised  how much you were able to save with out much guilt and sacrifices. A little discipline with regards to money and budgeting goes a long way.

30% “Your wants”

I understand the list of wants is always full and we never run out of wants.This way you will be aware of spending 30% of your pay check on your wants. It can be spent on the dress you were eyeing for few days, clubbing, hobbies, or spa. But for the big trip you are planning that need a extra boost in budget simple twerk the rule a bit.
Instead of saving 20% save 30% and vice versa. You will have the extra money you need with out much compromise. Yes, it will require certain sacrifices but nothing good ever came easy.

Rock the Choker Trend

 

The trend is highly popular right now, with celebs like Taylor swift and Kendall Jenner sporting the choker to accentuate some of their signature looks.  Popularly considered to be revival of the 90s fashion trend the choker has been conceived long ago.

The origin of the popular choker dates back to thousands of years back to the Sumerian Empire in Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt. In those days the choker necklaces were considered protective ornaments. They were generally made of gold or lapis and vested with power.

Choker gained popularity during renaissance as a stylish accessory and were coveted among the royals in the late 19th century .During the late 19th century women in part of Germany and Austria used choker to mask lumps on the neck cause by goitre. While in few parts of the world, simple ribbon choker were symbolic of prostitution. The unprecedented notion changed when the choker graced the necks of ballerinas.

It is a trend that has survived the fall of the ancient empires and the evolutionary era of renaissance and surfaced time and again through the 20th century. The choker have evolved from a protective necklaces to stylish pieces, to being used to mask flaws ,  to being the symbol of prostitution in some parts of the world to being called “dog collars” during the 1920s  and 30s.

During 1920s and 30s choker were made of velvet ribbon and pearls with a central decal.

The 1970s rise of hippies’ culture saw the revival of the choker once again. Pop stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera advocated the choker trend through the 90s. This time the choker evolved in to the infamous plastic tattoo choker and simple ribbon chokers.

Today the choker is available is several forms, from simple ribbons to leather neckties to jewel encrusted collars.Big players likes Givenchy and Chloe have been featuring them on the runway and top jewellery designers are releasing new designs frequently.

Suffice to say the choker is a statement piece which will never go unnoticed. The choker draws attention to the neck and quite boldly so. It is undeniable bold and chic.

Rocks the trends like bloggers do.

1 Layer it with other necklaces – Take layering to the next level.

2 Wear it solo – Give the choker the glory it deserves.

3 Tie it like blogger do . 

4 Wear it with a edge.

All you need to know about 5 Piece French Wardrobe Part 1

If she can’t afford it, she won’t buy it. If it doesn’t fit (or make her feel good, or flaunt what she’s got), she won’t wear it. If she can’t find it, she won’t compromise. If she loves it, she won’t toss it. She reuses it, rethinks it, lets it age.

When a French girl shops, it isn’t a solitary act of buying something new. It’s part of a lifelong process of editing her environment, making small but meaningful additions to her home, her closet and her life.
