Drake Gifted Same Rolls Royce Phantom He Used to Rent To “Keep Up Appearances”

Drake recently celebrated his 35th-birthday with a Narcos-themed party that saw a multitude of big names come through to party in Chico Amante-fashion. Amongst one of the more notable gifts Drake has received, his close friend Future the Prince gave Drizzy the same Rolls Royce Phantom they used to rent for $5,000 USD a month just to “keep up appearances.” The Boy took to Instagram to explain that, “Back in 2007 we used to finesse this Rolls-Royce Phantom rental to convince people in the city we were destined to make it. I used to scrape together 5k a month somehow to keep up appearances. We whipped this to Ottawa to see [Belly] and [Cash] and to Montreal for my first show ever. I used to pick up [Niko] and roll every day or wait outside [Nebby’s] class for her. Park...

3D Artist Renders XL Version of the Honda Motocompo

London-based freelance 3D artist Allan Williams aka vektasigma has just given fans a new way to look at the cult Honda Motocompo compact bike. Named the Motocompo XL, Williams renders up what the folding motorized scooter would look like as a full-sized motorcycle. The bike is somewhat reminiscent of Kaneda’s motorcycle from Akira but that’s largely due to the Caribbean Red paint job and wheel hubs. While this XL version definitely won’t fit in a Honda City, it does maintain the signature boxy exterior but changes the riding posture to something closer to a sports bike or cafe racer with its low-mounted clip-ons and parallel solo seat. The design also elects for more industrial and cyberpunk styling with LED light bars, panels inspired by aircrafts, and retro Honda brandi...

Porsche Celebrates ‘Back to the Future’ Day by Showing off Its Taycan’s 1.21 GW Charging Capacity

In the original Back To The Future, the DeLorean required 1.21 gigawatts of power to be able to time travel. To put it in layman terms, it requires 1.21 billion wats of power which is enough to illuminate over 100 million LED bulbs or approximately six Nimitz-class aircraft carriers. Now, thanks to modern technology, the 1.21 gigawatts of combined electricity has now been made available through the European Ionity and Electrify America charging networks. While drivers will not be time travelling with this charge, the new benchmark now allows the two electrical giants have now claimed the largest DC fast-charging network in the U.S. and Europe. With this news, Porsche paired off their hot-selling Taycan Turbo S EV took advantage of the network. The Taycan was paired next to the DeLorean to ...

With the “Unleashed,” E-Type UK Champions the Simple Pleasures of Driving

Whether you like it or not, there is no escaping the fact that the future of cars is electric. It would seem, then, that making a British sportscar with a thumping V12 engine at the front is a pointless exercise, tone-deaf to our ongoing climate catastrophe (and ill-timed in the midst of the U.K’s fuel crisis). But E-Type UK — one of the world’s leading restorers of classic Jaguar E-type models — makes a convincing case otherwise. “The future of the automotive industry is no doubt dependent on its ability to adapt to increasing needs to be sustainable and environmentally justifiable,” says Marcus Holland, Director of E-Type UK. “By the very nature of our work, we revive pre-existing parts with extremely minimal environmental impact when compared to the equivalent of producing a...

9 Outfits That’ll Make You Rethink Neutrals Being “Boring”

Like anyone, we love a good pop of colour every now and then, but—hear us out—all-neutral outfits can be incredibly chic. We also can’t deny how simple they make getting dressed—which is sometimes why colourful dressing is deemed trickier. Sticking to a spectrum of cream, brown, and beige means you can mix and match with abandon because all these shades go together seamlessly. Still, worried that working in the absence of vibrant hues will make your minimalist outfits a little lackluster? Trust us when we say neutral-toned dressing is anything but boring. It just takes a jolt of inspiration to get the outfits right. Think about layering textures when testing out monochrome dressing, and you’ll stand out but in a subtle way. To prove our point, we rounded up some of our fav...

I’ve Had So Many Compliments On My Lashes Since Using This Cult Product

To say I was humbled is an understatement. With consistent use, my lashes are longer than I could have imagined. When I look up and shift my eyes from left to right, I can feel my lashes tickle my brow. When I add mascara into the mix, they look like I’ve added in individuals. I feel like it’s given my coy eyelash batting a new lease of life, especially in the era of the facemask.  I have to put emphasis on the need for consistency though. You do need to be disciplined– every night before I go to bed, I swipe the brush across my top lash line and allow the ingredients to sink in to encourage growth. I used it at night because the body repair itself at night so I figured that was the best time for aiding growth, however, if you prefer, the morning is fine too. Whatever time you use it ...

This Is Where Our Editors Plan on Buying Their Chunky Boots This Winter

Luckily for us, it doesn’t seem like chunky boots are going anywhere anytime soon. Year after year, they come back stronger than ever—so much so that we’re pretty sure they’ve officially transitioned from a trend into a classic wardrobe staple.
