We all have an idea of where we want to be heading. We all have people and ideas that motivate us – keeping us on the straight and narrow to achieve that ‘goal’. The biggest problem I have faced is a lack of self-awareness. I find it all too easy to follow a random to-do list and just think I’m doing the right thing in the moment. The issue with that is time passes by and you feel like you are still in the same place. Getting stuck in that rut is what causes sparks of anxiety and potentially mild depression, leaving your mind in a place that doesn’t help you move forwards and motivation can drop off.

  1. How do I go about achieving my goals? In quite a simplistic way – the theory is the simple part, it’s always a question of ‘can I follow these steps through?’. The way I work it all out is: I write down on a sheet of plain paper ‘I am here’ on one side and ‘I want to be here’ – join the two together with a line. Then work backward from your goal to where you are today. This will create a list of things you need to do to get where you want to be. The next part is self-explanatory. Just follow the steps you have just written for yourself. Keep that piece of paper, keep referencing it because this will keep your progress in perspective. It doesn’t have to be 10000 steps long, but it will help your mind understand the path you are walking down, and each time you tick off one of those steps you will realise you ARE on the right path and you are a step closer to where you want to be. It is then just a matter of time. You will get there, you will achieve it – whatever it may be. If you don’t you’ll die trying and then you won’t know anyway. Either way, you will achieve that goal. You will hit that target and you will get to where you want to be.

  2. The only person standing in your way is YOU and your own mind. Take time to invest in yourself, understand what you are capable of and the best way for you to work – that’s going to reduce the time it takes you to tick off those bits you need to do to achieve your goal. Something I have realised recently is how powerful my mind can be. We are wired to make up excuses and I am extremely guilty of that. You can talk yourself out of the smallest of tasks in seconds. So stop. Take control, take ownership of your thoughts and help yourself by setting that little negative voice inside your head to one side. The more you learn that the more you will grow and develop.

  3. The third thing you need to keep in mind is; knowing your worth. If you are keen and eager to achieve something you will meet people along the way who are ready to exploit your hard work, dedication, and talent for their own financial gain. You can create your own standards, determine the value of your work and determine how you should be treated by others. Of course, this ties in with keeping things in perspective as something is only worth what someone else is prepared to pay for it. Be optimistic about your plan but keep everything in perspective with a hint of realism. The more real you are with yourself the faster you will develop. If you set an unrealistic goal and you don’t achieve it you begin putting pressure on yourself that didn’t even exist in the first place.

  4. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t. And I mean anyone! I have had teachers, family, partners, friends and colleagues all tell me ‘you can’t’. “Ollie that just doesn’t happen”, “yes but Ollie how are you ACTUALLY going to do that”, “Ollie that’s too much of a saturated market” etc…. The list goes on. But what I think every time I hear something like that is “yes, but I haven’t done that, I haven’t tried that, people haven’t heard what I have to say and people haven’t seen my take on that”. If someone says you can’t be a comedian – take your phone and record a set and post it online – bam! You are a comedian. If someone says you can’t be a model – take photos of yourself with others and post them. BAM – you are modeling. Do you see where I am coming from? The internet gives you a whole world of opportunity right at your fingertips – it’s up to you how you use it and what you can make of it. Remember some of the biggest artists and personalities we know of today were found online!

Reclaiming My Weekend With Ted Baker.

Modern life is hectic. The to-do list never stops growing, and the phone never stops buzzing. Living life in London in 2018 as self-employed means that every day is some sort of a workday. This usually includes the weekend. Not this weekend. This weekend I am partnering with Ted Baker, slipping on a pair of Ted Baker BRONZO boots out to reclaim my downtime, disconnect and revel in some old-fashioned ‘offline’ fun. First stop: Portobello Road Market, Notting Hill.

Notting Hill is home to the most famous door in Notting Hill. 280 Wilbourne Rd (just off Portobello Road). It’s the front door of Hugh Grant’s house from the feature film ‘Notting Hill’ – it made its way into the film because screenwriter Richard Curtis used to live there! Sadly the door was then sold at auction and later owners painted the new door black as people kept writing on it. The current owners have however re-painted it blue!

Protobello Road Market draws thousands of people to the area. On Saturday’s, market stalls set up to sell original products as well as antiques. From fully reported 19th century telephones to pocket watches and hats – portobello road market oozes tradition and British heritage. Stepping out in my Ted Baker BRONZO Boots, coupled me to the local vintage aesthetic, while enjoying maximum comfort as I explored the various market stalls and shops that line our iconic Portobello Road Market.

*Style Tip* To make your footwear your statement piece – wear one block colour that sits opposite the colour of your footwear in the colour wheel. If the shoes are dark keep your outfit light. If your shoes are light – keep those clothing pieces dark. This will make a statement of your footwear and showoff your stylish footwear.

You know how fun life today can be, it’s cool – we are all living in one of the greatest times that have ever been. But to appreciate where we are, I enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane on Sunday. Reclaiming the second half of my weekend with a visit to ‘The Wallace Collection in my Ted Baker SHINDL Trainers’.

The Wallace Collection is a national museum in a historic London Town house. There are 25 galleries, displaying 18th-century paintings, furniture and porcelain and a world class armoury. It’s like taking a step back in time. The decor, paintings and furniture are absolutely stunning. Each room is like a little movie set – perfect for taking photos!

Comfortably exploring and walking around the Wallace Collection in my Ted Baker ‘SHINDL Trainers’. Worn with Ted Baker trousers, the two couple together for a smart casual look. Looking smart and feeling comfortable often don’t go hand-in-hand with blistering ankles – but not with these Ted Baker ‘SHINDL Trainers’ – they also look the part!

6 WAYS TO BOOST YOUR INSTAGRAM IN 2018

With over 800,000,000 monthly users, of which 100,000,000 call themselves a ‘blogger’ in some format. How do you stand out from all of them? Below are my top 6 tips to point you in the right direction. 

instagram tips, top ig tips, best way to gain followers, how to get followers, instagram top tips 2018, how to improve my instagram, instagram algorithm changes, how to become a blogger, how to be an influencer, byollieb, ollie b London fashion and lifestyle blogger,


1. Stop! What is your account about? 

One of the biggest problems that will stop people following you… Not having a theme or message.

We are all human, so we want to flirt with every little idea we have. But think of your page this way: If I landed on it right now, I liked what I saw and then I followed you – I would then expect to see more of the same type of content that I signed up for when I pressed that ‘Follow’ button. You will lose followers if you are not consistent. So stop. Think about what you want to put out there, and what you are realistically able to put out there.


2. Get Involved In Your Niche.

So you know what you want to publish? Now go out and follow those that are already doing what you do. It’s been rumored that if you ONLY follow people in your niche you are grouped with them within Instagram’s algorithm and will then often be featured as a suggested user on their pages, as IG will group you with those users. This is something I need to do myself – my page started as a personal account and over the past year has developed into the ByOllieB brand, so I don’t want to offend everyone I know in one big unfollow cull haha.

You can follow Hashtags too – so follow a few that are relevant to your page. For example, I follow: #mensfashionpost, #fashionbyollieb and #canon as these are all relevant to my account. This will allow you to see users work within your niche so you can engage with and meet new people. The more you engage within your niche, the more visible you will become. Perhaps I should say niche one more time?.. NICHE.


3. Tell Stories.

Gary Vee’s all-time message is ‘document over create’. However, with Instagram being a visual platform why don’t you try documenting by creating. What I mean by that is; think about your image before you take it. Plan your location, think about a color scheme and buy a few props to help tell that story. Before you know it you have documented by creating.

Use Instagram stories! One of the most powerful tools right at your fingertips. I often watch how people use Instagram and 9/10 times people watch their stories before scrolling through their feeds. The more you post, the more people engage, the higher in that famous algorithm you will become and more people will begin to see your work.

***Top Tip – use popular hashtags in your stories because hashtags have their own stories too – e.g you could watch the ‘#blogger’ story which are images uploaded by users tagging ‘#blogger’ in their stories***

4. Stay Away From Vanity Metrics

I’ll be honest – I have only started doing this a week ago. STOP FOCUSING ON HOW MANY FOLLOWERS YOU HAVE.

Of course, an influencer with 100,000 followers will get paid more for a campaign than 1,000 but that is not why I am saying this.

If you have a genuine following of engaged users, Instagram will help push your content to be seen by a wider audience. The more comments/saves you get within the first 10mins of posting, taken as a % of your following = how well your post is doing. Instagram then raises or lowers your posts visibility dependant on this. So the goal now is to encourage all of your followers to get involved in engaging with your content as soon as it’s live.

Let me help you think this through from another angle… If you have 10 followers but 5 of them are CEO’s of the 5 biggest companies in the world you might just bag the biggest content creating gig you’ve ever had (if they like your content). And you only had 10 followers when getting that deal. 2018 = Quality over quantity for sure – especially if you want these people to invest their money via your affiliate links, robots got no dolla to spend!


5. Caption. Caption. Caption.  

50% Image 50% caption. Your image stops someone from scrolling, the caption will bag the like and/or a comment. Building on what I have already talked about – you want those comments asap! More comments within the first 10mins = more exposure.

So use your caption. Write something meaningful that people can relate to – then at the end ask them a question and open the dialogue.

Don’t then leave the platform once you’ve done the hard work. Stay online during that first 10-20mins and reply to your comments, keep the dialogue open, keep the engagement levels increasing. If 2 people leave a comment and you reply to both you have 4 comments. 4 is better than 2!


6. Repeat 1-5 Consistently. 

Repeat tips 1-5 consistently. Consistently post content that is relevant and meaningful within your Niche and you WILL grow. But I think most importantly be yourself! Don’t start by copying someone – because that’s not sustainable. They have their following for them. Develop you, consistently publish original content and maintain that dialogue. No one else can do you as well as you can!


 

If you found these tips helpful please share the link with your friends on Instagram – let’s open that dialogue.

When it comes to fitness why is everything so expensive? A new kit, new trainers, a new gym membership and there goes £200+. All that expense without burning a single calorie. So why not consider that fresh new kit and join the cross-fit hype for less than £40 today? Putting focus, determination and drive into a healthier lifestyle does not need a flashy price tag.

Primark now has an exceptional new activewear range for men. Having received the range/tried and tested each piece, I wanted to show you guys some of my favorite pieces. I am obsessed with this new collection. Each piece feels long-lasting, looks great, fits perfectly and has an incredibly low price tag.

I am all about feeling great in the gym. I wear outfits that give me a boost in confidence – it helps keep me motivated as I push through the final reps of each set and it just makes me feel good. Having great activewear not only makes me feel good when I’m in the gym working out, but it also helps get me there. I can’t wear this snazzy new Primark kit to dinner, it needs to be worn to the gym. Please don’t overlook the importance of good activewear, it has more of an effect on your fitness than you might realise. If you dress down for the gym you will feel down, and if you feel down you are not in the correct headspace to be getting the most out of your workout.

I love workout out in my activewear from Primark. It also gives me a little satisfaction that my whole kit probably cost a fraction of the guy’s trainers on the treadmill next to me hehe.

MY 2018 RESOLUTIONS!

New Year’s Resolutions 2018 New Year’s Resolutions. A controversial topic. Loved by some, dismissed by others. I agree, January the 1st is as much of a day as 31st December….

New Year’s Resolutions 2018

New Years resolutions 2018 what should my New Years resolutions be? NYE new year byollieb by ollie b ollie Burton influencer content creator UK No.1 men's fashion lifestyle blog 2017 2018 Oliver photographer London travel review reviewer blogger

New Year’s Resolutions. A controversial topic. Loved by some, dismissed by others. I agree, January the 1st is as much of a day as 31st December. But the end of one calendar year and the start of another gives me the opportunity to personally reflect on what has worked, what hasn’t worked and what I want to change. The idea of a new canvas ready for painting from 01/01/18 to add to the other 24 already on the wall is an exciting prospect for me. So I wanted to share a few of my 2018 resolutions with you.


Be Present 

If I’m having lunch with someone, I am going having lunch with someone, not texting other people during that lunch. Being present in the room and giving undivided attention to that person in that moment. If I’m at the gym I’m going to make each minute of that session count and not spend 5 minutes between sets scrolling through Instagram. More time needs to be spent lifting rather than double-tapping. When I’m meeting new people I am going to be more confident with my presence and enjoy meeting new people and enjoy those new conversations.


Time Off 

I’m fully self-employed and have been for 6 years now. When I stop so does any money coming in – holidays and sickness included. That’s been enough to light a fire under my a** to motivate me each day, no one is paying for Ollie if he fancies a holiday! It can be a really tricky way to live because you are your own boss – I need to be better at giving myself at least one day a week off. A day that can be dedicated to seeing family and friends or just doing normal things. Also trusting in my current clientele more means that work will crop up – I need to stop stressing out about the future. It will come soon enough!


Sleep More 

Purely because I’m just a much better human when I have had more than 4 hours sleep. I need to have an hour before bed with no phone and an hour when I wake up without going on my phone. Time to wind down to help me get off to sleep. This one is going to be tricky because I like to be productive and you can’t get much s**t done when you are unconscious. But better sleep will mean better results the next day.


Launch YouTube 

The time has come. 2018 is going to be the year that ByOllieB goes onto YouTube. It’s going to be a few weeks later than I wanted BUT… I need my content to be interesting, relevant and niche enough for you all to enjoy it. I don’t want to upload for the sake of it. I am spending time now thinking about what direction I’m going to take my YouTube channel down to make sure I bring you guys the best I can in 2018.


Focus On Creating Not Numbers 

We all need to make a living, and ‘value’ within this native advertising world is dictated highly by numbers – how many people are going to see your creation etc? I have recently started to worry myself that I am not a ‘big enough’ blogger. Ultimately – there is always going to be someone bigger than me. While size matters (steady…) the content has to be the focus and most important thing. I’m going to spend more time planning, developing and creating. The better the content, the more it will be shared, enjoyed, and engaged with. Perhaps the whole number stress will just take care of itself in the background? Also, I started this whole adventure because I love telling a story through stills and moving imagery. Time to rekindle that and regain my focus.


Hopefully some of these will inspire you ahead of that fast approaching New Year.

Good Luck For 2018!

Ollie xx

2. The Best Vlogging Camera

A question I get asked a lot is what camera gear do I use? The Sony RX100 is a camera I absolutely swear by! It isn’t just for vlogging but if vlogging is something you are into or want to try the Sony RX100 is the kiddy. It’s super easy to use in full manual mode to ensure you get the highest quality video and audio. When creating movies the last thing you want to be stressing about is the technical mubo-jumbo. The Sony RX100 is in the middle price bracket of a decent point and shoot camera’s but has top of the range image quality. I predominantly use mine for video but the image quality is just as sexy. So if it’s travel, food, lifestyle or fashion you are in to – get the Sony RX100 in your shopping basket and watch those Instagram likes rise. The camera comes with a re-chargeable battery, you’ll just need to grab an SD card below. I’ll link it all below here for you. Or Buy on Amazon Here.

Yeah… it’s a toothbrush. And it’s cool. And it’s the most powerful clean you’ll ever have. In a league of its own and uncomparable to competitors, the Foreo Issa carves a mark within the dental industry of its own. Recharge via USB (cable included). The Polymer bristles will last so much longer than a regular toothbrush. I’m not usually a fan of an electric toothbrush but the Foreo Issa bridges the gap between manual and electronic toothbrushes. The Freo Issa massages the gums and inhibits overbrushing, preventing damage to tooth enamel. Plus… it looks good. That bathroom shelf will be looking fly with a Foreo Issa on it ;). If nothing else friends will be asking what even is that? And it comes with a soft leather pouch for traveling. Not your typical gift but remember the importance of dental hygiene, coupled with the long life and high quality of the Foreo Issa and it’s suddenly a really thoughtful gift idea! Check out and shop the choice of colours below.

This bottle is a £20 ticket to sun this winter. If you haven’t tanned or regularly tan this is for you… So wait? That’s everyone! The Hydra Tan mist slowly builds up dependant on how often you use it. Treat someone (or yourself) to a cheeky winter bronze glow and get yourself a bottle or two. This is genuinely my favorite new-found grooming product of 2017. Trust me on this one guys. Shop the Hydra Mist for men here, and shop the women’s below.

This is genuinely the best quality phone case I have ever had to date. Easily. This sexy black croc number is super sleek, beautifully made and protects your phone without compromising the thinness (you know that annoying chunky case effect slapping something on the back of your phone can have? Not here!). Modelled on my iPhone 7+ above, with the ability to emboss the initials of the person you are buying for, the black croc iPhone case from Aspinal is the perfect gift this Christmas. Added bonus: it come’s gift wrapped – that’s one less thing to worry about guys! Shop the case here.

Like the idea of giving a beautiful time keeping piece for your partner to wear and remember you by each day? Don’t have thousands of pounds to spare? Me neither! Henry watches are the solution. Having been lucky enough to own a few Henry watches (as photographed), the minimalistic design and perfect colouring make each timepiece from Henry London stand out. My Henry watch is one of the lower costing watches I own, yet it always receives the most questions and compliments. If the unique square finish isn’t quite doing it for you, then shop a round face which is finished off with a luxury glass dome. The round glass dome gives Henry watches an almost 3d effect – something I haven’t seen from other brands. Henry watches are perfectly priced, perfectly designed, perfectly manufactured and perfect for under your tree this Christmas.

Remember I did a fitness class balancing on a board on water?.. If you have no idea what I’m talking about: I recently was invited to Bose’s aqua fit class at the Haymarket Hotel to experience a fitness class, on a balance board (I fell in, it was in my IG story, it was fun). It was all part of raising awareness for Bose’s brand new product: The SoundLink Micro. Having experienced an in-depth product demonstration, throwing one into the pool and then taking one home – it’s safe to say Bose have done it again! I own the mini link II, but the micro is now my go-to speaker. It’s Water resistant!! What a bonus. With similar sound quality as the mini link II but to be smaller, brighter coloured and a lower price makes this the ultimate wireless bluetooth speaker to gift this Christmas. If you buy two you can use them in party mode – play the same track through both speakers at the same time or put them in stereo mode and one will play the Right while the other plays the Left parts of the studio track. Cool right? Shop the Soundlink Micro below!

GINGER FAKE TANS!!

A ginger getting a fake tan… sounding like a recipe for disaster? Sure as hell didn’t think I would be trying out any fake-tan product in my pale lifetime. Plus……

A ginger getting a fake tan… sounding like a recipe for disaster? Sure as hell didn’t think I would be trying out any fake-tan product in my pale lifetime. Plus… the thought of smelling like a biscuit going to bed and waking up looking as orange as my hair was usually enough to put me off. After-all, fake tan is just for girls right? NOPE. I have actually found a tanning product for men that you can build up as much or as little as you like. The few comments I have had since using the Tan Mist have included: “have you been away recently?”, “Ollie you’re looking brown mate”, “how come you’re looking all bronzed?”. The answer is James Read’s Hydra Tan Mist for Men.

I am writing this after using the Tan Mist for 3 weeks on and off. I wanted this to be as accurate as possible, and to check I didn’t turn into a giant orange. So after nearly a month of using the Tan Mist, I am genuinely amazed at how good it is. You can be as heavy/light handed with it as you like, but the beauty of the Tan Mist is it’s designed to be used over time, so it’s easy to tailor a tan that suits your skin tone. I use roughly 4-6 pumps per use, 3 days per week and that has been enough to take the ghostly pale colour away this winter. The Tan Mist currently costs £20 for a 100ml bottle, which means it’s airline carry-on friendly, and the cost amounts to the same as a few coffees – not bad for some winter sun!

How do you use the Tan Mist ByOllieB?

  1. Spray the mist away from you once to clear the nozzle.
  2. Hold the bottle a little closer than arms distance, and slightly above from your face – ensuring the nozzle is pointed at your face (duh! I may have experienced side-spray during my first use, whoops). Eyes closed and…
  3. Spray once from above down the centre of the face.
  4. Spray once straight on towards the centre of the face.
  5. Spray once from above left (to cover the left side).
  6. Spray once from above right (to cover the right side).
  7. Spray the front and rear of your neck – once each.
  8. Leave to dry for a few minutes.
  9. As you were chaps.

James Read recommends: “Hold the nozzle at arm’s length from the face. Spray evenly in downward motions, working from left to right. Lift chin and spritz onto the neck and under the chin.  Remember to spray the back of your neck. Allow a minute or two to dry. Apply post-shave for a cooling effect or pre-shave for a spray and go tan” (www.jamesreadtan.com).

And that’s it – you’re on your way a cheeky bronzed tint. It takes a few hours to work so be patient and don’t spray extra amounts on-top thinking it hasn’t worked. Go easy on your first attempt following the steps above, if it’s too light or you want to see a bigger change then repeat the steps above twice a day until you are happy. As the Hydra Mist is a water-based product the more you wash your face, the quicker the bronzed look will be removed so keep that balance in mind.

Think of James Read’s Hydra Tan Mist as a little life hack to a cheeky tan. If you haven’t tanned before (like me) or tan regularly it’s worth giving it a try. One of my newfound grooming secrets – that’s not such a secret anymore! 3-4 weeks of use and I have only used 20% of the bottle too while maintaining a light bronze tint. That works out at less than £1.00 per week. Great results for a low price – that’s my kind of grooming product.

Something that I wanted to touch upon is the importance of mental wellbeing. Something that is equally important to your physical wellbeing but easily overlooked and manipulated within our modern, social media dominant world.

Mental welfare has a stronger link to physical welfare than you may realise. The power of endorphins is underestimated. If you are able to maintain regular exercise throughout your week your mind will be healthier and happier – therefore achieving a balanced lifestyle. It’s a simple equation but one that people tend to have their own personal battle with. I’m not suggesting you exhaust yourself trying out an unachievable and unrealistic fitness plan, but try making a do-able plan. Since doing this myself my energy levels have gone up and I feel more present/positive as a person. Take 10 minutes this weekend, write yourself up an achievable plan to get yourself mobile for one hour a day. Getting your heart rate up and keeping active will protect both your mental and physical health – one action = two positive outcomes and a balanced lifestyle.

Social media has the ability to influence our mental wellbeing too. You are reading this because you enjoy the idea and medium of online content sharing (thank you). But it’s important that you follow and read things that spark those positive vibes. The internet has turned into a place of ‘who can shout the loudest’ which as a blogger/creator/whatever you want to call me, can be heavy on the mental welfare. Personally, I have had a tough few months transitioning out of the honeymoon phase of starting up in the social media world. If you feel like you are being out-done on your social media presence, you doubt yourself, you’re doubting your creative ability or yourself as a person. Stop. Focus on you.

Something I have learned the hard way is to look after yourself as well as those around you. Do you, be you and trust you. It’s a fast-paced, manic world out there. Stop worrying about other people and stop comparing yourself to those heavily face-tuned accounts. Find something that makes you happy and share it, the right people will engage with it. Those that don’t but still follow you are still interested otherwise they would have unfollowed you. Let’s look after each other across these platforms, there’s enough international negativity going on, let’s keep social media positive and protected. Positivity costs nothing but protects your balanced mental welfare.

Aside from exercise and online opinions, your diet will hugely impact your mental balance & wellbeing. If you are overloading your system with caffeine/alcohol and eating a nutrient deficient diet you are depriving your mental wellbeing of endorphins. You are then naturally more susceptible to be stressed, get angry and feel negative. Sugar can give your mind ‘spikes’ of quick energy and then heavy crashes which contributes to poor mental wellbeing. Try swapping out sugary snacks for a healthier alternative like ‘Yushoi’ packed full of goodness, which is high in fiber, helping you maintain healthy blood sugar levels. A downward mental spiral has to start somewhere. So take the right steps upwards and away from that to maintain a healthy balance. Surround yourself with people that inspire you, do one thing a day that scares you, try something new each day, go the extra mile when at the checkout and wish someone a lovely day as you walk away and most importantly, remember what you already have; family, friends, qualifications, phones, cameras and even internet access. To be able to have read this you are already in the top 51% of the world’s population. 49% of our world’s population is currently offline.

Stay happy, stay positive and keep working towards your goals, with a bowl full of Yushoi on the side (try their new BBQ flavour!!). Stop when you have achieved your goals, not when you get tired. Keeping pushing for #PerfectBalance.

Commuting around London is overcrowded, expensive, and time-consuming. It is not the pleasant experience you need when getting from A to B in London. I have recently discovered a new way of travel around North East London, that way is ‘DriveNow’. It’s time to brush the dust off your driving license and start using DriveNow instead of your oyster card. How does driving a stylish BMW or Mini instead of taking the tube sound? DriveNow have the all-electric BMW i3 as well as the BMW 1 Series, Mini 3 & 5 door, and Mini Convertibles. Fancy trying them all? They are all available for DriveNow members.

So what is DriveNow? DriveNow is North East London’s Flexible car club, giving its members access to 300+ hi-spec BMW’s and Mini’s which can be parked for free in residents or pay and display bays within the business area (Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest). Members can find a car through the DriveNow app and choose to drive by the minute, hour or day. Parking, fuel, insurance, car tax and a generous mileage allowance are all included in the price.

DriveNow takes away the stress of fuel prices and repair costs. All you need to do is pay for the time you use the car. As soon as you are parked up you can walk away (after locking the car via the app – how cool)! Worried about traffic? While I can’t predict what traffic you could potentially encounter, studies have shown that for every DriveNow car, 11 privately owned cars are taken off the road, easing the traffic situation in London. You are able to park and leave DriveNow cars almost anywhere within the business area which even makes parking flexible and stress-free!

To add greater value, DriveNow members have access to a fleet of over 6,000 vehicles in Munich, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Hamburg, Vienna, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Brussels, Milan, Helsinki and Lisbon. You can pick-up and drop-off your DriveNow cars at the airport. Hop in your BMW i3 in Hackney, drive to city airport, catch your flight and hop back into a DriveNow car at most of the destinations listed above.

DriveNow looks as cool as it sounds. When in the areas of; Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest, open up your DriveNow app, this will show you all the cars available in your area. Tap on them and see what/where they are – they even have their own names! The app will then direct you to the car of your choice. Once at the car just tap ‘Unlock’ and you are in. Bags in the boot and hop into your BMW i3.

The interior of the DriveNow BMW i3 echoes the sleek, cool design of it’s exterior. BMWi is a step into the future, putting you one step ahead on the way you choose to travel. Minimal motor controls inside the BMW i3 keeps operation simple and new user-friendly. If you get confused, the built-in monitor is there to guide you. As I said… Cool right? The BMW i3 is automatic and no key is required to start the car. When reversing the BMW i3’s built-in camera is automatically activated for you to view on the central display, helping you to see obstacles when maneuvering. As you switch to ‘Drive’ the monitor will automatically revert back to the main menu. Relax back and enjoy the BMW i3 drive experience. Driver displays are condensed down to a single monitor on the dashboard, including a digital display of your MPH and millage remaining – so you can see the essentials at a glance.

Use the brushed aluminum dial between the driver and passenger seats to navigate the display. Enter your unique 4 digit passcode (created during the sign-up process) to ‘log-in’ to the car.
