Ready for cruising through next Summer in style? Have a look at the electric MINI Superleggera Vision concept! As announced earlier in Spring this year, this exclusive interpretation of an electric open-top two-seater was created by MINI and Touring Superleggera, the stylish couch builder from Milan. The MINI Superleggera Vision is on the one hand a classic roadster, a compact and agile two-seater, expressing the most minimalist and emotional style of motoring; and on the other hand its electric drivetrain gives the car distinctly modern driving dynamics. The perfectly balanced proportions indicate at first glance what the electrically powered MINI has to offer in terms of a driving experience: the stretched bonnet, long wheelbase and cool, short overhangs convey pure driving fun. As in every MINI, the wheels are set widely on the body, promising a high degree of agility. The passenger cell is slightly set back, further underscoring the car's dynamic impression. The result is a car of classic beauty that is also state of the art. And we sure like it... a lot! This all is still in a concept phase, but as reactions are mainly very positive, BMW announced production could be something of the near future. Fingers crossed! Can you already imagine yourself taking this baby for a spin? JafJaf!

Unu, the electric scooter

unu just launches the ideal urban vehicle with their new electric scooter. Since July 2014, the new electric scooters from Munich-based brand unu move on German roads, available in 65 different color combinations, finally making e-mobility affordable and personalized. This electric scooter, steerable with every car- and moped driving license, has a range of more than 50 km (with a battery) or 100 km (with two batteries). The brake energy recovery system (KERS) even provides you with additional kilometers. unu is powered by a lightweight lithium-ion battery, chargeable for up to six hours of cruising fun from every (home) charging powerpoint. Thanks to the newest generation of lithium-ion cells, the portable battery only weighs eight kg. An integrated charge status display practically shows how much power the battery has left. The Roller itself only weighs 58 kg, which is about half the weight of a comparable Vespa. The innovative electric motor is maintenance free and requires no gears, tank or oil. Easy, clean and emission-free, without finding a parking space in the city. We like! JafJaf!

Details make the difference: Gemini.
It's in the details

It's not easy for men to find stylish accessories. If you want to have something nice, you're mostly obliged to look between the more high-level brands. Let's face it: women have more luck in this area. Or at least, they had... Yes, gentlemen who are looking for something unique, weither they are sporty or business, will from now on find their arm candy at Gemini Bracelets. The Belgian premium brand, founded by twin brothers Marc and Rob Beenders, started out with a personal need for nice accessories for men. Since they were not happy with the available assortment, they just created their own label. Well done, guys.   First in the Gemini-line are the bracelets with beads in different trend-oriented colors. From basic black, to spring green. We really like the tiger eye brown (that makes F's eyes pop) and the tricolor. Each one has its own feel and is perfectly combinable to bring that little extra. Recently the deluxe leather wristbands, that really give that more premium understatement look, joined the family.   We probably don't have to tell you that we're big fans of Gemini. We both have a beads- and a leather bracelet and feel like we're rocking them. How do you like it?   Stylish men who are interested or women who just found the perfect present for their love, can get their bracelets in shops around Belgium, the Netherlands and Portugal (hopefully soon in Germany?) or online via gemini-bracelets.com. Big like! JafJaf! ____________________ Für Männer ist es nicht einfach stilvolle Accessories zu finden . Wenn man etwas Schönes sucht muss man meistens bei den großen Marken oder Handelsketten schauen. Aber 'mal ehrlich: Frauen haben bei diesem Punkt klar den besseren Stand. Oder zumindest hatten sie ihn... (more…)

Der Paketbote hat geklingelt... Meilenshopping! Da wir noch ein paar Flugmeilen von Emirates hatten die am 31. März verfallen sind, haben wir uns auf der Emirates High Street umgesehen um unsere Skywards noch für etwas einzutauschen. Man findet dort alles was man auch im Flugzeug bekommt und noch etwas mehr. Wir mögen gerne schöne Dinge... Der Sommer steht vor der Tür und somit auch der ein oder andere Abend auf dem Balkon, zusammen mit Freunden und einem schönen Glas Weißwein (wenn es nach uns geht immer gerne trockenen Riesling). Dementsprechend haben wir uns am Ende für eine Cool Breather Weißwein Karaffe von Menu entschieden sowie sechs hochwertige Savoy Weißwein Gläser mit Platin Rand von LSA. (more…)
