My favourite car ever was a ‘vintage’ VW Golf MK1 Cabriolet, we used to call her White Lightening. She was pretty special until things started to go wrong with her. The perils of having an older car in London and parking by the roadside really. She should have had a garage at her age.

One day her accelerator peddle just dropped clean off (I now know how to fix this problem!), another day I found her flooded (leaves stuck in the grills) and then one day, we were driving back from Reading Festival and I can’t even tell you what happened because I still don’t know. She just started coughing and spluttering, like she wasn’t getting enough petrol through to the engine, going 70mph on the motorway, she just kept dramatically slowing down for no reason. To say it was scary was a bit of an understatement.

We pulled over not too sure what to do and whilst I paced back and forth and my passenger cracked open a leftover beer another car pulled up behind us. In this instance there was no doubt about it, he was our Everyday Hero! We were probably overly trusting looking back but we followed him to his house which he assured us was nearby and he tried to drive the car himself to work out the problem. Afterwards, he did some tinkering under the bonnet and away we went again! It could have been the start of a horror movie, sure, but this day we were lucky and the guy just genuinely wanted to help us out. The moral of the story? Not everyone is a murderer. The question though is, what sort of motorist are you?

The RAC are trying to find out with a quiz that you can find here.

Are you:

An Everyday Hero

You’re the real champion of the roadside: a modern-day white knight, saving the day for the broken-down and stranded. If only there were more drivers like you...

A Reserved Rescuer

In an emergency, you’ll step into some hero boots – but you’d rather stay safely behind the wheel. After all, you do have a life to lead.

A Drive-on byer

You cruise down the road and don’t care for interruptions. You’d rather drive on by than help road users in dire straits. In your car, time behind the wheel is about looking after Number One.

Why not take the test and find out. Really we would have done better just having some sort of RAC cover and looking back I think we did but we didn’t have the paperwork - this was well before the days of docs, reliable internet on phones and me being grown up enough to remember all this kind of stuff!

The RAC has been going yonks, first formed in 1897, it’s been looking after the needs of its members and championing the interests of drivers for more than 120 years!

The RAC is the motorist’s champion and campaigns to support the interests of its members

and UK drivers at a national level. This includes voicing concerns about the increasing cost of motoring, particularly the price of fuel and the high level of tax levied on it, advancing levels of road safety, and supporting the needs of all drivers, from young to old.

The highly anticipated Pam Hogg show was as fashionably late as ever. But it's always worth the wait.

The designer, known for her trademark catsuits and skintight dresses took a more romantic turn for spring/summer 2019. The collection, named 'Dr Hogg's Fantastic Fabulon' was a techni-colour dream, with hazy silhouettes in soft shades and frivolous frills.

Extravagant head pieces threatened to topple the models as they demanded attention from their sheer height. Explosions of tulle burst from skirts, sleeves and even shoes. These candy coloured frills in pink, yellow and baby blue were in contrast to large areas of exposed skin.

In keeping with the otherworldly theme, eyelashes were elongated down the cheek, creating an eery doll-like look.

A sensational show that was made to entertain, dazzle and impress. Pam Hogg proves her creative mastermind once again.

Malaysian designer, Cassey Gan, clearly has an eye for geometry. A lively and vibrant palette in bold prints embodies her spring summer 2019 collection, revealed at Fashion Scout's show at Freemason's Hall.

In reaction to Malaysia's altering political scene, the bright and colourful aesthetic stands for her hopeful and optimistic spirit. Inspired by David Hockney's sixties pop art, Cassey Gan uses strokes of colour and print-on-print to create a sense of controlled chaos, reminiscent of Hockney's work.

For the first time in 60 years, Malaysia has seen a change of government; and with change comes uncertainty. To rival this feeling of unease, Cassey Gan has focused on the bright future that this could bring for younger generations with the spirit of nationalism and patriotism demonstrated throughout the entire country.

Having grown up in a country that is very diverse in culture, the designer is accustomed to being inclusive. She always designs with customers of all races and different sizes in mind. This outlook is also apparent at her shows, using a diverse range of models.
