Competition: Break Free from traffic with a brand new GO LIVE 820 TomTom SatNav

By Laura on July 28th, 2011

We have teamed up with our friends over at TomTom to help you break free from traffic by giving you the chance to win a brand new GO LIVE 820 satnav!

TomTom recently commissioned a study to find out more about the psychological effect of traffic on drivers. They discovered that it’s not just a massive pain, but can actually increase stress levels. In fact women suffered an 8.7% increase in stress from driving in traffic, whilst men suffered a staggering increase of 60%. The report went on to suggest that long term exposure to traffic related stress could potentially become hazardous to your health.

TomTom kindly wants to help one of our readers break free from traffic by offering you the chance to win a new GO LIVE 820.The device comes complete with TomTom’s HD traffic service, providing updates every two minutes to help drivers steer clear of delays. In fact it delivers accurate traffic information seven times quicker than any other provider and gives you speed camera warnings, weather reports and information obtained via Local Search with Google.

To celebrate the launch of the GO LIVE 820, TomTom have recruited a host of UK celebrities including John Cleese, Chris Kamara, Scott Mills, and Ronan O’Gara to provide a little comic relief around the stresses of being stuck in traffic.

So if you would like have a chance of winning a GO LIVE 820 device worth £199.99, visit and
‘Like’ the official TomTom Facebook page, watch the John Cleese video and answer the
following question in the comments section below:

What three items does John Cleese take out of his glove compartment?

a) Bunny ears, rubber gloves and a CD
b) Sun glasses, a tennis ball and a CD
c) A sandwich, a bowler hat and a CD

(Competition closes on Thursday 25th August 2011. Only UK fans will be eligible to win the prize. Winner will be picked at random.)

Dress well? Yeh, prove it then

By Jonathan Smith on September 16th, 2008


Are you Esquire’s Best Dressed Real man? He is, rather he was. Frank Kelly, a Business Development manager from Miami, won the 2007 accolade along with a shed load of prizes and now Esquire is on the hunt for someone to steal Frank’s (manly) crown. Along with the title there is a prize package worth $40,000 including an IWC watch, a round trip flight in a Leare Jet, a $10,000 Esquire wardrobe and a trip the Ney York City.

The EBDRM website is chocked full of profiles and though most of the competition is laughable (seriously check out the site- I laughed for like a week) there are some diamonds in the rough so don’t count yourself a shoe in just because you own a waistcoat.

Check out the EBDRM website and get yourself a profile because you never know, you could be the style guru Esquire is looking for.

Polyvore: The Beloved Tool is Brandished!

By Will Reid on August 25th, 2008


One of my own punk-inspired ‘sets’ combines Dries Van Noten trousers, a Uniqlo t-shirt, an image of inspiration and a black crayon with Vans for some high fashion-DIY.

Polyvore has long been the talk of fashionistas and our sister site, Catwalk Queen, runs a ‘Style This’ competition based completely around the image-making tool. Whether it’s a Vivienne Westwood tie or a Topman ring, styling outfits has never been easier! Granted, we men have it a bit harder in terms of finding a wide variety of items but just search for ‘man bag’ and you have a good page of man-bags.

And best/worst of all? After you’ve styled your outfits you can even buy everything you’ve included in your image.

Look out for more Brandish outfits or watch the Polyvore tutorials and send your own to isabelle [at]!

Brandish Poll: How Tidy Is Your Wardrobe?

By Will Reid on July 30th, 2008

ocd closet.jpgFashionista has been sent a pic of one reader’s wardrobe (above)- her shoeboxes are transparent, her clothes are colour-coordinated, everything is obsessively neat and you can only imagine she has an itsy-bit too much time on her hands. Brandish Editor Isabelle has opened up her wardrobe for a new Catwalk Queen feature and it’s certainly isn’t that meticulous!

So, while my wardrobe is most definitely not as organised as the Fashionista reader (I keep all my clothes in drawers and after too long away from home have a habit of living out of a suitcase,) we at Brandish want to know how tidy your wardrobe/closet/clothes space is?
