You Don’t Deserve Nice Things Edition 2

There has been a number of situations i have seen or experienced that just made me go, “nooo what the hell”.  The people responsible, honestly, ‘Do Not Deserve Nice Things’.

1. You get invited to an event and you tell the organisers how things should have been done. Your suggestions at the time of the event/launch or project is not the right time and place and could possibly be the worst thing for a PR to hear at that point.

2. Having a built in messaging system on your blog or website is so not cool. Why not just leave your email address in your bio or contact page. Nobody has time to fill out a contact form, but because you knew that there is an easier way, you do not deserve nice things.

3. Brands and People on Instagram- I have seen so many brands on Instagram ignore their followers. What happened to being social? Many brands are just focused on doing social instead of being “Social”. Isn’t that what Social Media is about? I don’t think you deserve your followers or even those comments. Same can be said about normal everyday Instagram users that flat out scroll pass comments on their photos.

4. Friends that aren’t really friends. Shady and faulty in so many ways. Take yourself to the acquaintance zone, as you don’t deserve nice things. Nice things like a Good Friend.

5. Some of you don’t deserve to be “Put ON”, simply because you fail to manage the relationship post the initial agreement, communication or opportunity.

Karl Lagerfeld is pulling out all the stops for Chanel’s Sound of Music-esque métiers d’art extravaganza in Salzburg, Austria. So much so that he enlisted Pharrell and budding actress Cara Delevingne to duet on an original song,”CC the World,” in a promo video for the show. Not only did Pharrell compose the song, but he’s basically dressed like the prince from Disney’s Cinderella, while Delevingne shows that she knows her way around a fan.

3 Cities To Explore For The Adventurous Traveller

It is that time of the year again, when everyone is looking for  a December getaway. I am one of them and i know that i should have not left it for the last minute. While looking for info on my next trip, I found out that at Club Med you can maximise your holiday experience by choosing 2 different, but incredible destinations all in one trip. Score!! It is called the city stop – a stopover en-route to returning from your Club Med resort. The city stop promises the best both worlds in one holiday: the relaxed, laid back ambience of a resort and the thrilling, high energy buzz of a global metropolis.

When opting for a city stop using Club Med, you get a total access package that covers your airport transfers, premium accommodation from only 4 and 5 star hotels with breakfast included. What’s great is that you can choose how long you want to stay at the city stop, you can do what you want, when you want and all at your own pace.

So all this got me thinking. Which two cities can i visit with Club Med?

Here is where i would like to go:

Istanbul

Turkey’s capital, Istanbul boasts age old architecture and a rich culture. Discover places like Topkapi Palace which was the residence of the Ottoman dominator from the 15th to the 19th century and take in the grandeur of the most beautiful mosque in Istanbul, the Blue Mosque. The labyrinthine and chaotic Grand Bazaar with its 4 000 shops is the heart of the Old City and has been for centuries. After a shopping spree, one can get refreshed at Lokum in Kurucesme, and experience the delights, flavours & beauty of true Turkish delight.

The Istanbul city stop is available for travel to resorts in Turkey, that is, Club Med Palmiye in Antalya and Club Med Bodrum in Bodrum.

Dubai

A modern day oasis with amazing energy and a penchant for luxury that equals only to a few destinations. Experience this Emirate’s futuristic architecture and extravagant shopping complexes all combined with a rich Middle Eastern heritage. For any city stop, you get to choose between three hotels and the following are available for Dubai:

  • The Armani Hotel designed by Giorgio Armani and aptly located on the iconic Burj Khalifa tower
  • Sofitel Hotel, a luxury beachfront hotel with panoramic views of the Persian Gulf
  • The Majestic Tower Hotel, boasting 7 restaurants and bars is located in the Bur Dubai district within close proximity to the international airport and world class shopping centres

Dubai is available as a city stop for travellers heading to Club Med Kani in The Maldives

Singapore

This city state boasts a wide range of fine culture excursions from galleries with a range of art forms to museums with prestigious works. History buffs can explore the well preserved relics in the heritage centres while party animals can revel in a colourful nightlife scene. Lovers of nature can immerse in the many rainforests and botanical paradises available while foodies can revel in Singapore’s renowned street food. Design enthusiasts can take in the incredible architecture in Singapore’s impressive skylines while retail therapy opportunities are plenty in this shopper’s paradise.

Singapore is available as a city stop for travellers heading to Club Med Bali in Indonesia.

I am getting so excited about these amazing destinations. Check out Club Med on wwww.clubmed.co.za and keep up with them on Twitter here: @Club_Med_SA
