How About a New York Vacation?

How About a New York Vacation?

I’ve always wanted to celebrate New Years Eve in Times Square. Being the dreamer that I am; I usually look at travel and accommodation rates this time of year, just in case an opportunity to travel should arise. This year is no different. There’s only one place I wish to visit this December: New York City. Yes, I am obsessed.

The irony is, that many New York City residents are probably looking to get away from the city during this time of year. But for small village boys like me, the big apple would be the perfect holiday destination.

For those who are planning on vacationing in New York City this year, Condé Nast recently announced the Top 25 Hotels in New York City from their Readers Choice Awards. The top 5 from the list include; the Trump International Hotel and Tower coming in at number one, with Langham Place Fifth avenue, Greenwich Hotel, Andaz 5th Avenue, and Surrey Hotel to follow. Visit Condé Nast for the complete list. I would’ve shared it here but unfortunately, that is against their terms of use, and I’m not yet popular enough to be considered an insider with permission to use their content. Maybe some day? Maybe I should sleep my way to the top? Or maybe I’ll just build my own media empire. Yes, I’ll do that. I’ll build my own media empire, emigrate and open offices in New York City and become your number one online fashion, lifestyle and travel news source. Watch this space!

In the meantime, you can read all about the awesomeness of New York City hotels in the Condé Nast Traveller, and you can secure bookings directly from the hotels via the links provided. However, booking directly from New York City hotels is often more expensive than working through a travel agent or booking online through a website that offers great travel deals. You can book online to Experience New York City Deals with OneTravel.com Promo Code: NY20 How About a New York Vacation? – Not only does OneTravel offer great deals, but this promo code can also provide you with further discount. If you’re fortunate enough to travel to New York City this year, book your stay through OneTravel.

Introducing the Verado Sneaker

Introducing the Verado Sneaker

I couldn’t stop thinking about shoes today. More specifically, running shoes, because I’ve been getting into the whole jogging thing lately. I browsed some of my favorite online stores and came across this beauty…

Meet the Verado; an elegant sneaker from the original lifestyle footwear brand, Creative Recreation. The marriage of sport and fashion is amalgamated into this stylish running shoe. Finely crafted materials come together atop a debonair sole. The premium leather back gives the impression of class and style, while the breathable woven nylon front inoculates a sporty mien. Running shoes for men never looked this good.

Available in both Forest Green and Black Red; the Verado sneaker pairs beautifully with casual or athletic attire, and a traditional lightweight runner sole provides exceptional comfort throughout the day. The Verado is an easy pick for almost any occasion, day or night. Personally, I’m having trouble deciding which style is more beautiful. I actually want them both. There’s no such thing as “too many pairs of shoes” now, it there? I think not.

Before this article becomes an uncanny text-based rendition of OMG SHOES; let me continue using big words to explain this awesome footwear. Besides, that was so 2007. Nowadays; it’s all about editorial sophistication. I’m actually really getting into this. Who knew that one could delineate such fine words about what we put on our feet. You can expect to see a lot more of this on here. Now, where were we…

The Verado Sneaker is a distinguished culmination of chic sporting. In traditional runner style, the gum-rubber outsole wraps around the toe-tip, with a thin EVA midsole reaching back from the toe-tip to become a thicker two-tone EVA midsole under the heel area. A classic chukka boot style leather and suede mid-top sneaker back, is fused through quality sticking, with a breathable heavy-woven nylon sneaker front.

Details include printed logo’s on tongue-tops, quality laces, and either a pigskin inner-lining for the Forrest Green Verado, or a mesh inner-lining for the Black Red Verado.

The unique silhouette of these premium running shoes for men will help you stand out in the city. SHOP NOW!

Be a Snapchat Whore, Literally

Be a Snapchat Whore, Literally

Now you can be a Snapchat whore. And I don’t just mean that you can send naughty Snapchats showing your cooter to everyone, since you’re already doing that. Thanks to a new partnership between Square and Snapchat, you can actually send cash via Snapchat; Snapcash. Go on, make the creepers open their wallets before you open your beef curtains.

Ok, so that’s not the intended use, is it? Nope? Well, we all know that’s exactly where it’s going. I bet more than 90% of Snapchat users use it purely for sending nude pics that self-destruct after a while. The first thought that popped into my head with the Snapcash announcement was; WHORE! Let’s be serious for a moment, why else would you want to send anyone cash over Snapchat? Maybe for one of the reasons shown in this SnapCash video ad?…

Ok, so maybe being a whore isn’t the main purpose, but we all know that’s what it’ll become. Am I the only one brave enough to call it what it is, or am I wrong? Go on, get Snapchat with Snapcash and send your sweethearts some dollars for pictures of their no-no areas.

You can download Snapchat for free from the App Store [here].

And now, The wonderful lyrics to this oh so innocent looking video ad… Continue Reading

Never Be Hungover Ever Again

Never Be Hungover Ever Again

This post brought to you by Never Hungover.com. The content and opinions expressed below are that of David Venter | DAVIDVENTER.NET.

Another weekend, another fun night out. You had it all planned; meeting up with your besties at your apartment, mixing up some cocktails to get you all buzzed and tipsy, while you help each other groom for your night out. You’re going clubbing, and you plan on drinking quite a lot, so you’re taking a cab, instead of driving there yourself. Safety first, right? You arrive at the club, already tipsy from those delicious Mojitos you skillfully mixed up for everyone back at your apartment. After all, it’s more fun to arrive when you’re already in a tipsy party mode. You spend the night having the time of your life; getting completely knackered with your besties. You down cocktail after cocktail, then some shooters, maybe even bottle of champagne to celebrate how totally awesome you are. Life is beautiful, and you are drunk; having the best time, ever!

The next morning; you wake up, unsure of just how exactly you got home, because you can’t remember everything from last night. You giggle to yourself at how totally trashed you were, but your head is killing you, and the sound of your own giggle makes your head feels like it’s going to explode. Your room-mate brings you a cup of coffee, but you nearly murder them for saying good morning. Hangover level: Extreme. Everyone should shut up, and you shouldn’t move an inch. Bring the water, the painkillers, the silence, and hide your head in darkness underneath your pillow. You feel like you’re about to die, and you vow to never ever drink again. This is it. This is the last time!

However,  we all know that you’re going to drink again, and you’ll probably wake up with another killer hangover at some point. But, what if you could have all that awesome fun, without the hangover. Of course you can! Preventing a hangover is as simple as consuming a tasty, lemon flavored, zero calorie, zero carb, and zero sugar pre-drink shooter or mixer known as Never Hungover:

10665126 585280524917237 4161644820124292001 n Never Be Hungover Ever Again

For optimal effect, drink 2oz of Never Hungover per every 4 alcoholic drinks. You won’t be hungover the next morning, and you won’t have to lie to yourself about never wanting to drink again. You’re welcome!

But, don’t just take my word for it; Paris Hilton used it at her 2014 birthday party. It was also seen on The Doctor, and given to guests at Lauren Conrad’s wedding. Never Hungover is available in 2oz and 750ml bottles online from their website and Amazon Prime, or offline at GNC.

Let’s Talk About What We Want

Let’s Talk About What We Want

Too many people talk about what they don’t want, or complain about what they hate. Even I am guilty of that. We like to nag and complain about things that upset us or situations that we want to get away from; It’s human nature. “My head hurts, there’s nowhere to go, there’s nothing to do, he doesn’t like me, what if they don’t like me, this house is too small, this neighborhood is lame, I don’t like them, I don’t want this, someone got killed, there was an accident, they’re invading a country, my vagina hurts, etc.”

So many complaints, so much focus on what we DON’T WANT. We bitch, we moan, we complain in hopes that venting about problems or talking about issues will fix the situation or make us feel better. After all, no harm done in talking about it, right? We’re “just saying.” It’s not like our constant negative focus and complaints can do any harm, right? Talking about it will make us feel better and maybe enable us to find a solution, right? … WRONG! Continue Reading

Let’s Procrastinate Together

Let’s Procrastinate Together

I was going to write a really awesome blog post for you fine people to read; something to make you to laugh until your genitals explode, but maybe later. You see, today is all about being a lazy bum, because everyone needs to chill and do absolutely nothing sometimes.

To be honest, I think I’ve been hustling a bit too hard lately, and not the good kind of hard either. Wait, why is hustling even an expression? It sounds kind of like I’m standing on some street corner. Five dolla me love you long time? No? Well, you get my point? It’s the weekend, so I have society’s permission to chill out, procrastinate, masturbate, etc. I’ll catch up with you again tomorrow. Now go out and party, or procrastinate, or whatever.

Before I bid thee farewell till the morrows, I shall leave thee with this video from BuzzFeed…

Let’s not procrastinate any longer! Let’s get to work!

I’m totally going to do some work right now, but first, let me take a selfie or write a poem. xoxo

Nick Jonas Dropped His Pants On TV

Nick Jonas Dropped His Pants On TV

I’m obsessed with Nick Jonas, not because of his music (I actually don’t really favor his tunes), but because he’s, in my opinion, the hottest guy on on the planet right now. The thirst is real! I mean, Just look at this…

nick jonas 625x407 Nick Jonas Dropped His Pants On TV

Fuck me, right? Like, HELLO HUSBAND! I thought that I didn’t really have a type, but I definitely do, and Nick Jonas is 100% my type, in terms of appearance anyway.

He was on The Ellen Show recently, and Ellen asked him to take his shirt off, but instead, he responded with; “I’m done taking my shirt off, I did get some really good underwear from you so I’m going to now take my pants off.

“Oh my lord,” Indeed. Dear Nick Jonas, I love you! You are God! Please marry me! xoxo

Scientists Are Making History Again

Scientists Are Making History Again

Africa is really hot! Ok, yes, I know; Captain Obvious here, at your service. But really; today was just exceptionally hot and humid here in this small village of Mbombela. I literally couldn’t function. I just wanted to take off all my clothes and run into the ocean. But the ocean is about a two-hour drive away, so that would be a really long run, and I’d probably get arrested for public indecency. So, I scrapped that Idea and just vegged out on the couch underneath a ceiling fan, working through my email inbox, and watching TV series, instead of nude-running. No nude running? Tragic, right? Anyway, let me get to the point of this article: The Rosetta Mission.

While I’ve been sitting on my couch, working through emails, and complaining about the African heat; some awesome Scientists and Engineers landed a space probe on a comet. That kind of makes me feel somewhat unproductive. Maybe I should go to college and become a scientist so that I can explore space, instead of writing about how I want to run naked through the streets? But if I do that, then you won’t have this really awesome blog to read. So I’ll keep doing what I’m doing. You’re welcome.

Check out this amazing three-part video series of the Rosetta Mission below…

For the first time in history, scientists are attempting to land a robotic probe on a comet – the final and most challenging stage of the Rosetta mission. Nature Video is at the European Space Agency’s mission control in Darmstadt, Germany to bring you almost-live coverage of events.
