THE BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO TRAVEL

Do you wonder how to travel to the places you want to go with little money or where to go once you get to your destination for fun and entertainment?  1515215358026-810111923-810111923.jpgWhen you are an inexperienced traveler, you may have various questions, but not a soul to answer them.  Guess what?  I will give you a guide basic travel so you can conquer 2018 traveling or simply add a destination to your bucket list.  The following are Serina’s travel tips: #1 Always travel Southwest Airlines.  They have the cheapest flights.  Until January 25, 2018, the flights are super inexpensive.  I booked a flight to New York City for $152.  Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it was $152.  If you are local to California, flights to Las Vegas are $40.  These are amazing prices.   Remember with Southwest, your luggage is free for one carry on and one two check-in bags.  Shop Southwest year round for great deals.

#2 Base your vacation on deals.  TRAVEL ON CHEAP DATES ONLY.  When on any airline sight, look for the least expensive date and base your vacation on bargains.  For example, look at the least expensive date, then plan your vacation.  This is a great way to save money.

#3 Chose a hotel that is a 4-star hotel.  The four-star hotel is not the top of the line, but it is not the bottom of the line.  Use your AAA card for deals or sign up for a hotel reward card,  Also, Hotels.com have a deal for travelers for after five stays, the next hotel is free.  Remember to read the hotel reviews and chose hotels that modern rooms and not floral bedspreads.  Floral bedspreads are tacky and dated.  This will give an idea if the hotel has been upgraded or still trapped in the 1980’s.

#4 Travel to participate in an event.  If you are a sports fan, travel to see a sports event on your vacation.  If you want to see the New England Patriots play football, make the reason for your vacation.  es, I am a Patriot fan.  That is why I use them as an example.CHose seats at the stadium of an arena that within your budget.  Make sure it is worth paying for and you have a good view of the team.  If not, go to a sports bar to see the game.  The sports bars are fun and great for social skills.  Going to an event that you enjoy on vacation makes the vacation more exciting.  Beach vacations are usually the best because the beach is free.

#5 No more rental cars.  We are in the 21st century.  You only need a rental car for distance trips while on vacation.  Go Uber or Lift.  It is easy and inexpensive.  When you in New York City, hit the subway.  New York subway system goes everywhere.  You can also travel from New York to Connecticut and New Jersey by subway.  Another option is the Mega Bus.  This is a great way to travel as well from adjoining state to adjoining state for cheap. Make your New York trip into a three-state trip. Do not forget to drop into Macy’s while in New York.  I spent seven hours in there.  It is unbelievable.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, BOOK YOUR FLIGHT AND GO!

FINE AND 40 SOMETHING 

Being in your 40’s is the best time of your life. You have learned enough to not make irresponsible mistakes and you should be at the top of your game in your craft.  But what about the exterior?  Yaaasss, ladies in their 40’s are also concerned about our appearance.  A 40 year old diva does not wear clothes that make her look 20. A 40 year old diva wears clothes that make her look FIRST CLASS. Unfortunately,  there are 40 year old women who try to wear hair, shoes, and clothes to attempt at being 20. They are fighting the natural aging process. There are days that even I wonder, “should I wear that? ” If you question it, do not wear it.

If you want others to view you as mature and intelligent,  you must look mature and intelligent.  Maturity and intelligence are sexy. Being mature and intelligent does not  mean you should go out and purchase polyester pants and become a golden girl. It simply mean, dress to be CLASSY. Anybody can look like a project princess (There is not anything wrong with living in the projects. I am just not a fan of living there on purpose). But looking like you have class, takes work.

Routine for woman over 40 consist of: #1 comb your hair daily. Please make sure you have a comb in your purse. #2 Do not wear exotic make up. Adult women look like birds with too much color on their eyes. Stop it. #3 If you have hair extensions or wigs, please do not wear them really long. It is not attractive.  Looking like a person that belongs on a corner is not lady like. #4 Keep a manicure and pedicure. If you cannot afford it, do it yourself.  Make Saturday morning,  spa day. #5 Do not wear tight clothes, especially a size too small. I will leave that to your imagination.  It is not pretty. 

Remember divas,  40 is fabulous.  Let’s get it in divas.

The So Cal Life

Ladies and Gentlemen, Southern California is the best place to live in the United States.  Yes, I said it.  We have great weather.  Unfortunately, the East Coast appears to be in blizzard-like conditions currently.  There is no need for a sweater in Southern California.   Southern California has beautiful beaches, amusement parks, two professional basketball teams, two hockey teams, two professional football teams, three professional baseball teams, Hollywood nightlife, Beverly Hills shopping, and great weather.

There is not a need on the West Coast for bomber jackets and snow boots.  On the East Coast and the North, diva’s can not look great and divalicious as we can in Los Angeles.  We can wear our sandals with pedicured toes.  Our hair is neatly displayed without a hat, scarf, and baseball cap because it is cold.  Do not misunderstand, I love New York City.  It is beautiful.  However, it is cold.  Anything below 50 degrees is ridiculous.  Come visit us in Southern California.  You may not want to return back to the North Pole.  I apologize East Coast for your weather.  I will catch you in the summer months at Macy’s in New York.
