Celeb Obsessed: Bon Voyage!

January 8, 2010

This will come as no breaking news that most of us average Joe’s cannot afford, nor have the privilege to live the lives of Hollywood’s rich and famous. This however does not mean we can’t try. Sure we can’t do things to the same degree as celebs do it, but this should not stop us from living our lives fabulously.

Most of the time I am not that envious of celebs, sure they get to wear the latest fashion straight off the runway, they get to dine out at the world’s best restaurants and go to the most awesome openings and premiers… Ok so maybe I’m just a tad bit envious!! I will though, admit that I turn green with envy when I see pictures of celebs on holiday. They travel in such class and to the most exotic locations. They sail the sea on magnificent yachts and bathe on paradise beaches.

As I said, not all of us can afford such luxurious holidays but this does not mean we can’t go on holiday at all. There is nothing wrong with a small hotel and eating where the locals eat. (I think it is more fun anyway) I am prepared to sacrifice some things for an amazing destination.

I thought I would help you out with a few popular celeb holiday destinations, because let us face it… If celebs love it I am sure we will find it pretty acceptable.

The first country we’re jetting off to is favourites to the beautiful people of the world. Niomi Cambell and Gisele Bundchen love Rio de Janeiro. It has a party atmosphere while still being a beach paradise. What can I say? Best of both worlds!

This will come as no surprise as it is known to be one of the most romantic cities in the world. Paris makes the list as a key destination for celebs. Paris Fashion week brings in the celebs as it is the event to be spotted at. We all know how tough watching fashion shows can be, so they also take the opportunity to get some rest and relaxation while in Paris. Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gylenhaal frequent this romantic city on a regular basis. If beach paradise is not your thing but classic French is then Paris is the place to go.

If celebs don’t feel like the shlep of travelling internationally, they choose the local holiday destination of Hawaii. Hastle free holiday, while still catching an amazing tan. Sasha Baron Cohen, Britney Spears and Oprah Winfrey all love the little islands Hawaii has to offer.

Then there is always magical Italy where Eva Langoria and hubby Tony Parker holiday in their down time. I am sold…Best fashion, Best looking men, best wine and best pasta and pizza!

We are coming to the end of our popular celeb holiday destinations round up. This last country is a pretty recent addition to the list but its wealth and opulence bring David and Victoria Beckham to Dubai for their vacations. Dubai is known as “the star of the Middle East” so it would only be fitting that “stars” go and visit.
