Taylor Swift, Lauren Conrad, & 14 More Celebs Whose Holiday Vacations Will Make You Jealous — PHOTOS

With the holidays comes a sorely needed two week-ish break from school, work, or whatever other full-time gig is bringing you down. During this time, you are most likely sitting in your plush bathrobe watching reruns of Community on your laptop whilst finishing off the last of the Christmas cookies and Hanukkah gelt. But not celebs, no. Celebrities are taking advantage of their time off by trotting the globe and doing way cooler things than you are. Let's take a look at their vacations and maybe it'll prompt you to get off your couch and take a shower, at the very least.

Beyonce & Jay Z

How do two people vacation so much and still somehow rule their professions? Anyway, despite my conspiracy theories that they own a green screen to take exotic photos in front of, they look like they’re having a damn good time.

Sam Smith

Basking in the sun in Sydney, Australia where it’s summer. Ugh.

Taylor Swift

OK, maybe it’s not an exotic vacation but playing with cute babies is definitely a good way to spend some time off.

Nina Dobrev

Tropical vacations aren’t the only way to spend the holiday break. For instance, Nina Dobrev skis instead because she’s cool and adventurous. And Canadian, so she’s used to the cold.

Brooke Davis prefers a snowy retreat as well.

And, Lastly, a Not-So-Great Vacay...

I know, it’s hard to believe Biebs isn’t somewhere tropical. He’s too busy trying and failing to tear up the concrete jungle on his skateboard. Someone get that boy some safety equipment.
