Celebrities may be nothing more than humans going about their lives as humans do—just like us!—but one thing they definitely don’t have to worry about is the phenomenon the rest of the first world refers to as “taking time off work.” If you’re a celebrity, and you’re not shooting a movie or a TV show or touring the world or working on an ad campaign or putting in face time at a public event, then congratulations! You’re on vacation right now.

Your friend may post beachy photos geotagged in Miami every day when you know full well she’s just sitting at her desk shivering from the A/C, but with celebrities, it’s authentic.

Life is still worth living, even if you maxed out your PTO hours on dark winter mornings when you were too hungover to get out of bed.

Alessandra Ambrosio coined the #foreveronvacation hashtag.

For a less all-eyes-on-me approach, make like Ruby Rose and gaze wistfully down at the sand on the shoreline, fully clothed, with Mykonos looming in the background.
