These Celeb-Inspired Vacation Destinations Need To Be Added To Your Summer Bucket List ASAP

Life & Travel

The only thing that could make this hot girl summer any warmer is an impromptu vacation with you and someone you love, and luckily, xoNecole has a list of celebrity-inspired vacation destinations that are perfect for the occasion. Day after day, month after month of doing the same old thing can make even your best life feel boring, and there's no better way to switch up your routine than with a little R&R; in a foreign land, even if that means taking a Greyhound to a destination only a few hours away.


Whether you decide to get flewed out with your girls or plan a romantic baecation for your man, these five destinations deserve to be at the very top of your list.

Adrienne Bailon - Palm Springs, California 

If you're itching for a quick trip without leaving the country, Palm Springs can end up being the USA-bound getaway of your dreams. While Adrienne Houghton stayed at The Parker Palm Springs, which has luxury rooms starting at $229 a night, there are a number of stylish hotels and restaurants for you to visit while you're in this high-end Sonoran Desert destination. For even more adventure, try horseback riding in the canyons or go hiking in the mountains nearby.

Ciara - Fiji

Ciara and Russell Wilson just celebrated their three-year wedding anniversary in one of the happiest countries in the world, and now we want to go, too. With an abundance of botanical sanctuaries, white sand beaches and coconut palms, the only real question is why wouldn't you want to catch a flight to Fiji this summer?

Tracee Ellis Ross - Italy

Home of the Vatican, Italy is the answer to keeping your summer vacation on the lowest of keys. When in Rome, you do as melanated queens do and chill TF out. Tracee Ellis Ross was a whole mood when she kicked off the first day of summer with a sexy selfie of her poolside swim body in Europe.

Nelly & Shantel - The Bahamas 

Nelly and his longtime girlfriend Shantel Jackson are heating up the summer early with their recent baecation to the islands. Although beautiful beaches and crystal clear oceans are reason enough to book you and your boo a flight to the Bahamas, there is so much more to explore beyond the cruise ship.

Tessa Thompson, Aja Naomi King, Gabrielle Union - Paris, France

Tessa Thompson, Gabrielle Union, and Aja Naomi King just pulled up in Paris and gave us the Brown Skinned Beauty R&B album cover we didn't know we needed. Traditionally, the city is seen as a vacay for lovers, but these Black girls in Europe prove that Paris is one destination you and your girls need to add to your bucket list ASAP.

My relationship with relaxers has been a bit of a cryptic one. While I did get my hair permed quite a bit during my adolescence, once I cut my hair short—really short—in college, I transitioned over to a mild texturizer; something that, by the way, is also a relaxer (it's just not as strong). Up until a few years ago, I would go in and out between a texturized TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro) and a completely natural (including no hair dye) Afro.
