If you live in the USA, you now know what a polar vortex feels like. Congratulations. For those of you who might not have experienced the freezing temperatures and blizzards, there’s no other way to describe it other than “very sucky.” Unfortunately for most, we’re kind of stuck with it, lacking the requisite bank balance and time off work to escape to warmer climates. Not true for celebrities, though. Those cashed-up beauties are jet setting all over the place to avoid the cold and flaunting it on their social media accounts, leaving the rest of us soothingly jealous.

So, as we dream of tropical sunsets and drinks served in coconuts, the likes of Mariah Carey and Aubrey Plaza are scooting off to Mexico for a quick nap in the sun. Bikini clad and bronzed, these babes sure know how to hide from a polar vortex. Although we can’t help but feel that some—those lucky enough to live in places like LA and Miami—are giant wimps, going from their already sunny locales to even more exotic locations in search of yet MORE warmth. It’s just greedy.

We’ve evaluated the vacations of Rihanna, Solange Knowles, Bar Refaeli and more, juxtaposing the weather they’ve escaped with the weather they’ve escaped to. While some seem frivolous, others are well deserved (anyone leaving New York, for instance). Dream on, and check out some sexy celebs who’ve hit the beach to avoid the snow.
