Celebritease: Stars on spring break

Didn’t make it to a warm beach this spring break? That’s OK, you can live vicariously through Taylor Swift and her dream vacation with boyfriend Calvin Harris. The couple set off for a tropical celebration of  love, which included kissing on the beach and riding jet skis. When the couple had to get back to “reality,” they headed to Las Vegas, where Swift partied in the crowd, supporting Harris in concert.

The duo wasn’t the only couple to take some time off from hectic schedules — Amy Schumer and Ben Hanisch were spotted on a tropical getaway, paddle boarding and jumping off boats. When the comedian and furniture designer returned with tan lines, they jumped on the bandwagon to see the hit Broadway show “Hamilton.”

Now back to Swift, who didn’t sit still for long — she stopped by Reese Witherspoon’s 40th birthday party on Saturday, March 19. As Witherspoon looked fabulous in a sparkly dress and not a day over 30, Swift took the stage to sing “Shake it Off.” Kate Hudson posted a collage on Instagram from the night and Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, Courteney Cox and Matthew McConaughey were also attendees. If only Witherspoon would give out her secret for never aging.

Rob Kardashian also celebrated his 29th birthday over the weekend. Despite the recent drama surrounding his relationship with Blac Chyna and avoidance of his family’s reality television show, his famous sisters came out to celebrate. Kardashian, the family’s sole male, didn’t have his girlfriend at the party, but sister Kourtney’s ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick, was at the bash. Instagram blew up with pictures of the Malibu dinner, which marked a new step for Rob, who had been hidden from the limelight for the past few years.

Nick Lachey seemed to try to  avoid the spotlight on St. Patrick’s Day, but even with a faux red beard, he couldn’t evade the paparazzi with wife, Vanessa, in Dublin, Ireland. The cute couple attended the St. Patrick’s Day parade in the heart of Ireland, while also packing in some sightseeing. They stopped by the Guinness Factory on Tuesday, March 15, and even stopped to take pictures with fans.

Prince Harry embarked on an adventure of his own on Saturday, March 19. He visited sites in Nepal that were affected by the recent earthquake and paid tribute to strength of the people there. The prince sat with locals and used traditional tools to help restore local carvings that had been damaged in the April 15, 2015 earthquake. On Sunday, March 20, he visited a temporary camp that currently shelters 250 people and was seen speaking with a 15-year-old survivor. He met with Nepal’s first female president, Bidya Devi Bhandari, and told her he was looking forward to opening the Girls Summit later in the week — swoon. Even though spring break is over, I could take some time off to accompany the prince on any of his upcoming trips.
