She’s helped Jennifer Aniston keep her enviable shape. Now Mandy Ingber, yoga teacher to the stars, can help you — she’s just asking for 28 days. In her new book, Yogalosophy, Ingber — whose other celebrity clients have included Helen Hunt, Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Beckinsale — walks readers through a day-by-day journey toward greater health, fitness and overall wellness and renewal.

But what happens if you’ll be traveling over the next 28 days? Few things can put a crimp in a traveler’s fitness-training style quite like a hectic travel schedule, especially over the long Memorial Day weekend. Don’t worry, says Ingber — she’s been there, too.

Recently, Ingber sat down with TravelChannel.com to offer her tips on staying fit while on the road … or in the air. Ever wondered what you can eat (guilt-free) between flights at an airport? Or what exercises you can easily do in your hotel room? Read on for Ingber’s tips.

So maybe your last relationship went the way of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ … divorce. (Finally.) That doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a little spring fling of your own. In fact, you definitely deserve a spring fling — maybe to one of the world’s sexiest beaches. Or how about a getaway inspired by a family of expert jetsetters? Well, we’ve got you covered.

Drinking in the Dominican Republic
Last summer, the Kardashian clan took a memorable trip to the Dominican Republic — who can forget Kourtney’s hormonal mood swings or Kris’s Jet Ski joyride? Relive the happier moments of this luxurious vacation at Casa de Campo, the Kardashian clan’s resort of choice, with their gourmet meals, horseback riding on the beach and water sports at Minitas Beach … all minus the forced family bonding (and TV crews).

Playing Tourist in London
The Kardashian sisters let loose in London during a press tour last year, with Kim telling the press she’d love to have tea with Duchess Kate. That definitely didn’t happen, but Kim reportedly reached out to Kate with a note wishing her luck in her pregnancy. Again, no response. But there’s no shame in being a little obsessed with the Royal Family or in hitting up the touristy spots while in London. Take a ride on the London Eye, tour Windsor Castle or have high tea with your girlfriends (not including Kate). Maybe even do a little celeb spotting at one of these hotels known for accommodating the rich and famous.

Shopping in Paris
Kanye’s been shacking up in Paris to work on a new album, and the rumor is that Kim wants to give birth in the City of Lights. So during a recent visit, the couple did what they do best: they shopped. And what better place to go shopping than in the fashion capital of the world? Make the most of your splurge with these Paris shopping secrets. Nothing cures heartbreak like a little retail therapy.

Partying in Miami
Kourtney and Khloe are no strangers to Miami; they even had a whole series named for their adventures in this sultry city. While Kourtney stuck around the house with her baby, Khloe hit the social scene, particularly LIV at Fontainebleu, a complex of dance floors known for its high-energy nightlife, and The Plunge, a poolside bar on the roof of the Gansevoort Hotel. But you might need a Cuban coffee (Khloe’s obsessed!) to make it through the night – find one at El Pub in Little Havana or Cacique’s Corner in downtown Miami.

Bungalows in Bora Bora
Last April, Kris and Bruce brought the whole family to Bora Bora for their vow renewal. But a trip to celebrate a divorce or a breakup can be just as fun, if not more so, especially with a stay in an overwater bungalow. Imagine being surrounded by turquoise water on all sides with glass floors offering prime views of the diverse sea life. You should have no problem forgetting your ex on a trip like this.

The world can breathe a collective sigh of relief: A royal baby is on the way. Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, are expecting their first child after 19 months of marriage (and intense media scrutiny).

With today’s royal revelation, the world is abuzz with speculation: Will it be a future king or a future queen? What will the baby’s name and title be?

With the recent release of HBO’s The Girl and the current success of Hitchcock starring Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren and Scarlett Johansson, there has been renewed interest in one of the world’s most well-known (and somewhat creepy) movie directors.

Alfred Hitchcock fans — new and old — will be happy to know that many of the settings from his movies are still around and accessible.

I actually imagined myself as Melanie Daniels (played back in the day by Tippi Hedren) during a recent visit to Potter School House near the California coastal town of Bodega Bay. (Luckily, unlike Tippi, I was not attacked by a flock of crazed crows.) The school and the town featured prominently in The Birds. The school is now privately owned and closed to the public but is perfect for pictures. READ MORE

The days may be growing shorter, but one thing got longer this past month. Mustaches, and lots of them. Mustaches popped up all over the world in November — with some of the best sported by celebrities from Kris Jenner to David Beckham — for Mustache November. Known simply as Movember,  this annual movement calls on men worldwide to grow out their facial hair in solidarity against prostate cancer and other men’s health issues. What began in Australia as a campaign to raise awareness of these issues has now grown to become a worldwide cultural phenomenon.

On Sunday, Oct. 7, at 9|8c, Lifetime premieres a remake of the wildly-popular modern day classic Steel Magnolias. The 1989 film (originally a stage play) shows the roaring laughs and bawling tears of  6 “delicate as magnolias, but tough as steel” women in Louisiana.

The original ladies of the 1989 film were a star-studded cast — Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis and Shirley McClaine. The Lifetime remake brings together an equally heavy-hitting ensemble of great performers — Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad, Jill Scott, Alfre Woodard, Adepero Oduye and Condola Rashad.

In both the original film and the Lifetime remake, the seventh equally charming character is the South, with its small-town life, community and eccentricities that define this region so well.
