“Think of where you most want to go and blow a lot of money on it,” she told Us when she stopped by to discuss her Real Relief for Visionary Women grant program with Systane. “Even if it’s a weekend, just go and do it. The one thing the world can’t take away from you is a phenomenal memory of where you were, and how much laughing you got done when you were there, away from your homefront. Travel: best money spent. You keep it forever. It makes a difference in who you are. That’s it!”
