Travel Essentials - Fashion Bloggers Take Melbourne + GIVEAWAY

We've just come back from an amazing five day trip to Melbourne so for today's post we thought we would share our travel essentials. We took with us some pieces from the new Uniti stationery range 'Wanderlust' which is available at Warehouse Stationery now. All of their travel items would make great Christmas gifts and stocking fillers or just a cheeky present for yourself if you are going on a trip sometime soon.

Travel Documents

It may seem obvious but a passport is essential to travel overseas. Not only for the pretty instagram of your passport holder at the airport, but you'll probably also need it to get out of the country. Having a travel wallet to keep all your documents in also makes life easier as you don't have to go ferreting around in your bag to look for boarding passes or other bits.

Suitcase + Luggage Tag

A suitcase is up there on the essentials list, because where else are you going to put all your shopping? Even though our suitcases are bright pink the luggage tag was surprisingly helpful for picking out our suitcases on the baggage carousel. If you want to see whats in our suitcase check out our video here.


We ended up taking four different camera's if you include our phones. You might not need that many, but having some way to capture your trip in photo form is something we consider essential. We ended up using our vlog camera the most, and you can check out our daily Melbourne vlogs on our youtube channel here. Having your phone is also super handy for getting quick shots on the go (you can see Tara demo-ing her best instagram squat above). 

Travel Diary

Recording your trip in a travel diary is a fun way to remember your adventure. We still have some of our grandparents travel diaries, they're a cool thing to look back on for years to come. This particular book comes with stickers, photo mounts and other bits to make it easy-least to look great.

Comfy Walking Shoes

We did a lot of walking around Melbourne and walking places is a great way to see new cities when travelling. Bringing a pair of shoes you know will still be comfy after a day of walking is important to keep your feet happy!

Reading Material/Activities

Depending on where you're going you could have quite a bit of time sitting on the plane. Our flight to Melbourne was about four hours so we bought books, magazines and an adult colouring book to pass some time. It's quite a nice way to gets some off-screen time too.


For our trip we bought some cash as well as cash passports to pay for all the delicious food and shopping. Let us know in the comments below if you would like to see a haul video of the things we bought!

Thankyou Cards

We stayed with our cousin in Melbourne so another thing that was important to us was saying thank you. We got her some pretty flowers and used a card from the Wanderlust collection to write a little note about how much we appreciated it. This set is a super cute way to say thanks to the people that help you in your travels.

We also have a $50 Warehouse Stationery voucher to giveaway to a lucky reader so you can get some cool bits for your summer travels! Enter below to be in for a chance to win :)
