Wherever you are in the world, there is always a new destination on the horizon and if that is in a warm location then you our vacation gift guide will give you inspiration for the essentials you need to take along with you on your next trip.
Over the last few weeks you will have seen that founders Becky van Dijk and Vanessa Rivers hosted two retreats in Bali taking a group of women around the lush tropical island and teaching them everything they need to know about blogging, social media and branding in a series of boutique blogger workshops. Whilst the retreat proved to be an incredible place to connect with likeminded women and explore together, our guests were also super excited for the retreat gift bags!
We want to extend a huge thank you to the brands that partnered with us for the launch of our first Travel Girls Getaways in Bali and introduce you to them so that you can add these items to your own vacation wish lists!
Thank you to the following partners for their generous gifts!
POM POM BEACH BAG FROM COCOBELLE
Every vacation needs a great beach bag, and one that is not only practical but stylish. Step in Cocobelle, with their range of accessories and bags that will complement any travel outfit. Our favourite item from the collection is the pom pom beach bags in blue / grey and red that are made right here in Bali!
SANDALS FROM VERAO
We simply adore the selection of stylish leather sandals from Verao and want to pack every pair into our luggage! Hand made in Columbia with love, attention to detail and the consideration of how much wandering us travel girls do, these comfy and stylish shoes are a must-have for any vacation.
POOL FLOATS FROM SUNNYLIFE
Sunnylife pool floats really need no introduction! We were lucky enough to be able to fill our retreat villa pool with a flamingo, peacock, swan and the cute gala providing the source of many fun days hanging out on the retreat. So when booking your next flight, make sure to request extra baggage so you can fill a second suitcase with these colourful birds!
ECO BIKINIS FROM SUMMERLOVE SWIMWEAR
Designed by We Are Travel Girls Founder Vanessa Rivers, Summerlove are luxe eco friendly bikinis produced in California and made from recycled fishing nets that have been reclaimed from the ocean. Each girl on our retreat received a gorgeous gold bikini to team with her beach wear, which looked beautiful for our days by the pool, at waterfalls and at the beach!
KINI WRAP FROM KENNY FLOWERS
Kenny started his company as he was always wearing his Dad’s same Hawaiian shirt and his friends would ask why he didn’t wear another one… because he couldn’t find a great stylish Hawaiian shirt so he made his own! His shirt line has now been extended so that us girls can get involved too, the cute women’s kini wraps which are a perfect complement to your bikini look!
BIKINI BAGS FROM SEA & SUN BALI
Are you an Island Gangsta, or thinking Take Me To Bali or simply wanting to live the Beach Life..? well then you need a cute slogan bikini bag from Sea and Sun Bali. With a huge collection of designs, I promise you will want to buy more than one!
