How to Travel in Style with Violet

I’ve done quite a bit of traveling in my time and I love exploring new and interesting places but I always try to travel in style.

I try to make my everyday life as beautiful as possible and traveling is no different. You won’t find me in sweat pants and thongs (or flip flops for my American readers), I want to feel as pretty leaving a 7 hour flight as I do going out to dinner!

So with my recent trip to Singapore I thought it was the perfect time to show you all how I travel in style. This is a compilation of tips I’ve picked up on my travels and my “must have” items for along the way.

First thing’s first…

Take something lucky

I’m not a superstitious person by nature but there’s a story behind this one! The day before we went to Singapore James and I were doing some last minute shopping in the city. I was feeling a little light headed so we stopped at McDonalds for some fries. As I was walking away I checked my change and what should be there but a Singaporean 10 cent piece!!


I was so surprised, normally if I get anything foreign in my change it’s New Zealand currency. This seemed so random and fateful that I kept it in a special compartment in my bag the whole trip!


It’s princess video time ^_^

So remember when I said that I’d have a surprise when I reached 100 followers? Well today I reached 109! How exciting! My surprise is I’m going to start video blogging πŸ˜€

Because I’m still working on some real videos I thought I’d share with you a video of the fun Candice aka Super Kawaii Mama had while we were over in Singapore. This is why I was holding back the photos of us over the weekend. It’s so funny when you meet someone for the first time and feel like you’ve known them for years, I couldn’t have asked for better traveling buddies ^_^

So enjoy and let me know what you want to see in my future videos πŸ˜‰

Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed the silly princess video!

Just blogging about Sinagpore again la!

A warning that there are a lot of photos in this Singapore post so be prepared πŸ˜€

If these photos just aren’t enough, I’ve uploaded a large selection of everything we took over at my Flickr account. Hey it’s not everyday that someone flies you to Singapore for free so I took a lot of photos!

So starting on Thursday night, our flight was at like 11:45pm so James’ Dad drove us to the airport and we chatted before going through security and customs and doing a little shopping. We were keeping an eye out for Erica from Girl With a Satchel who was the only other blogger coming from Brisbane. We travel in style baby!


This is a kind of silly inside joke but ever since we started going out like 2 and 1/2 years ago James has been promising to buy me a mood ring and he finally did! Hahaha guess what I’m feeling!

The Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards

Hey everyone, I’ve recovered a little bit now so I wanted to show you what I got up to on the night of the Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards!

I’m going to do another post tomorrow with all of the other days, this is just about the awards night it’s self. I had the time of my life and it was so wonderful meeting everyone in person!

So on to what you’ve all been waiting for…

That night we gave ourselves 2 hours to get ready. I didn’t want to rush at all I just wanted to chill out and enjoy myself.


Everything went really smoothly. My theme for the night was flowers and the jewelery that Celeste from Little Waltz made for me suited everything beautifully! I’m going to do a blow by blow of the whole outfit in another post because other than the jewelery I made everything myself!

How to Indulge in the Uniquely Singapore Experience

Hey everyone! This is the second part of my Nuffnang Blog Awards competition entry. This one is all about Singapore!

So why do I deserve to go to Singapore? Well I don’t know if I deserve to go above all of the other entries as there have been some really awesome ones but I would really like to go! I’d love to actually get out of the house and meet some fellow bloggers in person for a change ^_^ The most important reason I would like to go is experiencing another culture! Singapore is completely different to Australia and I’d love to be able to meet new and interesting people.

The second part of this post is all about my perfect day in Singapore!

When you’re traveling you should always take comfortable shoes with you as you never know how much walking (or shopping!) you’re going to have to do. I find it really difficult to find comfortable shoes that are also really cute πŸ™

So I made my own! I bought a cheap set of white runners from Big W for $25 and added glitter, pearls, diamantes and bows πŸ˜€

I’m always doing photo posts on my blog so I thought I’d do something a little different this time so you can see things from the perspective of my new shoes ^_^

I like to look nice as much of the time as possible. So even when I’m flying I wear nice comfortable clothes. On my day in Singapore I’ll arrive at the airport looking cute as ever πŸ˜‰
