Weekend Getaway + Travel Beauty Bag Essentials

So for the weekend my boyfriend & I decided to go about an hour out of Melbourne city to a Hotel & Spa. I decided to show you guys a bit of the weekend & the products I brought with me.

As it is Winter here in Australia I had to pass on the beach which would normally be my go to getaway location, instead we decided to head to Werribee & stayed at Mansion Hotel & Spa.

I loved it because I’ve never really stayed in a hotel like this before. I do travel a lot but when I do it’s usually hotels in a city or resorts by a beach, this hotel had basically no other building around it. There is the Werribee Open Range Zoo across which was pretty amazing because we got to see giraffe roaming around when we drive in.

Werribee Mansion was completed by wealthy pastoralists, the Chirnside family in 1877. Built in the Italianate architecture style, Werribee Mansion boasts 60 rooms in several wings. Following extensive restoration, many of the Chirnside family’s items, including clothing, furniture remain on display. (http://www.werribeepark.com.au/)

So yeah basically on our first day we got there at around 4ish so we didn’t do much besides walk around a bit. The second day we were lucky with incredible weather as you can see in the pictures! We also had a spa appointment later in the afternoon at around 5 I decided to get a facial as my skins been extra dry recently & it was amazing. There was an indoor pool & steam room as well which is perfect when it’s below 13 degrees outside. & then our final day we had to check out at 11 so we got breakfast in bed which was lovely.
