A Lavish Turkish Breakfast @ Huqqa, Dubai Mall

Back to Huqqa in Dubai Mall with the family last weekend to review what they had to offer for breakfast. We normally don’t do breakfast with the entire troupe as it’s just too much effort and time to get everyone ready on a Friday morning. But hey – if it’s at somewhere nice, with views […]

La Belle Vie Brunch @ Bleu Blanc, Renaissance Hotel Dubai

Kid-free. They should have used that as their promo-tag. I had to check with Bleu Blanc as it was not mentioned anywhere on their website or social media platforms that this was a kid-free brunch. Imagine how excited I was – a chance to leave the little people at home, get dressed up and go […]
