Palm Court Afternoon Tea @ Jumeirah Beach Hotel with Isme Elite

As much as I love reviewing food as part of an invitation (i.e free), I will have to admit that you can only truly experience the real deal when you head over as a paying guest. It’s quite upsetting when it’s from a brand close to heart. I sat on the fence on this one […]

Breakfast and a 40AED coffee @ Al Mandhar Lounge, Jumeirah Al Naseem

Ever since Jumeirah Al Naseem opened its doors to the public in December, I’ve always wanted to go check it out ….. and as I do, I waited to see if there would be any deals. They never joined the Entertainer (will they?), and I couldn’t wait anymore (wanted to take mum there) – so […]

Our weekend away @ Al Qasr with a baby

First “holiday” away from our apartment last weekend. Social media has been driving me a little nuts lately with photos of everyone on their summer holiday (insert sulk face) . So after a lot of research on the newly launched Isme Elite app, we decided that it was pretty worth it, went ahead – bought it, […]
