CELEBRATING THANKS GIVING AT TRAITEUR


Traiteur is my favourite place to have brunch in Dubai, proving that it's not about quantity and more about quality fresh produce and ingredients.  My friends and I really indulged in their decadent offering, from lobster to oysters, spit-roasted big and foie gras creme brulee - not to mention copious amounts of champers.

ABU DHABI FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX 2014






The Formula1 is one of the most exciting events on the Emirates social-calendar, hosted at the extraordinary Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, we buddied up and hopped on board a friend’s Yacht to watch Lewis win the championship in style.

SUMMER OF 1979

This weekend I was thrown back to a retro revival on wheels, where I had the pleasure of being co-pilot in a newly refurbished Mercedes 450 SLC classic from 1979.





I’m sporting the very recognizable Prada shades (yawn) doesn’t everyone have these now? Note to self:  add new shades to the Christmas list.  Regardless, big glasses are an absolute necessity for a car of this era so you can dawn your Natalie Wood look as best as possible. Keeping it light, simple (and sweat free) I wore a day dress from Koton, which was black lace cutout, layered over a nylon slip.

Breakfast Served at La Serre

EAT


Firstly, let me set the scene: it's Saturday morning, the girls are out for breakfast, we're catching up and  celebrating a birthday at La Serre in The Vida hotel, Downtown. I love this restaurant and was eager to try their breakfast so became the venue of choice to celebrate Miss Riley's birthday over coffee, cake and carbs.
