Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah

2015-04-29 03.30.57We can get a little absorbed by our daily routines and responsibilities that we don’t take the time to make any special plans outside our usual outings. My birthday last month was the perfect excuse for a short getaway with my hubby, and The Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah turned out to be spellbinding. The weather in RAK is cooler and the air is cleaner, and the resort itself was picturesque. 
LobbyThe Waldorf Astoria is a worldwide chain, with signature design elements found in all their branches. You’ll notice unique differences that reflect the culture and character of each location. This particular resort has a peacock theme, as well as coral and sand undertones which mirror the most beautiful aspect of the UAE:  it’s beaches.

The Waldorf Astoria RAK

The rooms are bright, airy and incredibly spacious with a walk-in-closet (yes, seriously.) and an incredible view. We had a lovely in-room treatment called the Bath Master Experience which was a relaxing bubble bath accompanied by chocolates and pretty rose petals.
To sum it all up: we enjoyed delicious food, topnotch customer service and an unforgettable escape from the city. Browse the gallery below for more photos.

Getaway

My birthday is in a couple of days and so my honey and I decided to take a short getaway on the beach. As I plan our little trip and pack my things, I thought I’d share some getaway must haves with you all. From fun and bright tassel bracelets to comfy statement wedges, these pieces combine comfort and chic all at once. I’ll be sharing all the details of our staycation on instagram so make sure you follow along! Xo

The right accessory can make any outfit pop and hats are really in this summer. I love a wide straw hat during the day or for the beach, while a wool floppy hat is a glamorous addition to any look. Adding a small straw hat to shorts and a tee can give a sexy yet effortless beach vibe. Check out my favorite hats for summer below.
