The Parlour at Fortnum & Mason Dubai

I’m always looking for the best cup of coffee in Dubai, and you know how much I love a beautifully set-up coffee shot. We all have our favorite places to eat or meet up with friends, but I’ve been making it a point to visit some place new any chance I get. I think the atmosphere of a restaurant or cafe can really put you in a good mood and brighten up your day.

If you’re living in Dubai or just here for a visit Fortnum & Mason Dubai is a must try. Whether you’re planning an afternoon with your girlfriends or want to take your little ones out for a treat, you can choose between the elegant Tea Salon and the playful Ice Cream Parlour.

The Parlour is a beautifully decorated candy land with the feel of a 1950’s diner. They have a variety of ice cream flavors with an assortment of all your dream toppings. You can also just enjoy a rich cappuccino that is the right balance of creamy milk and nutty coffee. It’s a very family-friendly spot, and although perfect for that insatiable sweet tooth they also serve a scrumptious savory breakfast.

I wanted my outfit to match the ambience at The Parlour, and so I thought some pink and red color-blocking would express that cute retro vibe I feel when I’m there. I hope you enjoyed this feature and are planning on checking out Fortnum & Mason for yourself.

I love trying on new polishes, especially creamy pastel shades. During the summertime I feel adventurous and I’m willing to try bright neons and funky nail art. At the moment I am obsessed with Essie’s Go Ginza.

I got to enjoy a lovely high tea date with a friend at Fortnum & Mason which included some fun girl talk and an inspiring exchange of ideas. Ladies, high tea is the new brunch and you really need to try it out.

I’ve been coveting a retro swimsuit for over a year now, and I finally found this one at Topshop that won me over immediately.
