I love flowers and I love white. I’m also a big lace lover, which is probably why I’m obsessed with this beautiful Self Portrait dress. It’s so romantic and fresh and it makes me want to run around in a garden full of flowers.
We are having the best time of our lives here in Cape Town and I’m so grateful and happy to be able to experience this amazing city. We’ve spent one night at this beautiful hotel called “The Robertson Small Hotel”, which is located about 3 hours outside of Cape Town. This hotel is one of the best hotels I’ve ever been to. I seriously did not want to leave. The rooms are beautiful and the staffs are people you don’t want to say goodbye too. Oh, and let me tell you about the food. The restaurant is run by one of South Africa’s most admired chefs, Reuben Riffel. He is South Africa’s Gordon Ramsey and boy that man can cook. We had breakfast and dinner and the breakfast was by far the best Hotel breakfast I’ve ever had and the dinner was just exceptional.
As you can see, I’m having a fantastic time here. And on top of that I even got a facial at their Spa this morning before we checked out. Sometimes you need to treat yourself right? ☺
Now we are back in Cape Town for two nights before we get back to reality.
If you are into cars you should definitely visit Cuba. The whole country is like a big car museum. Everywhere you look, you see these beautiful old Chevrolet, Ford and Chryslers in different colors. Most of the cars are over 50 years old and it’s impressive how they still keep them running. Spare parts are hard to find and that is why Cubans use whatever materials they find to get their cars fixed. They don’t through anything away. If they don’t have the part they need, they ask a friend or a neighbor and if they can’t find exactly what they are looking for, they improvise to get the cars fixed. Isn’t that super cool! That’s what I call a great mechanic.
On this rainy day, I was wearing
River Island Top
My parents are visiting, so I’m busy spending as much time with them as possible. I was showing them the Mall of the Emirates, which is the mall with the indoor ski slope. There I found these fuzzy beauties that you can find here. Love the navy color in velvet. What a catch, right!?
Before starting to read this text you should put on Will Smith’s “Miami” to get in the right mood.
So, before telling you more about Cuba, let me tell you a little bit about our Miami trip. We were in Miami for a few days. It was our first time there and we stayed at a hotel called SLS Hotel South Beach. The hotel is stylish, lively and fun with its pool parties and good restaurants and it’s also perfectly located on South Beach with walking distance to the shopping streets, and the beach. As we live by the beach here in Dubai, we didn’t bother spending a day at the beach sun tanning. Instead, we rented bikes and biked down Ocean Drive. Then we strolled around and admired the architecture at the Art Deco district. The weather was great and the sky was gorgeously blue which made it easy to spend the whole day outdoors.
Then the nightlife. Oh man, I understand why Miami is one of the world’s top party destinations. The parties never stop. The town is filled with bars and nightspots and it’s not hard to find a great club to go to. One of my best tips is to go to the club LIV. You wont be disappointed and you might even spot a celebrity or two.
Miami has also a lot of great restaurants and one of our absolute favorite one is Bazi. It’s an Asian-fusion restaurant that opened recently. The chef and owner Michael Pirolo is from Italy and that comes across in a lot of the dishes. I have told you about one of my favorite restaurant, Zuma and I can tell you that the food at Bazi is just as good, and sometimes even better.
