OUTFIT: the birthday brunch

The possibilities for a great breakfast in Vienna are almost endless. There are new places popping up all the time and one of our favorite things to do on weekends, is to go out for a long and lazy brunch with friends – which is exactly what I did to celebrate my birthday this year. Obviously a comfy outfit was in order, with a blouse that left enough room for multiple rounds of mimosas and food. And since I was still in an Abu Dhabi mindset, I choose to make use of the amazing weather (yay for 13°C in Feburary) and wore my Chanel espadrilles straight off the plane.

TRAVELS: Saadiyat Beach Club, Abu Dhabi

On most days of our trip to Abu Dhabi we had quite the agenda. Lots of outdoor activities, restaurants and sights to see. However, one day we decided to pay the Saadiyat Beach Club a visit, and it was seriously so worth it! Before visiting Abu Dhabi, I thought it was all desert, cooled down shopping malls and highrises. Who knew there was turquoise water, white sandy beaches and amazing beach clubs? We had lunch at the beach club and then decided to spend the rest of the afternoon at the beach for a lazy day in the sun. If you happen to be in Abu Dhabi, definitely pay this place a visit – you’ll love it, guaranteed!

HOTEL REVIEW: Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi

For the first part of our stay in Abu Dhabi, we decided on the Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, which is located across the canal from the stunning Sheikh Zayed Mosque. The second I saw the view on the hotel photos, I was sold. Plus, the entire hotel is styled in Arabic decor, which is something I wanted. Usually I prefer more modern interios, however, for Abu Dhabi, I thought the more traditional look was perfect. Greeted by dates and coffee, we immediately loved the place. Even more when we entered our room (we booked a deluxe room) and saw the private balcony and canal view – of course with the mosque in the background.

the birthday brunch

Even though I wanted to celebrate my birthday somewhere warm this year, of course I also wanted to celebrate with my friends. First thing we did when I was back in town, was a super lazy birthday brunch. Lots of friends, presents, some bubbly, good food and laughter made the day extra special, and I am so thankful for having all these wonderful people in my life! I think I’ll make a birthday brunch a tradition from now on.
