To start off.. this is a very short but sweet (pun intended) post! No as picture heavy as usual!
Having a birthday on holiday is kind of a really lovely thing. There isn't much fuss, you can lie on the beach all day... and like us, have a real treat for dinner!
But before we could even think about dinner, I woke up to a knock at the door. To my delight, I was greeted by this beautiful birthday cake and OHH MY it was absolutely delicious! A real treat to wake up to. Which was obviously followed by a more usual breakfast...
After a long day on the beach as planned, we started to think about dinner at UMI. We first went to Umi on our honeymoon and fell so in love with how amazing the food was. I can't even put it to words how good it is, but... if you are ever in the UAE you really must try it! When we booked this holiday back in January I knew this would be my restaurant of choice for my birthday dinner!
I went for my all time favourite holiday colour... white! With this gorgeous crochet shirt dress from LILY & CARTER, paired with my RUSSELL AND BROMLEY wedges and all time favourite clutch by SOPHIE FLEMING (all links below!) Also, keep your eyes peeled for my full birthday look, coming to the blog Monday!
The restaurant itself is super sleek and minimal. Everything is black, shiny and oozing sophistication.
After a whole load of sushi and a couple of cocktails on the side... we were well and truly full to the top! An amazing dinner at one of my favourite restaurants. I'm hoping we can squeeze in another visit before this trip is over!
