Dressed by Lucy

Hey everybody!

So I am here to share with you our first 'OOTD' post from our recent trip to Dubai.. Which was literally amazing!
If you have never been I would definitely recommend it. You don't need to spend a ton of money to have a good time.. There is so much to see and do just walking around. Checking out all the skyscrapers for one, just blows ya socks off! HOW TALL?

We were in Dubai for 11/12 days and we stayed with our sister who has lived there for almost 2 years. She lives on the most well known road in Dubai so she literally has everything right on her doorstep. I can honestly say I'm pretty sure I'd be obese if I lived here. With every possible fast food restaurant you could ever want just.. right THERE! My tastebuds are throbbing just thinking about it.

So this day we decided to go for afternoon tea (shock, a food activity) as we all hadn't been in forever. We booked in at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel and we most certainly we not disappointed. The lovely waitress showed us the menu and went through the many tea options that were available. Each teapot rested on top of a small candle holder which kept the tea warm, it was the most brilliant thing I'd ever seen and left me wondering where I could purchase one for at home use. 
Then came our food which was absolutely incredible! Firstly there was a selection of finger sandwiches and desserts, then came some mini quiches, then scones with jam and cream, then finally a slice of cake. I'm pretty sure we all were dying of a food coma.. The food just kept coming!

I have been to a fair few afternoon tea in my time but I can honestly say it was the best one I have ever had the pleasure of eating/drinking! I'm sure there will be a return visit the next time we are in Dubai. Please let us know your favourite place to have afternoon tea.. we are always on the lookout for a new location!
