Hotel Tour - Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi

jumeirah etihad tower, abu dhabi, travel, best hotels in abu dhabi, So I've decided that every time I set foot in a hotel that is remarkable, I will blog about it! The most recent of such hotels was Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi. We had a bank holiday in Dubai and my friend and I really wanted a mini break so we found a nice deal for the hotel on and decided to drive down for an overnight luxurious treat.

Our friends had stayed there previously and gave really good feedback so we were keen to try the hotel out, and here are the top three things I loved about it, in order of priority.

Casual outfit, denim on denim, fashion blog Skinny jeans, topshop jeans, acid wash
One of the things I love most about living in the UAE is the amount of public holidays we get. Last week, we got another one so my friend and I decided to head down to Abu Dhabi for a spa weekend at Jumeirah Etihad Towers. This was my getaway outfit - denim on denim, with my most comfortable pair of heels yet - (watch me sashay in motion in the video below)

An INCREDIBLE New Year's Eve in Dubai!

My entry into 2014 was quite possibly the best new year's eve I have ever had! Since it was my first in Dubai, my friends and I decided to hire a yacht for the night and sail around the Burj al Arab and the Palm to watch Dubai's attempt at breaking the world record for fireworks.

IMG_7585 We started off waiting for ages for our party of about 30 people to get to the yacht, traffic in Dubai on New Year's eve and New Year's day is usually crazy, plus, the Sandance Festival was being held on the same day so taxis were incredibly hard to come by!

Tip: If you are in Dubai for NYE and need to get anywhere, I would recommend hiring a car if you can. Life will be so much easier, trust me! Or you can just get a boat ;-) IMG_7583 IMG_7649 IMG_7585 Finally we were on the move, it felt like being at uni again because we were having a crazy party on the boat with these sort of shenanigans! Name the movie? IMG_7637 I love how beautiful Dubai looks at night especially at sea… IMG_7651 IMG_7657 How INCREDIBLE does the Atlantis Hotel look? I'm so proud of this shot! IMG_7668 IMG_7665 And then the fireworks started… first was the Burj Khalifa IMG_7721 Then the Burj al Arab which looked spectacular as we were so close! At this point my camera died but my iPhone did a fabulous job with the picture below! d60229fc728611e391e212b3df39af67_8

We could not have made a better choice on how to spend NYE… it ended up being AMAZING! I will be editing a video of the fireworks display shortly, but for now I need to get dressed for a wedding!

I hope you all had a great NYE too! x
