Rewind to the start of the year; I decided to start 2016 how I intend to finish it: on a HIGH! Where else would I rather be than in Dubai! (the rhyming is not intentional lol) This trip made my third time of having the pleasure to vacay in Dubai. After three trips I can say that I am nowhere near done with the DXB! there’s still so much to do, see and experience! What I can say is that; I fall more and more in love with Dubai each time I go back and it’s one of my favourite destinations in the world! #FACTS Check out how and why I like to relax in Dubai in pictures below…

It’s views like this that has me coming back each time! The perfect balance of palm trees and sky scrapers, best of both worlds, makes a great backdrop for whatever type of mood your in!

This time around I had the pleasure of staying at the Ghaya Grand Hotel a new hotel in the Jumeirah Golf Residence. Slightly further out from the main attractions but perfect if you want some privacy and to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Dubai. I was invited to stay in the Ambassador Suite, which had me feeling everything like The Ambassador of Luxury! Lol! Loved it!

When it’s not uncomfortably hot, Dubai’s weather can be so pleasant! I love to put together really practical free flowing outfits, without showing too much of course!

It’s been almost a year now since I’ve given up meat and chicken (Yay me!) I can really go crazy in Dubai as they cater to all types of foodies! Check out my vegetarian breakfast! Does it get any healthier than this?!

Funmi Ogunja Safari

The Dessert! One of the most stunning places I’ve ever been and seen! A safari desert tour is a must in Dubai! A bumpy long ride to get to, but worth it when you finally get there and get to take in the views, the air and the dunes!

I can’t do Dubai with spending a night or two at The Address! Even with the news of one going up in flames recently… they have one of the best pools and strawberry Daiquiri’s in the world! I just had to!

Watching the day go by at Shades at The Address is pretty Epic!

I’m that annoying person that orders the same thing all the time if I really love it lol! I can not get over the Shrimps and Rosa Fries at The Address! Infact I refuse to lol


This is actually from another trip to Dubai but I thought I’d sneak it in here as I got a lot of questions on my Instagram (@OGFunmi) asking where the playsuit was from : BooHoo.com baby!

Funmi Ogunja Beach

But the beach always comes through for me! Especially on the food side! Seafood Pizza and a creamy chilled Pina Colada from 0Gravity!

Then watch the sun go down… pure bliss!

The Address Spa

You gotta hit up the spa too! I had my long awaited and well deserving aromatherapy experience at The Spa At The Address. It does not get any more relaxing than this! My full body massage was awesome to say the least and the opportunity to completely switch off and sleep after was amazzzingg!

I’ve made up my mind! I want permanent henna so bad! Seriously, just like this! Pretty good for a free style!


Essentials! Tom Ford, Thierry Mugler and Dior Vibes!
