The Imperial Suite at Fairmont Dubai took on a beautiful hue of blush pink, and an absolutely stunning array of pink-themed desserts sat on the table infront of me.

However, this was no ordinary afternoon tea, but rather a celebration of the global solidarity in the fight against Breast Cancer.

In association with Friends of Cancer patients, local celebrity designer Arwa Bait-El-Mal who creates stunning modest-style silhouettes under the label Juri Fashion, dressed up 6 brave, beautiful women, all of whom are breast cancer survivors.

My favorite South African diner, The Meat Co, held a ‘Pink Truffle Making Class‘ last night at their Souk Al Bahar branch.

Hosted by the very lovely Chef Melanie Smith who holds the designation of Global Pastry Chef for the Food Fund International group of restaurants, the event was predominated by click-happy chocaholic bloggers who couldn’t wait to get their hands dirty and morph into truffle-making geniuses!
