turning 28

Birthday dinner with dearest friends at one of our haunts – Hard Rock Oslo.

Foooooooood! (Greeeeease… LOL)

A lovely hamper of L’Occitane bath products. Weee! I can now make mountains and mountains of foam and bubbles in my bathroom. Haha! Thanks V and Boo!

A surprise flower delivery from Louis Vuitton – a lovely bouquet of amaryllis. Thanks T and S!

My gifts from Knut. Pushwagner’s Soft City. Weee! \o/ A bedside organizer. And how cute is that card with cops and robbers and giant maki rolls? Haha!

Coming home to cakes and tea.

Thank you very much for all your birthday greetings!

28’ll be a good year for me. :)


tonight, we break the ice

It’s that time of the year when companies in Norway book the best available tables for Christmas dinners. This year, I’ve organized a Christmas dinner (in Norwegian julebord, literally Christmas table) for our department of seven. Instead of going straight to dinner, I’ve arranged for some pre-dinner tapas, drinks and ice-sculpting activity at Oslo’s newest and coolest bar concept. We’re going to Icebar Oslo by Icehotel!

The largest and third Icebar by Icehotel in the world (the other two are in Copenhagen and Tokyo), the bar is made from scratch with 60 tons of ice from the Torne River in Lapland, Sweden. The walls, the furniture and even glasses and plates are all made from the same ice. Kept at a -5° temperature all-year round, the ice will not melt thanks to energy efficient LED lighting. The lighting is in several shades of blue and green reminiscent of the elusive and magical northern lights. The design of the Icebar changes every year, and this year’s theme is “Purity with a twist.”

Afterwards, we are having a three-course menu dinner at Restaurant Eik, I believe one of Oslo’s best and trendiest restaurants. Recommended in the Michelin Guide under the Bib Gourmand category, Restaurant Eik serves a medley of dishes created from the freshest ingredients of the season.

Hmmm, this will be good.
