In recent years, the Faroe Islands has turned into a real foodie destination. Koks received two Michelin stars in 2019 and is no doubt attracting its fair share of foodie tourists, but there is also a good selection of really nice restaurants in Tórshavn, especially in the old part of the city. I have previously dined at Áarstova and Barbara, and the other day it was time to try Katrina Christiansen.
Fresh flowers are one of those little luxuries that really brightens the day, and a beautiful bouquet can work wonders for a room. My knowledge about flowers is very limited, but I’ve been curious to learn more, so I got in touch with Lone from Gardenia in Fredericia and we agreed that I could come by for a talk.
On Svínoy, it feels like time is standing still, and you have every opportunity to relax and recharge. Though it usually takes me a couple of days before I am able to fully wind down. When you’re used to the constant buzzing background noise of a big city, complete silence can actually feel slightly intimidating. When I wake up here in the Faroe Islands, I something wonder if I have turned deaf, because it is so quiet.
Hello Faroe Islands! I had been warned about the weather on the islands these days, but it turned out not to be that bad at all. 5°C and sunshine! After Faroese standards, that’s almost summer! I am spending the first night in Tórshavn with Poul’s brother and Joan before taking the helicopter to Svínoy tomorrow. Poul’s mom lives on Svínoy, and Poul has been out there for a week. He has 4 weeks of vacation and most of the time, he will be in the Faroe Islands.
Summer is just around the corner and maybe it is time to update your sunglasses wardrobe? My friend Angela has moved to Hong Kong, but she was back for Art Dubai, so I met with her for lunch and a talk about this year’s sunglasses trends. Angela is among my most fashion-savvy friends, so who would be better for modeling the sunglasses I have borrowed for this shoot? Here are some of the styles you can expect to see this summer:
When we moved to Dubai many years ago, JLT was mostly known for the strange orbital road and for being on the wrong side of Sheikh Zayed Road. Though a lot of things have happened since then, and today, JLT is one of the hottest neighborhoods for foodies looking for cheap and tasty meals in Dubai.

Have you seen my new wood watch from JORD? A nice watch can really make an outfit and the dark ebony gives this watch a sleek, urban look, which is a cool contrast to the natural material. This watch is the Frankie Ebony & Gold, which I think is actually a men’s watch, but I like big watches that stand out, and the Frankie watch from JORD definitely does.
Before I traveled back to Denmark, I was back at Roast again, this time with Nicola and J. After J moved to the Marina, we see each other all the time as she’s in the building right next to ours. Though it’s been more than a year since the last time I saw Nicola, so we had a lot to catch up on.
