Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)
April 16, 2014


Right now we have spring break from school and I’m busier than ever. But this time it’s a good busy. Because I’m spending the week off in the company of 30 other amazing people at my age training for a big musical which will go on the air this Sunday and which we will be performing every night the following week. So I’m practically singing and dancing my way through the week. I couldn’t think of a better way of spending the break!

We’ve been truing since September and I can’t wait to show it. Right now we train every day from 10 to 10, so this is a serious business ;)

Unfortunately it leaves me with very little time for doing other things – such as blogging and cooking (I do get a very little time for running – I just go for a small run some of the mornings, but hey, I’m dancing the entire day).


DSC_0013But then dear Melissa from Nourish by Melissa nominated me for a Liebster Award. Wonderful! This meant I had an excuse for blogging without having a recipe to share ;) Haha… Thank you so so so much sweetie!

Btw – go check out Melissa’s blog. It’s great. She has so many wonderful recipes.

I really like the Liebster Award. I think it’s a wonderful way of getting connected to and find new blogs.



  1. You must link back to the person who nominated you
  2. You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you.
  3. You must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award (with a small following)
  4. You must create 10 questions for your nominees
  5. You must go to their blogs and notifiy the nominees


Here we go… 


1. What was your first ever post about?
Oh God. I wrote that one such a long time ago and I’ve changed so much since… Anyway – it was actually a tutorial on felted bells. Then came the first recipe on rice porridge ;) I looove that stuff.
2. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? Why?
This one’s hard – I love traveling and I have so many placed I’d like to go. Well, I’d probably say Iceland. I really want to go there. Right now it would be wonderful hiking in the beautiful Icelandic landscape far away from the everyday life.
3. What do you do to take a break when you are stressed out?
When I’m stressed I absolutely love going for a short run and then cuddle up on the couch with a blanket, a good book and a huge cup of tea.
4. What is your all time favorite food?
God… this is tricky. I can’t choose between these three: strawberries, chocolate, yoghurt.
5. What is one habit you have that you wish you didn’t?
I snack too much. Well, I like eating a little all the time instead of three big meals each day, but sometimes I snack so much I don’t have any appetite for dinner… And that’s too much.
6. Where/when is your favourite place/time to blog?
In the morning. On the couch. With a big bowl of yoghurt. And a mug of tea. Unfortunately that happens rarely because of school :(
7. What aspect of your blog are you most proud of?
I’m actually quite proud of the development of my photography. I do absolutely not think my photography is perfect, but I love the fact that you can see a big difference in the photos I make now and those I shot a year ago
8. Juices or smoothies? Why?
SMOOTHIES! Duh, “The Smoothie Lover”. Haha. Uhm, I think I like those better because they are more filling.
9. Are you a morning person or a night person? Favourite meal of the day?
Definitely a morning person. I love mornings and therefore my favorite meal of the day is breakfast. I could eat breakfast all day long.
10. Lastly, why did you start blogging?
This sounds strange, but I actually don’t really remember. I think I wanted a place to write things down. Also it helped med discover myself and my love of cooking.
I nominate:


My questions for the nominees:

  • Ok, this one’s the same as one I answered, but I really liked it: Why did you start blogging?
  • What is your favourite post of all those you’ve written?
  • Snacks: Sweet or Salty?
  • Do you have a “blogger-idol”? Who?
  • What kinds of sports do you do?
  • Favourite breakfast?
  • Which camera do you use?
  • What is your dream travel destination?
  • Which language, which you do not already master, would you like to be able to speak?
  • Do you have pets? If no – would you like some?

Please note: If you don’t have time or simply think Liebster Award is a silly thing, feel free to  skip this.
