I always seek inspiration so I ask people featured on the blog to answer questions on what inspires them.
Nina is featured in a post I made from A Girls-talk a Thursday Evening in Stavanger, I’d love for you to read the whole story here.
If you could ask one inspiring woman one question, who would it be and what would you ask? Brene Brown. She talks about how having courage to be vulnerable can transform us as well as encourage us to dare to take risks in love and life.
When are you curious? Curiosity drives me. I love exploring – it makes me happy discovering new trails to hike, ways to stay healthy, new recipes to make, cool places to eat and meeting new people and places.

Fresh ginger (thumb size)
Fresh turmeric (one piece).
Blend coconut water and spinach, add the other ingredients and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
