End of summer wish-list

End of summer wishlist-Mangomini

I love making lists, especially “action plans” and wish-lists. As an illustrator, I live on a small budget. I find that making a wish-list every season helps me make better shopping decisions. I hardly ever buy anything on impulse. This is my end-of-summer-wish-list.

Two of the items on my list I found on Etsy. The vintage leather tote and the fox phone case. You can also buy my prints there, just go to my shop.

The Dutch “summer”

"Lucky dress" Mangomini

I’m trying to fight off a cold by drinking lots of fresh mint and ginger tea with honey. Also, I’m eating a lot of chocolate, because that always helps as well ;) I’m wearing my first ever Primark item (I’m not proud). I had to layer it with warm tights and a big cardigan, to stay warm enough for the Dutch summer weather. The best news is that I managed to get tickets to see Ben Howard in November, YAY!!

 

Flea market & weekend fun

Flea market and weekend fun - Mangomini

My weekend started on Friday with a day of flea market shopping in Liège. Saturday was spend reading and later mojito-drinking (yummy!) with friends. On Sunday I went to see the new Woody Allen movie “Magic in the moonlight”, which I loved. Hope you all had a lovely weekend as well!

Cute Bookworm Style (For Hello Giggles)

This week’s post for Hello Giggles was inspired by all girls who love books (I’m one of them) I’m currently reading three books at the same time :) As always, for a where-to-buy list, just click on the image. (I personally want that tote!) And I also have this one available as a signed print (without the numbers) in my Etsy shop.
