Spring Goals (French Girl Style)

2018 spring Jeanne Damas Cindy Mangomini

Yes, I’m a bit obsessed with French style I know 🙂 This is How to be Parisian, part 4 (!) and totally inspired by French blogger Jeanne Damas and her fashion label Rouje. I love all of their collections so far and achieving this casual but feminine look will be my fashion goal for spring. (I will probably fail, since working mostly from home has turned me into a lazy dresser).

To get this look: blouse, Rouje – lipstick, MAC – nail polish, Chanel – dry shampoo, Klorane – black bag, Rouje – straw bag  ASOS – moisturiser, Bioderma – lip balm, Nuxe – straight leg jeans, Levi’s – espadrilles, Rouje – boots, Rouje


My pre-spring favorites!

It’s been a while since I’ve made one of these “what I wore” drawings. I finally made time to draw some of my personal spring favorites. I can’t wait to switch the boots for my favorite sandals!

Wearing: top, H&M – earrings, ASOS – necklace, May 21 – jeans, Monki Kimomo – bag, We Ar Vintage – boots,  can’t remember! – lipbalm, Maybelline

Almost spring!

Almost spring - in between weather -Mangomini

Seeing all the new spring collections online and in shops, is making me long for spring even more! Also, I’m just tired of my winter wardrobe. So, this week for Hello Giggles, I illustrated how to add some new spring items to your wardrobe right now, without freezing, a.k.a. in-between-weather wardrobe 😉 For the full story and where-to-buy info, just click here.


Meet the Artist

Meet the artist - Cindy Mangomini low

This is my version of “Meet the Artist”. I don’t share a lot of personal stuff on social media, but this is a way to get to know a little bit more about me. As you can see I love tea (drink it all day, everyday), books, plants, thrift store shopping, making lists and plans, using my favourite art supplies, patchouli perfume and I drink rosé wine even in winter. I don’t like phone calls (I never answer because I panic!) and I hate it when I accidentally mistake my paint-water for my tea…..yuck!


Happy Galentine’s Day!

Galentines Day Cindy Mangomini low

Happy Galentine’s Day everyone!

I made this illustration last year for Hello Giggles. I’ve updated it just a little bit for this year. For those who don’t know about Galentine’s day yet: It’s an unofficial holiday that more and more girls/women are celebrating every year on february 13th, to celebrate female friendships.



New cards for Valentine/Galentine!

So, after a sunny holiday break to Tenerife, I’m back at work and my Etsy shop is open again. I’ve added a few new postcards for Valentine’s- and Galentine’s day. You can find them in this special section in my shop.

Scandinavian winter

Scandinavian Winter-Lagom-Mangomini

This week’s illustration for Hello Giggles was inspired by the book “Lagom” by Linnea Dunne, about the secrets of the Swedish art of balanced living. “Lagom” doesn’t really translate, but means something like “not to0 little, not too much, just right”. I really loved reading this book full of nice tips and recipes, all in Scandinavian style (which I LOVE).
