So far this October I have been very busy working on a number of projects. But I also made time for some shopping! After all, one of the most fun thing about the start of a new season is sorting your wardrobe and adding some new (or rediscovered old) favorites! I love to mix new with vintage and I’m especially happy with my “new” vintage coat, that will keep me warm all winter!

Wearing: coat, vintage – bracelet, alà – off the shoulder top, mittens and underwear, H&M – skirt and leather bag, vintage – lip balm, Maybelline – shoes, Carmens

Drinking: lots of tea with honey

Listening to: The Lumineers and Kings of Leon

I ♥ Autumn!


This was actually the last print that I finished for my new calender. In it are some of my favorite things for fall: tea, mittens and a warm oversized scarf.

Wearing: jacket, dress and mittens, H&M – scarf and bag, vintage – shoes, Sacha.



Happy Birthday!


Happy Birthday to my Birthday Calendar! It’s finally finished, yay! The calendar consists of 12 pages with full color illustrations on each page. Plus a clip to hang it someplace nice, so you never have to miss an important date again.

I have the calendars available in my Etsy shop as of today. I think they will make lovely Christmas gifts so don’t wait too long if you want to have it in time for the Holidays.



Hello Autumn!


Bye bye Dutch summer, you were short but sweet. Hello Autumn! I look forward to autumn walks, Netflix nights, home made brownies, boardgames, books, dinner parties, warm socks and lots and lots of tea!

Orange baby!


September so far: sunshine,  some orange in my Dutch wardrobe, The Lumineers’ Cleopatra on repeat and finally reading The Catcher in the Rye.


Ahoy, Sexy!

Scandinavian Style

Scandinavian style - Cindy Mangomini

I made this illustration for the launch of Oh! You Pretty Things Magazine. I was asked by the magazine’s editor in chief  (and über-stylish fashion photographer) Youna Baupoux to illustrate my idea of typical Scandinavian style. Just click here to read the oh-so pretty magazine!
