Perfect weather… to stay inside!

Although I always have every intention to go outside, no matter what the weather is like, in reality I find the cold winter temperatures to be a perfect excuse to chill inside and not leave my house. Luckily I have a lot of nice things to draw there as well. (Illustration available as prints and greeting cards in my Etsy shop!)

January Cold

Adventure Chicken

2019 01 gran canaria mangomini

Illustrated recap of my recent trip to Gran Canaria. I enjoyed the nature, the food and the weather, had some great “accidental” adventures, met a lot of lovely people, slept on a beach under the stars, started a mini book club and drank quite a bit of Sangria. For now it’s back to work, but I can’t wait to go back to the beautiful Canary Islands!

Ps. The mini book club had 2 members who were both reading Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman at the same time; A perfect holiday read, I enjoyed it very much!

2019 Goals

less stuff cindy mangomini

2019 goals! This year I want to continue to try to live a more minimalistic life, reduce my waste and focus more on experiences rather than on things. So less stuff, more adventures! (I do still like to draw ‘things’ and I will keep on doing that.) What are your goals or plans for 2019?

Hello 2019!

2019 mangomini januaryHappy New Year!! I love the new year because it means a fresh start full of new ideas, adventures, plans and goals. In 2019 I want to continue to live a more minimalistic life with less stuff and less waste. I want to stay creative and productive, learn some new skills, travel, read more books and stay healthy.  And I want to enjoy myself while doing all these things of course! What are your plans/ goals for the new year?
