I’m not much of a trend follower but I am totally embracing the neutral colour trend at the moment (yes, leopard print is a neutral!) Any trend that makes beige seem fresh and not boring is impressive, if you ask me ;)
I’m also still reading ánd working on my own little Happiness Project and my 19 goals for 2019, yay!
Happy Cherry Pie day! What better way to celebrate this special day then with a quote from the world’s most famous cherry pie lover, Agent Dale Cooper from Twin Peaks? (And with a slice of cherry pie, of course.)
Today is Warm Sweater Day, a Dutch national initiative that draws attention to saving energy. If we all become more aware of the energy that we use, we can help protect the environment. So today (and why not every day?) turn down the heating a little, put on your favourite warm sweater and save energy. Extra points for wearing a vintage sweater! 😉 #warmetruiendag
#valentinesdaygoals (PS. Your good friend Rosé Wine can also come!)
Because I really love all of you more than chocolate (and I really like chocolate) I’m offering a special Valentine’s Day discount in my Etsy shop. Use code: mangominilove to get 14% off everything! (Minimum order €8)
Happy Galentine’s Day, a day of “ladies celebrating ladies” (which we should do everyday!)
When life gives you lemons, you better find a good way to use those lemons! Like in your illustrations or in a nice cocktail (or both!) These are some of my 2019 favourites, so far.
Happy homemade soup day! With the cold winter weather and so many people down with a cold or flu, it’s a perfect day for some healthy and tasty homemade soup. I made these “Get well soup” cards especially for The Broth Bar in Maastricht. They serve delicious, organic, healthy, home made broth and soup (also to-go) for when you don’t have time to make it yourself. Lots of gluten free and vegan options too!
A Vintage Winter Mood For February, In Drawings Of Course!
Can you believe it’s already February?! Me neither, but it really is, so time to turn my calendar to a new page. This month illustration has a vintage winter fashion vibe. I actually own everything in this outfit, except the glasses. They are all personal vintage fashion finds,(I love to shop vintage) paired with tea and chocolate because, well.. why not?
If you like this drawing I have two very similar cards available on Etsy with the same vintage fashion vibes here and here.
