Spring Style (I Wish!)

2017 mei update Mangomini

May calender page from 2 years ago, slightly updated, but I still like this look (and still wear/use most of these things).⁣ Unfortunately, the Dutch weather today is not suited for anything on here, except maybe an indoor picnic.

PS. The birthday calendar where this page is from is available in my Etsy Shop.

Embracing Neutrals

2019 neutrals Mangomini

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!⁣

When life gives you lemons..

2019 favourites Mangomini

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.

January Cold

This is an illustration from my perpetual/birthday calendar that fits very well to the Dutch weather at the moment… it’s so cold…brrrr! (Calendar available on Etsy, here.)

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!

November favourites!

2018 november cold Mangomini.jpg

November is almost over, so time for an illustrated recap of what I wore most a.k.a. my November favourites. The last part of this month has been cold, so I’ve been keeping warm in some new (coat) but mostly old favourites.

October favorites

2018 october Mangomini

I don’t have time to do many of these “what I wore” drawings any more. But here’s one with my personal October favourites. I especially love my new faux-suede skirt. ♥
