Lovely Lisbon!

2018 Lisbon Cindy Mangomini

Last week I visited Portugal for the first time. While I was there I saw Ben Howard in concert in Lisbon (the first concert of his new tour!) Needless to say I had a wonderful time!

My travel read was Born a Crime by Trevor Noah. Moving and very funny!

My wish-list for spring.

My spring wishlist Cindy Mangomini

“You must always know what it is that you want.” Some wise words from The Alchemist. So here is my wish-list for spring 😉

(PS. the pizza tote bag is from Illustrated Identity on Etsy.)

The Dutch “summer”

"Lucky dress" Mangomini

I’m trying to fight off a cold by drinking lots of fresh mint and ginger tea with honey. Also, I’m eating a lot of chocolate, because that always helps as well 😉 I’m wearing my first ever Primark item (I’m not proud). I had to layer it with warm tights and a big cardigan, to stay warm enough for the Dutch summer weather. The best news is that I managed to get tickets to see Ben Howard in November, YAY!!

 

Bye bye 2013!

What a special year 2013 has been for me. After a not so great start, things started to fall together  in unexpected and great ways as the year went on. And throughout the whole year I’ve received so much love and appreciation about my work, from people all over the world. So a big THANK YOU  for all the  liking, following, commenting and sharing, I really appreciate it very much!

Here are some of my favourite things of 2013. See you all in 2014!
