Draw me like one of your French girls

How to be Parisien part3 - Cindy Mangomini

I’m back from a sun-filled winter break on Fuerteventura, where I met many lovely people.  Among them where Margot & Youna, two real Parisian girls. They were só stylish and cool that I just had to draw them! I know this is already my 3rd Parisian-themed illustration, but hey: pourquoi pas?

Camping, not Glamping!

Camping Schiermonnikoog - Cindy Mangomini

I just returned from a short but lovely camping trip to the beautiful Dutch island Schiermonnikoog. Since we had to carry our own luggage the whole journey it was definitely more of a camping than glamping experience, and this is basically what I wore the whole trip.

Wearing: fanny pack,  The Sting – mixed bracelets, Ala and Anna+Nina – sunglasses, Sacha – bikinitop, H&M – flip flops, bought on holiday in Greece – shorts, vintage Levi’s – bikini bottom, Newyorker – Make up bag, Kruidvat – sleeping bag, Hema – top, Mango.

Fresh start during a heat wave!

January favorites so far
