Fighting the Monday blues…

2018 fighting monday blues Mangomini 1

I’m fighting the Monday blues today. It’s raining, I have a fever and just a bad mood. So, I’m trying to cheer myself up with lots of tea, chocolate and (a little bit of) rosé wine.

Happy Book Lovers Day!

2018 wk 32 Bookloversday Mangomini

Happy Book Lovers Day! What books are you reading at the moment? I’m reading The little book of Lykke by Meik Wiking and I’ve just started in Freedom by Jonathan Franzen.

Illustration made for Hello Giggles.

Shop: Library Card Pillow from Society6 – Readers gonna Read tote bag from Etsy. The exact same one as used in my drawing is currently unavailable 😦

Yas Queen!

Queer Eye Mangomini

Here’s another Queer Eye inspired illustration. This will be the last one (I think!) I just love the show SO much, I can’t seem to stop myself from drawing about it.

For other Queer Eye lovers out there: I have this available as a print on Etsy.

Queer Eye Inspired Swimwear

2018 wk 29 Swimwear Queer Eye Mangomini

This week’s illustration for Hello Giggles is a collection of Queer Eye inspired swimwear ánd body-positivity. Each bikini or swimsuit is inspired by one of the members of the Fab Five. Can you tell which swimsuit was inspired by which #fabfive member?

In case you’re wondering: some of these exist (avocado bikini, floral Bardot swimsuit). The rainbow swimsuit is from Forever 21 but sold out. The other two I made up, but you can find similar styles online.

 

 

Kelly Clarkson Song

Kelly JVN blauw I’m totally obsessed with Queer Eye at the moment. Luckily I’m not the only one, so I can always find friends to share my obsession with. We can talk about the show and every YouTube video we can find about it, for hours and hours. We also love to share our favourite quotes from the fab 5. We especially love this one. So much, that I turned it into a postcard. You can find it in my Etsy shop here.

Heatwave Uniform

2018 heatwave uniform Cindy MangominiThis is basically my heatwave uniform and survival kit that I wear and use when I absolutely need to go outside during the sunny hours. I try to avoid it as much as I can because this much sun with pale skin and freckles is a real challenge!
