Pajamas to work!

2019 pajamas to work Mangomini

Today is National Pajamas To Work Day, which for me is really just a regular work day.  Because I work mostly from home, wearing pajames to work is never a problem 😉 In this illustration you can see some of the things that can usually be found in my work space. While working I like to listen to music or podcasts, although sometimes I like silence too. My favorite podcasts at the moment are Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend, By The Book and Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness.

Festival fever!

2019 festival season Mangomini

Are you ready for festival season? For the last 5 years or so I’ve been making these festival style illustrations. It’s fun to see how much my own style has changed over the years. For me, music festivals will always be all about the music, but there’s no harm in having a little fun with your outfit as well, is there? 😉
What festivals are you going to this summer? And who do you want to see perform most?⁣

Hello Spring!

2019 spring plan Mangomini

Happy first day of spring! (On the Northern Hemisphere that is.) I love the start of a new season, because I’m someone who loves to make lists and plans and what better time to do that then at the start of a new season?⁣
This is an updated version of a get-ready-for-spring “action plan” that I made a few years ago. What are your plans for spring?⁣

Plant A Flower Day

Plant a flower day Mangomini

Happy Plant A Flower Day! The perfect day to plant some flowers as you wait for the start of spring. If you choose a bee-friendly seed mix, you will not only have colourful flowers to enjoy, but you will also help save the bees! I already planted mine.

Happy King’s Day!

2018 Kings Day Mangomini

Happy King’s day! Today we Dutchies celebrate our King’s birthday. That means: celebrating all day, preferably outside, and everything (including yourself) in orange!

For my non-Dutch followers, some of the typical Dutch foods in here are (from top to bottom):  tompoes (a very sweet pastry, with an orange layer especially for King’s Day), drop (salty liquorice), stroopwafel (waffle filled with caramel syrup) and hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles to eat on your bread, usually for breakfast).

The book is: The Cather in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

My wish-list for spring.

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