World Environment Day

Today is World Environment Day. The perfect day to share part 3 of my personal journey to a “low waste’ life. These are the changes that I have personally made. I completely understand that not every option is available to everyone. But even if you can only make a few of these changes, you can make a difference. And if everyone tries a little bit, together we can accomplish a lot! ⠀

In the illustration above I have combined (almost) all of the changes that I have made over the last year(s). Below you see part 1, 2 and 3 of my “journey to zero waste”. Starting with the latest one, Part 3.

Hello June!

2019 Hello June Mangomini

Can you believe it’s June already? A new month means it’s time for a new calendar page. This is the ‘June’ page from my 2019 calendar. I hope this month will be filled with lots of sunny picnic days, just like I drew here 😉

Couples “Portrait”

This is a custom couples “portrait” commission that I made for Annabel and Coen, to celebrate their wedding anniversary. I was very happy to do it, because, as you can see, they have a very cute & cozy style!⠀

More is more!

Here is another friend “portrait”. This time it’s my good friend Nadine, who is a real “more is more’ type of girl: very colorful, with big hair, a big heart and big personality! So of course, I had to draw her style.🌼



Happy King’s Day!

Nederland Mangomini low

Happy King’s day! Today we Dutchies celebrate our King’s birthday. That means: celebrating all day, preferably outside, and everything (including ourselves) in orange!
This is my “Nederland” postcard, with typical Dutch things on it. We may be a small country but there’s still a lot to love here and it’s usually very ‘gezellig’, especially on a day like today!

For my non-Dutch followers, some of the typical Dutch foods on here are (from top to bottom): hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles to eat on your bread, usually for breakfast), stroopwafel (waffle filled with caramel syrup), patatje met (French fries with mayonnaise), tompoes (a very sweet pastry) and drop (salty liquorice).

Card available in my Etsy shop, here.

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.
