Hello February! (In Drawings)

2022 Hello February Cindy Mangomini blog

February Style Inspiration, Illustrated.

Hello February! I always love the start of a new month to make plans, set goals and think of ways to make the most of that particular month.

For February it’s all about creating coziness inside, while getting as much daylight as possible and enjoying the rare sunny days to the fullest. It’s also a month to give my plants extra attention, because some of them are struggling from the lack of light. What are your plans for this month?

This illustration is an updated version of one of my wall calendar’s February pages. Sadly I didn’t have time to make one for this year, but keep an eye out for the 2023 calendar later this year.

Take a look here and here for my February pages from previous years.

Making The Most Of Winter Lockdown Life.

Illustrated recap of how I’m making the most of the cold and dark Dutch lockdown evenings. I look forward to more daylight soooo much (vitamine D, please!) and being able to spend more evenings outside, but for now this is what most of my evenings look like. Not too bad actually.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Loving: Iโ€™m in love with this pretty geranium that one of my friends gave me. It has such pretty colors โ™ฅ โ

Hey June! Hello New Month!

2021 June Calendar Mangomini blog

My Sunny Plans For June, In Drawings.

It’s June, and a new month, as always, means a new calendar page. I filled the June page illustration with sunny, spring-in-the-city vibes. A cool but comfy outfit to stroll around the city, have a drink outside or a picnic in the park. The last few days the rain has finally stopped here in the Netherlands, so I can actually act out my illustration in real life๐Ÿ˜Ž

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy month!๐Ÿ’š

Enjoy Rainy Days

2021 Things To Do On A Rainy Day Mangomini

Things To Do On A Rainy Day

Rainy days are not so bad! They are a perfect excuse for taking some time to care for your introvert self. This illustration gives you a few ideas on how to make the most of rainy days.

We’ve been having a lot of rain. I like use the extra time spend inside to give my houseplants extra attention. I also take more time to read, stream a show or movie while giving myself an at home pedicure. Rainy days are also perfect for creative projects, home baking or trying out new recipes. You can also use them to write postcards to your friends (my Etsy shop happens to be filled with cute hand drawn greeting cards!), discover new music or finally do some of the tasks on your to-do list (selling old clothes online is on my list).

What do you like to do on bad weather days? I hope this drawing inspired you to make the most of them!
