Hello January!

I hope you’re having an awesome January so far. I’m recovering from the flu and using the time to think about my plans and goals for 2020. A new year is perfect for a fresh start. That’s why I’m having a BIG WINTER SALE on ETSY, with 20% discount on almost all items.
This illustration  is from my 2020 wall calendar. I still have some available on Etsy, now also with 20% discount!

Bye Bye 2019!!

Thank you so much for all your support in 2019!! The year flew by and I look forward to a fresh start in 2020. My head is full of ideas and plans. ⁠
Enjoy the last day of 2019 and wishing you all the best for 2020. See you next year! xx⁠

Personal Style December

This will probably be my last what I wore illustration of 2019. I haven’t made that many of these this year, because I just haven’t been buying a lot of clothes. One of my goals at the start of the year was “Less stuff, more adventures” and I really have gotten rid of so much stuff already ánd bought very little new stuff. All the items in this drawing were bought before 2019, except for the skirt (and the food of course!) As for the “more adventure”part: I did travel quite a bit this year and tried some new things. I will continue to keep this goal going into 2020, with even less (unnecessary) stuff and even more adventures!

Hello Winter!

Today is the first day of winter (if you’re in the Northern hemisphere like me). Soon the days will start to get longer again, but until then I love candles and the pretty Christmas lights everywhere. I also love game nights with mulled wine, staying in and keeping warm with a hot water bottle, drinking tea and reading a book or having a Netflix night. I will try to go outside a lot to go ice skating for example, or have a nice winter walk, preferably in a snow covered landscape (followed by  more mulled wine of course 😉 )

What are some of the things that you love about winter?

 

International Tea Day!

 

Happy international tea day! I’m a huge tea-lover, so of course I have to celebrate this. This is actually a day to bring attention to the often poor working conditions in the tea industry. So: tea is always a good idea, but make sure you buy from tea brands that support fair trade!⁠
