Hello April! Happy April Mood In Drawings.

2021 Hello April Calendar Illustration Mangomini

Happy Spring Plans, Illustrated.

Happy first day of April! A new month means a new calendar page, even in this crazy time. This is from my 2020 Wall Calendar. As you can see I chose a happy, casual and pizza-loving theme 😉 When I was putting together my calendar I was doing a lot of home improvement projects (lockdown had just started) and it shows in this drawing. What are your plans for April?

Spring Mood 2021, In Drawings.

2021 Spring Mood Mangomini

Spring Style 2021, Pinterest Inspiration Drawing

Watercolor drawing of my spring 2021 mood, inspired by my Pinterest mood boards. Every season I like to look at Pantone’s new color trend predictions and search Pinterest for spring outfit inspiration. When it comes to fashion, I’m not a trend follower any more. I mostly stick to my basics, like jeans, polka dots, comfy sneakers and bohemian style accessories. But I also like to add a few fresh elements and colors. You can follow me on Pinterest or  Instagram if you’re curious to see more things I like.

Second Lockdown Spring

This time last year, I did not expect to be going into our second lockdown spring. I really hope by the time summer starts, we’ll all be able to enjoy it together again. For now, I will just enjoy it as much as possible, close to home, and in small company.

Retro Rainy Day Outfit, In Drawings.

My fashion mood today. Yep, it’s back to winter again. It’s cold and rainy and perfect weather to stay inside and work on my illustrations. Do you like the retro/vintage color combination of this fashion look? Wine red (bordeaux) is probably my favorite color to wear (besides black) and also my favorite color to drink at the moment.😉 Enjoy your day!

February Favourites, Illustrated.

What I Wore Most This February, In Drawings

Because it’s #meetthemaker month here is another entry for my hand drawn illustrated fashion diary, where I draw my personal fashion, food and overall favourites.

It was hard to sum up my February favourites in one drawing because we went from freezing cold and snow, to super sunny spring weather, back to freezing cold again the whole month. I’m not complaining because I loved the snow and I definitely enjoyed the first warm days. Kayak season is open! Picnic season as well, although that’s open all year for me. I also did a few more cold water dips in the river, Wim Hof style, and plan to do many more.

For this illustration I chose my “in between weather” favourites: Levi’s ribcage jeans, a cute bohemian shirt and my Ugg boots, that are perfect for quickly getting my feet warm after being in the cold water. Plus one of my favourite vintage bags and my favourite face mask.

I could also have included my mittens, beanie hat, bikini and sandals, because I also wore all of those several times last month. You might see them in a March recap. 😉

As you can tell, despite the lockdown and evening clock, I had a lot of fun in nature. In, on and near the water and picnicking and hiking. I hope March will bring more of the same.

Wishing you a happy & healthy month as well!⁠💚

Hello March 2021! (In Drawings)

March Illustrated Calendar Page

Hello March! A new month, as always, means a new calendar page. This is the illustration from the March page on my 2021 wall calendar. I went for cute and comfy knitwear layers, paired with my favorite blue mom jeans and red Dr. Martens boots. I also added tea, chocolate and plants for extra coziness. And since we’re still in lockdown and we have an evening clock between 21h and 4:30 there’s a lot of time for reading books, creative projects and watching Netflix.

Does this match your plans or mood for the new month? We’ve had such a sunny week that this drawing feels very wintery now, but I know in many places it’s still very cold. ⁠

Hello February! (In Drawings)

February Style Inspiration, Illustrated.

A new month still means a new calendar page, even though this page will probably stay pretty empty since we’re still in lockdown here. I guess I could start marking what I watched on Netflix on it…🤔

Hopefully by the end of this month things will have changed for the better and I can finally start filling up this calendar. In the meantime I will just make the best of it and enjoy a lot of chilling at home time.💚 Do you have exciting plans for February or are you also still stuck at home?⁠

January Favourites, In Drawings.

My January Favourites, Illustrated Recap.

As you might be able to tell from this illustration, despite the lockdown and an evening clock here in the Netherlands, my January has been pretty OK and much better than my December.

Why? Let’s see:⁠
– Getting my Vitamin D with regular muddy hikes in good company⁠
– New music and an album coming soon from Ben Howard⁠
-‘Conan O’brien needs a friend’ makes me laugh so much every week.⁠
– I did 2 (very) cold water dives in the river and felt SO good afterwards⁠
– A lovely sunny trip to the island of Brrrrr with Andrei⁠
– A lot of chilling at home, cooking, reading, dancing, Netflix, etc with zero FOMO⁠

Let’s Cuddle Up, Illustrated.

National Cuddle Up Day, In Drawings

It’s National Cuddle Up Day today and I’ve updated one of my Best Nine illustrations of 2020 with this day in mind.
The Dutch weather is perfect for cuddling up under a blanket at the moment, it’s so cold! So, put on something warm & comfy (2020 has been the year I embraced sweatpants!) and cuddle up. If you don’t have anyone to cuddle with, remember that plant love is also real love. I REALLY love my plants, so who’s to say that my plants don’t also really love me?? I choose to believe they do, haha. Oh, and also: real cuddles will be making a comeback soon!⁠ Have a nice day!⁠

If this drawing is giving you all sorts of happy and cozy feelings, I have a very similar illustration available on a postcard on Etsy.
