Hello Winter!

Hello winter Mangomini

Today is the first day of winter (if you’re in the Northern hemisphere like me). And these are some of the things I like about winter. I love that there are pretty lights and Christmas ornaments everywhere. I love game nights with mulled wine. I love staying in and keeping warm with a hot water bottle, tea and candles to read a book or have a Netflix night. I also love to go outside to go ice skating or have a nice winter walk, preferably in a snow covered landscape, with more mulled wine afterwards.

What are things that you love about winter?

November favourites!

2018 november cold Mangomini.jpg

November is almost over, so time for an illustrated recap of what I wore most a.k.a. my November favourites. The last part of this month has been cold, so I’ve been keeping warm in some new (coat) but mostly old favourites.

#meetthemaker, part 2

Meet the maker hello Mangomini

Thanks to everyone who follows me here! I noticed quite a lot of new follower as well, thank you so much for that! Here is a little bit about me, in a drawing of course. An updated version of an earlier #meetthemaker illustration that I did. Hope you like it!
PS. I still have 20% discount on everything in my Etsy shop. Sale ends tomorrow.

PS2. The book you see is The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho, one of my all time favourites.

Things I Like

Favorite things right now Mangomini

A quick sketch of some of my favourite things right now. I’m trying to shop less but better. So less impulse buys and more things that I can enjoy for a long time. I’m also looking forward to 2 more Ben Howard concerts. Money spend on experiences is always money well spend, especially if it’s Ben Howard (in my opinion anyway!). While working from home I like to listen to podcasts to keep me company and informed. I recently discovered By the book and I’ve been binge-listening ever since.

PS. Nothing on here is sponsored, just things that I really like.

I don’t have time to do many of these “what I wore” drawings any more. But here’s one with my personal October favourites. I especially love my new faux-suede skirt. ♥

Personal favorites

2018 perfect fashion look3

I was asked to come up with my own personal favourite fashion look (more on this later!) and it came out something like this. Including some old favourites from my own closet and, of course, a glass of rosé.

My wish-list for spring.

My spring wishlist Cindy Mangomini

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