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.🌼



Eat What You Want Day

Eat what you want day Mangomini

Today is Eat What You Want Day, and for me that looks something like this. These are some of my favorite foods that I could eat every day, and probably would if it wasn’t so unhealthy to do so. But this day was created to, for 1 day, just forget a little bit about being healthy all the time and treat yourself, even if your favorite foods aren’t the healthiest.

When life gives you lemons..

2019 favourites Mangomini

When life gives you lemons, you better find a good way to use those lemons! Like in your illustrations or in a nice cocktail (or both!) These are some of my 2019 favourites, so far.

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.
