February Favourites

What I Wore, 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!

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. ⁠

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

PS. This years wall calendar is sold out, but I do have many cute hand drawn cards and prints available in my Etsy shop.

Quarantine Casual

2020 04 Quarantine casual Mangomini

At the end of every month I usually make an illustrated recap. This is March. I call it “quarantine casual”. As you can see I’ve been taking care of myself and keeping busy, but I also take time to relax and treat myself regularly. Full disclosure: in reality the tops on here are black. Stay safe! 💚

What I’m Hoarding!

Yes, I’m also guilty of ‘hoarding’, but only chocolate and rosé wine. Am I doing it wrong?⁠ 😬
But seriously, don’t hoard! I only took 1 or 2 extra than I normally would, I swear.⁠✌🏻😇
Stay safe. Stay positive. Stay home! 💚

Stay Positive Drink Tea! (Limited Edition Digital Download)

We find ourselves in strange and scary times. That’s why I’m sending you some positive vibes with this “Stay Positive, Drink Tea” print.

I’m offering this on Etsy as a limited edition digital downloadable file (which I normally don’t do) because, like many others, my own situation has changed as a result of recent events. Almost all of the shops that sell my products are closed at the moment. Which means a big loss of income for me. That’s why I’ve decided to temporarily offer this digitally.  It’s a super fast and easy way for you to have this image in your house ánd you’re supporting me and my work at the same time. A win win situation, if you ask me. Only 25 available, so don’t wait too long. Your support will be greatly appreciated!
