Blue Monday Survival Tips, In Drawings.

2023 blue monday survival Cindy Mangomini

Ideas To Make Blue Monday A Happy Monday.

Today is Blue Monday, supposedly the most depressing day of the year. Since I often draw about self care, mental health and depression coping strategies I thought I’d give you some illustrated positive inspiration to make the most of Blue Monday.

In case you’re interested: for at home exercise I like Yoga With Adriene  Some of my favorite comedy podcasts are Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend and Tig & Cheryl: True Story. These always make me laugh.

If you want to treat yourself to something that will bring happiness all year: I still have a few 2023 wall calendars available on Etsy, now with a discount.

More Illustrated Positive Inspiration

If you like this one you will probably also like this other self care drawing and my illustrated mental health plan. You can also follow me on Instagram and Pinterest for regular updates or shop my illustrated papergoods on Etsy.

Some of my sunny fall faves. Outside it feels like spring here, but with autumn colours, not bad at all.😉

So what have I been up to this fall, so far? Enjoying long hikes and autumn picnics of course. I’ve also started baking more and taken up knitting (so far it’s going well) and finally went to my first post lockdown concert, yay! Hope you are enjoying fall as well. Have a nice Monday and take care.❤️‍🍁😎⁠

Bonjour! I hope you had a good week. Here it became autumn from one day to the next. It’s just raining all day, perfect for working from home on my illustrations.

My 2023 wall calendar is already available, as well as my more summery ‘Bonjour’ card, and lots of other colourful, hand drawn items. Why not take a look in my shop? Have a nice weekend and au revoir!🥐🥖🍷☕️🛒❤️‍

Happy Little Things!😍

Random Things That I’m Loving This Winter.

Little things that I like at the moment, and felt like drawing. Most of this I own, a few are still on my wish-list. In case you’re wondering: the candle holders, candles and pomegranate green tea are from Sostrene Grene. Refill shea conditioner from The Body Shop, Good Karma shower gel from LUSH. On my wishlist: brown Dr. Martens boots and Le Creuset Dutch oven.

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy new year, with lots of things, people and experiences that make you feel happy! ❤️

Love/Hate Relationship.

Tuesday Two 7 Geranium Mosquito Mangomini

The Mosquito Struggle Is Real!

Tuesday Two. I’ve been sharing these on Instragram, but not here, I realised. This week it’s one thing I love and one thing I hate. ⁠
Loving: I’m in love with this pretty geranium that one of my friends gave me. It has such pretty colors ♥ ⁠
Hating: I’m being eaten alive by mosquitos at the moment. They love me. I hate them. They are winning.⁠
