Hello February! (In Drawings)

2022 Hello February Cindy Mangomini blog

February Style Inspiration, Illustrated.

Hello February! I always love the start of a new month to make plans, set goals and think of ways to make the most of that particular month.

For February it’s all about creating coziness inside, while getting as much daylight as possible and enjoying the rare sunny days to the fullest. It’s also a month to give my plants extra attention, because some of them are struggling from the lack of light. What are your plans for this month?

This illustration is an updated version of one of my wall calendar’s February pages. Sadly I didn’t have time to make one for this year, but keep an eye out for the 2023 calendar later this year.

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

2021 Things To Do On A Rainy Day Mangomini

Things To Do On A Rainy Day

Rainy days are not so bad! They are a perfect excuse for taking some time to care for your introvert self. This illustration gives you a few ideas on how to make the most of rainy days.

We’ve been having a lot of rain. I like use the extra time spend inside to give my houseplants extra attention. I also take more time to read, stream a show or movie while giving myself an at home pedicure. Rainy days are also perfect for creative projects, home baking or trying out new recipes. You can also use them to write postcards to your friends (my Etsy shop happens to be filled with cute hand drawn greeting cards!), discover new music or finally do some of the tasks on your to-do list (selling old clothes online is on my list).

What do you like to do on bad weather days? I hope this drawing inspired you to make the most of them!

Little Things That Make Me Happy

Finding Joy In The Little Things In Life, In March.

Time for my March favorites! This is a drawing of all the little things that were making me happy in March. Nothing made me happier last month (or this month!) than new music from Ben Howard! In fact, in less than 2 hours Iโ€™ll be watching his live stream concert so please do not disturb around that time.๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Other things that I loved about March included my regular cold water dips in the river, a lot of picnicking (plus a lot @mr.moonen_wijnhandel wine) and, of course, my plants!โ ๐ŸŒฑ
I hope you also had a good month and are having a happy & healthy April so far! Have a lovely day! โ ๐Ÿ’š

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 weโ€™re still in lockdown here. I guess I could start marking what I watched on Netflix on itโ€ฆ๐Ÿค”

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.๐Ÿ’š Do you have exciting plans for February or are you also still stuck at home?โ

Hello Winter!

Today is the first official day of winter (on the Northern hemisphere that is). And although this one will be a little (or a lot) different from other years, thereโ€™s still so much to enjoy. For starters: the days will start to get longer again, hurray!! And what about candles, cozy knitwear, yummy comfort food and long winter walks followed by hot drinks? (Mulled wine is my favourite!) Winter can also be a time to recharge, find new inspiration and make plans. Are you as excited for the start of winter as I am? I would love to hear it and why.
