Hello Spring!

2019 spring plan Mangomini

Happy first day of spring! (On the Northern Hemisphere that is.) I love the start of a new season, because I’m someone who loves to make lists and plans and what better time to do that then at the start of a new season?⁣
This is an updated version of a get-ready-for-spring “action plan” that I made a few years ago. What are your plans for spring?⁣

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.

January Cold

This is an illustration from my perpetual/birthday calendar that fits very well to the Dutch weather at the moment… it’s so cold…brrrr! (Calendar available on Etsy, here.)

Adventure Chicken

2019 01 gran canaria mangomini

Illustrated recap of my recent trip to Gran Canaria. I enjoyed the nature, the food and the weather, had some great “accidental” adventures, met a lot of lovely people, slept on a beach under the stars, started a mini book club and drank quite a bit of Sangria. For now it’s back to work, but I can’t wait to go back to the beautiful Canary Islands!

Ps. The mini book club had 2 members who were both reading Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman at the same time; A perfect holiday read, I enjoyed it very much!

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.

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