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.

On my wishlist: brown Dr. Martens boots and Le Creuset Dutch oven.

2021 Lockdown Life Cindy Mangomini

Making The Most Of Winter Lockdown Life.

Illustrated recap of how I’m making the most of the cold and dark Dutch lockdown evenings. I look forward to more daylight soooo much (vitamine D, please!) and being able to spend more evenings outside, but for now this is what most of my evenings look like. Not too bad actually.. 😉

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.⁠

Enjoy Rainy Days

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!

Pajamas To Work Day

Happy National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day!

Today, April 16th, is National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day, which this year is a “normal” day for many. As an illustrator I’m used to working from home, so I can easily wear pajames to work most days. But after more than a year of lockdown life I’m so sick of wearing pyjamas & sweatpants every day that I find myself wanting to dress up for work more and more. How about you? Do you feel the same?

This drawing shows you some of the things that can usually be found in my work space plus my pajama-outfit of course.😉

While working I like to listen to music (Ben Howard mostly) or podcasts. Podcasts I’m enjoying at the moment include: Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend, Don’t ask Tig and SmartLess. Podcast recommendations are always welcome!💚

If you want to see the end result of what I make, you can visit my Etsy shop. It’s filled with cute & colorful hand drawn items and ships worldwide.💚 You can also follow me on Instagram and Pinterest for regular updates.
