Europe, go vote!

2019 05 euro vote mangomini

To all my European friends and followers: please don’t forget to vote in the next few days! It’s SO important to use the power and the influence that you have. And afterwards, why not treat yourself to something nice, you deserve it! xx ⠀

PS. For the Netherlands, tomorrow (May 23th) is the day to vote.⠀

PPS. Why not give your vote to a woman so we can get more women elected? 💚

More is more!

Here is another friend “portrait”. This time it’s my good friend Nadine, who is a real “more is more’ type of girl: very colorful, with big hair, a big heart and big personality! So of course, I had to draw her style.🌼



Eat What You Want Day

Eat what you want day Mangomini

Today is Eat What You Want Day, and for me that looks something like this. These are some of my favorite foods that I could eat every day, and probably would if it wasn’t so unhealthy to do so. But this day was created to, for 1 day, just forget a little bit about being healthy all the time and treat yourself, even if your favorite foods aren’t the healthiest.

Lost Sock Memorial Day

Lost Sock Memorial Day Cindy Mangomini

Today is Lost Sock Memorial Day, a day to remember all the socks that went mysteriously missing. What Happened? Where did they go?⁣

I have this print framed above my washing machine and you can have it too, if you go to my Etsy shop 😉

Happy Whatever!

Celebrate whatever Mangomini

Happy Today! I often use special days or fun holidays as inspiration for my drawings, but you really don’t need a special day to celebrate. Find something to celebrate everyday, especially on Mondays, because they can be a little tough 😉 So, happy Monday! .. and let’s celebrate whatever!⁣

Happy King’s Day!

Nederland Mangomini low

Happy King’s day! Today we Dutchies celebrate our King’s birthday. That means: celebrating all day, preferably outside, and everything (including ourselves) in orange!
This is my “Nederland” postcard, with typical Dutch things on it. We may be a small country but there’s still a lot to love here and it’s usually very ‘gezellig’, especially on a day like today!

For my non-Dutch followers, some of the typical Dutch foods on here are (from top to bottom): hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles to eat on your bread, usually for breakfast), stroopwafel (waffle filled with caramel syrup), patatje met (French fries with mayonnaise), tompoes (a very sweet pastry) and drop (salty liquorice).

Card available in my Etsy shop, here.

Pajamas to work!

2019 pajamas to work Mangomini

Today is National Pajamas To Work Day, which for me is really just a regular work day.  Because I work mostly from home, wearing pajames to work is never a problem 😉 In this illustration you can see some of the things that can usually be found in my work space. While working I like to listen to music or podcasts, although sometimes I like silence too. My favorite podcasts at the moment are Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend, By The Book and Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness.
