Rand Acts of Kindness

2023 02 Random Acts Of Kindness Mangomini

Little Things You Can Do To Spread Positivity.

Yesterday was Rand Act of Kindness Day and this motivated me to think about little acts of kindness that I could do myself. Just small things that are easy to do, and often free, that can really brighten up somebody’s day. This also applies to little things you can do for yourself.

What do you think? Do you like my list? And, do you have suggestions for other acts of kindness to add? I would love to hear it and maybe I’ll add them to a second version of this one.

Have a lovely day!❤️

2023 Winter Faves Cindy Mangomini

Little Things That I’m Loving This Winter.

Little things that are making my winter extra comfy and cozy, and I felt like drawing.

In case you’re wondering: my insulated bottle is from Mizu, the hemp lip balm and shea body butter are both from The Body Shop. The wool blanket is from H&M Home, the mittens are from a vintage shop.

I hope you’re all enjoying a cozy winter with lots of things, people and experiences that make you feel happy! ❤️

Hello February! (In Drawings)

2023 02 February blog Cindy Mangomini

Cozy Winter Mood At Home, Illustrated.

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

For February it’s all about creating coziness at home. When it’s raining and dark outside I love to chill inside with candles, snacks, a glass of wine, a good book or a nice show to watch under a warm blanket. I also give my plants a little extra attention, because some of them are struggling from the lack of light and the cold. What do you like to do in February?

PS. This illustration is from my 2023 Wall Calendar. I still have a few copies available on Etsy, now with 25% discount.

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.
