Spring uniform 2018

2018 Spring uniform Cindy Mangomini

We’ve had some lovely spring weather here in the Netherlands lately and this is what I’ve been wearing (and doing) most. One of the books I’m currently reading is The little book of Hygge by Meik Wiking. I’ll definitely be making some illustrations inspired by this theme soon! And of course I’m always carrying my Dopper water bottle filled with fresh tap water to reduce my plastic waste.

Happy King’s Day!

2018 Kings Day Mangomini

Happy King’s day! Today we Dutchies celebrate our King’s birthday. That means: celebrating all day, preferably outside, and everything (including yourself) in orange!

For my non-Dutch followers, some of the typical Dutch foods in here are (from top to bottom):  tompoes (a very sweet pastry, with an orange layer especially for King’s Day), drop (salty liquorice), stroopwafel (waffle filled with caramel syrup) and hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles to eat on your bread, usually for breakfast).

The book is: The Cather in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
