November favorites, so far.

2016-november-dali-katch-cindy-mangomini

So far, I have spend most of this November inside. After a few days in Amsterdam, where I went to see The Lumineers (yay!), the flu got the best of me. Today I’m finally back working at some illustrations. Here are some of my favorite things of the moment, including my new Dali Katch speakers. They sound even better than they look! I take them into my work room when I’m working, into my kitchen when I’m cooking, and yes, into my bedroom when I’m sick in bed with the flu. After all, music heals, hopefully even flu 😉

Octobrrrrr

2016-oktoberrrr-cindy-mangomini

So far this October I have been very busy working on a number of projects. But I also made time for some shopping! After all, one of the most fun things about the start of a new season is sorting your wardrobe and adding some new (or rediscovered old) favorites! I love to mix new with vintage and I’m especially happy with my “new” vintage coat, that will keep me warm all winter!

Wearing: coat, vintage – bracelet, alà – off the shoulder top, mittens and underwear, H&M – skirt and leather bag, vintage – lip balm, Maybelline – shoes, Carmens

Drinking: lots of tea with honey

Finally Summer!

2016 finally summer -Cindy Mangomini

We’ve finally had a few lovely sunny days here! It was almost too hot to draw but I still managed to finished another calender page.

Dutch Summer

2016 Dutch Summer - Cindy Mangomini

The Dutch summer so far: rain, rain and more rain. Excellent summer weather to stay inside, read, drink tea and have an occasional sunny cocktail.

 

 

Hey June!

2016 June - Cindy Mangomini

This is actually not exactly what I’ve been wearing most at the moment. We’ve had nothing but rain for the last weeks. But yesterday was sunny and today is looking good so far, so I thought this would be a good time to share my “June’ illustration for my upcoming birthday calender (which has been a  little bit delayed because of work on other projects, but it’s coming soon!)

May, so far.

2016 Mei - Cindy Mangomini

Finally a few sunny days and even the first pick nicks of 2016! Also very happy with my new Marc Johns book.

Wearing: t-shirt, Alternative Apparel – bracelet, A la – small purse, Solmode – cap & jeans, H&M – sandals, Birkenstock – straw bag, vintage.

Book: The Daily Artist by Marc Johns.

Spring favorites, so far.

Yes! The sunny part of spring has finally started in my city and I’ll be off to the park soon. But these have been my spring favorites for the more wintry part of the Dutch spring.

Wearing: boyfriend blazer, Newyorker – dress and tights, H&M – bracelet, Ala – bag, vintage – berry liptint, Maybelline –  nail polish, Catrice – shoes, Carmens.

Dreaming of Summer

2016 Dreaming of summer - Cindy Mangomini

I’m longing for summer and this is what I want to be wearing to a lovely picnic in the park. But, no such luck with the Dutch spring. It’s more wool sweaters, extra socks and staying inside to escape the rain, wind and even snow! Luckily, I can always draw a sunny scene!
