April Favourites, Illustrated.

2021 04 April favorite things Mangomini

Things I Enjoyed Most In April, In Drawings.

Since it’s already the last day of April, it’s a good time for a look at some of my favorite things this month.  I did a lot of hiking & picnicking, had a sunny kayak adventure and added lots of new little plants to my growing collection. This whole outfit is from Monki. The pants took such a long time to draw, but I do love them so it had to be done 😉 I also love that the t-shirt and tote bag are made from organic cotton and the packaging was completely plastic-free.  

Other things that I still loved this month, but already included in my March favorites, are Ben Howard’s new album and live stream concert and cold water swimming.

Little Things That Make Me Happy

Finding Joy In The Little Things In Life, In March.

Time for my March favorites! This is a drawing of all the little things that were making me happy in March. Nothing made me happier last month (or this month!) than new music from Ben Howard! In fact, in less than 2 hours I’ll be watching his live stream concert so please do not disturb around that time.😬
Other things that I loved about March included my regular cold water dips in the river, a lot of picnicking (plus a lot @mr.moonen_wijnhandel wine) and, of course, my plants!⁠🌱
I hope you also had a good month and are having a happy & healthy April so far! Have a lovely day! ⁠💚

Little Things That Make Me Happy

Finding Joy In The Little Things, In Drawings.

Just a cute little drawing of a few small things that make me happy. I could just have easily gone for “Big things that make me very sad and worried” at the moment, but I chose not to do that. Have a good and safe day! ⁠💚

Hello!

Meet The Maker: A Little Bit About Me.

Today is World Hello Day and I though this would be a good day for me to say hello, and tell you a little bit about myself for those of you who are new here. In the form of an illustration, of course 😉  The book you see is The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho, one of my all time favourites.

It’s The Little Things In Life..

Favorite things right now Mangomini

Small Things That Are Making Me Happy, In Drawings Of Course.

A quick sketch of some of my favourite things right now. I’m trying to shop less but better. So less impulse buys and more things that I can enjoy for a long time. I’m also looking forward to 2 more Ben Howard concerts. Money spend on experiences is always money well spend, especially if it’s Ben Howard (in my opinion anyway!) While working from home I like to listen to podcasts to keep me company and informed. I recently discovered By the book and I’ve been binge-listening ever since.

PS. Nothing on here is sponsored, just things that I really like.
