February Favourites

What I Wore, In Drawings

Because it’s #meetthemaker month here is another entry for my hand drawn illustrated fashion diary, where I draw my personal fashion, food and overall favourites.

It was hard to sum up my February favourites in one drawing because we went from freezing cold and snow, to super sunny spring weather, back to freezing cold again the whole month. I’m not complaining because I loved the snow and I definitely enjoyed the first warm days. Kayak season is open! Picnic season as well, although that’s open all year for me. I also did a few more cold water dips in the river, Wim Hof style, and plan to do many more.

For this illustration I chose my “in between weather” favourites: Levi’s ribcage jeans, a cute bohemian shirt and my Ugg boots, that are perfect for quickly getting my feet warm after being in the cold water. Plus one of my favourite vintage bags and my favourite face mask.

I could also have included my mittens, beanie hat, bikini and sandals, because I also wore all of those several times last month. You might see them in a March recap. 😉

As you can tell, despite the lockdown and evening clock, I had a lot of fun in nature. In, on and near the water and picnicking and hiking. I hope March will bring more of the same.

Wishing you a happy & healthy month as well!⁠💚

Hey June!

It’s June, and a new month still means a new calendar page. With so many horrible things happening at the moment I feel almost silly posting my happy drawings. But here it is anyway. I wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy month. Take care! 💚

Hello Summer!

Happy first day of summer and enjoy the longest day of the year! I will try to recreate my own drawing tonight, inspired by the Scandinavian Midsummer celebrations. My bread needs to be French though, sorry knäckebröd! 😉

Hello June!

2019 Hello June Mangomini

Can you believe it’s June already? A new month means it’s time for a new calendar page. This is the ‘June’ page from my 2019 calendar. I hope this month will be filled with lots of sunny picnic days, just like I drew here 😉

Last days of summer.

I’m enjoying these last days of summer 2017 as much as I can. But I’m also already kind of looking forward to autumn, because I have been working on several autumn-themed illustrations over the past few weeks. Also, my new birthday calendar will be available this week and I’m working hard to get my 2018 calendar out by the end of September.

Perfect picnic weather!
