Spring Style (I Wish!)

2017 mei update Mangomini

May calender page from 2 years ago, slightly updated, but I still like this look (and still wear/use most of these things).⁣ Unfortunately, the Dutch weather today is not suited for anything on here, except maybe an indoor picnic.

PS. The birthday calendar where this page is from is available in my Etsy Shop.

Happy King’s Day!

Nederland Mangomini low

Happy King’s day! Today we Dutchies celebrate our King’s birthday. That means: celebrating all day, preferably outside, and everything (including ourselves) in orange!
This is my “Nederland” postcard, with typical Dutch things on it. We may be a small country but there’s still a lot to love here and it’s usually very ‘gezellig’, especially on a day like today!

For my non-Dutch followers, some of the typical Dutch foods on here are (from top to bottom): hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles to eat on your bread, usually for breakfast), stroopwafel (waffle filled with caramel syrup), patatje met (French fries with mayonnaise), tompoes (a very sweet pastry) and drop (salty liquorice).

Card available in my Etsy shop, here.
