Hello Winter!

Today is the first day of winter (if you’re in the Northern hemisphere like me). Soon the days will start to get longer again, but until then I love candles and the pretty Christmas lights everywhere. I also love game nights with mulled wine, staying in and keeping warm with a hot water bottle, drinking tea and reading a book or having a Netflix night. I will try to go outside a lot to go ice skating for example, or have a nice winter walk, preferably in a snow covered landscape (followed by  more mulled wine of course 😉 )

Hello!

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 😉

PS. The book you see is The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho, one of my all time favourites.

More is more!

Here is another friend “portrait”. This time it’s my good friend Nadine, who is a real “more is more’ type of girl: very colorful, with big hair, a big heart and big personality! So of course, I had to draw her style.🌼



Enjoying spring!

I finally had a bit of free time to enjoy the sunny spring weather this week, with long hikes, picnics in the park and a lot of white wine 😉 I hope you are also having a good week!⁣

When life gives you lemons..

2019 favourites Mangomini

When life gives you lemons, you better find a good way to use those lemons! Like in your illustrations or in a nice cocktail (or both!) These are some of my 2019 favourites, so far.

Things I Like

Favorite things right now Mangomini

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.
