I have a new tea-themed post up on Hello Giggles, just in time for International Tea Day (December 15th, in case you forgot). You can see the post here and I have signed prints available here.

November favorites, so far.

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 😉

Alexa Chung Style (Updated!)

How To Dress Like Alexa Chung, Part 2

Exactly three years ago I made an illustrated how-to for Hello Giggles on how to dress like Alexa Chung. When Alexa herself reposted it on her Instagram things went a little bit crazy in my inbox for a while, in a good way! (thank you Alexa!) It’s still one of my most popular illustrations online. So now I thought it was time for an updated version just in time for Alexa’s birthday on November 5th.(Happy Birthday!)

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

Listening to: The Lumineers and Kings of Leon

Happy Birthday to my Birthday Calendar! It’s finally finished, yay! The calendar consists of 12 pages with full color illustrations on each page. Plus a clip to hang it someplace nice, so you never have to miss an important date again.

I have the calendars available in my Etsy shop as of today. I think they will make lovely Christmas gifts so don’t wait too long if you want to have it in time for the Holidays.

Dutch Summer

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.
