November Faves So Far, In Drawings.

 

Things To Enjoy In November, If You Ask Me.

My November favourites, so far. The weather has been so nice here. I’m going on regular hikes with lovely sunny picnic breaks. I’m also enjoying chestnut picking (very relaxing!) and chestnut eating. I hope you are also enjoying your autumn. Take care!💚

Stay Cool! (And Calm)

Expectations vs Reality: French Holiday Style.

French Holiday Style And Adventures! In Drawings, Of Course.

Above an illustrated recap of my recent trip to Northern France. Below you can see the (very stylish and sunny) picture I had in my mind before going. Here now, is the more realistic “after” version. The weather was pretty bad (no bikini needed) and the trip certainly had some challenges (including being stranded hours away from our apartment at night, and no taxi willing to pick us up) but the bread, wine and cheeses were so delicious it made up for a lot and almost made us forget about the rain!⁠

Expectations:

Above you can see how I envisioned my French Holiday style. In reality no bikini or aftersun was needed. Raincoat instead.

More Expectations:

We hand planned to be in the water a lot and to try Stand Up Paddling.  In reality: zero time spend in the sea because of the bad weather.

Throwback August Style

This is the illustration for the August page on my birthday calendar.  It’s an older one but still pretty close to my IRL beach/picnic look today.

 

Summer Plans

The last 2 months have been so busy that I almost forgot to make summer plans! Most days I happily spend behind my drawing desk. I also don’t have much new clothes to draw because I’m still trying to buy less and only what I really, REALLY love, preferably vintage, like some of the “old” favorites on here. If I buy something new, I have to get rid of 2 similar items, which is not always easy, but still makes me feel good about minimizing my stuff. I did get some new art supplies, which always makes me very happy! ☺️

Stay cool!

Trying to stay cool and productive during this heatwave is a real challenge! These are some of my “heatproof” favorites at the moment.

Embracing Neutrals

2019 neutrals Mangomini

I’m not much of a trend follower but I am totally embracing the neutral colour trend at the moment (yes, leopard print is a neutral!) Any trend that makes beige seem fresh and not boring is impressive, if you ask me ;)⁣
I’m also still reading ánd working on my own little Happiness Project and my 19 goals for 2019, yay!⁣

Adventure Chicken Holiday Style, Illustrated.

My Solo Hiking Trip To The Canary Islands.

This is the illustrated recap of my recent solo trip to Gran Canaria. I took a small break from winter and visited the beautiful and sunny island of Gran Canaria. As you can tell from this drawing I enjoyed nature, the food and the lovely weather. I was so happy to be back in shorts and sandals. I also had some great “accidental” adventures (hence the #adventurechicken), met a lot of lovely people, slept on a beach under the stars, started a mini book club and drank quite a bit of Sangria. It was quite perfect! For now it’s back to work, but I can’t wait to go back to the beautiful Canary Islands!

Ps. The mini book club had 2 members who were both reading Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman at the same time; A perfect holiday read, I enjoyed it very much!
