Hello 2019!

2019 mangomini januaryHappy New Year!! I love the new year because it means a fresh start full of new ideas, adventures, plans and goals. In 2019 I want to continue to live a more minimalistic life with less stuff and less waste. I want to stay creative and productive, learn some new skills, travel, read more books and stay healthy.  And I want to enjoy myself while doing all these things of course! What are your plans/ goals for the new year?

Hello December!

Mangomini hello december

Hello December! I can’t believe it’s already the last month of the year. If I’m honest it’s my least favourite month, but I’ve got a few nice things planned, including a small winter break, so who knows, I might love December this year.
PS. I still have a few calendars in my Etsy shop.

November favourites!

November is almost over, so time for an illustrated recap of what I wore most a.k.a. my November favourites. The last part of this month has been cold, so I’ve been keeping warm in some new (coat) but mostly old favourites.

Scandinavian winter

Scandinavian Winter-Lagom-Mangomini

This week’s illustration for Hello Giggles was inspired by the book Lagom by Linnea Dunne, about the secrets of the Swedish art of balanced living. “Lagom” doesn’t really translate, but means something like “not to0 little, not too much, just right”. I really loved reading this book full of nice tips and recipes, all in Scandinavian style (which I LOVE).

Happy 2018!

Freezing January

2017-freezing-january-cindy-mangomini

These last weeks have been so cold that I was slowly turning into a sheep! My vintage shearling jacket, boots and mittens were the only clothes warm enough to keep me from freezing. Not a lot of room for fashion when temperatures drop below zero (at least not for me). Luckily I was so busy with illustration jobs that I could spend a lot of time inside with my thermos filled with tea right beside me.

Wearing: shearling jacket, wool cardigan and mittens, Vintage – jeans and tights, H&M – hat, Newyorker – boots, so old I don’t remember – thermos, Mizu.

Reading: The signature of All Things – Elizabeth Gilbert

March, so far: cold & wet.
