I'll take you to the candy shop

Hello folk,

Wanted to share this picture with you. When Sjakie (Isaac), Linda and me were walking through Stockholm, we came across this wonderful candy shop. What caught my attention was the huge lollipop!

It's the biggest I've ever seen! I wonder how long it will take until you have finished it, and how many teeth you have to sacrifice... I didn't buy anything because I got a lot of candy from two sweet Finnish girls that will last me the whole tour :)

Check out the size of that lollipop! Photo was taken in Stockholm by Sjakie

Here are some pics from our first days while being on tour:

This is Arie, me and Gabriella (our love boat).

I would like to thank Gabriella for their lovely service. I forgot my iPod in my cabin and with some help of the crew from 'Nosturi', I got it back again. Thank you!

Couldn't resist. I had to take a photo when I saw this. I know, not very ladylike.
Here is the Dutch 'United Buddy Bear'.

While doing some sightseeing with my Finnish friend, I saw this buddy and had to take a picture with him.

There was a Ray Ban bus standing in front of the venue. Had to take a picture with that one too :)
A little photo shoot with 'Sjakie'.

That'll be all for now folks :)

Here's a photo of Oliver which I have taken a couple of days ago for the Sons of Seasons photoshoot that I did with Heather (Rock Ignition). Hope you like it!

Oli makes a great model.

Little Boots

This is a photo which I came across in a 'Airplane Magazine' during out flight to Russia.

Looking at this picture makes Autumn look cozy. I do have a pair of rain boots, but not as fancy as this little piggy :) If I find red boots like these, I will take them home with me.

I own red lipsticks, which fit to every season: 

This one is from L'Oréal Paris; Indefectible Lip Duo in 501 (Invincible Red) and is supposed to stay on for 16 hours. The color is great, but it only lasts for about 3 hours (including eating strawberry cake). I don't like the feeling of it at all. It dries out my lips and it is not comfortable to wear. During the first hour it was ok, but when the gloss wears off, and you have to put it on again, you don't get the same effect as you got from the start. I applied it correctly, but it doesn't work for me. Too bad I have a second one lying around.... (402 Endless Peach, which I will still try out). I will definitely try it again, but my first impression is that I am very disappointed. For a gig it could work, but not for a full (16h) day.

Now, I'm off to watch 'Tatort'.

Simone says 'Spasiba' and Ačiū!

Last weekend was our first visit to Russia and Lithuania. We were flying via Dusseldorf airport and this is the first picture that I took:

It's my current desktop picture. It makes me smile.

We had a great time in St. Petersburg, Moscow and Kaunas. We tried, whenever we could, to do some sightseeing. Mark and I were running around in St. Petersburg.  It was really sunny and incredibly hot. Silly me forgot my Ray Ban's in the hotel room...

Here's some proof of our little sightseeing tour:

Here's a little 'Make Up Madness' before our show

I bought MAC's 'Club' eyeshadow and loved it! Too bad I lost it in Moscow :( I'll have to get a new one and love it even more ;)

After our show in Moscow, we were taken to the 'Red Sqaure', and of course took some pictures as well:

Our shows were ones to remember. The Russian fans welcomed us with open arms. We received many gifts! Spasiba Russia!

Our next trip was to Lithuania, but the battery of my camera died when we were taking pictures of the Red Square.... and I forgot to take my charger.... (This is what happens when you have to wake up early, after almost no sleep). You tend to forget things...

I was forced to make pictures with my phone, but haven't had time to upload those.

Some of you, who might follow me on Twitter, have read that I loved my hotel room in Kaunas and that we all fell in love with the city. The show was a sweaty one, but we gave our all and had a blast! Ačiū Kaunas!

We'll be back!

Russian Mood

Tomorrow will be the first time for me to set foot on Russian ground. I am so excited and curious to find out what it is like in Russia.

I have some Russian friends. They all wanted to come with me when I told them that I was going to Russia.

Funny fact is that the nail polish I put on today from OPI is called; 'Midnight in Moscow', which was pure coincidence. It's one of my top 10 nail polishes and it is lovely for this time of year.

Here you see one of my most beloved tea flavors: 'Russian Earl Grey' by Lipton. I drink at least one a day. They also have many other great flavors, but Earl Grey has been my favorite ever since I can remember.

At the moment I am reading this book by Tim Burton. I'd like to 'read' the first story to you;

'Stick Boy and Match Girl in Love

Stick Boy liked Match Girl
he liked her a lot.
He liked her cute figure,
he thought she was hot.
But could a flame ever burn
for a match and a stick?
It did quite literally;
he burned up pretty quick.

Thanks to Nina for this lovely birthday gift! Until next time!

Since a while I've been searching for a good pair of 'tour shoes'. They have to be flat, comfy and black. Last Wednesday I finally found the right shoes for me:

Today I was walking in them for a while, and I must say that for only 20 euros, they are a good buy! You can find them at 'Deichmann'.


'Fly To The Moon'

After many long years of loyal service, my favorite leather pants has given up on me.

During our show yesterday in Hilversum, I discovered that the fly of my leather pants was wide open.
In between songs, I went to the side of the stage and discovered a rather disappointing sight.

I have no clue for how long I was air conditioned down there. Nobody in the audience gave me a sign! It might have been only for 2 minutes, but could have been the whole show until the moment where I discovered my wardrobe malfunction.

I'm not quite sure if my leather pants are to blame for this, or that it was a combination of my corset pushing on the zipper during the show, while I was showing everybody my incredible dance moves....

Apologies for causing any commotion.

Welcome to all the readers of my blog!

On this blog I will show all about my hobbies besides singing. You can expect everything here; photographs from my beloved Nikon, Canon, fashion, beauty and food.
