A Good Cause

Hello to all loyal Epica fans,

October is the month of Breast Cancer Awareness. I wanted to make my contribution, because it is important to keep on fighting cancer and keep those wonderful female assets intact. 

I hereby want to auction off this kind of iconic top that I wore during the early days of Epica. The money will be donated to Pink Ribbon.

When you place your bid please keep in mind that they money goes to a good cause. I thank you for all your loyalty and support throughout the years and hope that you are willing to help me raise a lot of money.

Here is the link to the beautiful butterfly top which is waiting for you on Ebay: Simone's Style.

Shooting At Home

Here is a little, tiny- whiny preview of my make up from the second photo shoot that I had with Heile.

He came to my house since we live pretty close to each other now. Like always, we had a good time and came up with some great images. I can't wait to see the end result!

Black kisses,
The camera focused on Heile since he is definitely the more beautiful person in the room ;)

New York Blisters

Hello lovelies,

During my stay in the States with Kamelot, I spend one day with Elise in New York.

We took the bus from Secaucus into NY which was only 6 dollars for a round trip! 30 Minutes later we were in the center and ready to walk for hours to come.

Stupid me wore ballerina shoes, which are not the best for lots of walking.

I had to go to the Sephora on Times Square and Elise had to find some shoes. Sephora and me spend 3 hours together. My wallet asked for a divorce. I ended up buying only one item and that was a eyeshadow palette from Stila. I didn't make too many pictures because I only had my Nikkor 50 mm lense. Another mistake and bad preparation for New York. My bad. It is an amazing lens, though.

Enjoy the larger pictures! 

Taken with a Nikon 50 mm lens. Hard to make duo portraits when holding the camera yourself ;)
Can you find us?

Circadian Rhythms

Hi guys,

Circa what?

Since one week today I've returned home from the Kamelot tour through the USA and Canada. In my career I've experienced very little jet lags, but this time I got it bad. We arrived in Germany at 9 am, which was 3 am for us in America. Time to go to bed and not to start a new day. I slept 3 hours in the plane and felt somewhat refreshed.

Unfortunately it took me a long time to get back in to European time. Waking up at 3 am in the morning, even though I went to sleep at 22.00 is quite unpleasant. Imagine that 3 nights in a row and add up two sleepless nights before that. I was once again Smoon Zombie. I've tried to fall asleep again and waited many hours, counted millions of sea horses ( I prefer those to sheep), but I was wide awake and deeply frustrated, which also doesn't help you to fall back asleep again.

The weather is amazing, but also confusing. The leaves are turning red and falling down, but the temperature feels more like we're in the middle of summer. The only thing autumn like is my mind which is still foggy from the jet lag.

Speaking about sleeping, it is time for me to go to bed!

Sleep well,
