Forever Kissing

Good morning!

Here's a new post of my 'Best of' series and it concerns lip balm. Next up will be Tinted Lip Balm.

Winter time isn't particularly nice for our lips. Some people suffer from severely chapped lips. I myself can't live without a good lip balm. I'm always on the look out for the perfect formula that feels great, tastes and smells good.

Yesterday I split my lip for the very first time. I was too rough with rubbing my foundation off with a dry tissue. Luckily I have found the best lip balm for me. It is a lip balm from 'Forever Living', called Aloe Lips. Here is the link to the Dutch version; Forever Living Dutch

It was a present from Elise and I am forever grateful to her. The formula is just perfect, the scent is not to strong. It leaves my lips smooth, soft and shiny and even boyfriends/girlfriends will love this. You'll be forever kissable when you use this product. My split lip healed in no time, thanks to the healing power of Aloe.

Aloe Kisses,

I wish you an Epic Christmas

Good morning!

Smoonie Claus is coming to town!

Christmas is finally here and I'm really excited! I get to see my whole family again, sit at the fire place and give away presents. Cozy times!

I hope that all of you are going to have a great time and that we will see each other again in 2012.

I will post some more from now on. The last couple of months where very hectic and left not much time for blogging. Our 5th CD 'Requiem for the Indifferent' is finally finished and will hit the stores on March 9th.

Until then we will have two shows in the Netherlands on the 12th and 13th of January, where we will play one new song. I've put together a video message from Epica for all of you; EpiChristmas

Stay healthy and happy!

Hello BB's,

Last Thursday Epica had a secret acoustic show at the Backstage hotel in Amsterdam. We were there to celebrate their unique Jagermeister room (202) which was designed by Mardien Vink. She is the very first fan to get my autograph tattooed. We played three Epica songs, drank some Jagermeister, ate bitter ballen and went to bed.

On the next day Oliver and me did some sightseeing and shopping in Amsterdam. I had to get my haring from Frens (always go there) and had a tea at one of the beautiful cafe's.
