Atlanta/Latin America Blog I

A very good day to all you sweets!

I'm sorry that I haven't blogged since a while. During these weeks we have been flying a lot and didn't have so much sleep. The bad internet connections and my cold prevented me from blogging. Luckily I kicked my cold in the butt am leaving it behind in Bogota, Colombia.

So far we've headlined on Progpower USA in Atlanta, which was awesome. It was a really late show and I was fighting my jet leg before the show. I was almost falling asleep while putting on my make up.

Seeing the pictures from the show, I saw that I didn't put any eyeliner on my mouth luckily. Years of practice have made me 'zombie state of mind- putting on make up- proof.

After Atlanta we flew to El Salvador (San Salvador), Guatemala City (Guatemala), San Jose (Costa Rica) Medellin and Bogota (Colombia). All of these shows were mind blowing. It is always such an experience to play in these countries. The people, the climate and the amazing food always gets us high.

The fans are spoiling us with presents and beautiful artwork. You are all very creative! I love that and support art. Thank you for that!

The countries which are still ahead are Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay and Mexico. My passport will be filled with all the colorful stamps of these countries.

Here are some pictures from the last weeks.

A Starbucks is always necessary when you're in the States. Didn't really like the one I chose. Next time I go for my Earl Grey tea with milk. I do love those pink cake pops/pop cakes. So delicious! My new addiction.
I always feel like a tiny ant when I'm surrounded by tall buildings.
Medellin, Colombia.
Bogota, Colombia.
Please check out the Epica Facebook to see if you ended up on our profile. We upload pictures of our shows with you guys!

I advise all of you that plan to come see our upcoming shows to practice your head banging skills. We pick one winner to come head bang with us on stage during on of our songs!

Blackwood Forest and Bodensee

Hi Sweets,

Here are some pictures of my three day holiday at the Bodensee and the Blackwood Forest, as promised. It was a short holiday but long enough to gain new wonderful memories.

I love to go on a holiday within Germany. The Bodensee is my favorite place to be until now. We live quite close and can decide spontaneously if we want to go. I like the combination of a little bit of laziness combined with action. I am not the person to lie at the beach 2 weeks straight. Because both of us already travel so much we like to take mini holidays close to home.

We rented bikes and drove around the Bodensee for 4 hours and ate Kätzle (my favorite Schwäbisch Food).

When we were at the Blackwood Forest, we were taking several walks through the mountains and had a great food at the restaurant.

As you can see all I need is fresh air, the forest and the lake, some action and good food.

Enjoy the photos!
Well, hello there Bodensee Duckies!

Two Years of Smoon'Style

Hello Sweets,

Two years have passed since I've written my very first blog post. In these two years I've shown you my other passions besides EPICA and have gotten so much positive feedback from you. Even some guys came up to me at concerts telling me that they read my blog. At our concert at the German Summerbreeze festival I've had a video interview about my blog with EMP Rockinvasion.

I'd like to thank you all for all the support I've received these last two years and am looking forward to more blogging in the future!

I also have a question for you; what kind of posts do you enjoy the most? What would you like to see in the future?

Here's a little teaser from my 'Blitz' holiday at the Bodensee and Schwarzwald. More pictures coming soon.


The winners of the Latin American 'Epic Contest'

Hello Sweets,

First of all I have to say that I was overwhelmed with all the entries that you girls made! There were over a 100 entries! There must have been a lot of make up brushes flying through the air.

All of you are beautiful and did a wonderful job! It was again hard to choose only three winners, but after looking several times at all the pictures I got three winners!

Here they are;

Daniele Mendes

Thaís Leão

Laís Costa

Congratulations Daniele, Thaís and Laís!

Please write an email to to which concert you'd like to come. You'll get two tickets to your show of choice and will have a meet and greet with me backstage!
