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.

Clothing break down;
  • Jacket from Zara
  • Scarf from New Yorker
  • Bag from Modalu London

  1. Wow I love your country.
    But Simone, why don't you speak also about the themes that you treated in Epica music in your blog? It could be an intelligent way to raise awareness of all those who follow you, on these important issues.

    And then ... we want to back the young rebel Simone! Less classy, more rebel sexy! ;)

  2. Secret acoustic show sounds fun! I don't like Jagermeister for some reason but maybe I should try it again or try it somehwere else.
    Love your style [nothing new actually] and your tea drinking facial expression :P
    This cafe looks warm and cozy *-*

  3. I want to go to Amsterdam to shopping jejeje and to see every lovely place

    I drank jager three month ago and I don´t like V_V to strong- bitter, I don´t have idea if you can mix the drink XDDD I can try again jajaja, I prefer Tequila or sake :S

  4. so cute Simone!!I would like to go to Amsterdam someday!!

  5. Simone was always a sophisticated beauty, but when she was younger she was also more "aggressive style" and fun.
    I love she.
    Like I love jagermeister.

  6. Amsterdan look beauty and interesting!
    Really all the countries are interesting, my méxico is pretty and big, is sad that I don't know all my great Country.

  15. I love Simone's style! And this is who she is, you can't ask her to be someone else. This is her personal life and the side she chooses to be, while she obviously channels her metal side into her music. Everyone needs to balance their personalities, instead of being dark and aggressive all the time.

  16. ahhhh I love Amsterdam is the perfect place to live in harmony <33.. I really love your pictures jiji Oliver seems relaxing and happy that's good well have a lovely day tomorrow with the international press ... good luck
