Taming the Wild

dievca went with the Catherine Deneuve swept-back bob throughout the winter when she could control her hair.

Summer brings on NYC’s heat and humidity and the curls attached to dievca’s head start to spring out.

Master is pleased. He loves His dievca’s curls and D/s play has a way of making those curls explode with Joy.

That extra hair explosion is tough to control in a glamorous way and tucking dievca’s hair in a baseball cap doesn’t work with a bike helmet.

Thank goodness that hair accessories are making a HUGE comeback.

Now, dievca has used the lovely piece Master gave her for her birthday:

Lauren Landa Wisconsin Moonstone Hairpin

That hairpin is fabulous for an “earthy” look,
but dievca needs some contemporary options to present in.
Tort Hairware from the UK offers those interesting options:

Tort is your hair’s best friend. The item you reach for when you want to feel cute, need to make your day (or outfit) better, or hate everything in your wardrobe. Think of us as a jewellery box for your locks.

Long, short, afro, curly, weave, black, blonde, pink, grey: we don’t discriminate. Our clips have been tested on all hair types meaning there’s something for everyone.

Tort was founded in London by Mona Ghafoori in 2019 after demand from her friends for clips that both hold well, and look cool. The clips are named after powerful women in her life, from a septuagenarian style icon to a trendsetting two-year-old. Life’s too short to have boring hair.


For the Master or Mistress of BBQ

Master is heading over to a friend’s Brownstone to be the “Master of the BBQ”.
They are European and haven’t learned the fine art of grilling.
dievca heard some mumbling about the grill not being cleaned properly, etc.
she really wants to send over these naughty roasting sticks:

Let’s take a closer look:

There are “kid-friendly” and “transgender” options, too.

Or you can buy a Gay couple, a Lesbian couple, singles….

To support Gay Pride, yet

avoid the Dueling Parades….dievca will be heading to the beach on Sunday.

This year what will probably be the biggest queer celebration in New York City history will consist of dueling marches – the gigantic, official annual Pride march with all the celebratory floats, fueled by big business sponsors and a breakaway march designed to be a grassroots protest not only for the cause of civil rights but against the over-corporatization of the main parade.

That’s what dievca did when she found the Room & Board Baltic Bench:

This clever bench and coat rack is the result of a partnership between Room & Board and students at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) in an annual Design Scholar Competition. One of the winning designs, this piece features a wood seat with a small indentation to hold keys and other small objects (available on either the left or right side of the bench). The base and coat rack are made from powder-coated steel to round out the modern mix of materials.
