dievca’s self-care goodies while Master is traveling.
Remember that dievca told you that her back will always be a work-in-progress?
Working from home was taking its toll.
Until the ergoErgo seat arrived at her doorstep. In ORANGE.
Active sitting has strengthened her core and worked on her back flexibility.
dievca’s back is moving pretty freely these days.
There are three sizes: Regular, Extra and Kids

Purple People Eater, Barney, Violet Beauregarde
The meaning of the color Purple”
Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. The color purple is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition. Purple also represents meanings of wealth, extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic.
Do you want all that represented during BDSM?
If she can get there she would like to take this Clare V. Denim Tote:
dievca regrets to tell you that she no longer looks like Ava — more like this sunbather:
2: an initial and often tentative attempt to do something in a new or different field or area of activity,
A brief excursion or attempt especially outside one’s accustomed sphere.
dievca decided to look like a human rather than a slouch when making a foray to the Eastside. she figured out a way to beat the heat, too:
When dievca lived in Europe she stopped to see friends who were packing to move to Switzerland. The wife, who was Irish, offered dievca a glass of wine and was about to pour it into a plastic cup – they were packing to move. The husband, who was French, went meltdown and dug through the kitchen boxes to find the proper wine glasses. Ever since then, dievca has tried to offer the proper glass for a specific drink type. she won’t drink out of the can. But, on the other hand, she has broken beer and wine glasses on the rooftop. It is a mess.
Having a wine outside by the pool or on the rooftop may be the Highlight of this COVID-19 Summer.
Meeting friends for a 2-meter spacing dinner in a park calls for easy to carry, easy to eat food and accouterments.
Breaking a wine glass and having to clean it up – would just add to the 6 feet spacing stress.
dievca found some silicone wine glasses at Walmart.com, $11.99 for four. she bought Master a set, too.
Unbreakable Outdoor Rubber Wine Cups: 14 oz, Clear Silicone. 100% Dishwasher Safe, Shatterproof, can for easy carrying or storage. Solid grip, stable on the table. Replaces the one-use plastic.
she does wonder what Marius would say about the silicone….
Party on! Safely. XO
A little morning coffee to get the neurons firing….
A little Math to get the neurons firing…
Do you own an apron? Do you use it while BBQ-ing or baking?
dievca has never owned one. she’s not sure of what she is missing Her friends have laughed at her and asked what she does for dinner parties.
she cooks, changes, and hopes for the best afterward.
What about an Apron as a D/s Presentation Outfit?
Hmm, could be interesting but one might need to be careful when sitting or leaning against the countertop.
dievca found the apron she wants:
The RE/DONE | Levi’s Denim Apron is created from scraps of vintage Levi’s, reducing production waste and creating functional, machine washable, and collectible kitchen-wear. Each apron is upcycled using a waterless process from unique vintage materials and is completely one-of-a-kind.
The shades of indigo will differ from the product image due to each item being one-of-a-kind. Twenty percent of sales will be donated to the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation. RE/done
Years ago, dievca picked up this Kōzi Neck & Shoulder Wrap in TJMaxx on clearance for $12. It sat in its box for a year or more until dievca realized that heat really helps her aches and pains. Ever since that moment – its been in heavy rotation.
The wrap is handcrafted using natural herbs and grains to relieve stress, tension, cramps, and muscle discomfort. You can microwave (2 minutes) or freeze for instant therapy. dievca has ice packs, so she hasn’t frozen the wrap.
$50.95 + shipping seems to be a really high price for the wrap – so dievca found it elsewhere for a better price – if you are not choosy about color: Click here for chocolate, lavender or plum at $16.43 +shipping.
There are other shapes available, but this one hugs the neck and upper back nicely – then you can wrap it around a calf, knee /hamstring or sit on it for lower back or glute issues. dievca wouldn’t go for another shape. she doesn’t have the room for multiple pieces.
It’s been really great on text neck/computer neck. And a good option for Aftercare.
cryotherapy and thermotherapy
Ice is for injuries — calming down damaged superficial tissues that are inflamed, red, hot, and swollen. The inflammatory process is a healthy, normal, natural process that happens to be painful and more biologically stubborn than it needs to be. Icing is a drugless way of dulling the pain of inflammation and taking swelling down a bit. Examples of use: a freshly pulled muscle or a sprained ankle.
Heat is for muscles, chronic pain, and stress — taking the edge off symptoms like muscle aching and stiffness, which have many causes including overuse and arthritis. Chronic pain, especially back pain, often involves lots of tension, anxiety, hypervigilance, and central sensitization. Comfortable heat can soothe a jangled mind and nervous system.
Heat therapy is an effective remedy for back pain because it boosts circulation, which then allows nutrients and oxygen to travel to joints and muscles. This circulation helps repair damaged muscles, relieves inflammation, and improves back stiffness. Any type of heat therapy can help relieve back pain.
The phrase ‘there is no rose without thorns‘ means that in order to enjoy something that is beautiful and pleasurable, you must endure something that is difficult or painful.
Are you drinking too much coffee? Wine? Gin & Tonics? more Wine?
Keeping water cool in the refrigerator and easily available on the tabletop during meals helps you drink more water.
Or maybe you need that water carafe bedside + aspirin after you drank a bit much…
dievca is using both and trying to go easier on the coffee🍮 and vino🍷. XO
But the list is short.
Definition 1 of Unicorn related to the BDSM Lifestyle:
There’s a term nearly everybody in the Swinger world, the BDSM world, and the Polyamorous world is familiar with, summarized in one neat, pretty, sparkly mental image of one word: Unicorn. On the surface it’s a simple term, relating to the mythical creature of lore that is rumored to exist but is nearly impossible to find. Furthermore, once found, it’s nearly impossible to keep, for, after all, nobody can really own a unicorn. (credit absinthepassion.wordpress.com )
Colloquial; Synonym for hot or Bi babe or HBB, often derogatory, condescending, or ironic. A bisexual person usually though not always female, who is willing to join an existing couple, often with the presumption that this person will date and become sexually involved with both members of that couple, and not demand anything or do anything which might cause problems or inconvenience to that couple.
The term is often used to be dismissive of a couple seen to be only superficially polyamorous. Because of the demands that this type of couple places on the woman (that she be single and not take on any additional partners, and become involved with both members of the couple equally, and often “complete” their family as a surrogate mother and housekeeper and/or breadwinner and not do anything that may threaten or disrupt the existing couple), many in the poly community call this type of woman a ‘Unicorn’, as in mythical and not likely to be found, even though there are plenty of bi-poly women around.
Sometimes the unicorn is expected to not develop any emotional attachment and is strictly there for a sexual relationship (equally distributed to both members of the dyad) and/or is prescripted as a secondary. This term is used as a reminder that bi-poly women are people with their own desires, needs, and pre-existing lives, and not fantasy figures or pets.

Rolling the foot with a ball is an exercise you can complete on your own as a way to massage and stretch the bottom of the foot and the plantar fascia making it much less likely to become irritated. A ball can help to improve flexibility and range of motion of the ankle.
The type of ball to be used is open — what do you have at home? A softer ball is easier to start with and you can work your way up to a lacrosse ball or a golf ball.
Put enough pressure on the ball to get a deep massage. You may feel some soreness, back off if you feel any pain.
Try it… Sole Searching
Remember the ball loosens up stiffness in your sole’s muscles, joints, and connective tissues.
How to do it:
1. Circle the ball under your heel with some pressure.
2. Slowly roll your foot from heel to toe through the middle of the foot. Repeat for 1 to 2 minutes.
3. Roll the ball side to side so the ball crosses your arch. for 1 to 2 minutes.
4. Curve your toes around the ball to open up the phalanges and metatarsals. Help with your other foot if needed.
Repeat with your other foot.
dievca didn’t follow the matching vision from Slovakia….
she just bought a black mask for Master and the checkered for herself:
Maybe she’ll collect her sewing machine at her Mother’s and start color coordinating.
This Protective Mask is made of 2 layers of 100% cotton, easily adapts to different sizes with adjustable straps, and features an integrated metal nose-piece to ensure a snug fit. Each mask comes with a multi-layer PM2.5 Filter featuring 2 layers of Meltblown Filter and 1 layer of Carbon Activated Fabric. Filters should be replaced every 7 days.
You can buy a 5 pack of the filters, designed to effectively block airborne contaminants.
Fits adults and kids ages 5 and up.
dievca also bought some simple spare masks from Nili Lotan:
dievca took herself out of her Mother’s house to avoid — well, let’s just say she had to kill three hours. Masked and gloved she got gas, ran to CVS (pharmacy), and wandered Wal-Mart.
Her sister-in-law is disdainful about purchasing anything from Wal-Mart, but dievca rolls with it. she was able to get some lovely “grateful” cards to use as “Thank You” notes for people who acknowledged her Dad’s passing. Much sweeter and happier than the regular notes.
she was also able to get something stylish, eco-friendly, inexpensive, and of use.
The cotton tote is simple, roomy, 100% cotton, made in California, and other shopping bags offered are made from recycled bottles (PET). All the styles can be found on Amazon:

Just sayin’ – dievca never got her gloves 4 years ago…
Love is always a leap into the unknown. You can try to control as many variables, and understand a situation as you can, but you’re still jumping off a cliff and hoping that someone catches you. ~Lisa Kleypas
Women Propose to Their Men
According to an old Irish legend, or possibly history, St Brigid struck a deal with St Patrick to allow women to propose to men – and not just the other way around – every four years.
This is believed to have been introduced to balance the traditional roles of men and women in a similar way to how leap day balances the calendar.
Gloves Hide Naked Ring Finger
In some places, leap day has been known as “Bachelors’ Day” for the same reason. A man was expected to pay a penalty, such as a gown or money, if he refused a marriage proposal from a woman on Leap Day.
In many European countries, especially in the upper classes of society, tradition dictates that any man who refuses a woman’s proposal on February 29 has to buy her 12 pairs of gloves. The intention is that the woman can wear the gloves to hide the embarrassment of not having an engagement ring. During the middle ages there were laws governing this tradition.
Ines Glove Company
Founded in 1999 and based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
The story starts when Ines longed for the elegance of the 1950’s,
read more about the beginning of Ines Gloves company.
In case vs. Incase:
Incase refers to being enclosed within. Like “Incase that ring finger in a glove”.
Also spelt encase.
Where as in case refers to doing something ‘in the event of’ or ‘as a precaution’. eg “you better have those 12 pairs of gloves around, just in case”
Do you remember being a kid with dirty glasses?
Then she smartened up in High School and started using dish soap to wash her eyeglasses.
Finding a sink and soap is not very convenient on the fly – so dievca moved on to lens wipes.
Too bad they aren’t environmentally friendly…
- one use
Something of use that lessens the environmental impact, isn’t as messy as soap/water, can be carried in a bag and offers the cleanest vision dievca has found:
Wal-Mart’s Equate Lens Cleaner at $2.88.
This brand is dievca’s favorite. The solution is good for glasses, camera lenses, phone screens/lenses, computer screens, etc. – all at an excellent price.
An 8 oz. bottle lasted dievca about a year with a clean rag/towel doing the wiping.
Argh – dievca is out~
dievca will have to make a trip to New Jersey to visit a Wal-Mart…there’s none in Manhattan.
fluffball. Noun. (plural fluffballs)
- A ball of fluff, or a creature that resembles one.
- Soft things like animals that are cute and /or fun to pet.
- Someone who is or acts like they have their head in the sky.
- Someone who purports to have technical experience in their chosen field, but lacks a fundamental understanding of concepts beyond anything that isn’t the buzzword of the month.
The object attached to her keys so she can find them in her dark backpack interior by feel. dievca’s is real fur. Others. which are faux fur, are easily available.
Note: dievca didn’t realize how much she depends on her sense of touch for the keychain until she gave her 4-year-old messy one to the puppy adoption place along with old towels.
Faux fur options (click photo to purchase, more colors available):
The Norma Kamali Sequin underwire top and bottoms are exclusive to Net-A-Porter and are something to dream about~ Can you see the suit poolside in Miami, FL?
dievca has a little over a month to work on her poolside presentation. The best full-body workout that will be easy on a torn hamstring/calf and back is swimming. Reality is that dievca will be wearing Stella McCartney for Adidas and Speedo. Let’s hope she can be disciplined for Master and her training.
dievca found a Tenga Iroha Vibrator she bought and forgot about….
After digging it out, she decided to use it in a moment of self-care. It seems like it may be a good vibrator to use on a partner. The soft tip hit dievca’s clit nicely and the head can be inserted into the vaginal opening (possibly the anal opening, too). Clean up was easy.
dievca sent Master this photo:
she received a reply:
Ha! This looks like a fictional creature in a long-gone comic strip called
The shmoo (plural: shmoos, also shmoon) is a fictional cartoon creature created by Al Capp (1909–1979); the character first appeared in the comic strip Li’l Abner on August 31, 1948.
A shmoo is shaped like a plump bowling pin with stubby legs. It has smooth skin, eyebrows, and sparse whiskers—but no arms, nose, or ears. Its feet are short and round, but dexterous, as the shmoo’s comic book adventures make clear. It has a rich gamut of facial expressions and often expresses love by exuding hearts over its head. Cartoonist Al Capp ascribed to the shmoo the following curious characteristics:
- They reproduce asexually and are incredibly prolific, multiplying faster than rabbits.
- They require no sustenance other than air.
- Shmoos are delicious to eat and are eager to be eaten. If a human looks at one hungrily, it will happily immolate itself—either by jumping into a frying pan, after which they taste like chicken or into a broiling pan, after which they taste like steak. When roasted they taste like pork, and when baked they taste like catfish. Raw, they taste like oysters on the half-shell.
- They also produce eggs (neatly packaged), milk (bottled, grade-A), and butter—no churning required. Their pelts make perfect boot leather or house timbers, depending on how thick one slices them.
- They have no bones, so there’s absolutely no waste. Their eyes make the best suspender buttons, and their whiskers make perfect toothpicks. In short, they are simply the perfect ideal of a subsistence agricultural herd animal.
Naturally gentle, they require minimal care and are ideal playmates for young children. The frolicking of shmoos is so entertaining (such as their staged “shmoosical comedies”) that people no longer feel the need to watch television or go to the movies.
- Some of the more tasty varieties of shmoo are more difficult to catch, however. Usually, shmoo hunters, now a sport in some parts of the country, use a paper bag, flashlight, and stick to capture their shmoos. At night the light stuns them, then they may be whacked in the head with the stick and put in the bag for frying up later on.
Hmm, look the vibrator is pretty good, but dievca doesn’t think it is quite as great as Al Capp’s Shmoon!
So, let dievca tell you about having floor to ceiling windows: amazing views all the time, plus warmth when the sun is shining.
In the winter, the windows get cold when the sun doesn’t shine, so when one of the HVAC units goes kaput and maintenance needs to order a whole new unit– it gets chilly in the evenings and on poor weather days.
dievca is layering up with clothing and blankets, but she refuses to wear a ‘nose warmer’. dievca will stoop to wearing wool Mukluk Slippers.
Remember those? Wool knit top with a leather patch bottom? dievca’s first pair were from Pier One, then she wore holes in her Aunt’s pair – had them ‘repaired’ with patches of leather and is onto her 3rd pair.
These mukluks are not for Presenting, but they solve the problem of cold feet.
Which comes under the definition ‘something of use’ in dievca’s book.
And, yes, dievca’s nose is still cold.
Cold nose warm heart.
Master loves garter belts and stockings. dievca has avoided wearing panties in that role because the few times she did, she put the panties under the garter belt for looks and then everything has to come off for access. Seeing the photo above….she’s been doing it wrong!
Here’s what the internet said:
Panties on top if you’re wearing them for functional reasons (to suspend your stockings). Panties beneath if you are wearing them just to look sexy. If you want to actually HAVE sex in the garter belt and stockings, panties on top. I’ve always worn my garter belts over my panties because it looks better.
I believe in the garter belt and stockings. I read some statistics, and it’s the most requested lingerie article that prostitutes hear.
Another tip I always say when wearing garter belts, you wear your underwear over your garter belt for easy access. I believe in wearing lingerie because we love it, I don’t believe in putting it on for a man. I believe that we wear it for us, and if someone is lucky enough to be in our presence and experience that, so be it. But the ultimate seductress is one who realizes in everyday practice the cultivation of your sensuality, and how it radiates to other people. That’s what makes others want to be around you.
