To present for Master at the Standard Hotel.

said the Master to His dievca.
Immediately, a number of visuals flashed into her head:
So…..What does charming mean?
Definition of charming
: extremely pleasing or delightful : entrancing
- a charming restaurant, He has such charming manners
Hmmm, seems a bit sketchy.
dievca sent this back:
But it never hurts to read up before a Gig.
The funny thing is….Master is naturally charming, but dievca just couldn’t resist. she might pay for this~
And that book cover is from a 1962 Self-help book for Females. (more on the book, later)
So….are you CHARMING?
A gift for the Sir or Madame who appreciates fashion.
dievca picked this up at the Met for her Master.
A small touch of Fashion insider knowledge –what is it?
A quirky leather bookmark inspired by Japanese footwear. Celebrating The Costume Institute exhibition Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology at The Met, in which inventive creations by Maison Margiela were on view.
The cult fashion label expresses its creativity by recycling, transforming, and reinterpreting the quotidian in unexpected ways. The Tabi bookmark displays Maison Martin Margiela’s signature avant-garde sensibility. Handmade in France with the logo stamped in gold.
EDIT FROM OLIVIA KIM: “Always provocative and witty, Maison Martin Margiela accessories are fun and collectible. I love the Tabi bookmark, based on the insole from his iconic split-toe shoes. This is a perfect companion with the Manus x Machina exhibition catalog.”
And where does it come from?
The Footprint of the Iconic Tabi Boots –
A staple for Maison Margiela since A/W 1995-1996
dievca’s gift to Master for His last birthday. He reads, a lot.
The one attached to His submissive
is delightfully sore…
Time for a check-up:
(translation = let dievca talk it out)
dievca’s views for the blog have been down, followers is up – she knew she was “hidden” by WordPress, but when she hasn’t been able to read other great posts and keep up with new bloggers — that limits new connections. Add that blog friends have disappeared: Instagram, death (literally for 3 people), new partners, new focuses, new activities, physical illness, mental illness, family, etc. You get it.
It doesn’t matter – Staying consistent and posting daily is one way dievca finds peace and it is the only way dievca can keep the blog rolling. she knows this because when she stopped her photo blog daily after a year — she never went back to it, though she has the photos. Maybe someday…
You know that Master was very ill. You know that His elderly family members have passed and now dievca’s elderly family members are passing. Her parents are in their 80’s. Master was worried about His young family members. Master is working hard, dievca is working hard. dievca sold a house in the Midwest, she is considering to buy a co-op in NYC, her back went out, etc.
Life got in the way of BDSM for a while.
Master and dievca are still playing. But, it’s not as consistent as the beginning of the blog. Life issues, injuries, sickness, etc. that takes a toll. Add that dievca and Master have become very close – and that gets in the way, sometimes. But after much trial and error, Master and dievca have found ways to signal that the BDSM needs to take over.
And it is needed.
Master and dievca have had their reaffirmation.
The trust creates a connection unlike any other.
do I keep the blog?
will Life get easier?
do I work to continue a BDSM relationship with Master?
XO – let dievca know.
And… a HUGE, THANK YOU, for joining her on this ride.
(dievca can be found on Instagram….nah~)
You taste like chocolate on my Lips,
and its divine.
FRESH BLUEBERRIES for Master!
dievca’s Master loves blueberries – she wants to change it up from the Crumble of past years, so she is trying a Blueberry Pie Recipe for Homemade Pie Day.
A homey way to serve Master.
4 Cups fresh blueberries
3/4 Cup white sugar
5 level Tablespoons cornstarch
1 9″ double crust recipe
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 Tablespoon of butter
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
2 Tablespoons of lemon juice
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Mix sugar, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, lemon juice and mix with blueberries.
Line pie dish with one pie crust. Pour berry mixture into the crust, and dot with butter. Cut remaining pastry into 1/2 – 3/4 inch wide strips, and make lattice top.
Crimp and flute edges.
Bake pie on middle rack of oven for about 50 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
Wait 1 hour before cutting to let the cornstarch set.
