A new twist – estrogen drop

Erect Nipple

So your female submissive is in her 40’s to 50’s and her levels of hormones have been shifting all over the place.

One bonus might be a drop in estrogen which causes the progesterone levels rise, triggering her nipples to be more sensitive. Perhaps her nipples have been a non-entity for years and now they are front and center – literally – shape and size. Something that has been numb in the past, has become incredibly touchy – which makes for another dimension in play.

Go cautiously, but the bodily change might offer diversity and delight for both Dominant and submissive!

dievca has found one positive aspect of perimenopause and Master ran with it!


Do people watch a television any more?

don-flowers-glamour-girls-art-sexy telivision girl

Or is everyone streaming content? Netflix, AppleTV, peacock, Disney+, etc.
Does broadcast television exist anymore?
Where does one start when you haven’t watched a “show” in years?
dievca was working under the theory that she would watch TV when her body couldn’t move anymore.
she’d catch up on all the movies she hadn’t seen or watch “Sex in the City” for the 1st time.
Now there is too much content.
she’s frozen.
Analyze to Paralyze…

God, is the World passing dievca by? or can she catch a ride on the next trend?

Anyone out there feeling the same?


Interesting on so many levels

cigars

dievca was looking for a little submissive elegance and ran into this advertisement from the Cigar Institute of America.  Their message is interesting on many levels: Why just single girls? Is she a gold digger? Does she just want to be taken care of like a good cigar? Can you truly justify that starting to smoke cigars young will keep you young? She does look older than he does.  If you don’t inhale you can still enjoy the rich flavor – is that like not swallowing in fellatio?  Hmm – much to think about~


My Mom isn’t eating much.

HeartAnd she is a sleeping more. Is it depression or time to go?
Its the first time dievca’s Mom wanted to sleep rather than speak with her. 

When you are the youngest of the two youngest and everyone (Dad/Aunts/Uncles) have passed.  Your last tie to an Era will soon be cut.  You can only hope that your oldest cousins can answer your questions about Family.

she knows she shouldn’t borrow trouble, but dievca’s heart is hurting.

Her Mom’s Life isn’t really a Life – so it will be good when Mom catches up with dievca’s Dad. She misses him

dievca just keeps sending Love from her mind and her heart.


Every body is a poem ~

20210621_104941
dievca ran into this sweatshirt at H&M in NYC. she agrees with the message.
“Work with what God gave you” and “rock it”, comes to mind.
Maybe the changes in one’s body due to age are the stanzas.
Or maybe one’s body is just a “Work of Art” in progress.
That seems to fit.

(show it) at the beach

Feet at the Beach

Oh they won’t let us show it at the beach no they won’t let us show it at the beach
They think we’re gonna grab it if it gets within our reach
And they won’t let us show it at the beach

But you can show it in your parlor to most anyone you choose
You can show it at a party with your second shot of booze
You can show it on the corner wearin’ overcoat and shoes
But they won’t let us show it at the beach
No they won’t let us show it at the beach friends
Ah they won’t us show it at the beach
Oh they’re sure we’re gonna grab it if it gets within our reach
So they won’t let us show it at the beach

But you can show it in the movies on the cineramic screen
You can show it in the most sophisticated magazine
You can show it while you’re bouncing on the high school trampoline
But they won’t let us show it at the beach

But if you’ve got a gun it’s legal to display it on your hip
You can show your butcher knives to any interested kid
But if it’s made for lovin’ then you’d better keep it hid
And they won’t let us show it at the beach

Ilili was ‘hopping’ on a Tuesday Night. The bar, two large rooms and outside dining was full. Look, NYC – like other places, went through a long haul with COVID-19 numbers – NYC locals are ready to GET OUT. It was a beautiful vibe last night, and the amazing work from the Vaccine developers made it happen. A HUGE ‘Thank You’ to them.
(PS. Yes, the economy of NYC is based on tourism, but selfishly – not running into any tourists is a great treat.)


Lazy Sunday Sex Position

lazy-sunday-morning-inspo-pic

After wine, a burger and good company – dievca slept in for a lazy Sunday. Master will be stopping by in the afternoon to relax.  Maybe the ‘LAZY SUNDAY’ position will come into use – dievca is really not moving too fast.RR-SEX-POSITION-LAZY-SUNDAY-v1

LAZY SUNDAY SEX POSITION

Find a chair or large pillow so you are both sitting at a 45 degree angle.

One partner lies on the bottom, while the other clambers on top facing upwards so your bodies are in perfect alignment.

Keep your thighs together for a more intense sensation as the lower lover enters from behind.


The Spirit is willing, the Body – not so much.

Growing Old – Matthew Arnold

What is it to grow old?
Is it to lose the glory of the form,
The lustre of the eye?
Is it for beauty to forgo her wreath?
—Yes, but not this alone.

Is it to feel our strength—
Not our bloom only, but our strength—decay?
Is it to feel each limb
Grow stiffer, every function less exact,
Each nerve more loosely strung?

Yes, this, and more; but not
Ah, ’tis not what in youth we dreamed ’twould be!
’Tis not to have our life
Mellowed and softened as with sunset glow,
A golden day’s decline.

’Tis not to see the world
As from a height, with rapt prophetic eyes,
And heart profoundly stirred;
And weep, and feel the fullness of the past,
The years that are no more.

It is to spend long days
And not once feel that we were ever young;
It is to add, immured
In the hot prison of the present, month
To month with weary pain.

It is to suffer this,
And feel but half, and feebly, what we feel.
Deep in our hidden heart
Festers the dull remembrance of a change,
But no emotion—none.

It is—last stage of all—
When we are frozen up within, and quite
The phantom of ourselves,
To hear the world applaud the hollow ghost
Which blamed the living man.

Unlike the poem states – dievca still feels flashes of being young. she has hints and memories of free movement, but she wonders if this poem applies to her Mother’s age when memories dim and movement is slim. Note: that dievca is saying this as she is elevating and heating a knee which was painful upon awaking -trying to remember her name.

They made such a to-do

Jill Biden Tightsabout Jill Biden’s tights…and dievca immediately thought “Rock It, Lady”!

The First Lady is 69-years-old and giving her personal fashion a go  – its right up there with the octogenarian NY-ers dievca loves seeing – they are killing it with their leopard tights.

dievca wants to be bold in her aging and Master loves stockings. Akira Chicago was offering really fun fishnet tights to help her process.

Turnsole = Sun God/Goddess

turnsole is a type of plant that turns with the movement of the sun, a sunflower being the most famous example. From Middle French tournesol, the word literally means “turns toward the sun,” and was modeled after the synonymous Greek term heliotrope. As in French, when the word came into English in the 1300s it initially referred to the purple dye that came from a turnsole plant (Chrozophora tinctoria.). Soon after, turnsole broadened in meaning to refer to all types of plant that turn with the sun.

facing the sun

Is a Human a “turnsole” when he/she faces the sun to welcome its healing heat? Or is the definition only for plants. All dievca knows is that she is seeking the sun this Spring, like a sun-worshipping goddess.

Can someone explain?

Why someone would be interested in using this Supreme SS16 Brass Key Chain?

dievca doesn’t get it.

Yes, she knows people wouldn’t understand why she has a fluffy fur ball keychain~

A-List?

The “Rat Pack” 1962 – Las Vegas

  • “A-list” actors are exceptionally successful, their notoriety extends beyond the silver screen, and their name guarantees a box office hit. The “A-list” actors are usually made up of male actors with more high-earning positions.
  • “B-list” actors are usually television actors or less successful movie stars. “B-list” actors usually never headline a film by themselves; this means the supporting actors are usually fairly notable too.
  • “C-list” actor is a character actor that’s known by face and not by name. They are usually still good actors, but they receive less notoriety than an A or B-list actor.
  • “D-list” actors are the lowest on the celebrity hierarchy; they appear on celebrity game shows and reality television

Getty Images: St. Elmo’s Fire Cast – part of the “Brat Pack”

dievca’s A-List group from Generation X is the “Brat” Pack — people from John Hughes Movies (16 Candles, Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, etc.) What was once an A-List person becomes a D-List person — it just seems like such a strange thing. Then again, dievca is not in the entertainment industry at all – nor does she want to be~ Her self-worth is internal.


Thoughts on a Friday: Nice vs. Kind

Kindness is a behavior marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and a concern for others. It is known as a virtue and is recognized as a value in many cultures and religions.

 

The Difference between being Nice and being Kind.

The way I understand it, kindness emerges from someone who’s confident, compassionate and comfortable with themselves. A kind person is loving and giving out of the goodness of their heart.

At the root of extreme niceness, however, are feelings of inadequacy and the need to get approval and validation from others. Overly-nice people try to please so that they can feel good about themselves.
~ Marcia Sirota

 

Kind:

  • Genuinely kind people are giving because it’s in their nature to care, and since they have no ulterior motives, they aren’t concerned with whether or not other people like them.
  • Kind people can be assertive and set good limits.
  • Kind people have good self-esteem and because they love themselves as much as they care about others, they expect to be treated with respect.
  • Kind people take responsibility for their own self-care. They’re generous, even altruistic, but don’t get caught up in a user-pleaser type of relationship.
  • Kind people are happy people, to begin with, and add to their happiness through acts of generosity and altruism. Nice people are needy people who inadvertently create more and more unhappiness for themselves

Nice:

  • Nice people bend over backward to be obliging. They deal with potential conflicts by placating the other person because they can’t bear to have anyone upset with them.
  • Nice people are desperate for approval, so they’re often mistreated or taken advantage of.
  • Nice people tend to do too much for those who don’t deserve it and are easy prey for users. They get into co-dependent relationships in which they care-take others in the hopes of eventually being cared for themselves.
  • The nice person is careful not to offend anyone and wouldn’t dream of expressing a “negative” emotion. They focus on being good to others, to the detriment of their own needs. In fact, they’re afraid to ask for what they want for fear of creating conflict.
  • Nice people stuff down their feelings, not wanting to be a bother to anyone, but the problem with this is that emotions can’t be kept down indefinitely. Feelings and needs are meant to be expressed and when they’re repressed, they find another outlet.
  • The nice person is overly-invested in the emotional pay-off they’re hoping to achieve by pleasing and taking care of others. They’re also unwilling to face how much hurt or anger they’re carrying. They’re resistant to changing their behavior, despite the consequences of their compensatory addictions.

Scent: Attraction and Repulsion

dievca caught up with one of her Nephews and caught a whiff of plain Patchuli – a strong scent she absolutely HATES.  Hey, whatever works for him and his family – just don’t stand too close to your Aunt.  She will love you from a distance after coming in for the initial hug.

That brought to mind scents, why someone wears scents and what might be attractive to others:

Apparently, Women looking for love should wear floral fragrances to attract a man, while preferring a ‘woody’ scent on potential lovers, according to a new study.

British-based bathroom supplier Showerstoyou.co.uk teamed up with Fragrantica.com, to explore the most popular scents of the year and the notes they have in common.

Their study of 3,978 men and 3,743 women, revealed that most women have a preference for men wearing a ‘woody’ scent while 85 percent of men admit they’re most attracted to women spritzed with a ‘floral’ fragrance.

A Woman’s Most Seductive Fragrance Notes:

RANKING 

1 Floral 85%

2 Sweet 81%

3 Fruity 78%

4 Vanilla 73%

5 Citrus 69%

6 Rose 63%

7 Aromatic 58%

8 Powdery 52%

9 White Floral 46%

10 Coconut 41%

 

Sexiest Smells for Men:

RANKING 

1 Woody 86%

2 Aromatic 78%

3 Warm Spice 72%

4 Fresh Spice 64%

5 Citrus 57%

6 Amber 51%

7 Powdery 48%

8 Balsamic 43%

9 Leather 38%

10 Musk 34%

What do you think about the rankings? dievca loves the smell of leather~

Men voted My Way by Giorgio Armani as the most popular perfume of 2020 for women, ranking highly among the scents, with blossoming notes of floral.

Meanwhile 86 percent of women said the most sensual scents for men contained the outdoorsy note ‘woody’, voting Dior Homme 2020 by Christian Dior the most popular 2020 fragrance for men.

Hmmm, dievca prefers the notes of Green Tea and Bergamot which run crisp and fruity…maybe not so romatic. Master? He just smells of himself which is very sexy and comforting to His dievca.

In the past, dievca’s nose has lead her to the following Men’s Scents (maybe it was the Men who wore them) – its just random chance that they were launched a decade apart – Good Life is the one she decided to wear herself – note the patchouli in two of them, but the one she liked best doesn’t have it and is citrusy.

Polo Raph Lauren launched in 1978:

Top notes are Juniper Berries, Caraway, Artemisia, Basil, Coriander and Bergamot; middle notes are Pine Tree Needles, Leather, Chamomile, Pepper, Carnation, Geranium, Jasmine and Rose; base notes are Tobacco, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Cedar, Vetiver, Musk and Amber.

Farenheit by Dior launched in 1988:

Top notes are Nutmeg Flower, Lavender, Cedar, Chamomile, Mandarin Orange, Hawthorn, Bergamot and Lemon; middle notes are Violet Leaf, Nutmeg, Cedar, Sandalwood, Honeysuckle, Carnation, Jasmine and Lily-of-the-Valley; base notes are Leather, Vetiver, Musk, Amber, Patchouli and Tonka Bean.

Good Life by Davidoff launched in 1998:

Top notes are Fig Leaf, Melon, Lavender, Bergamot, Grapefruit and Black Currant; middle notes are Magnolia, Violet, Amalfi Lemon and Pelargonium; base notes are Tea, Clover, Sandalwood, Almond and Amber.

Master and dievca were talking about 2020 – it’s been – well you know. Master made the point that there is an end in sight. This follows the idea that Humans can endure many things as long as there is an end in sight, it’s when there is no relief on the horizon that things are seen as hopeless.  dievca repeats – there is an end in sight.

The demise of the discount…

NYC is one of the Fashion Capitals of the World.  It’s a place where you can buy items at full price and it WAS a place where you could find excellent discounts on items.  Discount stores, sample sales, etc.

Retail is tough.

In the 16 years, she has lived in NYC, she has watched the closure of Daffy’s, Filene’s Basement (Boston-based), Barneys Warehouse,  Loehmann’s, and now – the Crown Jewel – Century 21.

Granted the Joy of digging through the racks for a deep deal had diminished when they cleaned up and reorganized the main store.  But there were still deals to be had~

dievca will mourn the loss of Vivienne Westwood dresses, Moschino coats, Martin Margiela pants, Louboutin heels, Missoni gloves, Failero Sarti scarves, Chloe sunglasses, Proenza Schouler bags, etc.  she took a peek through her closet, Century 21 has let her develop an amazing clothing and accessory collection and find unique pieces from obscure labels.

In the big picture of Life — this closure doesn’t mean much, but in the little details that create Joy, there will be a large hole for Fashion Shoppers. Touching a piece of fabric is much different than seeing it on a computer screen.


My City

Not the City of my Birth
The City of my Choice
Quiet in Covid-19
50% loving it
50% worried for the future
But the Phoenix has Risen in the Past
What’s to hold it back for the Future?

Americans are also more upbeat than people in other wealthy nations when asked how their day is going. While we ask this question to help respondents get more comfortable with the interviewer, it provides a glimpse into people’s moods and reveals a slightly negative correlation between those saying the day is a good one and per capita gross domestic product. About four-in-ten Americans (41%) described their day as a “particularly good day,” a much higher share than those in Germany (21%), the UK (27%) and Japan (8%). Pew Research Center, 2015

Yes, dievca is an eternal optimist….

Sprinkled Kisses

A lipstick ring around your cock is a beautiful way to start cock worship. But to change it up, should we try sugar sprinkled lips? A sweet taste with a light massage and lots of spit to dissolve the little balls which can be used to massage the larger balls.  Envision a lot of licking and kissing. Sounds like a very nice way to brighten up the day.

Hmmm, would work if you don’t remove the straw from the coffee at any point in time… Wish dievca short lines. XO


NYC Autumn Morning


Photos: dievca NYC 10/2020

Autumn, New York, 1999

Patricia Spears Jones

And I am full of worry I wrote to a friend
Worry, she replied about what—love, money, health?

All of them, I wrote back. It’s autumn, the air is clear
and you hear death music—the rattle of leaves swirling

the midnight cat howling, a newborn baby’s 3 am
call for food or help or heart’s love

At the market, the green, red and yellow apples are piled high,
sweet perfume—once, I went apple picking in Massachusetts

a day of thralling beauty, my companions and I
had no desire to leave the valley—the plump trees,

the fierce pride of small town New England where a gift shop
exploded gingham, calico, silly stuffed toys

we stood within this shrine to cloying femininity of entwined hearts
and ribbons and bows like invading aliens, fascinated and appalled

and here too, people throng around the dahlias—
the last of the bright fat flowers. Open. Scentless.

It is going to be a very hard winter and we all know it in our bones
an almost atavistic memory with instruction—wear heavy clothes
horde food, drink water, stand against the wind

listen.

Toes in the Wild

Have you had a haircut?
How about dental cleaning, a massage, facial, leg wax, or pedicure?
It’s been 7 months and dievca finally brought her toes out from the Wild to a salon for a more formal clean-up.
What a pleasure. (www.dearsundays.com)

The return of her toes to civilization reminded dievca of the great 2003- DSW videos of the same nature:

2003 – Value City Department Stores Inc. has launched a second series of ads for DSW Shoe Warehouse since Value City named Charles Rath its executive vice president and chief marketing officer.

Dubbed “Shoes in the Wild,” the spots show women hunting for the perfect spring shoes. The ads were created by an all-woman creative team at New York-based Cliff Freeman & Partners.

The ads are running on cable networks, including E!, Oxygen and HGTV, and in cities such as Columbus, Denver, Dallas, Miami, Boston, and Atlanta.

2009 – Cliff Freeman & Partners, a one-time creative hotbed, is shutting its doors. The New York agency’s only major client, Baskin-Robbins, says it is searching for a new shop. Agency founder Cliff Freeman is known for Wendy’s, “Where’s the Beef” ads, creating Little Caesar’s “Pizza, Pizza” ads and Snapple‘s “Wendy the Snapple Lady” ads.

Cliff Freeman delivered some classic ads for Outpost.com. Most people will cite the Gerbil Cannon as the best. It was quite shocking when it was first aired, and there s just something special about the pure look of terror on that tuba player’s face in the Wolves commercial.

The shop had trouble emerging from the dot-com bust and by 2003, was leaking crucial talent. One trio of former executives started the boutique Amalgamated. In 2005, Freeman brought in CEO Jeff McClelland, a big agency executive with time at Dentsu and Ogilvy. The idea was to help the firm adapt to changes in the ad environment and move into more multidisciplinary integrated work. McClelland had some new-business success, but he left the agency last year.

The epitome of a family retreat, Forest House sits nestled among tall trees in a forested hill area in Northern California. The dwelling was designed by the Envelope A+D architecture studio as a space that perfectly blends into the landscape, making the most of the natural setting at the same time. Unlike traditional cabins, the house features not one, but nine separate structures connected to each other and to the forest. The expansive building aims to provide a welcoming retreat space for the clients’ family, friends and colleagues.
