Lust for Life: Iggy Pop at the Brooklyn Museum

Master has a favorite Iggy Pop song, it’s:

In college, dievca was interested in:

The version dievca is interested in right now is:

Due to her Life and issues, plus this offering from the Brooklyn Museum:

It appears that Lana del Rey has a Lust for Life, too:


The 4:30 am solution

If the K-Cup coffee offered is terrible — here’s a solution for the 4:30 am coffee need.

The view works for a lovely wake up moment, too.

Good Morning from Your dievča.


June Gloom… (and what is really happening)

June Gloom is a Southern California term for a weather pattern that results in cloudy, overcast skies with cool temperatures during the late spring and early summer. … On a strong June Gloom day, the clouds and fog may extend inland to the valleys and Inland Empire and may persist into the mid-afternoon or evening.

Weather pattern off of Monterey Bay

Go figure~ this is the time dievca can take a quick jaunt to visit friends in CA. she wanted to park it on the beach….but she’s been told it isn’t the best time.

This is quite annoying since the weather in NYC has been heavily gloomy, too. With dievca’s luck, NYC weather will be gorgeous and CA a mess.  Ah, well. At least she is out of the City.

HAH! dievca’s plane arrived 45 minutes early,
her luggage was the first off the plane
and the WEATHER IS AWESOME!

 

 


Diving into Summer


Diving deep for release
Cares and worries sluicing off my back
Floating mindlessly
Finding peace in honesty
Joy in the ability to be

(a quick trip to the West Coast – necessary mental health time)


Working for the Weekend

Since dievca is finally (guiltily) taking a long weekend —
and she has worked for this weekend for a while….
This song has rolled around in her head.

The beginning of the video takes a fun look on how 
the”Get Lucky” album was named.
The second part is “Working for the Weekend”

dievca hopes the Canadian 80’s flashback
might make you smile. XO


Summer Lingerie

dievca was thinking about Summer and lingerie. Walking on a veranda in bare feet and a light robe. Her mind wandered to fabrics which breathe and are light, such as silk and cotton. She ran into some simple pieces:

The Vermont Store Cotton Seersucker Robe Teal

Peruvian Collection Belle Epoque Cotton Floral Robe

Only Hearts Silk Robe

Lauren RL Ballet Long Nightgown

Hanro Pleated Juliet Cotton Nightgown

Agent Provocateur Baroness Silk Chemise

Olivia von Halle Silk Satin Pajama Set

But honestly…in the summer, dievca sleeps in the nude.


Spring/Summer Refashioned

With moving, dievca has combed her closets and taken items to resale (Buffalo Exchange), dropped items at Goodwill and Housing Works and listed items on eBay. Whew! if it sounds exhausting…it was exhausting~

And then Spring/Summer arrived…and dievca went into overdrive to refresh her closets. She bought 14 items and was thinking about the rest:

 

Is she going to keep it all? dievca is not sure – she has her receipts, but she got rid of 10 + items from her closet and is promising you all that she will remove 5 more, before she keeps anything.

Please note that she was holding on to Spring/Summer Clothes which were 7+ years old….a clear out and revamp was needed.

Did you need to do a clear out? Any suggestions of “keepers” for dievca?
Did you note there wasn’t much black? Those patent leather Puma shoes are navy….
(and if you want to know what she bought – just ask)
