~to have mastery over me~

Monica Bellucci by Chicio Bialas

Feeling alluring and sexual, a rush of want swept over me.
In my strength, I desired to be Overcome.
Overwhelmed.
Dominated.


Incredibly Lovely!

AGATHA bijoux

dievca ran into something interesting during the final day of the PRINTEMPS summer sale.

AGATHA Jewelry with a subtle BDSM theme. Not on Soldes but not too dear, either.

The pieces looked well made.


“As women, we all have certain weaknesses…..” Edith Head (repost)

As women, we all have certain weaknesses.
I know one who can’t resist pretty shoes but has nothing suitable to wear with them.
Others adore frilly lingerie but never have any money to buy outer clothing.

“Good Morning”

Zahra Norbo (born February 7, 1934) is a Swedish model. She was Playboy magazine’s Playmate of the Month for the March 1958 issue. Her centerfold was photographed by Tom Caffrey.

Norbo was Miss Sweden 1955 or 1956 (see below) and a popular pin-up model in men’s magazines and all-around popular magazine model who appeared in publications like Spick, Stag, Tempo and Tiger.

It has been reported, that Zahra, though she will oblige photographers by peeling down to a bikini, definitely would not disrobe no further. “I would feel uncomfortable,” she was quoted as saying.

She also scored a few television appearances, notably on The Groucho Marx Show. There’s a bit of confusion about which year she was Miss Sweden. Some sources, Wikipedia among them, say it was 1956, but there is a 1956 press photo that refers to her as the earlier year’s winner.

Here is what Playboy said in her March 1958 layout: “After copping the Miss Sweden title three years ago, Miss Norbo came to the U.S. of A.” That pretty much settles it 😘 —she won her title in 1955 using her real name Ragnhild Olausson.

These provocative shots were made in 1957 by acclaimed lensman, Peter Basch.


National Lipstick Day!

Putting on LipstickThroughout the ages, controversy has surrounded lipstick. British Parliament banned it in 1770 calling it a devilish attempt to trick men into marriage. They likened it to witchcraft. Lipstick has been known to contain poisonous materials.

It is said Sarah Bernhardt created a scandal by applying “lip rouge” in public. Queen Victoria considered it impolite, yet Winston Churchill thought it was an excellent morale booster during WWII and George Washington supposedly was a lipstick wearer.

dievca received her first Chanel Lipstick from a good friend who felt she deserved better than the drugstore brands.

What color do you wear, or like to see?
Do you treat yourself? or just go for the less expensive brands?

dievca is into the Neutrogena moisture smooth color stick Grapefruit for daytime and either MAC Russian Red or Bobbi Brown Art Stick Harlow Red for something more dramatic. (note: the Bobbi Brown Harlow is similar to the classic MAC Ruby Woo.)

So, do red lips drive Men and Women to Madness?
