Swiming in NYC

August 14, 1938, Floating Bath Hudson River at 96th Street

It’s hot!
dievca and Master are going swimming, but not in the Hudson River.

The river is a bit dirty and the currents can be significant.
Instead, they will be hitting a local lap pool.

  • Stella McCartney x Adidas Orange Snakeskin One-Piece Swimsuit.
  • Speedo Black Silicone Swim Cap.
  • Speedo Clear Hydroplex Goggles.

OK, the suit is not super-glamorous on the sundeck. It is reasonably flattering.


Marilyn Monroe – Lingerie Inspiration

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”


Sophia Loren – Lingerie Inspiration

Nothing makes a woman more beautiful
than the belief that she is beautiful.


 Join dievca for a look at various Style Icons and their lingerie choices.

Master loves diversity and a vintage, ladylike-vibe.

His dievca is gathering inspiration.

Advice…for the submissive.

In a nutshell: Advice giving usually doesn’t work, and often completely backfires.

To be fair, we all find ways to tell others how to live. We can’t help it. We all have strong points of view and believe that others should do or think as we do. And most of us are comfortable expressing those views to others, whether they’re interested or not.

Yet, research using reactance theory informs us that whenever someone tells us what to do and how to do it, we respond with defensive defiance because we want to maximize our personal freedom and decision making.

If we really want to encourage behavior (or belief) change in others we actually need to move away from advice-giving (especially when our advice is unsolicited) and toward modeling. In other words, we need to be an example for others rather than telling them what to do.

Research on observational learning (in conjunction with an understanding of reactance theory) suggests that while people will resist unsolicited advice and instruction, they will follow the behaviors of others—especially when there appear to be good and reinforcing outcomes from these behaviors (or beliefs).

Hmmm…

dievca is still going to give you her advice:

TRY ON YOUR PRESENTATION OUTFIT BEFORE SHOWING UP AT YOUR MASTER OR MISTRESS’ PLACE.

dievca ended up with a Corset Disaster, yesterday. It shrunk from handwashing and dievca’s boobs are running larger. All the hooks closed and she could pull the ties, but she looked like a muffin popping over the tin.

Master’s solution to dievca’s problem was easy:

“Try the outfit on before meeting for D/s”

dievca does plan to heed Master’s advice, will you plan to heed dievca’s advice?

All women are goddesses, and it’s just a matter of letting that goddess-power shine – and if you don’t try to be the biggest and baddest damn goddess you can be, you are selling yourself short.  ~Kimora Lee Simmons
