Share your HEART ūüíĚ with Bella Freud

Bella Freud Disco Cardigan ShopBop $575

To share her heart made dievca smile, but she’s not a big cardigan dievca…

So, when she found the NYC black jumper with a heart, plus it is less expensive.
“Voila!‚ÄĚ

Bella Freud Disco Heart Sweater MatchesFashion $291

 


Trainers, Trousers and a Slouchy Sweater

A pair of new KICKS set off an outfit for dievca. The outfit channels her downtown chic – look.¬† she knows her Master checks in with the blog and likes her other “looks” “Diversity, dievca, Diversity”, but….
Master prefers Ladylike when His dievca is presenting for Him.

Sneakers are not Ladylike~

Presenting the KICKS (Strenesse bought at a sample sale):

Here’s the rest of the outfit:

Strenesse Trousers Navy striped (bought at the same sample Sale)

Gucci Floral Semi-sheer Tee

Nili Lotan Cashmere Chunky Sweater

Navy Fox Socks

Strenesse Sneakers

Barneys Suede Camera Crossbody

Tom Ford Sunglasses

dievca must have been inspired by NYC “Street Style” or something because she ran into other people with the same idea. But she didn’t see her dark Monochromatic Look, so hopefully it will be different “chic”, not different “boring”.


Earworm from Monday….

dievca is sorry…..mmmmmm….

….if that song from Monday has been stuck in your head all week. (here’s why)
It’s been stuck in her head, too.

It’s an “EarWorm”.

An¬†earworm, sometimes known as a brainworm, sticky music, or stuck song syndrome, is a catchy piece of music that continually repeats through a person’s mind after it is no longer playing. Phrases used to describe an¬†earworm¬†include “musical imagery repetition”, “involuntary musical imagery”, and “stuck song syndrome” (wiki)

Which brought up this song:

Which may be an Earworm in of itself.

Midwestern Moment

Perhaps you remember that dievca was born in “Fly Over” country….the middle of the USA to be precise. You might not have realized that Master was born in the Midwest, too.¬† He left earlier than dievca did…

Every once in a while dievca likes to honor that heritage and last Friday was

Master’s Midwestern Moment

via dievca. dievca invited Master over for a dinner channeling a traditional Midwestern Meal and presentation.

On the Menu:

Starters:
Fresh Cut Green Peppers and Tomatoes from the Fire Escape with carrots from the Farmer’s Market along with Goat Cheese and Wisconsin Rye Crackers.

Master brought the wine:

Conversation and cooking occurred for the next 1.5 hours.

Dinner was served at 6:30 pm sharp!
(a little late for the Midwest, but a 1/2 way point with NYC)

Marinated Baked Pork Chops with Garlic Mashed Potatoes:


After Dinner a little more conversation and relaxing — no hurrying at all.

dievca perked up and asked Master if he would like some Apple Crumble, another glass of wine, a little cock worship or a presentation outfit.

Master chose the Presentation Outfit.
So dievca changed out of this:

Eva Franco Rainbow Crochet Dress – Anthropologie

Into this:

Vivienne Westwood SS2004¬†“orgies” Orange Dress Fabric

Naked and waxed beneath with Master’s Drop Earrings and Burberry Zipper Heels:

Offerings to Master
Cock Worship
Pussy Sex
Anal Sex
Shower
2nd Round of Cock Worship
Aha Moment! Master gets even larger watching His dievca Orgasm
Multiple Orgasm Finish (for both parties)

The second dessert was offered after a time of odalisquescing and boneless relaxation:

Apple Crumble (Made with four types of apples from the Farmers Market):

Hopefully dievca did the Midwest proud.
Master seemed to think so~
How ’bout you?

Via Barbara Edwards Contemporary
For conceptual artist Taras Polataiko, the idea is primary and the medium is the mode of its conveyance. Consequently, his work takes on many forms from painting, photography, video and performance, to cultural and political interventions in response to historical events. Through his manifold manipulations, Polataiko has achieved a conceptually rigorous and thematically cohesive practice concerned with notions of rupture and repair.

Polataiko studied painting, art history, and philosophy at the Moscow State Stroganov University of Fine and Industrial Arts, moving to Canada in 1989 to pursue a Master of Fine Arts degree. Polataiko’s own experience of displacement, as a Ukrainian Canadian is central to recurrent themes of cultural conflict and translation in his work. For his celebrated piece Cradle (1996), Polataiko traveled to the Chernobyl alienation zone, exposed himself to radioactivity, and did a full blood transfusion upon his return to Canada. This blood became a core element of an installation, which dealt with the issue of contamination as the imperceptible element. Here exposure is a means of addressing the past, thereby resolving the future through dialogue and awareness.


To be Alive.

dievca celebrated her Birthday, this month, and those years are creeping up in number…

Master asked her what she thinks of Birthdays and of her Birthday.
It took her a moment to come up with her answer.

It was twofold:

1.) I am alive.
2.) Birthdays are an opportunity for people to connect. Phone, Cards, Emails, texts, Face-to-Face.

dievca really treasures the time that people take to connect. she knows it’s a World of busyness, chaos, time-stealers, deadlines, obligations. And if people take their precious time to connect. Wow!

Same goes here on WordPress — when someone takes the time to read, comment, say they stopped by~ How generous.

What does a dievca do for a Birthday in the City?
Send a text out to see if people can stop by for a drink at a local Watering Hole.

In this case, PORCHLIGHT on 11th between 27th and 28th. The new HUDSON YARD area.

Bar from Danny Meyer offering Southern-inspired cocktails & small bites in a handsome space.

What does a dievca wear with the heat (which broke this morning, btw)?

Curly hair growing out, wild…(not much else can be done and it was windy)
Grey/Blue eyeliner, mascara, nude lips and “Bond…James Bond” OPI nail polish on fingernails and toenails!

No, dievca didn’t meet up with Master on the Special Day. They met up earlier in the week when He returned from the West Coast. Master is still a quiet part of dievca’s Life. XO


Relationship Words that defy translation, yet fit.

There are some words that defy definition in the English Language – yet are so right¬†for a situation. ¬†One “hot” word comes to mind:¬†

Hygge (Danish) is a word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cosy, charming or special.

IMAGE: FLICKR, MATT MATCHES

Which seems very similar to:

Gezelligheid (Dutch), a word that depending on context can be translated as convivial, cozy, fun, or nice atmosphere, but can also show someone belonging, time spent with loved ones, the fact of seeing a friend after a long absence, or the general togetherness that gives people a warm feeling.

That said, here are some words that don’t translate easily to the English language, yet convey some very important concepts in relationships.

Mamihlapinatapei (Yagan, an indigenous language of Tierra del Fuego): The wordless yet meaningful look shared by two people who wish to initiate something, but are both reluctant to start.

Yuanfen (Chinese): A relationship by fate or destiny. ¬†A “binding force” that links two people together in any relationship.

From the movie, Serendipity.

Cafun√© (Brazilian Portuguese): The act of tenderly running your fingers through someone’s hair.

Retrouvailles (French): The happiness of meeting again after a long time.

marina abramovic: the artist is present, her lover returns after 30 years

Ilunga (Bantu): A person who is willing to forgive abuse the first time; tolerate it the second time, but never a third time.

La Douleur Exquise (French): The heart-wrenching pain of wanting someone you can’t have.

Scene from Love Actually

Koi No Yokan (Japanese): The sense upon first meeting a person that the two of you are going to fall into love.

Ya’aburnee (Arabic): “You bury me.” One’s hope that they’ll die before another person, because of how difficult it would be to live without them.

Forelsket: (Norwegian): The euphoria you experience when you are first falling in love.

Saudade (Portuguese): The feeling of longing for someone that you love and is lost. Another linguist describes it as a “vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist.”
