Interesting, right? Its the “French Blue” Jelly Color with the Matte top coat. Apparently, the color has been renamed as “Morningtide”. Two ladies stopped on the sidewalk to comment on dievca’s nails as she took the photo. They liked the combination…

very ugly or unattractive.“we all thought he was fugly”
dievca has refused to wear Birkenstocks or Crocs because she thinks they are absolutely “fugly”. Then she had knee surgery and had to whittle her elegant, no padding sandals and ended up with three pair that look like this:
Apparently, she is doing “fugly”, too. Yeah…
Sea glass for SummerPosted: May 19, 2023 Filed under: Body Type, Fashion | Tags: BDSM, D/s, dievca, Elegant, fresh start, Life, nail polish, Presentaion, sea glass, submissive, Summer, trend Leave a comment
dievca is not a “nail goddess”, she’s not going to be on the cover of a magazine showing off her manicure (each of her nails is a different shape)
dievca is interested in this nail trend for Summer – “Sea Glass”
“Sea glass” is physically and chemically weathered glass found on beaches along bodies of salt water. These weathering processes produce natural frosted glass.
Is there a difference between sea glass and beach glass?
“Genuine sea glass” can be collected as a hobby and is used for decoration, most commonly in jewelry. “Beach glass” comes from fresh water and is often less frosted in appearance than sea glass. Sea glass takes 20 to 40 years, and sometimes as much as 100 to 200 years, to acquire its characteristic texture and shape.
Sea glass nails are exactly what they sound like: a semi-sheer, cool-toned manicure with a matte finish like a piece of glass that has been swept around in the ocean for months, if not years.
Jelly polishes, which give nails a sheer, translucent wash of color reminiscent of Jell-O, are ideal for creating the see-through charm of sea glass. Jelly colors are what makes sea glass nails unique from other pastel manicures. The finish is sheer so one can still see through it after two coats. dievca plans to use Cirque Colors Jelly in Aqua, Jade and French Blue, finishing with Orly Matte Topcoat to complete the sea glass look (Note: its recommended that you use a fast dry top coat before the matte coat for longer wear).
dievca has everything ordered from online and will let you know how the “sea glass nails” step out goes!

Finally, after nine years
of snouting through darkness
he inches up scarred bark
and cuts loose the yammer of desire:
the piercing one note of a jackhammer,
vibrating like a slow bolt of lightning
splitting the air
and leaving a smell like burnt tar paper.
Now it says Now it says Now
clinging with six clawed legs
and close by, a she like a withered ear,
a shed leaf brown and veined,
shivers in sync and moves closer.
This is it, time is short, death is near, but first,
first, first, first
in the hot sun, searing all day long
in a month that has no name:
this annoying noise of love. This maddening racket.
This – admit it – song.

End of Summer:
Long, curly hair with gold amongst the silver from the sun and chlorine.
Toasty brown skin moisturized via suntan lotion and aloe.
Give it a month or two and it will be back to a blown dry bob under a hat.
Fair skin refinished with retinol and heavier UV protection.
This is the first summer in years where dieca’s healing situation has allowed her to revert back to childhood behaviors of Sun, Swim, Play (PT) and Laziness. It’s been a gift she will treasure.
How was/is your Summer?

Repurposing a Caprese Salad – really. (Summertime Goodness)Posted: July 20, 2022 Filed under: Home and Garden | Tags: BDSM, cod, D/s, dievca, fresh produce, fresh start, Humor, Knee Surgery, Life, Master, practical, recipes, submissive, Summer, Whole Foods Leave a comment
dievca had her first experience with ordering fruit and vegetables from Whole Foods.
Her knee is still gimpy and the stores around her are too close for a cab ride and too far for a walk on her knee. So, she ordered online and had it delivered.
Buying fruit and vegetables is more personal than pasta or milk, dievca made her choices and hoped for the best. The shopper did pretty well. The peaches were a bit riper than dievca buys and the two heirloom tomatoes were HUGE. A single tomato barely fit into dievca’s hand.
The tomatoes needed to be used immediately, so dievca chopped BOTH of them into cubes combined them with a package fresh mozzarella pearls, then added fresh basil chopped with herb scissors, olive oil, red balsamic vinegar, and salt/pepper.
Master and dievca could only eat half the tossed salad, so dievca put the leftovers into the fridge for later.
When she pulled it out there was a lot of liquid and as a salad it didn’t appeal.
What to do?
Cod was on the menu within two days and dievca had seen recipes of Cod baked with tomatoes, so she decided to be creative. dievca removed the mozzarella pearls from the leftover caprese salad and marinated the wild caught cod with the salad liquid, tomatoes and basil. She then baked the cod, including the tomatoes and liquid, at 400 F (205 C) for 15 min. (she started with 10 min, but the liquid didn’t look like it was evaporating enough so she went to 5 min more) When the cod came out of the oven she put the mozzarella pearls on top to melt and added a dash of lemon juice.
She served the cod, tomatoes and cheese over plain white rice with a side of sautéed fresh sugar snap peas.
The meal was a success!
dievca thinks it worked because cod has a tendency to take on flavors very well.
she was very happy to use the rest of the heirloom tomatoes!
Sautéed Sugar Snap Peas inspired by the Pioneer Woman blog recipe:
- Snap the stem end of the peas; pull the string off of the length of the pod, and discard. (you may need to do both sides of the pea – dievca did)
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and oil swirl to coat the pan. Add the snap peas, salt, and black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Remove from the heat. Add the butter and lemon juice and stir well to coat.

dievca got home from Europe and her knee was paining her quite a bit. A long Passport line (where a gentleman dropped with a seizure) and a heavy backpack/luggage didn’t help. Today, she caught up with Master, did her PT and has been stretching her legs to the best of her ability – it doesn’t really matter, the knee surgery is tomorrow. Please wish her luck! XO
Summer Solstice: midsummer or the beginning of summer?Posted: June 25, 2022 Filed under: Discussion, Home and Garden | Tags: BDSM, D/s, definition, dievca, Joy, Life, Love, Seasons, submissive, Summer, Weather 2 Comments
So, The summer solstice was on June 21, 2022 and Midsummer is today, June 25th.
Which is truly the start of Summer?
The June Solstice is often referred to as the first day of summer, and yet celebrations across the Northern Hemisphere at this time of year carry the name Midsummer, which is pretty confusing.
Midsummer and the summer solstice are used interchangeably, but they refer to different things.
The solstice is the beginning of the astronomical summer that has been celebrated since ancient times as the longest day of the year, whereas Midsummer now refers to numerous celebrations that are held over the solstice period, between June 19 and June 24, with both pagan and Christian origins.
With celebrations originating in ancient times as a festival for the summer solstice, this could be where the name comes from. Bonfires were lit up to ward off evil spirits as the sun turned southward.
Because the Earth actually takes 365.24 days to travel around the Sun we add an extra day every fourth year, we call this a Leap Year. This means the longest and shortest days vary from one year to the next.
The elliptical shape of the Earth’s orbit causes the lengths of the astronomical seasons to change and this mean it is difficult to compare climatological statistics consistently for a particular season.
This is where the meteorological seasons come in.
Meteorological dates mark the start and end of seasons for statistical purposes. Meteorologists split the year into four quarters, each made up of three months, based on the annual temperature cycle.
The length of the meteorological seasons are more consistent than the astronomical ones, so that we can observe, forecast and compare season statistics reliably from year to year.
- Autumn: September 1 – November 30
- Winter: December 1 – February 28
- Spring: March 1 – May 31
- Summer: June 1 – August 30
This means that for meteorologists it’s been summer since the beginning of June…
Honestly – the Joy of Summer was probably dictated by when your school let out!

Look for Less –> Wal-MartPosted: June 7, 2022 Filed under: Dresses | Tags: BDSM, D/s, dievca, inexpensive, Life, Look for Less, Love, Shopping, submissive, Summer, sundress, Wal-Mart Leave a comment
So, dievca completed that New Jersey Wal-Mart run this weekend and she took time to wander around their clothing department. Why? Years ago, dievca’s favorite T-shirt came from Wal-Mart for $2.58 – she wore it to the woof~ so she always takes a moment to wander Women’s clothing for another inexpensive find.
Two items came to view!
A Linen-Blend White Wide Sleeve Shirt Dress by Free Assembly ($28).
Imagine dievca having a full-blown conversation with the sales lady at 7:30 am – all about the Free Assembly line and how it is selling out quickly. The fabric of this dress is amazing. The conversation informed dievca about what’s hot at a New Jersey Wal-Mart and what’s not. dievca loves to listen to people who are passionate about their jobs.
The second Dress is from their Scoop line. SCOOP NYC was a store in NYC and surrounding areas. It was “hot in the aughts”. They decided to close (Pre-COVID) and dievca still has some of their cashmere sweaters in her closet rotation. Anyways…the Scoop owners have been designing capsule collections for Walmart and every piece that dievca has picked up has been good (shorts, t-shirt, pants). Granted the quality is not as nice as the original SCOOP NYC, but the price is much better. This time, dievca choose their Black Linen-Blend Sundress with smocking ($40):
Two Summer Dresses for $68? Flattering fits? Nice Fabric?

dievca took a photo of her new MUUÑ basket bag – its measurements are length: 20 cm / width: 10 cm / height: 14 cm. Very adorable and ladylike for summer. dievca started playing with effects on her new phone and ended up saving the photo with the effect above and losing the original photo (it’s the user, not the phone…)
Anyways, this French Brand is trying to do good in the World by creating a sustainable bag, handmade and utilizing an underrepresented workforce. A lovely piece for Summer (photo below).

Advantage – US OpenPosted: September 5, 2021 Filed under: Entertainment, Neighborhood Anecdotes (NYC) | Tags: BDSM, D/s, dievca, Friends, fun, Life, NYC, Queens, submissive, Summer, Tennis, US Open Leave a comment
dievca had a friend come up earlier in the week and ask if she would like to go to the US Open. Yes, absolutely! she had never been to the Open.
The day after Storm Ida steamrolled low areas of NYC, dievca checked the subway schedule to see if the 7 train was still up and running. It was, the track runs above ground in Queens.
The trip was easy, people were chill walking in to the facility. They checked vaccine qualifications and bags before the ticket check – it rolled along quickly. Getting a cocktail was a bit trickier, but offering a nice tip for a bartender who slipped them in guaranteed service for the future.
The best part?
The luck of the draw chose the match, dievca and her friends were able to watch and boldness helped them sit closer, it was:
The match was good fun. The Dutchman offered some challenge to Djokovic and it gave you a good sense of what 10 years of experience offers in Tennis. Smart shots. BTW, those serves went up to 126 mph – crazy!
The second match was #75 Amanda Ansimova (USA) vs #4 Karolina Pliskova (CZK) and both were more evenly matched – it got to be a long match, so dievca had to head home.
Because the Met’s game was letting out at the same time, the MTA ran an express train into Manhattan – which skimmed 20 minutes off the trip. dievca didn’t know she could run that fast anymore to catch a train!
