red sheets

red sheetsAfter dievca finished her call with Master, she was inspired to masturbate.

dievca gathered the yellow banana and double prong vibrators, along with a towel, lube, anal plug, black hood and cock gag.

she lay the towel down on her bed hanging over one side in case she squirted, and set the vibrators to the right.  Stepping into the bathroom she washed her hands after moistening her pussy and anus with lube then inserting the anal plug.

Arriving back in the bedroom, dievca stood next to the bed to put on the hood and opened her mouth to insert the cock gag. she leaned over the side of the bed, spread-eagling her legs.

dievca then felt her way to the vibrators, picked-up the yellow banana, turned it on low and used the tip to spread the lube on her clit. Afterward, the banana easily slipped into her pussy . dievca patted the bed to find the double prong vibrator with her other hand and turned it on to the medium setting. With one hand holding the banana inside her pussy, dievca use the other vibrator to tease her clitoris, while imagining that Master’s Cock was in her mouth.

The bent over position, images of Master’s Cock, and vibrators took dievca to that glorious EDGE of arousal but not quite orgasm. dievca sat on that edge of pleasure, squeezing her pussy and clenching her asshole. After about three minutes, she increased both vibrator’s intensity and flowed into a fog of Master’s presence. Riding that edge for another two minutes – dievca orgasmed HARD and found that she had drooled all over the cock gag and hood.

Not quite as good as serving her Master – but a lovely start to the week.

(why “red sheets”? the submissive in the photo is built like dievca)


Coffee and a chat with Master

Master has been traveling for about 4 weeks — dievca caught up with Him this morning. 

Might require a masturbation moment.


Keeping your Cadence – something of use

dievca travels – not heavily, but about 10+ trips (short and long) a year. she spotted these travel containers from Cadence to organize her “fluids” + “odds and ends”. They work wonderfully well for short trips and storing items for the “quick” grab of last minute travel. They do run out for longer trips, unless you double up on the units of storage.

Cadence Travel Capsules

The Capsules are customizable, leakproof, magnetic containers designed to maintain your routines – home and away.

You can buy the containers singly or in packs – choosing your color(s) and labels.

As you can see, dievca went for a multi-colored approach as well as different labels. This has to do with her not being able to see well without glasses or contacts. If you can see — a single colored set of containers with different labels would be very elegant!

Mix and Match – take what you need.
Something of Use.

Hitting the Highway

Routes across the USA

And thinking of you!

The Map above is suggesting ways to see the USA — some are the roads (#10 – Route 66) and others are routes trasversing the United States via multiple routes using Moon Travel Guides. With air travel being a great challenge – maybe splurging on a car trip might be an option for Summer Travel.


feeling chlapec – Scandinavian Eyeglasses #2

Skaga 2865 Fri Black Men's glasses

dievca’s second pair of glasses are supposedly a masculine frame.  When dievca visits the Swedish optical shop she wanders around and tries on all the frames she finds interesting, then she collects the 8-10 pairs of frames she likes best and ranks them.  When she’s wandering, she never notices if she is in the female/male/kids section.

This second pair of frames were more expensive than the 1st – about $200.  They have a mixed media component: Carbon Fiber, Wood and Metal.  dievca bought them at her friends insistence.  They are a heavier more serious look than her red metal frames.  The photos don’t do them justice.  The wood in the photo looks light – its more of a subtle grey and the top carbon fiber is black matte with a gravel texture.

Very interesting.

Skaga has an authentic heritage, a long design tradition and history that few brands can rival.


Scandinavian Eyeglasses – Option #1

So, its been a few years since dievca has been able to upgrade her eyeglass frames in Scandinavia.

These past couple of years, she wore a pair of Laura Ashley Frames and a pair of Chanel frames – but they just weren’t comfortable. dievca had to add nose pads so that the glasses would be place higher on her nose and the acetate frames didn’t have much flexibility for uneven ears…

On her recent trip to Europe, she was able to visit her favorite optical shop in a small Swedish town and at her friend’s suggestion – she bought two pairs of glasses.  They arrived from the USA optical shop today.

This is the pair Master likes best:

OPO Scandanavia Optics NPS_3168_C33

OPO Scandinavia Optics NPS_3168_C33 red(click here)

The OPO brand is created in Malmö Sweden. Here is what they say about the NPS line:

We have been working with the NPS collection since 2005 and it’s a constant development in cooperation with our clients and the market. Today we offer a wide range of metal frames with flex hinges for both men and women, as well as trendy acetate frames in colours ranging from neutral back to transparent red. We choose to also make more priceworthy frames in acetate instead of injection plastic, to maintain the high quality that we are known for.

The frames cost about $65.00. There is a webshop!

dievca got the lenses added at Target.

A Mature Moment – Modehus

dievca’s Swedish friend laughs at her because dievca always has to visit two stores in a small town.  One is an optical shop that sells great eyeglass frames and the second is, well, yeah – a “Mature Women’s” shop . A modehus that her friend does not step into unless dievca is visiting.  Let’s put it this way – dievca saw a pair of cropped pants in the store and then saw them on her friend’s Mother-in-Law an hour later.

Whatever.  dievca stops in because she always finds a gem.

Two trips ago, the gem was a dress made by a Danish designer upcycling vintage Sari silk.  dievca still wears the dress.  dievca bought a similar dress on her last trip, but she felt that the arms were too snug and she passed it on to her Dutch friend.  Her friend loves the dress so much and has worn it a number of times that she had to wash it.

dievca received this photo in response:

You have to appreciate a fabric care tag telling it like it is!

What did dievca buy this trip? 

Well, TWO pairs of eyeglass frames – but they will appear in another post and a “Made in Italy” linen top which was a tunic but dievca’s friend’s Mother cropped it for our short dievca:

Travel burnout

dievca doesn’t know if it was the international travel, the surgery or this second round of travel.
she hit a wall.
The good news is that there is no pressing schedule and there is enough time to get things done with healing.
Taking it slow this morning.

Looking a little ruff around edges

1st Class Passanger

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


Prepping for Midsommar

dievca’s friend had a delivery from her Father – new potatisar (potatoes) and jordgubbar (strawberries) from their Summer House garden.  We have a dill plant, chives in the garden, sour cream and pickled herring.  Lamb will be on the grill.

The traditional accompaniment is a cold beer and schnapps.

dievca’s task? Scrub the potatoes…

Missing a day~

Sometimes when you travel the days blur, dievca lost that yesterday was a Monday.

So, the coffee love is coming a bit late:

The Gardens of Santar


Built on a Rock – Viseu

(click on photos to enlarge)

The origins of the city of Viseu date back to the Celtic period when it was called ‘Vissaîegobor’. With its Romanization, the settlement gained importance and was renamed ‘Vissaium’, being at the intersection of a series of Roman roads linking Mérida, Lisbon, and Galicia.

Viseu is associated with Viriathus, since it is thought that the Lusitanian hero may have been born in this region. After the Roman occupation of the peninsula, under the Visigoths, the settlement was elevated to the status of city and to the seat of a diocese by at least the 6th century.

Viseu is a regional economic hub with a strong wine industry and is the seat of international conglomerate Visabeira. The city is also a cultural center, home to the nationally acclaimed Grão Vasco Museum, seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Viseu, and center of national universities, including the Catholic University of Portugal.

Magpie Nest

The internet at the Eco-Lodge is dodgy and weather dependent, which makes the sharing of photos and information tricky.  The photos dievca is sharing today are the ones she could download in a shorter period of time (40 min) – the store is in Viseu and was an oddity for the area. 

A store with a lot of bling and merchandise – a Magpie’s Nest.

Flight was Amazing!

Passport control – Hell… 3 hours in the line.

Missed train and couldn’t rebook because all was sold out on a Sunday… dievca’s friend had to drive 3 hours to pick her up.

The Eco – Lodge is a paradise.  Fresh lemons, oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, apricots, raspberries, nectarines all for the picking.  32 C (90F) during the day beside the pool, dropping to 19C (66F) during the night..

Can you find the house (left) and the edge of the pool (right) in the photo above?  It’s taken from down below by the fruit trees!

Warm southern wind,

dressed wrong (a dievca disaster)

Sooooo…..dievca didn’t pack well for the South Beach crowd.  she didn’t have bodycon dresses, sparkles, running shorts with crop tops, and glamorous nails. she forgot her jewelry and a purse.  Square sunglasses are the rage and with dievca’s square face – they were a disaster.

dievca rocked her breezy cotton gauze, silk maxi dress,  wide-leg terry pants, Jackie-O round sunglasses with verve. Enough so, that she caught people looking at her because she was just different from the crowd.  Was it a good different or a bad different? dievca does not know.

she didn’t bother to shop because she was parked on the beach — until she had enough of the sun.

There was one store she wanted to stop by in Miami Beach – the Webster.

dievca was prepared to buy nothing — until she saw a ladylike dress for Master.

A linen A-line sundress from Saloni (the Rachel) – in an orange pattern.  

So, something good comes out of dievca’s South Beach dressing disaster after all.
