Book Description

1 Nov 2011
Many women would love to have the domestic goddess thing nailed, to waft around vintage fairs and antique markets for collectable items to furnish their houses with, and to be able to spend all day preparing the ultimate dinner party. But quite frankly women are too busy working, going out and having fun to make their lives just so . But that doesn't mean that their homes aren't important; their homes are as precious as their time The Domestic Sluttery website was created to show women that it is possible to have a gorgeous home while unapologetically cutting a few corners. The book is a logical expansion from the blog, full of lifestyle tips and with a more in-depth look at home interiors (Hiding the Evidence, Design Porn etc.); food and drink (e.g., Veggie not Virtuous, Baking for Beginners); style and beauty (Fashion Lust, Crafty Clothes etc.); and living (e.g., Fabulous and Thrifty, Sluttery Travels). The word sluttery' is used deliberately. It goes back to the traditional use of the word 'slut being slovenly, a little messy which can be a very good thing; it's freeing. This isn t a lifestyle guide for Stepford Wives. those kind of aspirations aren't realistic any more. Instead, Domestic Sluttery offers an aspiration to live life to the full but with permission to make mistakes, to accept that you re not perfect. Instead of compromising on fun, Sian Meades and her domestic sluts will teach you the quick and easy ways to do domestication on the hop. And will reveal how to make a damn good cocktail!

Domestic Sluttery is one helluva pretty book, inside and out. It's filled with funky prints, drool-worthy food and gorgeous fashion pieces. I bought it as I'm a big fan of the blog, and that fun and friendly tone that's present on the site continues through the book. It's filled with useful little snippets, recipes, tips and tricks to get the perfect lifestyle without spending your life scrubbing the kitchen. I love the recipes section, and the home section has given me some great ideas for some finishing touches.

In true Domestic Sluttery style, pour yourself a cocktail, curl up on the sofa and devour every page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your Imperfections are Perfect! 31 Dec 2011
Domesticity is not supposed to be this fun. I found this book full of great ideas to turn my home into my own Homes & Gardens worthy palace without needing endless freetime or a bottomless bank account. Sian & her sluts give great advice on how to have the home life we all want, while remembering (and celebrating) that today's woman is far too busy to be perfect.

Even if you only buy this book for the Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies' recipe (and that is an excellent reason to buy this book) you will soon find yourself making inroads into making your life a little more pretty and a little less pressured. Easy to relate to articles, fabulous pictures and not even a whiff of the eau de "we're so much more perfect than you" that can accompany similiar products.

I bought a copy as a present for a friend and when it came I found I had to immediately order another one as I did not want to part with it. My advice would be to buy two copies and save yourself the inconvenience of reordering. If you are buying for yourself you will know of at least one woman in your life that would love a copy and if you are buying for a present then you will find that you don't want to give it away!

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS MUST BE THE SEXIEST BOOK IN THE WORLD 27 Oct 2011
"Domestic Sluttery" is a thing of ABSOLUTE BEAUTY, from the wallpaper, polka dot and lace backgrounds, through the home, food, drink and lifestyle sections to the cute cowgirl font and delicious photography. This must be the sexiest book in the world. Packed with handy tips, NO female should be without. The perfect gift to yourself and to others of good taste and little time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 7 May 2013
As far as I'm concerned this is the bible! This book is intelligently written with beautiful photos to illustrate the text. It has everything from boozey cake recipes to how to haggle a brilliant bargain. Beautifully close attention to detail and it really pays off.

The writter and bloggers are fantastic and inspiring women and I cannot recommend this book enough!

Let's face it -- most of us probably get quite twitchy-fingered if they don't have access to the internet; especially if they're fans of Domestic Sluttery. This book is the perfect way to educate yourself to their lazily-sluttish ways, whether you're interested in fashion, cooking, home interiors or whatever else. But it works especially well if someone's not aware already of the site, I feel. It's the perfect stand-alone book, as it acts like a friendly older sister-type guide-book; holding your hand with whatever quandary you may have. But it won't tick things off your "to do list" for you, nor force your husband into remembering to make the bed each morning. I already tried :(

A great book to while away wet summer afternoons.

Some of it is a bid 'old hat' but 90% of it is a great read and a fun interlude
