Domestic Sluttery

£4.99

Product description

Have a gorgeous home while unapologetically cutting a few corners, with this home and lifestyle guide for women who have better things to do. Many women would love to have the domestic goddess thing nailed, to waft around vintage fairs for collectible items to furnish their homes with, and to be able to spend all day preparing the ultimate dinner party-but this lifestyle guide accepts that women are too busy to make their lives "just so." However that doesn't mean that their homes aren't important, and the domestic sluts cover home interiors ("Hang your prettiest dresses from hooks on your bedroom wall, it'll give an instant boudoir feel." "Hide anything super-boring."), food and drink ("Pasta is the domestic slut's secret weapon." "Mmm, honey. Who knew something puked up by an insect could be so delicious?"), style and beauty ("Thou shalt not listen to thine mother."), and living (Vacation suggestions from Sicily to New York. What to do when you realize you're still drunk at work.) No Stepford Wife aspirations here, instead, this guide offers an aspiration to live life to the full but with permission to be imperfect. Instead of compromising on fun, the domestic sluts will teach readers the quick and easy ways to do domestication on the go, as well as revealing how to make a damn good cocktail. Includes dual measurements. This hardback 2011 edition is in a good, used condition. There are a few scratches on the pictorial boards, but otherwise the book is clean, bright and beautifully illustrated throughout in full colour.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
