Thanks for all the Gin


Now that we've reminisced, got nostalgic, celebrated the last five and a half years and maybe had a bit of a cry, there’s just one last thing for us to do before we go and that’s thank our brilliant readers.

Thank you to all of you for commenting on our posts, buying the brilliant things that we've written about, helping us to champion brilliant independent designers. Thank you for recreating our recipes each week. Thank you for telling us what you’re up to on and telling us about your weekend adventures and what you’ve had for your tea.

Thank you for helping us raise over £10,000 for charity and for coming to our picnics, blogging panels and events. Thank you for buying our book, for telling your friends about us, for arguing with us, for recommending your favourite shops and designers, for being part of Domestic Sluttery. Thank you for making us want to work hard to create the best site we possibly could.

Finally, thank you for your kind and thoughtful messages this week. We're tried to reply to as many as possible and we've read every single one. They’ve meant so much to all of us and we really do know how much the site means to you. We hope you know how much our readers mean to us, you’ve helped make Domestic Sluttery everything we hoped it could be.

Goodbye for now,
Sian, Frances, Gemma, Kat, Sara, Laura B, Laura H, Katie, Alice and of course, Cocktail Nick.

PS - Thanks to Nana B Agyei on Flickr for this brilliant party popper image. We've opened the champagne and we'll be raising a glass to all of you this evening.

  3. I bloody loved those panels. Thank you to Sian, Frances and all the readers for letting me get wildly carried away and not remove my microphone or make me stand in a corner. This has been the most wonderful three years, and I can't wait to see what everyone does next. (Sluttery South dinner, I is hopeful).

  11. Thanks for delighting me with your articles, inspiring dinner parties, cocktails with friends, books to snuggle up with and the Friday bargains that have opened up so many new places to order goodies from. Thanks mostly for the snorts of laughter that make my better half jump out of his shirt while I read Domestic Sluttery. I will miss you all. Let us know of any future projects. Good luck!

  20. This was the first blog I read on a regular basis and though others have come and gone, DS has been a constant source of booze, cakes, lovely things and sparkly unicorns. I'm gutted that you're closing and will miss this weird, funny, warm corner of the Internet so very much. Good luck for the future, you magnificent sluts!

  27. So sad to see the site go. I've been inspired, amused and distracted from work by you lot! Please preserve the site: it's my shopping list and general encyclopaedia for a fun life. And all strength and good wishes to you all in your next plots and projects!

  28. Dearest DS Team,
    I should have realised after 7 days no new post that something was up, but I was oblivious until it finally clicked today - NOOOOO! So sad to hear these news but excited for all and their new ventures. Since DS I have a favourite bar that not even Karl Lagerfeld could compete with! Thank you for all the tall girl posts and Friday Sales spy posts, on many occasions I maanged to assemble the best weekend outfit because of you!
    Auf wiedersehen Pets!
