Domestic Sluttery is a daily newsletter that makes your life more fun, more beautiful, more delicious and more interesting. Like the original blog, we are tongue-in-cheek, funny and informative – we take our pleasure seriously and we embrace our imperfections. We brighten up every day with our favourite things: design, food, fashion, travel and excellent women past and present.

Meet Team DS

Sian Meades regularly writes for MADE.COM, The Simple Things and The Times. She’s finishing up her novel about women in 1950s London and is halfway through an MA in Modern and Contemporary Fiction at Westminster University. She has never turned down a chicken wing and firmly believes the Piña Colada to be the greatest cocktail ever made.

Laura Brown is a freelance writer and editor, noted Jeff Goldblum enthusiast, and scotch egg superfan. She worked in the magazine industry for 11 years, most recently as Editor-in-Chief of the Beano and, before that, Editor of Shout. She wrote Sluttery Sales Spy and masterminded incredible gingerbread creations for the original Domestic Sluttery blog.

Our previous food writers have been Laura Hounsom, Nicola SwiftOlivia Potts and Deepa Mistry. Our newsletters look amazing thanks to super design duo Nick Smith and Jess Love of Two Agency (yes, that Nick). The header image above is by Seth Doyle.

We’re hiring

Sian has recently gone back to university to do a literature MA and we need help with the cooking! We’re looking to take on food writers to create recipes for Thursday’s food edition for the next three months while she’s learning about London and Modernism.

Interested? Make sure you’ve read a few of the relevant issues first and then send us an email telling us more about you and your recipe ideas, along with a couple of photos of your food. Please note that we’re only after specific recipes pitches at the moment and we don’t need any series suggestions. We read every single pitch but we’re a small and busy team and can’t promise a quick response. We pay our writers and we work remotely – we’re on opposite ends of the country – but you’re very welcome to come over for a cuppa.


Domestic Sluttery and Gadabout Publishing have recently featured in Myslexia, Metro, Obsessory and The Telegraph.


In the first instance, we recommend that you use our main email address: [email protected]. You can also email us individually – [email protected] or [email protected].

We read every single email we get. Please, for the love of god, don’t copy in every email address.

Laura and Sian are both represented by Jemima Forrester at David Higham Associates. Please email Jemima directly for anything book related: [email protected].

DSHQ has just moved, please contact us for a postal address!

Did we mention social media? Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest.


Sometimes we receive products to review, or get invited to events and do cool things that we don’t pay for. This is great fun but an invitation or something in the post doesn’t mean we’ll write about something, we’re pretty fussy. We’ll tell you when we’re writing about something we didn’t pay for.

We use affiliate links in some of our content and on social media. We work with ShopStyle and Skimlinks as well as Amazon Affiliates. This means that occasionally if you buy something we write about, or do some window shopping after clicking, we might earn a bit of commission from the retailer. This doesn’t cost you anything and it means that we can continue to write about the things we love.
