Desperate Housewife? Not after this course in perfecting the art of lazy lunches and bawdy brunches. What's much more fun than going to work? Not going to work. That's not to say you don't contribute. In fact, your mere presence is your contribution. You can't cook, of course, but you sure look cute in an apron. You can't always hold your dirty martinis (they usually get a good hold on you), but you throw a fabulous cocktail party.
Throughout, you'll discover decadent tips to get you what is rightly yours to enjoy:

  • Invest in an air freshener. If you didn't clean today, then why does it smell so damn good in here?
  • Wear lingerie-It will be far more difficult for him to stay mad!
  • Consider tricking a more domestically inclined friend into cooking for you; thank her by sharing martinis.
  • Always carry a fabulous designer handbag: Borrow, rent, or steal as necessary.

  • Jam-packed with ingenious tips and how-tos, this little book makes a great bridal shower gift! Any woman can learn how to live lavishly, pampering herself in every way-while keeping her man wrapped around her finger.

    Meet the Author

    Rosemary Counter studied English Literature and Women's Studies at the University of Toronto, where she learned a keen sense of irony and how to write a kickass paper without reading the book. She's since moonlighted (with various levels of success) at a million different jobs-from fashion buying to television lackey to telemarketing and of course table-waiting (her most hated of all jobs). Problems with authority and a complete inability to learn a menu led her to freelance writing, where her work has been featured in Elle Canada, Chatelaine and The Globe & Mail. Somehow between baths and daytime television, she completed The Decadent Housewife, her first book.
