About the Blog | The Daily Fuss was created by me, Jen Freeman- attorney, artist, wife, mother of one and self-proclaimed superconsumer - to bring something fresh and honest to the blogoshpere. To me, the term superconsumer speaks not to sheer volume of goods, but rather breadth and depth of the universe of goods consumed.
As an opinionated superconsumer and someone who rarely disconnects from technology, I felt obligated to share my opinions with anyone who cares to listen. The Daily Fuss is a collection of product reviews, life stuff and ever entertaining commentary through the eyes of a superconsumer and mom. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Superconsumer | In 2007, I married Ryan. Throughout my engagement, I became somewhat of an expert on all things bridal. I made my own announcements, invitations, place cards, menus, signs, favors and thank yous. I registered for and received wonderful gifts from friends and family that I will cherish forever. I dressed the bridal party and tasted cake. I planned the affair.
That same year we bought, renovated and decorated a home. In fact, much of the wedding preparation occurred in a gutted Chicago condo, with no working kitchen and unfinished floors. As soon as the honeymoon ended, we got down to business installing hardwood floor, trim, sinks, toilets, drywall, electrical ... everything. By the time we finished (nearly one year later) every single thing (paint, switchplate cover, lighting fixture, or any furniture) was brand new.
In 2009, we welcomed our daughter Leighton. She is an absolute joy, but it's no secret that babies require a certain amount of stuff. This year, we have a new house, new renovations, a yard and a little sis on the way.
With regard to products, if you can name it, we ("we" includes Luella our four-pound Yorkshire Terrier) have tried it.
After years of constant shopping and receiving an endless stream of packages, and because I always have an opinion, I am more than happy to share my musings on life and all of the glorious stuff that comes with it.
