As a uni student my fridge contained a six-pack of Vodka Cruisers, questionable smelling milk and leftover takeaway pizza. Fast forward 15 years and my fridge has undergone a makeover.
It’s now stocked with a variety of grown-up products, some of which get eaten and some of which end up thrown out because my grandiose culinary ambitions never quite get realised. Yes, many of the items weighing down my fridge shelves I could live without but there are a few staples that are absolute must-haves as I attempt to navigate this thing called adulthood.
After a stressful day in the office or a tantrum-filled day of kid wrangling, there is nothing better than collapsing on the couch to watch trash TV with a glass of wine or a sneaky champers. Wine time is my favourite time of the day, it means I’ve managed to keep the kids alive and not get fired for another 24 hours so I give myself a high five and crack open a bottle of quality sauv.

2. Body spritzer.
I certainly don’t bounce back from a big night like I used to. If wine time gets extra festive or a girl’s night out sees me Ubering home after midnight, a spritz of mineral water body spray usually helps me feel more human in the morning. Keeping my spray in the fridge makes it extra refreshing when I generously drench my eye bags, crows feet and PMS chin zits.
