Meet Mady Maio
Each week, we check in with a different member of Thingtesting's community to ask what brands they've spotted, what they're testing, and take a peek into their recent reviews.

Hi, I’m Mady, the cofounder of social travel app, Camber, and the co-host of the Okay Sis Podcast. In my free time, you can find me reviewing romance novels on TikTok, drinking natural wine, and playing rummikub with friends.
I Am & Co makes these affirmation cards that are integral to my morning routine. I pick a card every morning that sets my intention for the day. They are my gentle reminders to get introspective for a moment.
Oat Haus. When I tell you I eat this granola butter out of the jar with a spoon…it’s THAT good. The brownie batter and vanilla flavors are *chef’s kiss.*
Four Sigmatic's Focus Blend powder makes me feel like the synapses in my brain are firing like crazy. I add it to my coffee every morning, and I find myself with sustained energy, sharpness, and boosted creativity. Anti-brain-fog.
Chillhouse's chill tips have completely changed my life. 1) I have saved a tooooon of money by not having to get my nails done. 2) They’ve introduced color and spice in my life that I would have never experimented with on my nails. 3) I have been converted to a lifelong press-on girlie.
SUPERDRIP is the answer to my prayers. Not only does this product help you sweat comfortably, but the whole brand is about destigmatizing sweating and making it cool.
Camber is a social and community-driven version of Google Maps, so community is in our DNA. We engage with our people over TikTok, our Los Angeles-specific newsletter, and our monthly events where we meet IRL to discover a new place in town.
Saturday is my exploration day. I typically find a bagel spot to try (like Belle’s Bagels in Highland Park) and then find a nearby coffee shop to read at. Right now, my favorites are Canyon Coffee and Highly Likely. Then, I’ll typically go to a new dinner spot in town with family or friends like Saffy’s or Heavy Handed. My weekends are reserved for food, coffee, and books.
I’m a romance novel enthusiast. In my free time, you can typically find me reading with a glass of natty wine nearby.
