Would you like to lend/receive a helping hand? Give a present (perhaps to yourself) that gives back?
I have always wanted to get better at:
. hemming pants and making old clothing new (p. 120, “Altered States”)
. constructing home-made gifts
. managing my finances (p. “Girls Just Wanna Have Funds”)
. hosting parties (p. 240)
. doing my laundry
. taking a vacation (p. 312, “There She Goes”)
…until the “Bust DIY Guide to Life” appeared, I hadn’t seen a publication that compiled all of the above topics and menneh-menneh more into one handy-dandy volume. This is the must-have gift item for the college aged (21+beyond) DIYer/mover&shaker trying to make it as a grown up person with grown-up responsibilities & a good sense of play.

Say you're a glamorous magazine writer with a serious Jimmy Choo habit, a weakness for five-star Balinese resorts, and a reputation for dating highborn British men. Then one day you find you're swooning over a most unlikely suitor, an Indian journalist who turns out to be a prince (of sorts), but whose family palace is falling to pieces, and whose intimidating mother, upon meeting you for the first time, examines your hair for dandruff. Would you run for the hills? Or would you soldier on for the sake of the man who just might be your soul mate?
