DIY or DIE .




sunday was the much blogged about DIY or DIE event at Urban Outfitters. 

In my attempt to look nice the sun and heat decided they would get together and ruin that for me.
 By the time I got off the subway my hair was flat and my makeup was running. im begging fall comes sooner then later.

The tutorials were short and sweet. For the 5 of us pretty much just "winging it" i think everyone did really well. 
We had no run through and I dont know about the other girls but I have never done a "how to" in front of an audience. 
So , being the comiedian that I think I am , I used alot of quick whit and humor. 
I did a short 6 minute run through on distressing and adding pieces to denim. 
It definetly went a lot quicker then expected and I hope everyone left with a little more knowledge on DIYing
( or at least one of the gift bags thanks to Urban )

thank you to everyone that came out - it was great to meet the other bloggers & winners of the contest as well as make new friends
( mel , email me those photos ! helen - call me this week x )
