LA baby

I just got back from LA and i'am EXHAUSTED! my feet are killing me we walked overall a total of like 20 blocks it was totally worth it, def not like last year, Last year I came back home packed with samples and free magazines this year total twist it was the first day of west-week some showrooms weren't even ready it was really sad but I got to see a whole bunch of LA that i've never seen before so it was a new experience. I hate how people at showrooms treat students so badly, why? We are definitely the new generation of designers we are the future and one day they are going to be working for us, so why not start treating us the right way? Any ways as there is people who treated us badly, there are still some nice people around. Here are some of the pics I took, not all of them cause I took over 200!!!!
Acabo de regresar de Los Ángeles y estoy AGOTADA! mis pies me están matando caminamos en general un aproximado de 20 cuadras, valio totalmente la pena, definitivamente no fue como el año pasado, El año pasado volví a casa llena de muestras y revistas este año giro total que fue el primer día westweek algunas salas de exhibición ni siquiera estaban preparados era muy triste pero alcance a ver a un montón de LA que he nunca antes habia visto por lo que fue una experiencia nueva. No me gusta cómo la gente en salas de exhibición tratan a los estudiantes tan mal, ¿por qué? Definitivamente somos una nueva generación de diseñadores que son el futuro y un día van a estar trabajando para nosotros, ¿por qué no empezar a tratar con nosotros de la manera correcta? De cualquier forma, ya que es la gente que nos trató mal, todavía hay algunas buenas personas alrededor. Estas son algunas de las fotos que tomé, no todos de ellos porque me tomó más de 200!!/i> XO Aly M.

Last year i went to the pacific design center in los angeles let me tell you it was an adventure from head to toe!! first of all the bus left without us my friends mom had to take us all the way from san diego to los angeles. Once we got there we forgot about everything because that place is AMAZING its like an interior designer heaven! all types of showrooms furniture samples aah I love it after we where finished there we left to take the bus and it started raining but not like a drizzle actual rain cold strong rain the traffic was horrible and to get to the frank ghery walt disney music hall we had to walk like 3 blocks and it was pouring rain i was wearing flats and i had NO umbrella. overall it was a total adventure but it was totally worth it. this year i hope its a better experience. here are some pictures I took last year. xo Aly M

older DIY's

So, before i start blogging about my new DIY projects, im going to show you my very first diy, well, maybe not my first but the first i have pictures of.
It was my very first school project, they gave us this old mexican chairs painted with bright colors the paint was coming off and they weren't pretty to the eye anymore, so we had the challenge to change this chairs up the way we wanted.
My first idea was lady gaga why? i have no idea but it turned out to be exactly what i wanted it to be.
Here is the before picture it is how it looked before I gave it the huge transformation.

And here are the after pictures, you can totally see my inspiration was gaga, glitter mirrors, pointy silver things.
on the front of the chair i got inspired by lady gagas poker face mirror mask.
On the back of the chair I glued some pink glitter to it and it gave it color. The things on the legs are silver cardboard that i folded like this things i used to play with when i was younger and then painted them with silver acrylic paint.
