Lucie Fink Learns To DIY Blog With Sam Ushiro Of Aww Sam  | Lucie Fink Take Over Week | Refinery29


Thursday is all about DIY and Instagram art. I hung out with the lovely lady who runs the
Instagram account called @aww.sam. And calls herself an industrial designer and
a donut aficionado. Same. If you can’t seem to wrap your head around
what that means just head over to her Instagram page and you will pick up her vibe instantly. I post a lot of my content on my blog and
that’s where it kind of where all the How To’s and the photos, the step-by-step
photos live. That’s like the first priority. And then from there, the blog photos can go
onto Instagram. Well you can see behind me, it’s very colorful, very fun, energetic. I went to her apartment today to do her thing
with her and I’m not lying when I say that her entire apartment looks just like her Instagram feed. A ton of props. Fun, colorful knickknacks everywhere. It is beautiful. That didn’t look as comfortable. That’s about as low as I go. She has a crazy couch filled with DIY emoji pillows. Did you make all of these? No, but a lot of them I did. I made that one. You definitely made this. Yup. My backdrops are over here. So this is what I use for all the photos. Are these DIYs too? Yeah, those were one of my first projects
ever. And although her job looks fun and glamorous
all the time, it is important to remember how much hard work goes into this. A lot of times people will ask me, “Is it
all fun and games? Like all the time? Confetti and parties?” It’s not like that at all. It’s probably the hardest job I’ve ever had. This went live this morning. We styled some avocados for her blog. So it’s kind of like the lighting right
now is kind of lower, so I might use a light or something. Yeah, so this is a little camera button. But if I have to need both hands for the photo,
I have to press this with my foot. It is all DIY in that she manages herself,
she comes up with her own ideas, runs her social platforms like a business. And I usually take things like a lot further
away so I do have room to crop. I usually leave a little bit of white so I
can color balance. And then we even did a photoshoot of me using her props. Whoa! You have a hundred pink jackets. And there’s a lot of fur pink ones. It was like my year of fur. Can I try one of these on? Yeah. Which one should I wear? I don’t know take your pick. This one is the craziest one. If you want to try it on. That’s the one. That one’s insane. I’ve worn it once because it kind of devours
me, but it’s definitely a muppet coat. Wow! It’s beautiful! It really goes with my outfit. It’s actually a kid’s coat. Oh my gosh. Hello? You think this would be a great bracelet? For me, my feed has always been a place for
people to come and get their happiness for the day. It was such a colorful and inspiring day. And if any of you follow me on Instagram,
you’ll see that of the people I met with so far this week: Sam’s aesthetic is definitely
most closely linked with my Instagram aesthetic is. So clearly, I was very inspired. Now I’m off to go take some pictures of
sprinkles. Because I just don’t know what else to do with
my life. Thanks for watching Thursday, to move onto

  8. I love the look of the stuff you make but I have one thought, do you have an engineering degree? Because that is what makes you an INDUSTRIAL designer. Other wise you are just a designer. No offence but it creates a lot of issues for industrial design studies.
