week 4 updates | 30x30 challenge

Sunday, April 26, 2015


Hey guys! So it's Sunday morning and at the moment, neither of us are anywhere near a computer. We're actually enjoying post-prom by the beach with friends but scheduled posts are amazing aren't they. Anyways, welcome to our second to last week of the 30x30 challenge!! We haven't been extremely diligent in recording our outfits because, to be frank, we suck. But it was definitely a fun challenge to take on and we'll be wrapping up the entirety of it next week via video. For now, enjoy the few outfits we managed to take photos of this week.

Love always, Ashley + Maya

Okay so it's Saturday night and we're actually at prom right now but we've put together so much content for you guys this week that we're flooding your newsfeeds with one post per day this entire weekend!! Anyways, I rented a Canon 6D to mess around with and use for taking prom pictures and we took a few outfit photos on them and the whole time, I could only scream about the bokeh and the incredibly sharp display. Please enjoy our outfits (also part of our 30x30 challenge) and expect posts in the prom series this upcoming week!

Love always, Ashley

prom makeup trends | prom 2015

Friday, April 24, 2015

The two makeup trends we're expecting to see at prom are pretty much inverses of each other. The first, seen in the first three pictures, is a neutral eye with a bold lip. This look flatters anyone and everyone, so if you're wanting something simple but striking - try it. The second look, the last three pictures, is a bold eye with everything else relatively neutral. I think this is stereotypically more "prom" but can be interpreted in many different, cool ways. 

As for us and our prom plans, well "So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into [prom.]"








Hopefully these looks inspire you all who are wearing makeup. And if not, let them inspire you and excite you regardless. 

Your friend, Maya
