Back to School: Ways to Organize Your Locker

            Hey everyone!  We don’t want to accept it, but school is coming up faster than we think.  Staying organized is one of the biggest things we need to do to succeed throughout the year.  Whether you’re in high school or grade school, you will most likely have a locker to be responsible for keeping it clean and organized.

              Chelsea Crockett - LockerFirst off, dividing and keeping your books in a certain spot each day is a good way to quickly know which book to grab before class.  Buying locker shelves or dividers are perfect for organizing your books, binders, and notebooks.  Click here to check out Amazon’s selection of locker accessories!  To help remember which books are which, try organizing them alphabetically, by color, or in order of your classes.  This will help you easily remember which books to throw in your backpack before class.  

            Another fun tip is to keep a small whiteboard on the side of your locker.  This way you can write notes, reminders, and needed homework for the next day or for what to take home.  Every once and a while remember to take out any old and unneeded homework or papers.  A cluttered locker leads to an unorganized one!

            Hope this makes going back to school a little easier!

                                                Love, Chelsea

Hey Insiders,

            Do you ever wish you were a famous, rich celebrity with a never ending bank account?  Yeah, that’d be nice.  While it is impossible to come up with a million dollars, coming up with a good amount of pocket change isn’t too hard.  Whether it’s for a shopping spree, vacation, paying someone back, or just for an investment, I’ll tell you some fun and easy ways to start saving your money!Chelsea Crockett- save up money jar

            Do you love to work out?  Well, for every workout you do put a dollar (or more if you’d like) in a jar.  Soon enough, you’ll see your hard work paying off.  You’ll have a good chunk of money and see how many workouts you’ve done.  It’s a win-win situation!!  Another great way to get money fast is to sell your old clothes.  Look for a resell-it shop near your area, like Plato’s Closet, and bring your clothes you don’t like or clothes that don’t fit you anymore.  Why keep them when you could get money for them?!

            Of course, if you have a job, the easiest way to save money is to put a portion of each paycheck away and don’t spend it!  It’ll pay off in the end.  Get to saving everyone!

Good luck,

            Chels

            Hey everyone!  Because the weather is so nice during this season, it’s perfect for outside activities.  Water parks, camping, and swimming are all perfect things to do during a hot, sunny day in the summer.  One thing you may have not thought of is the drive-in. 

            If you have a drive-in near you, it’s a perfect summer way to see that new movie you’ve been wanting to see.  Whether it’s with your family or your best friends, it’s a fun way to see the film.  My favorite thing about the drive-in is bringing a bunch of snacks for you and your guests to enjoy!  Popcorn, candy, and soda are perfectWink.Chelsea Crockett - Drive-In

            Maybe you can’t access a drive-in near you, but that’s okay!  There’s another creative way to spend your night!  If you take a projector and set it up facing a solid wall or possibly your garage you’ve made your own drive-in movie theater!  You can set out a few blankets or chairs and have a movie night right in your own yard!  Perfect!

            Hey girls!  With summer here, most of us will be traveling and doing some pretty exciting things.  I know I’m not the only one taking a ton of pictures and creating a lot of memories with my friends and family.

            To document these, I suggest keeping a summer journal!  If you travel a lot, writing down the places you go and the people you meet is a great keepsake and fun to look back at.  Any other exciting or memorable events you go to can be put in your journal as well.  You can print out your pictures, or develop them, and add them into your journal entry, too!Chelsea Crockett - Journal

            Another fun thing about keeping a journal is that you can design and decorate it exactly how you want to!  Whether it’s simple and plain or overwhelmed by stickers and glitter, you can decorate it whatever way suits you.  If you have a Polaroid camera, taking pictures on that and quickly adding them in your entry give it a vintage look and is an easier way to develop your pics!

            Usually journals are not very expensive and can be found at a nearby store like Target or Hobby Lobby.  Tweet or Instagram a picture of your Summer Journal and I’ll try and take a look at it! Enjoy!

Happy summer Insiders,

                If you’re like me you, then love late summer nights.  Hanging out with my girlfriends, making videos, and watching movies are just a few things that keep me up all night.  It’s always a great time, but I started losing more and more sleep.  I started looking into the benefits of sleep and now force myself to sleep more.  It’s SO good for you!!  The term “beauty sleep” is actually a real thing.  Getting 8-9 hours of sleep a night reduces dark circles under your eyes and reduces wrinkles.  Many studies also suggest that you will live longer.  Who doesn’t want that?!  As well as looking more beautiful and living longer, getting enough sleep can improve memory and creativity.  This can help with school or making YouTube videos, like meLaughingChelsea Crockett- sleep.  If you’re an athlete, it can help with your performance level.  If you’re not happy with your game, then get some sleep!  Along with all of these amazing benefits, getting enough sleep can help you maintain a healthy weight.  You’ll be more beautiful, fit, and have more attention with a good night of sleep.

                Goodnight 😉

 Hi Insiders!

            Chelsea Crockett- beach bagIf you’ve been following me on YouTube, then you know I just got back from Florida.  Florida is full of beaches and being prepared for a day at the beach is very important.  I love to carry a big beach bag full of activities and necessities for being out in the sun.  Of course, I’ve got a big beach towel to lay out on and dry off before heading back to the hotel.  Another great thing to keep in your beach bag is magazines.  They will keep you entertained while laying out and are just fun to read!  Sunscreen is an obvious must for a beach bag as well.  My favorite is Neutrogena Sheer Touch SPF 30 and Neutrogena Clear Face SPF 55 for my face.  It’s not oily, so you won’t have to worry about breakouts.  I also found this cool brush from Goody called the Quikstyle Paddle Brush that has small microfibers that act as a towel to dry your hair while you brush it.  It’s a great way to dry your hair without any tangles.  Last, I like to keep a small makeup bag with all the essentials, including concealer, SPF lip balm, and waterproof Chelsea Crockett- goody paddlebrushmascara.  To end my day in the sun, I like to wipe my face with Burt’s Bees toner.  It restores your skins natural PH levels and takes off any excess makeup, dirt, salt water, etc.  It’ll leave your face feeling clean after a day at the beach!

Love ya,

             Hey everybody!  With Father’s Day right around the corner, you’ll need to start thinking about gift ideas!  You can always go the easy route, but I’m going to give you a few ideas to make his gift meaningful and creative this year!Chelsea Crockett - Tie Cake

             One way to impress your dad is baking him sweets or a cake.  All over the internet, you can find cute ideas for cakes such as in the shape of a tie or a sports themed cake.  Cake pops and cupcakes are also a fun way to show off your baking skills.

           Chelsea Crockett - Grilling Accessories If your dad’s in to grilling, you can purchase grilling accessories such as grill spatulas or a thermometer.  If you’re interested in purchasing these, click here!  If he’s in to cooking, try buying him cook books with yummy recipes that he can make for the whole family!

            Instead of being the chef, maybe your father is a sports fanatic!  Buying him his favorite team’s jersey is a good, and not too expensive, way to make him smile.  If you have a higher budget, purchase a ticket or two to a baseball, football, or hockey game (whatever your old man prefersWink).

            Besides buying him a present, making him a homemade card is heartfelt and just as meaningful.  Be sure to write inside the card and tell your dad just how much he means to you.  He would probably appreciate that gift more than anything else!  So get creative and show your love for your dad this holiday!

            Hey lovelies!  The Fourth of July is coming up which is a time when my family comes together and eats… a lot!  Whether you’re hosting a BBQ or kicking back and watching the fireworks, you’re going to need a few yummy desserts to share with your friends and family.  There are endless possibilities of what fun and creative desserts you could come up with, but here are a few snacks that are easy to make.

            Chelsea Crockett - Fruit KabobsBecause summer is a time to stay healthy and fit, try making fruit kabobs.  Since Fourth of July is all about red, white, and blue, you can use strawberries, bananas, and blueberries to make your patriotic kabobs!

            Another fun treat to play around with is chocolate covered pretzels.  For this holiday, you can make them patriotic by dying white chocolate blue and red.  Then, dip the pretzels in each color and add red, white, or blue sprinkles!Chelsea Crockett - Chocolate Covered Pretzels

            A quick creative side dish to make is white chocolate dipped strawberries!  Dip them about halfway in the chocolate then add some blue sprinkles on the tips.  They’re extremely simple and fun!

Hi Insiders 🙂

                Have you ever reached for that bag of chips after a day out by the pool, but decided not to eat them because they are bad for you?  I do that all the time, except I usually eat a few…opps!  Summer is the best time to get your body in shape.  I’m going to give you a few healthy options for summer snacks to keep your body energized.  Your body will love you for it!  They are easy to prepare and tasty as well!ChelseaCrockett- Cucumber Sandwiches

                Crackers and cheese is always a quick option for a snack.  Crackers are full of carbs and really high in sodium.  A great alternative to crackers are cumber slices.  They are low carb and just as yummy!  Slice them thick or thin and enjoy with your favorite kind of cheese.

                Chelsea Crockett- Orange SmoothieAnother great snack or breakfast option is a smoothie.  Full of fresh fruit, juices, and yogurt, a smoothie will give your body all the nutrients it needs!  Adding a small handful of spinach will take your smoothie to a whole new level…and you can’t even taste it!  Click here for a handful of my favorite smoothie recipes!

                My last healthy option is whole wheat tortillas.  They can be used for a variety of snacks!  Spreading peanut butter and sliced bananas on a whole wheat tortilla and rolling it up makes for a sweet summer snack.  A great lunch option is adding your favorite deli meat and cheese to a whole wheat tortilla.  It’s much better for you than bread!  I hope you all can start snacking smart and being healthy!

            Hey ladies! Summer’s right around the corner and your summer body can be, too!  As I said in my “How to Prepare for Summer” video, getting and staying in shape isn’t hard at all with a little motivation and dedication!

            Eating right is one of the main steps in order to staying healthy.  Instead of potato chips, I recommend veggie chips!  They contain a far less amount of calories and are a healthy snack that tastes just as good.  If you like to cook, I suggest using almond or walnut oil in substitute to vegetable oil. Eat many fruits and vegetables and drink a lot of water!  It will help keep your face clear and keep you hydrated.  Water also energizes you because it absorbs the minerals and keeps them in your body for a longer amount of time.

            Chelsea Crockett - RunningThe biggest step to getting that summer body is exercise.  A few of my favorite exercises are jumping lunges, donkey kicks, sky jumps, and a few others which you can check out in the video below.  As for cardio workouts, try running, walking, or riding your bike.  They’re all great exercises that’ll shape you up for summer!

            That’s all there is to it insiders!  Get out there and get fit for summer!  Motivate yourself and don’t give up!

Hi Insiders!

            I know you’re all just as excited as I am for school to be over…summer is finally here, yay!! Laying out by the pool and hanging outside with my friends is a common occurrence in the summer time.  With the sun pounding down, it can get really hot laying outside for hours upon hours.  I’ll show you some of my favorite summer drinks and how to make them to beat the heat. Chelsea Crockett- watermelon lemonade

            Watermelon and lemonade are two of my favorite summer treats, so why not combine them?  Watermelon lemonade is delish and so easy to make! Using a food processor or blender, blend the watermelon until it is a smooth liquid.  Then, place the liquid through a strainer to remove the pulp.  If you want to make your own homemade lemonade, click here.  If you want to take the easy route, like meWink, then you can add the watermelon juice to a pre-maid lemonade or powdered lemonade you can mix yourself.  There you have it, refreshing watermelon lemonade!

            Another fun drink is Kool-Aid Sprite, otherwise known as “Magic Potion”.  Using an ice cube tray, pour your favorite flavors of Kool-Aid to make Kool-Aid ice cubes.  After the Kool-Aid is frozen, add them to your glass of Sprite.  While you’re out in the Chelsea Crockett- Magic Potionhot sun, the Kool-Aid will slowly melt.  Each sip will be a different flavor!  It’s an ever-changing drink.

                                        Have a great summer!

Dear Chelsea,

For skin that’s acne prone, what full coverage foundation do you recommend?

Xoxo,
Lisa

I definitely have personal experience with this one! This is a problem that a lot of teenagers struggle with. It is a very frustrating situation and it can make even the most confident person very insecure, so this is something that I am passionate about.

First of all, I would suggest that you target the problem head on. I truly believe that a good skin care regimen is vital in improving and maintaining good skin. I also feel that you can clean up the acne from within.  Having a good diet, lots of water and good sleep.

Good luck with whatever you choose and be confident. Confidence is the most attractive quality!

Hey Insiders!

I got to Disneyland on Thursday with my whole family. It’s my little brothers birthday this weekend, so my dad thought it would be a nice treat for the family. I even met up with some awesome YouTubers KrazyRayRay, Traci Hines, and CharismaStar and so many more.

I had a great time on the rides and walking around the park, but I think what I loved most of all watching my brother and sister being so happy. It was impossible to see everything, I can’t wait to go back again one day!

 

Love,
Chels
