 Flip flops can be surprisingly expensive sometimes, especially if they have a pattern or design.  They are the perfect summer shoe and can be thrown on with any outfit for an effortless look.  Creating your own flip flop masterpiece is a fun activity for the summer!  I will give you the step by step process for designing your own flip flops right at home.  It’s super simple!  Let’s go!Chelsea Crockett- diy flip flopsChelsea Crockett- diy flip flops

            All you need is a pair of plain colored flip flops (I recommend light colors), painters tape, and different colored sharpie markers.  Let your imagination run wild with the colors and pattern you would like your flip flops to be.  Right now, I really love the chevron print.  Place your flips flops in front of you and start taping your design.  For the chevron print, break apart small pieces of tape and make a zigzag pattern.  Make sure to space everything out evenly.  Once the design is created, start coloring in between the tape with your favorite colored markers.  Have fun with this part!  Let the color dry for about 10 minutes and then tear off the tape.  Now you’ve got your own pair of flip flops you designed yourself!

Have fun,

How to Make Your Eyes Pop

          Hi girls!  One of the most attention-catching parts of your face is your beautiful eyes.  From blue to brown to hazel, your eyes can always sparkle if you know the right colors and shades to use. 

          For the baby blues out there, use navy or grey shades of eyeliner to highlight your eyes.  Those colors allow your eyes to reflect off the eyeliner and show off the blue hue in your eyes.  As far as brown eyes go, try out dark brown or black eyeliner which will bring a fiercer feel to them.  Try to remember to outline the eyes but not to go to thick and dark with black eyeliner.  And of course I couldn’t forget about the green/hazel eyes.  For you, try light brown or green colored eyeliner.  This will bring out the brown or green in your sparkling hazel eyes.Chelsea Crockett - Eyes

          To add an even more defined look, curl your lashes with an eyelash curler.  This will give them a little extra lift before adding on your favorite mascara.  Concealer is another product to use slightly below your eyes.  Getting rid of those dark circles will help others focus on your eye color and pop!  Hope this helps!

Along with warm weather and hours of sunshine, summer brings along an endless amount of yummy, seasonal treats!  Although you can eat it year-round, ice cream tastes best when you’re by the pool or at a carnival.  Summer is also a time to show your creative side and try new things.  So why not try whipping up your own batch of ice cream?Chelsea Crockett - Ice Cream

          Homemade ice cream is pretty simple to make.  Plus, it provides an activity for you and your friends to do at home!  To make this happen, you’ll need 1 cup of milk, a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 4-6 tablespoons of rock salt, 2 trays of ice cubes, a small amount of butter, and 5 teaspoons of flavored syrup.  If you prefer chocolate ice cream, then add one tablespoon of cocoa powder.  To start off, take a quart-sized plastic bag and pour in the sugar, flavoring, and milk.  Then you’ll need your rock salt and ice, preferably crushed.  Put these into a gallon-sized bag and place your quart-sized bag into this one.  For fifteen to twenty minutes, gently shake and message the bag.  After this, remove the ice cream and enjoy!

It’s summer vacation! Just saying it makes me so happy J. I don’t know about you, but where I live it gets reaaally hot and humid during the summer. I saw this recipe the other day and decided to try it, and I was instantly in love! Today I am going to teach you how to make a super cool, refreshing, and healthy treat for those days when you can’t seem to cool down!

exps32576_CW952730D46

What is this treat I am describing? Watermelon sorbet of course! This is how you make it:

 You will need:

                        3 cups of watermelon
                        ¼ cup lemon or lime juice  

                        ½ cup water

                        ¼ cup sugar

                        A blender

 

What you do:

A couple hours (I recommend 3 or 4) before you plan to make the sorbet, cut up your watermelon into chunks. Put them in a large Ziploc bag and then put the bag in your freezer. Try and lay the bag flat and spread the watermelon evenly so they freeze faster. Next, after your watermelon has been freezing for 3 or 4 hours, boil the water, sugar, and lemon or lime juice until the sugar has dissolved. Then let this mixture cool to room temperature. Next, put your frozen watermelon and water mixture into your blender and blend it up! Make sure you blend it until it is a smooth consistency and there are no chunks. After that, pour your mixture into the bowl or container you will be serving or storing it in. Put this container in the freezer for another 2 hours, just to make sure your mixture is nice and firm before you serve it. Viola! Delicious, healthy relief from the summer heat. You can eat this sweet treat without feeling guilty because it has barely any sugar and it is all fruit!

     Just a quick tip for serving: if you are having a hard time scooping the sorbet, run your         spoon under warm water before scooping it out.

I recently saw this tutorial on Pinterest and thought that this so cute and creative! What is really unique about this DIY is that it is totally customizable! What do I mean? You can put whatever quote, verse, or lyric you want on it! On my shirt, I used the quote “When you feel like you’re drowning in life, don’t worry, our lifeguard walks on water.”

 What you will need:

–          Elmer’s Blue Gel glue (It HAS to be the blue kind, or it will not work!)

Chelsea Crockett watermark tee

–          Fabric dye

–          White cotton tee

1. Wet your tee with cool water and place a board between the layers of the shirt, like the lid of a tub.

2. Start drawing! Take the glue and write your favorite verse or quote across the front of the shirt. Pinterest is a great place to find quotes, too! Let the glue dry completely. This may take a few hours!

4. Prepare your tub of dye. Use cool water to make it, and remember that the color that comes out of the tub of dye will be a couple shades darker than your finished shirt! When you get the color you want, lay your tee out flat to dry.

5. When your tee is completely dry, soak it in cool, soapy about 15 minutes. This washes out the extra glue. Toss it in the washer and dry as you would normally!

 

I have found that these tees make great gifts to friends! Do you have a song that you and a friend call “your song”? Then slap the lyrics on one of these tee’s and give it to them for Christmas! They will love it, and it will mean so much to them that you made it!

You all know I love dry shampoo. I am pretty sure that it is one of the best inventions to hit the beauty market. It helps dry up the oils in your hair so that it doesn’t look greasy, and it can help your hair hold a tease! Dry shampoo can sometimes be expensive and can cause product buildup on your hair. I found a DIY recipe for dry shampoo and got so excited. You can make this stuff for less than 2$ a bottle! You cannot beat that!

Recipe for dark hair:

  • 1/4 cup Cornstarchtumblr_mljrehPMNC1qdwkufo1_1280
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa
  • 5-10 drops Essential Oil (e.g. Pink Grapefruit, Lavender, etc.)

Mix all of these ingredients together in a small bowl. My suggestion is that you put the ingredients into an old spice bottle because the spice bottles have holes in the lids so you can sprinkle the dry shampoo on your roots easier.

     Recipe for light hair:

  • 1/4 cup Cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup Baking Soda
  • 5-10 drops Essential Oil (e.g. Pink Grapefruit, Lavender, etc.)

Do the same exact steps as in the first recipe. You can use a makeup brush to apply the powder to your scalp as another application option.

 Now we all know that scarves are a great accessory to go around your neck.  Whether it’s to keep you warm or dress up a look, a scarf is an item that every girl must own!  One of the greatest things about scarves is that they have more than one purpose.  I’m going to break down some creative ways to wear your scarf…..the possibilities are endless!

            Chelsea Crockett- braid scarfWho would’ve thought that a scarf would be a great hair accessory?  Start by putting the scarf around your head and tie it behind your hair.  Pull all of your hair, including the left over strands of the scarf, to one side.  Start braiding your hair into a long braid, incorporating the ends of the scarf into your braid.  This will add a pretty pop of color in your long, beautiful braid!  It’s such a fun way to brighten any look.

            Another unique way to wear a scarf is to turn it into a bracelet.  If you have three small square scarves, lay them all side by side and tie all three together at the end.  Start braiding the three scarves together until the braid is complete.  You could even braid in a strand of “bling”!  Tie it around your wrist and there you go!  It’s that simple!   Hope you’ll try out these two different ways to wear a scarf.  Show off your creation to your friends!Chelsea Crockett- Scarf Bracelets

Do any of you brush your hair in the morning and feel like you are losing entirely too much hair? I know the feeling. When you start shedding hair, it is obnoxious! I find my hair EVERYWHERE! My parents do too :P. What I didn’t know is that you can use coffee to stop your hair from shedding! You can use any caffeine product, actually, because caffeine blocks the hormone responsible for hair loss, dihydrotestosterone (try saying that 5 times fast!). Want fuller, thicker hair? Try a coffee rinse!

How to do a coffee rinse:

coffee

1.Brew your coffee and let it cool. How much you will need will depend on how long and thick your hair is.

2. Rinse your hair with water to get it wet and then squeeze the excess water out. Using a pitcher, pour the coffee over your hair while using a second bowl to catch the excess coffee. Pour the coffee that you have caught in your bowl over your hair, catch the extra again, and then pour it over your hair once more for a total of 3 rinses.

3. Let the coffee sit on your hair for a few minutes and then rinse it out. If you have lighter hair, then do not leave the coffee in as long because it can discolor your hair a bit!

4. Shampoo and condition as you usually would.

 

Try this awesome rinse and let me know how it works out for you!

I adore scarves. There is nothing better than a stylish scarf to top off any ensemble! The only problem with them? They are a pain to store! Well, not anymore! I have a handy dandy tip to help make storing your stylish scarves a breeze!

What you will need:

 –          Your favorite scarves

011edit

–          Some hangers

–          Shower curtain rings

That is all you will need! Just take the plastic shower curtain rings and hook them around the bottom of the hanger. Then, loop your scarf through the ring! Easy peasy! You can fit about 6/7 scarves on 1 hanger, so if you are a scarf hog like me and have more than 7, just make another hanger! These handy scarf hangers are great because they fit easily inside your closet or on a hook on the wall, and they are so so cheap to make!

If being more organized was on your list of New Year’s resolutions, then this is a great place to start!

How To Tuck Non-Skinny Jeans into Boots

Have you ever had the cutest pair of jeans and wanted to wear them with boots, but you couldn’t because the jeans weren’t skinny jeans and wouldn’t fit into your boots? This problem can easily be solved! With this simple trick, you can take your favorite pair of bell-bottom or wide-legged pants and turn them into skinny jeans! All you will need is your favorite pair of jeans, a smashing pair of boots, and some high socks.

How to tuck them:

1. Pull on your favorite pair of jeans. The tighter around the thighs and knees the better!

2. Roll up the legs of your jeans into a nice cuff. the cuff should come up about 5 inches. After you have cuffed the jeans, pull the cuffs tight around your legs. There should be some extra material once you have pulled the cuffs tight, so you need to take the extra and fold it over the tightened cuffs. Make sure to hold all of this tight, because that is what is making your jeans into skinny jeans.

3. Now that you have the cuffs pulled tight and the extra material folded over it and tightened, put on your high socks and pull them up over the folded cuffs to hold them in place. Now slip on your boots and make sure that your socks are not sticking out and that your jeans are not bunching. If neither of those things are happening, then you are totally good to go!

Now that you know how to transform any pair of jeans into skinny jeans, the possibilities are endless!

Hooray for scarf season! Because this chilly yet awesomely fashionable season is upon us, I thought that it would be appropriate to give y’all some ideas on how to tie your scarves in a few different styles so you are not stuck wearing it in the same old loop all of the time!

The first way that I am going to teach you is for scarves that have tassels or pretty trimmings. First, you place the middle of the scarf at the front of your chest and hold the two ends with your hands. Take the two ends and criss-cross the ends of the scarf in the back. Next, bring the ends back around and tie them in the front. This style is super cute and gives off a kind of western vibe because it looks a little like a kerchief around your neck.chelsea crockett scarf

The second way is to make your own infinity scarf out of a regular scarf. Just tie the ends of your scarf together and viola! Most times regular scarves are cheaper than infinity scarves, so just make your own! Infinity scarves are so trendy and warm!chelsea crockett infinity scarf

The last way is to make a half bow out of your scarf. Adorable, right? Start with a scarf centered around the back of your neck. Make a loose knot on one side of the scarf near your collarbone. Leave a keyhole in the knot. Grab the other side in the middle and slide the middle through the keyhole, creating a loop. Tighten your original knot and fluff the one-sided bow!chelsea crockett bow scarf

Now go out and rock those fab scarves, ladies!

Christmas is coming! Prepare yourself for all things red, green, and peppermint flavored. You also need to start thinking about what kind of decorations you are going to Christmas-ify your houses with! I have a super easy, super fun way to add your own touch of personality to your decorations this Christmas!

What you will need:

-Clear glass ball ornamentsChelsea crockett ornaments

– Black Sharpie markers

That’s all you will need! I got my glass ornaments at Walmart for 3$.  For this fun DIY you just draw patterns on the glass ornaments with the Sharpies in whatever way you want. I recommend cleaning the ornaments before you draw on them, because all of the dirt and oils that are on them can make the Sharpie not want to stick to the ornament. Some examples of patterns that I drew are below! I went with a tribal sort of theme, but you can do whatever you please! That is the cool thing about this craft, you can totally customize it and make it your own! You can hang these spunky ornaments on your tree, put them in a bowl as a center piece, or even use them to decorate your mantle! The possibilities are endless! And you are going to be SO proud when you get to tell people that you made them yourself!

Comment below and tell me what you would put on YOUR ornaments!

Are you into the “rustic” look? Do you want to make your house look a little more like fall? Are you looking for some simple Thanksgiving decorations? Then read on! Today I am going to teach you how to make some classy, rustic decorations that will spruce up any Thanksgiving décor. If you are artsy or crafty, then you will love this fall themed DIY. It is super easy and practically free!

What you will need:

–          A glass container of some sort. You can even use the old glass from a candle.

–          Any kind of twigs or sticks. Go to your back yard or a park and collect sticks of any shape or size.7adbb978e7e47463f323e766f3b987af

Make sure that your glass container is clean and dry, or the glue will not stick. Cut the sticks so they are at assorted lengths. You can clean the sticks a bit so that the dirt doesn’t keep the twigs from sticking to the glue. Use hot glue to stick the twigs to the glass in a vertical fashion. Alternate the twig lengths and sizes so that it looks more natural. Once you have finished, you can use the decorations as candle holders, or you can just set them around your house to give it a more rustic, fall themed.

Happy fall!

XOXO, Chels

            Hi everyone!

            It’s officially fall and we all know what that means!  Spooky costumes and creepy get-ups are a necessity for trick-or-treating or Halloween parties.  Since I am a beauty guru, I’m going to show you a few looks you can pull off using makeup this holiday.

            First off, I recently put up a video showing how I transformed my little brother into a zombie.  For a tutorial on the look, go to my YouTube channel and watch the video entitled “Zombie Makeup Tutorial!”  This makeup is perfect for any boy, or girl, that wants to have a scaretastic costumeJ.

            Another fun idea for some of my younger fans is a scarecrow.  For this look, all you need is some black eyeliner, orange face paint, and red lipstick.  To start the process, take your eyeliner and draw a line extending from the corners or your lips to the bottom of your ears.  Then draw a triangle on the tip of your nose.  Throughout the lines, make dash marks to give the effect of stitching that any scarecrow should have.  Fill in the triangle on your nose with orange face paint.  While using the face paint, make two circles on the centers of your cheeks.  Lastly, take your eyeliner and draw squiggly lines coming fromChelsea Crockett – Fairy beneath your eyes almost like sun rays.  Finish it off with your red lipstick and you’re complete!

            Chelsea Crockett - FairyFor my girly-girls out there, a fairy look is just right for a Halloween get-up!  To pull this off, create your own kind of swirls coming from your eyes.  If you’re confused, check out the example to the left.  Make sure you use a lot of glitter and rhinestones.  Nothing says fairy more than a bunch of sparkle! 

            I can’t wait to see how they all turn out!

                                                           Happy Halloween! -Chels
