            Hey darlings!  Blazers are one of my favorite articles of clothing that give off a sophisticated feel to your outfit.  They can be dressed up or even dressed down.  Finding a perfect outfit to pair with your blazer isn’t hard at all with a few helpful pointers!

  1. Throw on a blazer with your favorite pair of colored skinny jeans.  Adding a pop of color to any outfit is nice, but pairing them with a black blazer looks even better.  Although sophisticated, it still gives off a fun, young feel.Chelsea Crockett - Blazer w scarf
  2. Try adding a scarf!  Whether it’s colorful or black and white, adding this creates an older look and makes you look even classierWink.
  3. Crop tops!  Surprisingly, crop tops work with almost anything.  They provide a sleek look to your blazer and bring a chic and edgy feel to your outfit, as well.
  4. Last but not least, try pulling off a modern look.  Simply pairing your black blazer with jeans and a gray tee is super cute and easy.  Not to mention it’s also very casual so you can wear it almost anywhere!  Dress it up with heels or dress it down with flats, whatever works!

         There you go!  Grab a blazer here and start rocking your new looks!

            Hey insiders!  When it comes to joining a new school, I think of nerves and wanting to fit in.  Some of you may have moved to a new state and already have butterflies about the first day of class.  Others could be transitioning into high school or junior high.  Whatever it is, we all have those first-day-of-school nerves that we just can’t shake off!  Here are a few tips to help calm you down.Chelsea Crockett - School

            #1: Be yourself!  When it comes to making new friends, being yourself is the perfect way to find a group of friends that fit you.  This way you can have fun without trying to be someone you’re not.

            #2: Join clubs!  Whether it’s a volleyball or art club, you’ll be sure to find people with the same interests as you!  You’ll also have a fun time while doing it!

            #3: Don’t get into the wrong crowd!  If you ever feel yourself uncomfortable with your new group of friends, don’t feel the need to stay with it.  Peer pressure is an awful thing and it’s easier to get out in the beginning than trying to use the same excuses over and over again. 

            Joining a new school is not as nearly as bad as everyone thinks!  With these tips, there’s no need to be nervous.  Just be yourself and have fun!

Hi Girls,

            Celebrities are known for doing crazy things!  Whether it’s making headlines for a scandalous movie role or debuting a new look, celebrities are always in the news!  Lately, crazy hair trends and dramatic hair changes have been all the buzz in Hollywood.  I’ll break down Chelsea Crockett- colored hairsome of the craziest celebrity hair dos and hair trends around!

            Celebrities like Katy Perry are notorious for bright colored hair.  You never know what hair color is going to make its way down the red carpet.  I don’t recommend dying your beautiful hair to green, blue, or purple.  Plus, it’s terrible damage to your hair!  Another crazy hair trend is Bohemian braids.  This is when one side of your hair is tightly braided while theChelsea Crockett- short hair other side is down.  Kind of crazy looking! 

Miley Cyrus has been in the headlines for her dramatic hair change.  Her beautiful brown hair is no more!  Celebs, like Miley, have been chopping their hair off for a more “edgy” look.  How could you cut such beautiful hair?!  It’s fun to see all of these looks come to life in magazines and on the big screen, but not realistic.  Keep your pretty natural hair! Kiss

Love,

Change It Up: School Uniforms

Hi Lovelies,

            So I’m sure that many of you have school uniforms, especially if you go to a private school.  Even public schools have restrictions on what you can wear.  Sometimes it can be hard to show your individuality and express yourself through your fashion and style in a school setting.  I’ll give you a quick guide to bring your own style to school, without breaking dress code.

  • Have fun school accessories!  A fun backpack is a stylish way to carry your books.  Pick up a fun colored or printed backpack, like cheetah and carry your books in style!  It’ll also add a pop of color to even the dullest outfit.
  • Throw on an awesome pair of shoes!  Sandals and boots are my favorite shoes around.  They come in every style and color and some are even “blinged” out.  Everyone will be impressed with your new kicks!
  • Bling yourself out!  Don’t be afraid to throw on a pretty necklace and some crazy earrings to dress up your dull school uniform.  You canChelsea Crockett- backpack never go wrong with jewelry!

Throwing on a scarf can add a pop of color too!

I hope this little guide will help you bring your own individual style to a school uniform.  Remember, don’t break school code, but have fun with your style!

XOXO,

Hi Insiders,

            Unfortunately, school is coming up soon.  I am definitely starting to feel the back to school blues.  Between homework, sports, and clubs, it’s hard to find enough time for yourself during the day.  My stress level can get to an all-time high!  I’m going to give you a few tips to beat the back to school stress and enjoy your time more often.Chelsea Crockett- back to school

  1. It’s good to get involved, but not too involved.  As a student, everyone wants to be involved in everything.  Clubs and sports are so competitive these days that everyone wants to be the captain or president.  Many students join too many clubs or sports and seem to get over-whelmed between that and school work.  Try to pick and choose between what you join.  Give yourself time for homework and yourself.
  2. Don’t wait till the last minute to do homework or projects.  Just because you have a week for an essay doesn’t mean to wait until the night before.  That’s just calling for stress!  Do a few paragraphs a night or work 30 minutes a night on a project until the due date.  This way you won’t feel overwhelmed all at once!
  3. Stay organized!  As nerdy as it may sound, I love my planner!  If you use it correctly, you won’t forget about a project or event you have to do.  I promise it helps!

It’s cool to care about school and yourself.  Don’t let things get to you and cause you stress.  Be smart and enjoy your school year!

-Chelsea

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,

3 Secrets to Growing Your Hair Long and Strong

Hey darlings! Do you ever get frustrated with having short hair? Do you get tired of waiting months and months for it to grow to the length you want? Today…

Hey darlings!

Do you ever get frustrated with having short hair? Do you get tired of waiting months and months for it to grow to the length you want? Today I am going to fill you in on the three secrets of growing your hair long and strong! 

Tip#1:

Take vitamins! Vitamins give your hair strength which helps prevent breakage. When your hair starts getting split ends, it causes it to break off and get shorter. Vitamins also strengthen your immune system which promotes hair growth. A supplement I recommend is Biotin, which is a naturally occurring B-vitamin. It renews the follicles and roots of the hairs that are already growing. It gives you thicker, fuller, and healthier hair!

 Tip#2:

Drink lots of water! Drinking water increases the amount of moisture in your hair. Water makes up approximately one fourth of the weight of a strand of hair and when hair has the proper amount of water, it will respond by being strong and shiny. Also, Water is just plain healthy for you! By upping your water intake, you are making your body healthier, which will make your hair healthier.chelsea crockett water

 Tip#3:

Give yourself a scalp massage! By massaging your scalp, whether it is in the shower while you are shampooing or just sitting on the couch watching TV, Can increase the blood flow throughout your scalp and stimulate hair growth! chelsea crockett shampoo

So are you all ready to take the leap and try out these awesome tips? I know I am! Comment below and tell me which one of these tips you think will work best for your hair.

 

Love ya!

            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!

Summertime Skin Tips

            Hey ladies!  Keeping your skin healthy is a daily struggle for girls year round, but during the summer this task seems even more difficult.  As we all know, there are lots of products to try out on our skin to reduce unwanted breakouts.  But what we don’t know is that there are many things we can do in our everyday routine to reduce our imperfections.

            Chelsea Crockett - WaterSince it is summer, most of us will be spending the majority of our time outside in the high temperatures and hot sun.  Be sure to get very comfortable with H2O.  Water helps maintain the moisture in our skin and body.  Our body needs at least eight glasses of water to stay properly hydrated.  If you’re a soda or coffee drinker and need your daily boost of caffeine, you’ll need to triple the amount of water you drink!

            Because summer is a time for fun in the sun activities, make sure you apply (and reapply) sunscreen!  Some of us think we only need to apply sunscreen once and we’re set for the day.  But studies show that to have full protection, we must apply every hour and a half to two hours.  If we don’t, the result will be a sunburn.  Sunburns damage the molecules in our skin and produce redness, pain, swelling, and sometimes peeling.  Another negative is that they make you feel hot and tired, and who wants that?Chelsea Crockett - Exfoliating Skin

            Another quick tip is to exfoliate your skin.  Doing this gets rid of the dead skin on your face.  If you don’t get rid of it, it sets on your face making it look dry, dead, and dull. 

            Hope this helps you get glowing and healthy skin!

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 😉
