             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 girls!  We all know how much I love trying out new hairstyles and what’s a better time than summer?  Whether you wear it up or down, there’s always a cute and stylish way to show off those beautiful locks!

            One of the first looks I go to is the messy or high bun.  They’re easy to throw up and work with any outfit.  One of the best things about a bun is that it’s okay for them to look messyWink.  Just throw it up and wear it how you want!

            Another one of my on-the-go styles is a side braid.  Along with being super easy, you can make it your own by doing the many different styles there are.  Fishtailing and French braiding are just a couple ideas on how to make your braid fun and unique!

            Chelsea Crockett - Beach WavesLast but definitely not least, are beach waves.  I absolutely love this look because it gives off the summer feel and adds the beachy look to your sun kissed tan.  At almost any beauty salon you can find a spray to help give you that ocean air vibe.

            These are just a few summer styles for you to try out this season! Hope this helps!

Happy summer Insiders!

                Summer is the time for vacation!  I’m sure most of you go to the beach or travel somewhere fun with your family or friends.  I’m traveling toChelsea Crockett- swimsuit Florida and California this summer, I’m so excited!  Along with traveling comes the stress of packing.  I’m going to give you a few quick tips for easy packing.

                I’m sure you all could guess that I’m not a light packer.  I basically pack my whole closet; but there are a few essentials that every suitcase must contain.  It will make choosing outfits easier.  A swimsuit is an obvious must!  A great, cheap place to find cute swimsuits is Target.  They have a huge selection, you’ll be sure to find a cute suit.  An oversized beach towel will add to the look and save you a spot in the sand.

                Chelsea Crockett- neon shortsAnother summer packing essential is neons.  Everyone is wearing bright colors this summer!  Whether it’s a pair of neon shorts or a neon blazer, pairing these items with a solid white or black tee with give your outfit an edge.  Breezy sundresses for the beach are always an essential.  They are easy to wear and super comfortable.  They also don’t take up much room in your suitcase!  You can dress it up or down with jewelry, heels, or sandals.  However you rock your dress, it will be sure to turn heads.

                My last packing essential is a cute pair of sunglasses.  The “Ray-Ban” and aviator style sunglasses are really in right now.  Forever21 is a great place to find sunglasses.  Some are even under $5!  Hope you all have a wonderful summer!

Hello lovelies!

                Waterproof makeup is a must for summer!  You won’t want your makeup running everywhere if you’re at the pool or the beach.   I’ve found some great drugstore products that won’t go anywhere in the water.  You’ll stay looking beautiful even after a dip in the pool.  CoverGirl Natural Luxe Cream Foundation is a great base foundation that won’t come off in the water.  Your skin will look smooth and clean, while being protected from the sun.

                Maybelline has a ton of choices when it comes to waterproof makeup products.  You can find these products at any drugstore for great prices.  Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eye Shadow comes in every color imaginable and is stay proof and water proof for 24 hours.  I like to apply a white base to my eye lid before applying the eye shadow.  Choose any color you want!  I like to use an aqua blue under my eye for a pop of color.  It’s a great look for summer!  

                Chelsea Crockett- Waterproof MascaraAnother must-have for waterproof makeup is waterproof mascara.  My favorite mascara to use is Maybelline Volum’ Express Mega Plush mascara.  It takes your lashes to a whole new level by lengthening them and giving them great volume.  You’ll come out of the pool looking like you walked off the runway!

         Happy summerCool

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!

Hey Insiders!

I love shoes. They can take an outfit from being just average to being jaw dropping. They put the finishing touches on any ensemble. Today we are going to take a look at what summer shoes are a must for any wardrobe.

     Flip Flops:

Flip flops come in so many different colors and styles that you are bound to find at least one pair that you fall in love with and that goes with everything. Whether they are silver and sparkly or neon pink with studs, you can always find a pair that suits you. Flip flops are also super comfy.  They are usually cheap, too, so you can buy a pair for every outfit 😉 Collage

     Wedges:

Wedges add class to any ensemble. They come in all heights and styles! You can get anything from peep toed to strappy sandal-like wedges. They come in anything from tribal prints to sweet pastel colors. Pair these with a cute sundress or summer skirt

Wedges1

 Strappy Sandals:

These are a good step between casual sandals and formal wedges. They can be worn to anything from school to church to a day out with friends. I especially love the sandals that have a little strap over your toe.They are unique and make a statement! Strappy sandals are a practical, comfortable choice of shoe for the summer time. They can be worn at both casual and classy events. Collage1

Your shoes tell people about you. They can be a way to express your personal style and personality. 

Strut your stuff, ladies!

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!
                                                          Chelsea xoxo

Hi Lovelies!

            I’m sure you’ve all heard me talk about or use Michael Todd skincare products in my YouTube videos.  Michael Todd skincare and beauty products are top of the line made with all organics.  You won’t have to worry about breaking out or being allergic to anything you use.  I have sensitive skin myself, and these products are perfect!  

           Chelsea Crockett- Michael Todd Pearl and Silk Mask I recently got the Organic Pearl and Silk Mask.  It’s an extremely gentle mask that leaves your skin feeling clean and soft.  With the help of the pearl, the mask hydrates dry skin and the silk leaves dull skin looking brighter!  After applying the mask, my skin felt cool and tingly.  I could feel the mask cleaning out my pores.  After the mask had been on for 10-15 minutes, I washed the mask off with a wash cloth and my normal cleanser.  My skin was glowing and felt so soft.  It felt cleaner than ever! 

            Michael Todd also carries other masks including the intense Charcoal Mask for deep cleansing, the Pumpkin Mask to replenish your skin with the nutrients it needs, and the Avocado Mango Mark for extreme hydration for dry skin.

            Another great product by Michael Todd is the Charcoal Scrub.  It’s a deep cleansing scrub that goes beyond the pores.  After one use, my skin felt cleaner and smoother.  I have really oily skin and noticed that each day I used it, my skin felt less oily and fresher.  I didn’t feel the need to wash my face 100 times a day.  Michael Todd products have made my everyday face washing routine simpler.  My skin has never looked better and your skin will feel the same way!     

                                    Happy skincareLaughing

Hello lovelies!

 Memorial Day is fast approaching! Today I am going to give you some suggestions on how to look your best on this special day! Whether you are hanging out with friends, throwing a party, or just chilling with your family, I am here to make sure you are looking fab this Memorial Day.

       I don’t know if you all know this, but I am really loving the high-waisted shorts trend. They are so adorable and give you a retro look. Search for a pair here:http://tiny.cc/HighWaistedShorts!  You can pair a white or red shirt with a pair of high-waisted shorts for a casual look on Memorial Day. You could also rock an American Flag printed pair like the ones shown in the picture below. Love em! Throw on a pair of white or red sneakers or strappy sandals to complete the look. This outfit is perfect if you plan on hanging out with your friends and keeping things low key. 

Another outfit idea is to sport a sweet sundress. Sundresses are ideal when it comes to staying cool while enduring hot weather because they are so loose and flowy. If you are attending a barbecue or an outdoor event, this is your best choice. Not only are sundresses classic and adorable, they are also super comfy. I suggest wearing a sundress that is either white or is accented in patriotic colors for this occasion. Throw on a pair of classy wedge sandals and the outfit is complete! Need help picking out a dress? Check out my example below!

Chelsea Crockett

And finally, accessories! A sure way to spruce up any outfit is to add nail color. Paint your nails red or stripe them with white and blue! Another way to add a patriotic splash to your ensemble is to pucker up and apply bright red lipstick. Red lipstick adds character to any outfit!

Memorial Day is about honoring those who have given their lives for our country. On this day we thank the men and women who have sacrificed so much for the freedom and safety of this country. Have a blast this Memorial Day!

Love, Chels

Hey insiders!  It’s almost summertime and your wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without a cute, trendy pair of high waisted shorts.  High waisted shorts are a new trend among teens and the hottest celebrities.  You can buy them in stores or simply make them yourself!  They come in a variety of colors and patterns to match almost any look.
            A few of my favorite stores to find high waisted shorts are Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Pacsun, and also Love Culture.  At any of these stores you can find super cute summer colors and patterns for a great price.  You can also look at online stores such as sammydress.com and romwe.com.

As far as making them yourself, figuring out how isn’t hard at all.  First things first, you need to purchase a pair of high waisted jeans or Capri pants, unless you have an old pair that you don’t mind cutting up.  Make sure you try them on first to make sure they fit you just right!  To start, lay them down on a table or flat surface and line the two legs up. After that, take a writing utensil and mark where Chelsea Crockett - High Waisted Shortsyou want to make your cut.  Make sure the two marks are even on both legs.  You wouldn’t want to have uneven shorts!  Next, take a pair of scissors and cut along your markings.  It’s as simple as that!  You can even make them your own by adding your own touch such as studs, holes, rhinestones, or lace.   To make holes, you can take a few pieces of sandpaper and rub them on the area where you want the hole.  It may take a while, but eventually the threads will start to come apart to give you a cute edgy look.

See girls?  With just a few simple tips you can find and even make your perfect pair of high waisted shorts!  Make sure you send me pictures of your cute summer look on Twitter and Instagram!  Can’t wait to see what you create!
