Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  It’s the meal that gives you the energy to start your day!  I always think of quick and easy meals I can create to give my body the boost it needs.  Well, toast is a fast way to start your day and it can be extremely healthy and nutritious if you know what to add to it.

Chelsea Crockett - Toast RecipesThe first recipe involves a piece of wheat toast with peanut butter and bananas!  Smear on a healthy serving of smooth or crunchy peanut butter, whatever you prefer. Take a banana and slice it up then put the banana slices all over the top of the peanut butter. Feel free to sprinkle a little cinnamon across the top of your toast, too!

Another recipe that I love is avocado toast. I take half an avocado and smash it up then add salt, pepper, and some red pepper flakes to it. Stir it all up and smear the avocado spread all over the top of your toast. It’s delicious! Feel free to add some bacon slices if you have some :).

My other favorite go-to recipe is scrambled egg with cheese and bacon on toast.  I love to take a fresh egg and scramble it in olive oil. Then, I add some cheddar cheese to the mix and stir it up. I toast my wheat bread and put the scrambled egg on top of it after it’s done! While I’m cooking all of that, I fry my bacon in the microwave. It comes out very crisp and I add it to my scrambled egg sandwich! YUM!

Bon appetit! – Chelsea

Halloween 2017: Mermaid Makeup

Halloween is the one night of the year where you get to be whatever you want to be.  There are so many different costumes and makeup looks you can try out to make it the best Halloween yet!  Mermaid costumes are easy to pull off and fun to create a makeup look for.  Here’s an easy makeup tutorial you can try out this Halloween!

Chelsea Crockett - Mermaid Makeup Look

First, let’s focus on the eyes.  You’ll need to apply a teal or lighter blue eyeshadow base on your lids to begin.  Next, take a darker blue and apply it to your brow bone to give your eyes some more depth.  Now, pick a bright purple and apply this to your lower lash line and up to the outer corner of your lid.  Make sure you blend!  You can even add some glitter and shimmer to make your eyes pop even more.

Next comes the fun part.  You’ll need a pair of classic fish net tights to create the “mermaid scale” effect on your skin!  Take your pair of leggings and slide them over your head (try not to mess up your eyeshadow!).  Take a brush covered in purple eyeshadow and dab the brush over the tights on your cheek bone.  You can even incorporate some pinks and blues into your scales as well.  After you’re finished, I suggest taking scissors and cutting off the tights to make sure you don’t smear your product!  Then, you’re finished! 🙂

What are you going to be this Halloween?  Let me know in the comment section below (I need ideas… Haha!).

I love getting crafty for fall especially with tons of different seasonal DIYs! Although there’re so many to choose from, I want to share with you one that’s quick, easy, and perfect to decorate your room with!

When I was younger we used to carve a jack-o’-lantern faces on ourChelsea Crockett - Pumpkin DIY pumpkins, add a tea light, and set them out for trick-or-treaters to admire.  Now that I’m older, I discovered an even better way to carve my pumpkin.  I found this idea on Pinterest and it’s so cute!  First, you’ll have to pick out the perfect pumpkin!  Next, cut out the bottom of the pumpkin, and clean out all of the seeds and insides. Then, take a drill with different size bits and drill holes all around the pumpkin. You can make designs with horizontal or vertical lines or even spell out a word!

After you’ve completed drilling the holes in your pumpkin, add a tea light to the bottom of it and the light will shine right through! It’s fun to create a few different sized pumpkins and make the design different on each one (like the picture on the right). When they’re lit up next to each other, they look adorable!

My favorite thing about finding new beauty tricks is all the different everyday tools and gadgets that can be used as a substitute when applying makeup!  I read an article that told me all about the different kitchen gadgets that can be a hack for putting on makeup, they sometimes even work better than real beauty tools.  Here are a few gadgets to expand your beauty tool collection! 🙂

  • A spoon.  Spoons provide several different tricks and hacks that can make applying your makeup much easier.  One of which is lining up the curve of the spoon to create the perfect winged eyeliner.  The second is putting the spoon under your bottom eyelashes to catch any excess mascara when applying it!
  • A fork.Chelsea Crockett - Fork Hack  I recently saw this hack and thought I’d give it a try.  It really does help when it comes to contouring!  Place the middle prong of the fork on the center of your nose.  Then, take your darker color you’re using to contour and fill in on each side of the prong.  This will set up the perfect lines to fill in and leave your nose with the perfect contour!
  • Dish soap.  Take a ¼ cup of dish soap, a ¼ cup of olive oil, and a spoonful of coconut oil, and mix it together.  This mixture will create the perfect makeup brush cleaner that will thoroughly clean any of your tools without wasting money on expensive, name-brand makeup cleaners!

Which kitchen gadget are you going to try out?  Let me know how it works for you!

Face masks can hydrate your skin, dry out your skin, clear up your skin, etc.  But are they really all they’re cracked up to be?  Some people swear by face masks and use them almost daily.  Others say that most are overrated and can be a total waste of money.  Here are some true and false myths that will help you decide for yourself!

Myth #1: Face masks are harmful to your skin.Chelsea Crockett - Face Mask  TRUE and FALSE!  Too much of anything can be bad for your skin.  This rule applies to face masks.  Although they can be super beneficial, don’t use one multiple times a day!

Myth #2: Face masks have little to no actual skincare benefits.  FALSE!  Most masks actually do benefit your skin.  They can help hydrate it, eliminate oils and dirt, or simply boost its radiance.

Myth #3: You can make your own DIY masks that are just as beneficial.  TRUE!  There are tons of different mask recipes on Pinterest that you can make right at home that are great for your skin!

Myth #4: Using a face mask every day is a good thing.  TRUE and FALSE!  Depending on the type of mask it is, it can either dry out your skin or moisturize it.  For example, if you’re using a clay mask every day, it could really start to dry out and damage your skin!

Are you an avid user of face masks?  If so, share with me below which ones you believe really do make a difference!

I don’t know about you, but I love decorative maps and the vintage feel they give off!  Just the pattern itself is one of my favorites whether it be room décor, phone cases, pillows, etc.  There are tons of different map DIYs that you can easily make into the cutest things!  Especially if you like to travel, you should try out these super cute DIYs!Chelsea Crockett - Pinned Map

Like I mentioned before, for the travelers out there, this one is for you!  You’ll need to purchase wooden letters that spell out the world “travel.”  Buy them in the right size according to where you’re putting them whether it be on your wall, desk, etc.  There are different ways to actually apply the map pattern to it either with map scrapbooking paper, decoupage, etc.  You can hang your letters or get thick ones that will stand up on a table or desk.

Another DIY that’s a little simpler is purchasing a big wall map and attaching it to a foam board.  Since these maps are usually thicker and hard to simply glue it yourself, you can take it to Hobby Lobby or another craft store to do it for you.  Then, buy some pushpins and stick them on the cities that you’ve been to!  It’s a fun way to see how many places around the world/country you’ve gone to!  

Which DIY are you going to try out for yourself?  Don’t be afraid to put your own spin on things and customize it even more!

Winter is the season for peppermints and pine trees and the lovely scents that come along with them. On Pinterest (I may have a slight addiction), I found multiple DIY recipes for different mint scrubs and products. Since it’s the holiday season, I thought I’d share a couple that make for a perfect present… or for your own enjoyment!

For the first recipe, Chelsea Crockett - DIY Mint Scrubyou’ll need a few key ingredients: coconut oil, sugar, peppermint oil extract, and green or red food coloring. First, microwave a ½ cup of coconut oil in a bowl for about 15-30 seconds until it’s softened. Take out your bowl and add 1 ½ cups of sugar along with a drop or two of whatever festive food coloring you choose. Add more sugar until you get the right consistency. There you have it, you’re done!

Another recipe contains the following ingredients: 1 cup of sea salt or sugar, a ½ cup of organic almond oil, a ¼ cup of organic honey, peppermint essential oil, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. To start off, mix the salt or sugar with the almond oil and honey. Add in about ten drops of peppermint oil with the vanilla extract to follow. Stir together and add more sugar to meet your desired consistency!

Which scrub is your favorite? Try them out and let me know below!

DIYs are my specialty! I love doing them on a rainy day with my friends or when I simply don’t have anything else to do. My favorite DIYs are the ones that don’t take much to make them. Especially when they’re crafty and creative, but inexpensive and quick! Here’s one of my recent favorites that you can create for your dorm or bedroom!

Depending on how you want your masterpiece to look, you’ll need five or six pillowcases (or if your pillowcases are big like the picture on the left, you simply may Chelsea Crockett - Pillowcase DIYonly need four).  You’ll need a sewing kit and the same amount of pillows as pillowcases (obviously!). This DIY is actually extremely simple! All you have to do is line up your pillowcases horizontally parallel to each other and sow them together one-by-one. After you’re done sewing, stuff in your pillows. It’s actually that easy! I love all the different ways you can make them. You can either do the same patterned pillowcase such as the picture above or switch it up and do different patterns and colors! I suggest matching it to your dorm or bedroom. Whenever your friends spend the night, all you have to do is pull it out! I suggest storing it under your bed to save space.

Let me know how yours turns out :)!

Love, Chels

Underrated Trends & Fads!

Trends and fads come and go. They wouldn’t be called trends if they didn’t! So many styles and looks that make their way into the fashion world often go unnoticed and fly under the radar. I know I’m not the only one that finds a stylish look on Pinterest and thinks, “why have I not tried that?” or “where did that trend go?” Here are a few that shouldn’t be forgotten!

Chelsea Crockett - Turtleneck SweaterWhen someone mentions a turtle neck, we don’t always picture the cutest shirt or sweater. But I’ve found a ton of blog posts that actually rock them and make me want to buy some myself! The top on the left is a perfect example of making a turtleneck stylish and classy (especially with a topknot or high ponytail).

Another stereotypical “don’t” in the fashion world is overalls. They’re actually really fun to wear and can be worn on tons of different occasions! I even rocked a pair on the Fourth of July! I’ve even seen girls go to baseball games and wear overalls with their teams’ colors and it looks so cute!Chelsea Crockett - Fringe Shoes

Fringe is another look that you either love or hate. In my opinion, it can be totally fashionable! I’ve seen tons of magazines feature fringe shoes like the picture on the right. Wearing fringe like that is so underrated! (Side note: they’re also suede material which is another trend that goes unnoticed!)

What trends do you like that go unacknowledged like the ones above? Let me know below!

Apple pie is one of my favorite desserts, but whipping one up whenever I want isn’t so easy! First you have to get all of your ingredients, spend lots of time making it, and wait for it to finish baking. Who’s got time for that? I wanted to share a quick Pinterest recipe that’ll cure your apple pie cravings in a few minutes!

Let’s start with ingredients. You’ll need Pillsbury crescent rolls, apples, brown sugar, pecans, and apple pie spice. Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F. Set out a pan lined with Chelsea Crockett - Apple Pie Bitesparchment paper and lay each triangle of dough on the paper. Take the brown sugar and the apple pie spice and spread it onto each crescent roll. Then, if you love pecans, sprinkle some chopped pecans on top of the sugar and spice! After that, you’ll need to cut up your apples like the picture above. Dip each slice in melted butter and follow by rolling it up inside the dough. Once all of your rolls are ready to be thrown in the oven, do so for only 10-12 minutes. How quick is that? Let them sit after baking for around 5 minutes and enjoy!

Let me know what you think of them!

XOXO – Chelsea

Chelsea Crockett - Maroon and White OutfitFootball is in full swing at our high school and between the loud cheers and touchdowns, we all want to be looking super cute for the games!  Of course, it’s fun to wear school t-shirts or sweatshirts… but why not have a little fun and dress up a bit? I have to let you in on a little secret! Whenever I’m struggling to decide what to wear, I search Pinterest!  Here’s the catch: If your school colors are maroon and white, go onto Pinterest and search “maroon casual outfit.” Or if your school colors are gold and blue, then search “gold and blue casual outfit.” For something as simple as that, it’s amazing what you will find!

Recently, I searched my school colors and found everything from colored patterned scarves to stylish colored jeans and sweaters.  The outfits are fashionable and trendy, but not too over-the-top. Remember, it is just a football game!  They help me to reinvent some old clothes that I might have in my closet as well.  Sometimes my friends and I get together and switch out our clothes. It’s fun to borrow, share, and design new looks together with the help of Pinterest.  With all of that said, let me know how you use Pinterest to help style your look!
