            Hey insiders!  Whether you’re trying a natural look or a colorful one, you’ll need a pop of color to fully complete it.  As for me, I am never specifically set on a certain shade.  If I’m going for a more subtle look, I’ll finish it off with a clear or light pink gloss.  If I’m feeling a little more adventurous, I use a red or hot pink color which is fun and will be sure to turn heads. 

            With summer here, one of my favorite glosses is the “Kiss of Cherry” fruity lip care by Nivea which I talked briefly about in my May Favorites 2013 video.  It has an SPF of 15 which comes in handy during a day outside or at the pool.  It also moisturizes your lips and gives them a smooth feel which is definitely a plus!Chelsea Crockett - Red Lips

            Another shade that I can throw on with almost anything is a raspberry shade.  It’s a fun color that highlights those rosy cheeks.  It blends with any look and gives off a bright summer shimmer to your sun kissed skin!

            Hope this helps you next time you’re looking for a pop of color to your daily makeup!

            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!

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!

    Xoxo,

Hey Insiders!  We all know summer is right around the corner and packed with many fun-in-the-sun activities!  Whether you’re heading to the pool or hanging out with friends, you’ll need a super cute outfit to complete your summer look!

            As for me, a simple, casual outfit will do the job.  One of the latest trends is high waisted shorts.  They’re definitely my favorite thing to throw on during the summer because they’re casual, quick, and go with almost anything!  As I talked about in another one of my posts, you can buy or even make a pair!  It’s super easy and fun to add your own touch!

        Chelsea Crockett - Romper    Another idea that is cute and comfy is a romper.  A floral or bright romper is fun to throw on with some flats and go shopping or out to eat!  It’s pretty casual but you can dress it up with heels and accessories.  You can find one that suits you here:http://tiny.cc/Womens_Romper!

            If you’re having a bad hair day, there’s a simple solution.  Fedora and sun hats are classy, elegant, and a quick start to a fun outfit.  You can wear them to the pool or to the park.  Dress them up with a sundress or dress them down with a nice pair of shorts and a cute top.  Want to check them out?  Click here!

            Here are just a few ideas to make your summer wardrobe fabulous!  Enjoy!

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!

How to Prepare for Summer

Hey Insiders!

I don’t know if you have noticed, but SPRING IS HERE!! And that means that summer is just around the corner. You know what that means? Swimsuit season is getting closer and closer! If you are looking for ways to tone up and get in shape for summer, look no further!

1. Drink water before every meal: By drinking a glass or two of water before every meal, you are filling up your stomach and making yourself feel more full! When you feel full, you won’t eat as much, and if you don’t eat as much, you will lose weight!

2. Do some sort of cardio twice a week: Cardio is key to becoming a toned beach goddess. It gets your heart rate up and gets your muscles moving! Some cardio exercises that I recommend are jogging, jumping rope, and swimming!how to prepare for summer 

3. Snack healthy: Healthy snacking is a really great way to keep your cravings away and not make you eat as much at your meals! Some healthy snacks are fruit, nuts, or even veggie chips! 

Remember Insiders, losing weight is 80% how you eat and 20% exercising. This means that, although exercising is important to staying healthy, how you eat affects you even more. Now get off the couch, grab an apple, and get your fitness on!

Love Ya,

Chelsea
