I absolutely love to travel, and thank goodness for that because I travel often! Just recently I went to New York City promoting my new book! Because I travel bunches, I spend lots of time in airports. Now, I wouldn’t say I am an expert at airports, but I know a thing or two that makes traveling in them a little less of a chore. Here are 4 of my top airport hacks to help save you time and money!

  1. Bring your own snacks: Try as hard as you can to avoid buying snacks and drinks at the airport. They are waaaay overpriced. Pack travel snacks like granola bars and trail mix to munch on. Also, pack an empty water bottle in your luggage to fill up once you pass security.
  2. Wear the extra luggage: If your carry-on is close to the weight limit, wear your heaviest pieces and layer them to get past security. After you have gone through, head to the bathroom and take off the layers and pack them up. You might want to keep a jacket or sweater out of your bag, airports and planes can get chilly!
  3. Store your laptop in an easily accessed place: When you go through security they scan your laptop, which means you have to take it out of your luggage. Don’t be that person riffling through their suitcase, holding up the line at security because you packed your laptop in a hard to reach place!
  4. Make your luggage distinguishable: Standing around, waiting for your luggage after a long day of traveling is the worst part of the day. If you tie colored ribbons or fabric onto the handles of your luggage you will be able to quickly find it, grab it, and be on your merry way.
  5. Bring a portable battery charger: Airports do have charging stations, but they are usually majorly crowded. To make sure your phone never runs out of juice, carry a portable battery charger with you. That way you can charge it while you are waiting AND during your flight!

Happy travels!

I have been traveling around a lot lately promoting my new book (YAY!), and I’ve noticed it is taking a toll on my fitness regimen. I like to workout and make it a point to exercise during the week, but my travels have thrown me off of my groove! I want to stay in shape while I travel, but sometimes hotels don’t have gyms or there is no equipment available. That is when it is important to have a workout like the one below up your sleeve! Here is a full body workout, no weights required.

50 jumping jacks

10 burpees

40 Russian twists

10 crunches

10 lunges (on each leg)

10 wide leg squats

30 vertical leg crunches

30 jumping jacks

10 tricep dips

10 squat jumps

10 pushups

25 bicycle crunches

50 jumping jacks

1 minute wall sit

Repeat 2-3 times

I guarantee if you do that two or three times in a row you will feel like you got a 5 star workout in. You didn’t even need to pick up a single weight!

I travel a lot, and I foresee a lot of travel in my future! We are coming up on spring and summer, and those are the times when most people travel. If you travel a lot or plan to in the future, there are a few useful packing tips that you NEED to know to make packing much simpler. These have really come in handy for me these past few months because I have been on the road a lot!

  1. Easy charger storage: Grab an old sunglasses case and store your chargers and headphones in it! This is an easy way to keep all of your essential electronic accessories in one place, and it protects them from getting tangled or broken in your suitcase.
  2. Bobby pin tip: I never know where to pack my bobby pins, because wherever I pack them they always end up disappearing by the end of my trip. Store them in an empty Tic Tac container to keep from losing them!
  3. Jewelry storage: Use an empty pill container to store your jewelry! This keeps it from getting tangled or broken and also helps you not to lose it. Nothing is worse than losing one of your favorite earrings during your travels!
  4. Protect your razor: Clip a binder clip to the end of your razor while traveling to both protect the blade and protect the things you pack from getting ruined by the blade.
  5. Lotion storage: If you want to bring travel-sized amounts of lotion or things of that sort, squirt a little in a contact case! These are perfect for storing liquids during travel because the lids close up nice and tight and prevent any leakage.

Happy travels!

Tips for Traveling Solo

Our world is a beautiful, wonderful place that is meant to be traveled and explored. That being said, it is also a dangerous place to travel for a woman traveling solo. When I travel I take a parent with me as often as possible, but I know a few of my friends that have traveled solo or with another girl friend. I’m also starting to travel a lot more on my own. Traveling solo can mean a ton of freedom because the only person you have to worry about is yourself! But, there are a few things girls need to know before they go off and travel by themselves, just for safety reasons. Here are a few of the super-important ones.

  1. Fill your family in: Before you leave, give your family back home your itinerary. Let them know what your travel schedule is, where you will be staying, and other such info in case they need to get in touch with you or if something goes wrong.fullsizerender-70
  2. Take photos of important docs: Keep photos of your passport, ids, ticket numbers, and reservations with you or in the cloud online so you always have access to them in a crunch.
  3. Pack light: This is so that criminals are less likely to rob you. If you are towing a large suitcase with a Coach purse on your arm, you are more likely to draw a robber’s attention. Small bags are also easier to get around with.
  4. Don’t keep your money in one place: Keep some cash and a credit card on you, and then keep another set in your bag, and then another at the place you are staying just to be safe.
  5. Don’t wear both headphones: Stay alert by only wearing one headphone. If you have both in you are less likely to hear if anything sketchy is going on around you.
  6. Bring a selfie stick: Solo travel means no one is there to take your picture on a moment’s notice. That is the beauty of selfie sticks! Plus, it means you don’t have to hand your camera to a total stranger to take a pic of you.

And, above all, have fun! Just have a safe time while doing it. 🙂

XOXO, Chels

It’s easy to stay in your comfort zone. Taking a leap of faith, changing something in your life, or going to a faraway land can be very scary! Many don’t realize that taking these chances can be the best decision of your life. I always wonder what life would be like if I didn’t decide to start my channel. It’s hard to even imagine! I’m so thankful for the chances that I’ve taken. It’s time that we all scare ourselves a little!Chelsea Crockett- If your dreams don't scare you they're not big enough

Do you ever find yourself stuck in the same old routine? Do you have big dreams that seem unachievable? Side note: They’re not! One of my favorite quotes is, “If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough.” Change is scary, but how can you grow if you don’t welcome change? Scare yourself by traveling across the ocean, changing up your look, or taking on a job or task that seems too big to handle. The result will surprise you. Not only will you believe in yourself more, but you’ll have the confidence to take on even bigger challenges! I never thought I’d be making YouTube videos for millions of people, but it’s given me the drive to try bigger things. I promise: if you scare yourself, the end result will change you (in a good way, of course)!

XOXO,

How to Look Fab after a Flight

If you are planning on doing some traveling any time soon (Spring break will be here before you know it!), then you are going to want to read this article! I have listed a few of my beauty travel tips I use when I am traveling. I fly so much that these beauty tips have been a life saver!

  1. Exfoliate pre-flight: The day before you fly, make sure to exfoliate. This will get all of those yucky dead skin cells off of your skin, and will also prepare you for #2 on this list.
  2. Moisturize it up: Flights can do a number on your skin. So, after you exfoliate, moisturize to the max! Also moisturize the day of your flight.murhighlpel_2
  3. Go easy on the makeup: The trick is to keep it light! You want to be comfy when you are traveling, and wearing a lot of makeup can make getting comfortable quite difficult. Keep it light, keep it comfy!
  4. Be ready to touch up: Odds are, after a day of traveling, your eyeliner is going to smear, your eyes are going to look tired, and your foundation is probably going to be smudged off. Keep some highlighter and powder with you to brighten you up!

Safe travels!

XOXO, Chels
