Girls either love camping or hate it.  I, for one, loving being outdoors especially if I’m hanging out with my friends and family!  Although it’s super fun, it can take a toll on my hair and skin when I’m outside for all hours of the day.  Here are some ways to keep yourself clean and healthy!

  • Dry Shampoo.Chelsea Crockett - Dry Shampoo  I know that when my hair feels gross, I feel gross.  Having dry shampoo with you wherever you go is always a necessity!  It’ll make both the feel and appearance of you hair 10x better.
  • SPF Moisturizer.  As you know, you should always, always moisturize.  But having a moisturizer with SPF protects you from the sun and is good for your skin!  Might as well kill two birds with one stone, right?
  • Baby Wipes.  If you don’t have a way to shower where you’re at, pack some baby wipes to clean yourself off with.  It sounds weird, but it’s a good way to clean off if you don’t have access to a shower!
  • Wave Spray.  If you’re having that bad of a hair day, get your hair wet and spray it with wave spray.  You can still have fabulous waves even if you feel like you’re not having the greatest hair day!

Hopefully these hacks help you out next time you take a camping trip, especially if you’re not a huge fan of it ;)!

Spring break is often the time for college kids to go on a trip with their friends or get some time away from school to relax and spend time with family.  If you’re staying home or at school for spring break, you don’t have to miss out on all the fun!  Here are five ideas for a spring break “staycation!”

  • Take a day to binge watch that Netflix series you’ve been wanting to watch.  Chelsea Crockett - Gossip GirlClear your schedule for the day, make some snacks, lay in bed, and simply relax!
  • Take a day trip to a good hiking spot or a big city.  This is an inexpensive way to get a mini vacation in your break without having to go very far!  Most of the time you can discover hidden spots that make for the best adventures.
  • Set apart a day on the weekend where you and the rest of your family are free.  Then, plan out a whole day to spend time with each other and do fun things around your city!
  • Since you’re saving money by not going on any spring break festivities, treat yourself to a shopping spree!  I don’t mean you have to drain your bank account, but you can treat yourself by splurging a little at the mall.
  • Catch up with your high school friends.  If you live away at college, you might not get the chance to see old friends as much.  Send out a group text and plan a fun day for the crew!   

What other ideas do you have to add to the list?  Let me know in the comment section below! 🙂

Recently, I was treated to a weekend at the Ritz Carlton hotel in St. Louis.  I had always heard of how amazing and over-the-top hospitable this chain of hotels was, but I never truly knew how great they were until I experienced it firsthand!  If you follow me on social media, then I’m sure you’ve already seen most of the treats and gifts the Ritz provided me with.  Here’s a little recap of my weekend and all of the amazing things they did for me!

When I arrived, I was overwhelmed with all the love and kindness from the Ritz staff and hotel.  The treats and desserts they made for me were to die for!  First, they surprised me with a cake that was modelled after my car!  Then they prChelsea Crockett - Ritz Carlton Giftsovided me a tray with chocolate covered strawberries, cupcakes, and lipstick shaped treats!  How cute is that?  Not only did they surprise me with food and treats but some products and clothing as well!  They even set up a display of a bunch of pictures from my YouTube and Instagram!

When we checked in, we were given two club level suites with free food all day.  I felt absolutely pampered the whole time.  Everyone at the hotel continued to go above and beyond my expectations and I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend!

XOXO, Chels

Summer is the perfect time to get a group of friends together and check something off your bucket list.  Road trips aren’t hard to plan.  All you need is a little money, a map, and good company to explore with!  If you’re down for the adventure, here are some hacks to make your trip a little easier and more enjoyable!

  • Take a phone adapter.  Since we’re all guilty of relying on our phones for directions, it’s necessary to keep it charged!  Adapters aren’t too expensive and can be extremely useful.
  • Download Gas Buddy on your smartphone.  This app is genius for long car rides!  It detects your location and lists all the nearby gas stations along with their prices.  This way you can easily find the cheapest place to fill up!
  • Download Venmo, too!  This app helps you split prices and totals between you and your friends, which is helpful when getting gas, meals, or supplies.Chelsea Crockett - Road Trip Map
  • Make or buy a portable trashcan.  There are plenty of ways you can do so, and it’ll come in handy more than you think!
  • Use a shower caddy to store all of your emergency car tools/fluids.  You never know when these could be useful!  A shower caddy will keep all of your supplies separated and organized.
  • Buy or print out a map to plan out your stops and must-see destinations.  This is the fun part!  Circle or star all of the places you plan on visiting, and connect the dots to find your best route!

Let me know where you and your friends go this summer!

Have fun! – Chelsea

Travel season is here!  It’s time to pack your bags and hit the road… or airport!  There are places all over the U.S. that any of you would enjoy no matter what type of traveler you are.  Whether you like the beach, the city, or the mountains, here are my three top travel spots that are suitable for each kind of traveler!

For the paradise lovers and beach goers, Hawaii is the place for you!  It’s definitely the closest place that lets you feel like you are right in the Caribbean.  The water is so blue and clear, it’s beautiful!  One of the prettiest islands that is a must-see is Maui.  If your family is thinking of places to go this summer, don’t hesitate to suggest it.Chelsea Crockett- Hawaii

For the hikers and nature-lovers, Colorado is the place for you.  During the summer, the mountains are breathtaking.  You can hike, bike ride, paddleboard, horseback ride, and lots of other cool activities.  It’s definitely one of the most active states you’ll ever visit :).  Breckenridge and Colorado Springs are two popular cities there.  Both are lots of fun and absolutely gorgeous!

Lastly, for those of you who love big cities… New York, New York, New York!  I just got back from a trip there and I 100% fell in love!  There is never a dull moment in NYC.  There is always something to do no matter what the time or weather is.  One of the best parts of the city is the endless strips of stores and shops!  I really did shop till I dropped.

So whether you have saved up for a graduation trip, are taking a family vacay, or plan to put it on your bucket list, these places should be at the top of your consideration!
