When Mother’s Day was just around the corner, I wrote a blog post about different, unique ways you could spend that special day with your mom!  But since we’re finally in the month of Father’s Day, I thought I’d come up with a few ideas that are more centered around dads but still fun for your whole family!

  • If your dad is the typical dad that’s always down to golf, take him golfing for the day!  Chelsea Crockett - Baseball GameYou can go play a full round or even just hit up the driving range for a couple hours.  If you’re not a golfer, maybe even try taking him mini golfing.  It’s a great way to bond over something he likes to do!
  • Instead of going out to eat to celebrate, offer to help your dad grill a big dinner for your whole family!  That way, you can learn how to grill and spend time with your dad at the same time.  Sometimes just offering a helping hand can make his day!
  • Sit your dad down a week or so before Father’s Day and ask him what his ideal day would be, then make it happen!  Maybe he wants to go to a baseball game or fishing on the lake.  Whatever it is, make it happen since it’s his special day!
  • Bring out the little kid in him!  He may not say it, but it might just make his day to go camping, go-karting, etc.  Get out and be adventurous! 

Which idea are you going to treat your dad to this year?  Share with me in the comments below!  Maybe my dad and I are doing the same!

Happy Father’s Day! – Chelsea

There is a new jewelry trend that I have been keeping my eye on for a while, and it is raw stone jewelry! I have been really into the “earthy” and “nature” styled look lately and this jewelry encompases both of those attributes. I love the subtle uniqueness of each stone, every piece is different! The pieces are also very simple and understated which I love. Here is how to rock this free spirited trend!

Pendants: Etsy has a TON of raw stone/crystal pendants on their site. A simple stone pendant can add character and uniqueness to any outfit. I recommend pairing a simple flowey top with a stone pendant and dark jeans with suade booties and a felt hat for a free spirited look.raw 3

Rings: These are also very popular on Etsy. If I could I would rock one of these on every finger! I love the subtle earty tone these rings add to your look. You can literally wear these with every outfit!

Crystal cuff: Crystal cuff bracelets are another way to make this trend work for you. Each one is so unique because of the stones featured on them. You can find tons of them on Etsy!

So what are your thoughts? Would YOU wear jewelry that features raw stones? I think the ring is my favorite piece. If you are looking for simple, unique, versitile accessories then raw stone jewelry is definitely for you!

XOXO, Chels

The Truth about Freckles

When you start to think about it, freckles are weird.  They’re little brown spots on our skin that have a higher concentration of melanin than the rest of our bodies.  Some have them, some don’t.  Some love the, some hate them.  Some have them in the summer, but not in the winter.  Let’s get down to the truth on these crazy little specks we call freckles.

Freckles are a beautiful thing!  They make each person unique and their own individual.  Freckles often fade in the winter and get darker in the summer due to sun exposure.  When the skin is exposed to too much sun, your skin reacts by forming specks of melanin, otherwise known as freckles.  If you notice they are appearing rapidly, it might be a good idea to stay out of the sun for a little while.  If you don’t like your summer freckles, you can help prevent them by wearing sun screen, a hat, and clothing that covers your skin.

Although freckles are typically harmless, some can turn out to be dangerous.  It’s important to know your skin!   If you notice a freckle that is oddly shaped, different in color, or keeps randomly appearing and disappearing, get it checked out by your doctor ASAP!  Better safe than sorry!  If you don’t like your freckles, remember that you are unique and that’s what makes you beautiful.  You’re one of a kind!

I love you all!

            Hello lovelies!

            One of my favorite things about autumn is the fun that comes with Halloween.  You can find pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns on almost every street.  Aside from being perfect decorations for the season, carving and decorating pumpkins is a fun activity no matter what age you are!  Whether you’re carving for fun or for a decorating competition, you’re going to need unique thoughts to make your pumpkin your own!

            A great idea I know girls wilChelsea Crockett - Glitter Pumpkinl love is to glitter-up your pumpkins.  Lay out a few pieces of newspaper and set out your pumpkin.  The best way to do this is to purchase a can of spray adhesive.  Spray your preferred deign on your pumpkin.  While it’s still wet, sprinkle whatever color glitter you want on the glue.  It should turn out girly, sparkly, and attention-catching!

            Chelsea Crockett - Fretwork PumpkinOne idea that’s not just for the ladies, is a fretwork patterned jack-o-lantern.  An example of this, is the picture on the left.  After scooping out the seeds and insides of the pumpkin, you will be ready to go. To begin this design, take a thick piece of tape and make a ring around your pumpkin.  You’ll need to have a drill with two different sized drill bits, one large and one small.  Then, drill rows of circles around the tape creating a design you think looks best!  When your design is complete, place a votive candle inside the pumpkin and light it. 

            Voila!  You have a polka dotted, glowing jack-o-lantern!

            I hope these ideas gave you a little originality this fall.  I can’t wait to see how yours all turned out!
