If you’re like me, then you love finding beautiful places to explore, especially when you didn’t even know they existed!  I always scroll through Tumblr and Instagram and find the most beautiful spots that I can add to my bucket list.  Here are five that you should add to your own “must-see” list!

  • Garden of the Gods – Colorado Springs, Colorado.  If you’ve never been, this place is amazing!  It’s filled with huge rocks and trees surrounded by the beautiful Rocky Mountains.  If you want a good photo op, then this is the spot for you!   
  • Tamanawas Falls – Mt. Hood National Forest, Oregon.  If you want to submerge yourself in nature, visit this jaw-dropping waterfall.  It’s a big of a trek to get there, but it’s so worth it!Chelsea Crockett - Fort Jefferson
  • Fugitive Beach – Rolla, Missouri.  This place isn’t the most well-known in the country, but where I’m from, it’s a go-to hotspot!  People around the St. Louis area love to go there to hang with friends and even cliff jump!
  • Blue Lakes – San Juan Mountain, Colorado.  You’d never think that this blue of water actually exists in Colorado, but you’d be surprised at how vibrant the water is!  It’s so pretty and the mountains are an added perk.
  • Fort Jefferson – Key West, Florida.  Fort Jefferson is a historic landmark that’s been around for decades and is now a beautiful tourist destination!  Look at the picture to the right to see for yourself!

Which spots do you want to visit?  Share with me in the comments below!

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!

Australia:  Got dandruff?  No problem!  Adding a few drops of tea tree oil to your normal shampoo will get rid of the problem in no time!

Egypt:  For soft skin, bathe in milk and honey.  This one dates back all the way to the time of the pyramids!

Brazil:  If you didn’t already know this, oats are great for your skin!  In Brazil, they place oatmeal in a filter bag and place it over their faucet in the bathtub.  Once the hot water has filtered through the oats, you’ve got yourself a sunburn relief bath!

Costa Rica:  If you have large pores and would like to shrink them for a short-term effect, mix together orange juice and water and use a cotton ball to rub the mixture on your skin.  Let the juice sink in for a few minutes and then continue to wash your face as you normally would!  Your pores should be noticeably smaller.

Spain:  Remove dark under eye circles by placing a sliced potato on your eyes.  This will lighten the skin!

The world has got some pretty great ideas!  It’s time we take advantage of them!

If you’re like me, then you’re an avid shoe lover!  Besides diamonds, shoes are a girl’s best friend.  It doesn’t matter where you’re from or where you’re visiting, you can always spark up conversation about shoes with any girl!  Although we all share this same connection, the most popular type of shoe differs between countries.  Fashion, although a sort of universal language, can be very, very different. Chelsea Crockett- clogs

Ever owned a pair of clogs, Uggs, Hunters, or cowboy boots?  These are serious staples for different countries.  Clogs from Sweden, Uggs from Australia, Hunter rain boots from England, and cowboy boots from Texas have made their way around the world!  From the runway to the street, they’ve become some of the hottest trends.  College and high school campuses are flooded with Hunter Wellies on a rainy day, country concerts are full of girls rocking their favorite pair of cowboy boots, and thanks to the reinvention of the clog, throwing on a pair of clog wedges is all the rage in the summer.  Another fun international shoe is the moccasin from Canada!  Love throwing on a pair of these with a boho top of an easy and cute outfit look!

Crazy to think that some of your everyday shoes originated thousands of miles away!  The world has some amazing ideas!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Have you ever wondered where certain trends you see start or come from? Sometimes a celebrity starts wearing a style that trickles to everyone who witnesses it. Other times, a trend from across the pond makes its way to the U.S. Here are a few looks inspired by countries around the globe!

Kimono cardigans, which started from the original kimonos in Japan, have suddenly become a huge fashion statement in America. High waisted shorts, a simple tank top, and a kimono cardigan with wedges is a fashionable outfit that you can find in a handful of the latest magazines.Chelsea Crockett - Hunter Rain Boots

Rain boots, which have been around way before the 2000’s, are still big here today in the U.S. Rain boots actually started out in England and were first styled as boots for war. Nowadays, brands such as Hunter rain boots have taken the style of the boots and made them perfect for rainy days. They’re super cute and available in almost any color!  Look at the ones on the left for example… So cute!  Check them out here: http://tiny.cc/Rainboots.

Fedora hats are popular for both girls and guys. They’re super fun for a day at the beach or hanging with your friends at the pool. They first started out in France when a woman came on stage wearing a fedora hat while performing a famous French play. Now, it’s a big fashion trend among almost anyone in America!

Chile, in South America, credits red grapes for their perfect skin!  These women usually crush up a handful of red grapes and add two tablespoons of white flour.  They then apply it to their skin and let the mask sit for about 10 minutes.  After washing it off, your face will be left with a luminous glow!

In Egypt, legend tells that Cleopatra used to take milk baths to soften her skin.  Adding two cups of powdered milk to your bath leaves you with glowing, softer skin.

Chelsea Crockett - Cranberry MaskThe women in Spain like to bring out the natural highlights in their hair.  In order to do this the secret is cranberry juice!  To try it out at home, mix a ¼ cup of pure cranberry juice with a ¼ cup of water.  Then shower and rinse your hair in it!  If you’re blonde, make sure you use lemon juice!  Do not use cranberry juice unless you want to end up with orange hair!
