Some ex’s are just tough to get over. Sometimes you can even be tempted to go back to go to them! Don’t fall for that trap! Here are some ways to get over those tricky ex’s.

1. Exercise the blues away

Exercise is a great way to boost your endorphins and get out of your depressed state! When you are happy, you aren’t feeling down and won’t be so tempted to go back to your ex! Just 10 minutes of moderate exercise is enough to improve your mood. Not only does exercise boost your mood, exercise helps your body look and feel better, which boosts your self confidence! When you are happier and more self confident, you are in the right mindset to leave your past relationship in the dust and explore new horizons!

2. Take time to rebuild your relationship with yourself and God

chelsea crockett over it

A lot of times, when you are in a relationship you often put the other person’s needs and wants above your own. Sometimes this can cause you to lose a little bit of yourself. That is no bueno! Often when your relationship comes to an end, you may find it difficult to remember the things that you enjoyed or liked to do because you were so wrapped up in what HE wanted. Pray about it. Lose yourself in Jesus and become so close to Him that all of your relationship blunders will fade into the past. Rebuilding your relationship with yourself and God is the first step to moving on

3. Find a new hobby

Now that you are single and free, find something that you love to do! You may have pushed aside a hobby of yours while you were in a relationship, but now that you are single you are free to do as you please! Immersing yourself in a hobby will not only keep your mind off of your ex, but it will also bring you joy! Pick up painting or photography or even reading! Anything you like!

Kick those ex’s to the curb, ladies! Show ‘em you are strong and resilient.

XOXO, Chels

Tips for Surviving a Long Distance Relationship

Are you in a long distance relationship? When I talk to my friends who have been in or are in one, they say that it is really tough. When you are dating someone, you want to be with them and spend a lot of time with them, but when you are in a long distance relationship, you only get to see your boo thang every once in a while. Here are some tips for my ladies who are strolling down the “long distance relationship” road.

  1. Forget the haters. Those people that tell you your relationship will never work? Don’t pay them any attention. Surround yourself with people who will bring you up and support you and help you through the times that you are missing your boy so bad it hurts.4f60dbba30514.preview-300
  2. Plan phone/Skype dates. Communication is important in any relationship, but even more so in long distance relationships. Make plans for a Skype date, like a time and day. Dress up, put on some makeup, do your hair, and act like you are really going on a date. Talk about any and everything with them.
  3. Have a life. What I mean is, don’t sit around the house and mope about missing your boy toy, and don’t not go out and have fun because you think that you can’t because you have a boyfriend. Trust is big, so trust your guy to be able to go out with his friends and have a good time. At the same time, he needs to trust YOU too.

You can do it, ladies! As my boy Hunter Hayes would say “Love don’t know what distance is.” You got this.

XOXO, Chels

Tips to Help you Get Along with your Roomie

Do you have a roommate? Are you going to have one soon? Sometimes they can be your best bud, and other times they can be a pain in your boootay. Living in a room the size of an airplane bathroom can be tough on anyone. Here are a few ways on how to keep your cool with your roomie!

1. Be Honest

If you know you are a night owl or a neat freak, tell your roommate. Ask what their pet peeves are so you know to avoid doing those things, and always try and be open to their opinions and concerns.

keep-calm-and-stick-to-the-roommate-agreement

2. Address Issues Right Away

When an argument or problem arises, talk to your roommate immediately. Don’t complain to other people or tweet about it! It is better to calmly approach your roommate and let them know what is bothering you. A lot of issues start off small but can escalate super quickly if they are not addressed right away!

The Golden Rule totally applies here. Treat your roommate as you would like to be treated. This means, don’t borrow clothes without asking or eat your roommate’s food without permission. Don’t bring a ton of friends to the room when you know they have a big exam the next day that they are studying for. Also, always ask before bringing friends over to the room! 3. Be Respectful

 

I hope you have a great time at college, make tons of friends, and even better roomates! J

XOXO, Chels

We all have that one girlfriend that we just cannot live without. She’s the peanut to your jelly and the milk to your Oreo. She just “gets” you, plain and simple. Whether you are a workin’ woman or nose deep in geometry homework, you should always make time for your BFF. How can you show her you love her? By taking her on a date, of course! Dates aren’t just for you and your boy toy, they are for your bestie, too! Here are some handy date ideas for you and your BFF:

 

  1. Bestie photo shoot: get a bunch of props together, dress up, do each other’s makeup, and have a blast! You can do your photo shoot anywhere, from your basement to the park!
  2. Make a best friend bucket list: come up with things that you are dying to do with each other. It can be anything from vacationing in Hawaii to skydiving! Be creative!tumblr_mke18jzIAK1s33l0qo1_500
  3. Cook each other dinner: take turns cooking each other your favorite meal. Why YOUR favorite meal? So they can learn more about what YOU love, even if it is just your favorite dish!

 

Next time you feel like spoiling your sister from another mister, take her out on a date! Treat her right, and get her home before curfew. 😉

Being friends with your ex can be a really great thing. It can also be a really hard thing to achieve! Here are a few pointers to help you become friends with your ex.

1. Make sure that you tow are really interested in being just friends. If you want to start a friendship with an ex with hopes of getting back together, then you are not ready to be friends. Take some time to really think about if you are really ready to be just friends. An easy way to see if you are ready is to ask yourself how you would feel if you heard that your ex was dating someone new. If the thought makes you mad or insanely jealous, then you are not ready!chelsea crockett ex

2. Don’t rush. You may be eager to see your ex again, but keep in mind that you may still have feelings for them and feel emotionally tied to them. Wait to begin a friendship until your emotional feelings have lessened.

3. When you finally do start to hang out with your ex, dress appropriately. You want to look good in front of your ex, but you also don’t want to send the wrong message! Also, when you do meet with your ex, do so in a public place so that you can avoid awkward moments alone!

Like I said, being friends with your ex can be good! You just need to know the right way to go about it.

XOXO, Chels

Prom can be an expensive adventure! Knowing how much it costs can sometimes put a damper on your excitement because you are constantly worrying about money. Here are 3 ways to save some moolah on prom so you can have the best night ever!

  1. Dinner: with a little planning ahead, you can save loads on your prom dinner! Use the site resteraunt.com to buy giftchelsea crockett homecoming cards for less than they are worth, for 10$ you can get a card worth 25$! Holy moly! And if you have a big group, you can get a 40$ card worth 100$!! If you all chip in, it will be super cheap.
  2. Hair: Instead of spending more than 50$ on an updoo, have a friend do your hair! If you have a girl friend that loves doing hair and is talented at it, she will be honored that you want her to do your hair!
  3. Pictures: If your parents or someone in your group’s parents have a nice camera, have them take your prom photos instead of spending money on a photographer! My dad takes my group’s pictures every year. He loves it! DaddyLiciousInsider!

Saving money is always a good idea, especially on things as pricy as prom! Hopefully these tips help you save on your big day!

Sweet Getting-To-Know-You Game

Are you ever at a party and its kinda awkward because you don’t really know the people there? I have a super sweet idea for a “getting to know you” game that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Why? It involves chocolate! I’m in! This game can be played in any situation that you need to break the ice.

Have each person take a handful of M&Ms and put them in a plastic cup so they don’t melt in their hands. For each color of M&M, you have to answer a specific question. Here are some examples:

–          Red- something that happened yesterday.

–          Orange- something you are good at.chelsea crockett

–          Yellow- something about your childhood.

–          Blue- something you cannot live without.

–          Brown- something you learned last week.

–          Green- something you like to watch/listen to.

This kind of activity not only makes things less awkward because you get to talking and learning about each other, it is also delicious! Try this out next time you have a gathering or a few friends over.

XOXO, Chels

Keeping a prayer journal can do wonders for your walk with God. How? Let me tell you!

Keeps your mind on task: I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I am praying my mind seems to wander off and get on another subject.  By writing your prayers down you are keeping your mind on task and it will keep you from daydreaming! Writing out prayers might take a little longer than thinking them, but at least the time is actually spent in prayer.

Allows you to keep track of your prayers: By keeping a journal, you can look back and see who you were praying for, what you were praying for, and how God has answered your prayers! I think it is so cool to look back on the prayers I said in the past and see how God has answered them.chelsea crockett prayer journal

Makes you closer to God: Communication is vital in any relationship, and it is even more important in your relationship to God. The more praying you do to him, the closer you will be. Lay all of your worries, burdens, and anything else that is heavy on your heart, on Him. God loves to listen to you!

Keeping a prayer journal will transform your walk with Christ! 

P.S. If you get a really cute prayer journal, it will make you want to write in it even more! Just a little tip 🙂

Love ya,

XOXO, Chels

Why is the world so violent and evil?

Sin is the root cause of all evil.  Because people sin, the world is filled with sin and evil.  It has been this way since Adam and Eve’s first sin….

Sin is the root cause of all evil.  Because people sin, the world is filled with sin and evil.  It has been this way since Adam and Eve’s first sin.good_evil_post

In some ways it may seem that violence is worse today than in the past.  Weapons are more destructive than ever before.  There are more guns and knives and more ways of hurting people than ever before.  As these weapons get more powerful, so does the power to hurt others.

But in reality, violence and evil come out of evil hearts that are separated from God.  As long as people rebel against God, we will have violence and evil in the world.

Key Verse: Romans 12:21

Social Media: Watch What You Post

I’m sure you all are on social media, am I right? If not, at least you have probably heard of it! I’m talking about Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, all that jazz….

I’m sure you all are on social media, am I right? If not, at least you have probably heard of it! I’m talking about Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, all that jazz. Today I am going to tell you how important it is for you to watch what you say and post on social media, because when you post something, it is out there forever.

I know how tempting it might be to comment on someone’s picture or status and tell them how you really feel, but hold your tongue. Watch what you say, because other people are watching how you react and respond such as future employers. Yes, I said it, your future boss can look you up on social media and see just who you really are! That is an important point. Do not post anything on the internet that you wouldn’t want your boss/parents to see, because it will find their way to them.  According to CareerBuilder.com, 25% of employers check your social media sites when deciding whether or not to hire you.chelsea crockett social media

Also, never put much personal information on social media sites. By posting where you are at all times and putting personal information in your “bio” on the sites, you could put yourself in danger. Another risk of social media is cyber bullying.  Odds are, you have been cyber bullied or you have been the one bullying. Cyber bullying can be something as simple as commenting on someone’s status or picture with a rude remark. Words hurt, girls. Next time you are tempted to comment on something or post something mean, think about the verse Luke 6:31, which says “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” I know it might be hard to hold your tongue, but be the bigger person!

I hope this article makes you think twice before posting anything on social media!

Love you guys,

XOXO, Chels

The sun can be your best friend and your worst enemy.  It’ll give you that lovely tan, but also give you a harsh burn.    Protecting your skin from the sun is extremely important and there are many myths about the sun.  Many think that sun screen will break your skin out, or that you don’t need to wear sunscreen, because you have naturally tan skin.  These are myths!  Don’t let these fool you.Chelsea Crockett- Oil Free Sunscreen

                Most girls hate wearing sunscreen on their face, because they are afraid they will break out.  It’s normal to think that, but not true at all!  UV rays actually trigger acne and can make your skin much worse.  Many sun screen brands make oil free face sunscreen to keep your face from breaking out.  Coppertone Oil Free Faces is a great face sunscreen.  You can even buy it here: http://tiny.cc/Coppertone_Sunscreen

                Tanning beds are extremely popular, especially with teenage girls like me.  Most think they aren’t that bad, but in reality, tanning in a tanning bed raises your chances of getting skin cancer by 75%!  That’s a huge percentage.  Think before you go “fake bake.” 

                The last myth about the sun is that waterproof sunscreen doesn’t need to be reapplied.  False! It is absolutely necessary to reapply about every two hours.  Waterproof sunscreen just means that it won’t come off in the water, but that doesn’t mean it won’t fade.  Stay safe in the sun and kick these myths!

Xoxo,

If you follow me on Twitter you often hear me talking about my recent crossfit workouts! I have fallen in love with crossfit. I love how it pushes my body. People think that you can only do crossfit in an expensive gym, but that is not the case! You can do a simple crossfit workout in your very own home. Here is a simple and easy crossfit workout that anyone can do at home.

                                                                                10 lunges

chelsea crockett workout

10 push-ups

10 squats

10 sit-ups

10 jumping jacks

Repeat this circuit 4-5 times and see results! It might not seem like a lot at first, but when you get to the end of round 3, you will be feeling the burn! I love the exhausted feeling I get after I workout. This circuit is also great for those days when you really want to work out, but either the weather is bad or you just have no motivation to go to the gym. Do it on the floor of your room! Anywhere!

Crank it out, ladies!

XOXO, Chels
