Hi Insiders,

            Being a teenager can be tough.  Between school, hanging out with friends, sports, and work, there’s hardly any time to spend with your parents.  A quick “hi” and “bye” is the typical conversation these days.  As you all know, I really love my family.  If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing now!  They’ve always been there for me and encouraged me to follow my dreams.  You may not always realize it, but your parents love you so much!  Here are a few ideas to show your parents you appreciate them as much as you do.Chelsea Crockett- family life

  • Always tell them you love them before you leave the house and before you go to sleep.  A simple “I love you” can go a long way.
  • Invite them to different school functions you’re attending.  Whether it be a football game or tennis match, it’ll show your parents that you enjoy being around them.
  • Talk to them!  Don’t be afraid to open up.  They are your support system.  This will create a stronger bond.
  • Write them a card.  Sometimes it’s hard to tell someone exactly how you feel face to face, so write out a nice letter to show your appreciation.  It doesn’t have to be a birthday or holiday for someone to receive a card!
  • Set aside at least  one night a week for a family dinner.  It’s a great way to sit down and spend time with your parents.

I encourage all of you to spend more time with your family.  They will always be there for you!  “Honor your father and mother.  Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” Exodus 20:12

Love,

Black Friday Shopping Tips

Calling all shopaholics! Do you plan on going out and braving the crowds this Black Friday? If you are, then you really need to read these important tips! They will help you get the best deals possible, and they will give you some tips on how to stay safe when braving the masses!

  1. Do your research and browse the deals before you go. If you are looking for something specific, like a certain electronic item, then you need to research which stores are selling the item and which one offers the best price. You also need to check out what time the stores that you want to hit are open. Some stores open early on black Friday, some stores don’t open until late at night, the times can be all over the place! The best thing to do to stay organized is to keep a notebook or a sheet of paper with you that has each store you want to go to, the time they open, and what items you want to look for when you get there and their price. When you have a ton of people rushing around you, the best thing to be is organized and to have a game plan.
  2. TAKE AN ADULT WITH YOU. Ladies, I cannot stress this enough, take an adult with you! On black Friday, you will encounter countless crazy, frantic people trying to snatch and grab up items. You do not want to get in a compromising position or in a dangerous situation without having an adult to help you. Also, adults can help you find the items you need and can advise you on the best deals.

Stay safe this Black Friday, ladies! Good luck!

XOXO, Chels

Say “NO” to Texting and Driving

Hey Insiders,

            If you have your license or know someone who has their license, listen up!  Texting and driving is a HUGE issue.  Between commercials, TV programs, and billboards on every highway, texting and driving has been addressed almost everywhere!  It’s a serious problem all around, and teens and adults alike need to take the pledge never to text and drive.  This year, the Teen Choice Awards really encouraged teens to take the pledge to stop texting and driving.  Watching this program really made me think.  Is your text really that important?  Can’t it wait until you arrive at your destination?  Sometimes, sending a text while driving can be a life or death situation.  Is your text worth your life, or possibly someone else’s life?  I hope not!  They can all wait!  Check out the website below for heart breaking stories and testimonies, and take the pledge to never text and drive!Chelsea Crockett- texting and driving  #itcanwait

College Students: Budgeting

Hi Insiders,

            Now I know a lot of my followers aren’t in college, but for those who are or are starting, here’s a guide to budgeting during your college years.  It’s easy to spend your money quickly when you go out with friends or at school events, but trust me saving up will pay off in the long run!  Follow these quick tips and you’ll be on your way to stashing money in no time!Chelsea Crockett- saving money

  1. Try the “pay check” trick!  Whenever you get a pay check, put half of your earnings in your wallet and half in your savings account.  Do this right away!  That way, you can’t spend that money even if you wanted to!
  2. Check out your local businesses!  Most restaurants and shops around a college town offer student discounts.  If you feel like eating out or shopping, check out one of those places.  It’ll save you money and support local businesses.  It’s a win-win situation!  Plus, most of these places are in walking distance, so you don’t have to spend gas money!
  3. Say no to your credit card!  When you go out with friends, withdraw a specific amount of cash.  This will stop you from spending more than you want to.
  4. Be careful with the saying “I’ll pay you back!”  A lot of times, your friends will forget or take a long time to get the money to you.  Be careful!

Whether it’s for a Spring Break trip, Study Abroad, or for your future, saving money is a very important life lesson!

Enjoy college!

Crazy Celebrity Hair Trends

Hi Girls,

            Celebrities are known for doing crazy things!  Whether it’s making headlines for a scandalous movie role or debuting a new look, celebrities are always in the news!  Lately, crazy hair trends and dramatic hair changes have been all the buzz in Hollywood.  I’ll break down Chelsea Crockett- colored hairsome of the craziest celebrity hair dos and hair trends around!

            Celebrities like Katy Perry are notorious for bright colored hair.  You never know what hair color is going to make its way down the red carpet.  I don’t recommend dying your beautiful hair to green, blue, or purple.  Plus, it’s terrible damage to your hair!  Another crazy hair trend is Bohemian braids.  This is when one side of your hair is tightly braided while theChelsea Crockett- short hair other side is down.  Kind of crazy looking! 

Miley Cyrus has been in the headlines for her dramatic hair change.  Her beautiful brown hair is no more!  Celebs, like Miley, have been chopping their hair off for a more “edgy” look.  How could you cut such beautiful hair?!  It’s fun to see all of these looks come to life in magazines and on the big screen, but not realistic.  Keep your pretty natural hair! Kiss

Love,

Conquer Back to School Stress

Hi Insiders,

            Unfortunately, school is coming up soon.  I am definitely starting to feel the back to school blues.  Between homework, sports, and clubs, it’s hard to find enough time for yourself during the day.  My stress level can get to an all-time high!  I’m going to give you a few tips to beat the back to school stress and enjoy your time more often.Chelsea Crockett- back to school

  1. It’s good to get involved, but not too involved.  As a student, everyone wants to be involved in everything.  Clubs and sports are so competitive these days that everyone wants to be the captain or president.  Many students join too many clubs or sports and seem to get over-whelmed between that and school work.  Try to pick and choose between what you join.  Give yourself time for homework and yourself.
  2. Don’t wait till the last minute to do homework or projects.  Just because you have a week for an essay doesn’t mean to wait until the night before.  That’s just calling for stress!  Do a few paragraphs a night or work 30 minutes a night on a project until the due date.  This way you won’t feel overwhelmed all at once!
  3. Stay organized!  As nerdy as it may sound, I love my planner!  If you use it correctly, you won’t forget about a project or event you have to do.  I promise it helps!

It’s cool to care about school and yourself.  Don’t let things get to you and cause you stress.  Be smart and enjoy your school year!

-Chelsea

Hey Insiders,

            Do you ever wish you were a famous, rich celebrity with a never ending bank account?  Yeah, that’d be nice.  While it is impossible to come up with a million dollars, coming up with a good amount of pocket change isn’t too hard.  Whether it’s for a shopping spree, vacation, paying someone back, or just for an investment, I’ll tell you some fun and easy ways to start saving your money!Chelsea Crockett- save up money jar

            Do you love to work out?  Well, for every workout you do put a dollar (or more if you’d like) in a jar.  Soon enough, you’ll see your hard work paying off.  You’ll have a good chunk of money and see how many workouts you’ve done.  It’s a win-win situation!!  Another great way to get money fast is to sell your old clothes.  Look for a resell-it shop near your area, like Plato’s Closet, and bring your clothes you don’t like or clothes that don’t fit you anymore.  Why keep them when you could get money for them?!

            Of course, if you have a job, the easiest way to save money is to put a portion of each paycheck away and don’t spend it!  It’ll pay off in the end.  Get to saving everyone!

Good luck,

            Chels

Happy summer Insiders,

                If you’re like me you, then love late summer nights.  Hanging out with my girlfriends, making videos, and watching movies are just a few things that keep me up all night.  It’s always a great time, but I started losing more and more sleep.  I started looking into the benefits of sleep and now force myself to sleep more.  It’s SO good for you!!  The term “beauty sleep” is actually a real thing.  Getting 8-9 hours of sleep a night reduces dark circles under your eyes and reduces wrinkles.  Many studies also suggest that you will live longer.  Who doesn’t want that?!  As well as looking more beautiful and living longer, getting enough sleep can improve memory and creativity.  This can help with school or making YouTube videos, like meLaughingChelsea Crockett- sleep.  If you’re an athlete, it can help with your performance level.  If you’re not happy with your game, then get some sleep!  Along with all of these amazing benefits, getting enough sleep can help you maintain a healthy weight.  You’ll be more beautiful, fit, and have more attention with a good night of sleep.

                Goodnight 😉

Hi Insiders 🙂

                Have you ever reached for that bag of chips after a day out by the pool, but decided not to eat them because they are bad for you?  I do that all the time, except I usually eat a few…opps!  Summer is the best time to get your body in shape.  I’m going to give you a few healthy options for summer snacks to keep your body energized.  Your body will love you for it!  They are easy to prepare and tasty as well!ChelseaCrockett- Cucumber Sandwiches

                Crackers and cheese is always a quick option for a snack.  Crackers are full of carbs and really high in sodium.  A great alternative to crackers are cumber slices.  They are low carb and just as yummy!  Slice them thick or thin and enjoy with your favorite kind of cheese.

                Chelsea Crockett- Orange SmoothieAnother great snack or breakfast option is a smoothie.  Full of fresh fruit, juices, and yogurt, a smoothie will give your body all the nutrients it needs!  Adding a small handful of spinach will take your smoothie to a whole new level…and you can’t even taste it!  Click here for a handful of my favorite smoothie recipes!

                My last healthy option is whole wheat tortillas.  They can be used for a variety of snacks!  Spreading peanut butter and sliced bananas on a whole wheat tortilla and rolling it up makes for a sweet summer snack.  A great lunch option is adding your favorite deli meat and cheese to a whole wheat tortilla.  It’s much better for you than bread!  I hope you all can start snacking smart and being healthy!

    Xoxo,

Hi Insiders!

            I know you’re all just as excited as I am for school to be over…summer is finally here, yay!! Laying out by the pool and hanging outside with my friends is a common occurrence in the summer time.  With the sun pounding down, it can get really hot laying outside for hours upon hours.  I’ll show you some of my favorite summer drinks and how to make them to beat the heat. Chelsea Crockett- watermelon lemonade

            Watermelon and lemonade are two of my favorite summer treats, so why not combine them?  Watermelon lemonade is delish and so easy to make! Using a food processor or blender, blend the watermelon until it is a smooth liquid.  Then, place the liquid through a strainer to remove the pulp.  If you want to make your own homemade lemonade, click here.  If you want to take the easy route, like meWink, then you can add the watermelon juice to a pre-maid lemonade or powdered lemonade you can mix yourself.  There you have it, refreshing watermelon lemonade!

            Another fun drink is Kool-Aid Sprite, otherwise known as “Magic Potion”.  Using an ice cube tray, pour your favorite flavors of Kool-Aid to make Kool-Aid ice cubes.  After the Kool-Aid is frozen, add them to your glass of Sprite.  While you’re out in the Chelsea Crockett- Magic Potionhot sun, the Kool-Aid will slowly melt.  Each sip will be a different flavor!  It’s an ever-changing drink.

                                        Have a great summer!
                                                          Chelsea xoxo
