With social media booming, there are so many new online companies coming out to promote a new way of online shopping.  I’ve written articles about similar companies, including Faithbox and FabFitFun, that require a subscription to receive monthly boxes of products and/or apparel.  Ipsy is another company that has a similar idea but has new ideas to offer to the table! 🙂

The main concept of Ipsy is to inspire girls to experience beauty focusing 100% on themselves and what they want!  Ipsy thinks that beauty and makeup should be accessible and affordable for everyone, and their vision was first created from YouTube. Chelsea Crockett - Ipsy Makeup Bag Beauty gurus were making beauty their own and reinventing it to find their own unique makeup style.  Ipsy’s sole focus is on personalization and finding your beauty personality!

Ipsy is a monthly box of 5 different makeup products that is delivered right to your door!  For only $10 a month, you can try out different products to find out what you prefer and what works best for you.  All you have to do is take an in-depth beauty test so Ipsy knows which products will go best with your skin tone, eye color, hair color, and preferences.  They also ask for your familiarity with makeup and which makeup brands you would love to try out!  They then create your boxes based on your preferences, how awesome is that?  Did I mention it’s free shipping, too?!

Are you going to subscribe?  I encourage you to try it out!  Hey, it’s worth a shot right?

As hard as it is to say it, school is quickly approaching.  As for me, I’m headed off to college on the other side of the country!  Whether you’re starting college, high school, or even junior high, there are certain essentials you’ll need to take with you every day to school.  This will help you survive any hair or beauty emergencies you may experience!

  • A Makeup Bag.  First comes first, you’ll need a small bag to put all of your items in.  I would recommend a makeup bag because they’re stylish and come in all different sizes, patterns, and colors!Chelsea Crockett - Back to School Bag
  • Mini Deodorant.  There are too many times when I leave the house forgetting to apply deodorant or perfume, and it’s the worse!  Keep a small, travel size deodorant in your bag for those forgetful days.
  • Shout Wipes/Tide Stick.  A good day can easily be ruined by a stained shirt.  Shout wipes can come in handy when you need them most!
  • Concealer/Foundation.  Whenever I cover up a pesky pimple, it seems to make its way out throughout the day.  Carry some concealer and/or foundation so you can reapply!
  • Money.  There are so many times when I show up to school forgetting I need cash for a t-shirt, field trip dues, etc.  It’s always good to carry around some extra cash!

As for what not to bring, don’t waste space on things that will most likely already be provided in class or at school.  Things such as tissues, medicines, band aids, etc. will probably be available if you ask!  Think of things that you’ll need in case of emergency that they won’t have for you there!

I hope that’s helpful! – Chelsea

Every girl has their preferred style of purses. You may be one to throw on a cross body with boyfriend jeans and a tee. Or maybe you just purchased an on-the-shoulder bag to rock with your new dress! Well, if you haven’t heard of them yet, Chelsea Crockett - Bucket PursesI’m going to introduce you to bucket purses, the newest and hottest trend!

If you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, look at the picture on the left. These purses bunch at the top and either sling over the shoulder like the one on the left or have a small loop strap to hang on your elbow. I’m obsessed with all the different patterns and colors you can get them in. Some you can even find with fringe or different designs! With fall coming up, they’ll definitely be a necessity in all of your closets! One of my favorite looks I’ve seen with these is a light brown bag with boyfriend jeans, an oversized sweater, and booties. It’s the perfect look for autumn and the purse completes the look!

For where you can find them, it’s pretty simple! For one, Nordstrom’s selection is huge. From a fringe bag to simple and black (or even a mix between the two!), they have almost any bucket purse style you can think of! You can also find them at Forever 21, Macy’s, J. Crew, etc. Or you can check them out on Amazon, just click here!

Let me know what you think!

Love, Chelsea

Everyone Needs A “Little Black Bag”

            Hey insiders!

            Most shopping websites allow you to simply purchase your desired products online, and that’s that.  But littleblackdress.com is a new kind of online shopping, more fun and more creative, letting you shop and swap! 

            Chelsea Crockett - Little Black Bag WebsiteFirst off, you have to make your own account.  The site includes several of the hottest brands including BCBC Generation, Steve Madden, Betsey Johnson, and Guess.   After joining, the website will have you take a personal style quiz!  This will help the site direct you to products that they think you’d be most interested in.  Then you’re set!  You pick one item to add to your “little black bag” and the site picks two other items to add, as well.

            Second, you can pick over thousands of different people to swap items with.  If you find a bag or a pair of shoes you really like in someone else’s bag, you can offer one of your items to trade with theirs. 

            And finally, you can purchase your picked products with some up to 70% off of retail price!  Most items are at least 20-50% off, which to me is quite a steal.  If you’re in to online shopping, check out littleblackdress.com for a creative, new way to shop.  You won’t regret it!

 Hi Insiders!

            Chelsea Crockett- beach bagIf you’ve been following me on YouTube, then you know I just got back from Florida.  Florida is full of beaches and being prepared for a day at the beach is very important.  I love to carry a big beach bag full of activities and necessities for being out in the sun.  Of course, I’ve got a big beach towel to lay out on and dry off before heading back to the hotel.  Another great thing to keep in your beach bag is magazines.  They will keep you entertained while laying out and are just fun to read!  Sunscreen is an obvious must for a beach bag as well.  My favorite is Neutrogena Sheer Touch SPF 30 and Neutrogena Clear Face SPF 55 for my face.  It’s not oily, so you won’t have to worry about breakouts.  I also found this cool brush from Goody called the Quikstyle Paddle Brush that has small microfibers that act as a towel to dry your hair while you brush it.  It’s a great way to dry your hair without any tangles.  Last, I like to keep a small makeup bag with all the essentials, including concealer, SPF lip balm, and waterproof Chelsea Crockett- goody paddlebrushmascara.  To end my day in the sun, I like to wipe my face with Burt’s Bees toner.  It restores your skins natural PH levels and takes off any excess makeup, dirt, salt water, etc.  It’ll leave your face feeling clean after a day at the beach!

Love ya,
