Two things come to mind when I think about fall snacks: Pumpkins and s’mores. Why not combine the two for a sweet, festive goodie! I think these are great bonfire snacks, or something cute to make for your bf as a random treat!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can pure pumpkin
  • ½ cup butter, cut into pieces
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup crushed graham crackers
  • 12 graham cracker squares
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows (separated)
  • 1 1/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking dish with foil. Next, heat the pumpkin, butter, milk and cinnamon in a small saucepan over low heat until the butter is melted and the mixture is heated. Stir in graham cracker crumbs. Remove from heat.

Lay out the graham cracker squares on the bottom of the baking dish. Spread half of the pumpkin mixture on top of graham crackers. Sprinkle 1 cup of marshmallows and 2/3 cup of chocolate chips over pumpkin mixtures. Spread remaining pumpkin mixture over marshmallows and chocolate chips. Sprinkle the rest of the marshmallows and chocolate chips. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until the marshmallows are golden. Let it cool, refrigerate for an hour, then enjoy!

Deeeeelish.

XOXO, Chels

Fall festivities are some of the best of the entire year!  Apart from breaking out my boots and sweaters, I’m getting ready for all the bonfires and haunted houses I plan to attend!  There are so many different ways to spend your fall, so I put together a fun bucket list for you and your friends to get the most out of this season!

  • Go on a hike.  Fall is the best time of the year to go on a hike.  It’s the perfect weather to be outside.  You also get to see all of the leaves changing colors! (Plus, being active never hurts!)
  • Halloween time is the best time for a scary movie night with your BFFs! Chelsea Crockett - Halloween Treat  If you’re not into scary movies, you can always watch some classic Halloween movies such as Hocus Pocus or Halloween Town!
  • Bake, bake, bake!  There are so many festive treats to make like the picture on the right that’ll make your mouth water.
  • Carve a pumpkin (and eat the pumpkin seeds!).  Whenever my family carves pumpkins, we always salt and bake the seeds at the end.  Not only do you get a jack-o-lantern out of it but a yummy snack, too!
  • Go to a haunted house or trail.  You can’t have Halloween without a little scare! 
  • Make s’mores.  If you have a bonfire, s’mores along with apple cider are a necessity!  Fun fact: even if you don’t have a bonfire, there are ways to make them using your microwave!
  • Have a fall photoshoot.  It’s so fun to dress up in sweaters and boots and take fun pictures outside with your friends!  At least it makes for a good Instagram post, right?

What else do you have on your fall bucket list? If you haven’t made one, I urge you to make the best of this season!

XOXO – Chelsea

Being a high school student can be rough. We are supposed to go to school, have jobs, do extracurriculars, and still have time to hang with family and friends. It can be overwhelming! Also, as high school students, we are usually strapped for cash. Here are a few fun things to do that won’t break the bank!

  1. Rearrange your furniture: I love rearranging the furniture in my room! It keeps things interesting.
  2. Organize your closet.20131109_Chelsea-0025-XL
  3. Have a movie marathon with close friends.
  4. Practice new makeup looks: This has me written all over it
  5. Go sightseeing…in your own city: Act like a tourist in your own city. You will be surprised at how much you didn’t actually know about the very place you live!
  6. Paint your nails.
  7. Go on a bike ride.
  8. Take a nap: My personal fav!
  9. Volunteer for a local organization.
  10. Start a DIY project.
  11. Write a bucket list
  12. Have a bonfire.
  13. Watch home movies.
  14. Organize your makeup
  15. Make old jeans into shorts: Goodwill here we come!

XOXO, Chels

My favorite season is finally in full swing!  We have fall flowers and pumpkins decorating the outside of our house.  I love building a fire outside and having a good group of people over to enjoy it with me.  Fall is also a time to celebrate Halloween (obviously!).  At our house, Halloween is just a time to dress up, play pranks, and scare each other.  It’s all in fun!

While I’m sure some of you are planning a costume party for Halloween, others may have haunted houses or trails on their minds.  It’s both frightening and entertaining to get your friends together and go to a local haunted house Chelsea Crockett - Fright Festor trail.  If you’re looking for ideas, you can google local hauntings in your area.  Another great place to go for a scare is your closest theme park.  Places like Six Flags fill their theme park with ghouls, ghosts, goblins, and more.  They have haunted hayrides, houses, and scary people roaming the grounds.  It’s always exciting to go with friends…plus if you like a thrill, you can hit the roller coasters! If you live near a big city, you can often find famous local haunted houses that are some of the best in the country! For example, St. Louis is home of the Darkness and Creepy World! Both equally fun and terrifying :).

So, what are you waiting for?  Grab some friends this weekend and enjoy the cool air and haunted activities in your area!

Happy fall! – Chels

Hey insiders!

It’s finally bonfire weather, which means big sweaters, s’mores, and memories made with your closest friends.  The weather’s just a little chilly, allowing you to bundle up by the fire and enjoy some apple cider.  Whether you’re going to a bonfire or hosting one, you’re going to need an outfit that’s going to be on fire (not literallyWink).

If the bonfire bash you’re attending is just a small get-together with friends, putting a lot of thought into your outfit isn’t needed.  A big sweatshirt and sweatpants is all you need to keep you warm and comfy while roasting marshmallows.Chelsea Crockett - Over-Sized Sweater Look

If you’re attending more of a party/bonfire, you’ll need a fashionable, yet warm, autumn outfit to wear.  Since over-sized sweaters are a huge trend in the fashion world, they’re perfect to throw on with your favorite pair of leggings.  Pair this with your favorite boots and you’re set.  I prefer combat boots because, in addition to keeping your toes warm, they’re also stylish and edgy.  If you want to accessorize, try wearing a scarf and purse to match.  Even throw on a beanie to make your look trendier.

Of course, you can always take the even dressier route.  Denim and plaid are both two styles that are hot in Hollywood right now.  If you choose to wear either of these patterns, try rocking a long-sleeved button up.  Instead of buttoning it up, leave it open and show off your favorite shirt or V-neck.  As for pants, simply wearing jeans or leggings will work just fine.

Good luck and have fun!

Hi Insiders!

            Halloween is such a fun time of the year.  It’s the one day you can dress up as anything you want and not act yourself for a day.  So what do you do when you’re too old to Trick-or-Treat?  I’ve got a few fun Halloween ideas to keep the evening as exciting as it as when you were a kid!Chelsea Crockett- bonfire

            Have all of your friends over for a bonfire.  Instead of dressing up in your own costume, create a themed bonfire.  Have everyone show up in their wackiest pajamas or as their favorite Disney character.  Complete your bonfire with s’mores, spooky music, and ghost stories.  Put plenty of blankets outside, so everyone can cuddle up and enjoy the night out by the fire.

            If you’re looking for a lazier night with a few friends, give your parents the night off and watch scary movies and hand out candy to the neighborhood children.  Although you’ll be staying indoors, you’ll still be in the Halloween spirit!

            If you’re planning on going all out this year, invite all of your friends over for a Halloween bash!  Clear out your basement, have all of your friends dress up, and dance the night away.  Be sure to provide plenty of crazy Halloween Chelsea Crockett- Halloween donutssnacks, like donut eyeballs (donut holes with red goo as the veins and a blue M&M as the iris) and a long music playlist.  You could even set up a station to make your own caramel apples.  Be creative with your party!

Happy Halloween!
