It’s graduation season ladies and gentlemen, which means lots of graduation ceremonies, parties, and gifts!  If you have a lot of graduation parties to attend, the gifts can get pretty expensive and start to add up.  Here are a few DIY gift ideas that are just as good as any other graduation gift but won’t break the bank!

  • DIY canvas.Chelsea Crockett - Canvas  I know this might seem pretty basic, but creating a canvas to match your friend’s dorm room is a fun, artsy gift!  You can add her favorite saying, verse, quote, etc. like the picture on the right.
  • High school scrapbook.  If you guys were close in high school, ask your friends to put together a page to add to a scrapbook for her!  You and your friends can even all go in on it together.  It’s thoughtful and memorable!
  • A bracelet/necklace/keychain with their school’s colors.  There are so many Etsy DIY accessories that you can customize to say certain things or be a certain color.  Customize it to have her name on it or her class year and her future school’s colors!
  • Freshman year survival kit.  Everyone could use one of these!  You basically put together a basket, or “kit,” filled with different essentials every freshman needs such as pencils, snacks, band-aids, etc.
  • College gear.  I know when I left for college, I wanted every shirt, sweatshirt, bumper sticker, etc. that my school had to offer!  Order something online or check out the college’s bookstore for a cute shirt or other souvenirs!

Which idea is your favorite?  Let me know in the comment section below!

There are many, many fashion trends and brands that exist all around the world today. So many that we can’t even begin to count them. Since fashion helps make the world go ‘round, several brands have started to realize the impact they can have by putting a meaning behind their products. A brand named Lokai is one of the coolest I’ve heard of yet. Check it out below!

Have any of you ever heard of Lokai bracelets? This company has one of the coolest ideas behind it. Each of these bracelets have 24 clear beads with 1 black bead and 1 white bead. The black bead contains mud from the Dead Sea which is the lowest point on the earth. The white bead contains water from the top of Mount Everest which is the highest point on the earth. The white bead represents the positive, high points of your life; whereas, the black bead represents the negative, low points of your life. This bracelet is a great reminder to stay positive no matter what you may be going through.Chelsea Crockett - Lokai

Lokai’s saying is “Sometimes you’ve hit a low, stay hopeful. Sometimes you’re on top of the world, stay humble.” This brand is super inspiring and develops a really cool message. They make a perfect gift for a friend or someone in your family! Check them out or buy one on their website: www.mylokai.com.

Scarves: Their Many Purposes

 Now we all know that scarves are a great accessory to go around your neck.  Whether it’s to keep you warm or dress up a look, a scarf is an item that every girl must own!  One of the greatest things about scarves is that they have more than one purpose.  I’m going to break down some creative ways to wear your scarf…..the possibilities are endless!

            Chelsea Crockett- braid scarfWho would’ve thought that a scarf would be a great hair accessory?  Start by putting the scarf around your head and tie it behind your hair.  Pull all of your hair, including the left over strands of the scarf, to one side.  Start braiding your hair into a long braid, incorporating the ends of the scarf into your braid.  This will add a pretty pop of color in your long, beautiful braid!  It’s such a fun way to brighten any look.

            Another unique way to wear a scarf is to turn it into a bracelet.  If you have three small square scarves, lay them all side by side and tie all three together at the end.  Start braiding the three scarves together until the braid is complete.  You could even braid in a strand of “bling”!  Tie it around your wrist and there you go!  It’s that simple!   Hope you’ll try out these two different ways to wear a scarf.  Show off your creation to your friends!Chelsea Crockett- Scarf Bracelets

DIY Hex Nut Bracelets

Hi Girls,

            Who would’ve guessed that your dad’s tool box may be very useful in making a pretty bracelet?!  Not me!  Metal bracelets are super cute right now and go with everything!  I’ll show you a simple way to make a bracelet using some string, small hex nuts, and your hands!  Chelsea Crockett- hex nut bracelet 2Chelsea Crockett- hex nut bracelet 3            Start by cutting three long strips of string, whatever you color you like, and tie the three strands in a knot.  Leave about 2 inches of string at the top before tying the knot.  Begin braiding the three strands for about an inch.  Now, it’s time to add the hex nuts.  Slide one of the nuts up the left or right side of string and hold it in place.  Next, add another nut to the opposite strand, hold tightly, and cross both strands over again as if you were to begin braiding.  Repeat this step until you’re satisfied with the bracelet.  I usually add about 18 hex nuts.  Once you’re finished, tie off the end of the bracelet, tie around your wrist, and there you go!  It’s all finished!  Have fun with this project by picking out fun colors of string and gold or silver nuts.  Be creative!

Have funSmile

How to Wear Silver and Gold Jewelry

Hi Girls,

            Necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are the ultimate accessory to any outfit!  They dress up any outfit and take it to the next level.  When it comes to adding these items to your look, do you pick silver or gold?  I’ll take you through a guide to picking out the perfect metallic shade for your jewelry!Chelsea Crockett-gold jewelry

            Gold jewelry looks great with deep colored tones.  Pair gold jewelry with ruby reds, plum purples, and forest greens.  These deep colors will allow the gold to really pop in the jewelry creating a statement piece!  Cream and royal blue also a great colors to pair with gold. 

              Silver jewelry can be perfectly paired with pastels and soft colors.  Silver jewelry is softer than gold jewelry, so these light shades would be over powered by the gold jewelry.  You never want your outfit to look “off”.  Adding the silver jewelry to a light colored outfit will keep your look soft, but with added sparkle!  Black and white are very special colors.  They are completely universal and go great with both silver and gold jewelry!  If you’re wearing black, pick your jewelry based on your mood.  Are you feeling rock and roll or soft and pretty?  Whatever look you’re going for, silver and gold jewelry will forever accessorize any style.

              Love,

                    Chelsea
