It is so important to take care of ourselves, both physically and mentally. We may feel like we don’t have time for that, but we need to MAKE time for it. If we are mentally or physically unhealthy, it can have a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves and our happiness, and our quality of life. Here are a few easy ways to practice self-care.

Physical:

  • Go for a walk
  • Swim
  • Play with your pets
  • Take a bath
  • Go for a hike
  • Dance around your room like no one is watching

Mental:

  • Read a good book
  • Learn a new skill like drawing or photography
  • Color
  • Put your phone away

Emotional

  • Do some yoga
  • Go on a date
  • Journal
  • Write down everything you are grateful for
  • Talk to a friend

Taking care of ourselves doesn’t have to be a huge burden. Choose a few of the activities above to do a few times a week and you will feel rested, relaxed, and rejuvenated. It’s all about keeping your life balanced!

XOXO, Chels

Nail care seems pretty simple: clip them, file them, paint them.  It’s as simple as that!  But is it actually that easy?  I never knew that there were certain do’s and don’ts that can make your nail care routine 10x better!  Here are some tips to follow and things to avoid when taking care of your nails.

DO’S

  • Create your own nail care routine.  Chelsea Crockett - Nail Care RoutineHaving a nail care routine down is important for maintaining your nails’ health.  Don’t let them grow weeks on end without trimming them up!
  • Moisturize your cuticle area.  Your cuticle area can get very dry and sometimes even painful.  Moisturize the area so you prevent flaky skin and redness.
  • Keep your nail tools clean!  Nail tools can get dirty just like any other beauty tool.  Make sure you keep them sterilized and free from bacteria!
  • Take nail strengthening supplements.  There are supplements for almost everything: hair, skin, nails, you name it!  Nail strengthening supplements help make your nails thicker and healthier!

DON’TS

  • Don’t bite your nails!  This one is a given.  Biting your nails isn’t only a bad habit, but it weakens and destroys them!
  • Don’t soak your nails for too long or use an excess amount of nail polish remover.  I know it’s frustrating when you can’t get off that stubborn nail polish that you’ve been scrubbing at for 20 minutes, but using too much nail polish remover will dry out your nails!
  • Don’t pull/rip off hangnails.  It’s extremely tempting to rip off any annoying hangnails especially when you don’t have any tools to help.  But when you can, I highly suggest using nail clippers to remove them instead of constantly picking at it!

I hope these pointers help you take your nail care routine to the next level! 🙂

Love, Chels

Which Hair Extensions Are Right for You?

Have you ever had a bad haircut, maybe it was cut too short, or have you always wanted long, thick hair?!  Recently, one of my workers had a terrible haircut experience that resulted in her getting extensions.  What was meant to be a trim, turned into a good 5 inches being taken off.  She was mortified!  Lexi started exploring her options and decided to get extensions.  Curious, I started asking her all about them.  Here’s what she told me:

There are a wide variety of extensions to choose from and must be chosen carefully for each individual person.  While some are temporary, others can last months, and some can even damage your hair.  Depending on your hair type, picking out the correct extensions are crucial for a natural look.

  • Clip in extensions are great for temporary wear. They can be taken in and out and leave no damage to your hair.  You can wash and style these like real hair, but compared to other options, look the “fakest”.  You have to be careful where you place them!
  • Glue-in and pre-bonded extensions are small strands of hair fused with a heating machine to other strands of hair. While these look extremely natural, they require a lot of upkeep.  Avoid using conditioner or heat around the bonds.  This can loosen each bond making them fall out sooner or even break off your hair. 
  • Sewn-in extensions are ideal for people with coarse, curly, or thick hair. They are applied by sewing the extension into a tight braid under your hair line.  This requires frequent trips to the salon to keep the braid tight and make sure the end is still tied.  If you have thin hair, I would avoid this option.
  • Tape extensions are my ultimate favorite. While they are quite pricier, they look the most natural and have the least upkeep.  They are applied with two strands of clear tape to different sections of hair.  If you are gentle with them and don’t use a brush around them, they can last months!Chelsea Crockett- tape extensions

Once you’ve chosen your extensions, have a stylist shape them to blend in with your natural hair.  Hope you love them!

XOXO,
