            Hey insiders!

            As autumn rolls in, so does cold, windy weather.  This type of weather can irritate and dry out your skin.  Face masks and scrubs will be much needed, but also over-priced and very expensive.  Here are a couple DIY recipes that you can make at home and avoid breaking the bank!

            Pumpkin Face Mask.  For this recipe, you’re only going to need three ingredients: 2Chelsea Crockett - Pumpkin Face Mask teaspoons of pureed pumpkins (or canned), 1 teaspoon of organic Greek yogurt (milk can be substituted), and a half teaspoon of organic honey.  These products will help soothe and exfoliate your skin with the vitamins they contain.  To start off, take all of your ingredients and mix them together in a bowl.  Then apply the mixture to dampened skin and leave it on for 10 minutes.  Then rinse off with a warm washcloth.  You can repeat this process up to once a week!

            Cinnamon Face Mask.  Once again, this recipe only includes three ingredients: 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg.  Mix them all together and spread it evenly on your face.  Leave on for up to an hour.  It’s a long time but the results are worth it!  Rinse off with warm water and repeat 2-3 times a week.

 

                                                            Enjoy!

I’m sure you’ve been seeing this famous meme everywhere, “But first, coffee”.  Celebs and Instagramers alike have been captioning pics and sporting tees with the clever quote; and I don’t blame them, I love my coffee!  It’s so easy to hop in my car and grab a white chocolate mocha from Starbuck’s, but the crash I feel afterwards isn’t worth it.  The amount of sugar in one of those coffees completely overrides every health benefit coffee has.  Between boosting metabolism and lowering your chance at heart disease, it’s only right that we play off these benefits.  Check out how to enjoy your favorite drink by turning it into a health food!Chelsea Crockett- cinnamon and cocoa

  • Avoid sugar at all costs! If you can’t imagine your coffee without a hint of sweetness, try a dash of stevia.
  • Instead of heavy creamers for flavor, try adding cinnamon or cocoa to your coffee!
  • Do not use “fat-free” or “low-fat” creams. These are usually packed full of high fructose corn syrup to make up for lost taste. If you really need creamer, stick to the real stuff. 
  • Add a dash of skim milk for calcium.
  • Drink it black! This is the healthiest way to enjoy your coffee.

Hope you enjoy, Insiders!

Do you have a loaf of white bread, some cream cheese, and sugar? If so, then you have dessert! If you need something quick and easy to whip together before a family gathering or party then try these puppies out! Who knew white bred could be transformed into something so delicious?

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf white bread, crusts removedc1625404e90424d0e72960526cee0c60
  • 1 package softened cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup melted butter

 

Flatten the slices of bread with a rolling-pin. In a bowl, combine cream cheese and powdered sugar. In another bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Spread about 1 tablespoon of cheese mixture on each slice of bread. Roll up the slice of bread like a tube or a fruit roll up. Dip in melted butter, then in cinnamon-sugar. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. This recipe makes about 16 rolls, so keep that in mind when you are trying to figure out how many you should make!

These are super tasty both warm AND cold! Bon Appetite!

XOXO, Chels

Warm apple pie right out of the oven with the smell filling up the home is such a wonderful thing!

Here’s what you need:

Next, grease a cookie sheet and lay each crescent roll out.  Brush each roll with the melted butter and sprinkle your desired amount of cinnamon and brown sugar on each individual piece.  Lay an apple slice on the edge of each crescent and roll it up so that the sugar and spices are in the middle.  Place the cookie sheet Chelsea Crockett- apple pie bitesin the oven for 12-15 minutes and eat up!  Try these served alone or with ice cream.  Hope you enjoy these little slices of heaven!

Going to the salon to lighten your hair can be a pain.  Between the harsh chemicals and heavy price tag, it’s almost not worth it; not to mention the fading of the color over time!  Lucky for us girls, there are natural ways to lighten your hair this summer!  Getting sun-kissed hair has never been easier!Chelsea Crockett- lemon highlighter

  1. Boil one tea bag in water for 10 minutes and then rinse your hair with it. Leave the tea in your hair for 15 minutes before rinsing it out!
  2. Before lying out in the sun, squeeze a fresh lemon throughout your hair. The sun and lemon juice will act together to lighten your hair!
  3. Add cinnamon to a small amount of conditioner, enough to coat your entire head evenly, and brush it through your hair. Pin your hair up to leave it in for a few hours or for quicker results; use a shower cap so you can sleep with the mixture on overnight.
  4. Crush 8 or 9 vitamin C tablets and mix them together with your shampoo. Shampoo and condition as you normally would and rinse!

Remember, results take time!  You may need to do each treatment multiple times before noticing lighter hair!

Love,

Chelsea
