White teeth are such an attractive attribute! They make your smile dazzle and draw people’s eyes to you. What if I told you that I have a diy recipe for stunning white teeth? Well I do! Stay tuned for the recipe for diy white teeth.

 

What you will need:

–          Hydrogen peroxidechelsea crockett toothpaste

–          Baking soda

–          Regular mouthwash

–          Toothpaste

How you use it:

Mix ½ hydrogen peroxide with ½ mouthwash mixture. Swish the mixture around in your mouth for a minute and rinse. Then brush your teeth with the toothpaste and baking soda mixture. To do this mix a bit of toothpaste with 1 teaspoon of baking soda plus half a teaspoon of water. Mix this thoroughly until it is the consistency of paste. Brush your teeth with the mixture. Now do not use this mixture every day! Only use this once a week at most because of the acidity of the peroxide. Now get ready for a bright, brilliant white smile!

Pie and ice cream, who doesn’t love that famous combination?! Mixing the two together is like heaven on a plate! So how could you turn the two into a shake?  It’s simpler than you’d think and the combinations are endless!Chelsea Crockett- blueberry pie shake

Turning a pie into a shake may sound weird to some of you! I promise it’s delicious.  All you need is a blender, ice cream, and your favorite flavor of pie.  Place one cup of ice cream and a slice of pie in the blender, but get rid of the end crust of the pie!  Blend the two together and enjoy!  You’ve got a thick and creamy shake!  Some of my favorite combinations are cinnamon ice cream and apple pie, butterscotch ice cream and peach pie, and vanilla ice cream and blueberry pie!

This sweet treat is perfect to make when you’ve got left over pie from a get-together or holiday! It’s also totally acceptable to run to the store and grab a pie!  When you have a sweet tooth, you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do!

I hope you enjoy this wacky shake!

XOXO,

Dorm rooms are the perfect place to express your personality and personal style! These simple DIY’s can spruce up your dorm room and make it feel a little more “you”!

 

Photo wall art: What makes your dorm room more “you” than pictures of your friends and family?! There are some really cool ways to display your photos. One way is to arrange them in cool shapes, such as a heart, like the example below! You can also take string and attach it to your wall with thumb tacks and then hang pictures on the string with clothes pins, like the picture below!

Another DIY that not only spruces up your dorm but is also fab for storage is colored jars! By taking mason jars and swishing paint around in the jar, you coat the inside and create a super adorable room accent! You can keep pens and pencils in them, hair ties, paper clips, anything that you want!

The last way that you can make your dorm feel more perky is by hanging twinkling lights inside your dorm, whether it is from the ceiling, your bed, or on your walls. Twinkling lights can give your room a calming sense and help you feel more like home, and they can turn any gloomy dorm room into a twinkling, cheery one!

Hopefully these help you brighten up your dorm room!

After a long summer of being in the sun, our skin could use some pampering.  A great way to relax and nurture your skin is with a DIY pumpkin facial mask!  Half a cup of canned pumpkin has 953 mg of vitamin A in it. With its wrinkle-fighting properties and tons of vitamins, this orange fruit soothes and hydrates tired skin.

Chelsea Crockett - Pumpkin Face MaskSome of us are getting older and probably won’t be trick or treating for Halloween.  Wouldn’t it be fun to have some friends over for a mini spa party?  Especially because Halloween is on a Friday this year!  Have your friends bring some snacks, you provide the drinks and the ingredients for the DIY pumpkin mask. Everyone at the party could mix their own pumpkin mask and then apply to their face!  Be sure to snap some pictures because I’m sure you’ll look awesome with pumpkin smeared all over your faces :).

Here is a recipe you could try.  Feel free to look up others online and have fun!  The ingredients you will need are: 2 cups of canned pumpkin, 4 tablespoons of unflavored yogurt, 4 tablespoons of honey, and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.  Combine ingredients, smooth onto face, and relax for 10 minutes.  Then, rinse off mask with warm water.

If you have another recipe, feel free to share it with me below!

Happy fall! – Chelsea

Use Baby Socks to Curl Your Hair!

I bet when you saw the title of this blog you went “Whaaaaaat?!” I am all about “no heat curls” and I love finding new ways to do them. No heat curls are the best way to give your hair body and curl without damaging it. Here is how to use baby socks to curl your hair!

  1. Go to the store and buy a package of infant socks. Your hair should be damp when you start the hair curling process.NO-HEAT-CURLS-WITH-BABY-SOCK-200x300
  2. Take a section of your hair and brush through it. Spray the section with a spritz of hairspray. The smaller the section, the tighter the curl. I prefer large curls!
  3. Place the ends of the hair across the toes of the sock and roll the sock up towards your head. When you get to the scalp, take the opening of the sock and turn it inside out over the hair, just like you would attach two socks together when folding laundry.
  4. Repeat this process over your whole head. You may look a little goofy for a little while, but in the morning when you take those socks out you will have beautiful bouncy curls!

So, go to sleep, and in the morning you will have curly hair without heat! Try this sweet trick out and comment below to tell me how you like it! Who knew baby socks could serve such an interesting purpose?

Do you have any eye shadow that you just don’t use? I have a few colors that I never wear because they don’t go with my eyes and skin shade. I don’t like to let anything go to waste, so I found a way to make my unwanted eye shadow into nail polish! Or, if you totally love a certain color of eye shadow but have never found that color in a nail polish, then you can make your own polish! Here is how it’s done:

  1. Break up the eye shadow into a powder and then pour it into a disposable bowl.chelsea crockett nail polish diy
  2. Pour clear nail polish into the bowl with the eye shadow in it, and stir the mixture around with a q-tip.
  3. Take a nail polish brush and use it to paint your nails! You now have your very own custom-made color! And, you got it at a fraction of a price or store bought nail polish.

This DIY is quick and easy, and it is made with items you already have at home! Don’t waste that unwanted eye shadow! Put it to good use!

Who doesn’t love soft lips?  I know I do!  Soft, smooth lips make wearing lipstick look better and give your face an all-around better look.  I mean, cracked lips aren’t exactly attractive?!  Many lip balms and other lip products moisturize your lips for a short period of time, but do not remove the dead skin.  This dead skin is what gives your look that cracked appearance…gross.  I will show you how to make a once a week DIY lips scrub with 3 simple ingredients.  It’s SO simple!

Chelsea Crockett- DIY Lip Scrub LipsAll you need for the lip scrub is sugar, 1 tsp. of honey, and ½ tsp. of olive oil.  Mix the olive oil and honey together in a small bowl and then add as much sugar as you please.  Go for a good consistency.  You don’t want to cover up the honey and olive oil with too much sugar.  I like to use about 2 tbsp.  Once all the ingredients are mixed up, apply a small amount to your lips, and rub them together for about a minute.  Remove the mixture with a wet paper towel and there you have it! Soft, luscious lips!

Love,

Chels

Skinny Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino

When I heard the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino was soon coming back to Starbucks, I did a little happy dance. Okay a big happy dance. The return of the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino means the return of fall, and I am so ready for that. The only thing that put a stop to my happy dancing was when I saw how many calories were in one of those puppies. The small has 300 calories, the medium as 460 and a large has 630 calories. Ouch. Not to mention the drinks cost as much as a small house. Okay maybe not that much, but still… Anyway, I found a cheaper, healthier wa
y to get my Pumpkin Frappuccino fix right at home. Here is how!

Ingredients:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups cold coffee, cooled in the refrigerator overnightFrapp
  • 1 and 1/4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup 
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

In a small bowl, whisk the milk, pumpkin, maple syrup, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg together until combined.  Pour into ice cube tray and freeze. Once coffee is cold and pumpkin ice cubes are frozen, add the cubes to your blender and blend on high until smooth and icy. If your cubes aren’t blending well, add milk. Take a quick taste test and add more syrup or spices as needed. Top this yummy treat with whipped cream to finish the job!

I don’t know about you, but I am so excited to try this cheaper, healthier Starbucks alternative! Do you think this sounds totally delicious? Comment below!

XOXO, Chels

Who agrees that when you look cute when you work out you feel better and work harder? I know I do! When I wear cute clothes to workout I feel better about my workout. Do you have an old t-shirt that is shoved in the back of your drawer screaming “don’t forget about me!”? Take that poor shirt out, and transform it into a cute workout shirt with me!

chelsea crockett workout shirt1. Find an old t-shirt that you don’t mind cutting up. Lay it out flat on the floor. Cut the bottom hem off of the shirt and also cut the hem of the collar off. Lay these pieces to the side.

2. Cut the sleeves off of the shirt so that it looks like a tank top. In other words, leave about a two inch wide strap.

3. Turn the shirt over so that the back is facing you. Pull the back of the tshirt straps together and wrap the extra strip you got by cutting the bottom hem off of the shirt around them. It should look like this when you are done:

4. Secure the wrapped straps together.

Viola! Now you have a cute shirt to go work your booty off in!

Get your sweat on, ladies!

Summer nights with friends are the best kind of nights. Bonfires, night swims, county fairs, so many things to do! There’s one thing that can put a damper on summer evening fun, and that is pesky mosquitos. They literally suck the fun out of everything! Here are a few remedies to help stop that nasty itching and irritation so you can get back out there and have a blast with your buds.GRW-10903-6

  1. Cold: An ice pack will help stop the itching and reduce swelling in the bite. Put some ice cubes into a plastic bag and hold it against the area for about 10 minutes.
  2. Citrus: Citrus fruits like oranges and limes contain citric acid, which relieves swelling and pain. You can lay thin slices of lemon or orange over the bite and leave it on there for 10 minutes!
  3. Vinegar: This remedy works regardless of which kind of vinegar you use! Soak a cotton ball in vinegar and apply it to the bite.

Don’t let obnoxious bug bites ruin your fun! Try these simple, easy, cheap home remedies next time a pesky mosquito decides to make you his next victim.

School supplies are soooooo boring!  I’d have to say, the standard notebook isn’t very appealing to the eye.  If you aren’t able to buy binders, folders, and notebooks in multiple colors, it can be tough to tell your classes apart.  Instead of using a black sharpie to designate a folder to each class, try personalizing it with a few of these crafty tips!Chelsea Crockett- personalized school supplies

  1. Create a backdrop for binders! Using a binder with a clear pocket on the front, print off a piece of paper with a fun design and font with your name and class on it and slide it in the pocket. Now you’ve got a one-of-a-kind binder!
  2. Grab some stickers! Sticker letters are a fun way to label school supplies without being boring. Try labeling your notebook in glitter or neon letters to add a little fun to your supplies.
  3. If you want to get extra crafty, try buying small decals of your first initial. You can use these to wrap around pencils, highlighters, and pens!

Comment below if you have any great ideas for personalized school supplies!  It’s an easy way to make going back to school a little more exciting!

Throwing on a bright colored bracelet can spice up any outfit!  Depending on what you’re wearing, finding the right style and color of bracelet can be tricky.  Luckily, there’s a way to customize your own bangles!

What you’ll need:

  • plain metal bangles
  • super glue
  • colorful embroidery floss
  • charms with an open and close clasp (optional)
  • plain rings with an open and close clasp (optional)

Start by placing a small dab of glue on the outside of the bangle and gluing the end of the floss to it.  Once the glue dries and the floss is in place, begin wrapping the Chelsea Crockett- diy colorful banglefloss tightly around the bangle.  If you feel the need to do so, you can add small dots of glue throughout the bangle to ensure that the floss will stay in place.  Once the entire bangle is covered in bright, beautiful colors, secure the floss by cutting it and gluing the end with one more dab of super glue.

If you want to continue on and add charms to your bangle, then add as many charms and plain rings as you want!  Since a bangle cannot be opened up, it’s important for the charms to have a way to be opened and placed on the bracelet.  Try making an array of these bangles to wear up your arm.  It’s the perfect way to add a little color to any outfit!

Have fun!

Chelsea

Are you in need of a quick cool down snack? Then try this super fast sorbet in a bag! The serving is just the right size for the Insider in need of a quick sweet treat!

Ingredients:chelsea crockett

  • One gallon size Ziploc® brand Freezer Bag
  • One pint size Ziploc® brand Freezer Bag
  • 6 tablespoons rock salt
  • One tray of ice cubes
  • One half cup juice
  • Optional: cream, sugar
  1. First, make the ice bag. To do this, empty a full try of ice cubes into a 1 gallon Ziploc bag.
  2. Second, make the juice bag.  Pour half a cup of fruit juice into a 1 pint Ziploc freezer bag. To make the sorbet creamier, add one cup of cream and a tablespoon of sugar here. Squeeze all the air out of the bag and check that you securely seal the bag, and place it into the large bag of ice.

Eyebrows can be tricky. Some girls are born with naturally gorgeous eyebrows that take no grooming or care. Others who aren’t so lucky have to constantly keep up with the shaping of their brows. Luckily, there is a homemade remedy to try right in your home!Chelsea Crockett - Eyebrow Waxing

Getting your eyebrows waxed at a hair or nail salon can often be expensive and risky. There’s a way to shape them at home just how you want them and without spending too much money. Take a trip to your local grocery store and buy honey, salt, and flour if you do not already have any at home. Then, take a small dish and mix your ingredients with water to make it runnier. When you wax your brows, you have to be extremely careful. Make sure you are very cautious as to where the wax is placed or may possibly drip. Then apply with a Q-tip or spoon. It is best to have your mom or friend do it for you while you are laying down to avoid the wax running into places you don’t want it. After that, place a small piece of a soft cloth onto the wax. Make sure you are very gentle when lightly pressing down! Then wait about 10 minutes and quickly rip off the cloth. Continue this method wherever you want the hair removed! The key is to take your time and be super careful.

Hopefully this helps next time you want to shape up your fierce eyebrows! Good luck!
