I love using products that are free from preservatives, chemicals, and dyes. The more I can use natural products the better! Here is how to make your very own all natural shaving cream to keep your legs smooth and your skin healthy.

Ingredients:homemade-shave-cream-3

  • 2/3 cup shea butter
  • 2/3 coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • -10-20 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda

First, melt 2/3 cup of coconut oil and shea butter together, and then turn off the heat and stir in 1/4 cup of olive oil. When it is all melted, add in 10-20 drops of lavender essential oil.     Give it a good stir, and then set it in the fridge to harden. Once it has become solid, remove it from the fridge and let it soften slightly. Add this and 2 tablespoons of baking soda to an electric mixer and beat until it’s super fluffy and looks like icing. Store it in a container in a dark, cool place, and apply it generously when you are using it!

Hair De-tangler DIY

Now that my hair has grown back and is almost as long as it was in my first years of high school, pulling a brush through it after a shower is nothing short of a nightmare. The only way I can get all the tangles out of my hair is if I use detangler. This is a sort of leave-in conditioner that both moisturizes and helps work the tangles out of your hair! Here is how to easily make your very own.

Ingredients:download

  • 2-3 tablespoons conditioner
  • 2 cups distilled water
  • 12 drops of essential oil
  • Spray bottle

The amount of distilled water you use depends on your spray bottle size. Mix 1.5 to 2 cups of water with 2-3 tbsp of conditioner in a bowl. Add in some essential oils to spruce it up and to give your hair a fresh scent. I like to use rosemary oil because it promotes strong hair. Use a funnel to pour the mixture into the spray bottle, and there you have it! Spray on damp hair after you shower and your hair will be soft, tangle free, and shiny!

I like using a leave-in conditioner on my hair after I shower because it hydrates it and protects it from damage. Plus, it makes it super soft and shiny! Also, making your own ensures that you aren’t putting unnecessary chemicals on your hair.

These days, bath bombs are all the rage. That is why when I saw this cool diy where you can reuse K-cups from Keurig coffee makers to make your own bath bombs, I was all over it! Recycle AND make yourself an awesome smelling homemade bath bomb!

You’ll need the all-plastic k-cups for this DIY. Clean out the cups, dump the left over coffee grounds out, and discard any of the netting in the cup. Fill the bottom of the cup with glitter or sprinkles or dried flowers anything you think would look cute on a bath bomb!2015-04-Bath-Bomb2-e1429042607773

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp sprinkles or dried flowers
  • 8 ounces baking soda
  • 4 ounces citric acid
  • 4 ounces cornstarch
  • 4 ounces Epsom salts
  • ¾ teaspoon water
  • 2 teaspoons essential oil
  • 2 ½ teaspoons almond oil
  • 6 drops food coloring (optional)

Fill the bottom of each cup with glitter or sprinkles or dried flowers, anything you think would look cute on a bath bomb! In a bowl, combine the citric acid, baking soda, Epsom salts and cornstarch. In a separate bowl, stir together almond oil, water, essential oil, and food coloring. Pour these wet ingredients into the dry ones and stir together until the mixture begins to clump. Press the paste into the K- Cups and allow them to dry overnight. To remove the bombs from the cups, cut a slit into each cup and peel the plastic back.

Now go hop in the bath and try out one of your new fancy, homemade bath bombs! These also make great gifts.

Do you have trouble with keeping your makeup looking fresh all day long? Sometimes I feel like by the time I get home after school my makeup is cakey and my eyeliner is smudged all the way from here to China. Yikes! Makeup setting spray helps eliminate awkward situations like that by making your makeup stay on and smudge free all day long. Here are two recipes for you to make your own setting spray!36d97892c2d1ce33ce3381f8f5a6ee75

Witch Hazel Makeup Setting Spray

  • 1/4 cup of witch hazel
  • 1/2 cup water

Pour three tablespoons of water into a spray bottle, then add just one tablespoon of witch hazel. Shake the bottle for about a minute and put it in the fridge.

Aloe Vera Makeup Setting Spray

  • 3 parts water
  • 1 part aloe vera

Pour up to about 1/4th of the bottle of 100% Pure Aloe Vera gel into a spray bottle. Then fill the rest of the bottle with warm water. Shake the container until all the contents are mixed thoroughly.

Both recipes give you natural, refreshing setting spray that will give your makeup serious staying power!

When you take into account how often you use makeup removing wipes, which is probably once or twice a day, and then take in to account how much they cost, you find that makeup removing wipes are uncomfortably expensive. They are so handy at night when I am taking off my makeup because they make sure I get all of the impurities off of my face before I go to bed. I found a way to make my own makeup remover pads for just pennies and I am excited to try them out! Here is how to make them:

Ingredients:DIY_makeup_remover_pads_coconut_oil_deep_facial_cleansing_routine_Biore_2

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 ½ tbsp. baby shampoo
  • 1/8 tsp oil of your choice (coconut oil, olive oil, baby oil, etc.)
  • Round cotton pads
  • Small jar with a lid

Mix the shampoo, water, and oil together in a cup. Pour a little bit of this mixture into the jar you will be storing the makeup pads in. Place the round cotton pads on top of the solution you just poured into the jar and press down on them to make sure they are getting wet. Repeat this step until the jar is full of damp makeup pads. If you have any of the liquid left over save it for when you need to make more makeup remover pads! Like I said before, these pads are super cheap and easy to make and will last you muuuuuch longer than the pricey ones you buy at the store.

 

Comment below if you want to hear about more money-saving beauty diy’s! Also, this DIY works best if you have normal to dry skin.

Your hair is always begging for moisture, especially in the winter time when the air is cold and dry! Products you use to style your hair, such as hair spray and mousse, can dry your hair out even more. Want to know how you can make your very own hair spray that will actually hydrate and strengthen your hair as you use it…made with all natural ingredients? Who wouldn’t!

Ingredients:download

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3-4 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 2 cups distilled water

Melt the coconut oil in the microwave and add it to a spray bottle. Next add in the distilled water and essential oil. Shake it reaaally good. It works great on both damp and dry hair! Also, make sure to shake it before every use because the ingredients will naturally separate.

Now this hair spray doesn’t have as strong of a hold as store bought sprays, but it does a much better job of keeping the frizz away!

I have to admit, the majority of makeup removers burn my skin. They sting when I go to wipe my makeup off at night and are packed with harmful chemicals. Plus, they can get pretty pricey! Here are 3 diy makeup removers that are easy on your skin and on your wallet.

Number 1:

  • Ingredients: Olive oil, baby shampoo and wash (tear free), waterimages (4)
  • Combine ½ tbsp of baby shampoo and ¼ tsp olive oil in a mason jar, then add ½ cup of water. Shake it up before use, then use a cotton swab to apply it.

Number 2:

  • Ingredients: 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp canola oil, 1 capsule vitamin E.
  • Combine ingredients, break the capsule and add in the vitamin E (it has great healing properties), and shake it all together! Again, apply with a cotton swab.

Number 3:

  • Ingredients: 2 tbsp witch hazel, 2 tbsp oil, 2 tbsp water
  • Combine ingredients and shake well before using. Like the ones above, use a cotton swab to apply.


Hopefully these formulas give you some makeup-removing options to choose from!

I love my EOS lip balm. I really do. But what I don’t love is when it runs out! Instead of throwing away your old EOS balm containers, reuse them and refill them with your own homemade DIY lip balm! Here is how.c8d31c4d0e17660851ef131b4353aa33

Remove the cap from the balm container and carefully pop the base from the bottom (there are YouTube vids to help describe this process, see a video HERE). Once you have deconstructed your container as to the YouTube instructions, you are ready to make your balm!

You will need a teaspoon of your favorite oil such as almond or sunflower seed oil. You will also need a ½ teaspoon of coconut oil or cocoa butter. You will need 1/8 tsp of Vitamin E oil also. Place all of the ingredients except the Vitamin E oil and any essential oils you may want into a glass bowl and sit it in a bowl of hot water. Stir until they are all melted, and then add in the Vitamin E oil and 4 drops of essential oil (if you prefer your balm to have a scent) and mix well.

Carefully pour the balm into your container as per the YouTube instructions, allow the balm to harden for a few hours, and then make sure your pieces are all in place and ready to go!

Easy peasy!

Blanket scarves are my new obsession. They are huge, chunky scarves that could literally pass as a blanket. The only problem with my obsession? Blanket scarves are mucho expensive. My favorite one from Zara is 42$! Aint nobody got money for that! So, I used my noggin and came up with a solution to my conundrum. Here is how to make your very own blanket scarf!74295fc6e466b4bab6627ad9c73b6ce3

  1. Purchase 2-2.5 yards of flannel fabric. I got mine at Joanne’s fabric store, but you can sometimes find it at Walmart or any other fabric store!
  2. Using the patterned flannel edge as a guide, trim the edges of each side of your scarf.
  3. Grab the loose threads on the side and pull them down gently, fraying the edges of the scarf. Keep doing this until there are no loose threads and you have a nicely frayed edge. Repeat on each side of the scarf. The frayed edges add a nice rustic flare to the scarf, but if you want a more clean cut look then leave the edges un-frayed.

I cannot wait to make a whole truckload of these babies! Will YOU be trying out this cozy DIY?

XOXO, Chels

I LOVE BB creams, and I was SO excited to find this DIY on how to make it myself! It is cheaper and you can customize it to your skin type.  Since I have oily skin, I make it so that it would be long lasting and fight shine. Here is what you will need:

–          Your favorite sunscreen- Sunscreen that is sweat and water resistant is best. Try to find something that isn’t too greasy so it doesn’t clog your pores. Plus, your BB cream will stay on forever if you use a water resistant sunscreen!

 chelsea crockett sunblock

–          Your fav moisturizer- if you have dry skin, use a creamy moisturizer. If you have oily skin, try an oil free one.

Chelsea Crockett moisturizer

–          Your desired foundation- Liquid/cream foundation is best for this DIY. It mixes best with the other ingredients. Pick a shade that matches your skin tone!

Chelsea crockett liquid foundation

–           Chafing gel- Crazy, right? It is the main ingredient in several makeup primers, and it makes your BB cream go on smooth and stay nice and matte. Just a word of warning, this gel causes breakouts in some ladies. If your skin is prone to breakouts, don’t put as much in or just leave it out. It has not caused me any issues, but I can’t promise it will be the same for you. 

Chelsea crockett chafing gel

–          A bottle to put it in!

 

Cool, right? If you try out this nifty DIY, comment below and let me know how it works out for you!

When I am at the gym or out an about, I see girls wearing adorable, cut-up t-shirts. They cut cute designs into the back of the shirts or they make the t-shirt into a tank top or crop top. There are so many adorable styles that you can transform your t-shirt into, but today we are going to explore the “bow back” style.

First, you need to locate a t-shirt. This shirt can be an old camp T-shirt that could use a little remodeling, or it could diy-tee-instructionsbe a shirt from your favorite sport’s team that you just want to spruce up a bit. The first step is to lay the shirt out face down
on a flat surface. Next, take a good scissors and cut the collar out of the shirt. Don’t discard the fabric that you cut off of the collar, because you will use it later. Next, draw to horizontal lines, about 4″-6″ apart on the back of your tee. The lines should stop at least a few inches away from the sides of the tee. Cut along the lines. Take the piece of material you saved from the neck and wrap it around the center of the strip of fabric that you created with the cuts above. Add a dab of glue to secure the ends of the ribbing together to create a circle. The back of your shirt should now look like there is a giant bow in the middle!

I love this sweet shirt! It is so cute and flirty. Are YOU going to try this on one of your old T-shirts?

XOXO, Chels

I got the idea and pictures HERE.

Do you ever get random problem zits that drive you crazy? You wake up and look in the mirror to find

that Mount Everest has planted itself smack-dab in the middle of your forehead. Lovely right? I’ve got

a recipe for a homemade zit zapper.

DSC_0596

Ingredients:

-Coconut Oil

-Tea Tree Oil

-Lip Balm Tubes

On the stove top, melt 1/8 cup of coconut oil. Add in just a few drops of tea tree oil (no more

than 5). Mix these ingredients to blend them together and then use an eye drop dropper

to add into the lip balm tubes. It should only take a few minutes for the coconut oil to cool

and firm up. Store the tubes in the fridge so they don’t melt and use whenever you need

to target a blemish or zit! It is great when you need a quick spot treatment. Why does this

mixture work? Coconut Oil is naturally antibacterial and anti-fungal. It helps with redness and

puffiness and will help fight bacteria. Tea Tree Oil is also antibacterial and anti-fungal so it

gives it an extra kick. Mother nature has your back, ladies!

Next time you have a zit the size of Montana on your face, slap some of this stuff right on it!

XOXO, Chels

Blackheads can be such a hassle, ya know? They can make your skin so clogged and yucky. There is a way to give yourself an in-home facial that will clear those pores right up! Here is how to give yourself a facial steam!

downloadAll you need is a large bowl and some semi-hot water. Soak a washcloth in the water, wring it out, and then press it to your face. Repeat this step a couple of times. Once you are done with this, take your face and lead it towards the bowl, hovering your face over the hot water. Then, place a towel over your head to make sure no hot air escapes. The hot air will open up your pores so you can clean them out and it takes the oil and dirt build up off of your skin! Keep your head leaned over the bowl for about 5 minutes to allow the hot water to do its thing. After that, wash it with a good exfoliating face wash and moisturize!

 

Who knew getting an at-home facial could be that easy!

If you are like me, then you love having pictures displayed around your room. They remind me of the good times I have had and the great people I have had them with. Picture frames can sometimes be a bit pricey, though, and can be a little plain! I found a great DIY to help display those photos in a super cute way! Check it out:

download (3)

What you need:

–          Clothes pins

–          Cardboard

–          Pictures

Cut a medium sized circle out of your cardboard. Make it look like a donut, with the center cut out. If you want, you can cover the ring with decorative paper or fabric to add a little extra oomf to it! Next, hot glue your clothes pins onto the cardboard ring. Make sure they are evenly spaced out and spread out enough that you can fit multiple pictures around the ring without being too crowded. Boom, you are finished! If you want, you can make multiple clothes pin frames and hang them close together in your room to create wall art. Sweet, right?

Show off your artistic side with these cute frames!
