Your best friend is your sister from another mister. She knows all of your quirks and pet peeves, and she knows how to push all of your buttons at the same time ;). She is the one that helps you get over guys, and is always there with a tub of ice cream and a movie when things are rough. Here are 15 things that only your best friend understands.

 

  1. Why it’s totally acceptable to scream when “your song” comes on the radio.
  2. Your deepest insecurities.
  3. The nicknames you use for people.
  4. The things that you each like most about yourselves.
  5. When to let you get all wrapped up in your boyfriend and when to be with you 24/7 when it doesn’t work out.
  6. Your sense of humor.
  7. Why you have to awkwardly hide from certain people you see in public.10402641_450377931764082_4731870425089678851_n
  8. How necessary it is to watch your TV shows together.
  9. How great of a shower singer you truly are.
  10. The amount of time it’s really going to take you to get ready when you say twenty minutes.
  11. The loves you never really got over.
  12. How to reason with you when you are uncontrollably upset.
  13. What snacks to buy when you need to vent.
  14. The right moments to tell you when you’re being a jerk.
  15. The right moments to tell you that everyone else is being a jerk.

 

Does this list sound like you and your best friend? It sure sounds like mine!

XOXO, Chels

Summer is all about having fun, relaxing, and kicking it with friends; but most importantly, it’s about making memories.  With only 3 months out of the year school-free, it’s important to soak up the sun and take advantage of the free time.  I challenge you and your friends or family to make a summer bucket list!  Here are some ideas to get you started:Chelsea Crockett- roller coaster

  • Go to a lake and boat.
  • Save up some money and go on a shopping spree.
  • Do something that scares you (ex: ride a roller coaster).
  • Make homemade ice cream.
  • Go to an outdoor concert.
  • Have a picnic.
  • Run a 5K.
  • Go to a local carnival.
  • Travel to somewhere you’ve never been before.
  • Pull an all-nighter.
  • Have a backyard campout.
  • Go to the zoo.
  • Go to a baseball game.
  • Tie-dye.
  • Go on a hike or rock climb.

Make your own list and try to complete it before school starts.  Good luck Insiders!

With summer just around the corner, it’s hard to find the motivation to study for finals.  The changing warm weather makes it even harder to stay in the library for hours at a time.  It’s tough to avoid finals when they are usually a huge part of your grade!  Although there is nothing fun about studying, I’ve got a few tips and tricks to help make your next study session a little less painful!

Trying to cram all of your studying and work into one session can actually have a negative effect on your health and your grades.  It’s important to take breaks and give yourself time to breathe.  Although it may seem like a waste of time to leave your studying materials on your desk while you hit the gym, it will actually help in the long run!  Taking a break to exercise will increase blood flow and help improve your memory.  Don’t forget that your physical health is important too!

Make sure to snack!  Carrying around small, healthy snacks will give your brain the fuel it needs to keep on studying and retain information.  It is also very important to get enough sleep.  EvenChelsea Crockett- snacks for finals if you feel like you haven’t studied enough, close that textbook and hit the hay!  Lack of sleep will cause memory loss and confusion while taking a test or writing a paper.  Your brain cannot function properly if it’s running on empty!

Try studying with a group of friends!  Even if you’re not studying for the same test, just having other around will make you feel less lonely and give you more of a drive to study.  Just try not to talk or joke around the whole time!

Although finals may seem like a drag, be sure to treat yourself with proper care and reward yourself once the big test is over with!

Good luck Insiders!

Hey insiders!

It’s finally bonfire weather, which means big sweaters, s’mores, and memories made with your closest friends.  The weather’s just a little chilly, allowing you to bundle up by the fire and enjoy some apple cider.  Whether you’re going to a bonfire or hosting one, you’re going to need an outfit that’s going to be on fire (not literallyWink).

If the bonfire bash you’re attending is just a small get-together with friends, putting a lot of thought into your outfit isn’t needed.  A big sweatshirt and sweatpants is all you need to keep you warm and comfy while roasting marshmallows.Chelsea Crockett - Over-Sized Sweater Look

If you’re attending more of a party/bonfire, you’ll need a fashionable, yet warm, autumn outfit to wear.  Since over-sized sweaters are a huge trend in the fashion world, they’re perfect to throw on with your favorite pair of leggings.  Pair this with your favorite boots and you’re set.  I prefer combat boots because, in addition to keeping your toes warm, they’re also stylish and edgy.  If you want to accessorize, try wearing a scarf and purse to match.  Even throw on a beanie to make your look trendier.

Of course, you can always take the even dressier route.  Denim and plaid are both two styles that are hot in Hollywood right now.  If you choose to wear either of these patterns, try rocking a long-sleeved button up.  Instead of buttoning it up, leave it open and show off your favorite shirt or V-neck.  As for pants, simply wearing jeans or leggings will work just fine.

Good luck and have fun!

One of my favorite things to do in the spring is to have sleepovers with my best girlfriends.  Movies, painting nails, and sweet treats are all part of the fun, but have you ever wanted to switch up the typical sleepover?  On cool summer nights, having a campout in your backyard is so much fun!  I like to call it “glamping” (glamorous camping), because you get to campout, but still have the house with electricity and a bathroom!  I’ll give you all the tricks and tips to your perfect backyard campout.

Chelsea Crockett- backyard campout

First, find someone with a tent.  I typically have to ask my dad to set it up for me, but if you want to take on the challenge, go for it!  Invite all your friends over and make sure they bring their sleeping bags, pillows, and a flashlight.  Remember, you won’t have power!  Set up a radio or bring out your iHome to listen to fun music throughout the night.  Make up crazy dances or sing along under the stars.  If it gets hot, use an extension cord to bring a fan into the tent.  That should cool it down!  If possible, set up a fire!  It’s perfect for roasting s’mores, telling stories around the campfire, and enjoying the beautiful night.

Having a backyard campout with your friends is a great bonding experience.  Just enjoy your surroundings and most of all your friends.  If you don’t have a tent check these out!   http://tiny.cc/Tent

 

Have fun,

Chelsea

Prom can be an expensive adventure! Knowing how much it costs can sometimes put a damper on your excitement because you are constantly worrying about money. Here are 3 ways to save some moolah on prom so you can have the best night ever!

  1. Dinner: with a little planning ahead, you can save loads on your prom dinner! Use the site resteraunt.com to buy giftchelsea crockett homecoming cards for less than they are worth, for 10$ you can get a card worth 25$! Holy moly! And if you have a big group, you can get a 40$ card worth 100$!! If you all chip in, it will be super cheap.
  2. Hair: Instead of spending more than 50$ on an updoo, have a friend do your hair! If you have a girl friend that loves doing hair and is talented at it, she will be honored that you want her to do your hair!
  3. Pictures: If your parents or someone in your group’s parents have a nice camera, have them take your prom photos instead of spending money on a photographer! My dad takes my group’s pictures every year. He loves it! DaddyLiciousInsider!

Saving money is always a good idea, especially on things as pricy as prom! Hopefully these tips help you save on your big day!

XOXO, Chels

I love thrift shopping. You can find such cute stuff, and it’s so cheap! If you are in need of a girls night and want a super fun game to play together, I recommend the thrift store game! Here is how you play it:

 1. Split into teams of two.

2. The first team to find and photograph themselves with 10 out of the 20 items on the list wins! You can use your phone to take the pictures which makes it super quick and easy!chelsea crockett thrift store game

3. If the item you find is an article of clothing, then you have to wear it for the picture! NO EXCEPTIONS! 😉

4. You should probably spend at least a couple bucks in the store just to show some courtesy because you practically just used their store as a battleground!  

 Does this not sound like a total blast?! You all will be laughing so hard the whole time, and you will have an arsenal of awkward pictures of your friends because of all of the goofy clothes you will be trying on! It is a total win win situation! Only got 20$ in your pocket? Then go pop some tags at a thrift shop with your best buds!

 Happy thrifting!

XOXO, Chels

“So what do you want to do?” “I don’t know, what do YOU want to do?” Do you ever have this conversation when trying to figure out where to go/what to do on a date? Well…Chelsea to the rescue! I’m here with 5 unusual date ideas that will knock you and your beau’s socks off!

1. Go to a chain bookstore and leave notes to future readers in copies of your favorite books. How cool would it be to be browsing through your favorite books and find a note from a random stranger?  

2. Dress up as superheroes and stop at least one petty crime (like littering or jaywalking). You can be Superwoman and he can be your Superman 😉

3. Rent a movie you have never seen, put it on mute, and make up your own dialogue. This would be a blast because you can put your own words in and laugh at what the other person comes up with!ghk-couple-laughing-bed-lgn-6833259

4. Visit as many of your friends as you can in one night and perform pranks on them. One of my favorites? If it is cold outside, take cotton balls, dip them in water, and stick them to their cars! Just make sure that the people you are pranking are good natured and can take a joke, you don’t want to make them mad!

5. Go to a restaurant and use fake names. You both will have a blast because it is your own little inside joke!

 Have fun, love birds!

XOXO, Chels

            Hey insiders!

            Peer pressure gets to all of us.  Whether you’re in middle school, high school, or even in your adult years, we’re all tempted in different ways and forms.  It’s not fun or easy, but there are many ways to resist it.Chelsea Crockett - Peer Pressure

  • Stand your ground.  All of us have a set of rules and values for ourselves that we try to follow as much as possible.  If anyone tries to change those values, stand your ground.  Learn how to say no and follow your gut on what’s right.
  • Choose your friends wisely.  It’s easier to avoid peer pressure when you’re surrounded by good people that share the same values as you.  This way you won’t have to worry about them tempting you into doing something you’re not comfortable with.
  • Be confident.  Go into the situation with a mindset of “no one will change who I am or what I believe.”  Once you have a secure mindset, you’ll be a lot stronger and more confident in walking away. 
  • Think of the consequences.  Is the situation really worth the consequences?  Think very carefully about what you do before you do it.  Bad decisions can weigh on you and carry a big amount of guilt. 

             Although there are more ways to resist peer pressure, I find these four the most effective.  Remember, “To be popular isn’t always right and to be right isn’t always popular.”

                Hi all!

                It’s that time of year when we all decide to make changes for the new year.  Of course, exercising and eating better are always on many people’s lists.  This year, however, I would like to challenge you to think outside of the box and focus on goals to help yourself and others!  Here are a few ideas.Chelsea Crockett - New Years Resolutions                Happiness is good for your health and our happiness increases when we help others.  Volunteering is a great way to help others.  Find a local charity or animal shelter where you can give a hand or help to raise money for.  If you make volunteering a resolution, you will certainly be giving back to the community and that will help you to feel really good about yourself!
                Another healthy resolution would be to stay in touch with old friends or family.  So often our lives get so busy that we fail to keep in touch with those who mean so much to us.  Just spending a little extra time with grandparents can mean the world to them and you.  You can learn so much from their wisdom and you’ll never regret the time you spent to bond with them.
                Blessings to your New Year, Insiders!  Comment below and let me know what creative resolution you have made this year to think outside the box!

Hey everyone!
            Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!  So, it’s time to start thinking about how to celebrate.  You can show your love for that special someone or for your parents, grandparents, or friends.  One thing to think about is food!  When you think about it, most everything we do revolves around food.  Think about what your recipient would like most.  A box of candy, home baked cookies, Chinese take-out, a home cooked meal, or going to a favorite restaurant are among some of the ideas to choose from. 
            Next, you are going to need a special gift.  Gifts don’t always have to be bought.  Chelsea Crockett - CouponsGifts from the heart can often be simple.  You can write a letter to your loved one to tell them how much you really care and to thank them for bringing such joy to you.  Another fun idea is to make coupons for others.  You could write as many as you want.  Some examples would be:  A coupon for cooking dinner OR making the beds OR pizza and a movie night with your parents/grandparents.  Remember it’s the thought that goes into the gift that matters.
            I hope some of these ideas help to make your Valentine’s Day extra special this year.  Remember it’s not necessarily a time to spend money on others, but a time to speak from the heart about what matters most…..those you love!

Hi Insiders!

            Halloween is such a fun time of the year.  It’s the one day you can dress up as anything you want and not act yourself for a day.  So what do you do when you’re too old to Trick-or-Treat?  I’ve got a few fun Halloween ideas to keep the evening as exciting as it as when you were a kid!Chelsea Crockett- bonfire

            Have all of your friends over for a bonfire.  Instead of dressing up in your own costume, create a themed bonfire.  Have everyone show up in their wackiest pajamas or as their favorite Disney character.  Complete your bonfire with s’mores, spooky music, and ghost stories.  Put plenty of blankets outside, so everyone can cuddle up and enjoy the night out by the fire.

            If you’re looking for a lazier night with a few friends, give your parents the night off and watch scary movies and hand out candy to the neighborhood children.  Although you’ll be staying indoors, you’ll still be in the Halloween spirit!

            If you’re planning on going all out this year, invite all of your friends over for a Halloween bash!  Clear out your basement, have all of your friends dress up, and dance the night away.  Be sure to provide plenty of crazy Halloween Chelsea Crockett- Halloween donutssnacks, like donut eyeballs (donut holes with red goo as the veins and a blue M&M as the iris) and a long music playlist.  You could even set up a station to make your own caramel apples.  Be creative with your party!

Happy Halloween!

            Hey insiders!  When it comes to joining a new school, I think of nerves and wanting to fit in.  Some of you may have moved to a new state and already have butterflies about the first day of class.  Others could be transitioning into high school or junior high.  Whatever it is, we all have those first-day-of-school nerves that we just can’t shake off!  Here are a few tips to help calm you down.Chelsea Crockett - School

            #1: Be yourself!  When it comes to making new friends, being yourself is the perfect way to find a group of friends that fit you.  This way you can have fun without trying to be someone you’re not.

            #2: Join clubs!  Whether it’s a volleyball or art club, you’ll be sure to find people with the same interests as you!  You’ll also have a fun time while doing it!

            #3: Don’t get into the wrong crowd!  If you ever feel yourself uncomfortable with your new group of friends, don’t feel the need to stay with it.  Peer pressure is an awful thing and it’s easier to get out in the beginning than trying to use the same excuses over and over again. 

            Joining a new school is not as nearly as bad as everyone thinks!  With these tips, there’s no need to be nervous.  Just be yourself and have fun!

            Hey everyone!  Because the weather is so nice during this season, it’s perfect for outside activities.  Water parks, camping, and swimming are all perfect things to do during a hot, sunny day in the summer.  One thing you may have not thought of is the drive-in. 

            If you have a drive-in near you, it’s a perfect summer way to see that new movie you’ve been wanting to see.  Whether it’s with your family or your best friends, it’s a fun way to see the film.  My favorite thing about the drive-in is bringing a bunch of snacks for you and your guests to enjoy!  Popcorn, candy, and soda are perfectWink.Chelsea Crockett - Drive-In

            Maybe you can’t access a drive-in near you, but that’s okay!  There’s another creative way to spend your night!  If you take a projector and set it up facing a solid wall or possibly your garage you’ve made your own drive-in movie theater!  You can set out a few blankets or chairs and have a movie night right in your own yard!  Perfect!
