Are you ready for you mind to be blown?! Mine totally is. I saw a tutorial on how to make lipstick out of crayons and I knew I just had to share it with all of you! Now you can make lipstick in every color imaginable with just TWO ingredients! Here’s how:

All you need is coconut oil, Crayola crayons, and some containers to put your homemade lipstick in. You can clean out old lipstickmakeup containers and use ‘em! Choose the color that you would like to use and then remove the wrappers from the crayons. Break the crayons into about 4 pieces. Put a glass jar in the center of a pot and add water to the pot. Don’t get any water in the jar! Add about a teaspoon of coconut oil to the jar and put it on the stove. Warm it up slowly. Once the coconut oil has melted all the way, add your crayon. Add 1 piece of crayon per teaspoon. You can even mix and match colors and create your own shade! If you add too much crayon the lipstick it will be a little dry, and if you don’t add enough it will be sheer and glossier.  Play around with it!

This recipe is totally safe, too. Most lipsticks are made with petroleum which comes from oil, and crayons are made for children and are non-toxic. No worries!

Now go have fun mixing and matching colors to create your very own lipstick!

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!

We live in the “selfie” age. Selfies are fun to take! Do you ever look at a girl’s Instagram selfies and thing “how DO they DO it?!” They seem to have the perfect selfie strategy. Here are 7 tips on how to take a great selfie.chels choose joy

  1. Wear the right makeup: Always add a little extra blush, because the amount that you see in person only shows up a little bit in photos.
  2. Location location location: Find a cool background or a pretty place to take your selfie! It will make your selfie more interesting and more fun to look at!
  3. Find your lighting: A good selfie always needs good lighting. Find your perfect lighting and light that smile up!
  4. Avoid the duck face: Pretty please! If you cannot find the right pose, just opt for your sweetest smile!
  5. Be smart: Everyone loves a good selfe, but when your Instagram page is nothing but selfies, we would have to diagnose you with an addiction! Diversify your page! Add some variety!

There is a science to selfies, and I have broken it down for you! Now go take the most drop dead gorgeous selfie ever!

How many of y’all own a trampoline? Trampolines are not only a super fun way to pass the time, but they are also a great way to exercise! Did you know that jumping on the trampoline for 10 minutes is the same amount of exercise as a 30 minute jog? Totally true! Here is an exercise routine to crank out on your trampoline to burn through some calories!

  1. Straight jump: Keep your arms straight over your head and keep them raised as you jump up. Jump up, keeping toe touchyour body as straight as you can, and then land with your body straight. Repeat this 30 times.
  2. Seat drop: Do a “but bomb”. Everyone can do these! Do 30 of them in a row!
  3. Do 30 toe touches.
  4. Do 30 “tuck” jumps, where you tuck your knees to your chest when you are up in the air.
  5. 30 jumping jacks.

If your family has a trampoline, then you can knock this routine out in just a few minutes and burn through those calories! AND have a great time doing it!

Are you and your boo looking for some fun, healthy ways to spend some quality time this summer? What could be better than spending time with your darlin’ and being active at the same time? Here are some super sweet ways to do just that!

Dancing: If you can get your guy to go dancing with you, then that is a sign that he REALLLY likes you. Go country line dancing or ballroom dancing or salsa dancing, any kind of dancing! It will get your heart pumping AND you can be spun around the dance floor by your boo.

Canoeing: This activity gets you off your phones and out into nature! Grab a canoe and your man and paddle away! Your arms will get a killer workout, and you will also get to enjoy some beautiful scenery.

Berry Picking: Summer is the season for fresh berries, and many larger farms let you pick your own. If you cannot find a place to pick your own berries, you can always find them at a farmers market! You can spend time together perusing the market together, and then bake something totally yummy with the produce you find!Alaska Berry Picking

Are you going to try some of these sweet ideas this summer?

Have you ever seen Princess Diaries? If so, think back to the scene where Mia and her mom are in their house, throwing darts at paint-filled balloons, letting off some serious steam. Did anyone else feel insanely jealous of them?! I know I totally did. Well, I have now added this activity to my summer bucket list, and I think you should, too! This is how you play “Paint Balloon Darts”.61cd4d6970b2e55742d48860371f5976

You just need some water balloons, some washable paint, darts, and a canvas or wooden back board! Fill a bottle
with a narrow tip with paint and use it to fill your balloons. Fill them up about ¼ of the way, and then tie them off. Use pushpins to attach them to your wooden backboard or canvas. After you have done so, stand back and let ‘er rip! You can have a group of people split into teams and compete to see which group can bust more balloons than the other, or you can just toss the darts for fun! If you use a canvas, you can save it and it can be a fun art piece!

I hope you ladies can use this fun game to let off some steam this summer just like Mia Thermopolis, Princess of Genovia, did. 😉

XOXO, Chels

Growing up, every girl wanted to be a Disney princess. We long to wear long, flowy dresses and be

whisked away by an oh-so-handsome prince. Have you ever wondered which Disney prince would suit

you best? Well today you can find out!!

I saw this quiz and knew I had to take it. It says “Which Disney Prince is Your True Love?” How could

I NOT click on that?! So I took the short little quiz. It asks things like “what would your royal colors

be?” and “which home would you live happily ever after in?”. Super easy questions! Well, I went

through the whole quiz and my prince charming was… drum roll please… Prince Eric from The Little

Mermaid! Hooray! He is soooo dreamy, I have to admit. Here is why they say Prince Eric is the hunk

for me: “He is romantic, brave, and chivalrous. But best of all, he is not afraid of anyone who isprince-eric-1

confident and strong-spirited.” Can’t argue with that!

So, if you are ever bored, or even just curious, check out THIS WEBSITE to see who your prince

charming would be!

So, who is YOUR happily ever after? Comment below!

It’s that time of the year again! Time to celebrate the best three months of the year. What’s better to do just that than a summer kick-off party? Not just any party, but one that people will remember! This is where you get to show your creative side and can come up with an awesome theme for you and your guests! Here are a few of my favorite ideas:

  • Obviously if you have a pool, Chelsea Crockett - Glow Sticksthat gives you plenty enough to entertain your guests with! But instead of just your average pool party, buy a ton of glow sticks and spread them throughout your pool! It will be super cool and unique. Also, have your guests wear glow sticks and bright colors. There are many other things to make your party “glow,” just think outside the box!
  • One of the first things I think of when I hear the word summer is the smell of a delicious backyard barbeque. Hosting a backyard BBQ is perfect for a small get together. If you have a mom or dad that’s good on the grill, ask them to be the cook for the night! Your friends will have a blast :)!
  • In honor of the warm weather and hot sun, throw a beach/luau themed party! Everyone can come dressed with leis, swimsuits, and other fun accessories! Start a bonfire, put on some music, and sit back and relax. Your guests will love the simple theme that reminds them of being on the beach! What’s more summer than that?

Send me pictures of your summer festivities and let me know of any other fun ideas you come up with in the comment section below!  -Chelsea

Big kids can have a blast in the spring and summer, too! Little kids can’t have all the fun! Here are some ways big kids can rock the warm months.

Use an inflatable boat as kiddie pool. That’s right, an inflatable boat! It is the perfect size for a teenager to sit it, and it is small enough that the water will stay warm and heat up really quick. When you are sunbathing on the lawn or by the pool, you can grab a book and hop in your personal pool.

chelsea crockett twoster

Inflatable twister. I seriously love this idea. Twister is already a blast, but when you blow it up and make it adult-sized, that makes it even better! This game is great for any teen party, and EVERYONE will want to join in! Twist away!

I am so excited to try these awesome ideas! Are you?Inflatable outdoor movie screen. This is a great idea for any summer or spring evening. Grab a group of friends, a great movie, a projector, and this cool movie screen! You can have the ultimate movie night! I cannot wait!

Sometimes I get in a super crafty mood! I found this really cute idea that involves a Sharpie and a light bulb! Stick around to find out about this sweet DIY!

So the cool thing about this craft is that when you are finished, the design that you draw onto the light bulb will be projected onto the wall when you light it up! You can look up cool designs or just think of some on your own. You can even use different colored Sharpies if you want the bulb to look funky when it is not lit! In the picture featured, you can see an example of a cool design you can try. Once you are finished with your bulb, screw it into your favorite lamp, take the lamp shade off, turn out your lights, and enjoy the pattern that the bulb projects all around your room!

Try it out and comment below if you love it!

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!

Sweet Getting-To-Know-You Game

Are you ever at a party and its kinda awkward because you don’t really know the people there? I have a super sweet idea for a “getting to know you” game that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Why? It involves chocolate! I’m in! This game can be played in any situation that you need to break the ice.

Have each person take a handful of M&Ms and put them in a plastic cup so they don’t melt in their hands. For each color of M&M, you have to answer a specific question. Here are some examples:

–          Red- something that happened yesterday.

–          Orange- something you are good at.chelsea crockett

–          Yellow- something about your childhood.

–          Blue- something you cannot live without.

–          Brown- something you learned last week.

–          Green- something you like to watch/listen to.

This kind of activity not only makes things less awkward because you get to talking and learning about each other, it is also delicious! Try this out next time you have a gathering or a few friends over.

XOXO, Chels

     Some of you may have tried Chex’s “Muddy Buddies” snack, but have you ever tried making something similar at home?  “Puppy Chow” is just as good, if not better, and a perfect treat for birthday celebrations or pool parties.

     To start off, you’ll need this list of ingredients:

 Chelsea Crockett - Puppy Chow

  • 1 bag of milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 box of Chex rice cereal
  • ¾ of a bag of powdered sugar

 

 Now that you have got your ingredients, you’re ready to start the process.  Melt your bag of milk chocolate chips in the microwave for two minutes.  Make sure you put them in a microwavable bowl first.  Then in a large bowl, mix together the melted chocolate, 1 cup of peanut butter, and 1 stick of melted butter.  After they’re fully mixed together, pour this over the box of Chex rice cereal and stir until it coats the cereal.  To finish it off, sprinkle ¾‘s of a bag of powdered sugar until that coats it as well.  Once you’ve completed this, it’s time to chow on the “Puppy Chow”!
