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

I recently saw this tutorial on Pinterest and thought that this so cute and creative! What is really unique about this DIY is that it is totally customizable! What do I mean? You can put whatever quote, verse, or lyric you want on it! On my shirt, I used the quote “When you feel like you’re drowning in life, don’t worry, our lifeguard walks on water.”

 What you will need:

–          Elmer’s Blue Gel glue (It HAS to be the blue kind, or it will not work!)

Chelsea Crockett watermark tee

–          Fabric dye

–          White cotton tee

1. Wet your tee with cool water and place a board between the layers of the shirt, like the lid of a tub.

2. Start drawing! Take the glue and write your favorite verse or quote across the front of the shirt. Pinterest is a great place to find quotes, too! Let the glue dry completely. This may take a few hours!

4. Prepare your tub of dye. Use cool water to make it, and remember that the color that comes out of the tub of dye will be a couple shades darker than your finished shirt! When you get the color you want, lay your tee out flat to dry.

5. When your tee is completely dry, soak it in cool, soapy about 15 minutes. This washes out the extra glue. Toss it in the washer and dry as you would normally!

 

I have found that these tees make great gifts to friends! Do you have a song that you and a friend call “your song”? Then slap the lyrics on one of these tee’s and give it to them for Christmas! They will love it, and it will mean so much to them that you made it!

XOXO, Chels

5 Unusual Date Ideas

“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

                           Hello Insiders!
            With snow in the forecast, we all anxiously await a snow day from school.  So when the first snow falls, grab some warm clothes, hot chocolate, and good friends to head outside with.  An unexpected snow day can be the perfect way to explore your creativity!Chelsea Crockett - Snowball Fight
Anyone can make the average snowman but can you think outside of the box?  How about a snow animal or a snow fort?
            Be sure to grab a sled and find the biggest hill in the neighborhood!  Even the lid of a trash can makes a great sled.  Everybody’s always up for a snowball fight, right?  It’s fun to build forts and pick teams.  Girls against boys is always the best!Wink
            Last but not least, if we get some snow, it’s always cozy to build a fire and roast s’mores to end the day.  Nothing says YUM like a s’more!  Let’s hope for some snow days real soon. Maybe even have a white Christmas!

Hey Insiders!

            So, I’ve been thinking about things I enjoy doing in the fall.  One thing that is always fun is Fright Fest at Six Flags.  It’s thrills by day and chills by night. When the sun goes down, it transforms into a Halloween playground!  It goes from Friday through Sunday on certain dates in September and October.  You can check the Six Flags website for more info.    

            Costumes are allowedChelsea Crockett - Fright Fest for children 12 and under.  They even have some trick or treating going on.  However, for teens and older, once the sun sets, ghouls and goblins come out to haunt the streets!  It’s always fun being chased by a ghost!  You can experience your favorite roller coaster in the dark as well.  They offer zombie paintball, a haunted house (Even though those aren’t real, I still freak out!) and a gruesome maze. 

            So Insiders, if its thrills and chills you are looking for this fall, Six Flags offers a haunting adventure.  Grab some friends, brave the streets, and find some creepy characters at the park!  It’ll be lots of fun and you just might start a fall tradition with your friends!

                                                   Happy Haunting!

                                                          XOXO, Chels

            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!

Summer Journal

            Hey girls!  With summer here, most of us will be traveling and doing some pretty exciting things.  I know I’m not the only one taking a ton of pictures and creating a lot of memories with my friends and family.

            To document these, I suggest keeping a summer journal!  If you travel a lot, writing down the places you go and the people you meet is a great keepsake and fun to look back at.  Any other exciting or memorable events you go to can be put in your journal as well.  You can print out your pictures, or develop them, and add them into your journal entry, too!Chelsea Crockett - Journal

            Another fun thing about keeping a journal is that you can design and decorate it exactly how you want to!  Whether it’s simple and plain or overwhelmed by stickers and glitter, you can decorate it whatever way suits you.  If you have a Polaroid camera, taking pictures on that and quickly adding them in your entry give it a vintage look and is an easier way to develop your pics!

            Usually journals are not very expensive and can be found at a nearby store like Target or Hobby Lobby.  Tweet or Instagram a picture of your Summer Journal and I’ll try and take a look at it! Enjoy!
