As girls, we should always have each other’s backs when it comes to boys, stupid arguments, etc. There are too many times where I see girls tearing each other down instead of building each other up. We have enough of that from society! I get so many questions and comments for advice on what is considered “breaking girl code.” It’s simple and you shouldn’t be hesitant to follow it!Chelsea Crockett - Girl Code

The whole concept of “girl code” is pretty basic. For starters, if something feels wrong that you’re doing behind someone’s back, then it most likely is! Going with your gut is totally underrated in my opinion. For instance, some girls think it’s not a bad idea to do as little as flirt with someone in a relationship. Listen closely: stay away from anyone in a relationship! DO NOT be the girl that messes up something great between two people. This comes with lots of drama and guilt!

I have a lot of girls asking for my advice on what to do when you and your friend like the same guy (or something along these lines!). The first thing to learn about girl code is respect. Have respect for your friend and realize you’re both in the same boat. In my opinion, you should both back away from the situation. If I’ve learned one thing throughout my life, NEVER let a boy come between you and your BFF!

To wrap this up, I’m going to share one of my favorite quotes: “You can tell who the strong women are. They are the ones you see building one another up, instead of tearing each other down!” Can I get an “Amen?”

Having a spa day at an actual spa can be extremely expensive. Of course the treatments and messages are fabulous, but can be super overpriced! A DIY spa day at home is just what the doctor ordered. Here’s what you need:

One of my favorite things to do with my mom and sister is getting manicures and pedicures. It’s fun to do every once in a while but can start to add up. By doing a few simple steps at home, you can get almost the same turnout! Start off by using a small paintbrush to apply a layer of Elmer’s glue around your nail. This way you won’t get polish on your skin, it’ll just peel right off! Also when painting on your polish, don’t only apply a clear coat after, but before too! This will give your polish a good base in order to last longer.

What’s a spa without a facial? Chelsea Crockett - Banana MaskThis is a great recipe that’s simple to make so all your friends can enjoy. As you all know… I LOVE bananas! This face mask calls for plain yogurt, honey, and a banana. Mix together a ¼ cup of plain yogurt, a couple tablespoons of honey, and a banana and apply it to your face for about 15 minutes. Rinse it off and enjoy your smooth skin :).

Do you and your friends ever have a relaxed day at home? If you do something along these lines, let me know so I can try it out myself!

Love, Chelsea

5 Lazy Girl Beauty Hacks

I’ll admit it… I can be extremely lazy! Especially in the summer when I like to lounge around and relax. If you don’t absolutely love doing your makeup, it can be exhausting putting it on day after day. These tips are for any of the above!

  1. Getting the perfect cat eye is a difficult task for anyone, but if you have an old credit/hotel card, the task becomes a little bit easier! Look to the right!Chelsea Crockett - Cat Eye Hack
  2. If you hate finding the perfect gloss shade but still want some shimmer, apply Vaseline on your lips! They’ll be shiny and moisturized at the same time.
  3. Some of you feel the need to redo your makeup if you sweat/rub it off throughout the day. Instead, apply a setting spray so your makeup will stay on 10x longer!
  4. After a long day, it’s hard to find motivation to get ready for bed. Keep a pack of makeup wipes on your nightstand/by your bed to substitute as your face wash for the night. (Don’t do this every night, though! Your face needs to be washed!)
  5. I think dry shampoo was made for lazy people, it’s a genius product! If you can’t find the time to wash your hair as much as you should (or you just don’t want to!), spray a little by your scalp and around your head. It’s perfect if your hair easily looks greasy or oily, as well.

I hope these help if you’re a little tiresome this summer :)!

I got the opportunity to represent the one and only Barbie™ at Beautycon LA! It was an amazing experience considering I got to do a meetup (sponsored by Barbie™) with Niki and Gabi and The Evolution of Fashion & Beauty panel presented by Barbie™ as well! I thought I’d give you a little inside on the company and my experience with them at the event!

First of all, the Barbie™ area/booth that was set up inside was so awesome! My team and I got to hang out, take pics, and explore all the Chelsea Crockett - Barbie Vlogthings Barbie™ had set up for the event-goers. They had a photo booth that took 360° shots which you could pose in with friends and tons of different Barbie™ dolls! How fun is that? They also had tons of cool products you could take home including all things Barbie™ from dolls (duh!) to cute hair ties!

Apart from the actual event, Barbie™ is a great company that not only promotes products but an amazing message as well. Their products may have a younger audience, but their slogan, “be who you wanna be,” can be applied to any age group. I was so excited to spread the message on my panel and everywhere else at Beautycon. Your style is YOUR style and should be displayed however you want it to be! Being yourself is the most important thing, so don’t be afraid to show it :).

Love, Chels

Body Shaming: Why it NEEDS to End

It doesn’t matter what kind of body type you have, EVERYONE seems to have an opinion.  “She’s too fat.”  “She’s too skinny.”  “Does she even eat?”  Comments like these and social media in particular have driven girls to hate their bodies and take extreme measures.  Too many spend hours looking in the mirror pointing out what they don’t like rather than what they do.  Sometimes you can be your own worst enemy.  Does anyone else see the problem with this?!Chelsea Crockett- love bible verse

It’s time we take a stand and love ourselves for us!  We all need to embrace our imperfections.  I’m not perfect, you’re not perfect; and that’s a beautiful thing!!  We were all made perfect in God’s eyes and exactly how He wanted us to look.  Isn’t that amazing?!  Next time you see something you don’t like about your body, say two things you love about yourself.  It’s time to take a stand and love our bodies!  Say NO to body shaming!

Love you all,

Chelsea

Camping season is almost in full swing! A night under the stars with good friends or family is just what all of us stressed out teens could use! But a night in the great outdoors surrounded by bugs and humid weather isn’t always a girl’s dream. If you fall in this category, I’m here to give you a few tips on how to get through it while still maintaining your beauty :).

  • Sometimes a weekend retreat to the woods is hard to fit in time to wash your hair daily. Dry shampoo is a necessity to pack along if your hair gets greasy or oily easily. I know I’m not the only one who hates feeling like their hair isn’t clean. Dry shampoo can fix that problem!
  • Since you’ll be spending your days in the sun, make sure you take along facial sunscreen. Sunburns aren’t too good for your skin, especially your face. My favorite sunblock products are by Clinique. Chelsea Crockett - Beauty Traveling KitThey offer tons of different SPF amounts so you can choose what’s best for you. Clinique is great for sensitive skin, so if you’re interested click here!
  • Lastly, pack a goodie bag with all your necessary beauty essentials, in case of emergency. Tools such as a nail file, deodorant, waterproof makeup, etc. should be considered, depending on what you want to bring along with you!

What necessities do you pack along with you on a weekend getaway to the woods? Let me know below!

XOXO – Chelsea

I’ve recently learned about a special project that is held locally where I live and after doing some research, I’ve found that it exists in other areas too!  It’s called the Cinderella Project. This is a program that collects dresses for under privileged girls for proms and special occasions.  Junior and senior girls are referred to the Cinderella Project by their high school counselors.  I thought I’d share with you a great organization that you can be a part of!

About five years ago, the Cinderella Project joined Seventeen Magazine through Donatemydress.org.  The website encourages girls to donate their prom dresses and special occasion dresses to girls that could really use them.  Local businesses and volunteers help to make this project a huge success. Chelsea Crockett - Cinderella Project Prom Dresses

The store is open to the special prom-goers to receive their gifted dress.  After they’ve made their selections, the store is open to the public and any girl can purchase a dress from $29-$39.  Our local boutique has had more than 1500 dresses in all sizes, shapes, and colors for girls to choose from.

Of course, a dress is awesome but the Cinderella Project doesn’t stop there.  The organization also gives custom alterations, hairdos, and borrowed jewelry for the evening! Every girl is sure to feel pampered and special for their big night out.  Be sure to google the Cinderella Project to see if you have one in your area.  If you do, let’s make a difference and donate some dresses!

XOXO, Chelsea

Are you thinking about chopping off 10 inches of your hair? Or maybe you just want to try something different. Switching up your look can be risky and sometimes not end up how you expected. If you can’t find the right hairstyle for you, you must be looking in the wrong magazines! Here’s some quick advice on which style will suit you best!

  • Shoulder length. For the girls who would rather be safe than sorry, this cut is for you. You can’t go wrong with a safe, shoulder length style that isn’t too short, but gives your hair enough change for people to stop and take notice!
  • Angled bob. If you want to take more of an edgy style, try out a short (or medium-length), angled bob. If you want to add even more to this hairstyle, you can get subtle, side bangs too! Just a few snips and clips and you’ll have your gorgeous, desired look!Chelsea Crockett - Emma Watson
  • Lots of layers. Layers aren’t just for those with long hair. Cutting your hair into a short, below-the-ear bob and adding lots of layers is edgy and stylish, yet cute and flirty! If you want, you can add some highlights to mix it up even more.
  • Pixie cut. If you’re all for change and really like to mix it up, why not go all out and get a pixie cut? If it suits your personality, why not? If you have an oval or heart shaped face, I would recommend this style. Rihanna, Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, and even Miley Cyrus have rocked it!

Which style do you like best? Do you prefer edgy and risky or cute and flirty? Gimme your thoughts below!

P.E. is us girls’ most dreaded class: getting sweaty, rushing to get dressed, and running to your next class. I’d rather not! Whether you have a P.E. teacher that treats class like boot camp or only have it for one semester, you’ll need some tips for refreshing after. Here are a few tricks I’ve learned throughout my high school years, maybe they’ll help you, too!

If you have first hour P.E., you know the real struggle. First off, you can keep a few products in your backpack or gym locker for quick use. A trick I learned is, after you get all sweaty during class, using a baby wipe or makeup remover wipe and cleaning off your face with it (avoid taking off your eye makeup!). Then, reapply with a quick powder foundation if you have the time! Wiping off your face will remove any sweat or bacteria that’s left behind after class, which will help avoid acne from forming!

Chelsea Crockett - Tribal HeadbandNext, consider keeping some deodorant and/or perfume in your locker. This will make you feel and smell like you never even went to class! Also, carry a couple cute headbands with you. If your P.E. likes to mess up your hair, you can throw it in a messy bun or braid and rock a headband like the one on the left! These are super in right now and can be found at tons of stores like Forever 21 or Earthbound.

I hope these tips help you out after your gym class! Good luck!

Have you ever seen someone with gorgeous fake eyelashes and wondered if you could pull off those luscious lashes, too? Whether you worry about looking unnatural or hurting your real lashes, there are several pros to fake lashes… but with pros come cons and I’m here to help you decipher the two!   So, here are my thoughts on the great debate: real vs. fake?

CONS

  • Infections. Not that these are very commonChelsea Crockett - Fake Eyelashes or unavoidable, but they can occur! As long as you use your fake lashes and yours only, then the risk of infection goes way down. Sharing isn’t always good :)! Be extra careful you don’t accidentally get yours switched up with your friends. (Make sure you’re not allergic, too!  Yikes!)
  • You have to be very careful when putting on your false lashes. If you’re wearing long-lasting ones, you have to be sure not to drip the glue onto your real lashes. You don’t want to accidentally pull off your real ones when taking off your fake ones! Ouch!
  • The cost is yet another con. Although a set of fake lashes aren’t super pricey, they’re still more than mascara. With mascara, you have several days’ uses for long lashes instead of continually paying the price for false ones.

PROS

  • The most obvious pro is making your lashes look lusher, fuller, and longer than they actually are. If you’re one that has thin, short eyelashes, these might be for you!
  • Another fun positive is being able to dress up your look. Having bolder eyes than you normally do can make your makeup look more formal, and can even brighten up your whole look!
  • False lashes come in a huge variety of sizes, shapes, prices, etc. You can get individual lashes that are more natural looking or go full out and get a thick strip to make your eyes pop!

I prefer real lashes for the more natural look and quick application, but I’ll let you decide! So… real or fake?

Girls can all agree on one thing… shaving. It’s a pain and we don’t want to do it! Besides the time it takes every couple of days, potential cuts and burns are bad enough. There are not only ways to prevent these burns but ways to soothe them as well. Here are a few to help you out!Chelsea Crockett - Honey

  • One of the most common ways to soothe your burns is with cold compresses like an ice pack. This will tone down the inflammation and help cool off your burn.
  • Aloe Vera not only helps sunburns but razor burns as well! It might not be the first thing you think of when you step out of the shower, but it’s soothing and promotes healing!
  • Have you ever considered honey? Applying some honey to your burn actually helps bring down swelling and alleviate any pain. Who knew :)?
  • Old fashion remedies are often the best! So… try out the traditional baking soda trick. It’ll help bring down any redness on your skin. (Also, if you burn starts to itch, you can mix together some baking soda and water then apply it to your skin with a cotton ball or washcloth!)
  • Cucumber! Ever wonder why you put this on your eyes during a facial? It rejuvenates skin and helps moisturize it! Rub a few slices of cucumber on your burn and feel its magic.

Although these are a few of my favorite remedies, you probably have a few of your own! Share your secrets down below :)!

Knowing you have friends that you can trust and will be by your side no matter what is one of the best things in the world.  I know I’ve had trouble with finding a group of friends that I really fit in and get along with and can be myself around.  Luckily through church and school, I’ve found some amazing lifelong friends that build me up instead of tear me down.  Not only did it take them to step up to the plate, but also for me to be the best friend I could be to them.  Through that, I’ve learned some helpful tips to being a friend that’s there 24/7.Chelsea Crockett - Friends

  • Listen.  If your friends have had a bad day, take time to listen to them.  Whether it’s a break up with a boyfriend, a bad grade on a test, or a fight with their parents, let them know that they can talk to you about it.  Everyone needs somebody to lean on!
  • Build Them Up.  There’s nothing greater than having someone that believes in you and keeps you on a positive note.  A negative vibe is never good in a friendship.  That only leads to bickering and a not-so-great attitude.
  • Honesty and Trust.  We all know girls are known for gossiping and telling secrets.  Make sure your friend knows she can trust you with anything.  Be as loyal as you can and keep every promise you make.  Trust and honesty are the biggest things in any relationship.
  • Pray For Them.  Prayer is key.  God will never fail you or forsake you.  Telling a friend that you’re praying for them will lighten up their day.  Knowing God is with me and on my side always brings the biggest smile to my face.

Love, Chelsea

Girls, we’ve all been there. Between heartbreaks, friends, wanting to look good, and lady problems, we’ve been through it all.  Luckily, most of us can all relate to each other through one form or another.  We need to reunite!  Comment below if you can relate to these everyday struggles of being a girl.

  1. Walking into a room or store and completely forgetting why you were there in the first place.
  2. Noticing you didn’t cover those ugly pimples correctly and your eyeliner is crooked.
  3. Asking your friend if you bled through your pants. “Hey um can you just check for me.”
  4. Constantly complaining!!!
  5. Shaving your legs and then automatically feeling like you’re going to turn into a cactus the minute you get cold.
  6. Asking your dog for comfort.
  7. Feeling like your dog is your only friend.Chelsea Crockett- dog
  8. Having awkward conversations with your mom or dad.
  9. Asking your friends if you have lipstick on your teeth.
  10. Having that one embarrassing friend, but you still love them.
  11. Secretly picking a wedgie.
  12. JUST BEING A GIRL IN GENERAL.

XOXO,

Girls, we all agree our lives get tough sometimes.  Between bad hair days and smeared mascara, we have seen it all!  Here are a few “under the radar” beauty tips that most girls don’t know about!

If you are one of those people that prefer morning showers than night, I’m going to guess you have had that 20 second blow dry that doesn’t quite do the trick.  I suggest setting apart three minutes of your morning and dry the necessary parts of your hair: the front and top.  If you can settle down the fizziness around your scalp and the outline of your face, you will look 100x more finished then those “20 second blow dry” days!

Chelsea Crockett - Plump LipsPlump lips are the dream of any girl, and I know just the secret to getting them.  Before adding your favorite lip gloss, add a little dab of white eye shadow in the crease above your upper lip.  Sounds a little weird, I know, but this tip actually works!  Try it out for yourself!

Dry skin is another struggle we all go through.  There is nothing better than a warm shower, I totally understand, but don’t be afraid to take a cool shower every once and a while!  When we take hot showers, we instantly get out into the cold air of our bathroom which leads to dry skin.  Don’t forget to apply your favorite lotion afterwards :)!

Hope these tips help you lovely ladies out! – Chels

Everybody wants in on all things quicker and cheaper. Whether it’s easy beauty fixes or affordable DIY shorts, we want to hear it! I’ve discovered a few fashion hacks that work well and don’t empty your wallet!Chelsea Crockett - Closet Rack

  • Rub a pair of jeans on your shirt to get rid of deodorant stains. It’s definitely not the first thing you think of to get rid of stains! Make sure you use an older pair of jeans that won’t rub any color off on your shirt. It’s as simple as that!
  • We’ve all had that day where our moms ask us to get rid of any clothes we don’t wear anymore. Then we find ourselves frantically searching for any clothes to throw out! Here’s a tip: turn all of your hangers a certain way. Then, whenever you put something back in your closet, switch the hanger the opposite way. After a certain amount of time, you can see which clothes you’ve actually worn lately! Problem solved!
  • If you’ve ever sat on your bed untangling a necklace for half an hour, this tip’s for you! You’ll need to buy a box of tiny zip-lock bags and something to keep your jewelry in (jewelry box, sectioned container, etc.) Then, take each piece of jewelry and place them in a separate bag. You can organize the bags in several different ways such as by necklaces, bracelets, and earrings or by how casual to how dressy each piece is… however you think it will be easiest to keep organized!

Some people are naturally born with beautiful, thick, luscious hair… others aren’t as lucky. Although thin hair is at times both a blessing and a curse, making it look thicker than it actually is, is tougher than it looks. I’ve learned a few tricks and tips that’ll help you thicken your hair without hundreds of pricey products or remedies!

Chelsea Crockett - LayersFirst things first, make sure you’re using the right shampoos and conditioners. Avoid conditioners that say “hydrating” or similar things that will lead to actually flattening your hair instead of helping it. Volumizing products can really make a difference when it comes to expanding the look of your locks.

Apart from products, next time you’re at your hair salon ask your hairdresser to put in layers like the picture on the left. Sometimes adding variety to your hair gives off a lusher look than before. Also, if you’re struggling with your thin look in the mornings, try teasing your hair just enough to add a little height to it. It’s not hard and only takes a few seconds!

Another tip to try out is blow drying your hair upside down and avoiding brushing it. Keeping your hair as high as possible without flattening it down is the way to go with thin hair. Also, when it comes to styling your hair, try curling instead of straightening. Like I said before, volume is always the way to go!

Let me know any secrets you have for helping thin hair below!

Love, Chelsea
