Most of us girls are at that age, beginning high school, starting to drive, etc., and we can’t forget dating!  First dates are a big deal, and I know I’m not the only one that can’t control their nerves when asked out on a date!  Whether you’re secretly crushing on your classmate or making plans with your soon-to-be boyfriend, here are a few quick dos and don’ts for your date!Chelsea Crockett - Dating

  • DON’T be too serious.  Everyone wants to have a little fun!  Make sure you loosen up and don’t be nervous!  I’m sure he’s just as nervous as you are, so keep the conversation alive and going.
  • DON’T bring up past relationships!  If you’re thinking about an ex, maybe you’re not ready to move on just yet.
  • DO be yourself!  Don’t try to be someone you’re not.  If you’re not yourself from the start, then they won’t like you for the real YOU!
  • DO be open to creative date ideas!  Just because your guy’s not the basic “dinner and a movie” type doesn’t mean he can’t come up with a sweet, cute date for the two of you.  Usually those turn out to be the ones you remember!
  • DO dress appropriate for your date.  Just because others girls don’t, doesn’t mean you need to follow in their footsteps.  Wearing a nice outfit will show you have respect for yourself!

Next time you’re asked on a date, remember we’ve all been there!  Keep these tips in mind and you should be just fine!

Good luck! – Chelsea

Cramps, which are an awful thing, hit us girls every so often! They make us want to stay in bed and roll up into a ball for the day. Although they’re often unavoidable, there are several things you can do to soothe cramps and make it easier to get things done! Cramps shouldn’t stop you from accomplishing things throughout your day!

  • First off, make sure you’re eating and drinking right. Drink lots and lots of water and avoid carbonated and caffeinated beverages. When it comes to foods, eat meals that are non-processed and high in calcium and vitamins. Chicken, fish, brown rice, and green vegetables are perfect examples of good foods.
  • Second, be determined to get your daily workout in especially during your time of the month. Exercising releases endorphins in your body that act as a natural painkiller. It may be the last thing you want to do when you’re having cramps, but I promise it helps!
  • Third, try the obvious medications or heating pads. Taking a couple Advil or Ibuprofen usually does the trick! If not, apply a heating pad to your stomach or lower back, wherever you’re cramping.Chelsea Crockett - Yoga
  • Lastly, there are a few methods I’ve found online that are a little outside of the box! After waking up, immediately do yoga or different stretches. Simply getting your body moving is a start to crushing cramps. Also, eating foods with cinnamon can help digest your food and may soothe cramps as well. It’s worth a try!

Next time you find yourself curled into a ball refusing to get out of bed, try these easy tips!

Walking through a makeup store and seeing foundation for $30.00 isn’t appealing to most people.  I mean, why buy that foundation when you can buy a different foundation for $8.00 somewhere else?  The truth is that the price of the makeup doesn’t mean anything; it’s the formula you should be looking at.  Inexpensive makeup doesn’t always mean you’re getting a lesser quality of makeup, you’re just getting more bang for your buck!

When shopping for makeup, the more expensive something is doesn’t always mean it’s better; although you usually get what you paid for.  Most high-end makeup stores offer products that are safe for all skin types and are not made with foreign chemicals; but this doesn’t mean you can’t find these types of makeup at other department stores.  Brands like L’Oreal, Neutrogena, and NYX offer good quality makeup for a fair price.  Next time you buy makeup, check out the ingredients, not the price.  If it is free of irritants (alcohol, menthol, oils), then you are most likely getting a good product.  Never settle for makeup just because it is cheap!Chelsea Crockett- nyx makeup

Spending less doesn’t hurt your skin and spending more doesn’t always help it.  What matters is that you are using good makeup.  The benefits of good makeup will soon pay off for your skin.

Hair Removal: What Works Best?

Many girls don’t think about the best way to attack hair removal, they just want the hair gone and off their body! Nowadays, with the technology we have, there are hundreds of products that guarantee hair loss and smooth skin. But do these products compete with shaving or waxing? Here are a few pros and cons for all of the above!

  1. Shaving. Shaving is obviously the cheapest and easiest way to remove hair. You can do it yourself in almost no time at all! It’s pain free, although you may accidentally nick your leg. The only negative to shaving is the stubbles that form only a day or so after use (and the occasional cut to the knee). Shaving is most recommended for the legs and underarms. Never shave any parts of your face such as the upper lip, eyebrows, or chin.
  2. Waxing. Waxing can be done anywhere on your body. Along with that positive, waxing takes all the hair off and leaves your skin feeling extremely smooth. Chelsea Crockett - WaxingThe pain is usually pretty high if you don’t wax often, so going straight to waxing your legs isn’t the best idea. I suggest simply waxing your eyebrows or upper lips. Although it costs more than shaving, it definitely takes care of the job.
  3. Laser Hair Removal. This one can be tricky. Laser hair removal costs a lot more than waxing or shaving and works best on dark haired people. It is not as painful as waxing, but is still painful nonetheless. This definitely would not be my first suggestion especially since us teens are still so young! Although there are many cons, this type of removal takes care of the hair and keeps it away for longer amounts of time.

Let me know what you use below!

How to Tame Your Frizz in the Morning

Do you ever wake up and look in the mirror and think, “how in the world do I calm down this hair?” I’m not going to lie, I am definitely guilty of that! But no need to worry, I have found some tricks to help fizzle the frizz before it happens!

Many experts say to be careful when brushing your dry hair. Try to avoid it but if you must, try not to stretch it and cause breakage. Also, finger combing, or just combing in general, can reduce the breakage by a large amount!

The best way to handle your hair after washing is to towel dry and comb it. You can purchase an anti-frizz product to spray on it if you need to. If you don’t have an anti-frizzChelsea Crockett - Moroccan Oil product, you can water down a bit of hair conditioner and use your hands to apply it to only the tips of your hair. (Always look for protein in your conditioners. It helps to manage frizz and create shine.) Try to avoid straighteners, curling irons, and relaxers. They can make your hair brittle and lead to breakage which enhances frizz.  A couple of the best frizz-reducing products are Moroccan or Argon Oil.  To check it out, click here!

When buying products for your hair, look for ones that do not contain alcohol. Many salons carry these products and they are where I most recommend to shop. Avoid super markets and drugstores, they often carry products with alcohol because they have a longer shelf life. Another anti-frizz product that most don’t think of is children’s detangling spray. Spray a little on your hands and then gently smooth down your frizz. Good luck insiders!
