The Grammys is one of the biggest nights for awards, celebrities, and fashion! The dresses seen on the red carpet are drop dead gorgeous and can give all the viewers some insight on what’s hot in Hollywood! Here’s a little bit of what I picked up from this year’s show!Chelsea Crockett - Taylor Swift Grammys

  • All black everything! So many of the stars showed up rocking the solid, black look. Beyoncé, Miranda Lambert, and Jessie J were only a few of the several celebs looking simple, yet chic and classy dressed in black from head-to-toe. Who wouldn’t take fashion advice from Queen B?
  • If you’re blonde, following in Taylor Swift’s footsteps is not a bad idea! Her turquoise colored dress looked absolutely amazing with her skin tone and hair color. It’s not too hard of a color to pull off, and it’ll complement your fair skin and light hair!
  • Although Rihanna’s dress was a little outside of the box, I LOVED its salmon pink color! This color would honestly look great on anyone. Whether you have a darker skin tone and brown hair or light skin and blonde hair, this color is girly, cute, and will be sure to stick out at prom.
  • Most stars avoided the bling and shimmer this year and kept it pretty simple. Several of the celebrities on the red carpet wore solid colored dresses, some with small cutouts or lace patterns. Simple dresses are classy and can be fun to accessorize :).

Let me know whose look was your favorite in the comments below!

Rejection is a scary thing. We all fear it and let it control us. Maybe you applied to your dream college and received a follow-up letter saying you didn’t make it in. Or maybe you decided to tell your crush that you’ve liked him for months, but he’d rather be “just friends.” Sound familiar? Denial is discouraging, but it shouldn’t have to be. Here’s a little guide I put together for when you get faced with rejection.

  1. Express your disappointment. Keeping something bottled up will never have a good result. Let yourself cry, have alone time, or whatever you need to do to help yourself move on. Remember, it’s okay to cry!
  2. Talk to a friend or someone in your family. Venting is one of my favorite things to do to get something out of my system. Don’t feel like you’re overreacting or being annoying. If they’re a true friend, they’d be happy to sit and listen.Chelsea Crockett - Rejection
  3. If you fall down 7 times, stand back up 8. Don’t let your rejection control your future. Instead of dwelling on it, use it as a motivator to succeed the next time!
  4. Think of what makes you happy and do it. This might sound too simple and direct, but it’s effective. If I’m feeling down, listening to fun music and surrounding myself with good people changes my mood instantly.
  5. Trust God. I saved the best tip for last. Praying and asking God for help is always my go-to response for rejection. God has a plan that is so much bigger than we can understand. Eventually, everything will fall perfectly into place!

I found a quote on Pinterest that gave me a slightly new perspective: “You could be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, but there’s still going to be someone who hates peaches.” 🙂

Love, Chelsea

When seasons change, so do wardrobes… and when wardrobes change, you have to adjust what colors make your autumn looks pop! Along with cute accessories and a stylish pair of boots, you have to make sure your makeup works to complete your outfit. The perfect way to do that is with a good lipstick to top off your full appearance!

Because bright lipsticks are always a yes, whenever you have the excuse to wear one, DO! Since fall is the time to rock your oranges, don’t be afraid to. For a nice dinner or a Halloween party, break out the orange. If you can pull off the dark red lips, try them out as well! You can’t go wrong with a little bit of color :)!Chelsea Crockett - Orange Lipsticks

Although a pop of color is fun every once and a while, toning it down with neutral shades is gorgeous yet casual. My favorite look is topping a light pink lipstick with gloss. Apply your lipstick then grab a clear gloss that’ll add some shine to your lips! (Beauty secret: add some white eye shadow or concealer to the middle crease above your upper lip. Then apply your lipstick/gloss. It makes your lips look bigger and plumper!)

Tweet me your favorite shades to rock during the fall so I can try them out :)!

Don’t get me wrong, summer is the best time of the year, but some of us teens get into the routine of staying up late at night… or even into the early hours of the morning! It may not affect us when we’re out of school and sleeping in through lunch, but during the school year it hits us like a ton of bricks! If you’re one of those people stuck in the exhausting routine, here are a few tips on breaking the habit!

  • Try drinking a glass of Sleepy Time tea. For some people, this tea is a miracle worker! If you start drinking a cup an hour or so before you hit the hay, you’ll feel calm and will hopefully doze off right away.Chelsea Crockett - Sleepytime Tea
  • Put your phone far away from you or in a different room. This may be the last thing you want to do, but I promise it works! 90% of the time you’re up after midnight is because your phone has too many easy distractions.
  • Use lavender! Lavender’s scent is known for relaxing and relieving stress. Purchase a lavender scented candle and let it burn for a while before you go to bed. Let it fill your room while it releases your stress, too!
  • Simply relax! Oftentimes you may find yourself getting frustrated and giving up on falling asleep early. DON’T! If you lay in bed and focus your mind on other things, it’ll help make you sleepy and you’ll eventually doze off.

So next time you’re having trouble catching some ZZZ’s, try out a couple of these steps and you’ll hopefully make it through the day without sleeping through class :)!

School can be such a drag. Between juggling homework, practices, and a job, life can get pretty tough and oftentimes extremely tiring. Staying motivated becomes harder and harder and procrastination usually starts to set in! For those of you who find yourself slacking and out of energy, here is a little guide I put together to help you out :)!

First things first, make sure you have the basics down. Get enough sleep (8 hours), eat healthy, exercise… These are all things that will give you a little more energy to get through the day. Apart from the simple things, be sure to reward yourself.Chelsea Crockett - Rewarding Yourself Working and getting things done is 10x harder if you don’t have anything to look forward to. Goal-setting is a perfect way to organize your tasks. If you complete a goal, reward yourself! Whether it’s with a piece of chocolate or a night out with your friends, it’ll help push you to checking off your goal!

The next step is probably the most important. As teenagers, we have SO many distractions… phones, friends, TV, etc. Get rid of them for a little! Trying to do everything at once isn’t possible. If you try, you’ll overwork yourself which leads to discouragement.

Have a good mindset and stay positive! – Chels

Have you ever gone to get your nails done and didn’t know which color to get on your toes and which color to pair with it on your fingers? I know we’ve all been through this struggle! I thought I’d help you out and provide you all with a little guide to pairing polishes. It’s actually quite simple!

Chelsea Crockett - Pairing PolishesI suggest starting off with picking one color to go on either your toes or your fingers. Don’t only look for colors that are easy to pair at first. Get one you really want and then figure out how to match with it! If you like different reds, try gold to go with it. Instead of painting your toes one color and your fingers the other, try even painting your ring finger gold and the rest red! It’s a fun look and not hard at all to pull off :).

One of my favorite polish pairs that works for summer, or even upcoming fall, is coral and purple! The colors are so, so cute together and create a fun look between the two. If you’re having trouble figuring out which colors look good together, try throwing in nude with a pink or orange. Nude or white are good substitutes for a hard-to-pair color. On the right, I found a chart on Pinterest that provides a little more help on which colors look best together!

Good luck! – Chelsea

            Hey girls!

            It’s half-way through November, crazy right?  This month has flown by and December is creeping up faster than we know it!  I know I’m not the only one counting down the days till Christmas and school break.  One of my favorite things about this holiday season are the Christmas parties, gift-exchanges, and family gatherings.  We all know it’s true, every girl has trouble finding the perfect party dress.  So, here’s my guide on finding the perfect holiday party dress!Chelsea Crockett - Holiday Dresses

  1. Lace is one of those everlasting trends that you can’t go wrong with.  Try finding a dress or shirt that features lacey sleeves or accents.
  2. You’ll always be sure to stand out if you rock a little sparkle.  If you go the shimmery route, make sure you keep it balanced.  Too much shine can be overbearing, so keep it at a good amount.
  3. Try sporting holiday colors.  Navy blues, dark reds, and neutrals give off a great feel of the season.
  4. Add some accessories!  Chunky necklaces are super in right now and go great with a lace dress.  Also, don’t be afraid to break out the heels and wedges to dress up your outfit.

                                                        Happy holidays!

Guide to Fall Colors

             Hey girls!

            Just as trends come and go, so do colors, and knowing when to break them out is tough.  For example, wearing white shoes, pants, or handbags after Labor Day and before Memorial Day is a fashion “don’t.”  So, what colors pop during autumn?  Keep reading to find out!

            You probably guessed it, but what color is better to sport during fall than orange?  Wearing an orange shirt and pairing it with neutral colored shoes and a cute handbag is a perfect casual outfit for a day at the mall.  Not a fan of orange?  Try out red or yellow.  These shades are similar to orange aChelsea Crockett - Fall Outfit - Fall Colorsnd still give off an autumn feel. 

            Another color that’s a fall favorite is chocolate brown.  The perfect brown accessory is a purse.  This matches almost any outfit you want to throw on.  It complements orange, red, and yellow perfectly, yet doesn’t take the focus away from your bright autumn shades.

            As I’ve stated before, plaid is back!  Although it’s a pattern, not a color, plaid has made a comeback and looks great as an oversized button-up.  Rock this look with leggings and boots or flats.   

            If you’re one who follows the Labor Day rule, then you’ll need a white substitute.  Cream, ivory, nude, or even a light, rosy pink will do the job.  These colors can fill in for your white accessories you put away for fall.

                                                Hope this helped! – Chels
