Have you ever pinned your hair up  in the cutest hair style ever, just to have the bobby pins fall out 10 minutes later? I can tell you that bobby pins that slip and slide out of your hair are just plain annoying! Today I am going to give you a way to make sure that your bobby pins stay where they are supposed to. Introducing, sticky bobby pins!

 

1. Gather your supplies. You will need hair spray, a paper towel, and bobby pins!

2. Place your bobby pins on the paper towel, and spread them out. Next, spray the pins evenly with hairspray.

3. Grab the corners of your paper towel and shake it to distribute the hairspray. Let the pins dry before you use them.

4. Pin away! These handy dandy sticky bobby pins will stay put even in straight, slick hair!

 

You can use these pins to pin up  your favorite  updoo or to just keep your hair pinned out of your face! Enjoy!

Look out tall boots! Booties are all the rage this fall and winter.  Most booties are cut right at the ankle and can be dressed up or down for any occasion.  The tricky part is knowing how to style and wear them correctly.  Read up and figure out how to style your booties this season!Chelsea Crockett- ankle booties

There are three ways to rock booties: with a dress or skirt, tucked into tight skinnies or leggings, or cuffed above the ankle with just about any straight-leg or skinny pant. Since the boots don’t go very far up your leg, it’s important to wear tight jeans with them so that they don’t begin to bunch up at the ankle.  If your jeans are loser at the bottom, cuff them so that they sit right above the beginning of the boot.  This way, you won’t have to worry about your jeans coming out of the top of your booties!

Leather, suede, flat, or heeled, booties are the perfect essential for any wardrobe! Comment below how you rock these boots!

XOXO,

Squeaky Clean Nails!

Do you ever take you nail polish off and your nails are totally stained that color? It happens to me when I wear red polish, that pesky stuff just doesn’t want to come off! There is a simple way to make your nails look squeaky clean, and it will also make them turn white! Stay tuned:

Ingredients:

b8e13ae5bc2bc0c7edf5106d336fb7ce

-Baking sod

-Hydrogen peroxide

Mix a small amount of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide together into a paste. Get an old toothbrush and scrub the paste into your toenails/fingernails.  After you have scrubbed the paste into your nails, let them soak in it. Soak them for 5-10 minutes. After you have soaked them, make sure to rinse all of the mixture off with some warm water! This remedy comes in handy for those of us who constantly paint our nails and whose nails are always stained from all of the color we put on them. It is helpful in the winter months when we paint our nails red for Christmas because red is the color that stains the most! Keep this tip in mind for summer also so you can have clean white toenails when you wear sandals!

“Do you want to build a snowman”? If you are familiar with this phrase then you have seen the movie “Frozen”! I absolutely adore this movie, and I am even more obsessed with the hair and makeup that the characters wear in this movie! Queen Elsa has the most beautiful braid in her hair throughout the movie. I knew I just HAD to learn how to do this gorgeous hair style. Read on to learn how!

chelsea crockett elsa

This style requires a LOT of teasing! Before you start this hair style, loosely curl your hair so it has some body to it. Also, spray some dry shampoo throughout your tresses to give it texture. Tease all of your hair at the crown of your hair and even a little throughout the ends of your hair. Spray it lightly with hair spray. Take three large sections from the top of your head and start a French braid down the back. Once you get to about the nape of your neck, start to braid more to the side of your head so that it can hang over the front of your shoulder. Once you have finished the braid, tie it off with a clear elastic. Pull on the braid and stretch it to loosen it to make it look fuller and bigger. Also, pull some strands from the top of the braid and loosely curl them to make the style look whispy and romantic!

Go show off your new look! It is fit for a queen!

I have a pair of black suede wedges that I absolutely adore. The only problem with them? They are a half size too big! When I walk in them my feet slide out and I look like I am walking on a waterbed I am so unsteady! I was so upset when I realized that they were too big, so I did some research! Here is how to make shoes that are too big fit just right!

 

The first thing you need to do is fill the space where your foot should be. For me, the heal is where I struggle. My gosh darn feet won’t stay in my darn shoes! Fill the gap between your heel and the shoe with Dr. Scholl’s Rub Relief Strips, which come on a roll like Scotch tape but have a thick, cushiony feel. You can find these at any drug store! Another way is to wear cushions on the shoes where the balls of your feet should be. These will jack you up a bit chelsea crockettand keep your feet cozy for long wear! If you are wearing shoes that will be covered by pants, then just throw on an extra pair of socks…or two..:) Sometimes, if you are wearing a dark pair of tights, you can get away with wearing a dark pair of ankle socks under your tights.  A cheap way to make your shoes fit, shove a few cotton balls in the toes of your shoes!

 

Hopefully these tips help you slip into your favorite pair of too-big shoes!

XOXO, Chels

When your alarm goes off in the morning do you cringe inwardly? Does that buzzing make you want to rip your pillow in half? If this is you, then you are NOT a morning person. Do you wish you were? Here are some tips on how to become a morning person.

  1. Pack on the protein: In every health class you have ever taken, it has been drilled into your skull that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That is because it is true! Eating a 77c53d7bbca7416642a3ebd0de95813959844bc01ce963fb0d1159b7651b8169healthy breakfast packed with protein gives you lasting energy.
  2. Reward yourself: Rewarding yourself will give you the incentive to actually follow through and wake up early. Reward yourself with an extra 15 minutes of TV or another helping of your favorite snack.
  3. Keep things light: keep your blinds open so that in the morning, when the sun shines in, it wakes you up naturally. We all know how hard it is to sleep with light pouring into the room!
  4. Give yourself a pep talk: At night, before bed, tell yourself that you are going to wake up early in the morning. No “ifs” “ands” or “buts”. And no excuses!

It is said that the early bird gets the worm, so go out there and get your worm!

As you grow up, you start having to do big kid things, like going to job interviews. Sometimes interviews can be really nerve wracking! You don’t want to say or do something wrong, and you want to impress your interviewer so you get the job! Here are a few common mistakes that people make when they are in an interview.

  1. Not doing your research on the company. You want to learn all that you can about the company before you interview with them. You can impress them by showing them how much you know about the company which also shows them how much you want the job.chelsea crockett job interview
  2. Lacking humor, warmth, personality. You want to be upbeat and energetic with your interviewer, and you also want to let your personality shine through. Don’t be drab and shy in your interview, and make sure not to avoid eye contact or speak in hushed tones.
  3. “Winging” the interview. Don’t go into the interview blind! Prepare for the interview, both mentally and physically! Make sure you have a copy of your resume and any other items that you interviewer requests, and also make sure that you have the right mindset going into the interview!
  4. Not setting yourself apart from the other candidates. Don’t let the interviewer think that you are just like any other candidate, let them know that you are one in a million and that they would be wrong to let you go!

Knock em dead, ladies!

Did you know there is a method to the madness of applying perfume? If you are like me, you spray that stuff everywhere on your body and then some, just hoping that it will keep you smelling good through at least first period. There are actually certain places on your body that you are ideal for perfume application. I’ll just fill you in so you don’t have to hose yourself down with perfume every morning hoping that some of it lasts. 

5ec3f245-1ba2-48d2-9407-6e93c971128e

The first place to apply perfume is on the inside of your wrists. When you spray on the perfume, DON’T RUB YOUR WRISTS TOGETHER! That is a no no. It just rubs off all of the perfume! Gently dab your wrists together. The next places are behind your ear and at the base of your throat! After that comes the inside of your elbow and behind your knee. Behind your knee? Whaaaat? I kid you not, folks. Adding a dab of perfume behind you knee can keep you smelling positively radiant. If you are super active and sporty, you may need to re-apply after you are done being your sporty self. Perfume is a must-have in any girl’s accessory bag. You have to smell fabulous in order to be fabulous!

Keep these tips in mind as you are getting ready in the morning!

Ladies ladies ladies…No shave November may be underway, so razor bumps aren’t a huge issue at the moment. Although they are not top priority at the moment, it is always good to know how to avoid those obnoxious, annoying bumps for good. Here are some tips on how to prevent razor bumps!

 

-Don’t shave every day

Don’t shave so often. Let your hair grow out a bit before shaving it again. Give your bumps time to heal and use the razor every other day at the most.

Shave under the warm shower and rinse off with cold water

Warm water will soften your hairs and make your skin less prone to irritation. When you are done shaving, cold water will close up the pores, which prevents infection and irritation.

-Use a shaving cream

Chelsea crockett shaving cream

Shaving cream will moisturize your skin as well as soften your hairs, making them easier to shave. Bumps appear more easily when your skin is dry and prone to irritation. Also, moisturize after you shave because it will reduce redness and irritation and decrease the probability of you getting razor bumps.

 

-Always use new and sharp razors

Dull razors will irritate the skin around the hair follicle and cause ingrown hairs.  Old and rusty blades can also carry  tons of bacteria, which can be transferred to the skin during shaving. This will not help your existing razor bumps to heal! If you don’t have a new blade, always use alcohol to clean your razor.

Do any of you brush your hair in the morning and feel like you are losing entirely too much hair? I know the feeling. When you start shedding hair, it is obnoxious! I find my hair EVERYWHERE! My parents do too :P. What I didn’t know is that you can use coffee to stop your hair from shedding! You can use any caffeine product, actually, because caffeine blocks the hormone responsible for hair loss, dihydrotestosterone (try saying that 5 times fast!). Want fuller, thicker hair? Try a coffee rinse!

How to do a coffee rinse:

coffee

1.Brew your coffee and let it cool. How much you will need will depend on how long and thick your hair is.

2. Rinse your hair with water to get it wet and then squeeze the excess water out. Using a pitcher, pour the coffee over your hair while using a second bowl to catch the excess coffee. Pour the coffee that you have caught in your bowl over your hair, catch the extra again, and then pour it over your hair once more for a total of 3 rinses.

3. Let the coffee sit on your hair for a few minutes and then rinse it out. If you have lighter hair, then do not leave the coffee in as long because it can discolor your hair a bit!

4. Shampoo and condition as you usually would.

 

Try this awesome rinse and let me know how it works out for you!

XOXO, Chels

How To Tuck Non-Skinny Jeans into Boots

Have you ever had the cutest pair of jeans and wanted to wear them with boots, but you couldn’t because the jeans weren’t skinny jeans and wouldn’t fit into your boots? This problem can easily be solved! With this simple trick, you can take your favorite pair of bell-bottom or wide-legged pants and turn them into skinny jeans! All you will need is your favorite pair of jeans, a smashing pair of boots, and some high socks.

How to tuck them:

1. Pull on your favorite pair of jeans. The tighter around the thighs and knees the better!

2. Roll up the legs of your jeans into a nice cuff. the cuff should come up about 5 inches. After you have cuffed the jeans, pull the cuffs tight around your legs. There should be some extra material once you have pulled the cuffs tight, so you need to take the extra and fold it over the tightened cuffs. Make sure to hold all of this tight, because that is what is making your jeans into skinny jeans. 

cuffs 454434051_irhtr2uq_c2

3. Now that you have the cuffs pulled tight and the extra material folded over it and tightened, put on your high socks and pull them up over the folded cuffs to hold them in place. Now slip on your boots and make sure that your socks are not sticking out and that your jeans are not bunching. If neither of those things are happening, then you are totally good to go!

Now that you know how to transform any pair of jeans into skinny jeans, the possibilities are endless!
