Starbucks is almost every girl’s go-to happy place.  Whether you’re a coffee drinker or just like a good atmosphere to work on homework, most of us can find ourselves going to Starbucks on a regular basis!  If you’ve heard of the Starbucks secret menu, then you know their drinks can get even better than what’s offered on the actual menu.  Here are some new, fun additions you should know about!

  • Strawberry Acai Refresher with Coconut Milk. Chelsea Crockett - Starbucks Drink These are so yummy and they make for a great Instagram, too!  They taste kind of like a smoothie and are perfect for a warm day outside.  Starbucks even adds some strawberries to your drink!
  • Dragon Frappuccino.  Similar to the new Unicorn Frappuccino, this drink is said to be created through a mixture of a green tea Frappuccino, vanilla bean powder, and a berry swirl.  It looks and tastes great!
  • Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher with Soy Milk.  This is along the same lines as the first drink I mentioned, but it’s purple instead like the picture on the right.  It’s refreshing and delicious!
  • Butter Beer Frappuccino.  If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’re probably thinking, “WHAAAT!?”  This actually exists!  All you have to ask for is a Crème Frappuccino with three pumps of caramel syrup, three pumps of toffee nut syrup, and some caramel drizzle on top to finish it off.

Do you know any secret drinks I’m missing out on?  Let me know and I’ll try them out for myself!

Milk and honey are the perfect combination. Not only do they smell great together, but are smoothing, conditioning, cleansing, and can even clear up acne! It can be hard to come across an all-natural soap that isn’t filled with extra dyes or chemicals. Luckily, making your own is just as easy as grabbing some at the store. Check it out!Chelsea Crockett- soap mold

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 tablespoons of Organic Raw Honey
  • 1 pound of Goat’s Milk Soap Base
  • Silicone Mold

Start by cutting the block of goat’s milk soap base into small cubes. Place the cubes in a big, microwavable bowl, microwaving for 30 seconds at a time and stirring in between. Once the soap base is completely melted, add the 3 tablespoons of honey and mix again. Pour the final mixture into the silicone soap mold, some come in really cute shapes, and wait until the soap has hardened. There is no need to place it in the refrigerator. The soap will harden at room temperature and can take up to 2 hours. Use this soap for yourself or give it away as a nice, homemade gift. You’ll never want to buy soap again!

XOXO,

I go to California often; sometimes for work, sometimes for fun. I love Cali! On my last trip for BeautyCon LA, my friends and I decided to take a breakfast trip to Urth Caffe (you know, that organic restaurant all the celebs Instagram). I was very curious to try their blended green tea drink! I immediately fell in love and looked up how to make it on my own. I want all of you to try it too! Bring Urth Caffe to your kitchen!Chelsea Crockett- matcha green tea

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Blender
  • 1 tablespoon of 100% matcha green tea leaf powder
  • 1 cup of any type of milk (soy, skim, almond, etc.)
  • 2/3 cup of ice  
  • Sugar or Stevia (optional)

It’s pretty simple. Combine all the ingredients into a blender and enjoy! You can add a few drops of mint (my favorite) or vanilla flavoring, or a banana to change it up. If you want your drink more or less “shake-like” you can add as little or as much ice as you’d like. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

XOXO,

The world is a huge place full of beauty secrets just waiting for their big reveal.  Some of these beauty secrets, such as Moroccan Oil from Morocco for shiny and healthy hair, have taken the world by storm!  Many other countries have their own beauty secrets that you can try in your own home!  Check out how to get heathy and feel beautiful from around the globe!Chelsea Crockett- milk oats and honey

Australia:  Got dandruff?  No problem!  Adding a few drops of tea tree oil to your normal shampoo will get rid of the problem in no time!

Egypt:  For soft skin, bathe in milk and honey.  This one dates back all the way to the time of the pyramids!

Brazil:  If you didn’t already know this, oats are great for your skin!  In Brazil, they place oatmeal in a filter bag and place it over their faucet in the bathtub.  Once the hot water has filtered through the oats, you’ve got yourself a sunburn relief bath!

Costa Rica:  If you have large pores and would like to shrink them for a short-term effect, mix together orange juice and water and use a cotton ball to rub the mixture on your skin.  Let the juice sink in for a few minutes and then continue to wash your face as you normally would!  Your pores should be noticeably smaller.

Spain:  Remove dark under eye circles by placing a sliced potato on your eyes.  This will lighten the skin!

The world has got some pretty great ideas!  It’s time we take advantage of them!

XOXO,

Chelsea
