New Year’s Eve is hands down the most fun night of the year!  Whether you party it up with your friends or kick it with your family, it’s always fun to ring in the new year.  Despite the festivities, you’ll need a fashionable outfit to kick off 2017!  Here are some things you need to know about the hottest NYE trends!

  • Go gold.  Gold and silver are two colors that come to mind when I think of NYE.  This year, gold is the color to rock! Chelsea Crockett - Velvet Shirt
  • Velvet.  Velvet is one of the cutest (and comfiest) trends this year.  Velvet shirts, velvet dresses, velvet jackets, velvet everything!  The picture on the right is both stylish and casual for the night.  You can dress it up or dress it down!
  • Glitter strobing/highlight.  If you’ve never heard of glitter strobing, it’s fun to try out for New Year’s Eve!  If you look online, you can find out how to do it yourself.  Why not add a little extra bling to celebrate the night?
  • All black everything.  All black everything is a timeless look that anyone can pull off!  Once again, this is a look you can dress up or dress down according to what you have planned!
  • Metallic.  New Year’s Eve has no limitations when it comes to your outfit.  Rock a pair of metallic pants or a metallic jacket!

Which trend are you going to rock this year?  Let me know below!

2015: Trends to Be Expected

2014 was a year full of fun, stylish trends. Whether it was a crop set outfit with a pair of knee-high boots or edgy DIY shorts and converse, this year’s trends are sure to top even the cutest of 2014. So, what’s going to be hot (or not!) in the New Year? Here are a few predictions made by fashion magazines and icons across the planet!

Chelsea Crockett - Suede JacketAccording to Vogue, suede should be making a killer comeback! This material is different from most, with its warm, fuzzy cloth. It has a vintage look to it that’s classy and mature like the jacket on the left! Another look that is expected to pop up in the spring, is dark denim. Jean, jean, and more jean! Keep an eye out and you might just notice it in every fashion magazine :)!

Indy style was huge last year. Now the Bohemian style is making its mark! Colorful patterns and bright colors are great for the summer. Layering jewelry such as dangle necklaces and bracelets is another fashion statement brought from 2014 to ’15. So cute!

According to Glamour, one-shoulder shirts and dresses are coming back into the fashion world for spring and summer. Soon they’ll be in almost any store at the mall :)! Colors such as army green and yellow are both expected to be seen on the runways throughout the year.

So… pay attention to your fashion magazines and style blogs and you might just see these trends when you least expect it!

New Year’s Resolutions… Not So Much!

Most people every year think about setting New Year’s resolutions that they almost never keep!  You know what I’m talking about!  Maybe exercising more and eating healthier, reading the Bible every day to finish it by the end of the year, or possibly spending more time with family and friends that you don’t see that often, etc.  The lists go on and on!  (And I have to admit, it’s hard to stick to them!)  I recently read an article that inspired me to try something new. So… I thought I’d share to inspire you as well!Chelsea Crockett - Fruit of the Spirit

This year, instead of making my resolution list of things to “do,” I considered making it based on ways I should “be”!  I’m trying to be more forgiving, prayerful, kind, faithful, loving, joyful, and thankful.  I really want to be mindful of how I’m acting in every situation, good or bad.  I know I won’t always be successful because we all make mistakes but I want to “be” a better, more optimistic person.  You should join me and pass on this idea….maybe bit by bit we can change the world!

Love, Chels

It’s almost 2015 which means it’s time to think about what you want to leave behind in 2014.  Time to reflect and rethink things you like and dislike about your Chelsea Crockett - New Years Quotelife.  Time to make resolutions to change your life for the better!  Perhaps you need to switch up your eating and exercising habits.  Or maybe even make new friends?  Whatever you’re thinking, it’s time to set goals and objectives for the new year!

New Year’s resolutions don’t always mean setting them solely for ourselves. As teens, we’re becoming more independent from our families and relying on friends more often.  Do we need to spend more time with our friends or family to make them feel important?  What could we change in our lives to make those people feel special?

Probably the most popular resolution we should consider making would be to eat healthy and exercise!  Whether you’re thin or overweight, it’s important to get the necessary amount of activity to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  It’s recommended for the average high school student to get 60 minutes of physical activity per day (if you can even find 60!). Simply setting a goal of 30 minutes, five days a week would be a start!

Last but not least would be to look at our effort and ability in school.  If we struggle in a certain area, how about working to change that B to an A? Studying more, staying organized, getting more sleep… Whatever your resolution is, I would love to hear about it!  Let me know below and maybe I’ll join you!

Happy New Year! – Chels

Holiday Makeup: Ring in the New Year!

New Year’s Eve is one of my favorite nights. It’s a fresh start into a new year filled with many exciting things to come! Whether you’re going to a New Year’s bash or to a nice dinner with your crush, you’ll need glamorous makeup to start off 2015 the right way! Here are a few of my favorite makeup looks that you can try too!

Chelsea Crockett - Holiday MakeupIf you’re one to rock the bold makeup (colorful eye shadows, bright lips), then try pulling off a blue eye shadow. Try using a light blue, shimmer shadow and applying it to your lids. Then, so you don’t go overboard with the blue, apply a white shimmer to your crease. Finish your eyes off with eyeliner and mascara. A nude lip stick and clear gloss will seal your look (or even a red lipstick like Taylor did on the left!).

Like I said before, you have to be the right person to pull off a certain look. If you’ve seen Kylie Jenner’s matte plum lips, you know how gorgeous they look! If you want a darker lip color, try a dark purple. It’s a bold statement but super trendy! Make sure you go light on the eye shadow and blush. You don’t want too much color. Finish it off with a winged liner and a boosting mascara.

A little shimmer and glitter can never hurt on New Year’s Eve! Urban Decay has a product called Moondust in seven different shades. It’s the perfect way to make your eyes pop! (And it looks great with a sparkly dress!)

I hope you all have a happy new year! – Chels

Adopt an Attitude of Gratitude

Hey insiders!
I hope your day started off with many blessings!  I know our lives are filled with too many blessings to count.  Even when we are going through tough times, I try to think of everything I’m thankful for.  After all, if you can see, hear, feel, eat, sleep, drink, and breathe, then you already have seven things to thank God for.  So many people are suffering from illnesses or abuse of
many kinds.  Therefore, I try to find the good in all situations! Chelsea Crockett - Thankfulness
Sometimes I complain and focus on the negatives.  But if I take a step back, I realize there are too many things to be thankful for and that complaining isn’t a way to thank God at all.  Literally, the list is endless.  To start off  write down 20 things you are thankful for.  Throughout each week, continue to list off every blessing you find throughout the days.
An attitude of gratitude is what creates joy and peace.  Fault finding, complaining, and grumbling are not very appealing.  Don’t you want to surround yourself with thankfulness, peace, and joy?  Well, the good news is you can!  Thanksgiving, praise, and gratitude are so powerful.  Give it a try!  Spend some time focusing on everything good in your life.  You might be
surprised at what you will find!
XOXO, Chelsea

A New Year, A New You!

Hi Insiders!
               As all of you know, my favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11.  It states,
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares The Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  We serve a big God!  He wants to do new and big things in your lives and mine.

      Chelsea Crockett - Jeremiah 29 11With God on our side, anything is possible.  God can open doors and opportunities that you may think are impossible.  Start making room in your mind for what God may have in store for you.  You must conceive it in your heart and mind before you can receive it.  Pray for wisdom about decisions and then wait expectantly to hear from God.

               Keep your “spiritual eyes” focused on positive thoughts so your life can move in that direction.  Focus on the good things in life and continually give thanks. Start your day with faith, spend time with God, and then wait for his favor to help you rise above life’s challenges.  Remember today is the first day of the rest of your life…..A New Year, A New You!

                                                Blessings,
                                                      Chelsea
