How to Smell Great All the Time

When I smell good I feel good. I don’t know what it is, but when I feel like I smell fresh, I feel so much more confident. Wouldn’t you agree?…

When I smell good I feel good. I don’t know what it is, but when I feel like I smell fresh, I feel so much more confident. Wouldn’t you agree? There are actually super simple ways to smell great all the time to help put a little pep in your step. We all have that friend who always smells so so good. No matter what time of day or what she’s been doing, whether after the gym or a long day at school, she always smells great. Want to be that girl? Read on.

  1. Watch what you eat: This may sound silly, but it is a big deal. If you eat a diet full of onions, garlic, and spices it can actually come out through your pores and make you smell not-so-great! Avoid these foods 48 hours before a date to stay smelling fresh.
  2. Know the right spots: Apply perfume to all of your “hotspots” like your wrists, behind your ears, your collarbone, inside your elbows, behind your knees, your ankles, and the small of your back. These places or the warmest on your body and activate the scent! But, be sure not to rub your wrists together, because this rubs the scent off much sooner!nd.1361
  3. Team up: Choose scents that have matching body lotions and body washes. This layers the scent and keeps it lasting wayyyy longer.
  4. Keep it close: Keep a small, travel-size bottle of your perfume with you in your purse to reapply when necessary. Also, use scent pouches in your clothes drawers to keep your clothes smelling fresh. Fresh clothes help you smell fresh.

See? Smelling great all the day long isn’t a big task! It is so easy, and makes you feel fresh and confident!

Have you ever purchased a makeup, body, or hair product that you loved, but seemed to run out too fast? I know I have! Some makeup products come in tubes so tiny it’s hard to believe they exist! My love for makeup can get very expensive, so I try to get the most out of each product. By using these simple tips in your everyday routine, you’ll find yourself making fewer trips to the beauty department!Chelsea Crockett- beauty hacks

  • If you use a mineral powder, like Bare Minerals, use a penny to open the bottom to get any leftover powder. This could give you a few more days of use!
  • Once your mascara is done for, clean the mascara brush and use it as an eyebrow comber!
  • To make bronzer or blush a little darker, apply it to freshly moisturized skin. This will save you from putting 2-3 coats on.
  • If your favorite lipstick is almost out, use a Q-Tip to apply every last amount.
  • You can fix a broken compact by adding a few drops of rubbing alcohol to the powder and patting it down.
  • If you don’t like the conditioner you’ve been using for your hair, don’t throw it away! Use it as shaving cream for smooth legs!
  • When I’m about to leave the house I usually just spray perfume all over my clothes and head out. Perfume can get buried in the fabric of your clothes, wasting those 5 pumps of perfume you sprayed. Instead, try placing perfume behind your ears, at the base of your throat, and/or behind the knees!
  • Prolong your razor by soaking it in baby oil after each use! This will keep soap and other minerals from dulling the blade!

Hope these beauty hacks come in handy!

Each morning we shower, apply lotions and hair products, put on our makeup, and spritz on some perfume before running out the door.  We do all of this without evening thinking about it!  So where do these products even come from?  Are they safe for us?  I broke down a few of my favorites to see what was really in them.  Keep on reading to find out some surprising facts!

  • When a perfume bottle describes its scent as floral or fruity, it’s most likely synthetic. All it takes to create a bottle of sweet smelling perfume is perfume oil, alcohol, and water. If the scent is too strong, coconut oil is sometimes added to the mixture to make it less potent.
  • Aloe is generally about as natural as it gets! It’s easy to make your own and has far less ingredients than bottles bought in stores. Dye and preservatives are added to aloe vera gel in order to give it its green color and stay fresh longer.
  • Lipstick is actually a scary product to be using around your mouth. Along with wax and lip dye, many brands, even high-end ones, tested positive for lead. Check out the list of ingredients before purchasing!Chelsea Crockett- lipstick
  • Self-tanners are a great way to get tan without hitting the tanning bed. Self-tanners contain DHA, the ingredient used to darken your skin. This used to be a concern for dermatologists, but it is now accepted and approved by many! Hey, it’s safer than a cancer-causing bed!

It’s crazy how something so “natural” can have so many added ingredients!  Always read up on your products!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Hello darlings!

            I’ve blogged about almost everything from makeup to hair products to nail polishes.  But one thing I haven’t really talked about is perfume!  Many magazines, including two of my favorites, Teen Vogue and Seventeen, have featured some popular perfumes that are perfect for adding on to an upcoming Christmas wish listWink!Chelsea Crockett - Perfumes

  • Viva La Juicy.  This perfume is made by Juicy Couture and has an amazing fruity scent to it.  You also don’t have to worry about the strong scent fading off right away.
  • Our Moment by One Direction.  If you love One Direction, then you’ll be sure to check out their new perfume.  This scent is super sweet and for sure a must-have.
  • Coach Poppy.  This perfume is a perfect mix of fruits and flowers.  It may be pricey but the buy is totally worth it!  Asking for it as a gift is a good idea for avoiding the price!
  • Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift.  I love this perfume.  This is a better perfume for fall and winter because it’s not a normal fruity, summery scent.  It also lasts for a while so you don’t have to keep reapplying it over and over again throughout the day.

I love when people tell me “Wow, your hair smells AMAZING!” It gives me a little boost of confidence, and who doesn’t love smelling awesome?! I know that when I smell good, I feel good. Here is a little secret on how to have the best smelling hair around, so when people hug you or somehow get a wiff of your luscious locks, you are smelling like a fresh field of daises. (Or whatever your preferred scent is 🙂 )no-51

Grab your hair brush that you use every day. Clean the hair out of it (my least favorite thing in the whole wide world).
Then, spray your hair brush with your favorite perfume. It can be whatever scent you choose! Do you have a signature scent? After you have sprayed your brush, run it through your hair. This will give your locks a light but lovely scent.

Like I said, when I smell good I feel good. Try this sneaky trick out before going on a date, out to dinner, or even before you go to school! You will be smelling good alllll day long.

XOXO, Chels

Hi Insiders!

Smelling good is definitely essential.  It feels great putting on a new perfume and walking out of the house.  Even trying new perfumes is fun!  Unfortunately over time, your sweet smell will wear off.  Lucky for you, I’ve got a few simple tips to make your perfume last longer.  Smell amazing all the time!

Rubbing in perfume on your wrists and neck are the most popular areas to spray your sweet aroma.  Although most people do this, don’t!  Instead, spray your perfume in the air and walk through it so it will stick to your clothes.  If you spray the perfume on your neck or wrists don’t rub it in.  This causes the scent to disappear more quickly.  Let it dry on the surface of your skin.  Even try spraying perfume or Febreze in your closet to make your clothes smell fresh all the time!  If your perfume comes with a lotion and gel combo, then be sure to use it!  That’s one of the simplest ways to smell amazing!Chelsea Crockett- perfume

Another great way to smell great is to use shoe spray.  Your shoes are one of the smelliest clothing items in your closest.  Have fresh smelling feet with scented odor dissolving spray!  One of the newest fragrant products is scented nail polish.  Check out your local department to have delectable smelling hands!

Smell lovely beauty gurus!Smile

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!

XOXO, Chels

Have you ever been in a rush and realized you ran out of the one beauty product you needed?  Well don’t worry!  Luckily, there are a handful of beauty hacks that you can use to substitute almost any product; and all of them can be found lying around your house!  Check it out!

  • Doing your nails can be a hassle, especially when you run of out nail polish remover.  Although it may smell strong, you can use your perfume to remove the polish.  Spray the perfume on a cotton ball and it’ll do the trick!
  • Have you ever run out of primer?  No problem!  Put a thin layer of aloe vera gel on your skin as a substitute.  The aloe will reduce pores and smooth over skin.  It will also help your makeup stay on longer.
  • Bronzer is a girl’s best friend, but only when you use it in the right amounts!  If you ever run out, try cocoa powder.  Use this in small amounts, for it may be darkerChelsea Crockett- cocoa powder bronzer than you’d like.
  • Are you feeling stinky, but realize you are out of deodorant?  Simply mix together baking soda with water and dab it on under your arms.  It’ll eliminate the smells!
  • Out of eyeliner?  Using an angled brush, lightly dab the brush onto your mascara brush and then use that as your eyeliner.

When life gives you problems, beauty problems that is, remember there’s always a way to fix it!

XOXO,

Chels
