My first time going to prom, I had several questions and expectations about what prom would actually be like.  You may be thinking that prom is just like the movies, which in some ways it is… But in others, it’s just the opposite.  Here are 5 busted prom myths for the first-year prom goers!

  • You can’t go if you don’t have a date. Wrong!  Chelsea Crockett - PromYou can absolutely go solo!  Don’t let not having a date stop you from having a great night with your friends.  Make tons of memories whether you go with someone or not.
  • Prom is always expensive. That’s not always the case!  You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on your dress, shoes, etc.  If you shop smart, you can look like a million bucks at prom without spending much at all.
  • Prom night is going to be just like it is in the movies… Not exactly! Although prom night has a lot of potential, don’t stress if it’s not the absolute best night of your life.  That being said, it can also be everything you want it to be!
  • You absolutely HAVE to go to prom. Although I highly encourage it, you don’t have to go to prom!  If it’s not really your thing, don’t feel like it’s mandatory.
  • Winning prom queen is the most important thing about prom. Although prom king and queen are a pretty big deal, it’s not the only thing that happens at prom.  Don’t feel too bad if you’re not on the list of nominees!

Now that you know a little more of what to expect, make the most of your prom night!  Remember, you only do high school once!

Love, Chelsea

Prom Prep: DIY Ways to Break-in Your Heels

Prom season is right around the corner and it’s never too early to start prepping for it.  Not only is it a priority to look good on prom night, but to be comfortable, too!  I’d say the most painful part of the prom process is wearing heels for hours during pictures, dinner, dancing, etc.  I found a few DIY ways to break-in your heels that’ll make wearing them all night a piece of cake!

  • If your heels are too tight, stretch them out using ice!  Fill up two freezer bags with water and seal them tightly.  Place the bags in your heels then put them in the freezer until the water freezes.  Then, take out your heels and let the ice thaw until you can slip out the bags.  Your heels should be much looser and comfier!Chelsea Crockett - Prom Heels
  • Speaking of making your heels more comfortable, using heat to stretch out the material is your best bet!  Take a blow dryer and blast your shoes with hot air, then bend and twist your shoes while they’re still warm to loosen them up!
  • One of the worst parts about wearing new shoes is the possibility of lots of blisters… Yikes!  As weird as this might sound, try rubbing deodorant on the places on your foot where you might blister.  This will provide a small barrier to prevent any rubbing!
  • When you get a new pair of heels, the bottoms of them will most likely be slippery.  Take sandpaper and rub the bottom of your shoes with it.  It’ll give them a little grip and friction!

Which DIY are you going to try out?  I hope it helps! 🙂
