Getting snuggled up in bed at the end of the day is one of my favorite things. Sometimes I can fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. Other times, it takes me an hour or so to even get tired! There are certain things I do that help me fall asleep on those nights. If you have trouble sleeping, try out some of these tips. They really work! 

  • Cut down on caffeine intake. Chelsea Crockett - Falling Asleep Meme If caffeine affects you in even the slightest way, then watch how much you drink of it!  If you love coffee, tea, etc., then monitor what time of the day you have it.
  • Hide your clock.  When I can’t sleep, I often get frustrated when I watch the time get later and later.  Turn your clock around or shut off your phone!  That way you won’t be tempted to sneak a peek at the clock.
  • Light a lavender candle.  Lavender is proven to be one of the most relaxing scents for your body.  Lighting a candle or spraying a lavender scent around your room before you go to bed is extremely calming!
  • Focus on your breathing.  Focusing on one thing can take your mind off the fact that you can’t fall asleep.  Focus on keeping slow and steady breaths!
  • Picture yourself in your favorite setting.  Whether that be at the beach or surrounded by your friends and family, focusing on your happy place will help calm any nerves or anxious thoughts you may be having.

 Hopefully these help you get a little more sleep to keep you energized during the busy weeks ahead. I know I need it!

Dressing up for Halloween never gets old.  Whether you’re 5 or 25, everyone finds a little bit of enjoyment in finding the perfect costume!  Although there’s nothing wrong with dressing up solo, getting your friends together to pull off an awesome group costume makes the night even more memorable!

  • If you need something super quick and simple, emoji t-shirts are the answer!  All you need to do is purchase plain yellow t-shirts from Walmart, Target, etc.  Pick your fave emoji and create the face on your shirt using whatever color felt material you need.  Simply cut out the shapes and hot glue each piece of felt onto your shirt!Chelsea Crockett - Emoji Costumes
  • If you have a big enough group, be the seven dwarves from Snow White!  All you need are different colored long-sleeved shirts (colors that the dwarves wear), beanies, felt (black, yellow, and white), laced boots, and high white socks.  For the white felt, cut letters and hot glue them to the shirt to spell out whoever you are, whether it be Happy or Sleepy!  With the black felt, make a belt with a square yellow buckle on the front.  After you do this, you’re set!
  • Basing costumes off you and your friend’s favorite movie is easy and such a fun idea!  There are so many movies to pull costume ideas from such as Disney movies, Mean Girls, etc.  Pick the easiest and best one to go off of and go from there!

How to Touch Up With What’s In Your Purse

After a long day of school, work, or running errands, it’s easy for our makeup to fade and look a little messy.  If you have something important to be at after a long day, a quick touch-up is just what you need!  So what do you do if you don’t have your makeup bag on you?  No problem!  Here’s your 101 guide to touching up your makeup with what’s in your purse.Chelsea Crockett- mascara under eye

Getting rid of excess oil built up throughout the day is the first thing you must do in order to touch up correctly.  Blotting paper works best for this, but you can use a tissue instead.  Pat the tissue throughout your T-zone until you feel your skin becoming dryer.  Next, remove mascara and/or eyeliner that has gotten under your eye.  It’s easy for mascara to rub off on your under eyes from constant blinking.  Use the tissue again to wipe this off.  If you’ve got concealer on you, then touch up under your eyes and any blemishes you wish to cover up.  If not, turn the attention elsewhere.  Throw on a bright colored lip gloss or lipstick to make your lips the focus on your face…not that pesky zit!

All of this can be done in less than 5 minutes and is a quick way to refresh your makeup…without your makeup bag!

XOXO,

Are you a morning person? If you are, I envy you. Most girls are running around in the morning like crazy people trying to get out the door because they slept past their alarms! If you are one of these ladies who is always running late, here is a quick, fabulous hair do for you to try.

 

The Messy Pony!

Ladies, everyone can rock the classic messy pony. Sometimes, a regular ponytail is just too basic and boring. Spruce it up! Here are the steps to getting that chic, super-fast updo.

1. Take the sections of hair that are at your temples and pull up the section like you were going to do the “half-up half-down” hair style. Spray this section with dry shampoo to absorb all of the access oils! Now that you have the top section of your hair, take the back part of the section and start teasing from the back to the front. Before you tease the small section, spray some hairspray at the root of the hair because this will help the hair to stay teased!

2. As you get closer to the front of your hair, tease the hair less so you don’t see as much of a rats nest. Leave out the front section of hair so that you can use it to cover the teased portion. Mist your hair with hairspray because this will give your hair texture!

3. Take the sections of hair behind your ears and bring them to the front. Now that you have both the top section of your hair and the sections behind your ears all pushed towards the front of your head, take the back section of hair that is left and create your first ponytail. Make it close to the middle of your head, not too high and not too low!

4. Flip the front and side sections back and pin your tease down with bobby pins however you want. If you want a high tease, make it happen! If you want less tease, that is totally fine too! Just pin your hair closer to your head if you don’t want as much tease. Pull your remaining hair back and add it to your first ponytail! If you want to add a little accent to the pony, you can add in your favorite headband.

 

Easy, right? Now go rock those messy ponies!

XOXO, Chels

Need some quick volume for your hair? Are you always short on time? Well here is a super quick, super easy way to get fast volume that is sure to add sass to any outfit. Want the deets? Scroll on!

Okay, so is it just me or do some of you have moms who walk around the house wearing ridiculous rollers in their hair? Or worse, do they drive you hair rollersplaces while wearing them? Have no fear, I am not going to make you wear rollers out in public, but I am going to suggest you wear them in the comfort of your home! The best way to get super volume in your hair is to take your damp but almost dry hair and put the top layer in giant Velcro rollers. Use metal roller clips to hold the rollers in your hair.  Once you have the hair in rollers, use a blow dryer to warm the hair in the curlers and blow dry them for about 5 minutes. After you have blow dried them, leave the curlers in for another 10 minutes to let the hair cool down. Spritz them with hair spray and then take the rollers out. You should have some loose, large curls/waves. Rock this easy, voluptuous hair style wherever you go to show super sass!

XOXO, Chels
