Sticking to Your Roots

All throughout life, you’ll encounter people and situations that test you. You try sticking true to who you are, but it seems like the world is against you every time.

Being a follower of Christ comes with a set of beliefs and morals that can make it harder for you to stay true to yourself, especially in the world we live in today. It can be hard to stick to your roots, such as your morals, values, and whatever else you hold dear and true to your heart.

Matthew 26:41 says, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 

When it seems like the world is going against you, start with prayer. Pray for help, pray for patience, pray for guidance. Prayer allows God to work in situations and allows us to see those prayers unfold before our eyes. When we pray and God answers, it’s one of the coolest things to see our prayers work wonders.

This verse refers to a willing spirit, but a weak body. We might know the difference between right and wrong, but putting that into action is the hard part. We are willing to, but in the end, we are not always able to.

Ephesians 6:13 says, “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand firm.”

When we put on the full armor of God, nothing can stand in our way. This is how God equips us to face whatever battles we may have. Do this every morning so you can conquer what the day ahead holds.

Put on the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit. These will equip you to stand your ground and remember the foundation you’re built on. They’ll help you stand firm in your faith and be able to defend whatever comes your way.

Joshua 23:6 says, “Be very strong; be careful to obey all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, without turning aside to the right or to the left.”

God knows that it can be hard to follow him, especially in the world we live in today. You have to make the effort to be strong, careful, and mindful. Know what the Bible says and, just as importantly, know how you can apply it to your life. It’s one thing to talk the talk, but as Christians, we have to be able to walk the walk, too!

Sticking to your roots can be as simple as changing your mindset. Do these things to be able to stand for what you believe in, not what anyone else wants you to! Be strong and careful to make note of this, and stick to your true identity in Christ!

Music festivals are the perfect opportunity to dress up in your most stylish festival gear and take lots of pics with your friends!  Although rocking a cute outfit and glamorous makeup is important, you’ll need a hairstyle to complete your look, as well.  Since festivals can often be hot and sweaty, here are 5 perfect hairstyles for the occasion!

  • Braided Top Buns. Chelsea Crockett - Braided Top Buns Like the picture on the right, a braided top buns look is super cute!  It’s a good hairstyle to keep hair out of your face which helps when you’re out in the sun!
  • Half-Up Loose Bun.  Contrary to top nots and tight high ponytails, loose, messy buns are totally in.  It’s okay if your hair is a little messy, it’s supposed to be with this look!
  • A Jeweled Headpiece.  When it comes to festivals, there’s pretty much no such thing as “going too all out.”  Buy a simple jeweled headpiece and try it out for yourself!   
  • Center Part Double Braids.  Ohhh, the double braids trend… It’s still alive and thriving!  This is a perfect option for hot weather and dancing to your favorite bands!
  • Glitter Roots.  This is a new trend that is SO cute and fun!  You can look up all the different ways you can do this on Pinterest or YouTube.  You can add lots of glitter or only a little, whatever you want!

Which hairstyle are you going to try out?  Let me know below and what festival you’re attending, as well!  Maybe I’ll see you there :).

Glitter is one of those things you either love or hate.  As long as it’s in moderation, I like adding a little shimmer to spice up my look.  If you’re a hardcore glitter lover, then I have a few hacks that will glitter-up almost any makeup look you’re trying out.  Here are five glitter hacks to satisfy your obsession!

  • Add a tiny amount of finely powdered glitter into your finishing spray.  Chelsea Crockett - Glitter LipsAfter your makeup is complete, apply this spray to make your whole face shine!
  • You can make your own body shimmer by mixing together body oil and loose shimmer pigment.  Then apply it wherever you want to make your body glow!
  • If you want to make your lips “glittered-out,” apply a coat of lip gloss to your lips.  Then, apply finely-sorted glitter to your lips with a Q-tip.  It will stick right to the gloss!
  • Use eyelash glue as a base for any glitter accents you want to add around your face.  If you’re going for that Coachella look, you can add glitter dots all around your eyes using this method!
  • Have you ever seen the glitter roots trend?  You can paint some glitter onto your part using a small eyeshadow brush.  Look at the pic above for example!  How unique is that? (Perfect for festival season!)

Which hack is your favorite?  Let me know in the comment section below!

Thick, luscious locks are something every girl desires.  When it comes to hair, you can pretty much determine its color, style, etc., but one thing you can’t change is how thick or thin it is!  Although you can’t actually “change” it, there are certain things you can do to make it appear thick and beautiful! 

  • Switch your part to the opposite side.  Chelsea Crockett - Pancake BraidShifting your part can give the hair around your roots a little lift.  Since its not used to it, your hair will look thicker at the top!
  • Condition your hair before you shampoo it.  This is said to give your hair a more textured look.  Try it out!
  • “Pancake” your braid.  Pancaking your braid is a new technique that makes your braid look fuller like the picture on the right.  You basically tug and pull on your hair to loosen your braid after you’ve finished. 
  • Use mousse.  Mousse isn’t only a guy’s products ladies!  It works beautifully when trying to give your hair a little extra lift and texture.
  • Use dry shampoo even when your hair is clean.  As I’ve said before, texture can completely change the appearance of your hair.  Dry shampoo will give your roots an extra lift!

What tips would you add to the list?  Let me know and I’ll try them myself!
