Decorating my room is something I love to do.  Since it’s my own space, I ultimately get to decide what hangs on the walls or goes on my dresser.  With fall in full swing, the decorations are as well!  Since DIYs are one of my favorite pastimes, adding a festive touch makes for the perfect DIY room décor!

  • During fall, you can never have too many pumpkins.  Chelsea Crockett - Pumpkin DecorSeveral stores sell mini pumpkins that are easy to decorate and store in your room!  Buy some paint, glitter, etc. to match your room and make your pumpkin into the perfect decoration.
  • Make your own pumpkin spice candle!  You might be thinking what?  You can do that?  There are tons of recipes online to create your own fall scented candle. You can burn it and fill your room with the sweet smell of pumpkin spice!
  • I’ve always loved decking out my room with twinkle lights to make it warm and cozy.  To get a little more festive, purchase orange or yellow-tinted twinkle lights to hang around your room.  Along with your other fall decorations, these will finish off the job and create the perfect autumn atmosphere!

Whether you’re adding décor to your dorm at school or bedroom at home, I hope you create the perfect festive touch for the season!

Love, Chelsea

New York Fashion Week Fall 2016 Trends

New York Fashion Week is the greatest week of the year!  Although I didn’t get to go, I still love looking at all the runway looks and trends.  This year, all of the designer’s showed off some of their most stylish collections ever!  Here’s a short recap of the week and how you can be up to date with this season’s hottest trends!Chelsea Crockett - NYFW Muted Orange Trend

  • Muted orange.  Obviously fall colors are always a huge “yes” during the season, but the orange shade above is a big one this fall!
  • Mismatch/patched jeans.  In a lot of the runway shows this year, designers featured jeans that had patches from other shades and materials of jeans.  It might sound odd, but they actually turned out super stylish and unique!
  • Formal Boho/festival wear.  The Boho style has been around for a while, but it’s usually more casual, festival wear.  This season, there’s more of an emphasize on formal Boho wear, such as flowy dresses, skirts, and blouses.
  • Sequins and ruffles.  You may be thinking… what?  I don’t mean huge ruffled dresses decked out in sparkly sequins.  What I do mean are simple, detailed looks with a little sparkle!

Which look or show was your favorite from NYFW?  Let me know below! 🙂

Sooner than later, the leaves will be changing and the temperatures will be dropping.  That being said, some fall wardrobe updating will need to be done!  There are lots of new trends to be aware of this upcoming season.  Different materials, patterns, and looks are going to make their statement in a month or two.  Keep reading to find out how you can be up-to-date!Chelsea Crockett - Long Line Vest

  1. Instead of puffy or fleece vests, try rocking a long-line vest like the one on the right!  They’re much more stylish and can be dressed up or dressed down!
  2. Although army jackets are super cute, try wearing a bomber jacket instead.  They have a much more retro feel to them and come in many different colors and patterns!  This is one of my favorite trends going into fall 2016.
  3. I have tons of dresses that I love to wear especially in autumn, but one trend that I’ve been seeing everywhere is suede dresses.  I love the material and the look it gives off!
  4. Instead of layered or chunky necklaces, don’t be afraid to be simple with chokers!  There are so many different kinds.  You can get a tan suede double stranded choker or a thick black stranded one, whatever you want!

Which fall trend will you be rocking this season?  Let me know below! 🙂

Easter: The Reason for the Season

It’s easy to get caught up in all the hype of the holidays.  Heaps and heaps of food, chocolate bunnies, family, and friends are all part of the Easter experience.  Big family dinners and parties are fun, but unfortunately, too many families celebrate Easter without thinking about the true reason for the season…Jesus!Chelsea Crockett- Easter

The Easter bunny may be the symbol of Easter, but it is not why we celebrate it.  We celebrate Easter to glorify the resurrection of Jesus!  Three days after Jesus died on the cross for our sins, he rose again to promise everyone everlasting life.  That’s pretty amazing, right?  Whether you’re attending an Easter party or having a big family brunch, do not forget about what Jesus did for us.  Thank Him for the amazing mercy he had for all of us!

“And this is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life.” – 1 John 2:25

I hope everyone has the happiest Easter ever!

Home Remedies for Killing Nasty Allergies

Spring fever is in full swing! With the flowers budding and the warm weather moving in, there’s also a negative side to the beautiful outdoors: allergies. You can’t stop them and they only seem to get worse throughout each month. Besides the obvious medicines and vitamins, there are things at home you can do to lessen your symptoms!

Hot showers are the one of the best ways to clear up your stuffy nose. Because of the steam, it hydrates your sinuses and eliminates dryness. If you don’t want to fully take a shower to get the steam effect, pour boiling water in a bowl, put your head over the top of it, and inhale. This works just as well! (If you want to go the extra mile, buy a humidifier and put it in your room while you sleep!)

Chelsea Crockett - Peppermint TeaPeppermint is an easy and enjoyable way to clear up your stuffy nose. If you’re a tea drinker, add some dry or chopped fresh peppermint to a cup of warm tea. The warmth of your tea will help your throat and the peppermint will work at opening your sinuses. Another bonus to add to your mint tea, is a little bit of honey. Legend says that, because bees transfer pollen to honey, eating or drinking a little bit every day can slowly make you immune to its effects! It’s worth a try!

If you’re a victim of nasty allergies, share your remedy secrets below!

Every color is important in a wardrobe, but the colors of the season are the real eye-catchers!  Each season has its own special colors that show up on the runway and end up in every store!  Here are the colors of the summer and how you can incorporate them in your wardrobe!Chelsea Crockett- sea form green bikini

It’s all about the ocean!  Called the “Aquamarine” trend on the runways, sea foam green and aqua blue are two of the brightest colors to hit stores this summer.  Try a fun sea foam green bikini or aqua blue maxi with gold accessories.  Also, ditch the tight dresses and opt for a flowy, princess-like dress.  Another one of my favorite color trends is classic navy blue.  Navy, denim blue isn’t just for your jeans anymore!  Try a navy blouse with dark shorts or maxi skirt for an all over classic look.  Surprisingly enough, navy can actually make you look tanner!  You can even try pairing it with nude or tan (another 2015 summer color).

With the Boho trend still on the rise, reddish brown has made a big comeback!  Try wearing it with an oversized tee, denim shorts, and leather booties.  It also looks great with a boho style dress or crochet top.  There are so many possibilities with these wonderful summer colors.  Comment below which one of these colors you’ll be rocking this summer!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Christmas Makeup Looks: Natural & Bold!

Christmas is finally here insiders! It’s time to break out the wrapping paper and sugar cookies. Besides the obvious holiday preparations, you’re going to need a stunning outfit and makeup look to complete it! So… I decided to share two looks with you: natural and bold.

  1. If you want to keep it nice and simple for the holidays, this natural look is for you! Some girls don’t wear makeup all the time, so if you want to try something new for the holidays, I suggest this look! If you have an amazing outfit, you might not want to overdo it with your makeup. Try using your normal foundation with a light pink blush. Then, apply a shimmer nude or light pink eye shadow (I suggest the shimmer nude more than the pink!). If you’re a girl that can’t get enough eye liner, try to avoid the cat eye for this look. A simple thin line will look more natural! Seal your look with a maximizing mascara and a nude, matteChelsea Crockett - Christmas Makeup lipstick.
  2. As for the makeup lovers out there (like me!), you might rather go for the bolder look. Instead of a light pink blush, use a cherry colored one! For your eyes, you can never go wrong with the smoky eye, which is definitely a statement look. The normal smoky eye colors (gray, black, white) might get boring after a while. Try incorporating holiday colors such as silver or gold! Finish off your look with a red lipstick :).

There ya go! You can pick and choose which one suits you best!

Merry Christmas! – Chelsea

Have you ever heard the saying “less is more?” Well… this also applies to fashion, too! Sometimes the cutest outfits, are the simplest. Since fall is the time to break out boots and sweaters, here are some quick, autumn outfits to throw on that are simple yet stylish.

Chelsea Crockett - Sweater CardiganAs a girl, I know you can never have too many sweaters! An oversized sweater is the comfiest thing to throw on with leggings without looking like you just rolled out of bed. With a chunky necklace, jeans, and riding boots, you can dress up your outfit; however, put on some combat boots and leggings and you’re set for a more casual outing.

Now I might sound like I’m a little obsessed with sweaters, but big sweater cardigans are perfect for a casual, fall look. A sweater like the one on the left is super trendy with a pair of boots and a scarf. (Tip: Try to find clothing that is warm colors such as reds, browns, yellows, etc. It gives your look 10x more of a fall feel than pastel or neon colors.)

Lastly, next time you’re at Forever 21 or even Target, pick up a couple plaid or denim button ups! The cutest way to rock these is with a pair of leggings and a top-knot or a high bun. For the denim button ups, dress them up with a chunky necklace or a scarf :)!

Let me see what simple and stylish outfits you put together for the fall! Or… let me know in the comment section below!

I recently shared an article with you about how to use apples for beauty remedies.  Now, I want to talk to you about one of my favorite apple desserts and how you can make them!  We love apples at our house and with fall just around the corner, I know that means fresh caramel apples will be in our kitchen!  What’s a bonfire without s’mores and caramel apples!?  Therefore, I thought it would be fun to share a caramel apple recipe with you!Chelsea Crockett - Caramel ApplesFirst you need to cook 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan over medium heat.  Be sure to swirl until golden brown.  Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup of cream, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.  Transfer to a bowl that is tall and good for dipping apples and let the ingredients cool slightly!  Insert a wooden stick into four apples and dip them into the caramel, one at a time.  Be sure to set them on parchment paper after dipping.  Then, let them harden by placing in the refrigerator if needed. You can also dip them in nuts, Oreos, M&M’s etc.! It’s quick, easy, and delicious!

There you have it….a perfect treat for bonfires, hayrides, Halloween parties, etc.  What better way to kick off fall then to treat yourself and your friends to some homemade caramel apples!  Yum!

Enjoy! – Chelsea

            Hey girls!

            It’s the holiday we’ve been waiting for all year and it’s finally here!  One of the best things about the Christmas season, are the fun parties and gift-exchanges!  And along with these fun festivities, you’ll be in need of a stylish outfit.Chelsea Crockett - Style for the Season

            Sporting a simple holiday dress is perfect for almost any occasion.  Maroon is a gorgeous color to wear for a dress and also gives off a holiday feel.  On the right, I paired a maroon lace dress from Target with a cream infinity scarf.  Some Chelsea Crockett - Sweatergold flats or cream boots will finish off the outfit.  For a more casual outing, try out a black blazer.  This can be paired with a red infinity scarf or a chunky necklace.  You can also wear a red peplum or some fun patterned pants to spice up your outfit.  Throw on some heels or boots to tie your get-up together. 

            In you want to go even more casual, over-sized cardigans are a huge trend right now!  I rocked this one with a pair of leggings, boots, and an infinity scarf.  You’ll be sure to catch the attention of all the guests at the party!
