I love music. Whether I’m driving, doing homework, or getting ready for school, it’s always blaring 24/7. I like all different types of music, but Christian is definitely one of my favorite genres. Over the years, I’ve discovered three bands or singers that I’m especially fond of and I wanted to share them with you :)!

  • Hillsong Young & Free – You may be more familiar with the group Hillsong United, but Hillsong Young & Free is a youth ministry that isn’t just a label, but a message and ministry as well! In a generation that needs it, their music reflects living a life with God and living according to His purpose. A lot of their music is upbeat and fun to listen to, but still tells an awesome message!Chelsea Crockett - Hillsong Young and Free
  • Jonathan David – Jonathan’s message revolves around one of freedom and wholeness in God. I love listening to his music when I’m doing homework or simply relaxing. I strongly suggest you take a listen!
  • All Sons & Daughters – This band is one of my faves! They’re a duo that preforms mainly acoustic and folk styled music, which I love! They have three full albums released and they’re all so good! If you like that type of chill, acoustic music, then I suggest you check them out.

Music is something that I continually put in my mind and body, so I always make sure it benefits me. What you listen to can help or hurt you, so listening to God’s Word is always my go-to :).

Love, Chels

Summer is the number one thing that can’t be complete without some good music. It sets the carefree, chill mood that all of us should be experiencing during our vacation! Everyone has their favorite artist or genre they like to jam to so here’s a little taste of mine :).

A new “on the rise” artist from the UK, George Ezra, has an album out that is absolutely perfect. It’s more laid-back music than dancing music but it’s nice for those relaxing summer nights! You’ve probably heard one of his songs “Budapest” on the radio which is his most popular song from the album Wanted On Voyage. Check it out :)!

If you’re a Pitch Perfect fan (which let’s be real who isn’t?), Chelsea Crockett - Pitch Perfect 2then what’s better to jam to than the Pitch Perfect 2 soundtrack! The movie was hilarious and the songs in it were just as good! Another album is the new Mumford & Sons album Wilder Mind. Of course you have to be into the folk sounding tunes of the tracks but I love them! Lastly, the new Zedd album will totally get you pumped-up for summer. It’s called True Colors and each song has just as much a catchy beat as the next!

What are you listening to while spending your days in the sun? Leave a comment below!

Yeah, it is an understatement to say that I am NOT a morning person. I would much rather sleep until noon that get up at 6 am every morning for school. But, since getting up early is something that we have to get used to as we grow up, I have found was to make it a little more bearable. My favorite way to get myself going in the morning is to listen to music! Once I get jamming my body knows it is time to get up and start the day. Here are some songs to start your morning off right:

  1. Sugar by Maroon 560363443
  2. Walking on Sunshine by Katrina & The Waves
  3. Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole (What a name!)
  4. Ready or Not by Bridgit Mendler
  5. Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham!
  6. This Will Be by Natalie Cole (Every time I hear this song I think of the movie The Parent Trap!)
  7. Daylight by Matt and Kim
  8. Any song by Lacrae, I love his music!

So, wake up on the right side of the bed and get your groove on!

XOXO, Chels

Outside of makeup and fashion, music is a big part of my life.  I listen to it on my way to school, while I work out, and basically any other time I can get my hands on a pair of headphones.  I’ve recently been into lots of different artists and genres, anywhere from Christian to Pop.  I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite tunes and beats!Chelsea Crockett - Playlist

I always love to listen to Christian music to get me through the day.  It’s encouraging, positive, and full of God’s message.  Lately, I’ve really been into a song called “Lead Me to the Cross” by Hillsong.  It’s such a pretty song and perfect to listen to start your day.

Not only do I listen to Christian music, but hip-hop as well!  Lecrae’s new album, “Church Clothes,” is a perfect mix between the two genres.  His songs are awesome and fun to listen to!

Of course, I can’t forget one of my favorite country singers.  Hunter Hayes’s album “Encore” is sooo good!  I can’t seem to get it off repeat.  I just recently went to his concert and it totally lived up to my expectations.  Besides his outstanding music, he’s such a cutie, too!

Just like any teenage girls, Taylor Swift is one of the many names I have on my playlist.  I’ve recently been loving her song “Dear John.”  It’s on her “Speak Now” CD which came out a couple of years ago.  Definitely take a listen!

I love music. I listen to it on the bus, when I am at home, and when I just need to relax and get away. Today I am going to fill you in on my current top 3 favorite songs. These are songs I shamelessly rock out to on a daily basis!

1. Come With Us (Feat. Can’t Stop Won’t Stop) By Lindsey Stirling:

I love this song because it is so unique. Why is it unique? It mixes rap with violin music. It is so cool! Lindsey is a really talented violinist, so when you pair her with some cool rap music, it is a really catchy song!

My Top 3 Favorite Songs

2. Turn the Radio Up by Kyle Andrews:

I love this song because it has a unique beat. I also like it because the artist, Kyle Andrews, is like the male version of Ellie Goulding. Go check it out!

 My Top 3 Favorite Songs

3. Radioactive by Imagine Dragons:

Ok, I cannot get enough of this song. When my brother Chandler and I listen to this song we jump on my bed and dance. Well, he TRIES to dance, but he has still got some learning to do ;). This song has such a great beat and makes you wanna get up and move!

My Top 3 Fav Songs

 So, if you’re looking for some new, fresh tunes, check these out! They are each really unique in their own way, and will make you wanna get up and dance.

Stop Hating The Mornings!

Do you moan and groan every time that 7a.m. alarm clock goes off for school?  I sure do!  If you’re like me, then you love to sleep in and cherish a dark, quiet room.  I’ve started to try to hate my mornings a little less.  Doing so actually makes your day easier!  Now this may sound impossible to you, but I promise it’s doable!  Follow these simple tips and you’ll be on your way to an easier morning!

            Natural light is one of the best alarm clocks there is!  Instead of sleeping with your blinds closed or a dark curtain, sleep with them open or opt for a sheer curtain.  The natural light, which will start to appear before your alarm goes off, will make it easier to wake up.  Since it’s harder to sleep in a bright room, your body will start to wake itself up on its own.  Another great way to wake up easier is to use citrus lotion or body gel.  Studies have shown that the smell of citrus in theChelsea Crockett- citrus body wash morning actually triggers the brain to wake up faster.  For your next morning shower, try an orange scented body wash!

            Delete that boring default alarm ring from your phone and apply one of your favorite songs to get your day going.  I mean, who doesn’t love waking up to the sound of Beyoncé’s voice? Last, have a positive attitude!  When you first wake up think of all the good things you have to look forward to that day.  Don’t stress about that honors history test.  Look past that and think positive!  Start your mornings off right…be happy!

Love,

            Chelsea
