Well, most of us have settled into school by now and that means our lazy days of summer have ended.  Soon we will be going to football games dressed in our sweaters and scarves. However, I’m not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet.  I’ve been thinking about some things I could still do with my friends to enjoy these last few weeks of HOT weather!

One thing on my list is to try to keep my summer tan for a bit longer.  Hopefully I can swim on the weekends and chill at the pool.  Why not host an end of the summer party?  Take some fun pictures and make a scrapbook with them.  Scrapbooking can sometimes take a long time so I tend to let Snapfish help me with it.  It’s a website that takes your pictures and lets you design your own book… or they can design it for you!  It’s really reasonable and lets you capture your memories in a really fun way!  (Hint:  These make great gifts for your friends!)

Another idea is to spend some time reading that book you said you wanted to read all summer long!  (If you’re not a reader, I bet there is a TV or Netflix series you’ve always wanted to try!) Either way, I’m going to try to finish my homework early and settle in for some “me” time!  I love to get lost in a good book!

Last, but not least, make some delicious snow cones!  If you’re just not ready to say goodbye to summer and sunshine, eat a few cold, yummy treats!  We have a little snow cone maker that we bought at Target along with the syrups and the paper cones.  All we do is add ice and voila….a delicious snow cone!  I love to have one on a hot day!

Enjoy, Chels

Make Your Room Brighter for Summer!

Ah!  Summer is almost here!  I can just picture myself laying by the pool with a cool drink in my hand and getting my tan on!  I love to change up my bedroom to make it brighter and cozier in the summer.  Try a few of these simple tips to get a quick summer bedroom!

Summer is all about the sunshine, so it’s time to ditch those dark curtains!  Try hanging up sheer or light colored curtains in order to let the natural light in.  Leaving your curtains open will help you feel more awake and actually make your room look larger!  Try placing fresh flowers in your room or burning a candle with a summer scent like coconut!  Bright flowers will put you in a happy mood, while a good smelling candle will get your senses going!  If you have dark colored bedding, try throwing on a few bright colored pillows to lighten your bed!  Seeing bright colors Chelsea Crockett- bright bedroomeverywhere will really put you in the summer mood!

All of these changes are quick and easy and can be done in a day!  Get summer ready by doing a slight bedroom makeover!  By the time fall comes around, you’ll never want to change your room back!

Love,

Chelsea

Sun Tattoo

“Here comes the sun, do do do do…”  That Beetles song has been stuck in my head ever since the start of spring! I, like all of my fellow residents…

“Here comes the sun, do do do do…”  That Beetles song has been stuck in my head ever since the start of spring! I, like all of my fellow residents of the Midwest, am so tired of cold and clouds! I am ready for Mr. Sunshine to show his radiant face! One reason I am more than ready for sun and warm weather is because I found a really cool way to make sun tattoos! What is a sun tattoo? It is when you put a sticker on your skin and then spend the day out in the sun and at the end of the day take the sticker off and you have a pale spot in the shape of the sticker! This is a really cool idea because the pale spot stands out against your tan skin, creating a natural “sun tattoo”.chelsea crockett sun tattoo

A super easy way to make a sun tattoo is to put Elmer’s glue on your skin in the shape you want your sun tattoo to be, and then sunbathe for a while! A really important thing to keep in mind, though, is that you always need to put on sun screen before sunbathing. Those rays can be really damaging to your skin and cause premature aging. The sun tattoo will still show up if you use sunblock. When you think you are done sunning, you can wash the glue off!

Soak up the sun, darlings!

XOXO, Chels
