While watching the Victoria’s Secret fashion show this year, I was hit with severe hair envy. Have you ever wanted hair that looks like it belonged on the Vicki’s Secret runway? Here is the inside scoop on how to get those beautiful waves that we love so much.

  1. Mousse: To get runway-level volume, apply a volumizing mousse to your roots. A fool-proof way to make sure your hair gets evenly coated, spray some mousse onto a brush and then comb through your strands.rs_634x951-151110125730-634-stella-maxwell-victorias-secret-backstage-ms-111015
  2. Dry right: Bow dry your hair until it is 80% dry, using your fingers to comb through it. Then, take a round brush if you have straight hair or a paddle brush if you have curly hair and smooth your hair. Make sure your nozzle is pointed downward so that your cuticles lay flat and don’t frizz.
  3. Pick out a part: After you are done drying your hair with your head flipped upside down, flip your head up again and where your hair naturally falls is the most flattering part for your face. Use the end of a comb to straighten the part out.
  4. Add extensions: This is optional and this step can definitely be skipped, but if you want a little length, you can clip in some extensions.
  5. Curl those strands: This is the fun part! To keep your curls from looking too uniform, use a larger curling iron and wrap sections around the barrel and away from your face. Then hold the barrel at a slight angle, this way you get volume at the root and the wave in the middle. Before you release your hair, close the barrel on the ends to give them a slight bend. To make the curls last all night, coil them up and pin them while they cool. Finish the style by spraying a boar-bristle brush with hairspray and brushing it through your curls to bring them together for a totally glam finish.

And that’s that! Now you know how to get runway-ready hair.

XOXO, Chels

            Hey insiders!

            As autumn rolls in, so does cold, windy weather.  This type of weather can irritate and dry out your skin.  Face masks and scrubs will be much needed, but also over-priced and very expensive.  Here are a couple DIY recipes that you can make at home and avoid breaking the bank!

            Pumpkin Face Mask.  For this recipe, you’re only going to need three ingredients: 2Chelsea Crockett - Pumpkin Face Mask teaspoons of pureed pumpkins (or canned), 1 teaspoon of organic Greek yogurt (milk can be substituted), and a half teaspoon of organic honey.  These products will help soothe and exfoliate your skin with the vitamins they contain.  To start off, take all of your ingredients and mix them together in a bowl.  Then apply the mixture to dampened skin and leave it on for 10 minutes.  Then rinse off with a warm washcloth.  You can repeat this process up to once a week!

            Cinnamon Face Mask.  Once again, this recipe only includes three ingredients: 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg.  Mix them all together and spread it evenly on your face.  Leave on for up to an hour.  It’s a long time but the results are worth it!  Rinse off with warm water and repeat 2-3 times a week.

 

                                                            Enjoy!

How to Reduce Bloating

Bloating is a common problem we all face and no matter what we do, it will never fully go away.  Along with over-eating and the struggle with periods, bloating unwantedly shows up and produces cramps.  For those of you that do not know, bloating is any general abnormal swelling of the abdominal area.  Although it produces pains that may not completely disappear, there are a few tips to help and reduce bloating.

Tip #1: Water, water, water!  Drinking lots of water is the first step to reduce bloating.  Chelsea Crockett - No Soda SignAvoid beverages such as soda or sparkling drinks.  These contain a large amount of carbonation which causes your stomach to grow bigger.

Tip #2: Limit the amount of fiber you put in your body.  Fibrous foods are harder to digest than regular food; therefore, they stay in your gut for a longer amount of time causing you to bloat.

Chelsea Crockett - BananasTip #3: Eat lots of potassium!  Potassium-rich foods such as bananas, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, and fish are good for over-bloated tummies.  Although it’s not a main source of potassium, yogurt also helps with digestion.

Tip #4: Watch the amount of food you eat and how fast you eat it!  Of course eating a smaller plate of food will reduce bloating, but did you know the speed of eating does, too?  Eating your food at a slower pace helps your stomach digest things easier; thus, reducing bloating!

Hope this helps you “burst your bubble”Wink.

Love, Chelsea

Another love of mine is online shopping. How awesome is it that I don’t have to get off my couch to shop till I drop? Today I am going to tell you my favorite online shopping sites, and the pros and cons of each.

161

Sammydress.com

  • Pro: This website seriously has everything. You can find everything from phone cases, to shoes, to the cutest sundresses you will ever find. They have an amazing selection of everything, and it is all so cheap! Their jewelry starts at $1.00 and goes to about $4.00. Their shirts are super cheap too! Most of them are between $4-8.
  • Con: The shipping! Because they are located in China, the shipping is not cheap and it takes a long time for your package to arrive.

151

Urbanog.com

  • Pro: They have such adorable stuff! I mostly go there for the shoes, but they also have a pretty awesome selection of clothes. But more on the shoes, I have bought three pairs from them already, and I plan purchasing more soon! They have an incredible selection of boots, sandals , flats, pumps, any kind of shoe you can think of even combat boots! Their shipping was speedy and the shoes are great quality. Every day they have a different pair of shoes featured in the “Deal of the Day” where they give you an amazing deal on the pair featured. They are always a super cute pair. I want them all!
  • Con: Sometimes my size of shoe is out of stock and that makes me sad.

Forever-21-Logo2

Forever21.com

  • Pro: Everyone loves Forever21 right? Their clothes are so cute and their style is right on target. Also, the prices cannot be beat! Sometimes they carry items on the website that are not available in stores, which is also pretty cool. I like to check out the clearance section, because there are always unbeatable sales there too.
  • Con: Because the prices are so low, that can mean that some of their items are not of the best quality, but you get what you pay for! Not all of the items are low quality, but you just have to watch out for it. Also, the online selection could be beefed up a bit, but other than that I love the site!

Go check these sites out! You never know what you will find. Happy shopping!

Love,

Secrets to Getting Bold, Beautiful Eyebrows

Hey Insiders! Would you like to know how to get beautiful, bold eyebrows? Here’s a few secrets to help you out. To start off, make sure your eyebrows are well-shaped.

Jan-18th-Bold-Brow-FB3A0801_pp_1Hey Insiders!

Would you like to know how to get beautiful, bold eyebrows? Here’s a few secrets to help you out. To start off, make sure your eyebrows are well-shaped. You can get them waxed at a local salon, pluck them yourself, or even purchase stencil packets such as the one from a beauty supply for only a few dollars.After you have your beautifully shaped eyebrows, brush through them with an eyebrow comb.

Next comes the fun part! As shown in one of my videos, “Big and Bold Eyebrows Tutorial!” You can purchase an eyebrow kit off of www.whiteninglightning.com


First, I will show you how to create these eyebrows with the kit, then without in case you cannot get one. Once you’ve purchased this, you’re ready to go! You want to have a sort of slanted, stiff brush for applying the next step. If you purchased the eyebrow kit mentioned above, first prime your eyebrows with the gel on the right end of the palette, which will set the powder in place. Next, using the dark brown color off the left end of the palette, load up your brush! Brush into your arch then fill up any holes or patches. Pretty simple, right?

Without the kit, you can still get those beautiful, bold brows. The best way to do this is to color up a few shades darker than your natural eyebrow color. Using an eyebrow pencil will work, but using eye shadow will give you a more blended, natural look.

Love,

Chels

Hey Insiders!

I got to Disneyland on Thursday with my whole family. It’s my little brothers birthday this weekend, so my dad thought it would be a nice treat for the family. I even met up with some awesome YouTubers KrazyRayRay, Traci Hines, and CharismaStar and so many more.

I had a great time on the rides and walking around the park, but I think what I loved most of all watching my brother and sister being so happy. It was impossible to see everything, I can’t wait to go back again one day!

Hey Insiders,

As many of you know, I am a dog lover. I have two beautiful puppy dogs named Buster and Jolly. I am going to separate the blogs about my dogs into two separate posts, just so you all can get to know my canine companions a little better.

On Christmas Day 2008, my dad told us he had a surprise for us, and he drove us to the shelter. We were so excited! We had always wanted a dog. Almost immediately after walking in we saw a big beautiful Black Lab, we knew she was the one as soon as we saw her. My dad started calling out commands to her and she did them! He told her to sit, and to lay down. She had a little trouble with the “roll over” command, though. We named her Jolly because we got her on Christmas

Jan-19-Jolly-1-FB3A0829

She was 1.5 years old and the woman at the shelter said that Jolly had been living on the streets and was found on the side of the highway along with a group of puppies. Jolly is so obedient and shy – she is the sweetest dog ever, I don’t understand why someone didn’t want her.

She means the world to me, best dog a girl could ever have. Soon I’ll tell you about Buster!

Love,
Sweet Kiss  Chels

Hey Insiders,

Lipstick is a very important part of any look. Getting the right shade and brand is crucial! My favorite brand of lipstick is Yves Saint Laurent.

Jan-17-YSL-1-FB3A0842Reason number 1 is because there are so many choices in color! There are literally hundreds of colors, from light flirty pink, to dark burgundy, to deep red. They even have shades of purple and orange! With all these choices in color, there is no doubt that you can find one that fits both your personality and style perfectly.

The second reason that I love this brand is the quality of their products. I would personally give them five stars. Their colors are opaque and bright. When you apply the lipstick, they melt on your lips like butter! After you apply, the color lasts all day. This means you don’t have to hassle with applying every few hours, and you don’t have to worry about your color fading. The packaging of their products is chic and classy. I feel so fancy using them. And to top that off, there is even a little mirror on the top of the cap so you can look at yourself while applying!

Jan-17-YSL-FB3A0845And finally, last reason I love YSL lipsticks is because they have sunscreen in them! I know that sounds kind of weird, but it is actually a huge benefit. By having SPF 15 in their formula, your lips are protected from harsh UV rays that the sun throws your way. This helps you maintain younger, healthier looking lips!

Try it for yourself, you will fall in lipstick-love just as much as I did!

Love,

Chels
