For Valentine’s Day this year, why not stray away from the typical “dinner and a movie” and come up with something more creative to do?  If you think outside the box, you and your date can have a memorable Valentine’s Day that’s just as fun and romantic. 🙂 If you’re not the most creative person in the world, here are some ideas for your day/night!

  • If you really want to get creative, create a scavenger hunt for your boyfriend with little gifts and treats at each spot.  You can make this as fun as you want! 
  • Instead of going out to eat, stay in and cook a dinner you both love!  Not only is it cheaper than going to an expensive restaurant, but it’s super fun to cook up a meal with your boyfriend/girlfriend. Chelsea Crockett - Hot Chocolate
  • Sometimes morning dates are even better than night dates!  Meet for coffee or brunch at your fave spot.
  • Picnics aren’t just for summer!  Bundle up and find the perfect spot to lay down a blanket and make a date out of it.  Bring lots of hot chocolate and blankets and maybe even your gifts to exchange if you decide to buy for each other, too.
  • Become a tourist of your own city for a day!  Whether you live near a big city or not, grab some money and a camera and go places you’ve never been before.

What are your plans this Valentine’s Day?  Let me know below if you use one of these unique date ideas!

Along with a stylish outfit and killer makeup, you’ll need some festive nails to complete your Valentine’s Day look!  Instead of getting your nails done for your special night, I found three different designs you can try out for yourself.  I think they’re fairly simply to do even if nails aren’t your thing!

  • If you like going all out, then the design on the right is for you! Chelsea Crockett - Love Nails I stumbled upon it on Pinterest and love it.  If you have a steady enough hand to attempt it, give it a try!  You might even be able to find nail stickers if you’re not artistic enough.  I’m in love with how festive and creative it is!   
  • If you like to keep it simple, I recommend painting your nails white to start off.  Then, add a black or red heart on your ring finger!  You can even add some glitter on top to make it pop.
  • I love using super thin nail polish brushes to decorate my nails.  It makes creating a design SO much easier!  Take one of these and paint the tip of an arrow on your middle finger.  Then finish it off by painting the end of the arrow on your ring finger to create the full arrow illusion!  Use either pink or red as the base and paint the arrow in white.  It’s so cute and outside the box!        

Which design are you going to rock this holiday?  Practice your artistic ability and give one of these a try!

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.  Whether you have a fun date night planned or a night in with the girls, there are so many fun treats and snacks to make and enjoy!  One of the easiest and most festive recipes that I stumbled upon is called Cupid’s Crunch popcorn mix.  If you want to make a yummy treat for you to enjoy this holiday, I recommend this one! 🙂

First comes first, you’ll need a few ingredients: 2 bags of microwave popcorn, 2 cups of pretzels, 1 ½ cups of M&M’s, a 12-oz. bag of pink Wilton candy melts, and other festive decorations such as sprinkles and heart shaped candies.  Chelsea Crockett - Cupid Crunch Popcorn MixNext comes the fun part!  Follow the instructions and pop the two bags of popcorn.  Pick out any unpopped kernels so you don’t bite into them later on!  Then, take the candy melts and place them in a microwaveable bowl (you may have to do this in shifts!).  Microwave them until all of your candies are melted.  Before pouring in your melted candies, crunch up the pretzels into pieces and pour them into a bowl with the popcorn and M&M’s.  Then, pour in half of your melted candies.  Using a rubber spatula, stir the mixture together and pour it onto a piece of wax paper.  Finish it off by pouring the rest of the melted candies on top!  Sprinkle on any extra heart candies or sprinkles that you have.  Let it sit until it dries then break it up into smaller pieces.  That’s all there is to it!       

How yummy is that?  Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think!

XOXO – Chelsea

The Do’s & Don’ts of Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day… The holiday you either await excitedly or dread grumpily. There’s no in between. Although you may be single this year, there’s no need to fear! Valentine’s Day can be memorable whether you have a special date or are spending it with your closest BFFs! Here are some do’s and don’ts I came up with to help you out this holiday.

  • DO make the best of it. Whether you have a date or not, keep a positive mindset. You don’t have to celebrate love with your crush. Celebrate the love you have for your friends and family! Maybe even buy them flowers and chocolate!Chelsea Crockett - Valentine's Day
  • DON’T freak out about not having a date. You’re not the only one. Valentine’s Day is just another day!
  • DO go on a date with your BFF! Why not have a girls’ night? Go to dinner and head back to your house for a movie night and sleepover.
  • DO come up with something special and creative to get your crush. Of course the typical chocolates and roses are totally acceptable for Valentine’s Day, but coming up with your own meaningful gift is even better!
  • DON’T take it too seriously. It’s just a day to tell your friends, family, or significant other how much they mean to you. Don’t over think it!
  • DO splurge on yourself. If you want to buy yourself a big box of chocolates and eat it all in one sitting, you do it girl!

Hope you have a memorable Valentine’s Day! <3

Love – Chelsea

Galentine’s Day is something someone came up with for all the single ladies out there! If you don’t understand, the first part in GALentine’s Day refers to your gals that are in the same boat as you! Celebrate this holiday with your BFFs by having a girl’s night! Here are some ideas to make your night the best Valentine’s Day yet!

  • Make a reservation at a nice restaurant and make a night out of it! Dress up and take lots of fun pictures to capture your night.
  • If you’d rather stay in for the night, have a baking night and make tons of Valentine’s Day treats. After they’re done, put on a movie and pig out :).Chelsea Crockett - Ice Skating
  • Wherever you live, there’s always something to do if you think outside the box. Where I live, there’s an ice skating rink that all of my friends and I like to go to every year! Think what’s different to do around your area that’ll be fun for you and your friends!
  • If you’re able to, treat yourself and take a weekend trip somewhere! Maybe you’re old enough to road trip to a nearby big city depending on where you live!
  • This idea is my favorite! Instead of doing secret Santa like you do around Christmas time, do secret valentine! Draw names at least a week before the holiday to give your friends some time to get their gifts. Maybe grab your valentine some chocolates and candy! Set a price range and have fun :).

Let me know what you and your BFFs do for Galentine’s Day!

XOXO – Chels

Valentine’s Day Attire for Your Special Date Night!

The world’s most dreaded yet loved holiday is right around the corner. If you have a date night planned and set, then you’re probably in the group that loves Valentine’s Day. You might have your night planned out, but you’ll still need a stylish outfit to rock… and I’m here to help :)!Chelsea Crockett - Valentine's Day Outfit

Depending on where you live, you’ll have to adjust your outfit to the weather. If you live somewhere warmer, the outfit on the left is one of my faves! Find a pair of sequined or sparkly shorts (sometimes you can even find a skort which is totally in right now!). Pair it with a simple, loose shirt or tank and finish the look with a black blazer. Add in some jewelry and heeled booties or wedges!

If you live somewhere that isn’t so warm and sunny, a new huge trend is high knee socks! If you have a red or pink dress or skirt, try pairing that with a pair of black or white high knee socks! They’re so cute and can replace wearing tights under your dress. It’s best to wear a pair of booties with them to complete the look.

Depending on how formal your date is, mix up your outfit to match the occasion! Also, pick out you outfit before the day of your date so you’re not stressed trying to find one. Let me know how it turns out!

Love, Chelsea

Valentine’s Day is less than a month away!  It’s time to start thinking about who you want to spend your day with, what you’re going to wear, aaaaand what fabulous manicure you’re going to show off!  Besides makeup, I love doing my nails.  Sometimes, a simple French manicure is the way to go. Other times, I paint all of my nails to represent the fun of a holiday!  Whatever I am feeling, I always follow these important tips.Chelsea Crockett - Valentine's Nails

When filing your nails, always file in one direction.  Try not to file too far down the sides of your nails or make them too short. Hard files can cause damage to nails and create splits. Always protect your nails with a clear polish before applying colored polish.  After following those guidelines, create and enjoy your masterpieces!

Many chain stores sell Valentine stickers that you can use to create some show stopping nail art.  You can also use bows, hearts, glitter, pink, red, and white polishes to create your dramatic look.   A design like on the right is simple, festive, yet different. The ombré design may look hard, but one YouTube tutorial later and you’ll master it! There are hundreds of online tutorials to teach you how to do almost any design. Before painting your nails, just google image Valentine nail designs and your styles will be endless!

XOXO, Chelsea

February 14th, the day all the perfect couples and secret admirers look forward to. Maybe your boyfriend is planning a dinner date for the two of you. Or maybe you’re planning a girl’s night in with chick flicks and all your BFFs! Finding a V-day present for your crush or simply someone you love can be tricky! Here are a few suggestions.

  • For the food lover. Food is the key to almost anyone’s heart (mine especially!) and since chocolate is the biggest treat of the holiday, have some fun with it! One of my favorite ideas is chocolate covered pretzels. Dip some pretzel sticks into milk, white, and/or dark chocolate and decorate them with pink and red sprinkles! Another mouth-watering idea is chocolate covered strawberries. These are delicious and not entirely unhealthy :)!Chelsea Crockett - Personalized Guitar Picks
  • For the artistic. DIY or homemade presents are always a little more heartfelt then the average gift. If you have a creative side, why not show it to the one you love by thinking outside of the box? One idea I saw on Pinterest was personalized guitar picks. Maybe your crush is into music? This is just one of the many ideas that show you put some thought into his gift.
  • For the sport lover. If your boy is into sports, purchase some game tickets or his favorite team’s jersey. He’ll love that you put some interest into something he likes!
  • For the adventurous. Instead of getting him an actual gift or present, plan a fun day for the two of you. Maybe go to the zoo, hiking, or on a bike ride and end your night with dinner and a movie, your treat!

Good luck! – Chels

Hey insiders,
               Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!  It’s always fun to bake something creative for that special someone in your life.  It’s also fun to bake treats for others that you love like your grandparents, your friends, or even a teacher.  Below I’ve included three different goodies that would make anyone’s mouth water.
               I always love to bake heart shaped cut out cookies.  A relative’s sugar cookie recipe is the always the best way to go.  My family and I like to use different shaped sizes of hearts and decorate them with pink, red, white, and purple icing.  We top them off with sugar sprinkles.
              Another yummy idea is to bake a heart shaped cake!  You can purchase a heart shaped pan or two and bake a cake in them.  Chelsea Crockett - Rice CrispiesHave fun icing for decorating your cake.  This will show your “special someone” that you took the time to make something fun and creative.  And don’t forget delicious!  
               If baking is not your thing, you can always make some rice crispy treats on the stove top.  You can use a cookie cutter to cut heart shapes out of the treats. You can also use popsicle or lollipop sticks to slide into each snack.  Feel free to decorate the rice crispy treats with icing if you really LOVE sugar!  I hope these ideas will help you spread love this Valentine’s Day!

                                                                         Hugs and kisses,
                                                                                     Chelsea

Hey everyone!
            Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!  So, it’s time to start thinking about how to celebrate.  You can show your love for that special someone or for your parents, grandparents, or friends.  One thing to think about is food!  When you think about it, most everything we do revolves around food.  Think about what your recipient would like most.  A box of candy, home baked cookies, Chinese take-out, a home cooked meal, or going to a favorite restaurant are among some of the ideas to choose from. 
            Next, you are going to need a special gift.  Gifts don’t always have to be bought.  Chelsea Crockett - CouponsGifts from the heart can often be simple.  You can write a letter to your loved one to tell them how much you really care and to thank them for bringing such joy to you.  Another fun idea is to make coupons for others.  You could write as many as you want.  Some examples would be:  A coupon for cooking dinner OR making the beds OR pizza and a movie night with your parents/grandparents.  Remember it’s the thought that goes into the gift that matters.
            I hope some of these ideas help to make your Valentine’s Day extra special this year.  Remember it’s not necessarily a time to spend money on others, but a time to speak from the heart about what matters most…..those you love!

                                                                       Chelsea
