Bratz Club, Here We Come!!!

Yo, Bratzies!

Sasha here, and on behalf of my girlz we want to give YOU a crazy loud shout out!! THANK YOU! 

Because of all your awesome enthusiasm, Cloe’s idea for a Bratz club is a go!

We have SOOOO much to think of before our club launches. Turns out there is a ton that goes into club making! Whew! Maybe you Bratzies can help us out?

We have read all the totes fab club names you gave us and have narrowed it down. Next week we will give you our fave club names to vote on!! Check the blog Monday to vote!

After narrowing down our club names, we elected our club government. Cloe is President. Yours truly is Vice President, thank you very much. Kool Kat will be treasurer and our Pretty Princess is Secretary and Historian.

Our new club makes all us Bratzies, from all around the globe, part of something special. We are a team. We are a unit. And our club will be a safe place where Real Bratz will always be welcomed and will always be loved.

The Bratz club members will climb on each other’s shoulders, reach for the stars, unleash their passion and change the world!! We are so crazy psyched for this rad club of support and friendship! Holla’ if you’re happy with the hapz, Bratzies!

Now we need to come up with fabtastic wayz to unite us! Yours truly came up with the R.A.B. Fab (Real.Awesome.Bratz. Fabulous!) idea of wearing the same thing on Mondays. This way you and your secret Bratzie brothers and sisters will feel united! You know I love fashion, so I will keep changing it up. One Monday I may suggest we all wear green. Another Monday we may all wear our hair in side braids or wear our hats or belts sidewayz. Whaddya think? Rad, right?

We could also come up with a Kray-Z-Kool top-secret handshake and club password. Or a credo you must recite before becoming a full member, like:

“I swear to my Bratzie core, that I will always be a fab friend to any Bratzie in need, will always believe in myself and will always unleash my passion. I will always take a stand, stand out and stand for changing the world!”

Or something like that! Whaddya Bratzies think? Is there anything we are forgetting? Do you have any other ideas for our new club?

Ahhhhh! So much to do! So little time! We need your help!

REAL BRATZIES 4 LIFE!!!
Stay Stylin’

 

Youngest Oscar Nominee EVER!!

Yo, Bratzies! Sasha here, and I’m so totally stoked for the Oscars this weekend! I heart glamtastic productions like the Academy Awards. Any excuse for my girlz to hang together and get dolled up like the stars, am I right?

This year, I’m particularly pumped for the Best Actress category. Did you Bratzies know that Quvenzhané Wallis is the youngest person EVER to be nominated for an Oscar? It’s true!

Quvenzhané followed her passion by auditioning for her role in Beasts of the Southern Wild when she was only five, even though the audition called for six-year-olds! Quvenzhané said her character “does what is right and she is fearless. And that’s what I did (by coming to) the audition.”  Way to go, fellow Bratzie!

Quvenzhané may be a scene-stealer, like me, but when she grows up, Quvenzhané wants to be a dentist so she can help people smile. I just know she will rock anything she puts her mind to!

Quvenhané had an awesome goal and found her own unique way to go for it. That’s what makes her a Real Bratz girl!

Tell me, Bratzies, have you ever done something fearless to pursue your passion?

Grammy Review

Sasha here, and I was loving EVERY MINUTE of the Grammys this last weekend. I was so happy to see Adele take home the win on Best Pop Solo Performance! To think…she started out her music dreams wanting to be a TALENT SCOUT, looking for the next great singer instead of being one! Her star started rising when a friend of hers posted a video of her singing on MySpace. It just goes to show, true talent will always find a way to shine!

It was also so cool to see Kimbra win more than once for her duet with Gotye. “Somebody That I Used to Know” is definitely one of my fave songs. I found out Kimbra had been writing songs since age 10! Did you know she and Gotye recorded that winning hit in her bedroom with almost no equipment? How amazing is that? I record the songs I write in my bedroom at home, too…maybe someday it’ll be me with the hit song!

Who were your favorite ladies and gentlemen at the Grammys? If you were nominated for a Grammy, what amazing talent would they be recognizing in you?

Keep Winning!

Beyond The Red Carpet

Sasha here, Bratzies, and I had such a great time watching all the amazing ladies at the Golden Globes this month! It was so great to see women like Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence win for some INCREDIBLE performances, and I got so see my favorite singer, Adele, win for “Skyfall!” I was so thrilled to see her crazy good song in the new James Bond film get an award, I actually screamed!

I decided to read up on a few of the winning ladies after the Awards, and found out that so many of them have taken some pretty amazing chances and stances in their lives. Jessica Chastain, for example, is a strong vegan and anti-animal cruelty activist, inspired by her mother, who was a vegan chef. Jennifer Lawrence graduated from high school two years early with a 3.9 average in order to begin a career in acting. Adele originally wanted to specialize in talent scouting and hoped to launch other people’s careers before her music was discovered on a friend’s MySpace page. These women are so much more than the glamor and glitz of Hollywood, it blows my mind!

What are some of the chances and stances you take? Where do you think your passions will ultimately take you?

Catch you later, Bratzies!

 

School Uniform Stylin’

Nowadays a lot of schools require students to wear uniforms. Some people think that it is such a drag, but us Bratz think it’s totes easy to spruce up the outfit and rock that uniform with style!

There’s a lot more to style than just the clothes you wear. Even if others are wearing the same clothes, a girl can always make any outfit her own by adding some fun accessories or playing with different hairstyles. Here’s an idea – if you have to go to school wearing a uniform and the colors are blue, black or khaki, try adding a bold orange, pink or red necklace. Even some funky color stud earrings will do the trick.

Another popular way to accessorize is with a belt. Maybe try to find a metallic gold or silver belt to jazz up the day. Tons of inexpensive belts can be found at places like Forever 21 or H&M. There are plenty of fun ways to mix up belt styles. You can be traditional and place the belt in the loops, but if you are wearing a skirt try loosely hanging the belt around your waist. Or maybe even grab a pretty sash (or scarf if it’s long enough) and tie it around the waist. That could totally fancy up the outfit!

If you’re looking for another way to style up that everyday uniform, try having some fun with different hairstyles. Wear cute headbands that can be found at accessory stores like Justice, Claire’s, Forever 21, or even the little boutiques at your local mall. Also try fun styles that are totes on trend right now like the top knot (check this YouTube Tutorial out to learn how), a side pony-tail, a funky braid (here are 4 easy braids you can recreate from Refinery29) or girly-girl curls (ask mom to help curl your hair).

Remember girls & guys, be sure to know your school’s dress code rules and always ask your parents for permission to surf the Internet for tips & tools, or to use any sort of heating products.

~ Love ~

 

Sasha’s Top 5

Hiya Bratz! Sasha here and I’m in such a great mood I thought I’d be the one to blog today!

With the launch of the Bratz Style Starz App on iTunes I felt inspired to update some of my music with new jams to dance and sing-along to and I am SO happy I did.  There were a lot of songs from my usual faves…like Justin Bieber (talk about a dreamboat!), but there are also a few new singers / bands that have been a blast to rock out to.

These newly discovered tunes totally having me singing and dancing the day away with a smile. With catchy lyrics and upbeat tempos, how can any Bratzie resist?

  • Mindless Behavior – Valentine’s Girl
  • Justin Bieber – As Long As You Love Me
  • Calvin Harris featuring Ne-Yo  – Let’s Go

I’m always on the hunt for some great new tunes and want to hear from you! Tell me in the comments below – what are some of your favorite songs and artists of 2012?

Mixing Up Outfits

Hi Bratzies! It’s so close to back to school time and that gets me excited because I LOVE back to school shopping! A new backpack, new shoes and awesome outfits are what gets me motivated for fall. But here’s the bad part: once the first few weeks go by and I’ve worn all my brand new outfits I get stuck in a fashion rut! So I’ve been thinking of new ways to spice up my outfit choices.

One great way to mix up your outfits is to pair a dress with a cute top! It really works wonders to your wardrobe by creating a whole new look. A short sleeve bright cardigan layered over a printed dress topped off with a nice belt comes together nicely. Try it out and let me know how many new outfits you come up with!

I mixed it up and made this dress into a whole new outfit!

 

 

Bratz Trendy Sunglasses Tips

When it comes to enjoying the hot summer rays every girl needs a pair of cool shades! Not only are sunglasses a great way to protect your eyes from the sun they also compliment any outfit–especially a swimsuit! On those days when you just want to rock shorts and a plain T or tank your sunglasses can add that extra pop you need to turn heads. Celebs accessorize with cool shades all the time and you can too!  Sunglasses are always in fashion so no matter what brand, style or color you choose to rock, you’ll look stylish!

Fashionably Yours,

Jewelry Trends: Bracelets

Hey fashionistas, Sasha here!  Do you ever have those days where you can’t pick just ONE accessory to wear?  Guess what…so do I! But I realized, why wear one bracelet when you can wear them ALL!  When I’m in a t-shirt & jeans mood, I love piling on arm accessories to dress up a simple outfit. Plus, it’s a great way to make a statement…and you know how I love to make an entrance anywhere I go! Check out some of these summer bracelet trends and then try them out for yourself!

Mixed & matched bracelets are totally of-the-moment right now!  Wear a big, enamel bangle with a skinny, sparkling one for an eye-catching look!

Mix & match!              

Stackable bracelets are a must for your jewelry box.  I love wearing a ton of ‘em at once so they make a fun jingling sound! You can also wear just a few for a more classic look.

Stack ‘em up!

Wear a tough cuff with a dainty string bracelet to show your sweet and edgy sides…I could totally see Cloe rockin’ this look!

Rockin’ style!

Rose gold is so in this season!  Wear a big watch with some chain bracelets so it’s always fashion time!

Fashion Time!

What’s your favorite bracelet look? And how do you deck out your wrists?

Summer Hairstyles

Hey Fashionista! Do you know what’s in store for your lovely locks this summer? Here are some summer statements that are totally easy breezy for this sunny season!

Buns: Try a messy bun for a carefree day out at the beach and shopping at the mall, or try a sleek sock bun to get your hair out of your face and still look fierce!

Jade rocks two buns for a stylin’ summer ‘do!

Braids: Braids are back this summer! My favorite is the fishtail braid. It’s a fab alternative braid that adds a little fun to the classic braid.

Yasmin looking pretty with her side-swept braid!

Ponytails: Ponytails are always in, but this summer try to adding your own twist to it, literally! It’s totally cool and totally easy!

Me rockin’ a twisted ponytail!

Short Chic: If you’re feeling a little adventurous this summer, try a perfectly pretty pixie cut or a short bob! It’s fresh, fabulous and fun for the summer months. Celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens, Emma Watson and Michelle Williams are sportin’ these stylish short ‘dos!

Jade was experimenting with the idea of cutting her hair so she tied it in a high ponytail to see if she liked the short bob look.

What’s your go-to summer hairstyle?

Laterz Bratzies!
