MOvember

Yo yo yo, Bratzos!!

Sasha here, and I want to talk to you about the hottest autumn trend. Moustaches are in! And they’re not just for hipsters. Not during the month of November, anyway.

This November, help raise awareness for men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, by joining in the epically fabulous, MOvember.

Movember stands for “moustache November.” Men who are supporting the cause, grow their moustaches for the entire month of November. But you don’t have to be a dude to dive into all the dramarama. You know this Queen Bee isn’t giving up an opportunity to rock the latest look!

Mo-Bros may have it easier by simply letting their facial hair grow, but Mo-Sistas have many options to help the cause and look fab doing it!

Here are a few ways Mo-Sistas can celebrate Movember:

1: The Finger-Stache.

Simply place your pointer finger above your upper lip to look like a moustache. Whenever you see a Mo-Bro, make your finger-stache to show your support!

(Picture by us.movember)

 

2: The Pony-Stache

Use your own hair or ponytail and pull it around to front of your face to act as a moustache!

3: Jewelry-Stache:

Check out these ultra fab sunglasses and fabnomenal ring! Some moustache jewelry even donates a part of their proceeds to men’s cancers research! Check before you buy! Shopping is so much more fun when you’re helping peeps at the same time! Am I right?

4: Nail-Staches

For an easy and free moustache look, you can always paint on your stache! This way, you can never leave your look somewhere or forget it at home! You’ll be supporting the cause 24/7!

5: Stache-on-a-Stick

Cut out a moustache in your fave construction paper color and tape it to a straw for an easy, no-drama moustache.

Candy Fashion!

Yo yo yo Bratzos!!

Sasha here! I had a howlin’ Halloween!

My favorite part of Trick or Treating is that it’s a total drama-rama smorgasbord! And I’m not talking about all the yummy candy. Nor am I referring to the cool costumes. I mean, Halloween rocks because it gives you a door-to-door buffet line of fun fashion possibilities!

Don’t follow what I’m saying?

Here’s a picture to help you get the picture!

Halloween hooks me up with all the candy (and candy wrappers!) I need to make sweet jewelry and purses! And you can make these confectionary fashion statements, too. It’s totes easy peasy.

Here is a fabtastic blog I found on making Bratztastic bracelets:

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-A-Bracelet-Out-Of-Candy-Wrappers/

If chunky jewelry isn’t really your thing and your looking for a dramatic fashion statement, read this great blog on making boss bags from candy wrappers:

http://iwannanewbag.blogspot.com/2007/04/purses-made-from-candy-wrappers-etc.html

Everyone will be asking you where you got the look!

Remember, these fashion statements take some time to make, so you don’t have to gorge on all your candy at once! Just chew as you go! Create as you salivate! It’s too fab!!

Do you have any suggestions on any other fab fashions you can make from your Halloween swag?

Love ya lots!

XOXO

Halloween Goes Glam

What’z the hapz, Bratz?!

Jade here!! And I am totally geeking out because Haloween is almost here. It is, like, the most radtacular holiday ever!! Can you Bratzies guess what my favorite part is: dressing up!

This year is all about bringing the “glam” to the “quirky kool.” It’s super easy to do! Just think of whatever it spooky creature you want to be for Halloween and then glam-i-fy it!

Picture this:

Glam Monster-

A terrifying monster rockin’ a rad neon green feather boa and a fierce set of heels! Just because you were born in a swamp doesn’t mean you can’t have style!

Glam Witch-

A spooky witch with tinsel extensions, a mirrored belt and dazzling faux-diamonds. You won’t know if people are more spellbound by your wicked potions or by your signature fashion statement.

Glam Zombie-

A disgusting zombie who offsets her craving for brains with a crimson dress and ruby slippers. Why be the “walking” undead when you can be the “strutting” undead?

See? Glam-i-fying your costume is totally fun and totally easy!! There are a ton of rad combos you can create that I haven’t even thought of!!

The other kickin’ Halloween trend this year is doing the total opposite. Start glam and add a tad of gross!

Start off your look as a seriously gorge princess, fairy or Prom Queen… then add vampire teeth!

The best part about these mix ’n’ match costumes is that they are totally D.I.Y.! You can create a ton of looks from what you already have in your closets!

Tell me what you are going to be for Halloween!! I know whatever you pick with be totally krazy kool!!

LAST COMIC BOOK INSTALLMENT – PASSIONVIEW OLYMPICS

Our Heroez have tried EVERYTHING to relight the Olympic Torch: lighters, blow torches, birthday candles. But nothing is working!!

Is this the end for the Passionview Olympics?

Once again, all the people of Passionview came together to hold the Olympic Torch.

 

 

“The Olympics are all about uniting the land,” said Shira. “Once we’ve come together, I’m sure the flame will reignite!”

After all the people of Passionview held the smoldering torch, Yasmin used her Super Twirl to kick up sparks and reignite the torch. But it didn’t work!!

 “Oh no!” said Yasmin. “Something is wrong! The Olympic Torch still won’t catch fire!”

Cloe said:

Evilla was ELATED to found out the city of Passionview needed her and came as quickly as she could.

“I’m here. I’m here. Do not fret, citizens. I, Evilla Vanderbelt, will hold the Olympic Torch and save the Passionview Olympics. Bring out the balloons! Start the parade!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

“OK,” said Yasmin. “I hope this works!”

Yasmin, once again, used her Super Twirl. Sparks flew through the air! Immediately, the Olympic Torch went up in flames!

The people of Passionview rejoiced. As a community, along with Evilla, they carried the flame to the Passionview Arena and lit the Official Olympic Cauldron for the games to begin!

THE END

Adventures of Cranky Cat, Part 2

Last Week in the Adventures of the Action Heroez:

Without their keynote speaker, Cranky Cat, to give out diplomas, the P.F.I. students are once again at risk of not graduating!!

Hiding in her top-secret penthouse lair, Evilla tries desperately to entertain Cranky Cat.

“Look, I made you a ball out of thread I stole from those fashion twits. Don’t you just love it?”
“Meh-eow.”
“You’re hoping those Action Heroez will save you. Admit it.”
“Meh-eow.”

The Action Heroez try desperately to find Cranky Cat. Cloe speed dashes around Passionview. Yasmin twirls through tunnels. Shira flies high over the city and then…

 

 

 

Shira spots Cranky Cat!! He is perched crankily on the balcony of what must be Evilla’s secret lair!!

Shira calls for the other Action Heroez to help!

“Come, Cranky Cat. Don’t you want to be rescued?” – Shira
“Meh-eow.”
“Yas, use your Super Twirl to distract him, while I speed dash in and grab Cranky Cat.” – Cloe
Yasmin spins but she goes TOO FAST!!

 

 

 

OH NO!! DISASTER!!
The wind from Yasmin’s twirl blows Cranky Cat OFF THE BALCONY and into the MOAT BELOW!!!

“I’ll save him!” cries Shira. She flies down and dives into the moat to rescue Cranky Cat.

Back at the P.F.I. Graduation Ceremony, Cranky Cat was able to give his (wet) speech and saved graduation!

And to thank the Action Heroez for saving him, Cranky Cat took the microphone and gave a very appreciative and enthusiastic,

“Meh-eow.”

THE END

Action Heroez and Cranky Cat

LAST WEEK: In the Adventures of the Action Heroez:

The Action Heroez tricked Evilla into retuning the Passionview Fashion Institute’s students’ designs. But Evilla swore she would get her revenge. Does Evilla have something more evil up her sleeve?!?

The Action Heroez arrive at the P.F.I. Graduation ceremony to thunderous applause.

The heroez quickly take their seats, eager to see the ceremony’s keynote speaker and web sensation, Cranky Cat!!

MEANWHILE…

Cranky Cat sits in his dressing room backstage, crankily waiting to give his keynote speech.

“Meh-eow,” says Cranky Cat.

The Action Heroez, and Cranky Cat, have no idea that Evilla Vanderbelt is lurking nearby…

Angry that her previous attempt to thwart graduation was hindered by the Action Heroez, Evilla sneaks backstage and CATNAPS Cranky Cat!

“The students can’t graduate without their speaker. Boo-hoo ,” says Evilla. “Aren’t you just positively tickled to destroy their joy with me, Cranky Cat?”
“Meh-eow.”

Back in the graduation auditorium, the students wait for the keynote speaker, but he doesn’t come. Gasps! Cries! Oh no!! Has something happened to Cranky Cat?!?!

The Action Heroez rush into action, but when they get to Cranky Cat’s room, it’s too late.

“Don’t worry,” Shira says, “We will find Cranky Cat and return him safely to the graduation. Somehow… ”

Will the Action Heroez be able to save Cranky Cat? Tune in next week!!

 

Action Heroez Part II

The Action Heroez MUST find a way to get the students their designs back! Time is running out!!!

A COMPROMISE IS MADE! The students reluctantly agree to let Evilla show her designs down the runway be theirs, in exchange for returning their stolen garments.

“After all,” the students thought, “how many designs could she possibly have to show??”

Thrilled, Evilla claps her hands and bright lights flood the runway, revealing… A MOUNTAIN OF BURLAP SACKS!!!

“Each one of these beautiful sacks must make it down the runway,” said Evilla. “Or not a single student will get her designs back! Aren’t they GORG??”

“Oh no!” the students cried out. “There’s no way we can get through all those burlap sacks by midnight! We’ll never be able to graduate!!

 

“It’s OK, guys,” said Cloe. “I have an idea!!”

“I hope this works,” said Cloe, as she throws one of Evilla’s burlap sacks over her Action Heroez outfit and uses her SUPER-POWERED SPEED DASH to run down the runway!!

The students cheer as Cloe runs each sack down the runway. Moving so fast, she is little more than a blur!!

“Nooooooooo!” Evilla cried. “This isn’t fair!”

“Sorry, Evilla,” said Shira. “we did our end of the deal. Now you have to return the students’ designs so they can put on their runway show and graduate.”

“A deal,” Cloe said, taking a deep breath as she finished running the last sack down the runway. “Is,” Cloe took another deep breath,”a deal.”

Evilla reluctantly calls on her henchmen to return the fashion designs to the students.

“Hooray!” cried the students!

“Don’t celebrate yet, Action Heroez,” said Evilla. “I WILL GET MY REVENGE!!”

 

TUNE IN NEXT WEEK TO SEE WHETHER EVILLA GETS HER REVENGE ON THE ACTION HEROEZ AND THE STUDENTS.

IS THE P.F.I. GRADUATION STILL IN DANGER???

New School Year, New YOU Year

Yo, yo, yo, Bratzos!

A new school year is upon us and I have a feelin’ it’s gonna be scorchin’!

Every August/September, school starts up again and we get the awesome opportunity to reinvent ourselves. Don’t let yourself feel bogged by the person you used to be! Embrace the new you!!

Summer changes people! (Especially if you took part in our #UnleashYourSummer Bucket List!! No one can challenge herself, face her fears and have the most epic summer of all time and NOT change!!) We grow. We mature. We get a break from school and a chance to sit back and re-evaluate who we are. Then decide for ourselves if there are any changes we want to make.  Summer means change!

Do you want to try and be more outgoing? More bold? Do you want to make new friends? Or pare down your group to spend more time with your true besties? Do you want to experiment with new fashions? Hairstyles? Or a new nickname?

This year, aspire to put an end to any of the drama-rama in your life and commit to being fab-a-lish. If you don’t know what to do, Bunny Boo has got the tips for you!

Follow these three steps for a school year you will never forget! YOLO!!

1- Recite.Remind. Repeat.

Recite my motto: New School Year, New YOU Year!

Take this to heart. Every new year gives you a chance to explore new sides of yourself! Have you always wanted to try out for the cheerleading team, drama club or MATHletes, but were too afraid of what your friends would think or that you wouldn’t get in? Now is the time! Be fierce! If you don’t make the club, at least you tried! And if your friends give you grief, then they weren’t very good friends to begin with! Talk to that boy you were always nervous to speak to. Try that super short bob cut that you always secretly thought was too cute. Challenge yourself to be the person you want to be. The person you know you are inside. A new school year = A new YOU year. Go for it!! We know you rock; now show the world!!

2 –  Meet Locker

It can be super easy to stay in your comfort zone, but playing it safe means you never play to win! For the most epic school year ever, challenge yourself to meet new peeps. Join fab-a-lish student clubs, hit up the football games, and be a part of the Homecoming dance committee. You never know what cool people you might meet. And REMEMBER: go in with an open mind. Summer didn’t only change you, it changed your classmates, too. Everyone deserves the right to start fresh in the new school year. If there are people in your new club that you never clicked with, give them each a new chance. If you see that they haven’t changed, go back to simply being polite, but staying clear. You never know, they may surprise you! Summer may have turned them into rad new peeps you could totally be besties with!! Maybe they are just looking for someone to give them a chance!!!

3 – Confidence Couture

To show off the new you, get a new ‘do. Head back to school rockin’ your fab new style. Sadly, people can’t see the internal changes you have made over the summer. They can’t see your commitment to be more outgoing and try new things. They can’t see your open mind. They can’t see that you had an epic summer of facing your fears. What they CAN see, is your fierce new look. Find a style and haircut that compliments your new, true personality. Make sure it is authentic to who you are so you feel comfortable rockin’ the look every day. When people see your scorchin’ new style, they will be more open to seeing the new you!! It’s not just about your first day look, it’s about your new confidence couture!

Can’t wait to hear all about my little divas rockin’ this new school year!!

Stay fabulous!!

Tweevils are Cyber Bullies

What’z the hapz, Bratz??

If any of you Bratzies were on Facebook, you would’ve seen that the Tweevils hacked into our Facebook page!! It was totally KRAY-to-the-Z! Krazy!! And beyond NOT kool!!

After they went on our Facebook page, they left posts pretending they were us!! Can you believe it?! They even tried to pry secret information about us from all of our Bratzies!! But the total worst part: they changed our Facebook password so we couldn’t get back in!!

Luckily, our EPICALLY RAD Bratzies took to Twitter and told us what the Tweevils changed our password to. Those puke-pink Tweevils totally cyber bullied us, but we will NOT let it happen again! I did a little research and found some primo tips on protecting your privacy in cyber space!!

JADE’S RAD ANTI-CYBER BULLYING TIPS:

1 – NEVER tell anyone your password. Not even your BBFs!! A true bestie would never make you feel bad for not sharing. When you lose your password, like we did, you lose total control of your page and your image. Avoid this epic fail by keeping your secret password secret.

2 – Never send texts or pics to anyone that you wouldn’t want getting around. If there is an adorbs pic of you blowing a bubble, but you aren’t supposed to be chewing gum, do NOT send the cute pic to your friend. Instead, show it to her in-person whenever you see her next. Anything that could get you in trouble should stay in your possession only!

3 – Never open any messages from people on the internet that you don’t know or know to be bullies. These messages could contain gnarly text or links that contain viruses!! Best to play it safe and just stay clear.

4 – Don’t save your password on any computer — except for maybe the ones you own at home. And alwayz make sure to log out of all your accounts at the school media center, library, Internet café or even at a friend’s house. If someone is anglin’ to cyber bully, you don’t want to make it easy for her to pick you as the next target.

5 – Pause before you post.  Peeps will judge you by the messages you leave behind on social media. If you think you’ve written something rad and full of swagger, read it again to make sure it can’t be misinterpreted as mean or crude. Once you’ve given it the once-over, if you’re still  amped by what you wrote, go ahead and click: send.

BONUS TIP – Don’t be a cyber bully yourself. A true Bratzie is never mean to someone, even when you have the opportunity to be mean anonymously. Do YOU want to be like the Tweevils? It takes a lot of character to take the high road, but if there is one thing people know about our Bratzies, it is that they are over-flowing with character.

Lastly, if you see someone being cyber bullied, tell an adult you trust. For more tips, read our radtacular blog, called “Friends Stand Up.” You can click below to read it:

Stay stylin’, my friends.

Sayonara #UnleashYourSummer

Hey y’all!

I cannot believe summer break is almost over and school’s about to start back up! Cah-to-the-razy! Crazy! This summer, the Bratz and I were on a mission to have the most EPIC SUMMER OF ALL TIME! I don’t know about y’all, but we totes met our goal! Go team!!

You fabulously awesome Bratzies gave us a TON of ideas for our #UnleashYourSummer Bucket List. We didn’t hit ALL of them, but there is always next summer!! T.B.H., we did soooooo much, I don’t know how we could have fit in anything else!! We went hang gliding, white water rafting, volunteered at charities, wrote poetry, tried new foods, talked to our crushes, created our own water park and so much more! We pushed the limits, faced our fears and had an AH-MAZ-ING time doing it!!

I’m super glad that we Bratz decided to do a combined Summer Bucket List. By having each one of us add things to the Bucket List, we all had to try something that scared us a little. We all had to go out of our comfort zone just a bit. Obvs, a friend would never make you do anything you didn’t want to do or didn’t feel comfortable doing. That’s not what a shared Summer Bucket List is about. It’s about helping your friends, lending a hand, and giving your BBFs a gentle nudge to challenge themselves.  Friends encouraging each other to grow is totes the only true way to #UnleashYourSummer!!

I think the FAB-solute bestestest thing that came out of challenging each other with our Summer Bucket List was how tight we became! Jade, Sasha, Yasmin and I were already besties, but now that we have experienced all these cool new things together, we are closer than ever!

Have any of you Bratzies experienced that? What crazy thing did you and your BBF do to become super tight? Did you and your besties do anything ridiculously awesome this summer?

Love you all!

xoxo
