Olympic Fashions

Namaste, Bratzies!

I’m so excited the Olympics are here. I love watching people from all around the world come together to celebrate our differences and similarities with some healthy competition. It is uber zentastic. I wish yoga were an Olympic sport! I’d be all over that!

Lately, super fabulous and patriotic make-up styles have been invading the interwebs. I love the idea of supporting your home team by rockin’ your country’s flagship colors and styles.  Here is a list of some of my fave Olympic looks:

Flag Flare: Some amazing make-up artists have been painting their eyelids like the flags from their home countries! My favorite one so far has been the Union Jack eye make-up. So pretty! So detailed!

I have also seen people paint their country’s flag on their lips! This look doesn’t fly with a lot of flag designs, but when it works, it works! The Japanese flag lipstick is soooo pretty!

Patriotic Colors: You can represent your country in a million different ways just by wearing your country’s national colors! I saw a beautiful picture of a woman who had layered her jewelry with pieces that represent all 6 different colors in the South African flag! OM-mazing!

You can also paint your nails, pick our your wardrobe and add colored extensions to your hair, all in your country’s unique colors!

Olympic Rings: Olympic rings are fun because you can pull them off anywhere! Big hoop earrings! Bangles! A ring on each finger! I’m also a bog fan of painting your nails white and then using a toothpick to draw each of the Olympic rings on your fingernails! It’s super easy and super cute!

Do you have any other Zensible Olympic fashion suggestions?

Funky ‘n’ Fab Football Fashions

What’z the hapz, Bratz?
This Sunday is the Superbowl! Are you totally psyched?!? I dig any opportunity to get together with my besties, eat some fiery foods and cheer at the top of my lungs! And, just like for any other epic occasion, I’m all about dressing the part! Whether you’re cheering for the Seahawks or the Broncos, there are seriously boss looks you can find at home to show off your team spirit!

Jade’s Guide to Funky ‘n’ Fab Football Fashions:

 

COLORS: Once you know your team colors, it’s super easy to support your team by layering the colors! Cheerleaders should take note! We’re going to look fabulous.

Seahawks colors: blue, silver and bright green

Broncos colors: orange and blue

EYE SHADOW: There are two ways to show off your spirit in shadow. You can paint each eyelid a diff color. For example, if you’re a Broncos fan, color your left eye blue and your right eye orange! Or, use all the colors of your team on each eye. Remember, use the darker colors on the lid and the lighter color above the eye crease. For example, if you are a Seahawks fan, use the darker blue color as eyeliner, cover your eyelid in green up to your eye crease, and then use the lightest color, silver, up to your brow!

NAILS: We are fans of painting every other finger a different team color for alternating awesomeness!

LAYERED SHIRTS: Super easy to do! Bronco fans can wear a blue camisole under an orange shirt. Make sure the blue camisole is longer than the orange shirt and peeks out on the bottom to complete the look. You can also layer your team-colored sweaters, sweatshirts, t-shirts and more! Just make sure the longer shirt is on the bottom.

 JEWELRY: Wear it all! Everywhere! We usually recommend being conservative with your accessories, but when it comes to game day, go all out!! I totally encourage you to put on every piece of jewelry you have that is your team colors! The brighter and the danglier, the better!

LACES ‘n’ RIBBONS: Pick up team-colored shoe laces from your local dollar store and then complete the look by adding team-colored ribbons to your hair.

You will shine with team spirit from head to toe!

Go team!!

DIY Holiday Gift Crowns

Namaste, Bratzies

Are you in need of some OM-mazing gift ideas for your BBFs? I’m making my besties flower crowns! It’s super easy, cheap and beyond fab. Giving D.I.Y. holidays gifts is the ZENsible thing to do!

Ask a parent for help.

Here’s what you need:

- Headband

- Silk flowers (We like getting silk mistletoe for the season, but you can use any type of flower you like!)

- Glue (A hot glue gun works best if you can get your parents to help!)

Now all you need to do is…:

Glue the flowers on to the headband! Voila! The look, feel and vibe is totally unique to you! I’m sure the end result will be OM-mazing!

To get more into the season, you can use dried flowers to decorate barrettes!

Simply glue dried baby’s breath and pussy willows to the tops of barrettes! For added awesome, keep the branches attached. It will enhance the ethereal look.

So fab for the holidays!

Let me know how is goes!

XOXO

 

Holiday Cards

Yo yo yo, Bratzos!

‘Tis the season for corny Holiday Cards.  You know what I’m talking about, the ones with pictures of you and your family on the front.  The whole ordeal has so much drama-rama! Parents dragging you to the mall, putting you and your siblings in matching sweaters, and having to smile in front of a cheesy backdrop. All this drama, just so your parents can send that photograph Christmas card to all your friends and family, letting them know what kind of grades you got in school this year. (Shudder!)

Not to be a Grinch, but those photo cards are a big Bah Humbug!

This year, the  Bratz and I are making our own Holiday cards! We think you should, too!!

Here’s how to do it the Bratzie way:

Get your group of girls together and raid each other’s closets for the most fabulous or outrageous outfits imagineable! Don’t be afraid to get silly! Wigs! Shoulder pads! Your mom’s ratty old slippers from the 1980s!

Dress up in all the hilarious mix ‘n match styles and then ask your parents or older siblings to take awesome group photos of you with your besties!

Next, download the FREE Bratz Cam App.  You can get to it here:

http://www.bratz.com/en-us/section/games

This will let you add fabulous fierceness to your photos by enhancing them with our awesome filters, borders and stickers!

Last, take the final photo and show it to your parents. When they go to print their holiday cards, ask them to print you 20 of your own holiday cards with your fab photo on the front for you to hand out to your friends at school!

Last, decorate your locker or cubby hole with the fab holiday card so you can remember that fun day with your friends all year long!

XOXO

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!

(Picture by voucher codes.co.uk)

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.

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!!

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!

Slumber Party Fashions

What’z the hapz, Bratz?

Our EPIC SLUMBER PARTY is tomorrow night!!!!! Ahhh, I seriously can’t wait.

It’s totally important that you bring the right stuff to a Slumber Party. To help you Bratzies remember what to bring here is:

JADE’S RADTACULAR SLUMBER PARTY MUST HAVES:

PAJAMA FASHION STATEMENT:

A good Slumber Party is totally active. You will be jumpin’, jugglin’ and jivin’ the night away. Opt for gnarly boxers or bright printed pajama pants over a nightgown. Shorts will give you the extra edge whether you’re engaged in a pillow fight, or bouncing on the bed, singing karaoke.

Equally important are kozy slippers or funk-i-fied socks. I’m a total fan-girl for the striped socks with individual toes! Keep something fluffy, furry or funky on your footsies to stay warm as the night wages on!

SLUMBER IN STYLE:

Bring a ton of hairbands, ribbons and nail polish. One of my fave things to do at a p.j. par-tay  each other’s hair in krazy kool wayz! I’ve been totally inspired ever since we rocked our new Twisty Stylez look! Can you pull off this fierce fashion statement?

Another must is funky nail polish. I’m ob-to-the-sessed with neons right now! And nail art is totally in vogue! Bring different color nail polish and toot picks. The toothpicks can be used to draw stripes, polka dots or other designs! If you can’t use nail polish, try our super kool stick-on nail art that comes with our Totally Polished dolls!

Ooh! And don’t forget to let your toenails dry before putting your socks or slippers back on! Tee hee!

PLACE TO LAY YOUR HEAD:

A sleeping bag is a MUST! Not only does it keep you warm at night, but also it can be used as a sled to pull your friends around the room in! And don’t forget your pillow!! I ALWAYZ love to being a blank white pillowcase and some permanent markers! At  Slumber Parties my besties will write messages to each other on our pillowcases! It’s such a rad memento to remember our fabtastic time!

Hint: Sleep on the side of the pillowcase that was NOT written on so marker doesn’t get all over your face. Wait until you’ve washed the pillowcase to sleep on the marker side.

CRUMB FOR THE TUM:

I cannot survive a Slumber Party without sitting down to watch my fave flicks! When you watch movies, obviously, popcorn becomes a MUST. And it can be super fun to dress up your popcorn! Take out individual bowls and pour some popcorn into each. Then add different delicious delicacies to each bowl! I like adding m&ms to one popcorn bowl, caramels to another and cayenne pepper to the third!! Mmm, sooo delish!

THERE’S A TIME TO STAY STATIONARY:

Lastly, don’t forget papers, pens and markers. They are a must for games like M.A.S.H., Truth or Lie, and simply documenting the epic night in!!

I REALLY HOPE YOU JOIN IN OUR KRAZY KOOL SLUMBER PARTY TOMORROW!!!!

We will be LIVE POSTING from our Slumber Party ONLINE ONLY. This way, you can join from the comfort of your own home! Tune in to our social media pages to participate in the party.

The invite is below!

REMEMBER:

If you’re not old enough to be on social media, ask a parent or older sibling to keep you updated on all the fun ‘n’ fab things we are doing!! This way, you can still totally play along!!  Also, if you can’t invite friends over to throw your own Slumber Party, pop yourself a bowl or popcorn, bring out some neon nail polish and have a radtacular party-for-one!

We can’t wait to hang out with you at our Slumber Party tomorrow night!!!
