Take the Gratitude Challenge

Whatz the hapz, Bratz?!

Are you familiar with the Gratitude Challenge?

The Gratitude Challenge is a 21-day challenge that asks participants to state one thing they are grateful for each day. Most people do the Gratitude Challenge in November as a countdown to Thanksgiving.

The rad peeps behind the Gratitude Challenge insist that if you acknowledge and state aloud your gratefulness for all the blessings in your life, you will start to see the world as a totally rad place. You will see the silver linings instead of the gray clouds.

I’m all about staying positive, and I am always up for a challenge! So, this year I thought I would get down with grateful!

I’m on day 15 of the Gratitude Challenge.  Here’s what I have so far:

Jade’s Epic List of All Things I’m Grateful For:

  1. My BBFs! My besties are everything!
  2. High heels
  3. Flea markets
  4. All things D.I.Y.
  5. Goggles. Perfect for settin’ up science experiments with style!
  6. Sushi
  7. Funky nail polish colors
  8. The super rad new magnetic nail polish that uses a magnet to make wavy designs! I HEART when science and fashion collide!
  9. Foreign films and indie flicks
  10. People who believe in me and inspire me to chase after all of my passions
  11. Books! I dig reading. Comic books count, too, right?
  12. The ocean! I love to surf on the sand and skate on the boardwalk
  13. Travel – I’ve been able to go to so many rad places. Um, hello, Paris!!
  14. Facing fears. Anytime I’ve been afraid, I’ve pushed past the fear and ended up with amazing results.
  15. Hmm…

Any ideas on what else I should add to my Gratitude List? Would you take the Gratitude Challenge? What would you have on your list?

NaNoWriMO!!

Namaste, Bratzies,

I am so happy. November is one of my most favorite months out of the year. Can you guess why?

 

NaNoWriMo!!

Do you Bratzies know about NaNoWriMo?

NaNoWriMo stands for NAtional NOvel WRIting MOnth! For the month of November, people from all around the world commit to completing the first draft of their novel. Or at least, to complete the first 50,000 words of it! It’s sooooo cool! Everyone who participates in NaNoWriMo instantly finds a community of writers!

There is a website where you can sign in, upload your pages and share your daily word count. But, you don’t have to sign up online to participate! I didn’t! Instead, I just told my BBFs all about it, and they are doing it with me!

Once a week we get together and tell each other about our stories. We also give each other ideas, and, most importantly, lots of encouragement!! Writing is hard. Hugs, kind words and constructive criticism are a must!!

Trying to write 50,000 words in one month is no joke! But participating in NaNoWriMo, and giving your dream of being a novelist a real shot, is totally the ZENsible thing to do!

I’m writing a fantasy book! What are you Bratzies writing about? Give me the summary of your story below! I bet it’s OM-mazing!

Ooh, and if you need some reading inspiration, check out my brand new comic book, all about me pursuing my passions!

Find it under the GAMES section on our website!

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!!!

XoXo

Sasha’s Prom Night Survival Kit

Yo, Bratzies!!

I am so totally jazzed! It’s my fave time of year: PROM SEASON!!! Going to Prom is a total dream come true, but it can turn into a total nightmare if you’re not prepared!!

Introducing Sasha’s Prom Night Survival Kit. Throw these diva-licious items into your clutch for a surefire fab night of fun and friends!!

Sasha’s Prom Night Survival Kit:

FOLD-UP FLATS: You Bratzies know how much I love my fierce heels, but it’s hard to rock that look and keep pace with a full night of dancing! Even a diva like me won’t pass up on fun for the sake of fashion. Luckily, we don’t have to! You can buy totally adorable flats that fold up to fit into any purse. Bring these along to ensure your feet don’t get tired before you do!

BLOT PADS: Girls, I know you spent a ton of time perfecting your prom make-up. Last thing you want to do is have it smudge and smear while wiping perspiration from your brow! Save the flawless look you created by bringing along some blot pads. You can blot away the sweat without any cosmetic fret.

BOBBY PINS: Let’s be honest, by the end of Prom, your hair will be a mess. Keep your lovely locks in presentable order – at least until you take your Prom photos! – by stashing away some extra bobby pins.

GUM/BREATH MINTS: You will spend the night trying to chat with your BBFs by screaming over the band or DJ. Make sure your friends are happy to get up close and personal by keeping mints handy. Double bonus: your breath will be fresh when talking to boyz!!

STRING: When you’re tired of wearing your corsage or flower crown, a little bit of string can go a long way to preserve your Prom memories! How you ask? Use that string to hang your fab Prom flower pieces upside down and dry them! Remember to do this as soon as you take off the floral pieces. A wilted flower is way harder to dry and preserve!

CASH AND I.D.: Even if you don’t plan on going anywhere after the dance it’s way smart to stash some cash and your I.D.  If you’re anything like this Drama Queen, you will be totally famished and dying to get some grub before heading home. Bringing your wallet ensures you won’t miss out on any post-Prom fun, or get stuck eating mom’s meatless meatloaf leftovers as your midnight snack.

EVER PURSE: 27-year-old Real Bratz Liz Salcedo has come to our Prom aid with a promtastic new clutch! Her EverPurse (https://everpurse.com/) has a built in phone charger!! Now you can promenade without worrying about losing tabs with your besties because of a low battery life or tripping over silly charger wires while trying to boogie down with your BBFs!! Plus, the clutches are totally adorbs!

And lastly, PHONE PLAYLIST: Make a totally rockin’ Prom Playlist on your phone. Not only can the fun jams help get you pumped while prepping for Prom, they can keep the fab energy going while hangin’ with your besties after the dance.

BONUS TIPS:

Drink plenty of water. Perfect the “selfie.” And, MOST IMPORTANTLY, do not be afraid to dance like the rock stars I know you are! Dance like no one is looking! Dance like everyone is looking!! Just dance!!

This is YOUR time. YOUR year. YOUR memory for the rest of YOUR life. Love your friends. Love yourself. And I know you will have a totally fabtastic evening.

I can’t wait to hear all about your totally amazing Proms!!

XOXO,
Sasha

P.S. If you’re NOT going to Prom this year, consider throwing an ANTI-PROM or DUCT TAPE PROM!!! Make your DIY prom into anything you want it to be!! It’s a totally fun way to spend a night with your BBFs!!

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!

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?

Here’s what’s been on my playlist lately.

  • Mindless Behavior – Valentine’s Girl
  • Justin Bieber – As Long As You Love Me
  • Calvin Harris featuring Ne-Yo  – Let’s Go
  • Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe
  • Nicki Minaj – Starships

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?

That’s all from me. Dance with ya later, Bratzies!
