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’

 

Safety While Surfin’!

OMG!!

I abso-TOTAL-lutely love talking with all of you, my BBFs (Best Bratzies Forever), over the Internet! Cloe, here, and it’s fo’ realz rad to be able to catch up with all my mains, who live all around the world! The Internet is an ah-mazing place, but you Bratzies must remember, staying safe is the key to having fun!

In my cheerleading squad, I had to learn all proper safety precautions so I didn’t hurt myself mid-cheer. No one likes to suffer an injury. Super-chanting B-R-A-T-Z would be way less awesome if I had to cheer while wearing a neck brace!

Security online is just as important. Lucky for us, safety is always stylish. Here are some tips on how to have a crazy cool time on the Internet and stay safe while surfin’.

1 – Never use your real name on the Internet. When creating usernames, make up fun nicknames to go by. If you have to put numbers in your username, don’t use your birthdate or age. My username is: Angel14. Angel is after the nickname my BBFs call me, and 14 is after the jersey number of my favorite soccer player, Abby Wambach!

2 – Never give out your home address, phone number, school name or passwords. This information is supposed to stay super secret. If anyone asks you for your real name, home address, phone number or secret passwords, sign out of the website ASAP! It’s not cool to ask kids for all their deets.

3 – Never agree to meet someone you met on the Internet without asking a parent first. Even if the person is a girl your age and has some super sweet and totally free make-up to give you. If one of your online friends asks you to meet them in the real world, let an adult know ASAP. Your parents will want to meet your cyber-sister online before deciding whether it’s cool to hang in person.

4 – If anyone starts using nasty language or says something that makes you uncomfortable, sign off immediately. A Real Bratz is never mean, even online. Instead of spending time talking to the rude dude, spend your time finding a new friend! Or coming over to the Bratz blog and talk to us! I always LOVE hearing from you!

5 – Just like you don’t want others to be mean to you, you should never be mean to others. Even online, please use nice language and be kind. Lately, the Bratz and I keep hearing stories about cyber bullying. Not cool, cyber bullies. Not cool.  Real Bratz stay positive, stand up for friends and never gang up on someone else. Even when they can stay anonymous on the Internet. If you see foul language or cyber bullying, tell an adult. The Internet should be a fab-fun place for everyone!

I know all these rules can seem totally lame because sometimes you make super awesome buddies online and you want to give them your information. I have a ton of fab friends that I’ve met on the web, but I still always make sure to play it safe. If you want to break any of these cyber safety rules, ask a parent first. They can determine if the situation is safe for sharing or not!

Now that we’ve gone over all the rules for safe cyber surfin’, I’m super psyched that you and I can hang out together in a safe online environment!!!

Do you Bratzies have any other tips I should know on how to keep out of harms way while browsing the web?

I was thinking of changing my username. Do you awesome Bratzies have any new username suggestions for me?

Love ya lots!

 

Jade’s Daylight Savings Survival Guide

Howzit hangin’, Bratzies?

Jade here, reminding all my rad BBFs it’s time to SPRING FORWARD into Daylight Savings time!!

Super early on Sunday, March 10, while we are still in dreamland, the clocks will jump forward an hour. This means we’ll get one hour less of sleep this weekend. Uber lame, right?

It also means the sun will rise and set an hour later, causing the mornings to be darker and the evenings to be lighter longer. If you’re like me, this change can totes mess with your sked. But have no fear, fellow Bratzies, I’ve got all the tips you need to get through this change unscathed. Introducing:

Jade’s Day Light Savings Survival Guide!!!

DARKER MORNINGS:

-       CHANGE YOUR WAKE-UP TUNES – If you have a crazy-hard time waking up for school when it’s dark outside, change your alarm clock radio to play a more upbeat station. Pick something that plays fun pop or dubstep. If your iPod hooks up to your alarm clock, make a bumpin’ exercise mix, with songs like, “I Knew You Were Trouble” by Taylor Swift. It’s sure to get your body moving and your bottom out of bed!

-       NATURAL MAKE-UP PALATE – Applying make-up in the dark can be super tricky. If your bathroom doesn’t have good light, try switching your color palate to neutrals. That way, if you accidentally put on too much eye shadow, no one will be able to tell!

-       PRE-PICK CLOTHES – It is totes easy to clash your colors when getting dressed in the dark. Don’t worry about embarrassing color coordinating confusion! Take advantage of the sun being out later and pick out your outfits the night before. You may even get to sleep in longer now that you won’t waste time staring at your closet, trying to decide what to wear!

-       FLASHLIGHT BEDAZZLEMENT- If you will be walking to school in the dark, try bedazzling a flashlight. This way you will be safe, and have an awesome looking accessory to go with your outfit. For a little extra fun, you can put a colored gel over the light to make it shine your signature color!

BRIGHTER EVENINGS:

-       BRING SUNSCREEN – After-school sports, like the cheerleading squad, will now be practicing in the sunlight. Be sure to bring and apply sunscreen!

-       BEDAZZLED BOTTLES -  Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! If the sun is beating down on your bod, it is a Bratzie must to replenish the H2O. Bedazzle a water bottle with your name and signature color. Even when you’re sweaty, you can still look stylin’!

-       RUNNING SHOES – Time to dust off the old running shoes. Now that it’s lighter longer, it should be safe to go for an after-school run or walk with your friends. Ask your parents first!

Dancing Daffodils

Namaste, Bratzies!

I’m blooming with excitement! Not only is March my birthday month, but its official flower is my personal fave: the wild daffodil!

I dig the wild daffodil for rivers of reasons. It’s bright, cheery and even though it’s usually yellow and white, the flower can be found in my signature color, pink! Also, scientists found a natural compound in the daffodil bulb that may help treat brain cancer! Bringing cheer and helping change the world totally makes the wild daffodil an honorary Real Bratz flower!

What I heart most about wild daffodils is that they energize my creativity by popping up out of nowhere. Just like my story ideas! I could totes chillax in a meadow of wild daffodils and write in my journal all day!

I’m not the only Real Bratz inspired by wild daffodils. English author, poet and diarist, Dorothy Mae Ann Wordsworth, wrote about stumbling upon tumbling daffodils while walking though the woods with her brother, famous poet William Wordsworth. Inspired by his sister’s journal entry, William Wordsworth wrote a super-famous poem about daffodils dancing in the breeze.

You can read the totally awesome poem here: https://wordsworth.org.uk/daffodils.html

Can you Bratzies tell me what your favorite flower is? Or tell me about the greatness your fave flower inspires in you!

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?

Snooze & Style

Let’s face it, getting up in the morning for school can be hard sometimes.

It’s especially hard during the winter when it’s cold and gloomy outside, but you are nice and warm under the blankets! Lots of times we hit snooze over and over (and over) again to give us a few more precious moments of sleep. But those are extra minutes we could use deciding what to wear to school. So NOT cool. We Bratz love to have all the time we need to choose the perfect outfit for the day. A Bratzie can never be rushed when it comes to styling. But we also like to have our beauty sleep too!

Decisions, decisions—luckily, we always have back-up plans!

  • Sometimes we try to plan our outfit the night before (which totes helps us out).
  • Other times we choose an outfit that we’ve worn in the past and loved.
  • There are also our Bratz style staples that we make sure are always on-hand in the closet, just in case we are short on time (check out last week’s blog post      for more deets).
  • One of our favorite things to do is talk on the phone with our bestiez about different outfits to wear throughout the week. Our friends are always there to offer great style advice and we couldn’t be happier!

How do you figure out what to wear every day? Help a Bratzie out and share tips in the comment section.

Snooze ya later!

 

NYC Fashion Week Love

Hi there, Bratzies! Jade here and I’ve got a serious case of New York Fashion Week! What a great week for the city, I so wish the Bratz could have been there front and center for all the glam!

Let’s talk runway trends. From fierce prints to super brights like blues, reds and greens, it’s going to be another bold year in fashion! Think florals with stripes, funky prints with a girly touch and intense color blocking with a bright blues and soft pinks. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and colors that may not typically match, Bratzies. Let the imagination run wild this season because it’s all about making a personality statement and taking outfits to new heights. Sure sounds like Bratz style to me!

I definitely will be taking some serious fashion trends to the L.O.V.E Jade boutique and will be sure to share all my style inspiration on the blog.

I’m SO excited to share my new styles with each of you and see what all the Bratz fashionistaz will be wearing this next year.  I always love seeing the great outfit creations from each of you! What were some of your favorite looks from the runway? Post your comments below!
