Bonding with #RealBratz BerryBread

OMG y’all!

I just had the most totally ah-maz-ing talk with by new BBF and total #RealBratz, Adrianne, a.k.a. Berry Bread!!

I was totes excited when she sent in her video all about why she is a #RealBratz!! Watch her epic video below:

Isn’t she the fabbest?? Berry Bread designed the website BratzBoulevard.com, has a rad jewelry business, is an online personality and is starting college in Fall!! She’s accomplished so much at such a young age because she began pursuing and unleashing her passions when she was just a kid!

Always with an eye for the arts, Berry Bread was only 6 years old when she would roam around her house, looking for trash she could transform into art projects.  Talk about trendsetter! This girl was all about upcycling before it was even a term!!

One of her fave crafts was to take household junk and reconfigure it into furniture for her dolls! An old egg carton and some toothpicks would be transformed into a dinner table for dolls! Too fab-a-lish!

Berry Bread jumped from dollhouse interior decorator to jewelry craftsman extraordinaire when she stumbled upon a DIY keychain kit. One beaded keychain later and this girl was hooked! She used her true blue #RealBratz intelligence and initiative to figure out how to make another keychain all on her own! After that, there was no stopping Ms. Bread. That girl was on a mission to design and create fab’n’fun accessories.

What I HEART most about Ms. Bread is that she didn’t keep all her fierce knowledge to herself. She decided to not only sell her goods, but to also teach her fans, the Berry Bread Crumbs, how to make their own!   Giving back in such a super sizzlin’ style is totes the #RealBratz way.

To share her gift of crafting, Berry Bread took to YouTube. She had already made an adorbs YouTube series staring yours truly! This new adventure was all about kickin’ it craft style. And her super supportive ‘rents even encouraged her to show her face in the videos so her Berry Bread Crumbs could relate to her more personally.

Berry Bread’s most fabsolute #RealBratz attribute is her inspirational confidence. She always encourages her Berry Bread Crumbs to believe in themselves and be comfortable in their own skin.

When I asked Berry how she developed such an awesome attitude she told me that a few mean kids had teased her for playing with the doll versions of us! It had totally busted her confidence and she thought about packing up all of her dolls and sending them away. But she just couldn’t do it! She decided that being a total Bratzie meant so much more to her than the mean things a few silly people said. From that moment forward, she opted to be brave, bold, pursue her passions, do what she loved and encourage others to do the same!

Berry Bread exudes a true comfort in her own skin that every #RealBratz should aspire to have. Her effervescent spirit is totally contagious and totally why I want this rad girl to be one of my new BBFs.

And she would be a great friend to have, too, because this girl understands the importance of friendship and lending an ear. “You never know how you can help someone. You always have to try.” She also told me that in order to be a good BBF, “don’t replace your friends when you get bored. Your best bud is your best bud for life.”

HEART!

When I asked Berry if she had any advice for all the Bratzies out there, this is what she said:

“You don’t have to go through a super hard time to prove that you are strong.  As long as you be yourself, keep doing your thing and pushing forward despite what anyone says, you’re a Real Bratz.”

She also wanted to let all of her amazing Berry Bread Crumbs know that she loves them and that hearing she has made a positive influence has made all her hard work worthwhile.

Way to go Berry Bread!

Advice from Real Bratz Jasmin

Namaste, Bratzies!

It’s Yasmin here, and I just had the most totally fabnomenal convo with #RealBratz Jasmin Larian, creator of Cult Gaia. Jasmin is only 24 years old and ALREADY has a booming company selling handmade flower crowns. They are soooooo pretty!

The best part about Jasmin is that she is totally a zensible girl! (Aaaaaand is one letter away from having the cutest name ever, if I do say so myself!!!) She is super chill and had a ton of fab advice for Bratzies unleashing their passions, like us!!

Jasmin says you should, “Do what you love and success will find you.”

We Bratz couldn’t agree more!! (See, I told you this gal was OM-mazing!!)

She also says to never let fear hold you back from unleashing your passion. You don’t want to be the thing that gets in the way of your own success. Jasmin admits, “I didn’t have any fear. I just did what I liked. Not having fear gives you the certainty that you will do.”

This chica is totes zen about her success. When I asked her secret is, she said it’s her BBFs!!!

“My friends are why I do what I do. It’s why I got started.”

Jasmin never set off on a mission to build her own company. She began by simply making flower crowns to give her friends on their birthdays. They were so beautifierce that boutiques couldn’t help but take notice. “I always made gifts for my friends. When I was little I used to design and decorate their birthday cards instead of buying one.”

It’s totes OM-Mazing how doing something so small, something that we ALL do — like designing a bday card or gift for a friend — can turn into a lifetime of doing what you love!!

And Jasmin has her fabnomenal friends to thank. They have been her biggest supporters and her most inspiring role models.

“There is so much success to be had in collaborations, between like-minded people. Having supportive friends is everything. You need people to bounce ideas off of and create from. Good friends inspire each other. The friends who have been influential in my own personal growth are the ones I look up to.”

We totes agree.

With Jasmin having such rad success at such a young age, I asked her what she hopes to still accomplish later in life.

“I want to keep doing creative things in one form or another. I want to stay positive and keep my zest for life so when I’m 90 I can say that I have lived my whole life to its fullest.”

We love you, Jasmin!!
