I Believe in Mermaids

Namaste Bratzies and HOBles alike!

Did everyone have a zentastic Spring Break? My break was OM-mazing! I went to the beach, did yoga on the sand, collected seashells and just inner peaced with my rad self.

I love going to the ocean! It is so peaceful and inspiring. When I’m at the beach, I love watching the horizon and keeping my eyes peeled for dolphins, whales and mermaids. Yes, mermaids!!

Did you know that scientists believe we have only discovered about 70% of the world’s sea creatures? There are still so many mysteries buried deep in the oceans. Under the blue seas reside the deepest caverns and the tallest mountains on the planet! Perhaps, hidden away in one of those deep-sea caverns, lives a handful of mermaids. You never know!  And it doesn’t hurt to believe.

When Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas he wrote in his diary about mermaids that swam along his ship! He even drew fabtastic pictures of them in journal. Later, Columbus decided that he didn’t see a mermaid but had actually seen a manatee. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s pretty hard to confuse the two! Maybe he just second-guessed seeing such a mysterious and mythological creature.

I know I may seem silly to believe in mermaids, but it is fun to believe that Mother Earth still holds some magical secrets! One of my total fave movie quotes is, “Don’t overlook those lovely intangibles. You’ll discover those are the only things worthwhile.”

 

I’m not saying mermaids exist. I’m just not saying they don’t exist.

I didn’t see any mermaids on my spring vacay, but I had a fabtabulous time lookin’ for them!

Do you believe in anything wondrous and unseen, like mermaids?

Stay believin’!

P.S. Don’t forget to come back to the blog on Sunday to see what members of the House of Bratz will be wearing on Monday!!!

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!
