Happy New Year

Happy New Year, Bratzos!!

Have you come up with a New Year’s Resolution? My original resolution was to be fabulous. But then Jade pointed out that  I am already fabulous! LOL!!

My new New Year’s Resolution is to really commit to pursuing my passions! And not just one passion; all of them! It’s a new year and I am ready to unleash my passion onto the world!

You Bratzies may remember that back in the summer I wanted to follow my dream of becoming a star, but was too afraid to go after it.  (Read my old blog about it here:

http://blog.bratz.com/house-of-bratz-5-12-13

Yasmin was so sweet and told me she had my back. She encouraged me to fight for my passions, and now, in 2014, I’m going to! It’s time to stop letting fear get in my way. If you never try, you will never succeed, right?

This year, I’m going to be bold, be brave and make my friends proud! Who’s with me?!? Let’s start a revolution of passionistas!

Want to find out which passion profession you are best suited for? Take our awesome My Passion Aptitude test:

Tell me which passion profession you got, and tell me your New Year’s Resolution!

Action Heroez and Cranky Cat

LAST WEEK: In the Adventures of the Action Heroez:

The Action Heroez tricked Evilla into retuning the Passionview Fashion Institute’s students’ designs. But Evilla swore she would get her revenge. Does Evilla have something more evil up her sleeve?!?

The Action Heroez arrive at the P.F.I. Graduation ceremony to thunderous applause.

The heroez quickly take their seats, eager to see the ceremony’s keynote speaker and web sensation, Cranky Cat!!

MEANWHILE…

Cranky Cat sits in his dressing room backstage, crankily waiting to give his keynote speech.

“Meh-eow,” says Cranky Cat.

The Action Heroez, and Cranky Cat, have no idea that Evilla Vanderbelt is lurking nearby…

Angry that her previous attempt to thwart graduation was hindered by the Action Heroez, Evilla sneaks backstage and CATNAPS Cranky Cat!

“The students can’t graduate without their speaker. Boo-hoo ,” says Evilla. “Aren’t you just positively tickled to destroy their joy with me, Cranky Cat?”
“Meh-eow.”

Back in the graduation auditorium, the students wait for the keynote speaker, but he doesn’t come. Gasps! Cries! Oh no!! Has something happened to Cranky Cat?!?!

The Action Heroez rush into action, but when they get to Cranky Cat’s room, it’s too late.

“Don’t worry,” Shira says, “We will find Cranky Cat and return him safely to the graduation. Somehow… ”

Will the Action Heroez be able to save Cranky Cat? Tune in next week!!

 

Action Heroez Part II

The Action Heroez MUST find a way to get the students their designs back! Time is running out!!!

A COMPROMISE IS MADE! The students reluctantly agree to let Evilla show her designs down the runway be theirs, in exchange for returning their stolen garments.

“After all,” the students thought, “how many designs could she possibly have to show??”

Thrilled, Evilla claps her hands and bright lights flood the runway, revealing… A MOUNTAIN OF BURLAP SACKS!!!

“Each one of these beautiful sacks must make it down the runway,” said Evilla. “Or not a single student will get her designs back! Aren’t they GORG??”

“Oh no!” the students cried out. “There’s no way we can get through all those burlap sacks by midnight! We’ll never be able to graduate!!

 

“It’s OK, guys,” said Cloe. “I have an idea!!”

“I hope this works,” said Cloe, as she throws one of Evilla’s burlap sacks over her Action Heroez outfit and uses her SUPER-POWERED SPEED DASH to run down the runway!!

The students cheer as Cloe runs each sack down the runway. Moving so fast, she is little more than a blur!!

“Nooooooooo!” Evilla cried. “This isn’t fair!”

“Sorry, Evilla,” said Shira. “we did our end of the deal. Now you have to return the students’ designs so they can put on their runway show and graduate.”

“A deal,” Cloe said, taking a deep breath as she finished running the last sack down the runway. “Is,” Cloe took another deep breath,”a deal.”

Evilla reluctantly calls on her henchmen to return the fashion designs to the students.

“Hooray!” cried the students!

“Don’t celebrate yet, Action Heroez,” said Evilla. “I WILL GET MY REVENGE!!”

 

TUNE IN NEXT WEEK TO SEE WHETHER EVILLA GETS HER REVENGE ON THE ACTION HEROEZ AND THE STUDENTS.

IS THE P.F.I. GRADUATION STILL IN DANGER???

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!!

xoxo

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!!!

Great Book, Great Look, Great Gatsby

Namaste, Bratzies!

Don’t you just love reading? I adore the written the word. There is nothing like cozying up to a good book and rewarding yourself with the reverie of reading. One of the most OM-mazing stories I read this year was The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It chronicles the journey of a young man moving to NYC, his affluent cousin and the lovelorn neighbor he befriends. The book is full of twists and trysts and is one of the greatest American novels ever written. I adore it!

I was super excited when I heard Baz Luhrmann and Leonardo DiCaprio were bringing the book to the silver screen. I saw it opening day! I love seeing novels adapted to screen because of the creative freedoms explored by the directors and actors. It’s like reading a whole new book!! The film indulges all of the fabulous opulence of the Roaring ‘20s, but the music was modern and edgy. Such a fantastical flip to the feature! Buzzing with true Brattitude, the sets were blinged out in glitz and glam, but nothing compares to the OM-azing fashions! I was so jazzed to see the jazz era fashions come to life!!

This is one of the reasons I HEART watching film adaptations. The Great Gatsby novel has been around for decades, but its revival on the big screen has re-emphasized the fabulous fashions of the twenties! Drop-waist dresses, retro-print head scarfs and strappy sparkly sandals are totally zensible summer-ware!

The look flows into evening flare, as well! I know I am going to indulge my literary side and my lavish side by buying long strings of fake pearls and a sparkling headpiece! Even guys can get into the fashion action by boasting a bowtie or a pastel vest.

Now I’m even more obsessed with The Great Gatsby! The novel had already pulled on my heart with its romance, honesty and hopefulness, but now that its flick influenced fashion world-wide, the story has won my heart for life! I highly recommend reading the book. Then treat yourself to movie tickets, a bucket of popcorn and a string of pearls. You won’t be sorry.

XoXo

 

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’

 

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!
