Every year around this time the Bratz and I get together to talk about we are the most thankful for. It’s so much fun to get together, giggle a lot and talk about the things that make us smile every day!
Since Thanksgiving is next week, the girlz got together earlier and it was such a blast! We gave each other big hugs because we were (of course!) very thankful to have such amazing friendz in life. Then we giggled lots about all the cute boys that we were thankful to have crushes on. We’re also extremely thankful for our families! They teach us so much every day and love us no matter what (which is really awesome). Sometimes we can get a little annoyed, but at the end of every day our famz are always there to encourage us to follow our dreams, like the way Sasha’s fam encourages her to follow her fashion designing dreams with all the colored pencils and trips to the fabric store.
But most of all, we all agreed that we are really really REALLY thankful for all the wonderful and amazing Bratzies that we get to call friends! Each one of you are beautiful and special…we don’t know what we would do without all of you. We always love the conversations we get to have; from reading the comments on this blog, chatting on Facebook and tweeting our hearts out on Twitter. We are also really loving this new Instagram world and showing our friendz a different part of our lives. Pretty much what we’re saying is we just adore being your friendz and hope that you feel the same way!
What are you thankful for this year? Be sure to share all the things you are thankful for with friends, family and with us in the comment section below.
Happy Thanksgiving, Bratzies. We wish you all the love in the world!
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.
It’s no secret that the Bratz absolutely love to get dressed up and create some funky, fabulous fashions! We always have tons of fun playing with the clothes in our closets and trying to create more new outfits with items we already own. If you girliez are like us (which we know you are!), fashion and style is a big part of your daily life.
One afternoon we were all hanging around with our BFFs talking about our favorite outfits. After talking clothes for hours (obviously), we compiled a little list of items that all of us seemed to have in our closet that we often used in different ways to create awesome outfits. These items are great to keep on hand and tend to appear every year in some sort of trendy fashion. We thought it was a good idea to share these Bratz Style Staples with all of our friendz! These pieces can create many different styles that fit your personality and the best part is you can wear them from year to year!
Here are our Bratz Style Staples –
Leggings – invest in printed ones like leopard, zebra or a bright neon pair.
Jacket – denim or leather. Even a cropped jacket would be awesome!
White T-shirt – always great to pair with a maxi skirt, denim pants or printed leggings
Accessories – a statement or chunky necklace or earrings always make an outfit pop
Go-To Shoes – whether they are high top sneakers, black high heels, embellished sandals or glitzy flats, your go-to shoes should represent your personality & the outfits you like to wear
What do you consider to be personal style staples? Share with us in the comments!
The past couple weeks we’ve given ideas and tips about costumes to make this Halloween absolutely boo-tiful, but today we want to talk about some costume ideas for you and your friendz! Halloween is such a fun time of the year, why not make it even more fun and coordinate outfits? Cloe, Yasmin, Sasha and I were hanging one day and exchanging ideas about group costumes. Here are a few of my favorite suggestions that the girlz had –
Cloe thought it’d be super fun if we all dressed up as some of the U.S Women’s soccer team players. Those ladies are super fierce and confident! They even won the gold medal this year at the Olympics in London. Talk about super stars! The costume would be really easy to create. All a gal needs is some black or blue athletic shorts, a soccer jersey shirt, some knee high socks, and athletic shoes. Finish off the look by carrying around a soccer ball. Get in the spirit and wear red, white and blue so everyone knows who you are! Cloe called dibs on Alex Morgan. Which player would you be?
Jade got all science on us Bratz and said we should be mad scientists. LOL! The outfits (as Kool Kat told us) would be a cinch to create and we’re guaranteed to be the koolest science girlz on the block! Start the costume out with your everyday clothes, add a white lab coat, and carry around some beakers filled with colored water (use food coloring). Next, pull up your hair in a ponytail but try to make it as messy as you can. That’s how you get the “mad” part of the scientist.
Sasha was creative with her idea and suggested we all be a swarm of busy bees. Get it? It’s because Sasha is a busy bee! There are plenty of bee costumes at stores to buy, or you can make your own from home. Grab a yellow shirt and stripe it with black electrical tape to create the bees’ body. You can do the same with the shorts, or just wear a pair of black shorts. Wings and antennas are the final touch and your swarm is ready to hit the streets in search of honey candy!
What would you and your friends dress up as? Share your ideas with us in the comments!
Hi there, boo-z! There are all sorts of glam-ific fun in store this Halloween here at the Bratz house, but some of our friends are still having trouble deciding what to dress up as. With so many options out there to choose from, it’s no wonder our Bratzies can’t decide!
Last week we talked about how to create your very own Bratzillaz costume, so now we are going to help out with tips on how to create a Bratz Style Starz. Our style star look is super pop glam and all about having fun. We know if anyone can be a style star best it’s our Bratzies!
Here’s how to create your very own Bratz Style Starz costume in 5 easy steps –
Pick your Star: choose your Bratz Style Starz girl or you can be a combo of all of us!
Style it up: Take a look in your closet for the funkiest, brightest and fun clothes. The bolder, the better. Think Hollywood glam like Selena Gomez, Bella Thorne and Katy Perry. Remember to mix and match styles, patterns and fabrics! Extra tip – ask mom, sister(s) and / or friends to make a visit to their closets for extra options to choose from
Always Accessorize: grab some super trendy sunglasses, shoes (like your princess pouf sandals, if you have them) and plenty of bracelets to complete your glam look.
‘Do your Hair: ask for some help curling the hair or ask if anyone has a fun wig to borrow. The bigger the hair, the better!
Mic-up: Every star needs a microphone! If you don’t already have a toy (or real) microphone handy, you can make your own. Grab a tennis ball and the cardboard from a used paper towel roll and tape them together. Next, wrap it all up black (or any color) tissue paper.
Now you Starz are camera-ready for Glam-oween! For extra star fun, be sure to download the Bratz Style Starz app for the iPhone and iPad. You can document your rockin’ style and snap photos using the Bratz Cam, sing the night away along with us in karaoke, OR even create your very own songs. Go ahead Starz, sing your heart out!
Wishing all our friendz a very stylin’, safe and HAPPY GLAM-oween
Halloween is one of the Bratz’ favorite holidays of the year! What other holiday out there encourages us to get dressed up in fun, funky costumes and makeup?
Word on the street is gals everywhere want to dress up as the Bratzillaz – Cloetta Spelleta, Yasmina Clairvoya, Sashabella Paws, Jade J’Adore and Meygana Broomstix. There’s a quick and easy way for Bratzies to create their own Bratzillaz style with items from around the house. We’re ready for glam to get wicked and you can be too!
Here are 5 easy tips to make your own Bratzillaz costume:
Pick a Bratzillaz girl - (red for Jade J’adore or hot pink for Cloetta Spelletta, or whatevs)
Style the outfit – grab clothes from your own closet & get creative with the chosen color (the funkier, the better!)
Make a cape – with a bed sheet or a piece fabric (be sure to use the color you picked)
Borrow or Create a witch hat –using 2 pieces of cardboard paper (take one sheet & tape together to make a cone, and then cut the other piece into a circle. Wrap both pieces with colored fabric & secure together with glue or tape to make a hat)
Hiya friends! With the school year well under way and tons of holidays quickly approaching, we thought we should talk about the importance of taking care of your mind, body & spirit. Sometimes life gets busy and the first person that gets neglected is the one we should pay the most attention to – ourselves!
Always remember a balanced life is a healthy life, so take charge and take care of yourself. Here are 5 tips that we try to keep in the back of our minds all year round!
Get plenty of Sleep –Bratzies need at least 8 hours of beauty sleep a night
Drink lots of Water – be sure to stay hydrated
Be Active – make an effort to do something physical for at least 20 minutes per day. Try swimming, yoga, running, pilates, stretching, hiking or even a walk around the neighborhood.
Eat Right –eat a day’s worth of fruits & veggies and avoid all that candy. It’s like Mom always said – “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!”
Treat Yourself – whether it’s sitting with family or friends, watching a good movie or reading a book, do something you enjoy when there is free time.
What are some ways that you keep a balanced and healthy life? Tell us in the comments below!
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!
Hi there, Bratzies! It’s Cloe and I’m hereto dish about Fall Beauty trends that I’m totally into this season. With so many trends out right now it was hard to choose, but I narrowed it down to my top 2. What do you think is the best Fall Beauty Trend right now?
Trend 1: The Cat-Eye
I talked about the cat-eye in post a few months back & I am so excited to see that it was a hit on the runways this year. This beauty look always comes in-and-out of fashion and this year it is SO IN! I love the trend because it looks awesome on my eyes and it’s perfect for the nights I want to get glammed up. To get this look take eye pencil or powder eyeliner…depending on eye, hair & skin color you can use different shades of black, brown, gray or even blue. First, lightly outline the eye on the top and bottom lid. Next, extend a line of color on the outer corner of you eye, but be careful not to extend the line too long. Voila, you completed the cat-eye! Now bat those lashes because you look great!
Trend 2: Nude Lips
Nude lips have been totally trendy for some time now and I’m hoping it never goes away. As a total sports junkie sometimes I don’t have time to get all dolled up after a soccer game, so I like being able to throw on some chapstick or clear gloss and call it a day! Plus, nude lips goes from day to night and looks good on every gal. Grab your favorite flavored chapstick or gloss, swipe it across the lips and showoff that beautiful smile!
As always Bratzies, remember to ask your parents for permission before trying any of these makeup trends.
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!
