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!

Winter Break Fun

Hi y’all!

Are you having a super fun Holiday break from work and school?

We are! 

At first, Jade was a little bummed because it is WAY too cold to go outside. But then Yasmin suggested we all hang out around the fire and read our awesome interactive comic books!  Sasha and I think Yas recommended reading because the My Passion comic book is all about her being the most epically awesome DJ of all time! Yasmin insists she thought of the idea simply because she loves to read.

Either way, it’s still been super fun! We make, like, buckets of hot cocoa, start a fire, turn on some fresh tunes and take turns using my tablet. The games in the interactive comic are so rad to play! Sasha rocked an amazing beat in the DJ game. And Jade styled my hair so hilariously in the My Stylez comic book, that we were rolling on the floor laughing for, like, 20 minutes!

Have you read and played our fab interactive comics yet? You can find them right here, on our website, under GAMES.

Let us know your fave part!

Holiday Cards

Yo yo yo, Bratzos!

‘Tis the season for corny Holiday Cards.  You know what I’m talking about, the ones with pictures of you and your family on the front.  The whole ordeal has so much drama-rama! Parents dragging you to the mall, putting you and your siblings in matching sweaters, and having to smile in front of a cheesy backdrop. All this drama, just so your parents can send that photograph Christmas card to all your friends and family, letting them know what kind of grades you got in school this year. (Shudder!)

Not to be a Grinch, but those photo cards are a big Bah Humbug!

This year, the  Bratz and I are making our own Holiday cards! We think you should, too!!

Here’s how to do it the Bratzie way:

Get your group of girls together and raid each other’s closets for the most fabulous or outrageous outfits imagineable! Don’t be afraid to get silly! Wigs! Shoulder pads! Your mom’s ratty old slippers from the 1980s!

Dress up in all the hilarious mix ‘n match styles and then ask your parents or older siblings to take awesome group photos of you with your besties!

Next, download the FREE Bratz Cam App.  You can get to it here:

http://www.bratz.com/en-us/section/games

This will let you add fabulous fierceness to your photos by enhancing them with our awesome filters, borders and stickers!

Last, take the final photo and show it to your parents. When they go to print their holiday cards, ask them to print you 20 of your own holiday cards with your fab photo on the front for you to hand out to your friends at school!

Last, decorate your locker or cubby hole with the fab holiday card so you can remember that fun day with your friends all year long!

XOXO

Take the Gratitude Challenge

Whatz the hapz, Bratz?!

Are you familiar with the Gratitude Challenge?

The Gratitude Challenge is a 21-day challenge that asks participants to state one thing they are grateful for each day. Most people do the Gratitude Challenge in November as a countdown to Thanksgiving.

The rad peeps behind the Gratitude Challenge insist that if you acknowledge and state aloud your gratefulness for all the blessings in your life, you will start to see the world as a totally rad place. You will see the silver linings instead of the gray clouds.

I’m all about staying positive, and I am always up for a challenge! So, this year I thought I would get down with grateful!

I’m on day 15 of the Gratitude Challenge.  Here’s what I have so far:

Jade’s Epic List of All Things I’m Grateful For:

  1. My BBFs! My besties are everything!
  2. High heels
  3. Flea markets
  4. All things D.I.Y.
  5. Goggles. Perfect for settin’ up science experiments with style!
  6. Sushi
  7. Funky nail polish colors
  8. The super rad new magnetic nail polish that uses a magnet to make wavy designs! I HEART when science and fashion collide!
  9. Foreign films and indie flicks
  10. People who believe in me and inspire me to chase after all of my passions
  11. Books! I dig reading. Comic books count, too, right?
  12. The ocean! I love to surf on the sand and skate on the boardwalk
  13. Travel – I’ve been able to go to so many rad places. Um, hello, Paris!!
  14. Facing fears. Anytime I’ve been afraid, I’ve pushed past the fear and ended up with amazing results.
  15. Hmm…

Any ideas on what else I should add to my Gratitude List? Would you take the Gratitude Challenge? What would you have on your list?

xoxo

NaNoWriMO!!

Namaste, Bratzies,

I am so happy. November is one of my most favorite months out of the year. Can you guess why?

 

NaNoWriMo!!

Do you Bratzies know about NaNoWriMo?

NaNoWriMo stands for NAtional NOvel WRIting MOnth! For the month of November, people from all around the world commit to completing the first draft of their novel. Or at least, to complete the first 50,000 words of it! It’s sooooo cool! Everyone who participates in NaNoWriMo instantly finds a community of writers!

There is a website where you can sign in, upload your pages and share your daily word count. But, you don’t have to sign up online to participate! I didn’t! Instead, I just told my BBFs all about it, and they are doing it with me!

Once a week we get together and tell each other about our stories. We also give each other ideas, and, most importantly, lots of encouragement!! Writing is hard. Hugs, kind words and constructive criticism are a must!!

Trying to write 50,000 words in one month is no joke! But participating in NaNoWriMo, and giving your dream of being a novelist a real shot, is totally the ZENsible thing to do!

I’m writing a fantasy book! What are you Bratzies writing about? Give me the summary of your story below! I bet it’s OM-mazing!

Ooh, and if you need some reading inspiration, check out my brand new comic book, all about me pursuing my passions!

Find it under the GAMES section on our website!

Adventures of Cranky Cat, Part 2

Last Week in the Adventures of the Action Heroez:

Without their keynote speaker, Cranky Cat, to give out diplomas, the P.F.I. students are once again at risk of not graduating!!

Hiding in her top-secret penthouse lair, Evilla tries desperately to entertain Cranky Cat.

“Look, I made you a ball out of thread I stole from those fashion twits. Don’t you just love it?”
“Meh-eow.”
“You’re hoping those Action Heroez will save you. Admit it.”
“Meh-eow.”

The Action Heroez try desperately to find Cranky Cat. Cloe speed dashes around Passionview. Yasmin twirls through tunnels. Shira flies high over the city and then…

 

 

 

Shira spots Cranky Cat!! He is perched crankily on the balcony of what must be Evilla’s secret lair!!

Shira calls for the other Action Heroez to help!

“Come, Cranky Cat. Don’t you want to be rescued?” – Shira
“Meh-eow.”
“Yas, use your Super Twirl to distract him, while I speed dash in and grab Cranky Cat.” – Cloe
Yasmin spins but she goes TOO FAST!!

 

 

 

OH NO!! DISASTER!!
The wind from Yasmin’s twirl blows Cranky Cat OFF THE BALCONY and into the MOAT BELOW!!!

“I’ll save him!” cries Shira. She flies down and dives into the moat to rescue Cranky Cat.

Back at the P.F.I. Graduation Ceremony, Cranky Cat was able to give his (wet) speech and saved graduation!

And to thank the Action Heroez for saving him, Cranky Cat took the microphone and gave a very appreciative and enthusiastic,

“Meh-eow.”

THE END

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???
