Thoughts about Friends

It’s total Bratz style to have lots of great people in our life (in addition to our amazing families!). Friends are a big part of our childhood memories, our school days and summer fun. They make us laugh, smile, and sometimes even make us cry. This is all part of what goes into being friends with someone and we think having a friend or two is really awesome.

Today all the Bratz got together to write this blog post as friends. We all love each other (and you, Bratzie) so much that we thought it was time to talk about what goes into being a friend.

First, we think a good friend is always there to support others. With positive energy and words of encouragement, friends are there to lift your spirits when times get tough. Sometimes a friend has to give advice or say things that their friends may not want to hear, but it is important to always tell the truth in a loving way. A friend never wants to hurt another person on purpose.

We also think a friend always looks out for bad fashion! Jade would never let Cloe leave the house in an outfit that’s not so stylish. Sometimes we consider ourselves the Fashion Police for each other. LOL! But again, we always say it in a nice way.

Most importantly, we’re all friends because we like each other and want to create fun times and memories. We all have common interests (like Cloe & Jade with cheerleading) and share a love for fashion. It’s always a good time hanging with the besties and all of us make an effort to keep our friendships strong. It’s all about trying! Try to be a good friend and you will be one!

There are many things that go into being a good friend. This is a topic we’d like to talk more about as time goes on. Would you Bratzies be interested in reading more posts about friendship?

Bratz’ Tips for a Balanced Life

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!

  1. Get plenty of Sleep –Bratzies need at least 8 hours of beauty sleep a night
  2. Drink lots of Water – be sure to stay hydrated
  3. 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.
  4. 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!”
  5. 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.
