In Like a Lion

I’m sooooooooo excited Spring is almost here! 

March begins tomorrow and everyone knows March comes in like a lion, but leaves like a lamb. And you know what that means! Skirts! Shorts! Dresses! Strappy heels! Peep-toe pumps! The epic return to half of my wardrobe!!!

I have missed my clothes so much! Is it just me, or does it get totally tiresome wearing the same looks week after week?

But it’s not just the return to fabulous fashions that I’m excited about. I’m ready to hang around outside again! Play soccer! Pick wildflowers! Make wishes on dandelions! Just to run and breathe in the sweet scented air will be so refreshing!

I’m getting jazzed just thinking about it!

What part of Spring are YOU most excited for??

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!

XOXO

 

Sayonara #UnleashYourSummer

Hey y’all!

I cannot believe summer break is almost over and school’s about to start back up! Cah-to-the-razy! Crazy! This summer, the Bratz and I were on a mission to have the most EPIC SUMMER OF ALL TIME! I don’t know about y’all, but we totes met our goal! Go team!!

You fabulously awesome Bratzies gave us a TON of ideas for our #UnleashYourSummer Bucket List. We didn’t hit ALL of them, but there is always next summer!! T.B.H., we did soooooo much, I don’t know how we could have fit in anything else!! We went hang gliding, white water rafting, volunteered at charities, wrote poetry, tried new foods, talked to our crushes, created our own water park and so much more! We pushed the limits, faced our fears and had an AH-MAZ-ING time doing it!!

I’m super glad that we Bratz decided to do a combined Summer Bucket List. By having each one of us add things to the Bucket List, we all had to try something that scared us a little. We all had to go out of our comfort zone just a bit. Obvs, a friend would never make you do anything you didn’t want to do or didn’t feel comfortable doing. That’s not what a shared Summer Bucket List is about. It’s about helping your friends, lending a hand, and giving your BBFs a gentle nudge to challenge themselves.  Friends encouraging each other to grow is totes the only true way to #UnleashYourSummer!!

I think the FAB-solute bestestest thing that came out of challenging each other with our Summer Bucket List was how tight we became! Jade, Sasha, Yasmin and I were already besties, but now that we have experienced all these cool new things together, we are closer than ever!

Have any of you Bratzies experienced that? What crazy thing did you and your BBF do to become super tight? Did you and your besties do anything ridiculously awesome this summer?

Love you all!

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!!!

XoXo

 

Sasha’s Prom Night Survival Kit

Yo, Bratzies!!

I am so totally jazzed! It’s my fave time of year: PROM SEASON!!! Going to Prom is a total dream come true, but it can turn into a total nightmare if you’re not prepared!!

Introducing Sasha’s Prom Night Survival Kit. Throw these diva-licious items into your clutch for a surefire fab night of fun and friends!!

Sasha’s Prom Night Survival Kit:

FOLD-UP FLATS: You Bratzies know how much I love my fierce heels, but it’s hard to rock that look and keep pace with a full night of dancing! Even a diva like me won’t pass up on fun for the sake of fashion. Luckily, we don’t have to! You can buy totally adorable flats that fold up to fit into any purse. Bring these along to ensure your feet don’t get tired before you do!

BLOT PADS: Girls, I know you spent a ton of time perfecting your prom make-up. Last thing you want to do is have it smudge and smear while wiping perspiration from your brow! Save the flawless look you created by bringing along some blot pads. You can blot away the sweat without any cosmetic fret.

BOBBY PINS: Let’s be honest, by the end of Prom, your hair will be a mess. Keep your lovely locks in presentable order – at least until you take your Prom photos! – by stashing away some extra bobby pins.

GUM/BREATH MINTS: You will spend the night trying to chat with your BBFs by screaming over the band or DJ. Make sure your friends are happy to get up close and personal by keeping mints handy. Double bonus: your breath will be fresh when talking to boyz!!

STRING: When you’re tired of wearing your corsage or flower crown, a little bit of string can go a long way to preserve your Prom memories! How you ask? Use that string to hang your fab Prom flower pieces upside down and dry them! Remember to do this as soon as you take off the floral pieces. A wilted flower is way harder to dry and preserve!

CASH AND I.D.: Even if you don’t plan on going anywhere after the dance it’s way smart to stash some cash and your I.D.  If you’re anything like this Drama Queen, you will be totally famished and dying to get some grub before heading home. Bringing your wallet ensures you won’t miss out on any post-Prom fun, or get stuck eating mom’s meatless meatloaf leftovers as your midnight snack.

EVER PURSE: 27-year-old Real Bratz Liz Salcedo has come to our Prom aid with a promtastic new clutch! Her EverPurse (https://everpurse.com/) has a built in phone charger!! Now you can promenade without worrying about losing tabs with your besties because of a low battery life or tripping over silly charger wires while trying to boogie down with your BBFs!! Plus, the clutches are totally adorbs!

And lastly, PHONE PLAYLIST: Make a totally rockin’ Prom Playlist on your phone. Not only can the fun jams help get you pumped while prepping for Prom, they can keep the fab energy going while hangin’ with your besties after the dance.

BONUS TIPS:

Drink plenty of water. Perfect the “selfie.” And, MOST IMPORTANTLY, do not be afraid to dance like the rock stars I know you are! Dance like no one is looking! Dance like everyone is looking!! Just dance!!

This is YOUR time. YOUR year. YOUR memory for the rest of YOUR life. Love your friends. Love yourself. And I know you will have a totally fabtastic evening.

I can’t wait to hear all about your totally amazing Proms!!

XOXO,
Sasha

P.S. If you’re NOT going to Prom this year, consider throwing an ANTI-PROM or DUCT TAPE PROM!!! Make your DIY prom into anything you want it to be!! It’s a totally fun way to spend a night with your BBFs!!

Representin’ Advanced Style

Yo Bratzies, it’s your queen, Sasha!

I keep hearing pledging members of the House of Bratz asking me how to dress like REAL BRATZ.    My answer is simple:

DRESS LIKE YOU!!!

Clothes, make-up and hairstyles are just a fun way to show the world who you are on the inside. They are a fabtabulous way to express yourself. If you’re a naturalist on the inside, there’s no need to wear make-up on the outside. If you have a flare for the dramatic, like yours truly, rock out in electric colors and ask your parents if you can put streaks in your hair!

The trick to being a Real Bratz is to always be true to you. There is no need to look or dress like anyone else. Who you are is totes FAB enough!!

The super awesome thing about being a Real Bratz is that ANYONE can become one, at any age!!

Real Bratz super star, Ari Seth Cohen, is on a mission to celebrate and recognize the older Real Bratz population. He finds grandmas on the streets of NYC who exude a true passion for fashion! These older ladies have fierce fashion sense! Whether their clothes are DIY, funky kool, or sleek and chic, they show the world that they are true passionistas. Solid proof that age just refines your fab stylin’s.

Check out Ari’s rad blog. He shows a ton of pics of these Advanced NYC style icons!!

http://advancedstyle.blogspot.com/

I plan on ALWAYS rockin’ my most fabtastic looks! Even when I’m 100!!  Do you plan on being fashionably TRUE TO YOU well into your golden years?  Why wait? Why not start right now?!

Keep stylin’ and smilin’
 

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!!!

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!

 

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!

Write on!
