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:

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!

DIY Holiday Gift Crowns

Namaste, Bratzies

Are you in need of some OM-mazing gift ideas for your BBFs? I’m making my besties flower crowns! It’s super easy, cheap and beyond fab. Giving D.I.Y. holidays gifts is the ZENsible thing to do!

Ask a parent for help.

Here’s what you need:

- Headband

- Silk flowers (We like getting silk mistletoe for the season, but you can use any type of flower you like!)

- Glue (A hot glue gun works best if you can get your parents to help!)

Now all you need to do is…:

Glue the flowers on to the headband! Voila! The look, feel and vibe is totally unique to you! I’m sure the end result will be OM-mazing!

To get more into the season, you can use dried flowers to decorate barrettes!

Simply glue dried baby’s breath and pussy willows to the tops of barrettes! For added awesome, keep the branches attached. It will enhance the ethereal look.

So fab for the holidays!

Let me know how is goes!

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?

Halloween Goes Glam

What’z the hapz, Bratz?!

Jade here!! And I am totally geeking out because Haloween is almost here. It is, like, the most radtacular holiday ever!! Can you Bratzies guess what my favorite part is: dressing up!

This year is all about bringing the “glam” to the “quirky kool.” It’s super easy to do! Just think of whatever it spooky creature you want to be for Halloween and then glam-i-fy it!

Picture this:

Glam Monster-

A terrifying monster rockin’ a rad neon green feather boa and a fierce set of heels! Just because you were born in a swamp doesn’t mean you can’t have style!

Glam Witch-

A spooky witch with tinsel extensions, a mirrored belt and dazzling faux-diamonds. You won’t know if people are more spellbound by your wicked potions or by your signature fashion statement.

Glam Zombie-

A disgusting zombie who offsets her craving for brains with a crimson dress and ruby slippers. Why be the “walking” undead when you can be the “strutting” undead?

See? Glam-i-fying your costume is totally fun and totally easy!! There are a ton of rad combos you can create that I haven’t even thought of!!

The other kickin’ Halloween trend this year is doing the total opposite. Start glam and add a tad of gross!

Start off your look as a seriously gorge princess, fairy or Prom Queen… then add vampire teeth!

The best part about these mix ’n’ match costumes is that they are totally D.I.Y.! You can create a ton of looks from what you already have in your closets!

Tell me what you are going to be for Halloween!! I know whatever you pick with be totally krazy kool!!

LAST COMIC BOOK INSTALLMENT – PASSIONVIEW OLYMPICS

Our Heroez have tried EVERYTHING to relight the Olympic Torch: lighters, blow torches, birthday candles. But nothing is working!!

Is this the end for the Passionview Olympics?

Once again, all the people of Passionview came together to hold the Olympic Torch.

 

 

“The Olympics are all about uniting the land,” said Shira. “Once we’ve come together, I’m sure the flame will reignite!”

After all the people of Passionview held the smoldering torch, Yasmin used her Super Twirl to kick up sparks and reignite the torch. But it didn’t work!!

 “Oh no!” said Yasmin. “Something is wrong! The Olympic Torch still won’t catch fire!”

Cloe said:

Evilla was ELATED to found out the city of Passionview needed her and came as quickly as she could.

“I’m here. I’m here. Do not fret, citizens. I, Evilla Vanderbelt, will hold the Olympic Torch and save the Passionview Olympics. Bring out the balloons! Start the parade!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

“OK,” said Yasmin. “I hope this works!”

Yasmin, once again, used her Super Twirl. Sparks flew through the air! Immediately, the Olympic Torch went up in flames!

The people of Passionview rejoiced. As a community, along with Evilla, they carried the flame to the Passionview Arena and lit the Official Olympic Cauldron for the games to begin!

THE END

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

#UnleashYourSummer Bucket List Update

Hey y’all,

Cloe here! And I just wanted to give a super shout-out to all of my Bratzies who have helped us plan our #SummerBucketList. So far it has been an epic success!! Yay! Go team!!

As y’all probably already know, we want YOU, our totes amazing Bratzies, to #UnleashYourSummer! This means it is time to set sail on a new adventure. Literally, if you can!

Spread your arms, open your mind and commit to making each and every day of your summer totally and completely epic!! We want you to laugh hard! Play hard! And think hard about what Fabtabulous new thing you can try each day. Use your gift of imagination and fabrication to explore worlds, stories and ideas. Get off the couch! Get off the computer (once you’ve finished reading this blog of course, lol)!! Go outside and start doing! The sun is shining and the world is yours. This summer can be the greatest adventure of your life!! Yay you!!

Jade suggested that we write down what totally epic thing we want to try each day of the summer. By writing down our plans, we committed to sticking to the Summer Bucket List. And so far, her plan has worked perfectly.  Each day we cross something new off the Summer Bucket List. It’s been a total blast! We have done so many fabtastic things already and summer has just begun!!

The first week alone was more epic than any summer I’ve ever had before!!

We kicked off our summer of awesome by white water rafting. That was totes my idea. The girlz were a bit scared, but they all did swimmingly! Especially Yasmin, who literally fell in the water and had to swim back to our raft! She said falling in was her fave part of the whole trip! LOL!  Then we went rock climbing, to which Sasha wore stilettos and broke a heel! We ended the week with a cray-cray paint party! I was bummin about getting my clothes dirty, but splashing each other with paint turned out to be fabtastically fun! That’s the best part when you #UnleashYourSummer! You are forced to try new things, and sometimes the things you think you will hate become you fab-solute new faves!!

But unleashing your summer is not all about fun! To have a truly epic summer, you should give back, too! We have helped out at a soup kitchen and ran a lemonade stand, donating the proceeds to charity! And wanna know the truth? Even though we have gone surfing, tried yoga in the park, went on a photo shoot safari, written songs and SOOOOO much more, I think I had the mostestestest fun I had, was when we were helping others!

Are you totally inspired yet?? Are YOU going to #UNLEASHYOURSUMMER?? Tell me all the fabulous new things you put on your Summer Bucket List. If we think they said super fabulous, we will add them to our own!!

Cheers to the most epic summer ever!!

XOXO

Happy Memorial Day!!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, my bestie HOBles!!

If you’re like me, you love this fabulous 3-day weekend for the barbeques, fireworks and get-togethers, but we should totally remember that the real meaning of this holiday deserves our love, too!

Memorial Day is all about celebrating those AH-MAZ-ING men and women who served in our military. This weekend, I wanted to give you Bratzies something fierce to think about while catchin’ rays poolside, so I decided to honor Memorial Day by highlighting a total military Real Bratz: General Ann E. Dunwoody.

General Dunwoody is the first woman in U.S. military history to achieve a 4-star officer rank!! When she earned her fourth star, General Dunwoody became one of the most senior commanders in the armed services, a status only held by men in America for centuries.

What makes this story even more sweet is that this Real Bratz isn’t the only fab female warrior in her family! The Dunwoody women are breaking barriers all over the world! General Ann E. Dunwoody’s sister, Susan Schoeck was only the third woman in the Army to become a fighter pilot! Way to go, Susan!! And General Dunwoody’s niece, Jennifer Schoeck is a U.S. Air Force Fighter Pilot! I’m OB-to-the-SESSED with these amazing women. They are totally game-changers and totally fabnomenal!

General Dunwoody accredits her awesome family for raising her to be the trailblazing groundbreaking rock star that she is! “I grew up in a family that didn’t know what glass ceilings were,” Dunwoody says.

She also pays tribute to all the fabulous that came before her. “I recognize that with this selection (to become the first woman to achieve 4-star officer rank), some will view me as a trailblazer, but it’s important that we remember the generations of women, whose dedication, commitment and quality of service helped open the doors of opportunity for us today.”

We HEART you General Ann E. Dunwoody! We hope your Memorial Day is as fabtastic as you are!!

XOXO
