Healthy Summer Snacks

Hey dolls! Jade here with some healthy summer snack ideas to keep you fueled up for summer fun!

Healthy eats give me energy for one of my fave activities--SHOPPING!

1)   Did you know fruit gets an extra splash of flavor with a little bit of lemon or lime juice and a sprinkle of salt? If you’re feeling feisty, put a shake of chili powder on top. You’ll find that the sweet fruit flavor really pops! My favorite is mango with lime and salt – it’s totally tropical and delicious! You can also do this with vegetables like cucumbers or tomatoes.

2)   If you want something a little more filling, try a whole wheat English muffin with some peanut butter on top. Slice a banana and top the peanut butter with a few banana slices. This snack is super tasty, and packed with protein and healthy sugar from fruit, as well as whole grains to keep you full. Try it after a workout for the ultimate yummy and healthy treat!

3)   If you’re craving something sweet, try sticking one chocolate chip right side up into a raspberry! These adorable and delicious berries are perfect for a simple, sweet snack, and everyone will rave about them if you serve them at a party. I think I’ll make these for our next Bratz sleepover!

What are your favorite healthy snacks?

 

Bratz Fragrance Tutorial

Hey Lovelies! What’s your go-to summer scent? I am totally obsessed with fruity, citrusy mists — they’re perfect for summer! Yasmin loves floral scents because she says they remind her of spring blossoms and butterflies. Sasha is always sporting the sweet scent of vanilla and coconuts, and Jade is all about the clean, fresh scents that remind her of the ocean!

Ever wonder what the difference is between body spray and perfume? Here is a quick tutorial!

Body Spray (aka body mist or body splash) is great for school because its sweet scents are subtle but refreshing! You’ll smell as sweet as can be without bothering your classmates with strong, overbearing scents.

Eau de colognes and eau de toilettes have a greater concentration of scents than body spray but less than perfume. Their scent will linger longer than your average body spray but won’t be too intense.

Eau de parfum and perfume have the greatest concentration of scents per bottle. They last longer and shouldn’t be applied heavily. Spray just a little on your wrists and neck and you are good to go all day!

Tell me what your favorite scent of the season is and why!

Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!

Hey Lovelies – Cloe here! Want to know a secret? Some mornings I have fashion crises, too!  This morning I woke up and I couldn’t find a thing to wear in my closet FULL of clothes – nothing seemed to look right! Don’t you hate it when that happens? So I decided to first pick a pair of stylin’ shoes and then build my outfit around them. Pretty shoes somehow always make me feel better! Anyway, I slipped on my newest, and most rockin’, pair of heels and suddenly I felt like everything I wore looked super chic and glamorous. Check them out, aren’t they just fab?!?

This got me thinking, shoes are a very important essential in every girl’s closet so I’m going to share with you this spring/summer’s hottest shoe trends – with these five pairs you’re set for summer!

  • Ballet Flats are super cute and comfortable to wear out during the day when you’re having lunch with friends, shopping at the mall or running errands.
  • Fun and easy to wear tennis shoes in cool colors and designs are totally in this season. If you’re going to be doing a lot of walking these are definitely the shoes to choose.
  • Chunky espadrilles are a classic spring shoe. Wear them with a pretty floral sundress for a perfect match.
  • Bejeweled gladiator sandals are a great alternative for the average pair of flip-flops. They’re just as easy to wear but they come in super stylin’ varieties that you can dress up or down – and show off your latest pedicure!
  • Going out for a fancy occasion? Wear dark denim and pick up a pair of vampy heels to add a little glam but still keep a chic casual feel to your outfit.

What does your favorite pair of springtime shoes look like?

Prom Fashion Trends

It’s officially prom season, Bratzies! You know I’m all about trend setting and making a fashion statement, so this year I’m kicking it up to a whole new level with my light up dress! What better way to standout in a crowd than to light up the room, right?!

But just because I’ve got my look all picked out, doesn’t mean I haven’t been keeping my

Bratz Funk n Glow Jade

eye on the upcoming prom trends for you lovelies. Here are the top three fashion statements to look forward to this prom season:

Short feathered skirts are totally hot right now. Dresses with feathers look fun, fashionable and fierce!

Sequins! You can never have too much glitz! Just remember to keep the accessories to a minimum when wearing a fully blinged out dress.

Having trouble deciding on a short dress or long dress? The high-low hemline is so in right now! Show some leg in the front and keep it long and glam in the back. Some high-low hemline dresses even come with a fun pattern on the inside!

Tell me all about your prom fashion picks!

Bratz Beauty How To: Cat-Eye Look

Hello lovelies! It’s Meygan here to teach you how to create the purr-fect Cat-Eye look! This is a classic make-up style that anyone can pull off with practice and good eyeliner. To get this glamourous look, you’ll need your favorite liquid eyeliner and an eyeliner brush with a fine-tip point.

1) Start by drawing a thin line on the inner part of your upper eyelid. Keep it very close to the lash line.

2)Go back to the outer eyelid and thicken the line just above the line you just drew. The line should be thin at the inner eye and slowly thicken as you get to the outer eyelid.

3) Then add a winged end—like a small check mark! Don’t let the winged end extend further than the length of your eyebrow—unless you’re going for a more dramatic look!

Be sure to rest your elbow on a surface, like the counter, to keep your hand steady. If you mess up a little, use some eye moisturizer or make-up remover to erase and start again. It takes lots of practice to get the hang of it, so just relax and have fun with it!

How do you feel about Cat Eyes? What celebs can you think of that always rock this look? We think Taylor Swift has it down!

Luv,

 

Lip-Wear Lowdown

Hey Bratz fanz, Cloe here to give you a lesson in luscious lip-wear! Do you know the difference between lip-gloss, lipstick, lip stain and lip balm? There are so many options for the perfect pout that it can get confusing. I’m here to help you understand it all! Let’s begin!

Jade's perfectly pink, plummy pout!

Lipstick: Lipstick comes in many different colors, from shades of pink and red to nudes, corals and plums. You can go for a natural look or pick an intense shade depending on how you’re feeling. Here are my top tips for applying lipstick:

  1. Lip liner is important if you’re experimenting with dark shades like red. Pick a matching lip liner and trace over the natural line of your lips. Don’t use lip liner when applying light colors.
  2. Use a lip brush to smooth on lipstick within the natural line of your lips.
  3. Blot! Get a piece of tissue paper and blot off excess color by smacking your lips together.

I love a luscious lip gloss!

Lip gloss: I’m a total lip gloss addict! I think I have like 7 in my purse right now, lol! When you want something easy to apply with a high-shine, go for lip gloss. They come in lots of colors, they go on smooth and they leave your lips glistening! Just glide onto your lips and go!

Lip stain: Stains give a wash of color to your lips without the shine of gloss or the strong hue of lipstick. They’re super long lasting and perfect for all-day color without the worry of reapplying. They usually come in the form of a felt tip marker. My tip for applying lip stain is to draw the line of your lips first then color in the rest. So cute, so kissable! Muah!

Lip balm: These are the easiest to wear and come in lots of fun flavors! Lip balms are made to moisturize and protect lips. There are even tinted lip balms if you want to add some extra color. My favorite is cherry flavor with pink tint.

Now that you’ve got the lip-wear lowdown it’s time to try new things! If you normally go for lip balm, try lip gloss instead! If lip gloss is your go-to lip-wear then experiment with lipstick! Being a fashionista means always trying new things!

 

XOXO,
