It’s All About You!

Yo Yo Yo Bratzos!

All the world’s a stage and YOU are the lead role in your own production.

That’s right. The drama mama! The queen bee! The drama queen!

That’s why this week we want to hear from you!! Tell us, what do you want to talk about? What interests you? What worries you? What would you like to see us write blogs about? And what topics are you totally over. Like, seriously over.

Should we talk boyz? Celebrities? Every day hometown heroes? Fashion? About our doll line and new products? Music? Movies? Webshows? It can be anything! There are no wrong answers!

What are your faves? What are your hates?

It’s a new year, and in 2014 we want to focus on our Bratzies!!

Can’t wait to hear from ya!

Stick to your Resolutions!

Hi y’all!

Now that New Year’s Eve is over, and we’ve drank all the sparkling cider and taken our sparkling cocktail dresses to the cleaners, it’s totes hard to stay committed to those New Year’s Resolutions!
Here are a few hip n’ handy tips to help you stay committed to your 2014 commitment.

1- Make a resolution! You gotta make one, to make it happen! It’s like the lottery always says, you gotta play to win!

2- (This one’s my fave.) Look in the mirror and repeat your goal out loud over and over for a full minute– then fix your hair, but not until the minute is over!

3- Write your goal down on a bunch of pieces of paper and post them places you will see. I like to write my resolutions on my pink sticky note pad in big blue bubble letters!
4- Make it possible to reach your goals. If you decided to run a half marathon this year, don’t pick one happening in March. Choose a marathon in October so you can give yourself plenty of time to practice and prepare your body for the run. Then sign up for smaller runs, like a 5k in March, and a 10k in June, to keep yourself motivated. Same fab rule applies to any of your goals!
5- Find ways to make it fun! Whether it is getting straight A’s or finally asking out that cute boy in Science class, figure out how to make the adventure crazy fun! Maybe you and your girls can go out for hot cocoa right after a fierce study session. Or before asking out your crush, you can dive in to an amaze shopping spree! So fun!
Good luck, Bratzies! Keep me updated!

Candy Fashion!

Yo yo yo Bratzos!!

Sasha here! I had a howlin’ Halloween!

My favorite part of Trick or Treating is that it’s a total drama-rama smorgasbord! And I’m not talking about all the yummy candy. Nor am I referring to the cool costumes. I mean, Halloween rocks because it gives you a door-to-door buffet line of fun fashion possibilities!

Don’t follow what I’m saying?

Here’s a picture to help you get the picture!

Halloween hooks me up with all the candy (and candy wrappers!) I need to make sweet jewelry and purses! And you can make these confectionary fashion statements, too. It’s totes easy peasy.

Here is a fabtastic blog I found on making Bratztastic bracelets:

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-A-Bracelet-Out-Of-Candy-Wrappers/

If chunky jewelry isn’t really your thing and your looking for a dramatic fashion statement, read this great blog on making boss bags from candy wrappers:

http://iwannanewbag.blogspot.com/2007/04/purses-made-from-candy-wrappers-etc.html

Everyone will be asking you where you got the look!

Remember, these fashion statements take some time to make, so you don’t have to gorge on all your candy at once! Just chew as you go! Create as you salivate! It’s too fab!!

Do you have any suggestions on any other fab fashions you can make from your Halloween swag?

Love ya lots!

XOXO

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!!

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???

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!

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.

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!!!
