It’s Never Too Early To Lead

Cloe here, Bratzies, and I’m super excited today to see that, with the five women inaugurated into the United States Senate this month, there are now more women serving in the Senate than have ever served before in US History. What’s even cooler is that 70% of those women are former Girl Scouts. That means these women were learning how to help their fellow man and be strong leaders when they were our age!

What I like the most about this is that it proves that it’s never too soon to start being a leader, or to reach out and help your community. I plan to start helping out by volunteering with the Special Olympics this year, and put my love for sports to a good use by empowering the athletes I will work with. Maybe someday, it’ll be ME getting sworn in to help make the United States a better place.

What have you done to help your school, community, or country? What would you like to do to help?

Talk To You Later,

 

2013 NYE Resolutions

Bratz here to talk about 2013 resolutions for 2013! This seems to be something that everybody (especially our parents) always talks about at the end of every year. The way we understand it people pick a few things they’d like to improve on, do or do without for the next year and then they try really really really hard to stick to these goals. We think making resolutions for 2013 is a great idea, so we’re going to do it too. Here are some resolutions that we’re all going to set for ourselves –

  1. Spend more time happy and less time sad
  2. Smile more to people at school
  3. See something, say something – it is NOT Ok for people to be bullied
  4. Make the effort to get better grades at school
  5. Play outside more. Be active!
  6. Always be a friend – there is no need for enemies in life
  7. Hug our moms & dads more
  8. Read one book per month (not including school required books, silly friends)
  9. Drink more water and less soda
  10. When given the choice, always be kind

Will you join us in setting goals for 2013 with NYE Resolutions? Tell us what some of your NYE Resolutions are in a comment below!

Wishing all of you a very safe and fun New Year’s Eve! Bring in the New Year with a big smile because life is beautiful…and so are you!

Happy [Almost] 2013

Fall Into Summer

A cute floral Summer dress like this can be totally Fall-worthy with just the right accessories…swap out those heels for some ankle boots, and rock a dark turtleneck underneath!

Hey there, Bratzies! Yasmin here, and I don’t know about you, but I am SO not ready to stop wearing some of the cool clothes that I bought for the Summer! Just because it’s Autumn doesn’t mean our fun in the sun outfits have to “Fall” out of our closet.

It’s all about pairing some breezy-weather items with our tanning outfits. Got a cool silk tanktop? Wear that with some cool skinny jeans, high heels, and some big jewelry.

Still want to rock that floral-print sun dress? Add some ankle boots and a black turtleneck around you to tone down the Summer attitude into Fall cool.

Still want to show your legs in some cute jean shorts? Pair it with a motorcycle jacket and a long-sleeved dark-colored top.

It’s all about taking the best of both seasons and making it timeless! What Fall fashions do YOU plan to pair with your Summer classics?

 

 

 

 

Fall Fashion Goes Flat

 

Sculpted heels are awesome, but sometimes fashion needs both feet FLAT on the ground!

Hello my Bratzies! Your Funky Fashion girl Meygan here, getting ready to head back to school in a totally trendy way! This Fall has me thinking outside the box…the shoebox, that is! While I am all about the sky-high heels, a fashionista on the go needs to give her feet and back a rest now and then, which is why I am so totally stoked about the upcoming Fall trend – flirty flat shoes!

They go well with any skirts or skinny jeans, and can be as dressy or casual as you need them to be. Plus, you can throw them on super-fast if you’re running late for class, and make the mad dash to homeroom in no time without worrying about tripping in front of any cute boys! Make your first attempt at flats a bold one…try shimmery, sparkly fabric, or open-toed with a bright toenail polish.

Remember Bratzies, fashion goes a lot farther when you’re comfortable, so make that step back into class a smooth one! What kind of flats would you wear on your first day back?

 

Mixing Up Outfits

Hi Bratzies! It’s so close to back to school time and that gets me excited because I LOVE back to school shopping! A new backpack, new shoes and awesome outfits are what gets me motivated for fall. But here’s the bad part: once the first few weeks go by and I’ve worn all my brand new outfits I get stuck in a fashion rut! So I’ve been thinking of new ways to spice up my outfit choices.

One great way to mix up your outfits is to pair a dress with a cute top! It really works wonders to your wardrobe by creating a whole new look. A short sleeve bright cardigan layered over a printed dress topped off with a nice belt comes together nicely. Try it out and let me know how many new outfits you come up with!

I mixed it up and made this dress into a whole new outfit!

 

 

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?

 

Get Up and Get Active!

Cloe here--just workin' on my fitness!

Hey Bratzies! It’s Cloe here! I just got back from an awesome morning skate session.  Sometimes I have to trade in the high heels for athletic shoes! It’s important that we take care of our bodies with proper eating and exercise if we want to stay fabulous!

It’s summer time so I try to get my daily cardio in by going to the gym or playing soccer-–I love it cuz I never lose! I like to switch it up every now and then with skateboarding. Getting involved in a sport is a great way to stay in shape and have fun. Physical activity doesn’t have to be boring! A brisk walk while chatting with friends for 30 minutes should do it or even 15-20 minutes of basketball!

There are so many fabulous activities such as dancing, hiking, horseback riding, skateboarding and fitness classes. It can get pretty hot in the summer so I’m sure the #1 option on most people’s list is the swimming pool! When you are having fun you totally forget you are working out, which is great for those who have a hard time getting the motivation! Don’t be a couch potato this summer–get up and get active!

Okay Bratzies now it’s your turn to share with us your favorite physical activity to stay fit!

Love,

 

Bratz Trendy Sunglasses Tips

Hey Bratz fans! Sasha here to tell you about a simple and inexpensive summer accessory!

When it comes to enjoying the hot summer rays every girl needs a pair of cool shades! Not only are sunglasses a great way to protect your eyes from the sun they also compliment any outfit–especially a swimsuit! On those days when you just want to rock shorts and a plain T or tank your sunglasses can add that extra pop you need to turn heads. Celebs accessorize with cool shades all the time and you can too!  Sunglasses are always in fashion so no matter what brand, style or color you choose to rock, you’ll look stylish!

Fashionably Yours,

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!
xoxo,
