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,

Summer Skin Care

When the summer sun is shining bright I love splashing around at the beach all day with my girlz! It’s so easy to get carried away with summer fun and forget about putting on some extra SPF.

Remember, part of being a fabulous fashionista means taking care of your body—and your skin is so important to protect! The sun can damage your skin very badly over time and can cause wrinkles, age spots, eye problems and sometimes go as far as skin cancer.

I embrace my natural glow and protect my skin from the sun's harmful rays!

I always slather on SPF 15 face moisturizer every morning. When I know I’m spending the day enjoying the great outdoors—whether at an outdoor mall or hanging with friends at the park—I put at least SPF 15 sun block all over myself. When I’m active outside or going in and out of water I make sure to reapply many times throughout the day. Even the sun block that says “sport” or “water proof” on the package needs to be reapplied because it does come off!

There are other ways to be skin smart in the sun by the clothes you wear, like wearing a big floppy sun hat! I pair it with some wide rimmed sunglasses for a retro glam look! It protects my face and eyes and looks great.

If you must have that sun kissed look do it safely! I dust a little bronzer on my cheeks and forehead so it gives just the right amount of warm glow to my face. To get an all over body glow you can use self-tanning lotions. Some work gradually, meaning the color builds up each time you use it and others are stronger and give you an immediate glow. My best advice for self-tanning lotions is to exfoliate your skin before with a loofah and a good body scrub.

Enjoy the summer sun—go out and play! Be safe, love, laugh, live and embrace your natural glow!

Love,

Guest Post: Bratz Boyz Trends

Hey Bratzies! Super-fan Alex B here with some trendy tips for the boyz. If you know a guy with a passion for fashion who’s lookin’ to stay stylish this spring, you’re in luck ‘cuz I’ve got this season’s hottest trends for boyz to keep them fresh and fashionable!

NEON COLORS
One of this spring’s biggest trends for boys are neon colors. A touch of color adds major spark to any outfit! Pair plain skinny jeans with a bright graphic T and matching sneakers for a casual look that pops! If you’re a fan of colorful skinnies, go bold with the reverse look, using a black or white graphic T instead! Go-to colors that stand out on anyone are lime green, acid yellow, and electric blue. Neon colors aren’t just for clothes though! If your style is more toned down, adding a bright belt, colorful shades, or a rockin’ wristband will give your look electric accents that bring out the hue in you!

There are so many ways to rock neon colors! Step out in sizzling hues to make a spark in the streets, and at school!

WILD PRINTS
Also trending for guys are wild prints. Bold patterns are great for makin’ statements and stayin’ stylish! Most black & white patterns compliment neon colors nicely too, and many pieces are available in bright, colorful prints! For a laid-back look, try a printed T with jeans or shorts. For a sharper look, wear a patterned button-down instead! Everyone can pull off prints, but if you’re not totally convinced, start with basic geometrics. Be sure to avoid clashing too many patterns in one outfit too. It could mean the difference between looking your best, and looking a mess!

Peep these prints! Plaid, stripes, camo, and a funky floral too!

VINTAGE REVIVAL
Vintage-inspired looks are huge this spring too. Retro accessories are coming back big-time! Thick-rimmed glasses are awesome because they work with everything, and come in a variety of colors! Bowties are also great retro accessories because they too come in many colors and patterns, and look great with button-down shirts! Also making a comeback are suspenders. Suspenders are a cool way to add quirky style to any outfit, and also come in tons of colors! Retro accessories give your wardrobe a touch of timelessness, but don’t over-do it! Wear one at a time to give your outfits a vintage twist without looking obsolete ;)

Awesome eyewear makes the perfect accessory for any outfit!

Well dudes, that’s all for now. Stay stylin’!

-Alex

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?

Bratz Hair Extensions 101

Hello dollz—Sasha on the scene bringing you a quick lesson on hair extensions! Hair extensions are a fun and fabulous way to add some color to your hair without long-term commitment or causing damage to your gorgeous locks. I’ve seen some pretty crazy styles out there—from feathers to glowing fiber optic strands! Celebs always rock extensions to help them go from long luscious waves on the red carpet to an exciting colorful hairstyle on stage.

There are a few different types of hair extensions. You can either get clip-on, glue-in or weaved in extensions.

Clip-on hair extensions are super easy to wear and change. You just need to hide the clip under a layer of hair. This is best for one-day use or if you just like to change up your look a lot!

Glue-in extensions can last up to a month—if done right—and you’ll need a hair stylist or friend to help.  To remove them you need to use a special oil-conditioning remover. If you are patient and gentle you can take them off without damaging your hair.

Weaved in extensions stay on longer than glue in extensions and are pretty much “threaded” into your hair on hidden rows of braids. These extensions take a while for the hair stylist to put on your hair but the results are worth it if you want the extensions in for a long time. You can wash your hair and style it anyway you want!

If you need more detail on how to put on hair extensions, surf YouTube for great How-To videos—there are some good ones out there! What do you think about hair extensions?

Catch ya later!
