Bratz Club, Here We Come!!!

Yo, Bratzies!

Sasha here, and on behalf of my girlz we want to give YOU a crazy loud shout out!! THANK YOU! 

Because of all your awesome enthusiasm, Cloe’s idea for a Bratz club is a go!

We have SOOOO much to think of before our club launches. Turns out there is a ton that goes into club making! Whew! Maybe you Bratzies can help us out?

We have read all the totes fab club names you gave us and have narrowed it down. Next week we will give you our fave club names to vote on!! Check the blog Monday to vote!

After narrowing down our club names, we elected our club government. Cloe is President. Yours truly is Vice President, thank you very much. Kool Kat will be treasurer and our Pretty Princess is Secretary and Historian.

Our new club makes all us Bratzies, from all around the globe, part of something special. We are a team. We are a unit. And our club will be a safe place where Real Bratz will always be welcomed and will always be loved.

The Bratz club members will climb on each other’s shoulders, reach for the stars, unleash their passion and change the world!! We are so crazy psyched for this rad club of support and friendship! Holla’ if you’re happy with the hapz, Bratzies!

Now we need to come up with fabtastic wayz to unite us! Yours truly came up with the R.A.B. Fab (Real.Awesome.Bratz. Fabulous!) idea of wearing the same thing on Mondays. This way you and your secret Bratzie brothers and sisters will feel united! You know I love fashion, so I will keep changing it up. One Monday I may suggest we all wear green. Another Monday we may all wear our hair in side braids or wear our hats or belts sidewayz. Whaddya think? Rad, right?

We could also come up with a Kray-Z-Kool top-secret handshake and club password. Or a credo you must recite before becoming a full member, like:

“I swear to my Bratzie core, that I will always be a fab friend to any Bratzie in need, will always believe in myself and will always unleash my passion. I will always take a stand, stand out and stand for changing the world!”

Or something like that! Whaddya Bratzies think? Is there anything we are forgetting? Do you have any other ideas for our new club?

Ahhhhh! So much to do! So little time! We need your help!

REAL BRATZIES 4 LIFE!!!
Stay Stylin’

 

Youngest Oscar Nominee EVER!!

Yo, Bratzies! Sasha here, and I’m so totally stoked for the Oscars this weekend! I heart glamtastic productions like the Academy Awards. Any excuse for my girlz to hang together and get dolled up like the stars, am I right?

This year, I’m particularly pumped for the Best Actress category. Did you Bratzies know that Quvenzhané Wallis is the youngest person EVER to be nominated for an Oscar? It’s true!

Quvenzhané followed her passion by auditioning for her role in Beasts of the Southern Wild when she was only five, even though the audition called for six-year-olds! Quvenzhané said her character “does what is right and she is fearless. And that’s what I did (by coming to) the audition.”  Way to go, fellow Bratzie!

Quvenzhané may be a scene-stealer, like me, but when she grows up, Quvenzhané wants to be a dentist so she can help people smile. I just know she will rock anything she puts her mind to!

Quvenhané had an awesome goal and found her own unique way to go for it. That’s what makes her a Real Bratz girl!

Tell me, Bratzies, have you ever done something fearless to pursue your passion?

Grammy Review

Sasha here, and I was loving EVERY MINUTE of the Grammys this last weekend. I was so happy to see Adele take home the win on Best Pop Solo Performance! To think…she started out her music dreams wanting to be a TALENT SCOUT, looking for the next great singer instead of being one! Her star started rising when a friend of hers posted a video of her singing on MySpace. It just goes to show, true talent will always find a way to shine!

It was also so cool to see Kimbra win more than once for her duet with Gotye. “Somebody That I Used to Know” is definitely one of my fave songs. I found out Kimbra had been writing songs since age 10! Did you know she and Gotye recorded that winning hit in her bedroom with almost no equipment? How amazing is that? I record the songs I write in my bedroom at home, too…maybe someday it’ll be me with the hit song!

Who were your favorite ladies and gentlemen at the Grammys? If you were nominated for a Grammy, what amazing talent would they be recognizing in you?

Keep Winning!

Beyond The Red Carpet

Sasha here, Bratzies, and I had such a great time watching all the amazing ladies at the Golden Globes this month! It was so great to see women like Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence win for some INCREDIBLE performances, and I got so see my favorite singer, Adele, win for “Skyfall!” I was so thrilled to see her crazy good song in the new James Bond film get an award, I actually screamed!

I decided to read up on a few of the winning ladies after the Awards, and found out that so many of them have taken some pretty amazing chances and stances in their lives. Jessica Chastain, for example, is a strong vegan and anti-animal cruelty activist, inspired by her mother, who was a vegan chef. Jennifer Lawrence graduated from high school two years early with a 3.9 average in order to begin a career in acting. Adele originally wanted to specialize in talent scouting and hoped to launch other people’s careers before her music was discovered on a friend’s MySpace page. These women are so much more than the glamor and glitz of Hollywood, it blows my mind!

What are some of the chances and stances you take? Where do you think your passions will ultimately take you?

Catch you later, Bratzies!

 

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,

 

Bratz and the Big Screen

Watching movies in the theaters and at home with the family is the best! This year there were some really cool movies like The Secret World of Arrietty, Hotel Transylvania, Frankenweenie and Ice Age: Continental Drift…but the movie that really stood out to us was Dr. Suess’ The Lorax. It’s based on one of our very favorite childhood books by Dr. Seuss.

One of the quotes that we Bratz girls took with us from the book and film, “It’s not about what it is, it’s about what it can become,” is super important to us. We love keeping an eye to the future and working hard to make everything that we have into something totally amazing in the days to come.

What were your fave movies this year, and what lessons did you take from them?

See you in the theater!

Rainy Day Hair

Rainy days can be the ultimate bad hair day! If hair is curly, the rain sometimes causes frizz. If hair is straight in the rain, our beautiful strands can fall flat. What a bummer!

As the resident fashionista, I’m here to talk how to perk up that rainy day hair in a jiffy. There are so many things a Bratzie can do!

I’m always a fan of a messy ponytail, pigtails or the uber trendy top-knot. If you’re really feelin’ down about your hair because of the rain, I suggest trying a hat (like the beret I’m wearing in the photo). There are also really cute slouchy beanies, headbands (try a thick winter, knitted one) or even go sporty with a baseball cap.

Don’t let a little wet hair bring ya down!

What hairstyles do you try in the rain? Tell me in a comment, I’m always looking for new tips!

Love,

 

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

Style Staples

It’s no secret that the Bratz absolutely love to get dressed up and create some funky, fabulous fashions! We always have tons of fun playing with the clothes in our closets and trying to create more new outfits with items we already own. If you girliez are like us (which we know you are!), fashion and style is a big part of your daily life.

One afternoon we were all hanging around with our BFFs talking about our favorite outfits. After talking clothes for hours (obviously), we compiled a little list of items that all of us seemed to have in our closet that we often used in different ways to create awesome outfits. These items are great to keep on hand and tend to appear every year in some sort of trendy fashion.  We thought it was a good idea to share these Bratz Style Staples with all of our friendz! These pieces can create many different styles that fit your personality and the best part is you can wear them from year to year!

Here are our Bratz Style Staples –

  • Leggings – invest in printed ones  like leopard, zebra or a bright neon pair.
  • Jacket – denim or leather. Even a cropped jacket would be awesome!
  • White T-shirt – always great to pair with a maxi skirt, denim pants or printed leggings
  • Accessories – a statement or chunky necklace or earrings always make an outfit pop
  • Go-To Shoes – whether they are high top sneakers, black high heels, embellished sandals or glitzy flats, your go-to shoes should represent your personality & the outfits you like to wear

What do you consider to be personal style staples? Share with us in the comments!

Sasha’s Top 5

Hiya Bratz! Sasha here and I’m in such a great mood I thought I’d be the one to blog today!

With the launch of the Bratz Style Starz App on iTunes I felt inspired to update some of my music with new jams to dance and sing-along to and I am SO happy I did.  There were a lot of songs from my usual faves…like Justin Bieber (talk about a dreamboat!), but there are also a few new singers / bands that have been a blast to rock out to.

These newly discovered tunes totally having me singing and dancing the day away with a smile. With catchy lyrics and upbeat tempos, how can any Bratzie resist?

Here’s what’s been on my playlist lately.

  • Mindless Behavior – Valentine’s Girl
  • Justin Bieber – As Long As You Love Me
  • Calvin Harris featuring Ne-Yo  – Let’s Go
  • Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe
  • Nicki Minaj – Starships

I’m always on the hunt for some great new tunes and want to hear from you! Tell me in the comments below – what are some of your favorite songs and artists of 2012?

That’s all from me. Dance with ya later, Bratzies!
