Satchel Style

Hey there, Bratzies! Cloe here, and if you’re like me, you need a SERIOUS purse to hold all your makeup, your cell phone, journal, and anything else that could solve any possible issues at school, the mall, or even a dance! This Fall, the best bag there is to handle…well, EVERYTHING…is the stylin’ satchel bag.

Somewhere between a clutch and a shoulder bag, the satchel was made to be carried low by the handles, or worn high close to the body and around the shoulder. These bags are seriously roomy. I can fit my whole life in one of these, and thanks to its rounder shape, it doesn’t look bulky or clunky.

Plus, since it’s designed to be carried or worn close at hand, it’ll take less time to grab your cell phone out of it to put in a cute boy’s number!

Try coordinating the color of your satchel with the primary color of your accessories, such as your belt, shoes, or scarves – it’ll enhance those small doses of shade on your body and really make them POP! What would YOU put in your satchel before leaving the house?

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 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,

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,

Jewelry Trends: Bracelets

Hey fashionistas, Sasha here!  Do you ever have those days where you can’t pick just ONE accessory to wear?  Guess what…so do I! But I realized, why wear one bracelet when you can wear them ALL!  When I’m in a t-shirt & jeans mood, I love piling on arm accessories to dress up a simple outfit. Plus, it’s a great way to make a statement…and you know how I love to make an entrance anywhere I go! Check out some of these summer bracelet trends and then try them out for yourself!

Mixed & matched bracelets are totally of-the-moment right now!  Wear a big, enamel bangle with a skinny, sparkling one for an eye-catching look!

Mix & match!              

Stackable bracelets are a must for your jewelry box.  I love wearing a ton of ‘em at once so they make a fun jingling sound! You can also wear just a few for a more classic look.

Stack ‘em up!

Wear a tough cuff with a dainty string bracelet to show your sweet and edgy sides…I could totally see Cloe rockin’ this look!

Rockin’ style!

Rose gold is so in this season!  Wear a big watch with some chain bracelets so it’s always fashion time!

Fashion Time!

What’s your favorite bracelet look? And how do you deck out your wrists?

Summer Hairstyles

Hey Fashionista! Do you know what’s in store for your lovely locks this summer? Here are some summer statements that are totally easy breezy for this sunny season!

Buns: Try a messy bun for a carefree day out at the beach and shopping at the mall, or try a sleek sock bun to get your hair out of your face and still look fierce!

Jade rocks two buns for a stylin’ summer ‘do!

Braids: Braids are back this summer! My favorite is the fishtail braid. It’s a fab alternative braid that adds a little fun to the classic braid.

Yasmin looking pretty with her side-swept braid!

Ponytails: Ponytails are always in, but this summer try to adding your own twist to it, literally! It’s totally cool and totally easy!

Me rockin’ a twisted ponytail!

Short Chic: If you’re feeling a little adventurous this summer, try a perfectly pretty pixie cut or a short bob! It’s fresh, fabulous and fun for the summer months. Celebrities like Vanessa Hudgens, Emma Watson and Michelle Williams are sportin’ these stylish short ‘dos!

Jade was experimenting with the idea of cutting her hair so she tied it in a high ponytail to see if she liked the short bob look.

What’s your go-to summer hairstyle?

Confidence is Key

Hey Bratz Fanz! We’ve previously written about cool colored denim, flashy footwear, spring makeup trends and sparkly statement jewels, but pretty clothes, shoes, makeup and jewelry don’t make you pretty they just enhance your natural beauty. So today I’m going to tell you about the number one beauty must-have that works all year long: CONFIDENCE!

I dare you to go without makeup or fierce fashions for one weekend. Here are the rules: Throw on a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt — no makeup, no jewelry and no accessories — just tie your hair up in a ponytail and go out because the girl in the mirror is beautiful just the way she is!

Don’t get me wrong girls, I love fashion and makeup more than the average person, but every once in a while we need to remind ourselves that we don’t need to cover ourselves with all the latest trends to be beautiful – we already are!

So once you have the confidence to feel pretty in your own skin, then start adding the accessories back into your life. Remember, fashion isn’t about making you feel pretty… it’s about making you feel even prettier than you already are – inside and out!

xoxo,

 

Interview with Jasmin Larian

Jasmin Larian talks about Bratz and her personal passion for fashion.

Hey Bratzies! We sat down with Jasmin Larian, designer and daughter of Bratz founder Isaac Larian, and asked her some of your fashion questions! Check out her answers below to find out more about her fashion inspirations!

Have you ever made any fashion mistakes? (From Kabillion Girls Rule)

I wouldn’t call any fashion faux pas mistakes…But I experimented with cornrows ala Bo Derek in high school. I loved them, my mom didn’t.  It was low maintenance and looked amazing to me at the time.

How would you describe your personal fashion passion? Are you as earthy as your doll Yasmin? (From Alex B.)

I am as earthy as Yasmin the doll! I love floral dresses and fringe, but as I’ve grown older my style has merged into a more bohemian sophisticated chic look — but most of the time no matter what I’m wearing you’ll see me with a flower crown!

If you could pick one of the Bratz girls to be for one day, which one would you be and why? (From Selena A.)

Other than Yasmin?! I would be Jade because I think her style is so rad and funky.  She can pull off looks that only stylists dream of.

Do you influence any of the doll designs now that you’re older?  (From Angeline B.)

Yes! I run my own line of accessories called CULT GAIA, but am still very much involved in the design process for the dolls. It’s my first passion!
