barbie brand

 Hello everyone! In case you haven’t read my previous post, I will be sharing some of my favorites, so you all can get to know me a little bit better

Today we are talking about Barbie!!

More specifically the Barbie movies!

Aside from Sailor Moon, Barbie was a major part of my life growing up and still is. Barbie represents more than just beauty, but the epitome of a strong, intelligent, and brave female heroine. To many, Barbie was simply a character that they grew out of. However, I believe she relates to many individuals no matter the age, gender, and race. I also really appreciate Mattel’s new vision of creating a more diverse and inclusive branding. Barbie has now evolved to a fun and expressive role model for all ages!

Like many, my twin sister and I outgrew the Barbie phase. It wasn’t until our freshman year of high school when we decided to watch  “Barbie and The Diamond Castle” and the rest was history! We were captivated by the magic of Barbie once again and it’s meaningful motifs behind each movie.

Each film exemplifies not only adventure, but self-empowerment, hope, and belief.  

Here are some of my favorites Barbie quotes:

Barbie in The 12 Dancing Princesses (2006)
“There’s a difference only you can make.” 

Barbie: Fairytopia (2005)
“What makes you different makes you special.” 

Barbie: A Fashion Fairy Tale (2010)
“Magic happens when you believe in yourself.” 

Barbie and The Three Musketeers (2009)
“True courage is pursuing your dream, even when everyone else says it’s impossible.” 

Barbie and The Magic of Pegasus (2005)
“There is always hope.” 

Barbie as Rapunzel (2002)
“Love and imagination can change the world.” 

Let’s talk about my favorite Barbie movies…

Although I love many of the movies, my all time favorites are “Barbie and the 12 Dancing Princesses” and “Barbie as Rapunzel”

 These films are Barbie’s classic as they are depict a more fairy tale approach. What makes these two films great is the great attention to detail, strong protagonists, and an enchanting soundtrack.

Last, but not least, the Barbie Vlogs!

More recently, Mattel has re-positioned their brand to a more “modern” Barbie to adapt to the technological environment and competitors. The evolution of Barbie has led to Mattel reaching to the YouTube world, which has been extremely penetrating for many different demographics. What I really enjoy about the vlogs is how realistic Barbie is. You feel as if she is a real person talking to you! Most importantly, she uses her platform to discuss individuality, forgiveness, and standing up for yourself and others.

Christmas to you always meant something so much more. You grew up celebrating Christmas with your family. It was so very easy to get you into the holiday spirit. All your life you had lived in a simple little house with your parents. Both of them were retired hunters, or semi-retired hunters because no one ever really retires in this life. They grew up in the life, and raised you in the life and you thought it was just normal, until you started going to school and realizing that not everyone knew about the things that went bump in the night.

Sam and Dean did, though, and you very quickly became friends with the Winchester boys. John Winchester would, more often than not, dump his kids at your parents place for a week or so, or at your uncle Bobby’s - who was not actually you’re uncle, just a very close family friend - and you would frequently spend time with the two boys, sharing stories of hunts and new monsters on the grid. Your parents had even let the three of you have friendly aim competitions in the shooting range that they transformed your basement into.

When Sam left for college, Dean insisted he take up hunting on his own. At 22, he was very confident that he could do it by himself, but Bobby and John insisted he have a partner. That’s where you came in. You and Dean hunted together for four years before he decided to get his brother back, after John went MIA on a hunting trip. In the four years it was just you and Dean, Christmas became just another day of the week, and the traditions that you grew up with faded to a happy memory.

My Family Is Your Family

for @sterekseason‘s 25 days of sterek prompt ‘meeting the parents for the first time’

read on ao3:

“Stiles, stop worrying,” Derek said as they walked up the driveway to his family home.

“Derek, your family is huge and there are so many of them to impress I don’t think this will go well.”

“Babe they’ll love you okay?” Derek said, excited for his family to meet Stiles.

For so long his family pestered him for being single and never bringing anyone home. Now, he was bringing the perfect guy home and he couldn’t be more excited.

Derek flicked through his keychain while he looked for his key, opening the front door and letting the two of them in.

In what is being heralded as the biggest, boldest move in the franchise’s 57+ year history, Mattel’s flagship and household fixture “Barbie” announced today (January 28, 2016) that they would be expanding their Fashionista line to introduce three new body types that will be sold alongside their svelte “Original”. They are “Tall”, “Curvy”, and “Petite”.

In recent years, with the rising popularity of doll lines highlighting and celebrating the unique differences among people in our world (like Mattel’s own Monster High), Barbie’s popularity (and sales) have seen significant declines… enough so that, behind the scenes within the company, an initiative to revamp the legendary doll; virtually, from the ground up. Within the company, this push to redefine and rediscover Barbie’s essence and her place in the modern world was code-named Project Dawn. What you see above is the culmination of that work; 4 body types, 7 different skin tones, 22 different eye colors, and 24 individual hairstyles (to say nothing of face sculpts).

Anyone who’s followed us for a significant amount of time know that I (Mod Ren) am a huge fan of fashion dolls… So, naturally, I have a lot to say about this development…

  • Host: I feel you, though. Like, dude, even if this wasn't like his 90th time being in some shit I wouldn't help him. Dude blamed that fucked up shit on someone's dog. They're probably gonna put it down. That's fucked. That's an innocent animal. That's someone's family as far as I'm concerned. Fuck him. You gonna tell the cops or something?
  • Cameraman: Nah. I'm hoping his girlfriend just butchers him like she did that to that cat. For real, though. I don't mess with cops or feds.
  • Host: I feel you.

Aside from large eyes drawn in "Anime" style on its face, it lacks any facial features. The entity wears a purple dress.

  • Host: Don't worry, Mark. I will save you.
  • Host hits the entity several times on its back with the ax. The entity bleeds a yellow and pink substance. Camerman crawls from under the entity, gets up, and stomps the entity's head.
  • Host: Ouch, hurting mommy hurts me.
  • Cameraman: Owie, it hurts me too!
  • Host: I think we both learned today not to hurt mommy. Hurting her hurts me more than it does her.
  • Cameraman: I don't know what that means, but I agree.
  • Host and Cameraman continue to attack the entity for the duration of the footage.
  • Recording cuts to footage of Host lying face down on the floor of a plain white room. A mannequin wearing the Co-Host's gas mask stands beside her.

  • Thank you for reading.

To the boy who will love me next,

The taste of my last relationship is still lingering on my tongue. Bittersweet. Be patient with me. Give me time to rinse it out.

I don’t know when to speak or when to shut up.
I carry my problems and my past in the back pockets of my shorts. Ocassionally, I will reach for them, forgive me when I do, it’s a force of habit and I do not know how not to.

I’m stubborn, I hate carrying an umbrella everywhere I go, even if it is raining outside. I’m the type of girl who will put on a hoodie or jacket and either embrace the rain or sprint through it.

I’m selfish sometimes, that, I’ll admit. Sometimes I don’t bother about what you have to say and I’ll make it seem as though it’s all about me but when I am selfless, I give you my everything, every single piece of me. I would tear down my very existence for you if you asked, it’s something I’ve learned to do when I was with the first boy who broke my heart.

I’m also impulsive, especially when we argue, I will be as agressive as the sea during a storm. I’ll tell you the things that you don’t want to hear, the things you shouldn’t have heard, the things that should have never left my mouth. I’ll say the words as loud as thunder, as rough as the currents and regret the shipwreck after the storm has cleared; but you know what they say, “a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor”. Please remember that I never intend to be that way, I promise.

I love it when you show me you care and that you’re proud to have me. Show me off whenever you get the chance. I’ll be doing the same.

When it seems like I’ve given up on us, please know that I haven’t. Please, I beg of you, please give me time. Sometimes I will shut down and prefer to be alone, it’s a coping mechanism. When I push you away, this is when I need to hear “I love you” most.

I love music, it’s the only thing that has been there for me when I had no one, I have spent many years clinging to music, it was my only consistent source of support. I want to be your pillar of strength, I want to be as supportive to you as music is to me.

Please, share as much as you can with me. I won’t always know what to say but I promise you that I will always be ready to listen and I will always be ready to offer you a shoulder to lean on no matter what and I really do mean it when I say no matter what.

When we are fighting, please don’t go to the girl who lives down the street, please don’t go to the girl who loved you before me, please don’t go to the girl who you’ve just met a week ago in the coffee shop, I know her eyes shine brighter than mine and she’s not as broken as I am and it’s tempting to leave the broken porcelain doll for a brand new Barbie, but please, stay by my side. I may not be perfect but I am sincere. We’ll get through our tough times, we will fix the shipwrecks. I beg of you, do your best to never request for a breakup. Unless that is something that will make you happy. I just want you to be happy.

I love green tea, Fall Out Boy, sushi, frozen yogurt, Ben & Jerry’s, cuddling on a rainy day, lip biting, neck kissing, loud music. I will love your company, I will love your presence, I will love your existence, I will love the way our bodies fit perfectly against each other when we’re cuddling, I will love doing nothing all day with you, I will love the way our fingers interwind, I will love the way you feel like home.

To the boy who will love me next, I will love you with all my heart. Please, love me with all your heart too.

Zendaya To Receive One-of-a-Kind Barbie Honoring Iconic Oscars Red Carpet Look

She’s got her own unique style, and now, she’s about to have her very own Barbie!

That’s right, teen sensation Zendaya is reportedly being honored by the people over at Mattel with a doll which will hopefully capture the essence of the rising superstar.

But how does one take such a huge force in fashion and narrow down her unpredictable style? Easy. They go for her most controversial/iconic look to date - her much-talked-about 2015 Oscars get-up. 

According to ABC News, the manufacturer announced its plans to immortalize the actress last week with a one-of-a-kind Barbie doll. The figurine will be presented at the Barbie Rock ‘N Royals Concert Experience for which Zendaya will serve as the host. The fundraiser benefits VH1’s Save the Music Foundation. “I’m excited to be a part of the new direction the Barbie brand is headed, specifically how they are celebrating diversity in the line and encouraging kids to raise their voices,” said Zendaya.

This new direction began in June when the 56-year-old Barbie brand released its “Fashionistas” line to celebrate diverse looks. It features 23 new dolls, eight skin tones, 14 sculpts, 18 eye colors and 23 hair colors.

The Zendaya doll will be on display at the Barbie Rock ‘N Royals Concert Experience on Sept. 26 at the Hollywood Palladium.


“We want to remind the world what Barbie stands for. Founded by a female entrepreneur and mother in 1959, the Barbie brand has always represented the fact that women have choices,” said Mazzocco. “This ongoing initiative is designed to remind today’s parents that through the power of imagination, Barbie allows girls to explore their limitless potential.”
