It's Not About the Shoes

It's Not About the Shoes

"It's Not About The Shoes, It's What You Do In Them"
~Michael Jordan

Shoes are important to a lot of athletes. My son is a dancer and I know how important his shoes are. We have to go to a special store and make sure that they are sized properly and he can do certain moves while wearing the shoes. He can't get on stage and find out his shoes are too loose, big or small. His shoes have to be as close to perfection as possible. And I happily pay whatever it costs so that he has those amazing shoes. 

So what happens if you have those fabulous shoes but you just put them in your closet and don't use them? 

Will anyone see them? Was it worth it to spend the money on those awesome shoes? 

Why did you buy them just to keep them locked away?

I used to do it too.

How To Change Your Appearance

How To Change Your Appearance

I hated myself. For a long time. I hated my face, my body and even my glorious boobs lol.

Seriously though, it was not a fun time in my life. You can read about me being a Fashion Liar here.
I dressed poorly and told myself some horrific things. Things I would never utter to another human being but I was perfectly at peace to say them to myself. I was super hard on myself. I'm still hard on myself but I've learned to love myself too. Before I would say that mean stuff but never apologize to myself for it. I don't say such harsh things to myself now and if by chance if something does slip in, I apologize to myself right away.  

The title of this blog post assumes that you're unhappy with your appearance. I hate making assumptions so why would I assume that you're unhappy with how you look?

Because I googled "Depressed about my looks" to see what would pop up, hoping it wasn't much. But unfortunately or fortunately? I found a ton of crappy advice.

Most of the advice that I found was to accept the way you look, stop wearing makeup, stop looking at fashion magazines, etc etc etc. 

It was multiple articles of crap. It was so bad and pissed me off so much that I decided to write this post.

5 Reasons Why You Should Be Wearing Ryze Gear

I started this blog because I love fashion and Ryze Gear but especially because I really want to help people. That's the bottom line to all I do. I want people to be better, be happy and look good. I believe that I can help people ryze their style and that in turn will make them better and happy. 

It's kind of a big thing I'm taking on. But, I decided that I would do this because it's how I changed my life. I learned how to be happy and it really started with two things....my beliefs and my style.

So, why should you be wearing our designs instead of Walmart's, Target's or some other crooked, handmade tee you found on Etsy?

The Story of Us

The Story of Us

Once upon a time a beautiful girl named Cyn met a talented designer named J-Ryze.

 

J was happy with his life the way it was, helping heroes Ryze up. He had a small online store with a few t-shirts he’d made for some friends, but not many people knew about them or his design talents. 

 

One day, Cyn saw these designs and realized the huge potential J’s apparel-shop had. So she went to him and said...

 

"Hey, I have some ideas for shirts and I think you're super talented. I'd love to help you get the word out about your awesome designs, make some cool shirts and help elevate people's style with our clothes."

 

J’s reply?

 

"Sure." 

 

Heh, he's a man of few words at times.

Live Every Day Like It's Your Last!

Regrets

Don’t live your life for other people and die with regrets.

This is something in my face for the last few days.

My beautiful, amazing, fabulous cousin is 38 years old and she’s about to die. Death is inevitable and it happens to everyone. We can’t avoid it. It’s coming for you, for me and for everyone we love.

 

So, if you know you’re going to die then what are you doing just sitting there not chasing your dreams?
