New year. New goals & accomplishments to…ahem…accomplish! What’s one goal you’d like to accomplish in 2016?
I know I’ve got a whole slew of goals I want to achieve this year. Such as doing more public speaking and going on a missions trip. I also want to get a styledbyryn website going. And get some portraits done of me for business. I really want to know your goal(s) that you want to do this year.

But, maybe you’re saying, but Ryn, resolutions & accomplishing goals do not work for me… They’ve never worked in the past, I never stick with it, nothing gets resolved… Excuse after excuse…

Well, there are ways to help accomplish those said goals:
• Keep them in front of you at all times. Each day look at them. Marinate on them.
• Keep a notebook in your purse or bag and put pen to paper and write those goals down whenever you think of a new one.
• Download the app Goals&Dreams and put those drams & goals in there.
•Start small. If you can accomplish a teeny tiny one, you’ll be more motivated to accomplish the bigger ones.
• Put time limits on it. You’ll be more motivated to accomplish when you’re rushed for time.
• Push yourself. It’s okay to push yourself. Think beyond what you can do. Think bigger!
•Compete if you have to. If it’s getting so many work outs in a week, bring a friend along and compete on how many push ups you can do or compete with yourself, by say this is how many squats I can do. Let’s see how I can do twice as many of the said amount. The thing is, you body can endure more pain than you know. But you’ve gotta put your mind to the matter and start applying yourself to exercising or you’ll never reach your goal. One thing I like to ask myself when working out is: where’s my wall? And what that means is, is that how much more can I endure? If the trainer says you only need to do five repetitions more, but when you get there, you may say my wall is actually 5 repetitions more… Go for it. Where’s your wall?
• Tell a loved one about some of your goals and have them hold you accountable.
• Oh and get them done.

I hope this helps! And let me know what a goal that you want to accomplish in 2016!!! Its going to be the Best! I can feel it! -Ryn

Style find: what about west egg?

Have y’all heard of West Egg? Yeah, me neither!
I found out about them, when they contacted me. I was a bit skeptical at first. I wasn’t sure what they were about, but I clicked the link and I was pleasantly surprised. They have many brands that I love, like Anthropologie, Nordstrom & Daniel Wellington watches. That are definitely discounted, say 20%-80% off retail value. Niiiiice! And it’s all current things. At first I was thinking it was resale, but no, it’s not, it’s off the rack items. Just nicely discounted.
Now they are small in inventory, but the company seems small. But as you and I begin to shop from them, I’m sure that in no time they with become bigger & better, for sure!
Right now they carry purses, jewelry & accessories. Not going to lie, I went on their website thinking they sell shoes, to quickly finding out they don’t. I was bummed needless to say! Ha! But they have other great things, so it kinda made up for it! Oh and did I mention, that they have both women’s & men’s items on there? Yes they do, so not only did I find some things on the women’s side, but also on the men’s too. Borrowing from the boys, eh?

I even wanted to show you some things that struck my fancy, you ready? Okay! Here goes:

Only thing I see for them to improve, would be to add shoes & makeup to their inventory! But other than that, the prices seem fairly reasonable, the stuff is up to date and their mission is awesome. I’d say a great place to purchase from!
