A Beginner's Guide to Self-Love

WINTER 2016Ayana MillerComment

I started hand making "Love Yourself'" bangles as a physical token of encouragement for my girlfriends. I wanted them to be reminded  of their worth on a daily basis. In the chaos of everyday, it can be hard to stay positive and focused on long-term goals. I knew I needed a reminder and I didn't want to keep my self-love token a secret.  

Love Yanz bangles are a simple, but fashionable way to make a huge statement without saying a word. The #loveyourself movement is a reminder to make positive, self-affirmation a daily habit. 


Buy one for yourself, daughter, sister, niece, grandma, mom, girlfriends, and anyone else you love and want to stay encouraged. Each bracelet is hand crafted, stamped with love, and is personalized (for free!) just for you. 

Let's make self-love and affirmation a movement and use it to fuel us as we pursue our wildest dreams and ambitions

Moving with Moxie

SUMMER 2015Ayana MillerComment

What do you think of when you hear the word moxie? Wearing a Moxie bracelet is a bold reminder to stay energized, motivated, and curious.  Merriam-Webster defines moxie as the following: 

1. Energy, Pep

2. Confidence or motivation

3. Know-How

We had all three definitions in mind when we created the Summer 2015 collection. First and foremost on our minds was the notion of energy. Energy is what fuels us to keep going and it awakens our senses. Our pep brings colors to our lives the way the Moxie bracelet brings color to an outfit.

Having moxie is also about having confidence. It reminds me of the Lean In saying, "What would you do if you weren't afraid?" Would you take a trip or write a book? What's keeping you from pursuing your dreams? What motivates you? Whatever it is, pursue full-force ahead. never stop moving and don't let fear stand in the way of your goals. 

Finally, moxie is about know-how. This can also be expanded to include know-who, what, where, when, and why. It doesn't mean you have to know everything. In fact, at Love Yanz, we think know-how is more about asking questions that get to the how. Know-how is about navigating your surroundings to learn so that you can share with others.
