Inspiration strikes me at any moment of any day. It could be in the middle of the night, I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and I’ll have to sing something into my phone. Or sometimes I’m in the shower and I’m like, “Somebody record this!” - Riker Lynch

My Clara Outfit. I added some tights because it’s cold out and I went out in this; And yes, I have a sonic in my closet, who doesn’t?

The leg up at the end tho.

I like the coach, putting his hands on his knees like, “Welp, that wasn’t it.”

i was almost like “oh man that sucks” and then her leg popped and i fucking lost it

That leg is killing me

THE LEG KILLED ME

falling with style

i reblogged this a million times and i still dont know what it’s funnier: the leg or the coach

the fact that the coach is her father makes this funnier

Thought I’d upload some concert footage for the R5 Family following me! I didn’t get too much HD video since I was so busy rocking out but here is a cute little clip of Riker dancing around.

People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

  5. I’m in the middle of prep for a show I have in Septmeber 
Recently I’ve begun to notice just how many girls don’t think they’re beautiful; and I have to admit it breaks my heart.  It seems that no matter where I go: The mall, a concert, a friend’s house, a set or even volunteering in the elementary school room at church; I meet dozens of people who don’t see just how beautiful they are.  Project BeYOUTiful is a little something I’m starting that (hopefully) will help change the way you think about yourself.
What Is Project BeYOUtiful?
Project BeYOUtiful is a new way of thinking. We’re told by media, peers and even our families that beauty is a physical thing; but it’s not. Beauty is not what you wear, how you do your makeup or the body you were born with; it’s about feeling good in your own skin and being who you are. When you let the real you shine through you’re automatically beautiful.  Project Beautiful is designed to remind you just how wonderful and unique you are through quotes, photos, daily challenges and support.
How do I take part?
Project BeYOUtiful is dedicated to supporting each other and bringing out the best in each other.  There are many way you can be a part of Project BeYOUtiful.  The simplest one is simply supporting each other. We’ve all had days when even a simple supportive comment would made a huge difference and knowing someone is there for you is always a good thing. Another way you can contribute if to submit your favorite quotes, tips for feeling beautiful or photos of what makes you feel beautiful (this can be anything from a photo of you playing your favorite sport to something you created to a grade you got on a test to an item of clothing you bought) to the Project BeYOUtiful Tumblr. 
What do you hope to achieve through this?

I hope to show girls that beauty isn’t defined by others. No one can tell you you’re not beautiful, because you are beautiful just by being who you are and showing that light to the world. I want girls to see that they can do anything they set their mind to; no matter who they are and create a support system to remind them.

My brother decided to take impromptu photos of me while we waited in the parking lot of the car dealership today.
