Father Time

Father time is a fictional reminder that time is the ultimate luxury.  On the third Sunday in June, many of you will be enjoying father time. Do yourself a favor: skip the tie or the worlds best dad mug this year.  Give him a gift that symbolizes that his presence is always missed and felt. A Casio Edifice watch is an honorable way to edify your favorite man.

The Gift of Choice.

If time is a luxury, the vessel should match the aesthetic. This sophisticated timepiece - encased in stainless steel - will have many admiring the craftsmanship. With stylish carbon fiber dials, you will notice that functionality doesn't have to be sacrificed for luxury. When designing this watch, Casio had the adventurous man in mind; hence crafting a men's luxury watch that could withstand the everyman's lifestyle. With features like 100m water resistance coupled with a solar power battery, this watch works past your 9-5.

She now wants to open a bakery!  With every purchase of a Le Foodie Co bakers delight T-shirt this quarter, they are donating 20% of the net proceeds from the  "Bakers Delight" T-shirts and 10% of the net proceeds from the other t-shirts to help Tomonik bring her vision to life!

About Maasi Development Project. 

MDP Sponsored Children:  

  • MDP Education Center(MDPEC) was founded in November 2010.  The centre has been home to over 70 girls throughout the years. Working with the Child Services Department, MDPEC is a home that is a safe refuge for many girls that have been rescued from forced early marriage, FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), or have been “at-risk”. They are orphaned or come from a single parent household who cannot support them and are at risk of being sold into marriage by a close family member.  MDP provides a safe environment to live and provides education to each child, through college, university or technical School, resulting from their government qualifying exam scores.

Networking: The Social Club

Networking is a structured plan to get to know people who will do business with you or introduce you to those who will. Typically, ineffective networkers attend several networking groups but talk to the same friend's each time. Obviously, this behavior defeats the entire purpose of networking. Knowing this Laidback Allure in conjunction with The Cloud Room created The Social Club. A gathering where creatives, influencers and business entrepreneurs can converse over drinks and good music.

LaidBackAllure_SBP_33_2018.jpg

Remember networking is inclusive, not exclusive. After learning people's names, don't be afraid to add those wallflowers standing on the fringes to your conversation. This practice allows you to seamlessly move in and out of conversations while being a connector. AMAS also suggests you use your wardrobe to your advantage as comfort starts with appearance. A simple rule is to always dress one level better than the suggested dress code. Lastly be an active listener. Listening makes one captivating and will inspire you to ask smarter questions. Consider what we think about speech, "Talk is cheap", "That's mere rhetoric", "Silence is golden". People don't value listeners because they will respond with answers. We value the people who care to listen.

Standout: With Your Wardrobe

DSC_6261.jpg

The first thing to plan for is your first impression. Whether it's winning a job or a date, a key to success is making the other person comfortable. Comfort starts with your appearance. Yet there are subtle ways to be distinct. With the right use of color, patterns, and accessories one can command attention without saying a word. This power will now put you in a position of influence.

Color.

Colors bring about an emotional response in each of us. They stimulate emotions and feelings subconsciously. There are several factors to consider when wearing color: the color of your hair, your skin tone, and your eye colors are some of the most important ones. When incorporating color also consider what some colors symbolize. It is no surprise that the business color blue symbolizes trust, loyalty, and wisdom. 

DSC_6499.jpg

Patterns.

Like color, patterns must match the rest of the outfit, suit the occasion and be flattering on you. During Fall and Winter, we suggest adding some Plaid or Houndstooth to your wardrobe to make a statement. In the Spring and Summer Seersucker and Gingham are your game changers. Patterns not only set you apart aesthetically, but many times they add texture to your outfit.

Accessories. 

Even in the most conservative environments accessories are your gateway to individuality. When used correctly these pieces will be conversations starters. Yes, ties and socks are the standard. Beyond that consider infusing your wardrobe with pocket squares, tie bars, and the less popular collar bars. In addition, frames can also be used as a practical form of self-expression. Remember the purpose of accessories are to pull everything together unless your outfit is muted make sure they don't speak to loud.
