Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it life. Many believe that success is reserved for the few, when many times success can be summarized by a few dozen fundamentals repeated over time. Knowing this AMAS wanted to give you a roadmap for the new year.
We enlisted the help of Motivational speaker, Author and Coach Bernard Bergan. His experience on the battle field have made him an authority on goal setting and mission success. The challenges you face may not be life and death but our discussion will challenge you to change the habits that are holding you back. We will also give you strategies to improve your character, book suggestions, and principles to enrich your journey.

I started this blog 2 years ago to mainly talk style, and I've learned in that time that actually, I can have more of an impact and connect with others through my stories. My life has not been perfect. I've made some huge, monumental mistakes, and had to learn things the hard way at times. I've also had many successes and a whole lot of fun, so that's why I've decided to shift gears a bit and focus more on stories and style together. I want to share my genuine raw experiences in hopes that they will enable me to connect, learn, and grow with you guys!
I’m a twenty-something from Monterrey, Mexico living the American dream in the US. I live in Seattle and I work in the tech industry. I decided to write a blog because I’m a big fan of style and fashion and I wanted to share this with other people. I like to travel a lot and visit new places. My motto is be bold and let the world hear your voice.
I’m Elisa (E for short). I was born and raised in New York City and started my fashion design career there almost twenty years ago. I currently live in Seattle with my husband, Peter, and daughter, Kinsley, and LOVE the PNW.
My passion and love for fashion have shown me many adventures. Through my travels and experiences in the fashion industry, I’m ready to tell my “side” of the story.
As a creative individual with a thirst for inspiration, I’ve created this blog as a space to write all I know about fashion through my daily life and travels adventures.

Casually Cool with elements of luxury. Let the pants and the jacket do the talking. - Richard Meharry
It doesn't matter if you're off to the races or not. This look will get you attention at the race track or at the new rooftop bar. If it gets too hot, lose the jacket but not the aesthetic.
Travel in style and comfort. Tune out crying babies with some headphones and skip baggage claim with an all-purpose bag. With looks like these you should be on more than one runway.
Shed bad fashion and pounds.
Get more use out of your tux by making it casual. This look is casual enough to go to the grocery store and formal enough for events and professional wear.
SELL OR BE SOLD
This isn't a fashion show. Let them know you mean business when you walk into the boardroom. Remember a tie bar and pocket square will show you care about attention to detail.
Inspired by the spirt of the northwest. With a hint of sophistication. Wear the scarf like an ascot or in a triangular fold. We will just let you see for yourselves.

A Man About Style has partnered with Le Foodie co & Maasi Development Project to help a young entrepreneur achieve her dream. Tomonik is a young Kenyan girl from the Maasai Development Project. Maasai Development Project rescues young girls from Female Genital Mutilation and forced marriage. Tomonik’s story has inspired us since she is an aspiring entrepreneur. After graduating from secondary school, she began baking bread in a coal oven that the MDP has at their center. Her passion for bread making grew with her skills and she began selling bread in her village. Tomonik’s bread has since gained popularity and she has fallen in love with the business of baking. 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! So help us change a life fashionably.

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.
MDP Sponsored Trips:
MDP provides the opportunity for people around the world to join them for free medical/dental mission trips to the interior of Maasailand. Thus, sharing the opportunity to serve the Maasai community in remote areas with much needed medical and dental needs. These trips also provide opportunities to do building projects and work with our children. On the mission trips a safari is also provided with a stay at a 5-star safari camp.
MDP Awareness Speaking:
MDP welcomes the opportunity to come to your school, church, organization, or fundraiser to help bring awareness to the plight of the “at risk” girls in Maasailand. School presentations provide a hands-on opportunity for children to experience another culture.
