Obtaining success isn’t always a straight path. Intuition can go a long way in virtually every career path, business endeavor, and personal goal. By projecting success, you can not only change your self identity, but also shape the way others see you.
it’s true that we live in a vain, sometimes superficial world. Without becoming “worldly” we can use this to our advantage. here are some of Cufflinksman’s tips for projecting success.
Remember that it’s all in the details—the angle of your shoes, the seam in your pants, the quality of material of your blazer or jacket, the precision of your shave, the quality of your (more…)

Why Cufflinks are the Right Christmas Gift for Your Father-in-Law
We all know how hard you work to please your father-in-law and sometimes it seems nothing is ever good enough. Consider a personalized cufflink set for your “dad”–it’s kind of a no-brainer.
Why Cufflinks are the Right Christmas Gift for Your Brother-in-Law
Pair one of these stylish brother-in-law cufflinks with a DVD set, a 6 pack of craft beer, or a personalized mug and you’re good to go this holiday season.
1. Print your resume on good quality printing paper. Not card stock paper, nothing floral or fancy, just good quality printing paper than doesn’t “slop” over in your hand when reading. If the paper flops, you’re probably a flop too.
2. Don’t walk in with a drink in your hand. It looks unprofessional. Of course, this goes for food as well. As much as we all LOVE our Starbucks, leave it in the trash can at the door. And make sure you follow up with a mint.
3. Own your craft–you are the expert at what you do, always remember that. Fake it until you make it.
4. Firm Handshake–this goes without saying, but we have to say it anyways. Actually, anytime you meet someone remember this, for bejesus sake…
5. Wear one fashion signature piece. If you’re wearing a traditional black/ blue suit, make sure you show off your personality just a bit. Cufflinks are obviously a great way to do this, because they’re understated, but when noticed, can say a world about you. If you’re a musician, go for guitar cufflinks, etc.
EXTRA BONUS: If you can want to show him/her any files, .pdfs, powerpoints, excel sheets, etc. NOTHING looks cooler than reaching for your wrist, unlatching your cufflink/usb drive, and popping it into your laptop at a meeting. Plus it’s a good conversation starter. Take these Antique USB Drive Cufflinks as an example:
6. Have a copy of your personal and professional references on hand with phone numbers, ready to go. That way, if they want to follow up immediately after you leave, they can.
7. Be conscious of your social media presence BEFORE you walk into the office/ interview. Your potential new boss has already, most likely done his/her research and Google the hell out of you. Have ready-to go answers for any embarrassing tidbits that may be circulating around the web. This can go either way–it can work for you or against you, it’s all how you play it.
The best ways to keep your skin feeling fresh during this brittle winter season
By Amber Snider
What’s the first thing that happens to your body when the temperature drops? Get your mind out of the gutter, really, we’re just talking about your skin. You feel the cold, and your skin takes a beating because of it. Moisturize your body’s largest organ properly throughout the winter via the following: serious water intake, good daily moisturizer, and yes, a nightly cream. (yes, it’s time to take care of your skin via that nightly cream, especially if you’re over 35. You’ll thank us come…Friday?)
So now that you’re “with” us on this, I’m sure you’re wondering: But how do I do that exactly? What’s your best, professional advice to keeping my skin aglow, happy, and ultra-fashionable. Any tips for brands and remedies?
Well now that you asked, sure. That’s what we’re here for! 🙂 That way you don’t have to go asking your girlfriend which is the proper gentle day cream with SPF for under $20 bucks? Or the best winter (or all-season) cleanser? Look no further, Cufflinksman is back and we don’t legally endorse any of the products except our own, so you know it’s from the heart.
1. Daily Moisturizer
Wake up, brush the dentes, and then what? Moisturize. It’s important this dry season, with the bitter cold hitting our precious skin each time we open a shop door or go out for coffee, to put on a daily “something” lotion on your face. Try something simple at your local Rite Aid, Duane Reade, etc, like this Cerave Moisturizer for under $15.
2. Some Other Stuff like that, but even old-schooler:
Old-school celebrities and movie stars swear by this stuff. It’s been around since your grandmother (we almost guarantee that). It’s under $5 and worth every penny. Plus how is it always “cold” and thereby refreshing? Humans..
Ponds Cold Cream
3. Body Wash with Moisturizer
Yes, body wash with moisturizer. Look for it by name on any bottle, preferably with Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Aloe, and Green Tea Essentials. And go by MY rule: Scrub in the tub what you would eat for grub. Meaning, if it’s not edible, don’t go putting it all over your skin either. Your grandmother will thank us later for that too.
4. Weekly Scrub
If the apricot scrub at the local drug store isn’t your thing, try making your own:
Cup of coarse salt/sugar, vitamin E drops, olive oil, liquid soap, vanilla extract, water, and any other essential oil you like. Add a bow around a mason jar and pour, there you have it!
5. Nails: Hand Cream
Hands, next to the eyes/ face/ teeth, your hands are the other next things people notice immediately. Make sure your nails are well-groomed this winter with a few cuticle treatments a month. No, you don’t have to go get pampered at your local Nail Salon, but can use an array of regular items around your house. If you don’t have a lady friend in your close vicinity to ask for hers, go for the olive oil in your kitchen. Smooth on just a little on each fingertip and push the cuticle down with your other nail/finger. It will work just the same–it’s the “bro way.” But if you’re out of olive oil too, plus a girlfriend, then go for Burt’s Bee stuff:
Burt’s Bees little greasy and it doesn’t have multiple functions, but still good and inexpensive.
6. Foot Cream (yes! We’ll tell you why…)
Your feet harbor so much moisture while tucked inside your boots all day, which causes bacteria to form. Especially with those (possibly multiple) layers of socks, your feet suffer severe an overload of moisture followed by extreme cold. After washing with body scrub, rub thick hand/foot cream onto your feet, followed by a dose of the talic powder. These helps your “refresh” at the end of the day and retain the “healthy” moisture they need.
Did you know Teleportation is possible?
We’ll brainiacs, it is. The future is now. Researchers and scientists have effectively teleported a photon particle the equivalent distance of Philadelphia and New York, thereby proving the theory of entanglement. One of the labs is located in the Canary Islands, where scientists were hard at work teleporting two entangled photons across many miles. Of course, when one photon is teleported, it is dissolved/diminished entirely in the process.
How Would Einstein feel about this discovery? Do you think he’s a little (just a little!) perturbed at the findings…Don’t worry Albert, we’ll synthesize your theory of relativity with quantum physics soon…
This experiment is super important because until now we only thought of entanglement as some weird science thingy that didn’t quite make sense. Mind you, it still doesn’t make sense, but now we know it’s possible. The problem is, or the dilemma out there, is that photons have no real mass, so don’t go jumping to conclusions about teleporting actual cells (or their subsidiary parts) with mass just yet. (Yes, we know you were thinking the next direct step in quantum physics is teleportation of human beings, but that’s not quite the case… just yet, anyways).
The theory of entanglement, from a writer’s perspective, or rather in a writer’s voice, is simply this: two particles having a direct relationship with each other, so that if you do something do particle A, particle B instantaneously feels the effects and changes. Their entanglement functions because of their polarity differences–so if particle A is charged positively, particle B will be the opposite, and so on. So what happens when you literally copy a particle and send it over to its entangled mate? It becomes that other particle. Just like that. You’re here. And then BOOM. You’re there. (You, as in a photon, that is).
Of course, we’re talking about light particles here, so again, it doesn’t apply to the heavy stuff (aka anything with density). So here’s to keeping our blinging cufflink wrists crossed that the funding keeps coming in to the CERN and other quantum-experimental facilities, so that science can keep making these new discoveries. Who knows what the “now” will bring in the future.
