If you’re lucky enough to live in New York City, you have a wide range of activities to do at literally any time of the day and night. During the holiday season, there’s an influx seasonal charm and events that bring in tourists from all over the world. One of our favorite things to do here at Cufflinksman is to enjoy an evening of burlesque.
Now if you’ve never been to a real Burlesque show, you may have the wrong idea. Burlesque is one of the most beautiful forms of dancing and late night entertainment for adults. While we wouldn’t recommend you take the kiddies to an after hours show, or any such show before the age of 16, for those cosmopolitan 20-80 something’s, it can be the perfect night out.
The Lessons Adults Can Learn from Five Children’s Movies
Finding Nemo. The ties between family transcend our own fears and love is superior to life’s challenges. A disability is just that, a disability, but one can always make up for it, and use it to his/her advantage. Plus, once in a while, you’ll run into a Gill figure in your life that will propel you to act out of your comfort zone and encourage you to adventure. Who is your Gill? Who is your Dory?
The Goonies. Outsiders can be cool too, perhaps even cooler than the “cool guys.” The sense of community, adventure, and general commradery in this film is a great lesson for all you jaded adults out there. “Down here it’s out time!” Mikey professes while in the wishing well. Chunk and the Giant dude show us unconditional love and that spirit transcends appearance. Plus you know when you were little you had a crush on Andie…
A Wrinkle in Time. Makes a practical use of the theory of entanglement, teleportation, and basic quantum physics through the guise of a child’s adventure story. Get yo science learn on.
Escape to Witch Mountain. Deals with the telepathy of twins, adventures on a mountain, conceptions of seclusion and yea…fun-ness.
Lion King. The prophetic, life altering statement: Hakuna Matata. Concept of family rivalry, childhood love and honor, guilt and shame that would put Woody Allen to rest, and the necessity of an inter-cultural community.
Tangled. What you’ll learn: Your parents aren’t always right. Sometimes they are very wrong. Adult vindication, finally! Hair= power. Men should need to climb, etc.
Tootsies Children Dance wear: Children ballet shoes and tap shoes from Leos Dancewear from toddler sizes to older child size 3 and girl dancewear from toddler size 2T to older child size 12
Series Two: The Art and Craft of Shaving
Here’s an “Art of Shaving” exclusive from one of our favorite readers, Rafael Quinones. He’d like to share his take on the craft and mystery of shaving…
In a recent interview, self-titled cufflinks connoisseur Raf “The Man” Quinones says the following about his shaving regime:
“I always do the cold water rinse and use the Alum Block.”
“Alum is a mineral that has been used as an antiseptic since the days of ancient Egypt. It’s alcohol-free, but it doesn’t feel that way. It will instantly stop all bleeding from a cut because it naturally closes the pores and eliminates any bacteria, so nothing can get infected. It stings a lot, or a little, depending on how you shaved…but at least it lets you know what areas you were too rough on. Just rinse it off after a couple seconds.”
After the right shave, your skin should feel silky smooth, like these Silk Knot Cufflinks
What else? Did you know: Rose water helps!
“While I’m showering and shaving, I keep a bottle of rose water in the fridge. This gets it nice and cool. Then I spray the cool rose water all over my face, which feels refreshing and soothing—but also the rose water acts like a natural toner for your skin, keeping it moisturized.”
What’s your last step in your shaving routine?
“Lastly, I use an alcohol-free after shave balm to moisturize, and for keeping the facial skin smooth. It also helps prevent ingrown hairs and skin irritation after the shave.
You don’t want to see ED Hardy on your face after shaving…
Oh! Last thing—I’m sure you saw it on the videos, but DO NOT USE TOO MUCH PRESSURE while shaving. The razor is really sharp and you will cut yourself if you press down. The razor is heavy, and at the right angle it does all the work itself—all you need to do is guide it.”

A Day in the Life of a Cufflink
Our Guest Speaker: Mr. Gold Stud Cufflink
Ever wonder what your cufflinks are thinking? What if they could talk? What would those tiny little accessories say to you? What would they say about themselves? We recently scored an exclusive interview with one of our long-lost cufflinks, who was sold a few years ago to a now-famous cigar-smoking billionaire. His subsequent cufflink set, that is, Mr. Gold Stud Cufflink, arose during our client’s rise to fame, and that is precisely why he was willing to open up and tell us what a day in the life is really life…
Say what?!?! Mr. Gold Stud Cufflink
6:30am: Beat out Mr. Royal Blue Stripes today. Ha! That’s five times this month I got picked over him. Boy will he be mad at the end of the night. So much for “blue is always in style…” What a lame-o.
His price: $49.95
7am: Got a nice water drizzle from the sink when Mr. Fashionable was brushing his teeth. Hey, it’s alright I’m made of pure gold anyway…well. Not really pure solid gold, but at least I’m gold pated. Right? Guys? Back there in the jewelry box?
9:30am: Cool, no rust stains from the tooth-brush water drizzle action. Must be because I’m made from the best! 🙂 Thanks Cufflinksman.
11am: I know I look good and all but I’m not getting enough attention from these other dudes. Business meetings don’t do much for my confidence. We’ll see how the afternoon goes…
2pm: Still shining! All day, everyday baby.
2:15pm: Ran into a sweet looking, shiny Ms. Pink Lady Cufflinks in the hallway today. Wowza! Does she have style…I wish I had mother of pearl accents on my belly too. She makes my Torpedo back Closure tremble…
Mmm…Ms. Pink Mother of Pearl Cufflinks, come on over to Mr. Stud!
5pm: Spaghetti sauce dribbled on my frontal etchings. It’s okay though, as long as he wipes me off…
5:20pm: Still haven’t been wiped off…
5:45pm: Smelling like spaghetti…
6pm: Looks like I’m going home with sauce on me. Ah well, the night’s still young!
7pm: Scraped my face a little on the bar stool, but other than that I’m good. Ran into a rather snobby “Trust me, I’m a Doctor” Cufflink. I think he thought he was better than me, but, I know I cost more, so…little does he know. He’s probably not even a doctor.
9pm: <3 Thinking about Ms. Pink Lady Cufflinks. <3
10pm: Ready to go home. C’est la vie in a day in the life. Mr. Fashionable is talking about baseball with a guy wearing a Yankees Cufflink Set. This could quite possibly go on all night…
11:12pm: Back home, back in my box. The other cufflinks are super jealous. Loving life, got my bling on and the spaghetti sauce was eventually wiped off. Another day, another shirt.
The Game of Thrones has had a huge impact on modern programming over the past year. It seems like everyone is talking about the science fiction/fantasy/epic show on HBO and it just gets better every week. Right when you think you “know” a character, or fall in love just a little, they are stripped away from you, like in the case of Ned Stark. (Poor Ned). So as weekly, loyal fans, how can you show your support for Winterfell and King’s Landing? Maybe your loyalty lies with the Dothraki’s or perhaps Daenerys Targaryen herself (played by the stunning Emilia Clarke)…
And what about our beloved bastard, Jon Snow? Really, Dani and Jon should just get togetheracross the narrow sea and procreate already–they are positively too stunning to not. Alas, we’re following the season via HBO and haven’t read the novels, so please don’t spoil anything for us.
Do you support the Dragons? What will happen in the next episode? Will Dani marry that rich merchant or follow her adviser? What will become of the little Arya? Who will become king? The suspense is just too much. In the meantime, show your Game of Thrones pride by looking through our immense collection of cufflinks, featuring swords, dragons, magic, coins, and more…
