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.
You’re grandmother can’t always be around to lull you into a mid-afternoon nap when you have the sniffles. You still have to manage to get up at the crack of dawn, fight traffic (and not fellow subway riders), and make it through the day. The flu season is coming, or more precisely, it’s already here. When you feel that body ache arising, here are some remedies to dull the seasonal beast:
DRINK TEA. Go to the nearest Chinatown and buy tea in bulk. You can get restaurant quality tea for under $4. We like to mix Oolong, Green tea, and two teaspoons of honey for a cold-remedy mix.
DRINK CLEAR FLUIDS. You’re mother always said this one, didn’t she? Well she was right. Cleanse the body of its toxins by flushing out your system. Replenish your body’s water content constantly, keep everything fresh, hence the emphasis on clear liquids.
DRINK WARM WHISKEY. Yes, that was no typo. Contradicting our previous tip, one of Grandma’s tricks, before lozengers and NyQuil, was good old fashioned whiskey.
RECIPE: Boil Water. Add fresh ginger slices and cloves. Steep Chamomile tea in water. Add one shot of Whiskey. Add a few teaspoons of honey.
You’ll definitely sleep well!
The weather has been, to put it mildly, moody. First it’s hot, then it’s cold, then it’s warm with a breeze…Over the past two weeks we’ve been exposed to these weather extremes and they’re not the best for our body regulations. BUNDLE UP. It’s better to be slightly warm and to sweat out toxins, rather than keep them swarming around inside you. The cold air chills and drifts are bad news for muscle aches and head colds. So keep the body and attached muscles happy and warm this season.
And as an added bonus, here are some sweet coats we’ve found for this season. This barn coat is ultra cool and relaxed, and the “mustard” color is the hottest color this season.
Another trend? VESTS. Whowouldathunk? Keeps the arms free, chest warm, and can be paired with almost any casual dress. They also comein some pretty fun colors, like bright orange. This is a toned down version from Ralph Lauren:
