Exposed Seam: StaySharp Cuffs Giveaway! (2 winners) (U.S.) Ends 3/17 (Rafflecopter)

Combining a love for accessories with a passion for products that solve problems, Boston based company Exposed Seam offers a StaySharp Commuter Cuff for those who commute on bicycles. No longer necessary are rubber bands, rolled up pants, grease on clothing, or shoe laces caught in chains. StaySharp’s unique shape keeps pants clean and helps keep laces away from your gears and chain – plus riders won’t look like they are digging for clams.

Exposed Seam’s patent pending cuffs are made in the USA, out of Cordura® fabric produced in the USA. They are designed for the right leg, but can be worn on both sides, and its reflective trim on the back seam helps riders stay safe. One size fits most.

  • They are designed for the right leg, but can be worn on both sides.
  • Their unique shape keeps your pants clean and helps keep laces away from your gears and chain.
  • Reflective trim on the back seam helps you stay safe.
  • One size fits most.

The Creators:
Jonathan and Jenifer Stark began Exposed Seam out of a mutual love of cycling and style. Jonathan, who has commuted all over Boston by bike for many years engaged Jenifer's MassArt fashion design skills to solve his constant problem of ruined shoelaces and pants. Sympathetic to her husband's plight, the StaySharp Commuter Cuff was born.

The first production run was made right in the couple's live/work studio at the 300 Summer St. Artist's Building, and they have since grown their business to enlist the help of a local manufacturing facility in Fall River, MA. Jonathan and Jen are committed to keeping their cuffs made in the USA.

Jonathan's background in video development and marketing coupled with Jenifer's web design and e-commerce skills have also helped make Exposed Seam a home grown venture. They hope to continue to reach new cyclists each year and spread the word that doing what's good for your body and the planet never means having to sacrifice your style.

Exposed Seam cuffs come in six different colors (black, khaki, denim, slate, oxblood, and alert), and retail for $15.00, and they are available in a variety of stores in the U.S., Canada, and Australia and online at, Amazon, Square marketplace, and Etsy.

"¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés!" - Children's Music Album By Andrés Salguero Review!

RESTON, VA -- Award-winning family music favorite Andrés Salguero will release a new album -- an ebullient celebration of Latin culture titled ¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés! -- in April, to honor El Día de los Niños.
Andrés has posted a new music video below, based on the song "If I Had a Mariachi" from ¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés!
The "If I Had a Mariachi" video was shot at La Plaza Garibaldi (Mexico City's traditional home of mariachi) and other Mexico City locations, featuring local children and real mariachi musicians in a fantastic display of instrumental virtuosity.
A native of Colombia (now living in the Washington, DC area), Andrés Salguero brings an authenticity to his work that simply can't be matched by musicians who weren't born and raised south of the border. In ¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés! Andrés takes families on a fun-filled, high-energy musical tour of countries such as Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, and Argentina, with an emphasis on experiencing the real music of each region -- salsa, bachata, plena, mariachi, and more -- while learning mucho Español along the way.
Says Andrés Salguero, "As a musician who has played many types of Latin music, I don't want to make songs that may perhaps sound a little Latino but are, in reality, only a pastiche of 'Latin' sounds. I want to make songs that, on their own, are each great exemplars of the genre. I want grown-ups who are familiar with this music to say, 'This is the real stuff.'"
¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés! will be available online at,, and iTunes.

Our personal review of "Uno, Dos, Tres Con Andres":
My three children and I really had a lot of fun listening to Andres Salguero and his band play music that I grew up listening to in southern California. When our neighbors would have a get together or party, they would play music similar to the music on "Uno, Dos, Tres Con Andres." I am so blessed to be able to share this music with my children, and to teach them to listen to all kinds of music, and to embrace other cultures.

Our favorite songs are: "Hola Amigo," "Salta, Salta," "If I Had a Mariachi," "La Clave," "Love Song," and "O Papa." My children really love music, and we listen to all kinds and types. We are careful of the lyrics, as they are all under seven years of age. But they listen to just about anything. They can't get enough of Uno, Dos, Tres Con Andres! As soon as the CD ends, they ask me to play it again!

Disclosure: I received a copy of "¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés!" in exchange for my review post. No other compensation was exchanged or received.

Time To Go Bowling! #Sponsored #Ad

I had a chance to review a pair of the Elite Tribal Pink Flame Bowling Shoes from ($39.99 on the website). I really love the shoes! They are super comfortable and and the pink flames on the side make them cute! They are perfect for my feet, as my feet are wide around my toes, and these shoes didn't hurt my feet at all. 

We haven't had a chance to go bowling yet, but I will be signing my children up for the Free summer bowling program that they offer for the families here in Tennessee this year! My youngest daughter will be two years old, so she's the perfect age to start teaching her how to bowl!

The Elite Bowling shoes were stitched together very well, as you can see in the photo above, and the soles where thicker than my old bowling shoes, which I really liked! The thicker soles made them super comfortable. sells more than just bowling shoes, you can purchase bowling bags, bowling balls, bowling gloves, accessories, books and videos on bowling, and more! 

Disclosure: I received one pair of bowling shoes from in exchange for my review post. No other compensation was exchanged or received.

Check Out "My Life As A Dad," A New Web Series Dedicated to Dads!

Daddy & Company has developed a new web series called "My Life As A Dad" which will feature new celebrity dads discussing fatherhood each week.  
Nickell said he created the show to fill the void in support and guidance material for dads. "There are countless resources for moms at their disposal – from books and blogs to podcasts and shows, but dads are lacking the same resources geared toward their fathering needs," Nickell said. "We wanted to create a lighthearted, man-to-man show where dads and parents can tune in and see how celebrities and professional athletes whom they look up to handle the trials, tribulations and thrills of fatherhood at every stage."
Celebrity guests include Tom Arnold of "True Lies," Eric Christian Olson of "NCIS: Los Angeles," AJ Calloway, "Extra" correspondent, Kevin Frazier, co-host of "The Insider," Chris Paul of the LA Clippers and USA Olympic basketball team and the "90120" and "Sharknado" star and 2013 Daddy N Company "Daddy of the Year," Ian Ziering, all of whom have shared everything from their own parenting tips to their first thoughts following their child’s birth.

My Life As A Dad is the first show of its kind to delve into the lives of celebrity and professional athlete dads to get the answers to important questions like: how they feel about being a dad; what their parenting philosophies are; how they balance their family life with their professional life, and in some cases how they relate their unique upbringing to being a dad today. 
We want to know what their favorite activity to engage with their child is; their best piece of parenting advice, and even their first thought following their child’s birth.
Watch, listen, learn, and enjoy the show.
