Kellee Maize — Aligned Archetypes Album Review and Giveaway: Go Pittsburgh! 10 winners US—CLOSED

If I asked you to name a hip-hop artist from Pittsburgh, you might be hard-pressed to come up with a name.  Now, how about a female hip-hop artist.  Even harder, right?

Into the blank, you can insert: Kellee Maize.  If you read through Kellee Maize’s bio you find that she moved to Pittsburgh as a teen.  Went to college at the University of Pittsburgh.  Worked for a Pittsburgh paper and eventually became an Events and Promotions Director.  Along with various personal life struggles she says she found an outlet through writing and music.  She has also founded a socially conscience, female owned and operated company called “Nakturnal” that has turned into a leading marketing and events organization for the area.  There is much more to this story.  Read on here: Kellee’s Bio.   While you’re there, explore her “archetypes” pictured throughout this post.

Now Kellee Maize is the #1 female hip hop artist on in the last month and has been in the top 10 on for 6 months!  Try something for me will ya?  Go to  and google “female rapper”.  See what comes up.  Go ahead, I’ll wait…..

What did you see?  Kellee Maize right, as number 1?  If you didn’t, you didn’t do the search.  That’s ok, I’m happy you trust me 🙂

Kellee Maize’s album Aligned Archetypes is a collection of music influenced with House, Reggae, R&B, Hip Hop, and more along with her strong female lyrics.  Her spiritualism also spices her music.

You can download the entire album FREE on

SmartknitKIDS Seamless Socks Review and Giveaway–CLOSED

Seamless socks sounded like a good idea to me. I know sometimes I get that pair of socks where the seem along the toes is kind of bulky and actually rubs on my toes. So when I had the opportunity for my kids to try SmartKnitKIDS Seamless Sensitivity socks I thought, why not?

Their slogan “No Seams to Bug YA!”  When I got them in the mail I told my boys that they each got a pair of socks I wanted them to try on so I could review them. I didn’t give them any details as to why they might be different than regular socks.  My 8 year old put his on and said “Mom these socks are really soft.  Can I wear them around the house?”  Of course, I told him yes.  Then my 6 year old came in and I had him put them on .  He wore them for the rest of the night.  I also had a pair for the baby (my 15 mo old).  I was surprised at how well they fit and stayed on him.  Even through his crawling, creeping around on the furniture, and approximately 15 trips up and down the steps that he so enjoys doing.

SmartKnitKIDS was kind enough to send a pair for each of my boys and sent a different color for each.  My oldest got white, my 6 year old got Navy blue, and the baby got black.

I already told you that the SmartKnitKIDS Seamless Sensitivity socks have well…no seams but they also have a “no heel” design.  Why?  Because it keeps little ones from outgrowing their socks so quickly . The “Non-binding Halo Top” won’t pinch or bind.

As an Occupational Therapy Assistant I also see the benefit in these for children with Autism or other Sensory disorders.  Often things likes seams, tags, backing for appliques can distracting and uncomfortable for a child with a Sensory disorder.  SmartKnitKIDS Seamless Sensitivity socks would be a wonderful addition to a child with special needs wardrobe.  

Where to buy:  You can check here on the SmarKnitKIDS website for retailers–  

Or you can click on the pick below to find them on

Seamless Sensitivity Socks

Review Summary:  At $7 a pair the socks may seem expensive.  The fact that they will last through several sizes is a plus.  My kids loved the comfort of the socks.  I loved that I didn’t have to keep putting these socks back on the baby like I do with other socks.  For a child with special needs these socks could be invaluable.

SmartKnitKIDS is offering one of my readers 3 pair of their own SmartKnitKIDS Seamless Sensitivity Socks.  US/CAN
Mandatory Entry:   Visit SmartKnitKIDS and tell me in a comment below, what color and style you think you would like to try for you little one.
