Labor Day is weekend kicks off tomorrow and that usually means backyard BBQs, poolside soirees and a well-deserved three-day weekend.

For this Labor Day, we’ve come up with a list for you to make your weekend a little bit easier and a lot more fun.
Weddings are a beautiful occasion to celebrate your union with your loved one in front of friends and family, but they can be quite daunting to plan for.

Cutline Experiences the Magic that is Pop-Up Magazine!
Apr 19, 2016
Last week, a few Cutliners went to check out Pop-Up Magazine in Oakland to see what all the hype was about. Pop-Up, billed as a live magazine, is a one-night event that includes live music, photography, art, and incredible story tellers.

These 11 “magazine” features had us feeling so many different emotions: from uncontrollable laughter to tears of empathy and everything in between. The show was full of wisdom, lessons learned and reminders to appreciate life, culture and our roots. While still respecting the wishes of the producers to keep the content of the show a true surprise for attendees, we wanted to recap a few big (non-spoiler!) takeaways.
