Last year was a whirlwind - many challenges, surprises and milestones. While we regroup and refresh, and get ready for the year ahead, the Cutline Crew took a moment to share what they’re most looking forward to in 2019.
This year, I’m going to be a dancing hot dog for Halloween
Oct 26, 2017
If you thought 2017 was being extra, then you really haven’t seen anything yet. I stumbled on either the most hilarious or facepalm-worthy news, when TechCrunch reported that a costume of infamous dancing hot dog is available on Amazon. If you don’t already know, the dancing hot dog debuted on Snapchat as an augmented reality filter earlier this year.
I know I’m not alone when it comes to feeling that midday slump when it feels like my concentration and productivity take a nosedive. After working at my desk all morning, sometimes my body and my brain need a quick refresher! There are endless amounts of ways to take a quick break, but I’ve listed a few of my favorite remedies to get me back and focused.
When I started at Cutline almost two weeks ago, I promised my parents I would make them proud. How, you might ask? By being the best intern I could be! I’ve had different experiences in various fields, and I want to share a few simple keys to being more than just “a good intern.” I’ve learned from experience what has worked and, quite frankly, what hasn’t.
Here is a scenario that often becomes reality for my boyfriend and me: We wake up early on a Sunday morning with the intention of enjoying our favorite weekend activity, brunch! We get ready for about an hour, only to realize we have yet to pick where we’re going. We then spend another hour attempting to compromise on a place, and by the time we leave we feel defeated and simply #hangry. Learn from my mistakes, and check out my top three sites and apps below to help you pick somewhere to chow down!
From dishing on the latest novel in our “books” Slack channel, to chatting over cookies in our biannual book club, Cutliners are known for our love of books. To celebrate National Read a Book Day, we’ve compiled a list of our most favorite books. Hope this inspires you to sit back, grab a book, and read the day away!
From cold brew to drip to espresso at Starbucks, Dunkin’, or that neighborhood shop you’ve fallen in love with, we all have specific ways to enjoy our cup of coffee. After four years of decline, coffee drinking is back on the rise, according to the NCA National Coffee Drinking Trends 2017 report.
Coffee is undeniably the go-to pick-me-up in the morning for many Americans, but if you’re looking to change up your routine or avoid coffee-shop lines, we’ve come up with some ways you can get your day kickstarted without the extra caffeine.
In our team meeting at the end of every month, one Cutliner is invited to share a final thought. It’s a cool way to inspire and motivate the team and help set the tone for the following month. I’m always astounded by the creativity and different interpretations that are shared. Some people read stories, others play songs or share lyrics -- the only constant is that it’s always different. Last week, Liz left us with a quote from Alice Parker that hit home for me -- “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” I just loved it and it made me think about the power of a good self pep talk.
Summer Solstice is officially here, and it’s the perfect time to make sure your summer soundtrack is up to speed. To celebrate the season, we put together a few of our favorite hits in Cutline’s Sounds of Summer playlist, available on Spotify, which we'll continue to update! Here’s what we’re jamming to and why: Read more
