We can all agree that this was a year for the books, right? While it was one rollercoaster of a ride, there were also some pretty incredible moments throughout the year. For the world, and for us. With 2017 coming into our rear view mirrors, the Cutline Crew took a moment to reflect on this past year and celebrate some of our favorite moments. From bringing not one... not two... but three (!) new bundles of little boy joy and life into the world (shout out to Mason, Beckham and Welles!) , to traveling all around the globe, and even to finding new fitness inspiration, please join us as we recap our year! And as we sign off and head into 2018, we hope that you have a wonderful holiday season.
If you’re like us, you’re also having a hard time believing how fast this year has flown by. The past eleven months have been filled with amazing opportunities, along with laughs and joy from the wonderful people around us. And although it has also been a hard year for many, there are still so many things to be grateful for this year. With Thanksgiving this week, we feel it’s only right we take a moment to look back in order to appreciate and celebrate what we’re thankful for this holiday season.
Our New York office happens to be housed in the wonderful WeWork Bryant Park location, and we love all of the special things they do for us as members -- that includes celebrating one of my favorite days of the year, May 4, aka Star Wars Day! Among the perks today: Princess Leia cinnamon rolls, popcorn and snacks, and of course, movies streaming from a projector! It got me thinking about the Star Wars story and how there are so many things you can learn and apply to your career in PR (or any other field), as well as life in general. Here’s a few lessons that come to mind: Read more
A couple of weeks ago, the Cutline team pulled off an incredible surprise baby shower for me and my tiny growing family. Not only did they pull off the surprise, but they also gifted us with several thoughtful baby items. One, in particular, stood out from the rest: DIY ABC art. Each Cutliner took a letter of the alphabet, drew a picture of something that started with the letter, laminated it and BOOM, instant DIY art for our itty-bitty nursery. I loved it - crafting is my thing! Read more

WeWork is a coworking office space that provides a shared workspace and community for smaller startups and businesses. Launched in New York City in 2010, the company has quickly expanded across 28 cities, and 91 locations!
#CutlineNYC has been a member of WeWork Bryant Park for a few years, and we absolutely love our beautiful office, which overlooks Bryant Park (perfect for enjoying the spring sun). We also enjoy the Blue Bottle Coffee shop on the first floor, as well as Lady M cake shop next door! As WeWork members, we get to be part of an awesome community of smart startups, freelancers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses, and enjoy many perks that WeWork provides. Below are a few reasons why I adore working in a WeWork space:
Ability to work from any WeWork location (30 in NYC alone)!
WeWork members can work from any common room in any of its 91 locations around the country, including Austin, Chicago, Miami, and San Francisco. It’s nice to know that I have the option to reserve a meeting room or work from any of the WeWork locations when I’m traveling or working remotely. Even when I’m not traveling, I can take advantage of the 30 New York City locations and work from convenient locations around Manhattan between meetings. Plus, WeWork just opened its first Queens, NY location in Astoria, which is a huge plus because it’s within walking distance from my apartment!
Beautifully decorated spaces (and no need to worry about maintenance)
Each WeWork office is nicely designed and decorated, as if they came straight out of an interior design magazine! I specifically love the second floor of the Bryant Park building, because it’s an open, airy space filled with leather couches and comfy chairs. It’s perfect for unwinding with my fellow NYC Cutliners after a long day in the office, or to take breaks in between. Also, WeWork is managed by amazing community managers who coordinate everything from solving tech issues to making sure that there’s coffee on each floor.
Insightful and fun events for members every week
We love participating in WeWork’s fun member events, such as a Vino and Vinyasa yoga session, Taco Tuesdays, “Treat Yo Self” events with cool vendors and massage chairs, and workshops hosted by fellow WeWork members. There’s always something to sign up for each week, and it’s a great way to get to know other companies and entrepreneurs in the building!
Exclusive benefits and discounts for members
WeWork partners with cool vendors like Equinox, One Medical, FlyWheel, and General Assembly, to offer discounts for members. It’s a great way to try new services that I otherwise would not normally sign up for. Personally, I’m super excited to use my member benefits to sign up for a new gym this spring!
WeWork truly embraces its #DoWhatYouLove mantra by offering members a comfortable and efficient space to get our creative juices going, and encouraging members to share ideas and network. I encourage you to check out the nearest WeWork office if you’re looking for a new office space!
Great Scott! I’ve been a fan of the Back to the Future trilogy for as long as I can remember and pretty excited for today, Oct. 21, 2015, to finally get here -- aka, Back to the Future Day! In case you’re not familiar, in part two of the trilogy, Doc Brown, Marty and Jennifer travel 30 years into the future (today), in order to stop an event from happening that could ruin their futures. Pretty heavy, right?
Ninety-five years ago, every woman in this country was (finally!) granted the right to vote with the passage of the 19th Amendment, and we’ve been celebrating Women’s Equality Day ever since. But as history has shown us, we still have so much more to fight for!
To commemorate this very special achievement, the Cutline Crew put together a list of the lady figures in our lives who inspire us to be better on the daily. Check it out, and let us know who yours are, too!
