Cockadoodle doo!

Time to wake up and smell the wet, hot garbage. Summer is coming in hotsy totsy, Washington. So, gird your face wipes, baby powder, and Evian spray, because it's about to get real hot and sticky up in the Swamp. If you’re an average gal who starts dumping sweat the moment the temperature breaks 60 degrees, like me, then you’re also plagued with the looming anxiety of staying relatively “fresh” over the course of the next 4 months...

What's in the Bag: Little Tripper

Posted on Mar 29, 2018 4:05:32 PM

Spring. Alive. Awakening. Baby animals. Birth. Bloom. Blossom. Born. Bright. Bunny. Cheerful. Change. Clean. Crisp. Delightful. Daisy. Daffodil. Duckling. Eggs. Flower. Fresh. Garden. Grass. Grow. Happy. Hatch. Hyacinth. Iris. Incredible. Joyful. Light. Lovely. LITTLE TRIPPER... Oh, hey. Didn’t see you there. You caught me doing a little exercise us writers do, called “word association.” I’ve got spring on the brain, in case you couldn’t tell, and I think I was having an A-Ha Moment (blessed be Oprah). We have a triple threat coming up this Sunday with Easter, Deb’s Birthday, and April Fool’s Day. My heavens, how can we possibly cover them all? We can’t! So, we won’t. It would be so long winded, and the children would cry. We want the children to smile, and if there’s one person who can make the children smile, it’s our in-house birthday girl, Deborah Waterman Johns. You want your children to smile, right? Of course, right!

What's in the Bag: Overpacker

Posted on Mar 9, 2018 4:52:42 PM

A wise man once said, “Oh oh oh oh it's international love. You're international, so international.” Some of you may know this man as “Mr. Worldwide” or “Mr. 305.” I prefer to call him by his birth name, “Pitbull.” I can’t think of a more fitting quotation for our spring break remix of “What’s in the Bag." Come fly with me and our resident travel-bae’s, Laura Doherty and Charlotte Allen. They’ve crammed their Overpacker’s with all sorts of essentials for their trips to Dubai and Miami, respectively. What a time to be alive. Prepare for liftoff.

Dale.

What's in the Bag: Tiny Packages

Posted on Feb 9, 2018 5:20:43 PM

I’m an old-fashioned girl, I believe in romance.  Who doesn’t like being wined and dined by a local suitor, going for a moonlit jaunt around the National Mall, and bequeathed a solitary rose at the end of the night? In spite of my Swift-ian reverence for romance, I bah-humbug my way through February, scoff at every Zales commercial, and eye-roll down the Walgreens candy aisle. Recently, Valentine's Day hasn’t really been my bag. This year, however, something made me change my tune. I’ve denounced my Scrooge-y convictions to become a Valentine pundit. If you’re like me and long to be moved by the V-Day spirit, let Deb Waterman Johns be your guide. Watch out.  She’s about to twirl on you, Valentine’s haters. 
*No, roses, actually.  I, like bae-Chris Harrison, will be forever triggered by rose bestowing of any kind.

What's in the bin?

Posted on Jan 2, 2018 1:05:19 PM

Hey, hello, hi!

We couldn’t be more stoked to shred into 2018 like a fresh pow. We intend to feel refreshed, re-energized and reorganized. Several of our Team members have written testimonials about what’s in their...bins! Yep, bins. If you didn’t know we had storage, well, now you do. Congrats!  Don’t worry, this isn’t a sermon about “new year, new you,” or a making SCOUT part of your list of resolutions (not suggesting you have to have any, but you get the gist). This isn’t a resolution.

It’s a lifestyle.

What's in the Bag: Getaway

Posted on Dec 13, 2017 10:35:49 AM

We all know December can be a little intense, or "so extra," as the millennials say. Do you have a dormant sensation of heartburn, onset by all the cured meats and blue cheeses you've been hoovering at post-work cocktail parties? Is your gout flaring up? Does holiday shopping trigger images of yourself, literally lighting money on fire? Have you recently experienced any rage blackouts? If you’d answer “yes” to any of these questions, then you may have a case of the December Scaries/winter doldrums/Mercury in retrograde.

So, what do you say? Wanna get away...?

What's in Megan's bag?

Posted on Oct 30, 2017 5:06:36 PM

Drink umbrella.  Check.

We're pouring bags, our hearts out, and drinks (kidding, this is a professional interview!  Who do you think we are?!) with my favorite SCOUT Media Manager, Megan Principe.  I love Megan. You want to know Megan and how she does it all.  So, she's opening up her go-to bag, so you can open your ~mind~

What's in Becky's bag?

Posted on Sep 15, 2017 6:00:32 PM

At first glance, deciding upon an interviewee for the debut of our "What’s in the bag?" column, may sound daunting. But for us, the obvious first choice was Becky Quinn.  If you’re a fan of go-getter, mission driven, yet, laid-back women, who also happen to be the life of the party, then you’ve got to meet our friend in SCOUT, BQ. We’ve had Becky on the brain since she graciously hosted a few of our team members at her Charlottesville home during our recent photo shoot. Our team was initially introduced to Becky as a close friend of Deb’s, our Chief Creative Officer, and a loyal customer of the SCOUT brand. We’ve also spent countless mornings blissfully snacking away on bowlfuls of granola from her local business, BQgranola. Somehow, Becky found time away from being a DC local entrepreneur, caretaker to 3 dogs, mother of UVA sophomore, Eliza, and attending a Sting concert at the Wolf Trap, to come chat with us at our headquarters. Our eye-opening chat with Becky revealed to us the importance of a bag carrying more than just stuff...
