I learned something important this weekend. Some holiday traditions are just not realistic with a 1:2 ratio ages 5 and under. Case and point: Zoo lights. Dark, crowds, cacti, wagon, hills, and a two year old not wanting to sit in the wagon...?. But hey, I tried it. ? So, I am keeping things simple this year including decorations. I am not attempting to put lights up outside. I put a wreath out and I am calling it good.
When you think of the homes Chip and Joanna Gaines flip on Fixer Upper, your first thought might not be COLOR. Farmhouse decor, creative design elements, and special accents, sure. But in the final season of Fixer Upper, we couldn’t help but notice the couple bringing more bold pops of color to the forefront of their designs. So when I caught up with the HGTV stars at a Magnolia Home paint media event hosted by KILZ, I knew I needed to get for their tips on adding more color into your home.
vodka-soaked gummy worms This cocktail is almost like the adult version of dirt pudding cups. Soaking gummy worms in vodka takes almost zero prep. All you have to do is combine the gummies and spirit in a bowl, but beware. Let traditional gummies sit starting for an hour. Any longer and they’ll get gelatinous and will be inedible (trust us!). Soak less porous, themed gummies like the snakes you see here, for around two hours.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
