I know I have been slacking big time on the blogging front, but I have a very good reason- 3 reasons actually. Ok, before I spill on where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing, I wanna know how you’ve been! How have the holidays been treating you?? Anyone going anywhere amazing for Christmas or a New Years?
Well hello, and almost Friday! How has everyone’s week been?? I’ve been insanely busy and I love it. I’ve been working like a crazy person on this upcoming project, I’m finalizing everything for another business I’m starting with a friend, and still trying to balance working part-time and blogging. Honestly though, I’m super happy I’ve been able to find my passions and work towards growing them. It’s an amazing feeling when you know you’re building an empire that’s going to be all yours.
Ok, so I know it’s insanely tempting to head to Nordstrom or Best Buy or Target today and take advantage of the sales, BUT, this year I am sharing all my fave stores to get Black Friday shopping done at, AND give back at the same time. Because, why not do some good by buying gifts that help others? We Wood Wooden Watches: Today, enjoy 30% off using the code ( BF30WW) on any watch of your choosing.

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".
