When you’re a new mom, something as simple as packing your baby’s first diaper bag can be cause for anxiety. Trust me, I’ve been there. The whole point of packing a diaper bag for baby when you’re ready to take them on the go is not just to have spare diapers but to make sure you’re prepared for anything. Whether it’s a blowout diaper, a cold restaurant or a hungry baby – here is my new mommy’s guide to diaper bag essentials.
So a few months back, I attended the New York Baby Expo and I got the opportunity to meet and interact with brand reps for hundreds of baby brands. Though I’ve attended this expo in the past, this one seemed to be overwhelmingly massive with brands and products around every corner and expectant parents overflowing. One of the first tables to catch my eye was Mina Kay Bags. First of all, the founder herself is adorable.
I’ve always been a Disney girl – through and through. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been twirling and dancing and singing along to my favorite tunes from films like “The Little Mermaid”, “Beauty & The Beast” and “Aladdin”. I’ve always fancied myself as special as the princesses in those movies and I have always dreamed big. My parents played a very integral part in allowing me to dream beyond my current circumstances by encouraging me to work hard to accomplish my dreams.
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".
