A big part of living in New York City is the fashion. I love finding brands that are locally made & unique. Recently I was invited to a pop up shop for Solo New York, a locally designed urban lifestyle brand of travel gear. Solo New York are bags & cases that are made for people on the go whether you’re hiking a trail, heading to a business meeting or on the everyday hustle in NYC. Their bags are functional & stylish.

Wow do boys smell! It definitely is an embarrassing moment when you smell body funk in a classroom & find out it’s your kid that stinks. With the introduction to The Grossery Gang Putrid Power seemed right up his alley. The Grossery Gang is currently in it’s 3rd season on youtube. Here are a few tidbits.
August is National Family Fun Month and what better way to spend time with family but to travel. As you know, we love to take trips to different destinations & one of our all time favorites is Puerto Rico. It’s a mere 3 hour flight from New York with no U.S. passport required, it’s the perfect destination for sun & island fun that’s perfect for everyone. One of my favorite memories in Puerto Rico was swimming in the Bioluminescent bay in Vieques.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
