This summer I flew to Colorado for the week to explore six cities in five days. It was my first time in Colorado with an ambitious travel itinerary but I had so much fun! The weather was refreshingly cool (an average of 80 with no humidity), the landscapes were beautiful, and the food was delicious. I traveled with The Travel Bite, Colorful Foodie, and Chelsea Bird with Colorado Front Range to Boulder, Estes Park, Loveland, Greeley, Fort Collins, and Longmont.
Fall weather isn’t officially here in Austin yet but I’m so ready for it! Zuppa Toscana at Olive Garden used to be my guilty pleasure when I was little. Mmmm… warm breadsticks and creamy, hearty soup. Zuppa Toscana can be really heavy with the pork sausage and thick cream so I’ve created a skinnier/healthier version. Honeysuckle White just launched their new Sweet Italian Sausage. I immediately thought this would be a great substitute for Zuppa Toscana.
Did you get your teeth straightened when you were little? So did I! Did you wear the retainer afterwards? Neither did I. 12 years later my teeth are now crooked and I’ve been self-conscious with my smile. While researching, I came across Smile Direct Club as an affordable and easy option.

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".
