If you're on the hunt for that perfect engagement ring, then these top trends for 2018 might help you spot the diamond in the rough. Whether you're looking for a regal style fit for a princess, or want something a little more unusual, there's something for every kind of bride this year. We spoke to Grant Mobley, a gemologist and the Director at Pluczenik to find out what to look out for...
We've all had those convos with the girls when pondering what outfits to wear to the bar that weekend, which invariably will end with one/all of you saying: "I'll probably just go with a pair of jeans and a nice top, TBH". It's like a rite of passage in the life of any girl/woman and we're here for it. All day every day. Which is why we are literally bowing down to Missguided right now, tapping into our inner basic bitch by created the clothing section of dreams on its website.
We thought that we'd found our casserole dish match when Le Creuset released a limited edition 'Berry' (aka, 'pink') cookware collection. But then, we were nearly swayed to drop some serious £££ on their even newer (and potentially prettier) lavender line. And it looks as though we're just destined to own a whole load of Le Creuset products that we probably don't need, as we now want to stock up on this ridiculously cute heart-shaped collection.
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".
