I’m excited to share my first video of 2018 with you! This year will have a lot more video content (I have a big to-do list of your suggestions) and today’s video is all about products that I’ve never tried before. I didn’t want to just talk about them to the camera (I always find that a bit boring) so I used them in a quick GRWM. If you have any video requests for the year, please share them in the YouTube video comments – Enjoy!
You guys know by now that I’m a massive fan of the incredibly innovative company, Dyson (exhibit A, B, C). They take common household items and completely reinvent them – they don’t just change a few things and repackage. It’s very refreshing in an industry where a lot of “new” things are just refigured. Whenever people ask me to compare the Supersonic hair dryer with a regular hair dryer, I honestly can’t – they’re two different entities (and I’m not just saying that).
The holidays are around the corner (I almost cannot believe it) and whether you love them or hate them, you’re probably going to need to know how to look good for some kind of party or event. I actually love doing makeup over the holidays because I feel like you can be a little bit extra (red! green! glitter!) and I did just that with my day to night statement makeup. I tend to choose one feature to highlight (eyes or lips), but am becoming more adventurous with makeup.
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".
