I was out to dinner with some girlfriends a few weeks ago and I arrived a few minutes late. I slid into the booth and jumped right in to the conversation. Then, upon leaving, my friend Ashley said, “OH I didn’t even notice your hair was braided in the back!” so I joked about it being a surprise braid hairstyle. What I like the most about this is it is the easiest way to style your hair when you either don’t feel like styling it OR it’s too dirty to wear down.
Earlier this summer, I finally FINALLY took a stab at making homemade pasta. And let me tell you, it was so much fun. I love doing new things like that in the kitchen, and since my first attempt I’ve made pasta a few more times. I’m actually hoping to have a “make it yourself” pasta night with some girlfriends in the near future because the whole process was so much fun. The recipe for pasta is very basic.
Vitamin C serum is one of those products that I knew I should be using years ago but I never started. I think it fell into the category of “I’m not sure I’ll actually see a difference using it” so I never bothered. After my facial in August, my esthetician recommended a serum that had vitamin c along with a few other ingredients in it and I really liked it. The smell was slightly off putting, but in general I felt like it hydrated my skin and made it feel a bit tighter and firmer.
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".
