If you were to open my bathroom drawer, you will find bags and bags filled with beauty samples. I live for the bonus points at Sephora so I can test out to see what works and what doesn’t. Let me honest, I also just love free stuff. After much trial and error, I’ve found some products I really, really love. (side note, I don’t make a dime off any of these products. I just really like them.) Heat Protectant: My hair is so damaged from all the blow-drying and curling I have to do for my job.
I said my next post was going to be about my beauty/skin care products. But then my husband opened his mouth, and I had to write about it. Yesterday he turns to me and says “Babe, can we get a maid?” Sure honey. I would also like a super model body and a white couch that my toddler won’t stain. None of those are happening. The day before he asked for two 32 inch tvs to go next to the 75 inch tv he already has in his man cave. Why? So he could watch mutliple football games at the same time.
It’s been three days, and the drop-offs haven’t gotten any easier. He’s fine when we get out of the car. He’s fine as we walk to school. But the moment the teacher pulls him into the classroom, and I’m forced to leave, he has a fit. The whole process is very rushed. The teachers don’t want us to walk them in and say goodbye. They just take him and whisk him away. It’s very jarring. But they’ve done this a lot more than I have, so I’ll let them be the experts.
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".
