Let’s be honest — hosting an event can be a scary experience for your wallet. There’s the cost of the food, decor, servingware, and maybe even extra tables and chairs. Here at Brit + Co, we’ve hosted many Friendsgivings over the years. From college dorm rooms, to one-bedroom apartments, to houses, we’ve squeezed our friends into all types of places. The key to a successful, low-cost Friendsgiving is keeping it potluck-style and taking advantage of discount stores and paper products to create decor.
With only two weeks until Thanksgiving, it's officially time to devour all things pumpkin, including desserts, breads, and adult beverages. After all, this autumn goodness won't roll around again for another year. But why limit your pumpkin obsession to only what's edible when this seasonal staple can also take center stage in your holiday decor?
It's no wonder the natural makeup movement has been growing in popularity. Not only do good-for-you ingredients work wonders to cure pesky seasonal problems, but you can also DIY many of these products at home. To help fight the return of chapped lip season, we decided to mix up our own ultra soothing pumpkin spice-inspired lip gloss. Get ready to apply this all winter long. Create a double boiler by placing the glass measuring cup into a pot filled with two inches of water.
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".
