What is on the other side of that door? Will I keep pushing? Should I keep trying to fit myself in the jamb? Will I continue forcing this metaphor? I couldn’t help it because, as one does, I’m having a lot of feelings and asking myself a lot of questions as 2018 begins. I hesitate to say it out loud, but I’m turning 50 this year. FIFTY. I keep thinking about the beginning of last year—I felt energetic and aggressively excited about making big changes.
Maybe it’s the millennial pink phenomenon influencing me, or maybe it’s having a little girl, but I’m starting to really like pink. And with this photoshoot, I have pretty much surrendered to the idea of pink being an acceptable color in my world. This is probably my favorite photoshoot of 2017, and it feels like a great way to ring in 2018. WEARING: Zara velvet dress, available and on sale for $23 (!!!) in size small only; similar ones are available here, here and here.
Finding eyeglasses that fit well, look awesome and perfect your vision is at least as difficult as finding a swimsuit you're happy with—possibly less emotionally fraught, but equally frustrating. Topology Eyewear aims to turn the experience around by facilitating custom prescription eyeglasses orders from your iPhone. Other companies offer online try-ons and at-home try-ons of stock eyewear, but no one else offers this level of customization.
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".
