Today I'm collaborating with Garnet Hill to share their amazing cashmere collections. This cashmere throw has been keeping me toasty warm by the fire all season. My nuggets tend to snag all the blankets in our family room, but they know that this beautifully fringed throw is all mine. I've been wearing Garnet Hill cashmere for years and friends it is high quality. This year is no exception and the options are impeccably gorgeous, like this cable detail turtleneck sweater (on sale right now!).
Christmas around our house is filled with faith, family and food! We've started our Advent Calendar, a treasured piece that my mom made almost 40 years ago. The kids love opening the envelopes every day to read a Bible verse and then pin the cute little figure to the tree (check out Instagram ). We have many family traditions that we all look forward to including Christmas Eve candlelight ceremony followed by Christmas Eve dinner at my Aunt's house.
Well hello Monday... 2 weeks from today is Christmas!! Yikers - can you believe it? I have to say I'm probably more organized this year than ever. I'm usually the mom that waits until the last minute to buy gifts and my husband and I are wrapping them Christmas Eve :)... This year I have almost all my shopping done with just a few gifts left and all the gifts I have bought are wrapped - yippee skippee! This week I'm sharing all my gift guides.
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".
