If you're still fighting freezing temperatures in your part of the country, we're guessing next winter is the last thing you want to think about. But now might actually be the perfect time to get a jump-start on all things merry and bright. Home Depot is having an amazing sale on Christmas decorations—yes, in March! While it's still pretty early, certain Christmas items are on sale for up to 75 percent off. Why not snag those pre-lit trees you've been meaning to replace since three Christmases ago?
Pre-dry your hair with a diffuser while scrunching the hair from the ends toward the scalp. Once your hair is half-dry, separate it into three sections. Picture a line starting at one ear, going around the crown and ending at your other ear: Two sections will be on either side of your part and the third section will be the entire back. Starting from the back of your head, take 1-inch sections of hair. Twist each section, bottom first, around your finger and let that hair fall, says Gambrell.
If you have a serious plant obsession, get ready to fall in love with artist Lili Arnold's beautiful cactus prints. Thanks to a printmaking technique called block printing (it resembles stamping), Arnold creates gorgeous prints of cacti, succulents, and flowers. "My inspiration for each piece comes from being exposed to something beautiful in the natural world," Arnold says. "For the past couple years, I have been intrigued by cacti and all the intricate textures and colors that come with them."
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".
