Hi Everyone! It’s Matt here. I know there has been a lot of questions about what equipment we use when we shoot content so I thought this would be good timing for this type of post. We tend to be simpletons when it comes to what we carry with us on a daily basis but we are beginning to expand our roster of equipment. I have linked all products at the end in case you want to check them out for yourself. I take 99% of all of the photos taken both on the blog and on social media.
Today I’m going to share my 5 winter wardrobe staples. These are pieces that are interchangeable to create a number of looks whether you’re headed to the office, relaxing on the weekend, or going out to meet up with up with friends. These are also the types of pieces that you can invest in and wear them for years to come. They act as the foundation of your closet. You can incorporate trends as the years go on but these pieces will definitely still be in your closet.
I get a lot of questions about my hair care routine. It took me a long time to figure out which styles and products work for me. I’ve learned a few things to extend my time between salon visits and to keep my hair healthy. These tips are easy things you can incorporate into your existing routine. Before we get to those tips, I included a little something extra below. I’m trying something a little different with this post and adding an additional touch.
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".
