It is no secret that Stanford Shopping Center is one of our favorite malls. We love bringing our kids there and when it was time to take our annual Santa photo this year, we knew exactly where to go. The Santa Photo Experience at Stanford is a little different from the ones we’ve seen at other places because they have something what’s called “Happily Ever Laughter.” It is a special whimsical entertainment for kids and parents while they wait in line waiting for Santa.
I can’t recall the last time I had a day all to myself. Most of my weekends now are either with my kids or working on our new home (yes, we just bought a home! ), so I hardly get to do anything that I used to enjoy, like shopping! This past weekend, I had the perfect excuse to escape for a day out for some “me” time.
Hey guys, a few days late, but HAPPY MAY!!! Isn’t it incredible that we’re almost reaching half the year already? I’ve been anticipating for spring and summer to arrive because for the past few months, my team and I’ve been working and waiting on the new party collection from Harlow & Grey to arrive (pssst, we have a few more launching this season.) Our new collection that just launched this week is called “Daydream“, and as you can see the colors are light and airy with beautiful accents of gold.
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".
