Supermarket blooms and corner stores are great for everyday, but for special moments it can be a challenge to find stylish, progressive flower options amongst the endless Google search results and paint-by-number arrangements. If you’re looking for thoughtfully-composed bouquets that hew to current floral trends—from freakebana to hand-tied wildflowers—it pays to go small and support creative, independent florists.
In the past year alone, Toronto–raised, New York–based designer Aurora James won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund competition, was nominated for a CFDA award, and was placed on Vanity Fair’s renowned Best Dressed List. Unsurprisingly, Brother Vellies, her sustainable footwear and accessories label, has also come a long way since its 2013 launch.
“Now, she is confident and sees her quirks as part of her strength, and embraces what makes her unique.”Vancouver-born, London-educated Steven Tai has been a critical fashion darling since launching his eponymous womenswear label in 2012 at age 28 (having cut his teeth as an intern at Stella McCartney and Viktor & Rolf).
Placed my first order w/ @RONAinc Sunday. Order cancelled by store on Monday. Called customer service, was told they can’t do honour the order although other stores have stock. Asked to speak to a manager...no call back. Now I know why we go to @CanadianTire and @HomeDepotCanada
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".
