This post is in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures. Caleb and I had the chance to head to San Diego last week and attend a press junket for the new LEGO NINJAGO movie. We had so much FUN! Not only did we get to screen the movie before it hit the big screen, but we also stayed at the wonderful LEGOLAND hotel and visit the super cool amusement park. If your child loves LEGOS, you need to read this post. LOTS of great tips for you to check out in case you want to head out West as well.
Thank you Ellio’s Pizza for sponsoring this post. Visit your local retailer to pick up your own Ellio’s Pizza for a pizza night in! I have a seventh grader who is eager to do so much more in our home. We are in the “in between” stages of life. Natalie isn’t really a child, but she isn’t quite an adult either. My young lady wants to cook and take care of her baby brother and handle her own money when we are out at the mall… but is she truly ready for this all?
I went shopping for some new Fall pieces and I came across this WAYF Micah Ruffle Sleeve top at Nordstrom. SO much FUN! I love how the sleeves really make the look. You really don’t need any accessories to complete it. I have on a simple chain that I pretty much wear every day and a watch that you cannot SEE. This top is enough of a statement piece on its own. You know I’m all about that lazy fashion. Or I guess I should say easy fashion. Comfortable and chic and simple. How’s that?
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
