Once we are into the tail end of autumn, like now, skin often ends up looking dry and dull - so here is a brilliant selection of products to freshen up your complexion. I've chosen a refining polish to clear away dead skin cells, a replenishing moisturiser and startlingly good flash-firming neck gel. This boxful is, as always, an excellent bargain. These products are worth £100 and they're yours for £25 plus £4.99 p&p.
All Day Long is a broad-spectrum sunscreen (ie, it gives you thorough protection from both UVA and UVB rays) in the form of a very nice moisturiser which again suits my skin very well, and on top of the Good Morning serum, is all I need by way of hydration. It feels creamy but it’s light, and has plenty of hyaluronic acid in it, which holds onto water in the skin to keep it comfortable and plumped up.
I have just spent two weeks in Bali which - yes, sorry -- was just brilliant. The trip started out as an empty-nester break for me and my husband as our youngest has just gone to uni and our eldest has left home, and it turned into a bit of a spa tour. Two of the resort-hotels we went to were for work (tough job, I know), and the other two had spas too (there are spas everywhere in Bali, from beach-shack-type arrangements to luxurious, five-star-plus numbers in the top resorts).
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".
