Off the eastern coast of Africa, in the midst of the Indian Ocean, therein lies a series of islands, which comprise the Seychelles. Situated roughly 1,600 km from the mainland, the Seychelles provide an unfiltered glimpse of life in paradise. Comprised of nearly 115 islands, the landscape alone offers up views that are simply incomparable yet felicitously expected: waves that exude an unimaginably defined spectrum of blues and lush, tropical greenery as far as the eye can see.
When it comes to revamping a space, the bathroom typically gets the short end of the stick. Partly because we often tend to see it as a less-frequented space and partly because there are only a handful of ways to switch things up—you know, without having to commit to a complete overhaul. And while the scope of small changes you can make usually entail something along the lines of either a new shower curtain, towels, or a bath mat, we're all for implementing a different approach.
As a self-proclaimed minimalist, I am all too familiar with the struggle that comes with the practice of mixing and matching patterns. My apartment features an almost exclusively whitewashed aesthetic, save for the single moment of color brought in by a vintage-inspired indigo dresser and a handful of plants. The absence of pattern is all too real, as my design style tends to skew towards the understated.
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".
