1/4If you’ve ever looked forward to bootcamp just so you can wear your brand new leggings, you know the effect that fashion can have on fitness. The psychological benefits of feeling good about the way you look translates to confidence, and potentially even your own personal spin class record. But it doesn’t have to be a chic sports bra’s sole responsibility to get you into the gym.
Have you ever looked at a friend’s super Instagrammable gallery wall in her apartment and wondered what it all means? Why did she pick that pretty Paris scene? What’s the significance of the black-and-white sketched pug? Do the scenic landscapes have some emotional tie? According to Elana Kilkenny, there’s a lot to be learned from the art you have in your home. “Art is a window into your soul,” says Kilkenny.
1/6When you think of California designer Jenni Kayne, inevitably some aspect of your closet comes to mind. Maybe it’s crisp button-downs, clean-lined dresses, cashmere knits or those ever-popular mules. But no matter what grabs you about the SoCal-inspired staples, Kayne has undoubtedly been mastering a sophisticated take on soft basics since her eponymous label launched in 2003. And she’s been hard at work to bring those same easy-does-it vibes to your home.
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".
