It’s a bank holiday Monday and I’m sitting on the sofa with a cup of tea after cooking and then devouring the yummiest curry. Since I’ve returned to the UK from India, I’ve shied away from Indian food – that’s what six weeks of having curry every day does to you (even for breakfast!) But ever since me and my boyfriend returned from India last month we’ve been desperate to test our newly learnt Indian cooking skills.
It’s the time of year you actually do want to get your glow on. Obviously we don’t want to look “flushed” merely appealingly dewy with youthful stunning skin! Good skin really is a genetic lottery but I’ve been a beauty editor since I was 26, which may have given me a head start on the anti-ageing arsenal, but it’s certainly armed me with the know-how to use the best building blocks that get effective skin results.
The Long & Short of It! Summer party style! In a bid to add a bit of fizz and enjoyment to life – shall we party? Here at fclub hq we think we all deserve a bit of respite from the harsh realities of the world. And, while summer continues to merely flirt with us (rain plus cloud plus teeny slivers of sun are the English summer equation after all) this is still our favourite time of year for socialising – both Marie Louise and I are Leos and summer is our season. Style wise it can be a bit demanding.
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".
