On the island of Islay, off the western coast of Scotland, sits a small distillery in Lagavulin Bay. You may have heard of it from comedian Nick Offerman of Parks and Recreation, or maybe you’re hearing of it for the first time. Either way, take note: the experience at Lagavulin is nothing short of amazing. When I say Lagavulin is the best distillery tour in Scotland, I really mean it. In fact, my husband and I agree that this tasting was our favorite memory of the TRIP.

I like to think that being Ted’s “person” is the best training possible for parenthood. Look – I get it – having a dog isn’t exactly the same as having a child. Teddy comes with her own challenges, though.
Here’s the thing: when it comes to a lot of things that I put into my body, I don’t tend to get my panties in a bunch. I don’t go out of my way to eat organic produce, I roll my eyes at things marketed as “gluten free”, and I mostly forget to take my multivitamin. I know, some of you are gasping at those sentiments, but there is one area where I am without a doubt picky: feminine care. I’ll be blunt – sometimes being a lady really sucks. You know what I’m talking about.
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".
