For years, I’ve been part of a clothing swap with a bunch of girlfriends. Lest the name not already be fully self-explanatory, it’s basically a gathering that takes place about once or twice a year, where everyone brings clothes that have resided untouched in their closets despite being perfectly wearable—just not by its owner, who, during a momentary aberration, purchased the item against her better judgment.
“Yuna was an incredibly positive and loving person,” recalls long-time collaborator hairstylist Orlando Pita . “Besides being a talent, she was an amazing mom and wife. I had the pleasure of hosting her and her family for many weekends at our country home. I have many great memories, but I will miss her immensely. She was my true confidante.”“She was one of the most inspiring, strongest women I've ever met,” says makeup artist Gucci Westman .
Last week I had breakfast with Jamie Rosen, the beauty director of Town & Country and a former colleague. As we sat gobbling down our oatmeal and berries at the Whitby Hotel, she smiled at me. “I’m so glad you went back to being a brighter blonde,” she said. “It’s happier and sunnier, and it suits you.”“It suits you.” From her mouth to certain colorists’ ears. After a year of taking my hair to darker and darker tones, I had decided to come home again.
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".
