What was your very first job? Probably my earliest job was helping out my dad in his electronics store when I was a kid. He sold video games in our hometown’s indoor flea market. In between playingÂ Sonic the HedgehogÂ on our old school Game Gear sets orÂ Tony Hawk Pro SkaterÂ on the Playstation we had set up for demos, I would help customers out with what they were looking for.
Former fashion publisher Monica Nakata and stylist Ruby Heery are the ~tres chic~ duo behind Par Femme a.k.a. an e-commerce (meets content) site where sex also meets style. They're also our boss(es) of the week.Purveying adult toys next to designer clothing and accessories might seem like a strange pairing, but a perfectly curated aesthetic, accessible and unassuming products, and an overall ethos of luxuriousness, has won Par Femme (that’s “by woman”) a cult online following.
Change was required: Blue-blooded pinks (think Barbie and Legally Blonde) have been side-lined. This new shade is trickier to pin down. The Guardian—apparently determined to stick to a food theme—described it as “a grapefruit shade of apricotty salmon." This unfairly makes it sound revolting. It is true, however, that its base is yellow rather than blue, which makes it feel more sophisticated and earthy, like a pale and well-worn terracotta tile.How did millennial pink become so popular?
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".
