Interior decorator Neelam Gurm proves you don’t need a backyard to get this quintessential summer look. Outdoor movies may be synonymous with gravel parking lots and large, grassy fields, but for interior decorator and Patterns and Prosecco blogger Neelam Gurm, the fun doesnâ€™t need to stop there. After noticing a blank wall outside her friendâ€™s condo, she decided to test whether or not the classic summer setting (most often reserved for natural areas) could be recreated in an urban location.
Our favourite ways to work out under the Southern California sun. SoCal is renowned for many things: wine, traffic, movie stars—not to mention some of the best beach bods on the West Coast. So before you hit those Southern California roads, add these fitness destinations and activities to your itinerary, make like the locals and work up a sweat (while still taking advantage of that sweet California heat). There’s a reason it’s called Surf City, USA.
You know those Instagrammers you just loveâ€”the ones whose photos you canâ€™t help but double-tap for? Well, for me, itâ€™s Jenna Rae Cakes. Iâ€™m not entirely sure how it happened, but one day I decided to follow theÂ Winnipeg bakery and theyâ€™ve been flooding my feed with cakes and cupcakes, brownies, cream puffs, meringues and macarons, each one prettier than the lastâ€”and with incredible-sounding flavours, tooâ€”ever since.
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".
