Martinis and Mascara is not only beauty-positive and body-positive, but also a sex-positive, judgment-free zone. So, when my friends at Her Campus reached out with the opportunity to spread the word about Plan B One-Step®, I couldn’t say no. There’s this preconceived notion that it’s weird or taboo to discuss emergency contraception, but there shouldn’t be. Life happens and it’s important to be aware of the options you have when it does.
Those are a few favorites, but my most recent checkmark on the list landed next to “learn to bartend.”On a recent Thursday, I graduated (with honors, of course) with my cocktail degree from ABC Bartending School on Worthington Road in West Palm Beach. Since then, I’ve been slinging drinks all over the place. In fact, I have proven to myself that I can craft them almost as well as I can throw them back.
I knew when I was seated next to Heather Graham in the waiting area that I would be in good hands at Cutler Salon. Truthfully though, I had a pretty good feeling about the fate of my hair even before I walked in. I was referred to Cutler colorist Rachel Bodt by my amazing friend Loni. (She famously went blonde herself and lived to tell the tale to Cosmo, so I trust her with every strand on my head.)
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".
