When bold-faced names like Oprah, Penelope Cruz, and Ben Stiller head to Rome, the first person they call is Simone Amorico. The 37-year-old is a partner at Access Italy, a Rome-based travel company that plans exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime experiences for A-list guests and other well-heeled clients. Simone’s father Angelo Amorico started Access Italy 20 years ago, and has since made a name for himself (and his sons, who run it alongside him) as the go-to expert on all things Italy.
"Exfoliation is important any time of year, but as a combination/oily skin girl who is prone to breakouts, I feel extra compelled to scrub during the winter months when I am using richer nourishing products. The super gentle yet effective UMA Oils Ultimate Brightening Rose Powder Cleanser is based on a century-old Ayurvedic purifying recipe. Rather than using it daily (which you can), I like to apply it once or twice a week as a mask to maximize the clarifying and brightening benefits."
Brace yourselves Diptyque fans: the cult-favorite French perfumer has just released its 2018 Valentine's Day collection, and well, we're already placing bets on how soon the limited edition items — priced between $35 and $130 — are going to sell out. (We've been told that stores and online retailers in Canada are completely out of stock.) So why the frenzy over a fancy fragrance? For starters, there's the packaging, which draws inspiration from 18th Century Toile de Jouy fabric.
PR bosses: pls do not have your poor 19-year-old intern call me to follow up about an irrelevant pitch you sent 20 minutes ago. It's a waste of their time AND mine. This is the 21st century! More effective ideas for busy work: interact with eds on social; study SEO; read the news
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".
