Given a choice of about seven great denim brands to choose from, Reynolds immediately gravitated to a slim pair of Michael Kors jeans. He’s worn the brand before and he knows their fit works with his narrow waist and muscular legs. “For me, it starts from the pants,” Reynolds says. “They need to fit right. When you find a pair you like that fit you well and don’t bunch at the bottom or too baggy in the front, you can do anything. Add a t-shirt and a jacket.
Taking care of your appearance shouldn’t be complicated, but if you’ve ever wandered down the soap aisle and felt completely drowned by your options—we feel your pain. It seems like every new cream, deodorant, and shampoo promises to make you look younger, smell fresher, and revitalize your lackluster strands. It’s true: Taking care of yourself now will help you look your best as the decades roll by—but how to pick the products that actually work? We wanted to find out for ourselves.
The first thing I noticed about my future husband was his hands—specifically his cuticles. His fingers looked like shredded, knobby stalks of asparagus. When we moved in together, I urged him to borrow my cuticle cream and trimmer—things he had no intention of buying. Suddenly his fingers went from gnarly to nice, and he was hooked. Call it an indirect intervention. I asked Amy Komorowski, a celebrity groomer whose clients include Justin Timberlake and Seth Meyers, if this was typical.
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".
