When it’s mid-August and there are three weekends left until Labor Day, it can feel like summer’s over, especially with the influx of new denim, heavy knits, and other fall pieces filling store windows (and home pages). But in much of the country, warm weather doesn't let up until at least October. You can absolutely still buy summer clothes — you should just be buying them on sale.
Gone are the days of having to sit by your computer ahead of a #rare Pat McGrath Labs drop, only to walk away empty handed because it sold out in seconds! The iconic makeup artist announced yesterday evening via Instagram — and to a bunch of New York City beauty editors IRL — that after two years and seven limited edition beauty collections, she's finally coming out with a permanent collection of makeup.
I'm a hard sell when it comes to graphic T-shirts for the very simple reason that the phrases scrawled across them are almost always painfully embarrassing — whether or not I'm the one wearing them. They can get corny really fast (brunch! SoulCycle puns!) and problematic even faster (normalizing alcoholism c/o rosé! ), so I've accepted the fact that they're more of a thing for adults who still have their sorority chapter in their Instagram bio, and not for me.
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".
