I know that scrunchies are high on the Polarizing Fashion List, but I’d argue that it’s time we all collectively reevaluate that stance and get over it. That’s partially because we let everything else come back in due time — even mom jeans and kitten heels — but mainly because I’m personally currently obsessed with them. (Cue you thinking about Carrie Bradshaw shrieking “a scrunchie!” in disapproval.) Scrunchies are not a thing I ever expected to be into.
The ideal winter body lotion can hydrate the driest skin, soothe the most flaked, and mend the most cracked. It shouldn’t be a lot to ask, but, you’d be surprised. When temperatures in New York City dropped below zero last week, we took it upon ourselves to test over a dozen options — from creams and lotions to body butters and oils. Here are the ones worth stocking up on before the next bomb cyclone comes through.
For those of you who haven’t allowed winter’s shorter, colder, and darker days to stop you from getting in those early morning and/or post-work runs outside, I applaud you! And also want to make sure you stay safe, which means being visible to everyone else on the road. The key here is reflective gear, whether you go for a no-frills safety vest or a #super #trendy pair of compression tights with neon rainbow stripes on the legs.
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".
