    Today Is...
    National Chocolate Day! Uh, is this real life?

    News of the Day:
    As if you're not already counting down the days (nine!) until you can get your hands on Alexander Wang's H&M collection, the designer has another collection that is available for pre-order today. The T by Alexander Wang Resort 2015 collection is available now for all your luxe minimalist needs.
    + If it seems like Benedict Cumberbatch is everywhere lately, that's because he is. Next up, the British actor is currently in negotiations to play Marvel's Doctor Strange.
    + We think we've found a winner for the "Worst Halloween Costume Ever" award: "sexy Ebola nurse" costumes are now a thing, much to everyone's dismay.
    + If you've got $1 million to spare, you can bid on a Mason jar that singer Sia breathed into. The proceeds will go to the nonprofit Adelaide Film Festival, based in Australia. Really.
    Daniel Radcliffe takes on a new, risqué role in his latest film, Horns, a fantasy thriller. While longtime fans are a bit weirded out by his new sex symbol status after seeing him grow up on-screen, Radcliffe called out the sexist double standard, saying, "Well, the male population has had no problem sexualizing Emma Watson immediately." 

    Deal of the Day:
    When you spend $200 or more today and tomorrow at Piperlime, enter the code WINWIN25 for 25-percent off of your purchase. Plus, you'll also be entered for the chance to win a vintage Chanel purse, Louis Vuitton handbag, or Hermès bracelet.

    Advice of the Day:
    “You have to care about how good you are and how good you feel but not about how good people think you are or how good people think you look." - Amy Poehler in her new memoir, Yes Please
