News of the Day:

+ One man taught us all a valuable lesson in ghosting, aka ending a relationship with someone without explanation, yesterday after his tweet went viral. One anonymous man submitted his personal conflict to the work advice blog Ask A Manager in a post titled "I ghosted my ex, and now she's about to be my new boss." The title is pretty self-explanatory, and the internet proceeded to rip the anonymous dude apart for having the nerve to ghost the person he was with after a three-year relationship. You can read the post in its entirety, here.

+ Calling all '90s kids: Lunchables dessert pizzas are back! The Pizza Treatza boxes come with all the same fixings—pizza crusts, Kraft mozzarella shredded cheese, tomato sauce, chocolate frosting, Capri Sun, and candy-coated chocolate chips. You can get your hands on a box in the refrigerated food section at most major food retailers. 

+ Halloween this year just got sweeter, thanks to this new cookie M&M flavor. The cookies and cream-flavored M&Ms, dubbed "Cookies and Screeem," are on sale at Target, according to popular food review Instagram account Junk Banter. See the M&Ms in their glory, below. 

+ This year is shaping up to be one hell of a year for sparkling beauty, and this new Glam Glow mask is just further proof. The beauty brand just announced its new mask, dubbed the #GLITTERMASK, and if you couldn't already tell, it's made of glitter. The mask is a peel-off firming treatment that the brand promises won't leave any residue behind, and is slated to launch this holiday season—so start saving up.

+ Speaking of Halloween, a new sexy Jon Snow costume for women now exists. Conquer the kingdom (or neighborhood party) of your choosing in this black pleather bodysuit and floor-length fur cape. You can see the costume here.
