Save the Date1 of 16
By Paige Brettingen
There's a lot more to look forward to this month than candy corn and colorful leaves—though we do love us some fall foliage. Find out what books are coming out, TV shows are premiering and offbeat holidays are happening with Glo's guide to October.
Elizabeth Gilbert's New Book2 of 16
The author who brought us Eat, Pray, Love has a new book, The Signature of All Things. The novel follows the fortunes of Henry Whittaker—a poor Englishman who becomes the richest man in Philadelphia during the 19th century. It may not be a memoir, but the book still promises some adventure abroad, including jaunts to Peru, Tahiti and Amsterdam.
"Super Fun Night" Premiere3 of 16
Created and starring Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson, this new comedy follows three single ladies who have been staying in for "Friday Fun Night" for the past 13 years. But once Kimmie Boubier (Wilson's character) meets a handsome attorney, she decides it's time for a major change. Tune in at 9:30/8:30c on ABC.
RiRi Hearts Returns4 of 16
In case you missed out on Rihanna's RiRi Hearts MAC collection in June, the second round is officially available today through Oct. 31. Our favorite items? A smoky cocoa eye shadow palette for $44, Talk That Talk lipstick for $17, and the Bad Girl Gone Good powder blush for $23.
Improve Your Office Day5 of 16
Employee of the Month, here you come! Use today as an opportunity to show your co-workers just how courteous you are. Some suggestions: Offer to pick up afternoon coffee, tidy up the office kitchen or compliment your co-worker following his presentation (high-fiving optional).
"Romeo & Juliet" Opens6 of 16
We'll always adore Claire and Leonardo's version of the two star-crossed lovers, but we're still looking forward to the most recent adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, starring Hailee Steinfeld of True Grit fame. Also, look out for Homeland's Damian Lewis, who plays Lord Capulet.
"Walking Dead" Returns7 of 16
What better way to get into the Halloween spirit than with season 4 of The Walking Dead? To up the fun factor, create your very own zombie self-portrait using AMC's Dead Yourself App and then see if your zombie gets featured during the season premiere at 9/8c.
Train Your Brain Day8 of 16
Enjoy a mental workout today with these brain teasers, guaranteed to help keep you sharp.
"Actors Anonymous" Release9 of 16
Actor-cum-Ph.D. candidate James Franco has written his first novel. He promises to take readers inside Hollywood's "private club," where the ghost of River Phoenix lurks. The book also features a McDonald's drive-thru clerk, a horror-film starlet and Franco himself, as one of the characters. The biggest surprise of all? It's actually getting good reviews!
Sweetest Day10 of 16
It could be construed as yet another "Hallmark holiday," but Sweetest Day has a heartwarming history. The tradition started in 1922 when Herbert Birch Kingston, a candy company employee in Ohio, wanted to bring some happiness to those who were often forgotten. Kingston and his friends gave out candy and small gifts to orphans and people confined to their homes. The tradition has expanded to include family and friends and continues to live on—especially in the Midwest.
Katy Perry's New Album11 of 16
Katy Perry reveals a stronger, edgier, non-candy-coated side with her new album "Prism," released today. And even though the album's "Roar" track is climbing the music charts, Katy says her favorite song is actually a slow-tempo ballad—a love song called "Unconditionally."
World Series Begins12 of 16
Game 1 of the Major League Baseball World Series starts tonight. Fun fact: Even though the World Series started in 1903, this year marks it 109th year. The series was skipped in 1904 when the president of the New York Giants refused to have his team play the Boston Americans, calling them "inferior." A Boston–New York rivalry? Shocking, but true.
Pablo Picasso's Birthday13 of 16
The master of cubism would have been 132 today, and to celebrate his legacy, we recommend letting one of his quotes be your guide today: "I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it." Well said, Mr. Picasso.
Mother-in-Law Day14 of 16
Go ahead and call or send a card just to let your mother-in-law know you're thinking of her. And look at it this way: It can only help you in the future (so long as the card doesn't arrive late).
Alexa Chung's New Book15 of 16
Alexa Chung brings us her "it" girl advice with the release of her first book, aptly named It. Take a peek into her fashionista life—from her experiences as Marc Jacobs' and Karl Lagerfield's muse to her reflections on life, love and how to decide what to wear in the morning.
