    1. No more joking around: it's cold. And with chilly weather comes the urge to start wearing red lipstick again (it's just science). This week's list of lipstick "tricks" from Refinery29 is a helpful primer. (And don't forget to check out the R29 pop-up, going on now at Brooklyn's Space Ninety 8!)

    2. Okay, we are entirely aware that this is ketchup propaganda, but Sir Kensington's Fries of New York pop-up exhibition this week was totally brilliant. The brand collected "famous" french fries from beloved NY restaurants and, like little greasy pieces of science, methodically displayed each individually under glass. See pics and a recap at Trendland.

    3. Here's a cute music video for "Who Do You Love?" from Robyn and Kindness featuring shots of their friends and family. Awwww.

    4. In “Isolated," artist Fernando Vallejo features passersby on the streets of NY but without the bustling city setting. Instead, he places his subjects against a stark black backdrop, creating a somewhat familiar yet weird and stunning alternate universe.

    5. A new exhibit in NYC opened this week focusing on the Beat Generation author William S. Burroughs and the cut-up technique he helped popularize. If you're in the area, be sure to check out "Cut-Ups: William S. Burroughs 1914-2014" open now through mid-December.

    6. It turns out that street-style fashion photography isn't a new concept at all. Check out these amazing vintage photos taken in Paris between 1910-1920. We're dying over all the elegant coats.
