As the adage goes, news travels fast. And, in a city as socially connected as S.F., "fast" doesn't even cut it — try lightning speed. That's why we local editors work around the clock to keep our eyes on the prize and ears to the ground to bring forth the buzziest and freshest headlines in and around our city. From a fave celebrity following an S.F. food truck on Twitter to local lookbooks we can't stop eyeing, here's everything you need to know this week.

Refinery29 San Francisco editor Angela Tafoya and her boyfriend, artist Eric Bailey, have got style in the bag. So, naturally, they’re the best fit to front Timbuk2’s line of custom carryalls that come in a handful of striking fabrics. Snag one for yourself with this 20% discount code, exclusive for our readers, at checkout: T2Refinery29. (Timbuk2)

Admittedly, we see our phones as cameras more than anything else. So, if you've also caught the shutterbug, you're in luck, because Flickr has redesigned its mobile app with you in mind. This new version makes everything from capturing video to editing photos a, well, snap. (Flickr)

All good things come in threes. Need proof? This week, we’ve been hit with a trio of inspiring lookbooks from Anaïse, Acrimony, and Ali Golden. And, believe us — a flip through each is guaranteed to put you in hot pursuit of every piece. (Anaïse, Acrimony, and Ali Golden)

Get ready to kick up those heels! Christian Louboutin is opening a boutique in Union Square. Expect to see more flashes of those red soles on our city streets in no time. (Racked SF)

Our favorite snarky superhero, Robert Downey Jr., has finally joined Twitter. (It's about time!) And, while he's quickly garnered more than a million followers, he only follows 41 in return — including our very own Bacon Bacon. Obviously, we’ll be at this Saturday’s Cole Valley opening to see if the Iron Man will be there to pig out. (USA Today)
