So a couple of weeks ago I was very kindly asked if I would like to attend the shoot for the first Fashion Union TV ad, and I always love seeing what goes down behind the scenes, so of course I HAD to go along!
I got an exclusive sneaky peek from the new AW14 collection, some of which I've been able to share with you guys, so..you heard it here first! This season is all about colour and textures - bright fur coats with an edge, loud prints, layering, and of course super soft, snuggly knitwear! Fashion Union are on point with it all so make sure you check back to their site often to get your hands on the new collection!
The shoot was based around a rotating cube - sounds a little basic but seriously, go watch the vlog because the final shots look absolutely insane, wish I could pull the same shapes as the pros! After watching them all day I did get to have my own little mini shoot, which I'll make sure to post on here as I love how they've turned out, but for now you'll have to make do with the BTS footage (;
The ad will be released in September, so keep an eye on your television screens. Until then, to see more photos from the shoot, including a sneak peek of my own mini editorial, make sure you check out the Fashion Union Instagram!
This is the perfect festival outfit for the sunny weather we were having (although the rainclouds have reared their ugly heads!) - the shorts are so comfy and chilled out and the kimono adds a pop of colour, probably the most yellow you'll see me wear!
Ps. Apologies for the creased shorts, I'm too lazy to iron xo
1/ Love the Fashion Union AW collection! 2/ 60's inspired make-up for the FU shoot
3/ Pretty new nails 4/ Lottie doin' her thang at the FU shoot
5/ That's a wrap! 6/ Pretty pressies from the lovely Fashion Union team!
This Sunday Summary is pretty much a Fashion Union special! I was busy all week with work, then travelled up to Manchester for a couple of days so all my Instagrams are from my time with FU. I was the exclusive blogger for behind the scenes at their FIRST TV commercial shoot and I'll be posting about my time there properly very soon - for the time being make sure you check out their shop and give them a quick follow on Instagram!
I'm so behind on my YouTube videos (sorry guys!) but I finally got round to editing my Download Festival vlog thanks to a 4 hour train journey! It includes a ton of band interviews as well as some live sets - I tried to keep live footage to a minimum as I know it may not be to everyone's taste! All in all I had a really amazing time and hope you enjoy the vlog - my fave part is definitely the We Came As Romans interview at 14 minutes in, those guys are hilarious!
Let me know what you think in the comments - I'm not sure whether you like the vlogs or not and it's a lot of effort to go to if the feedback isn't great so leave your thoughts, and make sure you click read more for outfit details and social links etc!

I received this gorgeous set from Cosabella a little while ago and I've been really excited to share my thoughts with you guys as I'm so in love with it! I have previously blogged about swimwear - not yet underwear - but I'm totally comfortable with it and as I did mention in - my haul video, I love seeing what new underwear bloggers find because I'm always in the market for new sets!
My whole life I've always worn basic underwear from Primark or M&S because I saw it as a necessity and it's affordable from those two places - but owning some super pretty undergarments has made me realise you get what you pay for, so in my case I've never got anything special.
Then this little Cosabella set came along and I'm so obsessed with it, I mean, for a start it's ombré - super on trend and unique. It's also in the triangle shape which is ~all the rage~ lately and I've been on the hunt for a good triangle bra for a while. The lace is stretchy but firm so er..keeps you all in, as well as being breathable for the summer weather and to top it all off, it's the comfiest underwear I've ever worn - no word of a lie; support and comfort is a new discovery for me and It's set almost unrealistic expectations for future bras - think I definitely need some more Cosabella in my life!

I'm currently typing this post by candlelight for the WW1 remembrance and am feeling so relaxed and zen, I should blog like this more often!
As you may be able to tell from the wristband, these photos were taken just after LoveBox Festival, which I attended recently (post on that soon!) - I've been a little behind with uploading outfit posts with all this moving house so bear with me for the time being! This twosie is a good'un from Missguided, by far one of my top 3 stores, and I love how the palm leaves mix with the tile print. This jacket tops everything though - I've been wearing it so much since I got it as it goes with everything and is so soft, so fits well, I got a 12 if any of you are wondering!
Anyway, I've left it too late, so now I'm off to cook my dinner by candlelight - d'oh!
