This week has been so hectic - coming back from Reading Festival with just enough time to almost-recover for work, helping the boyfriend uni shop and a photoshoot, I'm so excited to escape to Amsterdam for a couple of days next week! AMY X
Ohhhhh yeah that's right, I'm the face of a brand..what?! I'm pretty late to the party as I've been totally neglecting my blog lately and this shoot has been up for a while, but if you're a loyal follower of my social media you will have seen a couple of posts about it.
Back in July I took a sunny train trip to London and pranced about on a roof for a day wearing bright clothing and a ton of jewellery. Everything I'm wearing is from the wonderful store, Anna Lou of London, which carries everything from chunky statement necklaces, to dainty little monogrammed bracelets. I've recently got my hands on some custom pieces that I can't wait to show you all in an upcoming post, they've skyrocketed their way straight into my favourite pieces of jewellery! For now, why not take a look at their site to see their gorgeous pieces or for more photos from the shoot?
I'm writing this post after the date because on Sunday I was partying over at Reading Festival! I had a blast at Blink-182 and have a vlog of my time there so make sure you subscribe to my YouTube to see when it's posted! AMY X
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!

As you may be able to tell from these photos, I've been to V Festival! I went along with the lovely Kayla Hadlington for AX Paris and had an incredible time, I vlogged it on my brand new camera (oOoh) so you should all see that soon. My favourite act was of course Justin Timberlake and Bastille weren't half bad either - did any of you go? Who was your favourite act? AMY X
I'm not too happy with how green these photos turned out but I haven't had time to do many outfit shoots so this is one of the few I have on my computer now - beggars can't be choosers!
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 AMY X

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!
