Who are we listening to at the moment? Delve into our playlist...

The music scene seems to be in its element at the moment, with so many emerging new artists from the UK and around the world blowing everyone away with their talent. What we've noticed lately is that there seems to be more and more female artists - from singers to DJs and bands - who are taking the industry by storm. And we are totally for that. Following on from Haim's recent comment that they want to start an all-girl festival to celebrate girl power, here's a look at which girls we've got on our playlist...


Shura is definitely one of our favourite emerging artists of the year so far and she has won us over with her soulful, tropical-infused R 'n' B. Born and raised in Manchester, she has always had an appetite for music and is now based in London as a singer/songwriter/producer. Having spent the summer performing at some of the UK's top festivals, including Bestival and Latitude, she is fast amassing a huge fanbase. We recently saw her perform at Electric Brixton and she was A-MAZING live. Definitely check her out!


The loveable American sister act Haim kick-started their band in 2006 after growing up in the Californian sun with diverse influences from The Beatles to Motown. Their album 'Days Are Gone' released in 2013 saw the girls rocket up the music ladder and they've shown no signs of slowing down. Since then, their 'new age' pop sounds have a real feel good vibe about them and they have been touring the world, appearing at all the need-to-know festivals such as Glastonbury and Coachella. They're also championing women in music and that's something we love.


This 18-year-old British singer/songwriter is powering through the music scene at the moment with her delicate electronic sounds. After performing on the BBC's Introducing stage at Glastonbury last year, Lapsley has been one of the most highly-tipped artists of the year. Taking things slow however, she has released a couple of EPs - most recently debuting her new single 'Hurt Me' on Annie Mac's Radio 1 show. We love her incredible, emotional vocals mixed with soft electronic beats.


Sia has, of course, got a beautiful voice but we rarely get to see her face. Sia is all about the vocals and her rise to fame led her to protect her personal life and image closely. Whilst shying away from videos, album and magazine covers to performing with her back to the audience (yes, really!), her endearing qualities make us love her even more. After a rollercoaster of music ups and downs, Sia is finally in a direction of success as she has written hit tracks for the likes of Beyonce and Celine Dion, whilst flourishing with her own singing career too. She's just released 'Alive', which we love.


Louisa Rose Allen goes by the name of Foxes and is a singer/songwriter from the UK. She quickly rose to fame after featuring on Zedd's UK hit 'Clarity', which took the electronic dance scene by storm. After releasing hit albums over the past two years, Foxes is now the face of H&M Loves Music 2015 campaign and has been playing live around the country. If she comes to near you, we definitely recommend paying her a visit!

As the weather gets colder and the days shorter, it's too tempting to spend endless evenings and weekends lounging around in the warmth of your own home. However, we're here to dispel that temptation and get you out enjoying what Britain does best... culture! As the new season sweeps in, lots of activities can be found around the country so whether you're in London or Edinburgh, living in the city or fancy a day trip to one, here's some of our top picks...


If fashion and textiles are your thing, then we recommend you get down to the capital's Liberty in Fashion exhibition being held at, you guessed it, the Fashion & Textile Museum in South London. The exhibition explores the impact that Liberty, the esteemed department store central to London's shopping life, has had on British fashion right from the 19th Century through to the modern day. It has over 150 garments, textiles and objects showing the relationship they have with many key designers including Vivienne Westwood and Yves Saint Laurent. This is not one to be missed and is running right through until February 2016.

If you're a foodie and around the Scottish capital as of today (8th October) then you are in for a treat. With Edinburgh having a vibrant dining scene, organisers have taken it to the next level by bringing locals the Edinburgh Restaurant Festival, which runs for 10 days. Over the course of its duration, some of the city's most loved restaurants will be offering three course lunches for £15 and three course dinners for £25. What's more, it's jam packed with events such as the city's first ever street food pop-up, which is a carefully selected offering of street food, culture and local DJs. If it involves food in one of the UK's most beautiful cities, then we're booking a train now!

If you're in Yorkshire and a lover of contemporary art then the British Art Show 8 is the perfect place to see all of the best contemporary art produced in the UK in one place. 42 artists will be showcasing their work, new and old, making it one of the most ambitious shows the UK art world has ever seen. Based at the Leeds Art Gallery in the city centre, it takes place from 9th October - 10th January 2016. The show only takes place once every 5 years and it's the first time it has come to Leeds so if you are in the area, it's definitely worth heading down!

Bristol is a gorgeous city and a perfect one for weekend getaways. If you're not too busy at the city's famous spas, then the Circus City festival is taking place across Bristol in October. It includes an eclectic mix of brilliant shows, talks, masterclasses and workshops in various places around the city. Mixing everything from circus, dance, theatre, comedy and puppetry, it certainly has something for everyone. Also focusing on home-grown talent, it is the perfect way to get to know the more creative side of Bristol.

In true Liverpool fashion this Autumn, head to the birth place of The Beatles, the city's most famous exports, to celebrate their music in style. If you're in the Merseyside area, the West End musical kicks off today until 14th November at Liverpool's Royal Court theatre. The musical has so far seen huge international success so it only seems right that the show is heading to where The Beatles made humble beginnings, and the show charters their spectacular rise to fame. Made even more special because of its location, whether you're a die hard fan or not, it's simply worth going to soak up some of Liverpool's rich history.

A new season is always a good excuse for a new wardrobe and a new lingerie drawer...

Even though summer's been and gone, there's nothing quite like the excitement of a new, Autumnal season as leaves start to fall, countless cosy nights in with wine are completely acceptable and of course, a new wardrobe is almost a necessity. But what about your underwear drawer? A transition into a new season is the perfect time to give your lingerie the refresh it needs.
Here we run down some of our key AW15 products and hopefully help you decide which ones to pick!


The Ines collection has only been available on for a few weeks but it's already proving a huge hit with our fashionista friends, with world-renowned bloggers such as Charlotte Martin and Sasimb styling it up in incredible fashion (check out our Instagram page!)
The Ines bra is a bold, stand-out style with dramatic guipure lace encased in a triangle structured and finished off with luxurious velvet. Team it with the Ines brief or if you're feeling more daring, opt for theOuvet brief. It's deliciously provocative yet stylishly feminine and is adorned with a beautiful lace trim at the front. AND, if you want to complete the whole look, the Ines Harness is the ultimate way to bring to life any fantasies you might have...


Fancy a touch of ravenous red in your lingerie collection? The Christabel arrived last week and is going to be one of the key styles for the season. Playful yet provocative, this style continues the guipure lace theme but this time in a quarter cup fashion, allowing you to stylishly show off your curves. Complete with lace droplets structuring the front and a satin back band finishing off the back, this is a bra designed not to be hidden! 
Complete the look with the Christabel Brazilianbrief, which is adorned in decadent lace and sumptuous satin at the front but contrasted at the back with a stylish sheer mesh.


If you follow us on Instagram, you'll no doubt have noticed the many times that this bra has sent the Internet into meltdown! One of our best sellers of the summer, how could we not continue it for the next season?! Loved by our fashion friends, including the likes of Nyane Lebajoa, Natali Miru, Manara Isabela and many more, the Nova's ouvert cups framed with intricate floral motifs have proved to be a style that many of you want in your drawer. Finished off with a trio of delicate straps over each shoulder and a subtle diamante at the front, this is a treat too good to cover up!
Team with either the Nova brief or thong, with the former staying true to the style's name with a delicate ouvert style at the back, completed with carefully constructed fashion-forward strapping.


If you're wanting a more laid-back style for the Autumn, then look no further than the Selena. Inspired by sports-luxe style, the bandeau bra is made out of stylish, sheer mesh that is perfect for those days where you want a more casual-chic look. Black in colour and finished off with simple strapping, it's a style that you can wear either staying in or going out - we love. As a bra set, it comes with matching Selena briefs so you can finish the look off in style.


If there was ever a bra made for the party season, then this would most definitely be it. Combining sensual red, moulded cups and sheer mesh, theGiovanna is a bold and stand-out style designed for those who want to make a real statement with their underwear. The moulded red cups are overlaid with classic sheer mesh and the structured framework of the bra effortlessly holds it all together. The final detail is the cut-out at the front, which subtly allows you to show off some skin.
Opt to complete the look with either the Giovanna brief or thong - the favourite of ours being the latter, as the edgy, two-tiered straps create a fashion-forward finish to the whole collection.
