Fabulously British.

Ive found myself at the South Coast this week, mostly basking in the sun and drinking Pimms with my amazing family! However, its a very inspiration place! Yesterday I ventured into London as I am hopefully getting the opportunity to intern their next year which is a very exciting prospect! With the Olympics going on, you can imagine how stressful it was. I walked about, doing a bit of shopping and found I was amazed by the visual merchandising in a lot of the stores. They have really gone all out for the Olympics and it looks fastastic, very patriotic! I didnt have my camera on me at the time unfortunatly but I managed to find a couple online! If you get a chance I would deffinatly recommend having a look on Fulham Road - South Kensington!

Forever 21


On another note I wanted to share this jewelery website I have just found and fell in love with! It sells all sorts of different earings, necklaces and bracelets that you would see on the highstreet for about a fraction on the price! Its called Kukee, TAKE A LOOK!

My next project is to start a LookBook, I have been wanting to do this for a long time but my summer has been so hectic I havent had the chance! I have barely photographed any of my outfits recently which really upsets me as I like to look back at things a wore in the past and take inspiration and ideas from it! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Living the Vietnamese dream...

So I had this lovely skirt made in a tailors in Hoi An Vietnam, called Yaly (We got very excited by the fact Mick Jagger had had many suits made there!) I briefly designed it and explained it to one of the lovely girls that worked  there after picking the beautiful silk. The fabric is so unique I fell in love with it! She said she would have it ready by the following day which was amazingly fast and took all my measurements! I love that it fits me so perfectly and is the only one in the whole world! The boat shoes I had made in a small tailors that only made shoes, they are unfortuantly a bit big but I can get away with them with socks on! There was so many colours I was so hard to choose which ones I wanted! Each thing cost me about sixteen pounds, unbelievably cheap!

Glitzy Blonde.

Firstly I wanted some advice.. while I was away traveling, the constant sun has made my hair very blonde again, and I now want it even lighter (back to how it used to be). I was going to try Sun-In Super Spray from Boots. I think you just spray it on the parts of you hair you wish to lighten and it will work its magic, but Im slightly sceptical as Its pretty cheap and I dont want my hair to end up ruined! Has anyone used it who has any tips?

Im really excited about my new Barry M Silver Foil nailvarish, I wanted a silver one for ages but this was the only one I could find that was proper metalic! Although it does remind me slightly of an astronaught, but Im okay with that! Barry M have so many amazing colours out at the moment, I want them all!

I have recently found myself getting very into using Twitter! Its great to follow companies, find out whats going on! I am struggling to link it up with my Blog however but if you enjoy reading about my fashion and photography obsessed life, follow me - CazzaLW!

Fashion Fix.

All this time away has left me very poor, and in need of so many pretty things! I feel like I havent shopped in decades, DEPRESSING.

The first thing Im going to buy are these galaxy print leggings, there are amazing and look ace with those heels which I have already, perfect! You can buy your own here!


Loving the tye dye / dip dye trend at the moment! Espeically all the pastel colours! I think I need these in my wardrobe to wear with my tye dye tshirt I picked up from a small boutique in South Thailand! Buy yours here :)

Lastly, I need these Jeffrey Campbells in my life, but can I justify £145 for a pair of shoes that I know I will ruin in just a few wears...well I guess my student loan has to be spent on something eh!



Seeing the world...

So although my time in South East Asia was anything but glamorous or fashionable, it was incredible! And deserves to be shared. I spent a month and half travelling all through Thailand, into Laos and then finished in Vietnam. We experienced everything from The Full Moon party, Elephant riding, near death boat trips, helping out in a Thai orphanage, spending three days on a castaway island, tubing in the Vang Vieng, sleeping outside (and with cockroaches), visiting the Beach from the movie (Leanardo was not there unfortunately), bioluminesiant plankton, tropical storms, an out of control pool party, kayaking through Halong bay, exploring dirt tracks on mopeds, beautiful sunsets on a tropical island, treking through a jungle (wearing flip flops), white water rafting and bamboo in the roasting sun and best off all, we met some amazing people and friends for life! I took a ridiculous amount of photographs, as we all know its one of my favourite things to do! Heres a couple of my favourites, for the rest look on my Facebook!
Ive also put loads of photos onto my timeline on the right, the top one is a beautiful beach in Halong bay, then the sunrise at Ankor Watt which I wasnt ataully lucky enough to see myself but my friends were! Following by my all time favourite set of wheels, the Vespa! I spotted this one in Saigon, south Vietnam and fell in love with it, the colour is prefect for me!
I also had an amazing skirt made me for which I designed in a lovely town called Hoi An in Vietnam, and a pair of boat shoes, but I havent really had the chance to wear them since the weather has been awful but I will get some photos up when I do! The tailors are so talented and make you whatever you want in a matter of hours, me and the girls spent far to long and far to much money here!

Im back home now and very depressed, looking for Fashion Intern jobs in London for third year! Very excited to return to uni, third year is going to be a blast with placement and the Fashion show to look forward too! On another note, the magazine finally got printing and it looks amazing, so proud of all the girls, all our hard work paid off!


A summer of love.

WELL. apparently I havent blogged since January, JANUARY? what is wrong with me. Ive been very out of touch. And so much has happend! FIRSTLY London Fashion Weekend. Then finishing second year, THEN I went travelling around South East Asia for six weeks. Alot of photography to be shared.
LFW - So the girls and I pretty much spent three days shopping and drinking cocktails, nothing better than that really! Didnt have any encounters with any celebs however, but theres always next year! We spent three hours in Topshop Oxford street, and im not usually a massive Topshop fan but that place is unreal! We spent a day in Brick Lane exploring all the amazing vintage clothing! All in all I didnt buy too much, as there was far too much choice!
