Today I had to get up at 1am to get the oldest offspring to the airport as she was flying to Majorca for her rep training, can't wait to find out where she's going to be working! Consequently my outfit was very much 'I got up at 1am' Here I am looking surprisingly perky

The huge flared jeans were from a charity shop and resized as they were a bit big, the necklace was from Etsy, can't remember the seller and the coat was the first one I made so it isn't perfect but I like the colours and as it is fairly thin acrylic it's ideal for the weather at the moment (as is the hood!). Forgive my hair, I forgot to take any product on holiday with me so it is hanging limply, man flu dictates that I don't actually care that much.

On to the giveaway. I bought this bag from a charity shop a few weeks ago, it is real leather and from ASOS. As far as I can tell it has never been used. The colours just aren't me however so I am passing it on to someone who will give it the love it deserves. As a little extra there is also a bar of the best soap in the world.

And here's me modelling them
