My Vintage 1950’s Leopard Faux Fur Coat

Me in my Faux fur vintage coat

Me in my Faux fur vintage coat

I love my original 1950’s vintage Leopard skin faux fur coat, I love it so much so that I want to share it with the world!

Its not to everyones taste, some say its naff and reminds them of Julie Goodyear character ‘BET LYNCH’ in Coronations Street.

But to me this coat means a lot, not only is it vintage and an original 50’s FAUX FUR (which pleases me even more) but it also has history behind it, as its a family heirloom…..

In the 1950’s my great nana whom was a very well dressed lady purchased this coat from a posh shop in Grimsby’s Freeman Street (shame Freeman St is not so posh any more)

Me in my vintage faux fur coat

The coat then was passed down to my nana (who sadly passed away in April this year) making the coat even more special.

When my parents married in 1967 it was then passed to my aunty Chris, who proudly wore it to my parents wedding, (see pictures below)

I had always loved and admired the coat, and dream’t of wearing it, my wish was granted in the mid 90’s my aunty Chris then passed it down to myself.

I love the coat to pieces, its in mint condition and is gorgeous, forever I will cherish it.

To me its a family heirloom.

love it or loathe it?

 Confessions of a marathon novice!

The Marathon Diary…..exercise and VLOG – not sitting down to BLOG! 😉

I set a goal for myself to achieve a half marathon this year. After gaining three stone in weight over a two year period it was about time I took control and did something about it.

I’m running Cardiff half marathon in October  http://www.cardiffhalfmarathon.co.uk/

I’m raising money for The Tree House appeal Charity http://www.each.org.uk/how-to-help/treehouse_appeal/

to make a donation click here http://www.justgiving.com/Hannah-Coleman

I’ve decided to film my homemade video marathon diarys to keep me positive and focused on my weekly training regimes, and hopefully may inspire others.

http://www.youtube.com/user/dreamwalls1 please subscribe and follow my daily updates.

My boyfriend and Eddie Izzard have both inspired me that I can do this and that running and training can be fun!

SO LETS DO IT!

The ‘Lucky’Runt Look him now! (all grown up!)

Lola my french lop eared rabbit gave birth to a litter of six in October. Five of her baby bunnys were all normal, but one bunny was a runt. It was Lolas first litter, and she wasn’t producing much milk. I was worried out of my mind, as I didn’t want to loose the little mite who I named ‘Lucky’ So I took him into my care and hand feed him with extra help from his mum Lola.

Here is Lucky who I hand raised he was very behind than the others in the litter (he was the runt)

As you can see from this picture Lucky was very small in comparison to his sister

It really was a case of touch and go, all the other bunnys in the litter were growing at a normal rate, Lucky looked so small and weak. I fed him extra Lactose by a syringe mixed with double cream. Luckily, Luckys mum Lola never rejected him, she was happy to lay in my lap on her back and let him have an extra fed on his own. It took time and patience, but I was determined that Lucky would survive. I prayed mother nature would be kind, and she certainly was. I kept Lucky, I was too attached that it didn’t feel right to re-home him with the others at 8 weeks old. I also kept another baby bunny from the same litter, which I named after my cat Charlie, as she had just recently passed. So here is a gorgeous pictures of ‘LUCKY!

Beautiful baby 'Lucky' and his dad Daisy

Aww happy familys mum Lola, baby Lucky and dad daisy

Running the Cardiff Half Marathon 2008 all in the name of (JLS)

In October 2008, Ed and I took part in the Cardiff Half Marathon, this was my second time doing this race, my first being in 2004. We both ran the Cardiff half marathon for Barnardos Charity so it was all worthwhile, but we were also asked to run in the name of X Factor boyband JLS! Having been friends of the band long before the fame! and one of the band members being in a long term relationship with my best friend, it was only naturel when asked by the JLS boys if Ed and I would run the Marathon in there trade mark JLS tee -shirts! JLS were in the final 10 on ITV X Factor in 2008, so this was part of there campaign to get the JLS name out there! And what better way to promote while running a half marathon.

Ed running the Cardiff Half marathon in 2008 in JLS Green Tee shirt

Ed made great time in this race, and got many cheers from the ladies sporting the JLS Green Tee shirt. (Ed did finish long before myself, I guess I blame that on my behalf, lack of training for this race.

Here is a very very exhausted me finally finnishing the race this time in 2hrs 20min - 20 mins slower than 2004 - I look knackered so this picture makes me laugh! all in the name of charity! and of course the Blue JLS tee-shirt!

Its a great feeling to complete a race! especially when you don’t stop and continue to keep running! its all in the name of charity so its good to support such great causes and raise money and awareness.

Ed crossing the line! in his Green JLS tee shirt!

I highy recommend that once in your life try a half marathon, you don’t have to run it, many walk it, some even in fancy dress. I’m determined this next year to train hard as this picture below amuses me,  I finnished the race but I am about to throw up with complete exhaustion! (not one to take myself too seriously) it was all good fun!;-) feel free to laugh at the picture! it makes me laugh every time I see it! I’m sure the JLS boys were still proud!

This picture is a classic! me completing the Cardiff half marathon in 2008 I was so exhausted but at least I did it! all in the name of charity and of course JLS! CHRIST what do us poor girls put our selves through! it was all fun and this picture is very amusing!and yes I was sick 😉

And here are JLS all in there colourful Tee shirts! which Ed and I promoted!
