Rainy day wishlist and Blacks competition to win a weekend break in Cumbria

Hi everyone. As per usual, British weather surprised us and we had to get winter boots and jackets out... again! I still can't believe it. Last week I was planning a weekend away, getting excited about sunny weather and when the time came, it was freezing cold and it started snowing, so we had to cancel our plans. Oh.... the joys of living in UK...

One thing every Brit needs is a pair of wellies! I remember my last pair, with skulls and roses... haha :) I don't know what happened with it to be honest. It went missing after one of our camping trips. Believe it or not, I haven't bought a new pair since then! I really want to get a pair of Hunter wellies. They have been on my wishlist since I can remember, but I didn't want to splash the cash on them. When I finally decided to buy them from net-a-porter's sale, they didn't have my size :O

I was browsing  Blacks website at the weekend and I was really tempted to order myself a pair of Hunter wellies, but you might know that I am on a spending ban, so I had to restrain myself :) I really like the tall pink pair and the classic black ones as well, but I am not sure if they would fit me. I think that the short ones would be a better option for me and they are £20 cheaper than the tall ones. I will probably end up buying both options anyway :) I also desperately need a waterproof jacket and the ones I featured in this post are very reasonably priced and look really pretty. They are Peter Storm Jack-in-a-Pack jackets and cost £25. I always thought that waterproof jackets in little bags are a clever idea and if they are feel made and pretty, I am sold!

Blacks is currently running a competition with Visit England to offer you the chance to win an exclusive adventure break in stunning Cumbria. 

As part of the prize the winner will  receive a 3 night break for up to four people at the 4* Low Wood Bay Resort Hotel and Marina in Windemere. 

The prize also includes sailing or water ski lesson at the Watersports centre, a Mini Treetop Trek and £1000 of Blacks kit.
