Bring On The Cold!


A few weeks ago I received an email to tell me Blacks & Millets are working alongside brands such as The North Face and Berghaus on their new season jackets. Their range include the stylish Thermoball & Stormcloud ranges. Some great brands and lovely warm coats then. Excellent.


They kindly asked me if I would like to pick one of their coats and take part in their new campaign; Bring on the cold!

It has turned bitterly cold over the last few weeks, so I am very thankful to have been sent this very warm and stylish Women-s- Zaneck Faux Fur Parka.

Blacks Online asked me: ‘Where do you wear yours?’

My answer to their question is:  Morning and afternoon dog walks!!

 This is where I spend most my time in the day!! Me and Mollie the Collie are out at least twice a day, everyday. Come rain or shine. We are always at the park or walking through the woods. Having a nice warm jacket to wear makes it a lot easier.  Who wants to go out freezing to death?!!  I usually hate going out in the cold!


My new jacket is nice, practical and very stylish. Very warm and oh so cosy. I have wanted a Parka coat for a few years now. I am really pleased I have finally got one. I picked this jacket as I loved the style, colour and furry hood. This will keep me nice and snug through the rest of Autumn and throughout the cold Winter months. This is a best selling Parka and I can see why, It has a lovely quality look and feel to it. I wanted to stay away from black as I have a wardrobe full of black garments . So I went for a lovely grey colour for a refreshing change.

  10. That's a lovely coat, I like the fact that it's a longer length so if you have to sit down you don't get a wet/cold bum. I love my north face jacket but it's just a short one.
