As that Game of Thrones saying goes ‘Winter is coming’ and we had a weekend away in Wales coming up. The weather looked set to be cold and wet so at the last minute I decided to invest in a new pair of boots.
I always find that when you need something at short notice Next always delivers. Their AW2016 collection for men has some great pieces in and these boots were exactly what I was looking for. They’re super comfortable and are perfect for those cold winter days, exactly the type of days we had in Wales.
We spent a day at a National Trust property called Plas Newydd. It is a beautiful house and estate but hidden inside is an even greater beauty, a piece of art by Rex Whistler. Quite possibly the most beautiful, detailed and immersive piece of art I have ever seen. I felt like I could step right into the painting. My pictures don’t do it justice so click here to see professional ones. And if you have time, I would highly recommend you read about Rex, his life and other works, it’s a truly fascinating and emotional story.
I had a gorgeous few days in Wales, nothing beats wrapping up warm, winter walks and spending time with the family.
