Nothing quite like that first storm of autumn to make your heart beat a little faster. My husband and I decided to take a little drive up to the Perth hills to watch it roll in. We were sprinkled by the most delicate rain drops as we perched ourselves on a boulder and watched the storm clouds swallow up the city.  As the sun began to set, the golden light beamed upon us and we inhaled that glorious fresh scent that always comes with a storm. There’s just something about driving up to the top of the hills and looking out to the city and ocean that makes everything so simple and clear.  It’s only 20 minutes away really, but it’s like a mini holiday. I’m so thankful for the perspective it gives me. It’s an opportunity to really breath out and exhale all the layers that have been building within. To let go of the stuff that really doesn’t matter.

All rugged up on this stormy evening, I layered my Free People dress with my Freebird Collection cardi. The perfect cardi to throw on over everything! So soft and cosy. I chose some vintage turquoise, Spell + Minc Collections rings, my latest fave Goldbarr necklace, and a Little pieces of Hope ring. I absolutely love all that this artist represents. She is consistently giving back to the world. Love supporting people who are conscious in helping out others in need.

I hope you all get some time to explore, release and shed those layers that so often build up with everyday stressors. Find the magic in the simple beauty of nature. Allow it to infuse it’s healing into every cell of your being and evoke the bliss of simplicity.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
