Guest Blogpost by Rachel Ecclestone: Wild & Free
Losing yourself in the wilderness is one of the most relaxing, best and rejuvenating things one can do. So throw on your comfiest sweater, nike’s and jogging trousers and go for it. We all need a little peace and quiet sometimes, so go and walk in those woods, for the sake of your sanity. Here’s a list of my top how to survive nature tips.
Drop the beats – I love music, you do, we all do. But nature means it’s time to listen to the chirping of birds and soft whistle of the wind
Wrap up – Feeling warm can make or break your day, make sure to bring extra layers (like your Breaking Rocks sweater) and some waterproofs (if you live in the Norway, ah).
Plasters – Always a good thing to have. Especially if you’re prone to getting blisters.
Books – nature + quiet = perfect reading locations
Bring a map – if you’re going all out, make sure to bring a map. I don’t want to be responsible for you getting lost. Please?
Food n’ Water – food and water because who doesn’t love snacking, if you’re in the mood, bring a mini barbecue and have yourself a party. Also – cookies are an excellent choice.
Let a sista’ know – If you’re going to be trekking alone, tell a friend where you’re going and when you’re going to be back. We don’t want a 96 hours situation.
Camera, yey or ney – we’re a generation of photographers, from horrible selfies to brunches and meetings. But sometimes it’s a great idea to also disconnect from all technology, bring a phone for emergencies, but otherwise No cookies for you if you touch your tech.
Breaking Rocks x Rachel Ecclestone
I’ve been working with Breaking Rocks for the past 6 months-ish and they’re a truly great bunch, and we have now collaborated on 5 very mutually beneficial sweater collaborations. They asked me if I could create a blog post revolving around one of their sweaters, this one in particular. As their items are really awesome I thought, why not. I decided to create a story in the hope that you guys would love my images. I decided to dull the greens, as I’ve never been a fan of how green reflects light.
