greystones



Sweet little short film with Melanie Laurent in Greystones, Ireland talking about how the sea plays a part in her morning routine all the while looking laid back in a big North Face anorak and a tempting stubby platinum ponytail. The film is part of a collaboration between Creme de la Mer and World Oceans Day to encourage preservation of the world's oceans. The perpetually cool Rinko Kikuchi also stars in one of the videos and leaves me craving the chilly kind of sea swim that refreshes you-but only after knocking the wind out of you until you must swim like a maniac to counteract the cold. Then again a less sadistic splash on the warm Ibiza coast like Rinko wouldn't go a miss either..

This is quite lovely. I like a lot what she says about the piano, and the portrait with the sea behind her is gorgeous.

melanie laurent is really very lovely. It's definitely chilly sea bathing weather in sydney at the moment. There's this club called "icebergs" at bondi beach that is kept cold all year round (hence the name! they used to put ice in there to keep the temperature down). I find it bizarre but also tempting when i see people swimming in that freezing water early in the morning.

I miss swimming in the ocean so much! Looking forward to paddling in some lidos this summer, although it isn't quite the same. This is also tempting me to go much, much blonder.
