LEGENDS OF THE SANDBAR on your coffee table

No Comments 55Factory, art, lifestyle, my words, review, travel

Legends of the Sandbar by Christopher Bickford

If you ever needed an excuse to learn how to surf, this coffee table book is it! However, this is not just a picture book- even though it contains some of the most stunning images of surf culture that I have seen.

Photographer and author Christopher Bickford, has made a home for himself in the sleepy Outer Banks in North Carolina, and uses it as a base to surf, write and collect documentary images. His book Legends of the Sandbar is an insider’s view of life on the Banks.

I’m not always first off the blocks when it comes to history, but after my visit to the beautiful French Loire Valley, I can see a bit of a castle spotting addiction coming on. See what I got up to for 55Factory.net here:

Au revoir the Loire Valley, hello British Summer Time

Superdry

Superdry for the Supercool kids, and the Loire Valley for the grown ups….

If anyone has never visited the beautiful Loire Valley in France yet, I can highly recommend it. Just having returned from a whistlestop three nighter, I wish it had been longer, and don’t get me started on the one extra night I tagged on in Paris. Too much to do, too little time!!! Full travel feature coming soon.

In the meantime, it’s high time we had some sunshine, and I love this campaign for Superdry #thenightisyoung .. I’m not as young as I used to be (who is?!) but I am still young at heart, and this makes me all reminiscent for my heady days which turned into nights which turned into days.

The New Garconne for modern girls who like to dress like boys!

No Comments 55Factory, fashion, fblogger, lifestyle, my words, news, review, sara darling, style, Stylist

A must read book for 21st century tomboys…

Meaning: A young woman of the 1920s who rebelled against conventional ideas of ladylike behaviour and dress. Otherwise interpreted as girls with attitude and a great sense of personal style.

Thankfully, this type of woman is still around today, and if you’re a slouchy trousers, white shirt and brogues kind of girl, this book will resonate with you.
