As a self-proclaimed CA fanatic, I am constantly bombarded with questions of my obsession with California. Unlike my nonsensical infatuation with Australia, my obsession with California comes from a lifetime of knowledge and experience. Although California may be renown for a variety of reasons: our beaches, nightlife, a home to countless celebrities, etc...none of these reasons come close to why I love this place. I love our warm summer days and cold nights, the sense of infinitely being young and carefree, and most of all the ultimate California girl style. No I'm not taking about sporting the fake tans and multiple plastic surgeries a la Heidi Montag or the sharply dressed woman who wears heels everyday, I'm talking about the style of the girl who rides her Beach Cruiser everywhere, wakes up at the crack of dawn to surf, and who is perfectly content not doing anything to her hair for days at a time. This girl drinks smoothies by the blender-full, prefers to eat organic, listens to way too much Jack Johnson, and her favorite color is something dramatic like "Orange Sunburst". By no means am I saying that each girl from California falls under this category, but when I think of the ultimate California girl this is what comes to mind. And while I may not be the complete California girl I envision, I definitely aspire to be.
