California Dreaming

Posted: 20/02/2013 10:50

With its cloudless skies, open beaches, warm waters and golden sunsets, Newport Beach is the definition of California living and this week at Black Tomato, we're all about teleporting you there as our lucky Cali correspondent Isabel Dexter live blogs from the wonderful West Coast. If the thoughts of rubbing sun kissed shoulders with the beautiful people, riding the waves of the Pacific and stocking up on vintage finery in stylish boutiques give you the travel bug, California is calling you - we've got a competition to send one sun-worshipper to live the good life in Newport Beach.

In the meantime, here are some slices of the O.C. life to get you in the sunny state of mind.

Stretching ten miles along the Cali coastline, Newport Beach has soft golden sands for serious sunbathers, mean waves at surfing hotspot The Wedge, a boardwalk to bike with the best of them and first-rate bars and restaurants to feed and water the happy, tanned masses. It really is a wonder that anyone ever leaves.
