As our plane followed the coastline up from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara, the aerial views made my heart skip a beat: it was all sparkling blue Pacific ocean lined with golden sand and white surf, leading up to hills tinged bright pink in the light of the setting sun. Flying over sailboats, palm trees, and the Santa Barbara pier gave me such a sense of happiness. And the views just kept getting sweeter, with the city piled into the hills as a backdrop to the ocean-front cliffs of The Mesa, tumbling right into the sea. California is definitely my kind of paradise. Moreover, I stepped off the plane to a balmy, sunny day—this is why I love California Christmases so much!

Love the stained glass look? Then check out this stained plexiglass house created by Tom Fruin. An installation artist born in Los Angeles and currently based in Booklyn, Tom created “Kolonihavehus”. Made of steel, found plexiglass, and paint, this colorful house was installed in the plaza of the Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen. So cool!
