Turkish Towels For The Win

I have never uttered or written the phrase “For the win” until now: I was saving it for something special. And that something special has presented itself in the form of Traditional Turkish Towels.

Turkish Towels are also known as Pestemals and Foutas, which sound like delicious snacks. (fast forward to 1:14 – you won’t be sorry)

Not sure where I have been since the 18th Century when such towels first made their appearance, but I purchased them on a whim a month ago and they’ve made an awesome addition to my already fulfilling life.

They’re…

handsome

reasonably priced

super absorbent

super soft after a few washings

quick to dry 

lightweight for travel

naturally smell and mold resistant

easy to conceal in your luggage if you visit a friend who owns questionable towels, or visit Your Hometown.

Awesome & affordable gifts

Sarongs or scarves

Tablecloths

Beach-ing

Pool-ing

Gym-ing

Shower-ing

Trips to Turkey

They are much sexier to wrap around your post-swim body than a bulky Pedestrian Towel. Just ask these sexy beasts:

And, they have been known to make frequent appearances on world-famous beaches such as St. Tropez and Cannes, where people apparently aren’t allowed to carry their own umbrellas. 

Asshat.

On a recent yoga retreat to Maya Tulum, (no words) the beach towels we were advised to bring took up about 50% of our suitcases. For shame!

 Here is where I bought mine. Depending on the day, they are as low as $10 each.

After reading this, you are probably wondering how you have survived thus far without Turkish Towels in your repertoire. I’m not sure either. (slowly shakes head)

Hey there Fond Nephew ❤️ 🐕 🐶 #pompom #instapom #pomsofIG #pomeranian #pomeranianpuppy
This piece is entitled “Two Pigs”. Pig 1 (henceforth known as Dog Pig) on the left ate the entirety of his mom’s lunch today when she got up to answer the door. Mom’s lunch included many delicious onions she had patiently cooked in a garlic & wine reduction. Onions are toxic to Dog Pigs. His mom then called the vet who instructed her to bring Dog Pig in immediately for vomit induction & blood work. Dog Pig is home now and seems to be not only feeling okay but looking a bit smug. What he doesn’t know yet is that he will have to do many chores around the house to work off the $200 vet bill.
It’s a @pottedstore Christmas! ❤️
One of these chicks is a Supermodel, but I’m not sure which 🤷🏼‍♀️. #twiggy

SO EXCITED for this years Happy Pawlidays event on December 15th! Pico & I will be working the Home Dog LA table - bring your furry kids & get their photo taken with the Real Life Santa. It’s a totally fun, crazy event filled with tons of adorable pets - please come play?
Met this stunner at the Dog Park. #shibainu #shibainusofinstagram #mansbestfriend #LAdogs
By looking at him, you’d think Pico was on his feet for 7 hours today prepping for Thanksgiving. BUT NOPE THAT WAS ME.
Check out this black beauty. So majestic.
This seems like a happy photo, but in reality these guys are bathed in the eerie light the Malibu area fires are casting. So very sad for all the humans, pets & wild animals affected. Devastating.
#TheForce is strong in this one. #jedidog
It’s me bitches?
You guys. The guest room redo is complete. Come visit. ✈️🚗🚲🛶🚁🚤⛵️🚢
