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.

 You can use them for…

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)

Anyone else take the Instagram survey & totally unleash on how shitty IG has become since Facebook took over? That felt really good. 💪🏽 But... how I miss the old IG. 😕
Sydney, untrusting.
Because my fans demanded it (they didn’t, plus I don’t really have a fan base I’m aware of), here are photos of New Years Day 2019 Pico Maigret. Yes, he’s definitely looking into your souls & he’s not sure he likes what he sees. His words, not mine. 🤷🏼‍♀️
