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.

naturally smell and mold resistant

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

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)

Sydney will NOT be outdone by her big brother. Plus, she has better legs.
A lot of (rude) people ask if Pico has had a bunch of cosmetic surgery to be this unbelievably handsome. Nope. He’s just #blessed.
One of the absolute highlights of our trip to Copenhagen was splurging on a private nighttime boat tour with @heycaptaincph 💥 Our Captain, Kaj, was incredibly charming, knowledgeable & passionate about the city. Plus, we didn’t sink.
Date night at the outstanding Otium. Besides food that is pretty much perfection, they currently have drinks such as The Marvelous Mrs Basil (my fave) and The Little Sebastian - named after, of course, Little Sebastian from Parks & Rec. 👌& 😂 & 💯 #themarvelousmrsmaisel #marvelousmrsmaisel #lilsebastian #treatyoself #parksandrec #LAfoodporn #bestofLA
The shopping in Copenhagen is epic. And everyone wears sneakers all the time & with everything. They’re my spirit animals. 😍
These guys appear to have all their ducks in a row. (Sorry.)

Today was a big day for me because I graduated from my Oncologist. Five years ago this month I had surgery to remove melanoma on my leg & I’ve been visiting him every 4 months since then for check-ups & chest x-rays to make sure I’m all clear. Today I “graduated “ from these visits because I am 5 years cancer free. Feeling pretty hashtag blessed & grateful on this epic day ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Btw, WEAR SUNSCREEN.
House(boat) envy.
More mad Danish style 💥
Copenhagen gets me. #dogsrule
I’ve seen some stellar restaurant design in my time, but I’ve gotta say that this place takes the cake. Er.... smorrebrod. I was told by a proud employee that its design is based on a church, as a place to worship food. It’s warm and beautiful and inviting and super special. I’m not exaggerating when I say it was an honor to experience this place first hand. Thank you, #somebodyfeedphil , for the hot tip. 🔥 🔥🔥
Just confirming for y’all that Copenhagen lives up to its rep as a gastro powerhouse. Aamanns makes their own schnapps (called Snaps here) and it is fabulous ... check out all the different concoctions brewing 💥💥💥
