An opportunity arose for me to get my hands on some traditional Turkish Style Towels. Made from 100% cotton, they are super absorbent and they dry super fast; the biggest ‘catch’ is they are not “terry cloth”. The fabric is straight, flat, woven cotton. Plus, they are gorgeous!
I want to buy bolts of this fabric and make everything out of Turkish cotton. I mean everything like, my bed sheets, shirts, a big robe, towels and just so much more.
This summer the new habit will be when stepping out of the shower or out of the pool. One towel I will wrap around my waist and the other bunched up around my neck to dry my hair and then I am off.
Best way to dry off is to just let the fabric soak up the moisture from your skin instead of vigorously rubbing away.

This song has been on my FAV LIST for a while. Since last summer actually. It has also been part of any moment or routine where I need a boost.
After first discovering this song during an episode of Whiskey Cavalier. There was a scene that took place in a Ghanaian market place. The market, reminded me of the days when I was in Cameroon staying with my grandparents and I would sneak off to a similar style market to get a Mambo Chocolate bar!
This song makes my heart happy and my butt wanna wiggle. So it was a great addition about half way though my running playlist.
But seriously, if you need a pick-me-up, this song is what you need.
