This is so unlike me. Normally I am the one of the first ones to arrive at any given event*, the one to panic when I haven't left at least 30 mins to complete the 15 minute drive to dancing, and the one who feels super awkward leaving the house at 9.30pm to go out because I feel like half the night has already passed. And yet, here I am, writing about beach towels as we enter the Autumn months.
Fortunately for me, I live in WA, A.K.A. the unofficial sunshine state. We might have just began our demise (yes, demise) into Autumn, but I am still cracking a fair sweat walking from my air-conditioned room, to the letter box and back. I think the official "sunshine state" award should be handed over to it's rightful owner now Queensland. With summer sticking around these parts for a little longer than normal, we still have plenty of beach days, river days and pool days ahead of us. And if we don't, I am sure we will all just migrate to Bali and chase the warmth anyway.
I spent a good part of my summer rediscovering the beach this year. In a very un-Mon-like move, I didn't visit the beach once last summer (I know, disgusting). I made it my prerogative to get to the beach as much as I could this summer, just like Shania Twain made it her prerogative to "have a little fun and, whoah oh oh". With my seaside visits still a weekly ritual, this Eco Cotton peshmatel has been quite the God send. As a female, we tend to take the kitchen sink with us where ever we go, so lugging a bulky beach towel, along with our kitchen sink, to the seaside isn't the most convenient. This super soft, ultra light towel does exactly what a towel should with 5x less bulk and the ability to fit easily into any given bag. The best part is that when Autumn well and truly sets in and I am yearning for some sun, I can pack this baby into my case and jet off somewhere less Autumn without a hitch, and with a stylish beach towel in tow!
* I have been known to show up 5 minutes before the time given on the invite, consequently making me the first person to arrive - even before the birthday girl!
