Aloha Maui Giveaway

This giveaway has now ended. The winner of the giveaway is Terri B. Congrats, Terri!

Aloha! I am back to talk about my incredible birthday trip to Maui. I wish I could celebrate with a trip to Hawaii every year! Being in Hawaii certainly eased the sting of being one year older. It may have been my birthday, but I want to give you a gift. Usually my giveaways are something I pick up from the place I visited, but I thought I would change it up this time by giving away something I bought for the trip and absolutely loved.

In searching for the perfect beach towels (because every beach trip needs the perfect beach towel, obviously), I ran across recommendations for Turkish towels. Because Amazon Prime is my BFF, I eventually found and ordered these: and, orange for me and blue for Brandon.

I know it may be weird to get excited about a beach towel, but this one is seriously the best! It’s thin and lightweight so it’s easy to pack, the fabric is soft and you can easily shake out the sand, it dries quickly while also being absorbent, it’s a great size, and let’s not forget the most important thing, it is stylish and colorful. I did, after all, find the towels because my initial internet search was “cute beach towel.” A girl’s gotta have priorities.


The towels held up wonderfully at the beach, in the wash, and in subsequent trips to the river. It could also make a great picnic blanket or even a sarong.

If I haven’t already sold you on how awesome a Turkish towel is, today I’m giving one reader a chance to win one! For this giveaway, the winner will get to choose a Dandelion Textile Turkish Towel from Amazon in any available color (up to a $25 value). There are so many options: Yellow, Turquoise, Purple, Green, Blue, Pink, or even plain old Gray if neutral is more your thing. Seriously, there are well over a dozen color options. Check out all of the options here. To enter the giveaway, comment on this post with your must have beach essential(s). Or your favorite Turkish towel color. Or your favorite beach. Or even why you hate the beach, although in that case I might think you are crazy! The giveaway ends Saturday June 18 at 11:59 pm PST. A winner will (probably) be announced the following day. Good luck! And if you don’t win, you should probably buy one anyway!

  1. I am not sure what my essential is as of now… Probably my always-connected-to-my-hand water bottle. But that is always around. So beach-wise specifically (minus the obvious sunscreen) would have to be a huge towel or blanket to shield me from all things sand! I am not a huge fan of sand. BUT I am going to Cozumel in 2 weeks, so I am gonna have to get over that!!! Yay! So I really need your towel! 😉
    I really like Miami Blue, Mango Orange and purple!!

  2. How fun! Never even heard of Turkish towels! Would love to try one! Of course the Miami Blue (teal) is my favorite! Any beach is amazing, but of course, Navarre tops the list! And beach essential…being surrounded by people who you love….sharing in the beauty, peacefulness, sunshine, and crash of the waves that God has blessed us with! Great post!

    1. Navarre is pretty special 🙂 Speaking of beaches we should reserve (for free!) the condo one of these days for a roommate reunion!

  3. My favorite beach essential is a water proof bag for all of my valuables like my phone and cash. I also must have a large (like super large) beach bag to hold all of my other things. For example, towels, sunscreen, chapsticks, a book, toys for my kids and yummy snacks!

  4. My beach essential is definitely’s actually my essential anytime I walk outside. 🙂
    Loved your post about the towels. I checked them out and they look so fun. The Orange is my favorite

  5. My beach essential is my camera. You can’t go to the beach and not have a camera. It’s just too beautiful! Teal towel, my favorite beach out of the two I have been to…… Well I can’t say I a favorite… I have been to Cancun Mexico and the Oregon coast. I love them both although they are completely different.

  6. My beach essential is a good beach umbrella to keep me from getting completely fried by the sun. Another thing I want to get is a Tommy Bahama beach chair. It has a nice headrest and looks super comfy. I went to Laguna Beach in April and I swear every single person had one.
