The magic that is Towel Time.

So here’s a little something about me that you just might not know (unless you’ve lived with me): I LOVE sitting in my towel after I shower. I mean, I LOVE IT. I pretty much can’t function without what I deem as “Towel Time.”

Every day my morning schedule goes a little something like this: wake up drowsy and/or exhausted. go directly to the shower. get out of the shower and into my towel. stay in my towel while I enjoy a bowl of cereal and some Today Show. eventually realize clothes are necessary before leaving the house and I’m on my way.

The best part of that whole thing is by far Towel Time. I don’t know when I actually started doing it (probably in high school) but it really became a thing, a trademark of mine even, in college. I could seriously sit in my towel for HOURS. I think my record was actually like six hours or something of just me and my towel (and my underwear of course, don’t want to give an accidental show, haha) enjoying an SVU marathon. Like some people would actually walk in and out of our room and I’d hang out, totally cool in my towel.

I can’t really explain it, but sitting around lounging in my towel just calms me. It totally relaxes me and gets me ready for my day, my afternoon, my whatever.

So. Sometime this weekend or during your weekday or the next time you have an extra twenty minutes or so to spare I highly recommend taking the time to just sit in your towel. Enjoy some morning coffee or an afternoon TV show, whatever it is you do do it with a towel on and your day will get just a little bit better, I guarantee it (okay guarantee is a strong word, I highly support it and its effects, ha).

Enjoy and happy towel timing!


happy weekend!

  • Um, me too!!! I’m having Towel Time right now! Blogs and coffee while I mentally prepare for my day. I totally get it :)

  • Haha I love doing that!

  • This made me laugh – love it! And I remember you hanging out in your towel in our room at BlogHer/BiSC. :)

  • I totally do this all the time too!

  • LOL I actually laughed so much at this just because IT IS SO ACCURATE TO MY LIFE. God. Is this a girl thing? I love my towel too! You win though, with the six hours thing. I think I’d get too cold! I shall invent towel & socks time!

  • Towel Time is awesome. And I love this. When I have time to hang out and not in a huge rush I also enjoy sitting around in a towel, listening to music, relaxing, and just not feeling rushed for a change. It’s kind of nice.

    Ha! I prefer my bathrobe, but it’s basically the same thing, right? So cozy :)

  • THAT is amazing. I think that if I had bigger towels or my house was warmer after I got out of the shower, then I’d totally do this.

  • Bathrobe Time is a favorite part of my day, so I can totally relate!

  • I love this post! After my shower, I ALWAYS crawl back into bed for about 10 minutes (uhhh, sometimes more). I can’t help it. So I totally understand Towel Time.

    PS Sending love to your family — I know it’s been a rough time. xoxo

  • I love towel (or sometimes robe) time. Unless I’m freezing, I’m never in much of a hurry to ditch the towel for clothes.

  • let’s discuss this – I like walking around in my robe, putting a mask on and leaving my hair in a towel as I sip tea.

    Yep. It’s true.

  • haha, I love this post! I especially love that you’ve named this “Towel Time.” Amazing! And I totally get ya — I love lounging around in my towel too! So comfy and relaxing!

  • This is amazing and hilarious and exactly why I like you, lady.

  • Oh my goodness, I know exactly what you mean!!! I get so bummed when I don’t lounge around in my towel, though lately more and more I’ve been changing right away. I wonder which will win– towel time, or rushed no towel time!

  • I do this, too!! Not for six hours, though. That’s impressive.
