Holiday Giveaway - Aurorae


It's time for the Thank You To My Followers holiday giveaway hop.


It's Thanksgiving week and a wonderful opportunity  to say Thank You.    If you follow my little blog or if you've ever read and taken the time to comment, I truly appreciate it.  I've enjoyed connecting with all of you since beginning this journey last year and hope to meet many more

Disclaimer:  I was provided with an over-sized Beach/Swim towel from Aurorae in exchange for an honest blog post review.  The opinions expressed are my own.

"At Arorae Aqua, we aspire to offer products that enhance your life by enhancing your experience with water...whether it be for sport and fitness, leisure, or relaxation."   Check-Check-Check.


As much time as I spend at the lake water skiing, floating around in the backyard pool, at the beach, and now crazily pool running -- I always need a good towel.  On summer weekends, our pool gets pretty crowded.  Of course, everybody wants a nice dry towel.  {Picky, aren't they?}  So when anyone asks me about gift suggestions, I always say "Beach Towels"!

As I do with anything new, I washed this towel prior to use.  No problems there.  The towel did not look very big in the package, but I was amazed by how large it unfolded to be -- 32 x 68.  That's larger than my other beach towels.  The towel was quite thin and I wondered how absorbent it would be.  However, I thought the folded up compact size would be perfect for the boat! 


I tucked the towel into a small bag and took it with me to the Y for pool running.  After being water logged for over 2 hours, it felt nice to wrap up head to toe in this soft microfiber towel.  And, no worries about the thin profile -- it was very absorbent.  After completely drying myself (because it was cold outside!) this towel didn't feel heavy or even that wet   My traditional cotton towels get soggy and heavy. When I returned home, I hung it on the railing and it dried quickly.  This feature will certainly be a huge hit in our back yard next summer.

The only negative thing I can say about this towel is...it made me want to go to the lake!

The wonderful people at Aurorae were very generous to allow me to give a towel to one lucky reader! They make these towels in beautiful shades reminiscent of waterfront locations.  The one I received is called Sanibel Sunrise, a lovely light gold hue.  Their logo is also prettily embroidered on the towel.  I thought that was a very nice touch!

  30. I loved the Mediterranean Seas blue color! I think this towel would be perfect to keep in my RV where space is limited and the towels do not dry out as fast hanging on the back of the small bathroom door. Plus my towel would be different from the rest of the family so maybe they will leave it alone!!!
