Thirty-One Blog Party and Giveaway
A few weeks ago, I attended a Thirty-One party with consultant Cheryl Graves. After spending quite a bit of time looking through (and drooling over) the catalog, I knew I wanted to share these products with my blog readers. You know I don’t normally review products unless it’s something I really love, and I was truly impressed by the Thirty-One product line (and the company itself).
Since I can’t invite you all over to my house, I thought I’d have a BLOG PARTY instead. Let’s check out the catalog together, discuss our favorite totes and fabrics, enjoy some virtual coffee, and win some prizes (more on that in a minute)! Now’s the time to get an early start on your holiday shopping!
Here’s a quick overview of Thirty-One:
Thirty-One is a collection of fashionable, functional products like bags, totes, and organizers. There are fresh new fabrics each season and most items can be monogrammed. The company was founded by Cindy Monroe on the belief that we are all put here on this earth for a reason, and that each of us has a unique purpose. Her concept is that each of these products will help to make your life easier and more positive, and that each of them has several purposes.
And here’s what our consultant Cheryl has to say about her experience with Thirty-One:
” I’ve been a stay at home mom for a little over a year now, and like most SAHMs, was looking for a way to make some extra money and avoid daycare costs, etc. I stumbled across the Thirty-One Gifts website and adored the products, and instead of just hosting a party, I decided to jump in with both feet and just Sell It! I’ve been with the company for a little over two months now, and have had a great time getting together with friends and family for parties and sharing these fabulous products. What appealed to me so much about Thirty-One was not only is it a faith-based company, but the products are affordable, functional, and CUTE! Who doesn’t need a cute lunch tote?! The products are so versatile – I love hearing from customers what they plan on using their products for, such as car organizing, toys, etc. And they make great gifts – so fun to give a gift that is not only functional but personalized with a name or monogram! Enjoy looking at the catalog, happy shopping!”
Now, time to talk about all the great stuff that Thirty-One has to offer.
Here are some of my personal favorites:
The City Skirt Purse is a handbag with a changeable cover!
If you’re like me, I always forget something when I try to switch bags. But with a bag like this, you can keep the bag the same, and change the fabrics. There are 7 different fabrics to choose from, and you can order the basic purse in black or brown. I’m particularly loving this cute Tiered Ruffle Purse Skirt, a special fall/winter item.
I think the Cindy Tote would make an excellent diaper bag or laptop bag! This stylish and roomy tote comes in 4 different fabrics, has 2 outside pockets and 3 additional compartments. (and note the cute and coordinating accessory options!)
I ordered the Retro Metro Bag in the Mod Dot fabric (the gray dots below). My everyday handbag is a gigantic designer tote, and I’m looking forward to having something more casual for my SAHM lifestyle (but still big enough to hold all the water bottles, extra clothes, snacks, etc). I’ll be honest, I’m a complete snob when it comes to bags, but I adore the casual style of this bag, and with all of the great fabrics, I had trouble deciding! Love those dots!
In addition to great handbags, there are Organizers and Totes galore, and I could drool over the organizational possibilities of these for hours!
There’s the Organizing Utility Tote, available in 8 fabrics, with lots of room and 7 pockets. Perfect for cleaning supplies, toys, bathroom items. And guess what? The Organizing Tote is the October Monthly special, which means that when you spend $31, you can get an Organizing Tote for just $5!
The Large Utility Tote (available in 9 fabrics, pictured above full of soccer balls and below, in Boho Patchwork Paisley) is great to keep in the back of your car for grocery trips or sports practice. Also excellent for garage, toy, or towel organization. And what college kid wouldn’t love some totes like this to keep their stuff together at school?
Right now you can get the Large Organizing Tote in a limited time only Holiday Toss fabric…this would be perfect for toting around Christmas presents!
There are also baskets, lunchbags, coolers, kid products, and stationery.
And check out this snapshot of all the great fabric options!
