I adore bags of all sorts.

Purses, diaper bags, tote bags, bags under my eyes…okay not that last one. But as for the rest, I love them all the more if they come in bright prints.

(Which, by the way, almost always means that my purse doesn’t in the slightest match my outfit. And I’m okay with that.)

Due to my bag obsession, I naturally love Thirty-One Gifts.

I was actually a latecomer to the party – they’ve been around for eight years, but I first discovered them when a sweet friend gave me a personalized Thermal Tote as a baby present for Noah.

Besides the fact that I was thrilled to have another excuse to carry around a brightly-printed bag, I had no idea how much a thermal tote was necessary for a baby – I’m pretty sure I’ve used it at least twice a week since he was born, but it still looks brand new.

Thirty-One does have a lot of fun bags of all sorts (purses, thermal totes, utility tote bags, laptop cases…), but they also have other products like stationery, home organizers, and aprons.

And you can also add embroidered personalization to most of the products, making them more meaningful to you and for gifts for others.

I love that the name Thirty-One comes from Proverbs 31, to celebrate hard-working women who are compassionate, giving, and inspirational to their families and the people around them.

I also really appreciate the fact that the founder was a working Mom that set out to meet a need that she had: a way to buy cute, boutique-like products after work hours. She also wanted to provide a way that women could make extra income for their families.

Thirty-One offers two ways to purchase their products: either online, or by hosting a real or virtual party, which also lets you earn free products.

They also have a special for the month of February, where if you order $31 worth of products, you get 31% off of any product of your choice!

There’s only one thing I love more than bright prints, and that’s dual coordinating prints, like these awesome thermal totes:


Colors like those just make me happy!

104_6775My friend Emily is a Thirty-One Consultant…

(Which means she has access to all the pretty prints…so jealous!!)

…and she graciously offered to give away a tote stuffed with fun and inspirational goodies to two of you!

You will have your choice between one of these six bags:


There are four Thermal Totes to pick from, which are perfect for carrying around lunch, drinks, and accessories for kids.

Or, the other two bags are Cinch-It-Up Thermals, which are bigger than most thermal bags, and can hold either a gallon jug or 12 cans of Coke.

(Or Soda or Pop, if you’re not from around here.)


Aren’t they fun??

  1. I <3 31 Gifts, and would love to win this! My son really needs a new lunch box, and those thermal totes work great!

  2. I love their utility totes, and I heard that they re-designed the support system to make them stand up better. Even more awesome!

  3. No need to enter me, but I can’t let anything about 31 go without commenting! I LOVE all of their bags! I have hosted two parties- the last 2 Novembers and both were over $1400. Why? Because they are awesome! So, I already have an entire storage room full of these gems, and I use them all the time! Excited for the lucky winner- they will love it! ;)

  4. I just looked at the new catalog, and I think I *need* everything in it! ;)
    But seriously, I love the large utility totes for all the weddings and events I do!

  5. I love 31 Gifts, as I too, have an obsession with bags. (Something else I didn’t realize we had in common.) I recently “lost” my consultant, so I’m glad to know Emily is one.

  6. Would love to be entered in the give away. I know a young mom who’s husband lost his job. She was able to provide an income for them as a 31 consultant.

  7. I would love to have the organizer wallet with the long strap. Ever since I had my daughter, now 11, I got hooked on carrying a similar wallet in the diaper bag or now my purse. When I go the store I grab it, leave the larger purse in the car, sling it across my body and shop hands free!

  8. I follow you on Facebook. Thanks for the laughs and the sweet memories of my own daughter that your stories remind me of.

  9. I love Thirty-One!! I am actually considering becoming a consultant. I love the thermal lunch bags (great teacher gifts!!). I follow you on Twitter, too. :)

    1. That’s great! They seem like an awesome company to work with. Do you want me to connect you with Emily to get a feel from another consultant as to how it works? Or do you have someone local you’re working with?

      1. Thanks so much! I do have another consultant I am working with but I would love another perspective. I would love to hear from Emily. Thanks!

  10. It’s all about Celebrating, Encouraging and Rewarding women! I love hearing all the comments on Thirty-One—I love this company! Anyone interested in hosting a party, or learning more about the company, please feel free to email me…I’d LVOE to talk with you more!

  11. “Matching”? What is matching? Is your bag supposed to match your outfit? Because I’ve only got two bags right now – one is a green and purple backpack I got in grade 9 and the other is a khaki shoulder bag that I bought because the bottom had fallen out of the bag that I was carrying. I kind of fail at the whole “girly” thing.

  12. I love bags, purses too. There were so many cute things in the Catalog. But I love the thermal totes, and the organizer totes. The Skirt purse was adorable too.

  13. Now following you on Facebook! It’d be great if I won, but I can’t make up my mind which one I like the best…. I love the black & white cinch sack too!

  14. Your blog is my favorite blog to visit. I sometimes have my teenage boys read your blog because of your creative and expressive writing style. I’m hoping it’ll spark some creativity into their writing.

    1. Thanks!! :) Blogging definitely does give an extra incentive to write. I’d love to teach a high school course on “Blogging for English” sometime… if I could ever find the time!

  15. Well I’m more behind then you because I’ve never heard of these before! But I’ve always wanted a thermal tote for picnics and bbq’s and stuff. That would just be handy to have!

  16. I have a thing for 31. It isn’t right and I probably need help, but this isn’t the time. Glad you have found your way. :)

  17. This is a good way to get comments. :) I looked at the catalog. I like the little totes for holding things. But, to be truly sold, I need to see this product. :) Besides Feb. 13 is my birthday.

    By the way, I am hosting a vault party. You made me do it. :)

  18. Those are adorable! Always, always, always need a new bag to carry kiddo food. Because, we all know you can’t leave the house with less than a 3 day supply of food for a 2 hour trip.

  19. I share your affinity towards non matching brightly colored purses and bags! And I love your blog, it makes me happy!

  20. wow, I’d never heard of this company! I’m not usually a big fan of entering giveaways, but this might pull me out of my shell….

  21. After looking at the catalog, I think I’m hard pressed to decide which I like best – the totally awesome tote, the around town blanket, or the skirt purse. I really like their prints too!

  22. Is “Coke” used for all pop or just for Coke?? :-)
    I’m always interested in a new bag & I love the company name and philosophy!

    1. EVERYTHING is Coke here. If you say, “Can you bring me a Coke?”, you will invariably get the answer, “Sure! What kind? I have Coke, Sprite, or Dr Pepper!”
