So I have to be honest. Until approximately 5 months ago. I hadn't ever even heard of ThirtyOne Gifts. Originally heard about it from my cousin, since one of her friends sold it. I found out then, that the products are semi expensive, and very nice looking.
When Kimberly started selling ThirtyOne, she approached me about doing a review and giveaway. I decided it was worth a shot. For the review, she provided me with a Thermal tote (on sale on her website this month only!) Originally the item was back ordered. The first thing i noticed, was the minute they found out it was on back order, they sent me a letter, telling me so, and giving me an approximate time when it would be delivered. I have yet to find another direct sales company that will do that (although it doesn't mean they aren't out there). I waited in anticipation for my item to show. ThirtyOne Gifts then sent me an email when the item was being shipped, with a tracking number, to know where it was at. It arrived in TWO DAYS!! Fastest Shipping I have ever seen!
The first thing I noticed when I opened the package, was how durable it was. Made of tough material, while still being stylish! I had chosen Paparazzi Dot as my design, with the personalization of RRM on the front. The embroidery was done very nicely. No screw ups or lose strings. The inside of this tote is insulated, to be able to be used as a cooler, or a lunch tote. Very nicely made, and seems to be holding together well!
I do not work out of the home, so I decided to use this as a camera bag. Its very roomy inside and has a front pouch for me to be able to put papers, or other items in. My camera fit great inside, along with extra batteries, lenses, business cards etc. I've carried it everywhere with me, and gotten several comments. It has already gotten dirty a few times, and I have found the material is so great, All I have to do is take a wet rag to wipe it clean! In fact I loved ThirtyOne so much, that I signed up on Kimberly's team! They are such a caring company, they called me to make sure I got everything okay, and make sure that I was pleased with the items. It seems all of their items are made heavy duty while still being stylish!
In light of this review. Kimberly has decided to do a giveaway! The winner will get their choice of either a Thermal Tote (like mine) or a Lunch Tote. Many of you might ask, whats the difference? Well here is your answer:
"the thermal tote is larger/longer by about 4 inches. The lunch tote is taller than the thermal tote but not as long. Both have the thermal insulation."
Here is my Thermal Tote -
