When I’m out with my husband, hiking or taking a local day trip, I normally travel with my point and shoot and DSLR camera. While I have a heavy-duty camera backpack that I pack with my camera gear when I’m traveling, I don’t normally haul it all around for day trips which is why I was excited to receive the Sling-Back Bag. I can store my phone, battery charger, business cards, point and shoot camera and DSLR in this handy bag and hit the road. I recently went hiking with it and loved it. It’s very comfortable and can be worn cross-body or over the shoulder. If the large compartment where I stored my Canon camera was padded, I’d use this all the time as my go-to camera bag for day trips. This bag is shown in Black but is also available in other colors and patterns and sells for $48. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/19/e1/fa/19e1fa66286ece503f59384e3418df06.jpg
I actually use this tote as a diaper bag, I have two children in diapers and it really works great for that. Aside from the way I use it, I think it's an over all great bag. A few issues: the elastic pockets on the sides seem to have lost their tension already, I don't put anything large or heavy in them to cause this, also the pocket in the back.. Wish it was larger, I don't really see the point of the zipper in the bottom of the pocket. The only other issue I have is the straps, wish they had some sort of padding on them, they tend to be a little hard on your hands if you're carrying anything heavy.
I purchased 6 of the around town totes because I adored this particular bag. I used each one gently and when not I use I stored them in my closet I noticed the other day that every single strap piping has literally disintegrated! I cannot use these bags and because it has been some time since I've purchased them I am literally out $100's of dollars. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/c3/07/5b/c3075b3fe955b1d97ae5fa159ec023b8--weekender-purse-storage.jpg?b
Recently, tote bags have been sold as a more eco-friendly replacement for disposable plastic bags given they can be reused multiples times. They have also been given away as promotional items. A study by the UK Environment Agency found that cotton canvas bags have to be reused at least 327 times before they can match the carbon expenditure of a single disposable plastic bag.[1] Meanwhile, tote bags made from recycled polypropylene plastic require 26 reuses to match.

Yes, these are all mine. I also have a kelly green one that you’ll see in another photo later in this post. I love this wallet b/c it holds a TON (it can even hold iphones of all sizes) and people often ask me if it’s Kate Spade. I love that it has the same look but at a much cheaper price point. The exterior of these wallets holds up extremely well, too. Oh, and that cork wallet? It has a shimmer in it. Love. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/a3/d1/31/a3d131a2e15fd6a0d727ca24d2362a00.jpg

I purchased a lunch thermal tote (playful parade pattern) and a zip-top organzing utility tote. I use the utility tote for carrying files and my laptop when I work in schools, but I use my lunch bag all the time! I get lots of compliments on it - instead of having my initials which is trendy right now, I got my name embroidered on it in Hot Pink. It's perfect for me... professional but fun. At first I thought it was too big, but now I love the size. I can carry lunch, dinner, and snacks in it and everything stays pretty cold because it's thermal. Just Awesome! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/c4/9d/63/c49d63c6db17aaa924387880dbb336cf.jpg

I just bought a few new things from Thirty-One, and so far am very pleased with my purchases! The first thing I bought was a medium tote. It is well made, has a gorgeous pattern, and works great for holding sweaters in my closet! It can also hold a LOT of stuff if you needed to transport snacks, craft supplies, etc! The second thing I bought was the Thermal Tote in the cute Forest Friends pattern! I was a little worried this would be a little too small to fit a lot in it, but it has a ton of room to bring my lunch to work! I love it and it is so cute! I definitely recommend their products. Some of the totes can get a little expensive but sometimes they have sales or deals!  https://i.pinimg.com/236x/37/42/8e/37428eba0ac13ce792b7d2b0cdcdd921---gifts-thirty-one-gifts.jpg
If you want the convenience of never having to change from one bag to another but still have variety in the bags that you use, then the Thirty One skirt purse is certainly a good option. These Thirty One Purses give you the ability to change the color, pattern, and design of the bag’s exterior to suit a variety of different outfits. Whether you are aiming for a more causal look, something a little more formal, or a bag that you can take to corporate events, these Thirty One Bags do not disappoint when it comes to the wide array of styles and designs that you can incorporate into just one bag.

The archetypal tote is made of sturdy cloth, perhaps with thick leather at its handles or bottom; leather versions often have a pebbled surface. Common fabrics include heavy canvas, possibly dyed, or treated to resist moisture and mold. Jute is another traditional material, though less popular. In recent decades, heavy nylon and other easy-care synthetics have become common, although these may degrade with prolonged sun-exposure. Many of today's inexpensive or free totes are often made from recycled matter, from minimally-processed natural fibers, or from byproducts of processes that refine organic materials. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/df/8c/50/df8c50fb53e10d0ee23c07668231bcda.jpg

The Glamour Case make-up bag is perfect for transporting my make-up and toiletries when I travel. The plastic lined interior protects items outside the zippered case from leaks and the roomy compartment fits everything I deem necessary when traveling. The case also has a zippered compartment for small or potentially messy items as well as a spot to hold my make-up brushes.  This product is shown in Preppy Pop but is available in a variety of colors and patterns and sells for $25, personalization is extra. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/b3/f1/74/b3f174f8f6af59bd4ab35a1f84b44ad7--mascara-tips-d-mascara.jpg
I just had a party with Monica Nickerson in West Allis, WI. She was the nicest, quickest to respond ...and most helpful women ever! She brought so many fun things to the show and was interested in what we needed. The show was perfect getting us ready for the holidays. I received the order and everything was beautiful! I’ll definitely be hosting again with Monica, she’s delightful and the products are amazing!
