I’m a huge fan of bags. Especially bulky bags where I can just drop everything in them and go. Recently I had an opportunity to try out of a few Thirty-One products. I’ve heard nothing but great things from everyone who owns one or several Thirty-One products. I’m not a huge fan of bags with loud prints or crazy designs. I also don’t like the super cutesy type of bags. Narrowing down my choices on which Thirty-One products to pick turned out to be simple. With so many styles, a variety of colors, different types of bags, they had something for everyone.

After receiving my items, I quickly found the ones that turned out to be my favorite products (so far). I also found a few that are perfect for travel gear. Since I travel quite a bit, finding durable travel pieces is important to me. 


Sling-Back Bag

This is my FAVORITE bag. When going to Disney a few weeks ago with my youngest son, I wanted to take a backpack but didn’t want it to be super heavy. This sling-back bag is perfect. Not only is it light, but very durable. And, it holds up just perfect in the rain (keeping all contents inside dry). We ended up getting rained on quite a bit that day at Disney, and I may have used this bag to protect me from some of those rainfalls. I was able to pack several chargers, snacks, water bottles, lip balm, a little wallet and still had some room left over. Plus, you just sling it across your back. It has all of the essentials you need in a backpack, but it feels like a small sack easily adjusted across your back. 


Travel Gear Essentials

Packing cubes

Oh my, these would have to be my second favorite thirty-one products. Over the past year, we have stopped traveling with big suitcases when traveling by plane. With the cost of luggage fees continuing to go up, many consumers like myself are looking for ways to save as much as possible. We usually just have a backpack or a small suitcase. I have been using these packing cubes (which are totally stylish) to store our hygiene and other personal products. Not only are they the perfect size, but they do not take up a lot of room in my backpack or small suitcase. 


The Wander Tote

This tote is the perfect bag for my laptop, or for an overnight trip. It’s also great to use just running errands around time. I can drop my wallet, keys, planner, and other essentials in this bag and hit the road. Plus, I love the saying on this particular tote. 


Other products I received, but haven’t had the chance to test them out yet:

Around Town Tote– As I mentioned before I am a bag junkie. When I sit here and think about all of the bags I’m hoarding I currently own, I start to think about the song Bag Lady by Erykah Badu. Each bag has a different functionality. Or, some bags can do the same thing, but I need it in a different color. With the Around Town Tote, this bag offers stylish and professional, but also casual and will work for anyone. 


Large Utility Tote-

With summer months just around the corner, we have a few road trips planned for the boys. A large tote like this is going to come in handy. Not only can I use it to store all of our snacks, drinks, but other essentials as well. Or, if we are going to the beach for the day, this will be our beach bag. My favorite part of this tote, besides how nice it looks and the durability, is it comes with a cover. 

Overall, I have been enjoying each one of these products, and now have them in my travel gear rotation.

Welcome! I love to read about the latest social media changes. A big fan of the latest gadgets and reading up on what's going in the tech world. I value family. When I'm not sharing my latest thoughts on Autism, Life with boys and creating a fancy tablescape, you can find me over at A Mitten Full Of Savings sharing ways to save money and frugal tips. I LOVE to travel, shop and spend time doing absolutely nothing. I drink wine like a fat kid loves cake. I have a very sarcastic personality, but I mean well... (most of the time)! Thanks for stopping by!
