I was recently given the opportunity to review an awesome tote from Thirty One. Which I have to say I am very happy with. Once my daughter was a little older I decided to downsize my handbag. I bought a super cute little pink bag that wasn’t as durable as my new Tote from Thirty One. I’m starting to think my bright idea to get a smaller handbag wasn’t the smartest move. Lets face it, just because I’m not carrying around bottles for the time being doesn’t mean that I’m not mom. I have four children, not sure what I was thinking, lol. Maybe I jumped the gun.
Before we get started let me share a little about Thirty One for those of you who are not familiar with it.
Thirty One is a direct selling company that offers some pretty awesome totes, purses, accessories, and great home organization accessories. They pride themselves on celebrating, encouraging, and rewarding other for who they are. Empowering women and families around the world. Thirty One was founded by Cindy Monroe, you guessed it a mom. She also worked and enjoyed shopping, but never had time to find the items she loves since she was always busy. She created Thirty One Gifts to bring the boutique experience to her home, with the added perks of giving women the benefit of earning income from home. Something many of us want more than anything to do.
You can sign up as a Thirty-One consultant and earn money by selling these fabulous product, having parties to get the word out. I think you’re going to love what Thirty One has to offer, if you’re someone who loves style and has the need to be more organized you have to check them out.
I have been working with the wonderful Kahna, who began with Thirty-One in December of 2009. Kahna was on the search for opportunity that provided affordable and high-value products that people would love. She was tired of working for “the man” (omg, I have to agree with her) and wanted to maintain an independence of her own.
She joined Thirty-One and knew from the start she wanted to be in the leadership role, she wanted to build a team. I think you’ll be happy to know that she is now at home running her Thirty-One business full time. You have to admire someone who knows what they want, and does what they need to get it. Really, all of us can do it. We need the necessary skills. Which is a company we believe in, the want, and the desire. Hard work pays off in the end. That’s my opinion on anything, if we try and keep our head up in the end we will look back at our journey and smile.
Kahna believes in her them she says. “they team is incredible & I work daily to help them achieve their dreams! I want you all to be blessed with such an amazing company & opportunity! And BELIEVE that you can FAR EXCEED your dreams!”
If you think you cannot go anywhere with Thirty-One, take a moment and check out all the places Kahna has been, because of her dedication to a product she believes in:

Now about the Thirty-One Tote I picked. The Retro Metro Tote in Black Happy Dot is what you’ll see me lugging all my stuff around in. That’s my super cute 8 year old daughter in the above picture. You will see Vayda Rockin the Retro Metro Tote in Black Happy Dot from Thirty-One. Vayda loves nerds, lolly pops, and pizza. Too bad she rarely eats any of them, because her mom is mean and makes her eat an apple or orange after school. Which is why she’s trying to get in the molding world at such a young age. She wants to move out on her own, and live in a house made of gumdrops, lolly pops, and gummy bears.
Vayda has been bothering me day after day to please let her be in my handbag review. She loves the bag, and also wants to show off her sparkly pink shoes. She actually made me promise not to cover them up with any of that stuff that I do to my pictures. Yup, that’s Vayda and she has been waiting over a week to be part of those post!
I have to admit, I really missed having a large tote to carry all my junk in. My husband told me, “Babe, you know you cannot take your laptop to work just because you’re handbag is big enough.” Ha-Ha – very funny, he actually knows me all to well. The thought did cross my mind, now when we travel I do not have to worry about my husband “accidently” putting my laptop in the trunk, lol.
The Retro Metro Tote is 14″H x 16.5″W x 5″D, there’s plenty of room for everything and several fashionable patterns. The totes can be used for so many other things, when my husband and I have our next child I can tell you where I will get our diaper bag. I wish I would have know about Thirty-One Totes when my daughter was younger, I looked all over the page for something just like this. I did not want to carry around a traditional diaper bag, I wanted a big fashionable tote that I could use to carry mommy stuff in as well.
I really think as a mother of 4, I need a bigger handbag. I keep thinking my kids will grow out of it. You know, “mom can you hold this”, “here mom”, “I don’t want this”, “please mom I want to go play”, or my oldest does the fake, “Mom I have to go to the bathroom,” so I have to hold something that isn’t mind, I don’t want, but get stuck with.
The Retro Metro Tote is an addition to Thirty-Ones Retro Metro Collection. The Thirty-One Tote is loaded to the max with pockets inside and outside. Which makes it perfect for school, work, or MOMS WITH KIDS! I personally love the polka dot design, I’ve always been into them. You can actually get the Retro Metro in 5 different patterns and colors.
The Retro Metro Tote by Thirty-One has just what I was looking for-Tons of room. There’s plenty of space for me to carry everything I need in this bad boy, I could probably fit my toddler in there, lol. Seriously, and the tote is super durable so I bet it would hold her too.
Now that I am a mom, I look for a handbag that I like but I also think about how it’s going to hold up, how big it is, and will it fit my needs. I used to fit my needs around the size of my bag. Like I mentioned the tote is super durable, looks fabulous, and there’s plenty of pockets both inside and out.
My Thirty-One Tote is not personalized, but you have add up to 12 characters on one line or 8 characters on 2 lines. I don’t see myself carrying a handbag with any lettering, but it did give me a good idea for a diaper bag, WHICH I WOULD ROCK!
