Thirty-One Review and Giveaway





Melinda, a Thirty-One consultant, contacted me and asked me to do a review and giveaway for Thirty-One products. I chose the Organista Crossbody Bag because I was looking for a small bag that would hold everything I need to take with me, yet be out of the way so that I could use both hands when I am out and about. The Organista bag fits that description quite well. Just look at all the stuff I fit in this 9.5″ X 7.5″ bag:

This bag holds all this!

All the things pictured above, plus my camera and a pill bottle, fit in that little bag! I have been very satisfied with the functionality of the Organista. I took it to Florida on vacation with me, and I was able to have everything I need right there with me.

I like that there are slots for debit and credit cards, and window for my ID. A zippered change pocket is quite handy too.


Melinda is giving one of my lucky readers a $31 gift certificate to use to order the item of their choice from her Thirty-One Website.  To enter the giveaway, use the Giveaway Tools form below. OH! and don’t forget, if you’d like to become a Thirty-One Consultant, Melinda can sign you up! Check out her web page for details.

  1. I’d buy the large utility tote in Island Damask

    • The Large Utility Tote is on Special this month, Dawn! Spend $35 and get a LUT for only $10! (Just in case you don’t win, I mean;)…or even if you do, you can always use two!
