This wonderful company sells exclusive products like tote bags, wallets, thermal lunch bags, coin purses, wristlet key fobs, manicure sets, scarves, purses, laptop cases and so much more! What is really cool about this company is that you can select your items to match one another or to coordinate with one another. I love looking at all of their fun colors and prints (fabric selection) as they have stylish, modern, trendy and classic selections available and they are all affordably priced!

My Review: Kristyn was very generous to send me the Thirty-One "Thermal Tote" in the Paparazzi Dot print for my review. This tote measures 9 1/2" high by 14" wide by 4 1/2" in depth. It features and outer front large pocket and two canvas carrying handles. The thermal tote opens up via a zipper closure (in the center) and the inside is lined in a silver colored thermal lining. I love that the bottom of this bag is flat so that my tote will stand upright when I sit it down on the table.

The outside of my tote was embroidered in red lettering and says "Let's Do Lunch!" which is totally cute and I love how that red just pops on the background! I have been using my new thermal tote as a lunch bag and I love how roomy this bag is! I do use a small ice pack in the lunch bag and then I place my beverage, sandwich, soup, fruit and snacks inside. Trust me...it holds a lot! I use the outside front flap pocket to hold my napkins, utensils and my book. (I like to read during my lunch breaks). I think this bag makes the perfect lunch bag, picnic for 2 bag or moms can certainly use it as a baby bottle bag! I load up my bag at 6am in the morning and when I take my lunch break at 12:30 in the afternoon...everything is still nice and cold. I usually take my afternoon snack break around 3 pm and trust me...my items are still nice and cold so it does a fabulous job at keeping things cool.

Thirty-One has several thermal tote styles available and you can get them in a variety of sizes and prints. What is really cool is that I look hip and stylish (at the ripe age of 43) when I carry around my tote because it looks like a beautiful handbag instead of a lunch bag! Gotta love that!

Purchasing Info: The Thirty-One Thermal Tote Bag is affordably priced at only $14.00 each. You should check out all of the beautiful prints that this bag comes in! In addition, check out the personalization guide for all of the cute fonts that you can pick out to get your Tote personalized with your name or message.

I would like to thank Kristyn with Thirty-One Gifts for sending me the fabulous Thermal Tote for my product review! I love the design, style and function of this tote!
