Thirty-One & St Jude

As I have mentioned already, I accepted runDisney's Dopey Challenge as a St. Jude Hero! My goal is to raise $4000 before I race at Walt Disney World in January.

A mom friend of mine is a consultant for Thirty-One Gifts and they always have the cutest bags, totes and thermals so I asked if she'd be willing to donate a portion of a party's sales to my St Jude fundraising, and she said yes! Ten percent of the total sales will be directly donated to my goal as a St. Jude Hero. I hope you'll like the items as much as I do, and I even plan to buy a few items as Christmas gifts so keep that in mind too.

I would like to highlight a couple of my favorite items!
Organizing Utility Tote, $30
Thermal Tote, $18
The Thermal Tote seems to be the number one item I see with many. It measures approximately 9.5"H x 14"W x 4.5"D making it perfect for packing heavy snacks or lunch to take to the park. It currently is available in 10 different prints and can be personalized with embroidery. The Thermal Tote is also very reasonably priced at $18. For me, it's the perfect size to keep a few water bottles extra cold in the car so I can cool down after a long outdoor run with (or without) Brewer. 

Another popular item many of my friends rave about is the Organizing Utility Tote. I have seen this tote used as a diaper bag, to carry items to swim class and just keep another mom organized as she juggles daily life. It's a decent size without being too big, measuring approximately 15.5"W x 10.25"H x 6.5"D. It is very spacious with seven side pockets! There are 20 different prints available, including plenty of solids that coordinate with the Thirty-One Collegiate Spirit Collection.

August has a great customer special too! If you spend $35 you can choose any purse from the new Girl on the Go Collection for 50% off. There are smaller and larger options, for all ages. The colors, prints and fabrics available will make my own decisions a little more difficult since so many are catching my eye.

Lastly, as a small gesture of my tremendous thanks to those ordering from this online party I will be giving away one Party Thermal! This is currently a Hostess Exclusive item and is not available for retail purchase, unless you'd like to host your own Thirty-One party with my consultant, Summer! Everyone who places an order before the closing of this party on Friday, August 30th will be entered into and have a chance to win this Party Thermal, in the print of their choosing.
Party Thermal, valued at $75

Kat, also check out the Picnic Thermal Tote. It has more of a sturdy base sice it has 4 walls, a since it can hold up to 3 2L soda bottles it's definitely tall enough for a wine bottle!
