Diaper Bag and More

I can’t count the number of times I have been asked “Does Thirty One have a diaper bag?”   I think back to when Belinda was little (MANY years ago) and I’m not even sure I had one.  I’m sure I did but it was probably the same bag I sent her to daycare with Monday through Friday.  Even back then I was practical (okay, sometimes).  I wanted a bag I could use for many things, not just one use and then giveaway, sell or toss.

Thankfully, Thirty One has SEVERAL options to meet the different needs of new moms.  From the busy mom on the go to the working (out of the home) mom.

It is all about your style…. We have lots of different totes to meet whatever the demand including ones Dad is willing to carry.  Here are some basic options:

The  Number 1 requested “diaper bag” is the Zip Top Organizing Utility Tote.  It has seven pockets for all your essentials, plus a convenient zipper to keep everything safe and secure!

 

My favorite is the Cindy Tote.  This signature tote can hold almost anything. Named after our Founder, President & CEO, Cindy Monroe, this has been one of our most popular totes for years. It’s roomy enough for all your essentials and stylish enough to carry wherever the day takes you! Easy to transition from Baby to Momma!

For those who would prefer a Backpack, we have you covered with the Going My Way Backpack.  Get ready for school, work or a family outing with this roomy backpack featuring plenty of pockets and adjustable shoulder straps for a comfy fit. The simple design and choice of prints makes it perfect for moms, dads and kids, too! 

Did you notice these can be personalized too? The best part is when you don’t need a diaper bag any more, it is still a GREAT bag to use every day.

Looking for something a little smaller to take on those short trips to the park?  Why not try the Sling-Back Bag?  So easy to grab and go, this bag offers a great hands-free backpack option, and one shoulder strap can easily be converted for right- or left-handed use. Put the pockets to work to house all your essentials, and you’re set for the day.

So, which bag will meet your needs?  Not sure, let’s talk.  Send me a message and I will help you decide which one will best fit your needs.

Whose ready to shop??? Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Happy Labor Day!

The official end of summer.  For many the school year started early for others it is the last few days before the new school year.

Do you know why we celebrate Labor Day? Honestly, I never really got it. How could I relate to the “labor movement”. WHY was Labor Day created?

Labor Day was created by the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Did you know that the world of not only direct sales but self-employed individuals is growing every day and making an impact on the world.  For many years, direct sellers were not the people who were cheered for what they have given to their country. We immediately thought about those who tirelessly work everyday to support and provide for their families. I thought about all of the phenomenal women I have met on my Thirty One journey who have been an inspiration to so many.

Our founder, Cindy Monroe, whose vision opened the doors for many to change their own personal lives.  These women not only started their own business, reached for the stars and made their dreams come true – they shared the gift with others. As their teams grew, the lives they touched were not only their recruits but their customers, hostesses and their communities. They shared our amazing products and their “WHY” so that others could begin to dream. My Sponsor, my Director but most of all my friend, Hope Shortt helped me to see the potential in myself and has encouraged me along the way. Her love and support has helped many of us to strengthen our walk with God so that we are able to provide for our families with this “purse thing”. The women on my team who despite personal challenges are overcoming obstacles to provide additional income for their families. Thirty One CELEBRRATES – ENCOURAGES – REWARDS those in the community as well who are not a part of our Thirty One family by giving back in so many ways.

Happy Labor Day!

Manifesting Magnets

Make today count 5 2014  2014-05-17 12.26.58

It is Throwback Thursday!  This is from a Thirty One Leaders training held about 2 years ago.  Cindy Monroe joined us in the afternoon and NO, I didn’t cry this time when I met her.  What an AWESOME day!

I have been reading (and re-reading The Secret) as well as getting the daily teachings on my phone.  Do you use Manifesting Magnets?  I have become obsessed with them, in a good way.

It is all about ASKING, BELIEVING and RECEIVING all that the universe has for us.  In the past, I was great at asking but when it came to truly believing in my core, well that wasn’t happening.  Did I mention that I am not great at receiving BUT awesome at giving?  I know there are a lot more of you out there like that, right?

Some have not read The Secret, but I have heard them talk about manifesting magnets which is along the some line.  You are using your focus and energy to bring positive results.  Maybe you are looking for money, opportunity, love, or harmony.  Whatever your desire, you can manifest it (ask for it).  Do you think that I am crazy?  Are you saying “I keep asking for  XYZ and nothing happens”?  Remember it is a 3-step process not just 1!

I came across these  3 manifesting magnets:

1.      Put a gratitude alarm on your phone that says “What am I grateful for right now?”  (gratitude is the gateway to positive manifesting)

2      Decide every day to do 1 small thing for someone else  (you instantly align yourself with positive flow when you do)

3.     Choose an empowering image and use it as the wallpaper on your phone, tablet and computer (this creates a trigger to put you in a state of positive vibration and manifestation)

These 3 simple steps have power in them.  By building manifesting magnets into your life, you will open the flow to your desire.  By doing these simple things, you will also actually start to BELIEVE that your desire will come to fruition.

The last step is to be ready to receive the blessings.  A fierce cheerleader, Eryka Peskin, gave me a great tip that I have been practicing ALOT.  When someone pays me a compliment, I say “thank you, it is true”.  Does it sound cocky?  To some it might.  The reality is that is how I am learning to RECEIVE and BELIEVE at the same time.    I mean how many of you receive a compliment, say thank you BUT truly don’t believe what the person has said. OR you counter it with “thank you BUT”.  STOP!  You are manifesting negativity instead of positivity.  I know it isn’t easy.   Believe me it has taken me weeks.  It can happen though and when it does, you will be amazed at how you feel.

So, set the alarm on your phone (for random times if possible).  Do something nice for someone each day.  Post that picture of what you want where you will see it all of the time.  Don’t just post the picture and glance at it.  Take a moment to actually FEEL what it will be like to have that item.  For me, it is a check – some extra unexpected cash for National Conference and a short trip to see my daughter.  I believe that it will come.

I have the power in me to make it happen and so do you!  What is your desire?  Have you asked the Universe for it? Do you believe that it will come? And are you ready to receive it when it does?

I would love to hear your thoughts on manifesting magnets.  Have  ThirtyOne-derful day!

Promising Picks

pillows

For all of those who are wondering… YES, the pillows are available through Thirty One Gifts.  They are part of the “Promising Picks” collection.  I have been blessed with the opportunity to share this collection with my customers.  There are about 7% of Thirty One consultants nationwide who have been given this chance to share with you.

The purpose of the “Promising Picks” collection to see what products our customers would like to see in future Thirty One catalogs.  I know many of you are thinking “I thought Thirty One was purses and totes”.  The answer is YES, we are BUT we are so much more.

If you go back to the early years of Thirty One Gifts when Cindy Monroe started the company, you will see there were actually very few purses.  We were all about gift items – candles, jewelry, ceramics and more.  I love hearing how Cindy traveled to a hostess home and set up a boutique.  She brought along some shelves and products given guests a unique opportunity to shop.  It was all about sharing the AWESOME products with passion and enthusiasm.  Check out some of these Throwback Thursday pictures to see some of things offered by Thirty One Gifts in the past.
