300 and THIRTY ONE Follower Giveaway

Hello Fabulous Followers!! I need to start by telling you, this post is late. It was supposed to be announced the day I hit 331 followers which happened shortly after I came home from Vegas. Around the same time that I broke my foot. Which inadvertently put this lil giveaway I had planned for yall on hold a few days. I contemplated waiting for 431 Followers to do it, but I want this puppy to go to someone just in time for the brand NEW school year!! 


So without further adieu, it's time for my....



I purchased my first Thirty One bag this past school year at a party one of my friend's had at their house.



Isn't she a beaut?

She is now my official teacher bag and she comes to and from school with me every day. And she's so much more than just a pretty face! (even though I'm so obsessed with the design I would probably still carry her around even if she wasn't!!) She is also large and handy!! I keep my grading, lesson plans,and my school lap top in here. This is in addition to the pens, keys, sticker, snacks, and supplies I tote around in any of the SEVEN pockets that border along the outside of the bag. She's known as the Organizing Utility Tote in the Thirty One catalog and thanks to my friend Laura from Kinder Kraziness -- one lucky follower is going to win their own Organizing Utility Tote in the pattern of their choice!!



Part two of this giveaway wins you a  Thirty One Key Fob. I got the matching blue fob on the right when I ordered my bag and I keep my school keys on it. You can spot mine hanging out in my swag drawer over here.


Use the handy dandy Raffelcopter down below to enter. 



One of the Raffelcopter options is "Pick Your Favorite Pattern". Here are step by step directions for completing this option :)

1)  Visit Laura's consultant page HERE

2)  Then click "View Our Catalog." 

3) Browse through and check out ALL the fun products!! 

4) Find the section where they list the available styles for the "Organizing Utility Tote"

5) Leave the name of the style you would choose in a comment on this blog post!


If you find some other goodies in the catalog that you would love to get your hands on just give Laura a hollar and she will be able to get you whatever you need.

a Rafflecopter giveaway


Thank you all so much for following my lil blog! It brings me more happiness than you know!!
