Hi friends!  I am really excited to share some information about one of my July feature sponsors, Thirty-One Gifts!  This shop has got some of the cutest little bags, storage, wallets, home items, stationery and just all around great items to be given as gifts (for a friend, relative or yourself).  Most of their products come in an array of trendy designs and you can personalize them too!  Even better is that you can work with Julie, a big sweetheart, in making sure that the product you want fits all of your needs!  She’d be your own independent consultant~!  Before we get to the giveaway, let’s get to know her a little bit better…

{MEET JULIE, INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT}

1) Tell me a little bit about yourself and how you got started with Thirty One Gifts?
I started my Thirty-One Gifts business three years ago and have loved every minute of that time! I joined Thirty-One because I was looking to make some extra money for my car payment and now three years later the business has enabled me to retire from teaching (because who doesn’t dream of retiring before they turn 30?!?) In my free time I love running, traveling, reading, cooking, entertaining, and spending time with my family.

2) What is the best gift you have ever received?
The best gift I ever received was a mattress pad warmer my mom bought me after I moved to Philadelphia from Southern California. The winters were a HUGE adjustment for me and that mattress pad warmer was the gift that kept giving winter after winter.

3) What are your top 3 favorite fashion trends right now?
Maxi dresses, wedges, and jean jackets

4) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

    I left teaching this past January for the corporate world. I’m so envious of Julie retiring from education before the age of 30! Good for her! (I’m following her Pinterest now.)

    I’ve never heard of Thirty-One before which leads me to believe there isn’t an overabundance of reps in my area which leads me to think that I may need to consider becoming a consultant. I’m impressed with what I see.

    I’m clicking now to find out what I need to do to host a Thirty-One party!

    Oh, and I’m sure eyeballing the Retro Metro Bag.
