Thirty-One Gifts On a Stroll Bag Review {+ GIVEAWAY}

I received an On a Stroll bag for my review. I received no other compensation for this review and all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

Have you heard of Thirty-One Gifts yet?

I had heard of it but wasn't sure what all of the hype was about... that is until consultant Christine Sebesta asked me to check out her website, and I was hooked!


I was thrilled when she asked me to review the On a Stroll bag. 


If you haven't heard, Thirty-One Gifts was formed with a simple goal of helping women by giving them an opportunity to own their own business. It was started by Cindy Monroe and is a faith-based company, the name is based on Proverbs 31!


Whether you're looking for style, organization, the perfect giftable item - or a little bit of everything - Thirty-One has it! They are known for their purses and totes but have many, many more products as well.

I was so excited when this came in the mail!




I had so much fun with this review. The On a Stroll Bag is perfect for any Mom. It attaches to strollers and shopping carts easily and has a mesh pocket so you can easily see the contents. It also has a zipper pocket and two cup holders. 


Though I am an avid baby wearer, I still love and use my stroller all the time. It's easy as a mom to feel touched out, so when my little man will go in the stroller, I jump on the opportunity! Often times though, I still have to bring a wrap or carrier as he will eventually want to be carried and I like to be hands free.


The problem is, if I have my diaper bag in the bottom of the stroller, I'm automatically out of room. Here's where the On a Stroll bag comes in!


It clips onto the stroller and doubles my stroller storage space!


This is perfect for carrying coats, your purse, toys, cups and baby carriers while you are shopping. You could even put your wallet in the zipper pouch and avoid bringing in a purse.


On Monday mornings, my toddler has a little "pre" preschool class for an hour. Her classroom is right beside an indoor walking track where I walk with the baby and can watch her through a window on my way by.

The on the stroll bag is the perfect accessory for this outing. I used to get overwhelmed with everything I had to bring in, especially in winter with coats and indoor shoes. Then there's carrying out all of her wonderful crafts! However, the bag holds everything and I can safely carry it around with me while I walk the track. 




In the On a Stroll bag in the above photo, I have my Tula baby carrier (want one of your own? Enter to win here), my iPod, a book, our coats and my purse. 


I also find the On a Stroll particularly useful when I take the kids to see my husband Joel play baseball one or two nights a week. This is another outing when I need the diaper bag and lots more for the kids. 


I love that I can pack this bag ahead of time and leave it in my car, and keep my diaper bag stocked with just the essentials.



Here I have the bag packed and ready for baseball with a warm blanket, a child baseball bat and ball, the kids' hats, and a drink for each, with lots of room to spare! I love that I can clip this onto the back of the seat and then easily transfer it onto my stroller. 




This would actually also be great to keep in the car to hold toys, games and snacks for your little ones. My kids are both rear facing so it's not ideal for this purpose yet here, but it's still great for keeping things off of the van floor and from moving around!


I also love this for grocery shopping. There is NEVER enough room in the cart! My little guy can finally sit in the cart but there's still my purse and the baby carrier for when he inevitably is done in the cart and wants up... or needs to be separated from his sister!


This gives me so much more room for groceries. The only downfall is that it only works when you have one child in cart and it can be moved to the side, otherwise it hits their legs. 


For all things Thirty-One and to place an order, Christine Sebesta is your gal! 


A bit about Christine:


She started with Thirty One on Feb 10th when they first launched in Alberta. They have now launched across the country!


Her favourite product is the large utility tote - which happens to be on sale right now!

For the month of May, if you spend $40 and you can get a large utility tote for $12!



You can check out her website here. There are so many helpful and cute products and I pretty much want to order everything! Most of their products can be personalized too which is so fun.


You'll also want to join her Facebook group to hear about upcoming promotions and specials, and chat with fellow Thirty-One fans! They just had a recent sale where I placed an order and shipping was lightning fast.


Christine is generously giving away a $25 gift card to one lucky winner!
