Thirty One Organizing Utility Tote and Fundraiser



Have you ever used Thirty One products?  If not, you're missing out, especially if you're as anal as I am about keeping my stuff organized while out and about (though oddly not my purse!)  Admittedly, I don't have many Thirty One items, but lately they've been my go-to gift for the moms, and they've been loving them!

I was recently given the opportunity to review a Thirty One product, and host an online party fundraiser.  I'm so glad I opted to that the opportunity, because I've been debating if I wanted an organizing utility tote, and that's what Amy sent me to try out and review.  As soon as I opened it up I knew exactly what I wanted to use it for - summer pool events!  Let's face it, swimming requires A LOT of stuff, and it's often stuff that's hard to keep organized.  Until the pretty lady below ended up in my hands that is!

With Father's Day last weekend, and the annual pool "party" that coincides with Father's Day, I was so anxious to try this out.  There are 7 total pockets on the outside - perfect for 2 types of sunscreen, swim diapers. toddler flip flops, sippy cups and travel cups for adult beverages.  Plus, plenty of room on the inside to transport pool toys!  And, a bonus that I didn't really think of while debating if I wanted one previously - it can get wet, which is prime for something that I plan to take to a pool!

Now - the fun part!  If you love Thirty One products, or want to try some out, check out my online fundraiser - here.  Fundraiser you say?!  Yep - proceeds from sales will be donated to Feeding America.  Feeding America is a fantastic organization that I am proud to be able to support whenever I can, and I love that my day job is so heavily involved in supporting the organization as well.

Hunger in America exists for over 50 million people.  One in 6 people in the US is food insecure (more than 1 in 5 children), meaning they do not know where their next meal is coming from.  Food insecurity exists in every county in the U.S. and Feeding America's mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.

Help me and Feeding America fight to end hunger, and organize your life a bit while doing so!

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz. White Chocolate, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla Directions: Beat softened cream cheese and vanilla with mixer until well blended and light (a few minutes). Beat in pudding mix until fully incorporated. Stir in melted white chocolate. Fold in thawed Cool Whip Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
