I was contacted by Allison Monk of Got Purses.com. She wanted me to try out some of her items designed for moms on the go. I thought that the items she had were a good fit for new moms, so I agreed to take a look. Allison sent me a great flyer with a listing of all of the new-mommy focused items available on her site. They range from diaper bags to thermal totes to diaper and wipe cases and even baby bibs! Each item can be ordered in a variety of fabrics and can have custom embroidery done on them – so you can pick the colors that reflect your personality and have a saying of your choice too!
Allison sent me her thermal tote to review. It is a cute, stylish tote with plenty of room to bring your lunch to work or carry some snacks for your toddler. I tested the tote by bringing my lunch and some drinks to my store with me. I packed up my food and drinks with one freezer pack at 7:30 AM. It sat in my car until 9 AM on a warm spring day last week. I then brought it into my store with me. At noon, I took out my lunch and one drink. Both were very cold. I left the 2nd drink in the tote with the freezer pack. At 4:30, I went to take the other drink out and it was still as cold as when I put it in there! So after 9 hours of sitting in this tote with just one freezer pack, my drink was still as cold as when I took it out of the refrigerator that AM! This is a great tote!!
