Back to School with Carolina Pad! Review and Giveaway (8/23)

I am not in school anymore but still find myself sometimes purchasing what we consider school supplies, they just now have a fancier name - office supplies. :-) Keeping my files and my important stuff organized is important to me. I have this site to work on and I am also the administrator and designer for Beautiful For Thee, an inspirational Ladies' Blog, so I have lots of papers, schedules, and deadlines.

One of my favorite products for office/school supplies has been Carolina Pad. I have used them since I was a college student because I was able to carry fun but practical school supplies with me.

When I was given the opportunity to review Carolina Pad, I was excited. This is one office supply company I love for their fun, girly looks. I must admit I am not a plain boring girl - I love polka dots, hot pink, orange and I especially love them on my accessories. I was thrilled to find out that Carolina Pad now appeals to guys too with their new line called, Sasquatch.

Sasquatch is made completely from recycled materials. This is a great collection especially if you are trying to teach your young ones to recycle. Why not show them the cool things that can made when you recycle? It is also a fun, earthy look that even boys will not mind carrying to school. Be sure to visit Sasquatch's website for a fun, interactive site that even your kids will love exploring!

Another collection that Caroline Pad has is the Kendall Kollection. This line is special because it was inspired by two year old, Kendall Sierens, who was diagnosed with leukemia. This collection was born in 2008 and has been raising funds and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Kendall is now almost six-years old and in remission, but the battle continues for thousands of other children just like her.

The Kendall Kollection is one of my personal favorites. It is also a personal favorite with girls all over the nation.

You can purchase Carolina Pad online or at many major retailers such as Walmart, Kmart, and Target. I even seen them at CVS.
Since I love Carolina Pad so much and think they are great for school or your office, they offered to give one of my readers their choice of either the Kendall Kollection (featured above) or the Sasquatch Collection (featured below).

Graphic in Nature Personal Book is really quite lovely. All three colors were nice. But, purple is probably my favorite.
