Review and Give-a-way: Carolinapad.com




Although we are only about halfway through the summer, Sarah's school has already started sending letters home regarding the school supplies that she will need for the 10th grade. She takes the shopping for and choosing of these supplies very seriously! They are a reflection of the importance of the upcoming school year.

Sarah, being the girly girl that she is, lusts after school supplies with cool designs that are functional as well as stylish. We both feel we have found that combination in Carolinapad Company products.

Their products have been seen on the CW's "90210" and ABC Family's "Greek" as well as in the arms of Miley Cyrus and Carrie Underwood.

Some of the items we received for review are:


Whimsical Flower Organizational Folder



My daughter's favorite feature of this product is the 8 full size pockets. They are coated to reduce ripping and tearing. She also loves the beautiful and contemporary design on the cover.






Hot Chocolate One Subject Notebook

We especially like the fact that this notebook comes with an elastic band. It is attached to the back cover to help keep all those handouts from getting wrinkled in the bottom of a book bag or knapsack. The design series is modern and contemporary as well.

What makes these products even better is the fact that the website is having a promotion from August 1st to August 22nd. When you use the code BTS2009 you will receive a 15% discount on your whole order.

All orders that total $30 or more after the discount receive free shipping.

The part of this post that you have been waiting for: THE GIVEAWAY!!!



They put together a great package that you can win right here on this blog!

You can win a collection of items that include all the necessary supplies for back-to-school; 1-subject notebooks, composition books, binders and more!

The winner can choose between the following two collections:



The Sasquatch Collection





The Kendall Collection












To Enter this giveaway:

(1) You MUST be a follower of my blog

AND

(2) You MUST visit Carolinapad.com and write a comment providing the EXACT NAME ( Item and design) of another item you would like to own.

For example your comment could say " I follow your blog and I would like to own the Whimsical Flower Organizational Folder. ( and no...you can't use this product!) LOL!

For an extra entry: Visit Carolinapad.com and tell me one store close to you where you can purchase their products.

This contest is open only to US citizens and items will be shipped from Carolinapad.com directly. The winner will be picked via Random.org and will have 48 hours to respond to the email that I will send. If no response is received, another winner will be chosen via the same method. The winner must comply with BOTH requirements stated above ( yes..I will check)

This contest will run from July 30th to August 13th, 2009 and will end at 11:59pm EST.

Update: I have a big favor to ask of you. Please take one moment and read my Sharing is Caring post and help me get to thirty comments! I would really appreciate it!
