Carolina Pad Review and Giveaway

Back to school shopping is right around the corner! Or is it here already? I’ve seen some sales in last weeks paper and thought, what summer is over already! I’d like to introduce Carolina Pad. I’ve seen reviews for them in the past and was so thrilled to finally get to try them out!

How can I describe Carolina Pad – hip, trendy, classic, eco-friendly, flirty and tough. Of course I love the eco-friendly products!

I was able to review several products from the Studio C collections. I received one item from each collection. WOW! I almost wish I was going back to school. The Studio C collection is available exclusively for the back-to-school season (July – early September) at Wal-Mart.

These collections include:
· Rock-on
· Graffiti
· Rising Sun
· Peace Out
· Free Spirit
· Eye Candy
· Mo’ Rockin’

I love these! The colors are vivid and bright, cool and so fun!The products themselves are very durable and I wouldn’t be afraid of them falling apart halfway through the school year, like some do. And the prices are reasonable too! The prices range from $2.50- $4.00.


Carolina Pad would like to offer one Mommy Has to Work reader a set like I received.(see picture above)

    I love their desk calendars. I have had one of similar design to the Hot Chocolate Desk Calendars for the last 2 years. So handy. I use it as a mousepas (huge mousepad) 🙂 and take notes on it.

  176. love all their products. as a school libraian, i am always in the need for supplies for my students and myself.
