Giveaway& Review: Carolina Pad Eye Candy Office Products (CLOSED)

I don't know about you but I'm one of those people who loves to buy office stuff. Notebooks especially. There's nothing like a blank notebook. Maybe it's because I'm a writer but there's something about a brand new notebook that makes me so happy! It's kind of like that first day of school feeling - the hope of a new beginning.

So I was absolutely thrilled when Carolina Pad offered to send me one of their Simply Chic Ideal Portfolios! This is my kind of notebook: it's cute, pink, faux croc and super functional! Inside there's a notepad and a place to stow a pen and slot in various sizes where you can stash things like post its or business cards. Or of course, coupons! The cover latches easily with a magnetic clasp and the case is sturdy enough that you can just throw it in your purse or bag and run out the door!

They also sent me of their adorable Organizational Folders in lime green! It has 8 pockets and is great for filing or just keeping things like recipes, design ideas or notes. Right now I'm using it to help sort out paperwork and mail that needs to be filed. Why not jazz up an otherwise boring task, right? And the cover of the folder is super durable plastic so it won't rip!

Carolina Pad has some wonderful products and the best part is that they are functional AND fun. No stale plain cover notebooks here! I'm a big fan of anything black, white and damask and they have some absolutely gorgeous desk accessories in their simply chic line. Check out this super cute mouse pad!. They also have some gorgeous botanical style Photo boxes that would be perfect for storage in my dressing room (a work in progress). Carolina Pad strives to make bring their customers extraordinary fashion and innovation to everyday products.

Want to win some of this stuff for yourself?! Carolina Pad has generously offered to give one lucky Frugal and Fabulous reader an entire line of Eye Candy Office Products! (A $150 value!)
