{carolina pad} review + giveaway


It's July! and... for us ... that means that school starts in about a month (in August). And, ever since I was in kindergarten - one of my absolute favorite things was shopping for new school supplies. [I still love it!] I actually frequently buy Carolina Pad products - because they always have the best patterns/colors and the quality can't be beat.

I was thrilled when I was sent some of Carolina Pad's newest products -- an assortment from the collections below:
{these were designed to be exclusively sold @ Bed, Bath & Beyond}
LOVE them! Even the inside of all the products (like the inside covers/dividers) I received had a fun pattern.
