Review : Carolina Pad

A little about Carolina Pad:
Carolina Pad is the first company to add fashion to school and office products. With trendy design and great function, Carolina Pad notebooks, binders, and other school and office products stand out from the crowd. Their team of talented designers, led by Signature Designer (and Carolina Pad’s first designer) Jacqueline Savage McFee, stays on top of upcoming fashion trends and makes sure each product detail is perfect.

I received the Hot Chocolate collection from Carolina Pad. I won it from
~Kristinia/Loving Heart Mommy~.

Here's a list of the items I received:
Hot Chocolate Binder
Hot Chocolate Notebooks
Hot Chocolate File Folders
Hot Chocolate Tab Dividers
Hot Chocolate Student Planner
Hot Chocolate Sticky Notes & Flags
Hot Chocolate Accordion Folder (Small)
Hot Chocolate Accordion Folder (Large)

The Hot Chocolate Notebooks have durable covers, set with an elastic closure. The bigger notebook has 80 pages and has a snag-resistant coil. The pages are lined, and there are holes on each page. So, if you want to tear down a page and put it in the binder, you won't have to punch holes by yourself. It makes things more convenient for the user. The only thing that I don't like is that the ring is too small, so it is not easy to turn the pages without them being stuck. The smaller notebook consist of 120 pages and has 2 tabs. The coil is slightly bigger, so it is easier to turn the pages.

This beautiful Hot Chocolate Student Planner will be very useful to anyone who likes to organize things perfectly. There are 2 tabs and some address pages at the end of the book. The book is dated from June 2009 - December 2010, and has monthly calenders. The formatting is similar to a mini-diary, so you can jot down your 'things to do' easily on the pages indicating the days when they should be done.

This is the cover design of the Hot Chocolate Binders. Isn't it pretty? I just love it!

On the inside, there's a different design. It is layered with durable vinyl, and so it's waterproof.

The Hot Chocolate Accordion Folder has 12 tabs and 13 pockets, specially designed for you to classify your documents with ease! It has an elastic closure which looks very fashionable.

Overall, this stylish collection is a great helper for
both students and adults to be more organized. The fashionable, chic designs will also give others a glimpse of your personality. I love the Hot Chocolate Collection and I'm thankful to have the chance to try it myself!

A great THANK YOU! to April B. Whitlock and Martha Broome for sending the prize pack to me!

These are so cute! I'm pretty sure I've seen them in stores before. In fact, I think that's the same planner I ended up buying.
