So have you heard of Carolina Pad ? This is a company which offers a variety of organization/office product items that help keep us organized, why also being stylish at the same time! I remember the first time I saw Carolina Pad products on Desperate Housewives; it’s something I fell in love with as soon as I saw them! With their unique style and functionality, they are also easy on the pocket, so you don’t feel guilty adding these to your shopping list.

There wonderfully vibrant products are especially feminine and make me feel chic when using them.  What’s even better these products can be found at most Walmart stores. You may also visit Carolina Pad  online to their full line of products.  Here is a little blurb from their site:
"Carolina Pad (, the industry leader in fashion school, office and organizational products, is perfect for mom! Our wide variety of products provide the perfect combination of fashion, function and affordable! Plus, they are just plain cool! Our trendy, stylish products have appeared on the hottest television shows including “Glee!”, “Desperate Housewives,” the new “90210” and “Greek.”

Carolina pad is offering two packages on their website in honor of Mother's Day. Simply Chic and Eye Candy are the two that will make great gifts in a mom gift basket. The Simply Chic collection features a laptop sleeve, binder clips, push pins, paper clips, a note tote, and a flip top notebook. The Eye Candy collection features a 13-pocket expandable file, a 1-subject notebook, and personal clutch. The Simply Chic package is priced at $30 and the Eye Candy package is only $10!

I was really happy, I mean really, when Carolina Pad generously sent me both of these collections to try out and review. I was really in need of a laptop sleeve for my larger laptop.  The lovely bright yellow polka dot design makes me happy every time I look at it.  There is enough room for my 17” laptop, power cord and wireless mouse to fit and zip nicely. I also really love the binder clips, which are so pretty in black with a white scroll design, so girly.

As if the great people at Carolina Pad haven’t been generous enough, they have also offered to give one very lucky reader their own set of each of these collections.
