OMG! So Txt Me! - Carolina Pad Review and Giveaway

WINNER UPDATE: According to Random.org, our lucky winner is TaylorBagels! Congratulations! And thank you to all who entered. Stay tune for more!

I can't believe that next week is the last day of school for the Summer! It's a bittersweet time for those who goes to school since it means parting with the classmates you've become BFF with and the teacher you've  come to love! So what do you do to keep up with friends over the long break? Well, if your kids are a texter like me, I bet that their cellphones will be on fire all summer long! Bless your heart! Great thing my daughter is too young to get into this hype - for now.
All these famous texting hype is what inspired Carolina Pad's New Summer line, the Chat Collection! Just look at the picture! And pictured is the appropriately called the "Chat Bundle" which retail for $10 and consists of 1 binder, 1 subject notebook and three 2-pocket file folder. Good deal or what?


What I like about the Collection:
  • Design - I just love the over-all graphic design of this collection which features the iconic text lingos I'm quite familiar with. I think that using it was just a brilliant idea!
  •  Quality - Material used are definitely of high-quality and also recyclable. Now that's eco-friendly!
What I don't like:
Nothing really sets the collection apart from the regular office product already in the market as being unique, except it's design which to me is a winner!

The Verdict:
Definitely makes for a great parting gift for your favorite teacher, your BFF or even for your personal use. A stylish way to welcome Summer and the next school year ahead or a stylish and trendy collection for your home office if you don't mind spending a little more: Binder retails for $5.99, Notebook $3.99, Folder $0.99. Or go for the Chat Bundle to save some bucks!

And for you?! Well, Carolina Pad is generously giving away one chat bundle to one lucky reader of Zen MamaVentures! How cool is that?!
