I first heard of Carolina Pad when I purchased a binder by them in the 'Hot Chocolate' collection at Walmart several years ago. I fell in 'love' with it! Seriously. I thought it was the most fashionable binder ever. So, now when Carolina Pad contacted me recently and asked me if I'd be interested in doing this giveaway, I couldn't answer quick enough! :) When my items from the Executive Series came in the mail, I just thought they were stylish as well as functional! I received the Ideal Padfolio, Business Card Binder, Business Card Case and the Flip Note Pad w/Pen. As you can see in my picture above, everything is gorgeous and I'm enjoying using everything that I received. I absolutely recommend shopping at Carolina Pad for your personal as well as business needs.

Blog Against Bullying

I can remember when I was in 5th grade when some bullying was happening to me by what these days we would call the 'mean girls'. They were the popular ones and I just me, not part of that group. I remember wanting to be 'in' with them but I never was. There was one of the popular girls, my height (petite) who was pretty but she was also a bully. I wanted to be her friend but she definitely didn't treat me nice. I felt like I could be harmed if I said something wrong, said nothing at all or told on them for talking when I was in charge of the class. I remember eventually telling my parents and teacher about what was going on and how I was being treated.

Children need to tell their parents and teachers what's going on in their lives. They don't need to keep this inside of them. They need an outlet to speak to people they can trust. There's a world out there of bullying going on and it's resulting in children taking their own lives. Maybe we can save the life of at least one child that's hurting and make a huge difference!
