I have reviewed Carolina Pad products in the past so I have come to expect high quality products from them. This collection did not disappoint. Each binder, tab, notebook, and folder is made to resist wear and tear. The collection keeps the needs of the consumer in mind, using things like inner envelopes and tabs for easy organization. I have been using the binder and tabs to help me organize my blog information, and it has shown no wear or tear and it has been with me everywhere for weeks.
There were inspirational sayings all over this collection. They were subtly yet strategically placed so that girls have an opportunity to read the quotes during their daily activities and hopefully take time to pause and reflect on the hopeful statements.
Several of the products had an option for personalization. I gave this journal to Bella and she loved the pastel colors. She is too young to realize the significance of the sayings, but she really enjoyed the look of it. She likes anything that is super-girly.
