Maddie and I are up in Los Angeles at BlogHer right now. It is in the LA Live area, right by Staples Center. This area is really hopping at all times of the day, and Maddie and I love the energy here. It has been a very fun 24 hours so far, with very little sleep. I just keep thinking that life is for adventures and having fun. We can sleep later!
That made getting up even earlier than normal so much easier, that and knowing I was going to a special breakfast with Staples. It is no secret that I consider this time of year a holiday. I love office supplies and back to school shopping. I really do. I’ve never been able to say no to mechanical pencils and I’m slap happy about markers. Throw a new folder and paper clips at me and we will be friends forever. Maddie also inherited this love of mine. She gets just as giddy, so when our friends at Staples invited me to breakfast and to help share the breakfast event with all of you, I jumped at the opportunity!
After a strong cup of coffee I was ready to party. Armed with my laptop, camera and so much excitement to learn all about Staples’ back to school offerings, I was in my happy place.
I had the opportunity to preview some of the awesome back to school products that Staples is carrying and I wanted them all! These above are my favorites and I want the whole collection on my desk in my office!
Just when I thought it couldn’t get better, Staples surprised us all with an interactive, engaging and informative talk show on all things back-to-school.
It was hosted by Megan Telles of Celebrity Page TV, with some celebrity moms we all know, actress and model, Lori Loughlin and world-renowned athlete, TV personality, New York Times bestselling author and model, Gabrielle Reece.
We were all entertained and educated on everything there is to know about back-to-school. From what’s trending in school tools to ways to get organized, to how to save on supplies. I really felt like I was ready for back to school at the end of the event.
We also learned about some that all parents should definitely take advantage of. Staples has a 110% Lowest Price Guarantee on their back-to-school needs, which is really going to help streamline back to school shopping!
They also have a program called “Through Staples for Students” where Staples is helping teachers and students with $1M donation to DonorsChoose.org! You can learn more and watch the PSA here:
After the event, I brought Maddie some cool office supplies. She is definitely my daughter. She loves this time of year too!
