A little birdie told me that Ban.do is releasing a new collection some time soon and it's going to be one of the best ones yet. And by little birdie I mean just a handful of Instagram posts that I discovered after almost an hour of creeping through pretty much every Ban.do hashtag and photo mention. About a week ago Ban.do's PR company held a showcase in which they revealed the newest items for fashion and retail insiders to preview and "pre-shop" for their respective stores and websites. Lucky for you and I some of the PR Preview party goers posted pictures of their favorites and now, by searching the #BandoFun and @ShopBando tags, I have a little sneak peek at what's to come. First things first, the 2015-2016 Ban.do agendas will come in at least cotton candy pink. The blue of yesteryear may be no longer and my sneaking suspicions think that the gold and white pattern peeking out from underneath the pink little booklet may be another of the 2016 agendas in a more daring print. More new things coming for those who loved the pink and white striped pattern of Ban.do's last collection because it seems they are adding a pink and white notebook with "I Did My Best" plastered on the front and possibly 3 different sets of file folders all centering around the pink and white striped pattern and the cotton candy pink of the 2016 agenda. A teeny weeny piece of the new sticky note set is peeking out from the corner and if you're like me and bought the summer time set last year you're faced with the great dilemma of trying to finish all of your sticky notes super quickly or just save the last bits left so you can have twice the Ban.do sitting (sticking?) on to your desk. Of course it wouldn't be a truly new Ban.do collection if they didn't update the patterns and prints of their tumblers and thermal mugs. I am super excited about the sparkling and shining silver and periwinkle thermal mug that looks to be hitting stores very very soon. Lastly are the newly introduced "Party Time" coasters and pink and gold luggage tags which for any world traveler will be hit on the runway; the airplane runway that is. I'm tempted to buy a set for myself, but really, where would I go?
What's your favorite part of Ban.do's upcoming collection?? And are you as psyched as I am that there is going to be so much office supplies (rather than bags and wristlets...)!
