Enter Our Dove & ban.do Back-To-School Giveaway!


It’s back-to-school season, which means all those days of sleeping in late, lounging by the pool, and just vegging out on the couch are officially over (but hey, there’s always the weekend!). We all know a good education is priceless, but sometimes, getting back into the swing of things after a two- or three-month break can seem a bit daunting. To help get the kids (or yourself!) pumped about the new school year, there’s nothing like a cool backpack and some fun notebooks in which to jot down notes from class and lecture sessions.

Since Dove is committed to empowering girls and women, it’s only fitting that they would reach out to fun-loving ¬†accessories brand ban.do in order to put together a fantastic giveaway designed to help give gals a few essentials to ease into the fall semester with style, feeling confident and even excited about their new class schedules (and yes, their stylish new gear). Now, we’ve teamed up with Dove to offer one of you lovely readers the opportunity to win this epic back-to-school sweeps! What’s the grand prize? Check out all the goodies in the prize package.

SWEEPSTAKES PRIZE PACKAGE (valued at over $100!)

  • ban.do “Get It Together” Backpack (retails for $65 at bando.com)


This structured, baby pink, floral print backpack is designed to stand up straight, rather than slouch lazily, for a sleeker look. Measuring 18″ in height, 13″ in length, and 5.5″ in width, the printed cotton canvas piece features a padded sleeve for your laptop or iPad, deep side pouch pockets for easy access to your water bottle or your cell, and a slim, zippered front pocket.

  • ban.do “Good Ideas” Notebook Set (retails for $14 at bando.com)


What would a back-to-school giveaway be without some notebooks, right? This pair of ruled notebooks includes a larger number in the same pink floral “Lady of Leisure” print as that of the backpack, as well as a smaller book in a jade green color with abstract pink and lilac swirls. Both notebooks feature a fun centerfold that says “Are you having fun?”

  • ban.do “Lady of Leisure” Agenda (retails for $20 at bando.com)


Trying to keep track of assignment due dates, study group sessions, doctor’s appointments, friends’ birthdays, and social events can be an uphill battle if you’re not armed with the proper tools to stay organized and on schedule. This beautiful planner again features the “Lady of Leisure” print seen on the backpack, and it allows you to keep track of all upcoming events and deadlines that are happening from August 2016 through December 2017. The planner features color-coded month tabs, each starting with a monthly calendar view and then leading to pages with roomy day-by-day views that allow to to jot down in detail what you have planned for any given date. Even better, the planner includes tons of compliment pages to put some pep in your step, with some featuring messages like, “You’re a Champ!” There’s also two pages of fun stickers with motifs ranging from pizza slices to rainbows, lipstick tubes, and popcorn bags.

  • 2 Dove Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant Deodorants (retail for $4.99 each at drugstores)dove-advanced-care-soothing-chamomile-and-beauty-finish-deodorants

You can have all the snazziest accessories in the world, but you won’t feel secure in class without some serious underarm protection. Fortunately, Dove has you covered with its Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant Deodorant, which provides 48-hour wetness and odor protection. Moreover, each of these deodorants is formulated with Dove’s NutriumMoisture complex, which incorporates humectants that help the skin retain moisture so that the delicate skin under your arms stays soft and smooth, with sunflower seed oil figuring among the key ingredients. The Beauty Finish deodorant features a fruity-floral aroma, with juicy and bright pineapple and pear notes mingling with a floral bouquet of freesia, jasmine and water lily. The Soothing Chamomile deodorant, meanwhile, features the calming scent of chamomile, along with a powdery and feminine orange blossom note and a very delicate lily of the valley nuance.
