  182. I love the coffee cup, since I am addicted to coffee of course. πŸ™‚
    Thank you,
    Alison Rodriguez

  185. that ‘blah blah’ coffee mug is amazing! i have been eyeing all of these items myself, so excited!

  186. The “But First Coffee” mug is perfect for me! I cannot speak to anyone before I have my coffee.

  187. the “i am very busy” pencil case is super cute – i would love to use it as a small makeup case.

  188. Okay! I love this website and I would love to win these adorable items? my fav thing would probably be the “but first coffee” mug

  189. I really like the pen set!! Great for drawing and writing, super adorable.
    Back to work for me tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  190. My favorite of their newer items is the planner in “I am very busy” I use it all the time and am obsessed. I also love that ooh la la keychain and the thermal mug in “But first coffee”!!

  191. I’ve been jamming with my giant gem speaker for months! It’s so fun. My favorite things on the website now are the “I am very busy” pencil pouch, iphone case, and iPad sleeve.

  192. But first coffee mug, its awesome, I need to get it. I homeschooled 3 kids and coffee must be first before I can function.

  193. LOVE the blahblahblah Hot Stuff Thermal Mug… functional AND stylish. PLUS… I find they are GREAT for hot or cold drinks ;D

  194. Yes-the but first coffee mug is my absolute favorite. It is the only way for me to be a ‘morning person’ and not a ‘mourning person’

  195. I love them all!!! But my favorite is probably the “ooh la la” keychain!!! So fun! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  196. my favorite item from Ban.do’s new collection is their Get it Together Stay focused pencil pouch. my collection of gellyroll pens, metallic sharpies, sparkly pencils, mini pompoms, and paper scraps need it. fingers crossed!!

  197. I have been eyeing the gem speaker since they were back ordered before they were even released! haha. Bando everything is so great but they really stepped their game up with the new collection.

  198. It pains me to even talk about the I am Very Busy agenda. It sold out so fast!
    I love the pencil case too though. πŸ™‚

  199. I love the sticky notes from their new collection! I know as soon as I use them around the office, they’re gonna be a hit! πŸ™‚

  200. Hot stuff thermal mug! I love what you do and all of your creativity. Keep on doing! πŸ™‚

  201. I love the I am very busy. zip pouch because I recently quit my corporate job and the only thing I’m currently busy with is having fun!

  202. In love with the “Get It Together” pouch. Every time I feel too busy, I have to remind myself to keep it together.

  203. I suppose I would have to pick the Sip Sip Tumbler with Straw in Dottie! Adorable, and the colors are so bright and poppy!

  204. I love the “But First Coffee” ceramic tumbler because in order to have a great day you must first WAKE UP! So what busy trend-setter wouldn’t love this adorable item while she’s on the go!

  205. I would love a laptop case. I got a computer for graduation and it would be nice to have a safe way to get it to work & back!

  206. Do you ever when someone asks how you’re doing, just want to hold something up? Well the “blah blah blah” iPhone 5s case is the perfect answer for me!!! ?

  207. Tough choice but the Sweet Talk Assorted Pens are my favorite. As a designer having a go to set of pens is a must, plus it doesn’t hurt that they are adorable!

  208. I absolutely love all their new arrival items but my favorite has got to be the hot stuff thermal mugs, especially in blah blah and but first, coffee! Super cute and how true (as a new mom!)

  209. My favorite item from their new collection has to be the “blah blah blah” mug! Can’t wait for this giveaway!!!

  210. I love the; but first, coffee, thermal mug. I have my days when I try to say no to coffee in the morning, like a fool, and almost die. Bwahahaha.

  211. My favorite is the “I am very busy” print (ok, and phone case!). That almost made me laugh out loud! My friends and I always talk about how “busy” everyone thinks they are anymore. Hilarious πŸ™‚

  212. My favorite item from ban.do new collection, has to be the “blah blah blah” mug. So adorable! Thanks for this opportunity Joy!

  213. Basically all of the desk accessories! They are typographically and graphically on point! Love the “stay focused” pieces!!

  214. All of the new items are amazing, but I love the Mega Babe draft book the most! Thanks for introducing me to this awesome line!

  215. This a tough one since I love everything on ban.do site. I am just going to do a tie between “But coffee first” mug since my days start at three in the morning. And then there is the gem speaker. I cannot imagine a more perfect way to make my desk more fun and add a pop of color.

  216. Definitely would have to go with the Giant Gem Speaker. Not only would it be cute sitting on a desk by itself, but it’s also functional!

  217. I love love love all of the I Am Very Busy pretties!! Might need to purchase the cell phone case! What great items! πŸ™‚

  218. Hi Joy!

  219. The ‘” I am very busy'” print would be the perfect addition to my wall but anything from this collection would brighten my day!

  220. I would say… The giant gem speaker since I’m always listening to my kpop *tee-hee* and it looks so magicaaaaal*

  221. LOVE the agendas (crossing my fingers that I’ll find one at my Paper Source). Also love the blah blah blah mug πŸ™‚

  222. Dur, didn’t read the part about the new collection! In that case, I love the I Am Very Busy print!
