Let’s Celebrate – Novica Review & GIVEAWAY!

Listen up folks!  I am so excited to share this with you!  I’m still flying high on my weight-loss success so what better time to have a review & GIVEAWAY!

Have you heard about Novica? They are a mission-driven website associated with National Geographic working with thousands of talented artisans around the world.  They have a wide array of  unique gifts, stylish jewelry, exclusive paintings, and one-of-a-kind, handcrafted furniture and home decor.  They also have an amazing selection of corporate gifts!

What attracted me even more to Novica besides their obvious selection of gorgeous items was the mission behind the company.  Their website states:

We want to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity. And, we want to provide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values that only the Internet infrastructure can allow.

At the deepest essence of our philosophy, we want to create a bridge between you and the many talented artisans across the globe.

We want you to know about who you’re buying from. We want you to feel that attachment to the product and to the hands that created it.

I was contacted by Novica to review their products and let me tell you it was so hard to pick!  They have so many lovely things!  It took me literally days to decide what I wanted!   Did I want a cute handbag like this one?
