Novica Review and Giveaway!!




When I was given the opportunity to review an item from Novica, was thrilled. Honestly, I love this site.

 If you haven't heard of Novica or visited the site, you MUST. Novica, in association with National Geographic gives artists and artisans around the world a platform to express their artistic talents, and creativity.

It is a huge marketplace where you can find unique and handmade items from all over the world. They have apparel, corporate gifts, furniture, housewares, jewelry gifts, furniture and tons of home decor items!

Novica also has a wonderful new site: Novica Curation. This site allows shoppers to pin items that catch their eye and share it with others! I hope you enjoy the site and hope we can connect soon! I checked it out and it was great.

It is great to see what others enjoy. It is also great to get new ideas on home decor or new accessories. I loved the boards created by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love. The boards were inspiring, fun and had some great items that I would love to have.

After looking for that special item from Novica, I finally decided on a set of 6 short cobalt groove tumblers from Javier and Efren. I am a huge fan of hand blown glass. I had bought some beautiful large hand blown glass glasses last year but the store did not have the tumblers. I have been looking for them ever since.

My new tumblers are so beautiful. I love the weight of the hand blown glass and they are perfect for juice or for a drink at night. They also match my other hand blown glasses. I love this Mexican style of glass and am very happy with my purchase.

I can't say enough about Novica. The items are so unique. You can find almost everything you can ever need on the site. Novica is a great place to find gifts for anyone on your list. The best part is you are also helping artists all over the world find a place to sell their items.

I have a $50 Novica gift code for one lucky reader, thanks to the people over at Novica. For a chance to win, just enter on the Rafflecopter widget below!
