Novica Review and Giveaway


Have you ever shopped at Novica before? It's a fabulous website with an incredible mission. From their mission statement:

"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."

Novica also has some incredible accessories available for your shopping pleasure. I especially love the women's scarves they have available - fashionable and cozy, too. You'll also find a great selection to choose from for the men in your life, as well. There is also a gift finder option for that perfect surprise for someone special!


You can also help these artists by participating in Novica's microfinance program.


I had an opportunity to purchase something from Novica to review, and I decided on this set of three beautiful stacking rings.


They're so pretty. Simple. Elegant, too. I really like them. They look nice worn individually, and stacked together. My fingers are a little bit chubby for all three, but two on one hand and one on the other look really pretty. I like that they can have a wedding band look to them, too, as I don't always wear mine and like to have something on my finger to fiddle with.

I also decided to add to the rest of the money so I could buy myself something else with the rings. I opted for this cute pendant.


It's kind of funky, but I like funky, so it works for me. The only thing is that the cord is a bit short so it is a bit "choker-like" for my taste, so I may get myself a new rope to wear it on. But it has some cute colors and from the website description I read this:

"The energy of the day known as
Imox allows us to keep calm and collected when facing chaos and the unexpected, understanding that it is all part of life," says Iliana Hernandez alluding to the beliefs that underlie the Maya calendar. "

Now I don't know about you - but I sure could use a little calm and collected energy these days.


And today I have a giveaway for you - my lovely readers. I have a $50 Novica giftcard available (expoires 1/31/12) for you to either buy yourself something special or buy something special for someone special in your life!


All you have to do is post here with a comment letting me know you want to win. That's it. That's all. Something simple and an easy entry.

If you'd like to have a second chance at throwing your name into the hat, please tweet about my giveaway and post the URL to your tweet here in the comments. That's simple enough, right?

This giveaway will run through the weekend and I'll pick a winner via Random.org on Sunday. The giftcard code is good through January 31st so you'll have to get to shopping quickly, but trust me, you'll find something you like right away. The problem will be picking which item to get! Good luck.

** I was provided with a gift card code from Novica to make my purchase on their website. I added some of my own money so I could buy two items. The review of the products here consists completely of my own opinion of their website and the products I ordered. I was not further compensated for running the giveaway. **
