Novica: National Geographic $75 Gift Certificate!


I'm born and raised in Canada, but I have to say I've always had a love for other parts of the world. I love living in Canada and being Canadian, and have a love for all types of art. I guess you can say I'm a bit of a dreamer, and wish to someday travel the world to enjoy a wider range of art. I recently came across an awesome website that showcases artists from around the world, where you can purchase their art: Novica. Novica is in association with National Geographic, and everyone has heard of them!


Novica features artists from around the world: Andes, Bali and Java, Brazil, Central America, India, Mexico, Thailand, and West Africa. By purchasing from Novica, you're helping those smaller companies and artists that may not have that much money. Visit Novica Live and find out how you can become a consultant, or even host your own Novica party!

Novica sells all kinds of items that would make for perfect gifts... women's robes, sarongs, floral bracelets, sterling silver filigree earrings, and much more! I personally have a love for anything South Asian. I spent hours on the India section, and fell in love with so many items. I love the handmade jewelry, as well as the clothing.

I was given a gift certificate so I could select my own item for review, and I decided on the Beaded silk tunic, 'Maharani'. Lavish embroidery embellishes shimmering turquoise silk. Enhanced by beadwork and sequins, applied by hand, the motifs distinguish a regal blouse by Tanya Berry. Decorative loops and buttons border the neckline. With its mandarin collar and 3/4 length sleeves, this beautiful tunic slips over the head. The top is gorgeous and the pictures don't do this work justice. I loved how it was packaged and included a postcard from the artist with a thank you note. You can tell it's top quality, and they even offer an option if it's a gift.







I am so incredibly impressed with my new top, that I would buy from Novica again! In fact I actually already purchased one item as a Christmas gift already. Stay tuned for that product review closer to the holiday season! Are you looking to find a beautiful item for a gift? Well now is the perfect time to start your holiday shopping... click here!



Thanks to Novica one lucky reader will get a chance to win a $75 gift certificate for their website! You must be living in the US/CA to qualify.





I received an item for review, for my honest opinion. I was not compensated for this post. All opinions are my own, and others may vary.
