Friday Favorite- Novica Giveaway!

You may recall that my husband and I love to travel to Mexico. Our last travel to Mexico was spent at the wonderful Capella Ixtapa, which served their drinks in local artisan glass. We loved their colored rimmed glasses. Upon our return to the States, I found some similar glasses, but they weren't dishwasher safe. Do you know what that is? A real PAIN. I found other options, but I worried about the possibility that they had lead or would crack or chip....

Then, I found these. Cue the angels singing. Handmade from Mexico. Dishwasher safe. Can I get an "Amen"?! I found them at Novica, with about a million other items I wanted. In fact, the hardest part of my Novica order was deciding what to get. When Novica approached me to participate in a blogger marketing outreach, I jumped at the chance. I respect the bloggers they have worked with in the past and know that they sell quality products that support artisans around the world. Plus, I really wanted some machine washable glasses!

I found Hammocks, I know the girls would love taking a weekend nap in this one. Heck, I want to take a nap in that hammock!

I also perused Novica's Corporate gifts, including the glasses for entertaining and this great leather portfolio (which would also make an awesome gift for a college grad going on interviews!)


It's been a few weeks since I received the glasses. I waited to make sure I was happy with everything, and that you would be too. I am. I really like the mission of Novica and have been very pleased with my order. The ordering process is easy, my glasses arrived in a lovely package with background note. Most importantly, the glasses have held up beautifully. No chips, breaks, staining, etc. Exactly what I wanted.


Now the great news, Novica wants to share their goodies with one of you. I have a Fifty Dollar ($50) gift certificate to Novica for one of you. The contest is open to anyone in the world (as long as Novica ships to your neighborhood!). I'll leave comments open until June 10th at 10pm CT. So, how do you enter?


1) Pick your favorite item from Novica (you don't have to buy it if you win) and leave it in a comment. I also need you to leave an email address so I can notify you if you win!


2) If you are a follower of the blog, leave me another comment for an extra entry.

Good luck!
Novica (and their awesome Mexican glasses) are my Friday Favorites.
