Novica Review & Giveaway

There is a nation of artists throughout the world. village of carvers in Bali;
a family of ceramists in Brazil who have handed down their craft
from generation to generation;
a farmer in the Andes who hand-weaves alpaca sweaters.

It is a community of artists who have been isolated
for centuries by distance, time, and geography --
isolated from the very community of collectors seeking
their unique, inspired, and undiscovered arts and crafts.

Now, finally, there is a bridge connecting our separate
communities into one worldwide nation --
this is The NOVICA Nation.

A nation of people inspired by the arts and
empowered by the Internet.

Novica offers everything from Sterling Silver Jewelry to Earrings to necklaces, unique gifts, and much more!

I received these to review:

Sterling silver half hoop earrings, 'Moon in the Forest'

Round as the full moon, silver hoops reveal the intricate elegance of leaves and tendrils. Wadarat Supasirisuk creates the motifs in low relief, bringing a new look to a classic style.

.925 rating silver.

Made by:
Wadarat Supasirisuk

"Sawadee kha! My name is Wadarat Supasirisuk and I was born on April 19, 1941 in the southern province of Nakorn Sri Thamarat. I am married and we have two children. After graduating from university, I had the opportunity to work in a company that manufactured jewelry. I chose that company because not only did the products interest me, but also because I could tell there was a growing demand for Thai jewelry.

I began to save my earnings and eventually opened my own workshop. I believe that opportunities are everywhere, that is, for those who can anticipate and make the risky decision to invest time and money.

I purchased some materials and started marketing the products myself. It was then that I traveled abroad, to Europe and Australia. When I was in Bangkok I became aware of the potential for silver jewelry. I looked at the northern region of Chiang Mai and decided to expand my scope of products.

Earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets – I design all these products myself, sometimes adapting patterns I see in magazines and catalogues, sometimes simply through asking clients and professionals about the current trends. However, most of the times my clients already have in mind what it is they want and just ask me to actually make it.

My products are nice and of good quality. I feel confident that, regardless where you are from, you will like them."

What I like about these earrings and Novica:
1. I love the whole concept of this company!
2. I really enjoyed reading and seeing a picture of the woman who created earrings.
3. My experience w/ this company was unique!
4. Came w/ a handwritten postcard from Thailand thanking me for my purchase written in their language and English. Pretty cool!
5. Even the jewelry box was cool in that it is made from Sea Paper, a handmade mulberry bark paper that has been made in Thailand for over 700 years.
6. Quick shipping.
7. These Sterling Silver earrings were very pretty and delicate.

What I didn't like:
1. Nothing!

ResVitale is a line of health and beauty supplements infused with Resveratrol, the age-defying antioxidant recommended by Dr. Oz. ResVitale is committed to providing premium supplements to consumers through certified organic sourcing, innovative research and unrivaled dedication to quality.

ResVitale is sold exclusively at GNC's fine retail locations both in the U.S. and international markets.

ResVitale sent me these 2 products to review and giveaway!

Keratin Enhance

A must have for beautiful hair, nails and skin, Keratin Enhance is our latest innovation in "beauty from within" supplementation. Combining Cynatine® HNS Keratin, the world’s first ‘soluble Keratin’, with Biotin and Resveratrol, this innovative formula provides a nourishing blend of science-backed ingredients for supporting and maintaining healthy and youthful hair, nails and skin. A clinical study demonstrated that hair loss from washing was reduced by 30% over a 90-day period, and hair strength was improved by 12% with a marked improvement in the shine and brightness of hair. Keratin Enhance is your new beauty secret to getting gorgeous hair, strong nails and firm skin.

ResVitále 125 mg

Just one capsule per day contains the Resveratrol equivalent of 400 glasses of red wine.

What I like about these products:
1. Do not hurt my stomach. My tummy can be sensitive at times. I already take a multivitamin & probiotics, so adding more can be a little much at times. These had no negative effects.
2. I have only been using these for 1 week so I can't truly attest to the full benefits yet.
3. I like that they have different levels available of the Resveratrol according to your age.
4. The Resveratrol slows the aging process? Bring it on! Can I get an Amen to that? ~wink~

Tasteful Bites

I started working outside the home and that's why you haven't seen as much of me lately. Funny thing cuz a few weeks ago I was working w/ a girl and she had only known me for 2 days. She turned to me and said, "One thing I've learned about you is that you love to eat!" Did she peg me or what? ~wink~ One of my fave things to eat is ChOcOlAtE! So when I was asked to review some tasties from Tasteful Bites you know what my response was!

Yvonne Janowski is the Cake Goddess behind Tasteful Bites. She makes Cake Truffles and Cake Pops in assorted flavors. This is the inspiration behind Tasteful Bites:
"I grew up in Houston Texas, went to college there studying art and art history. When I graduated I went to live in Paris, where I studied fashion design and got into fashion photography. I also learned to appreciate food and where it comes from.
I came back to the US to further my career in photography and worked as a freelance fashion photographer in NYC, where I met my husband. We moved to London for his career and well long story short- I was pregnant. I became a stay at home mom for the next 9 years or so. Really having the itch to do something fulfilling outside of the house , but I had to wait until the kids grew up a bit. While they were young it was really important to me that I be there to guide and nurture them. We moved back to the states after about 10 years in London and I decided to go to culinary school and pursue my passion for delicious, healthy food. After graduating, I started my own personal chef business, but found the hours it entailed were not the best for my family. I tried to figure out something I could do for my own fulfillment, yet still be there for my family's needs. I happened upon cake pops and truffles purely by accident. I was trying to find something fun for Andrew's birthday and saw the Bakerella site. Cake pops looked so fun and less messy than cupcakes, so I decided to try them. The only thing that really bothered me was that the recipes called for boxed cake mix and canned frosting. Just the thought of all these processed sugars and chemicals really turned my stomach, so I decided to make my own cake from scratch and my own Italian buttercream, then follow her directions for assembly. They turned out so delicious and everyone was telling me I should make these for grownups to as they were not a sweet, so I decided to give it a try. I went through alot of trial and error finding the right suppliers, since I try and source everything local and organic. The presence of red food coloring for the red velvet cake really bothered me, so I had to develop a natural way to get the color, but not use the food coloring. I really want to deliver a product that not only looks elegant, but tastes incredible and have people know that they are eating only the most pure and natural ingredients as god intended. That is why each cake pop is made by hand with no added chemicals. "Respect the food"

Here are the flavors I received to try:

Death by chocolate - if you are going to go this is the way to do it! Chocolate cake blended with chocolate ganache, enrobed in dark chocolate and garnished with milk chocolate vermicelli.

Salty dawg - perfect balance of sweet and salty. Vanilla cake blended with caramel buttercream, enrobed in milk chocolate and garnished with sea salt.

Midnight soiree - sophisticated and elegant. Chocolate cake blended with chocolate orange ganache, enrobed in dark chocolate and garnished with candied orange peel and gold sugar.

24 Carrot - chunks of real carrots and raisins. Carrot cake blended with cream cheese frosting, enrobed in white chocolate and garnished with gold and orange sugar.

What I like about these cake pops:

1. I was impressed that they all arrived in great shape! Not crushed or melted in any way!!

2. Packing is cute and simple tied w/ a pretty ribbon around each pop and labeled w/ a sticker to tell you the flavor.

3. Gorgeous and fun! I have always loved the look of the cake pops!!

4. Not too sweet. Actually, the Salty Dawg was one of my faves. A cool combo of salty and chocolate.

I LOVE that Yvonne strives to use only pure and natural ingredients. So rare, especially in sweets!

What I didnt' like:

1. I like things super sweet & rich. These are not too sweet, so if that's your preference, then these babies are sure to satisfy!

Want It? Click here to visit Tasteful Bites. Yvonne is generously offering this "sweet deal" to Gift Closet readers: With every dozen you buy- she will include 3 extra in assorted flavors for you to try! Enjoy!
