Today I am a ReviewGoat AND a #Giveaway Goat: NOVICA Review and $75 GC Giveaway

The publicist says I have been lazy all winter.
She says it's about time I did some work around the Farm.
Harumph!
So Wordless Wednesday is being postponed this week so I can work.
The things a Famous SpokesGoat has to do.....




...hey, this might not be so bad after all!
Is that APPLES?!
OK! This goat is ready to review!


But first I want to tell you all about the wonderful company, NOVICA.
NOVICA works with National Geographic - a very tasty magazine if I do maaa so maaaself - to bring you lots really great things to buy! They find artisans all around the world and they put all of the great and unique gifts on ONE WEBSITE to make it easy for you to shop. You can find everything you might want from sterling silver jewelry to home decor and clothing. I did not find grain and apples but I did find a few sections that I found maaaavelous -  like earrings and necklaces. I look good in pearls if you will recall. I think I would look really great in this necklace. It is made by an artisan in Thailand.




Do you think Luke the goat would want to dance the rhumba if he saw me wearing it?
Ah-hem.
The publicist says I need to stay on topic.


Of course the publicist got to spend MY gift card and she did not get me any pearls. Stupid publicist! But she did get a delicious gorgeous hand woven rush basket from Peru. It's called "Nature's Colors." I have never been to Peru but I have heard there are lots of mountains there. Goats like mountains!




The publicist LOVES her basket. When it arrived it was wrapped up just like a present! With a bow and a tiny little doll on the bow as a decoration. She is going to make a Christmas ornament out of the doll. She felt very special opening her basket - she told me so. Now me, I would have eaten the bow 'cause it looked so tasty. This is why the publicist does not let me near the mail.




She brought it out for me to review along with her other choice, ceramic condiment bowls from Bali. These are called "Lithe Gecko." Now we are maaaaing!
THIS is how a Famous SpokesGoat should get her apples served to her.




The condiment bowls held grain and minerals for dipping!




Nom, nom, nom!




I will tell you that I am all in favor of this basket and these bowls as long as they are used for feeding me.




I loves me some apples dipped in minerals.






The publicist said not to get used to it.
Harumph!
She said that she loves her basket. She said it's very well made and she will use it in HER kitchen. She said the condiment bowls are to hold her two different kinds of salt. She said that I was only going to get this kind of treatment today.


WHAT THE HAY?!




Well! At least I get to make one of my readers very happy!
It's true!
One of you will get to win a $75.00 gift card to NOVICA so you can go shopping for whatever you like.

She knows me pretty well by now and knows what I am thinking. And what I am thinking is that I should get more than some apples for all of this work. Harumph! The publicist is very happy with her product for her work.

  2. Mmmm, mineral dipped apples!

    Since I am not 18, my Mommeh went to that site. They have lots of beautiful things! We found the "Gift Animals" and love the Wood Display Doll "Mystery Cat" and "Cat Who Loves Nature"!

  3. I think that is not fair, Pricilla, that the publicist kept the basket and bowls to herself.

    At least you got the apples.

  4. I love all the jewellery specially the dangle ear rings. The midnight blue lapis lazuli and pearl ear rings are calling to me.

  10. An excellent review and I am glad you got apples, grain and minerals for your work.

    I would get the Wood jewelry box, 'Gecko Guardian' if I won the gift certificate. I wonder if it would hold much grain...

  11. You did a great job! The grain and mineral bowls were a nice touch. I'm afraid you may be just a tad spoiled.

  12. Pricilla, you are still the best spokesgoat ever! The publicist's basket is lovely and your apples looked yummy!

    If we won we'd get the Onyx Dangle earrings "Mysterious Cat"

  76. I adore Novica - my hands down most favorite place to shop in the whole wide world! Trying to decide what I might choose is a very difficult decision to(there are 330 items on my Novica Wish List!)

    Armed with a VERY generous $75 GC I could easily afford to purchase two, even three of my favorites...

    ...Or I could really splurge and treat myself to one gorgeous item I simply adore like the Pearl & Amethyst Flower Headband 'Lavender Romance' OR the variation, Pearl & Rose Quartz Flower Headband 'Spring Garland' - both by the amazingly talented Nareerat of Thailand.
