Posted by Ellie Pongratz at 2:02 PM 0 comments
Not to long ago I did a giveaway for CSN Stores.  I have done several reviews and giveaways for CSN.  My last giveaway was for a Waffle Iron.  The reason I keep working with CSN is because I believe in their products. They have over 200 online stores where you can purchase over a million products like bathroom vanities.  Look at this beautiful vanity set.

Novica Review/Giveaway

Posted by Ellie Pongratz at 1:26 AM 306 comments
I am always looking for unique items for my blog to review and giveaway, so when Peter from Novica contacted me I was very excited.  After I perused the websites I realized it was a perfect fit for my blog.

From the website:
Origin of the Name NOVICA:
The NOVICA global team comes from different cultures, countries and language sets. We knew we needed a name with no language barriers. A name with no cultural barriers. A new name that could be incorporated into the local language of all of our international offices. We couldn't have a name like Globeshop, which can't be pronounced in Spanish and many other languages. We couldn't have any "sh" sounds. We couldn't have "l"s, or "r"s, or "z"s. We needed a name that each of our artists could claim as their own, just as each of our clients would know it was theirs. We also needed a name that meant "new" - because we were creating a new system for the world. So, looking at the Latin root of "novus" as a base, the name NOVICA was born.
