Gemstone-Infused Water Giveaway: Enter To Win a Vision Crystal Gem-Water Bottle

We all need to be drinking more water these days. There are plenty of creative ways to make sure you’re getting your daily dose of H20. Some stay hydrated by adding lemons or artificial sweeteners to their bottles, but if you want to get even more luxe, might we suggest crystal-infused water, which has been touted by wellness fans for its calming effect. Gem-Water, a fleet of pristine water bottles, one-ups that trend by using gemstones, rare minerals that are used as jewelry. Gem-Water’s Vision Crystal Bottle by Vitajuwel is the brand’s winning product that men prefer. You can be a winner, too, because we’re giving readers a chance to win a new Vision Crystal Edition Gem-Water by Vitajuewel with a black sleeve, a $196 value, with no purchase necessary. Read further to learn more about this gorgeous bottle and how you can enter the contest and be the lucky winner.

Enter to win

There is a lot to say about the Vision Crystal Edition Gem-Water, so let’s start with the high points. Made of lead-free borosilicate glass, and fairly traded crystals, the bottles are manufactured in Germany and have become the #1 selling crystal water bottles in the world. And while crystal-infused water has seen increased interest in the past decades, gems have been used to spruce up water for over two thousand years, dating back to ancient Greece.

Upon first glance, Gem-Water’s Vision bottle is sleekly designed, and is made from borosilicate glass, with stainless steel caps, and features shungite and clear quartz. Shungite is only found in Russia, and it’s been said to help you feel grounded, and block EMF. Clear Quartz is known as the master healing stone and amplifies any stones it is paired with. So, having your Vision bottle by your computer while working is an added bonus.

The bottle not only looks good, but is good for the environment, helping you to never buy another plastic water bottle again! The Vision Crystal Edition Gem-Water is the perfect addition to your work-from-home setup when you need a boost of positive energy and hydration (two everyday essentials, in our book). The bottle and black carry sleeve total $196, but wouldn’t free be even better?

Gem-Water and The Manual are working together to give our readers a chance to win a free Vision Crystal Bottle by entering below. The contest ends November 2, so act now to be in the running for this gorgeous bottle.

It’s time to learn about bourbon — here’s your guide
Put down the IPA and meet the actual coolest drink in town — bourbon
Boubon in a glass

Hello class, and welcome to Bourbon 101. Don't worry; we're not like those other schools where you aren't allowed to drink during class. We're cool. Now, get your notebooks and a glass of whiskey ready because it's time to dive into the history of this America's spirit.

It would be hard to find something more American than bourbon, except for maybe a bald eagle draped in an American flag with a baseball and an apple pie clutched in its talons. In any case, the history of bourbon follows the highs and lows of our country as a whole with good times, great times, and really bad times. It was built with ingenuity in a time of great hardship and flourished despite the best efforts of outside forces.
What exactly is bourbon?
It's time to dive into a little American history here. Look, even if you weren't a fan of history class, this is a pretty fun subject. In case you're unaware, bourbon is highly regulated by the government in nearly every way (and that's a good thing). To be legally called "bourbon," there are several rules that need to be followed:

Chicken oysters are delicious (and you probably didn’t know they exist)
You'll be craving this chef's secret after one taste.
chicken oyster yakitori

What's the best part of perfect roast chicken? The tender breast? The juicy thigh? Maybe the crispy skin? Those are all delicious parts of a roasted chicken, but they are also the wrong answer. We're here to let you in on a little secret that not everyone knows about. The best parts of a roasted chicken are, without a doubt, the two little nuggets of happiness buried on the back of the bird known as the chicken oysters.

The chicken oysters have historically been a snack for the chef, a small payment for a job well done. Not many people are aware of their existence. But we're here to tell you that after you know where to look, you'll never forget about them ever again. Every chicken has two oysters, so that means they are a pretty hot commodity and you can decide whether to share the other one or not. We won't judge you if you don't.
