$50 credit for KEZI handmade jewelry [giveaway]

I don't consider myself a jewelry expert but I know unique jewelry when I see it. If you've browsed Etsy or been to a craft fair then you know how creative people can be with their craft.

I'd like to showcase a friend's work. Olivia of KEZI makes handmade jewelry using wire and precious gems.

Inspired by nature, Olivia's designs embrace natural beauty and power. The use of wire allows each jewelry piece to have a distinct aesthetic, evoking a different feel based on where the wire came from and its source of inspiration.

The Simple Onyx Continuum necklace, pictured above, is sterling silver circles laced with black onyx, adding subtle boldness to a striking necklace. KEZI's onyx jewelry encourages mental strength and focus.

Every artist’s medium becomes a link to their soul, and their art a necessary expression of what is found. For Olivia, she speaks through lines as she searches for inner beauty and power. Each piece of jewelry becomes a token from her soul, a shrine for what’s within.

Speaking of beauty and power, KEZI's turquoise jewelry is just that.

New book and new races! Free Spartan Race entry & PayPal cash [giveaway]

I previously held a Spartan Race giveaway back in December and we're back with another one! Warm weather is just around the corner, so getting wet and muddy will be a bit more tolerable.

Spartan Race has races all over the U.S, and it doesn't matter if you're in a rural area or an urban area. They make it happen. If you're nearby one of 'em, consider signing up. There are also races inside of MLB ball parks, which give you the chance to run throughout the park and even on the field.

In addition to your sprints and beasts and supers, there are four new Spartan Endurance races - Hurricane Heat, Hurricane Heat 12 hour, Ultra Beast, and the Agoge (pronounced uh-GOH-ghee).

spartan.com/en/community/blog/spartan-news?article=34498

The Agoge is the final level of a long ascent of endurance events. It follows the Ultra Beast, the Hurricane Heat, and the Hurricane Heat 12-Hour. These bad boys are on the the other end of the spectrum in comparison to the standard sprints. The endurance races require a strong mind and aren't for the weak!

I also want to tell you about Joe DeSena’s new book Spartan Fit!, which will be the sequel to Joe's international bestseller, Spartan Up!

Spartan Fit! is available for pre-order and is a 31-day workout and diet plan to prepare for the Spartan Sprint - or to just get you in ultimate shape. If it's anything like the first book, it'll be a great motivator.

Releasing summer 2016

In the meantime, do yourself a favor - put on your big boy pants or your big girl pants and sign up for a race. I'm the first to admit I don't have a tough mindset, but I felt #unstoppable after finishing my first Spartan.


So who wants to win stuff?! The folks at Spartan Race and I have partnered up to offer up a free entry to any Spartan Race in the continental U.S. AND $10 PayPal cash to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Note: The code will work one time for any 2016 open heat (non-confirmed start time) in the continental U.S.

It's National Puppy Day! Petco & Amazon giveaway

Happy National Puppy Day! I've seen plenty of puppies and dogs on social media today, which is a sight for sore eyes with the news of Brussels terrorism.

Do you have a dog? My wife has begged me for a puppy, but we aren't ready to introduce one to our home just yet. One of the breeds that we've talked about, however, is the Portuguese water dog. One of our previous neighbors had one and it really got us talking.

How cute is this Portuguese water dog pup?

The Portuguese water dog, as you might guess, loves the water and swimming. Did you know they have webbing between their toes which help them swim? These guys are affectionate, fun, and loyal to your family. And they don't shed! Good for people with allergies and good for people who don't like dog hair everywhere in the house.

So in the spirit of National Puppy Day I've got something for everyone, and especially you pet lovers! A $10 Petco gift card AND a $25 Amazon gift card is up for grabs to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. The giveaway is available to everyone worldwide.


I also have a handful of other giveaways going on, so check 'em out if you haven't already.

Light your fire with HomeRight's ElectroLight [giveaway]

Awhile back I partnered with HomeRight for a paint sprayer giveaway and it was a success! I wasn't the only one that was in the painting mood. This time HomeRight is back again to promote their fire starter.

If you came by my blog last summer, you may already know about HomeRight and that DIY projects are their focus. They’re confident their products and tools can help make your project easier, faster, and neater.

HomeRight's ElectroLight Fire Starter is an easy way to light your campfire or grill. The ElectroLight allows you to easily light many things in just 2-3 minutes like your grill, charcoal barbecue, wood burning fireplace, and fire pit.

homeright.com/products/electro-light-fire-starter

I've never seen anything like this fire starter until I saw HomeRight carried it! It uses super high 1,300°F temperature air to ignite, then fan the flames with built-in blower. Be careful with this thing and definitely don't let kids get their hands on it.

Also, no need for lighter fluid or other starter chemicals. The red trigger button has a built-in safety feature, and it must stay depressed to hold temperature. Check out how easy it is to light charcoal:


  1. Touch the tip of the barrel to the charcoal or wood. At 1300 Degree you have more than two times the temperature required to ignite wood.
  2. Once you start seeing embers, while leaving the button depressed, pull the tip slightly away. The blower will continue to fan the flame.
  3. Continue until you get the desired level of fire started.

Some notable features:
  • Durable polycarbonate handle, aluminum cooling shroud, steel cased heating element and cooling stand
  • Intermittent power switch controls heating element and blower
  • 10' heavy gauge grounded power cord
  • Durable heating element, motor and switch to last for hundreds of lights

Star Wars pillow case & Amazon gift card [giveaway]

Last month I posted about a cool TMNT pillow case, custom made by Sara of the SaraLSews Etsy shop. This time I've got another case to show off. Do you like Star Wars?

Did you know bed sheets (and pillow cases obviously) should be washed every couple weeks? Maybe even more frequently. Might as well have a variety of sheets and cases to switch in and out.

Star Wars pillow case

This particular case is the custom Star Wars pillow case, hand-crafted by Sara of course. She started making pillow cases for her grandsons and realized that customized pillow cases are the perfect gift idea for any occasion.

I think it goes without saying that a child would love this. I'm still a fan of Star Wars, so you could gift this to an enthused adult too!

Sara makes pillow cases of all sizes, shape, design, and fabric. From characters to cosmetic satin pillow cases, they're all designed to add that special touch to your home. You're completely assured of a quality handmade item to love and keep forever.

Located in Columbus, OH, Sara's business is run from her family home. Each item is made-to-order, so request a custom order and have something special made just for you!

Gil's Honeybees honey [giveaway]

Despite some 50-degree days recently, it's still fairly cold here, which means I'm still drinking hot tea. And with hot tea I like to add raw honey for some sweetness. Do you like honey?

Gil's Honeybees makes beeswax products, such as candles and skin lotions, from melted honey wax capping. And their honey is always raw, unheated, and unfiltered.

Cool logo!

Their raw honey is also pesticide-free and 100% natural, just as the bees made it. Gil's Honeybees separates each honey variety by the season (thus the variance in colors and richness), and they use natural beekeeping methods.

The bees feed on their own honey throughout the winter, as opposed to having their honey swapped out for sugar replacements like some keepers do. You might not find that as interesting as I do, but it's nice that the food they labored to product isn't just yanked away from them during cold winters. They earned it.

Gil's hives are located in natural areas in the New York Finger Lakes, where the bees have minimal exposure to pollutants and chemicals. I've never been to the Finger Lakes area, but I've heard it's a beautiful place. Ever heard the phrase "Ithaca is gorges?" Not gorgeous, but gorges.

etsy.com/shop/GilsHoneyBees

There are several honey varieties to choose from as of this writing, and there is also limited amounts of creamed honey as well (good for spreading on toast). Gil's usually harvests three times a year for separating honey collected from different flowers, so you've got a few varities to pick from.

Eat local honey and support the bees! Check out a short bee infographic I posted about why they matter.

In the mood for honey now?! Gil's Honeybees is graciously offering a raw honey sampler set (three jars) including basswood, buckwheat, and goldenrod to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Era Organics is back with Dead Sea mud mask [giveaway]

Last year I partnered with Era Organics for a mud mask giveaway and it was a hit! People love mud mask, including myself.

I again had the privilege of trying some Dead Sea mud mask from Era Organics. Customers report seeing a difference after just one use of the mask, and all it takes is 15 minutes. The unique formula is enhanced with organic ingredients including manuka honey, aloe vera, shea butter, and hemp oil for added healing and moisturizing power.

eraorganics.com/dead-sea-mud-mask

Did you know the Dead Sea is the only place in the world with this particular combination of spa benefits? Peculiar sun radiation and climatic conditions, enriched oxygen atmosphere, mineral-rich salt sea, thermomineral springs, and mineral-rich mud. The place is one of a kind.

I'm a fan of this Dead Sea mud mask! Era Organics has two different scents (I prefer the unscented) and you don't need to add water or do any mixing. It's ready to use when you open the jar, as you'll see below.


The mud removes excess oil and dead cells from the skin's surface, and I prefer to focus my application on and around my nose where my pores are biggest. After 15 minutes and then washing away, my skin feels soft and refreshed.

While the mask dries, it soaks up impurities of your skin while holding in moisture. As you rinse, it gently exfoliates to leave healthier, cleaner, hydrated cells.

Directions are easy:
  1. Apply evenly to clean, dry skin. 
  2. Allow to dry for 10-20 minutes. 
  3. Rinse with warm water.
  4. Pat your face dry. 

There's other cool stuff on the site, so check it out and browse around. Era Organics provides the very best ingredients to supply your skin optimum nutrition.

So who wants to win something?! The folks at Era Organics are graciously offering a jar of Dead Sea mud mask to one Giveaway Guy reader. I'm also running a giveaway for moisturizer cream that I encourage you to enter!

Era Organics natural moisturizer cream [giveaway]

Last year I partnered with Era Organics for a mud mask giveaway and it was a hit! If you like mud mask, then you probably like creams, which is the topic of this post.

My wife and I recently had the privilege of trying some natural moisturizer cream from Era Organics. The unique formula includes elements like organic aloe vera, manuka honey, coconut oil, and shea butter with vitamins A, B, C, and E.


Did you know your skin is the largest organ in your body? It's also often neglected. Your skin is the first line of defense against toxins, disease, and infection, so you should take care of it with proven natural products.

My wife's a fan of this moisturizer cream! It's ready to use when you open the jar and you don't need to add water or do any mixing. The formula is hypoallergenic and made for sensitive skin like mine. It's even safe for children. The cream won't clog pores, it's dye-free, and doesn't contain alcohol or parabens. In short, it's safe to use just about anywhere on your body!

There's other cool stuff on the site, so check it out and browse around. Era Organics provides the very best ingredients to supply your skin optimum nutrition.

Nautica Voyage men's cologne [giveaway]

Last month I gave away a bottle of Baldessarini cologne in partnership with CEFashion.net as we promoted fragrances for men.

The giveaway had such a great turnout that I'd like to do another one for cologne - this time for Nautica Voyage, launched in 2006. The fragrance is a sea breeze that carries scents of coastal herbs and woods. It's even been labeled a fragrance for an active, romantic man who lives by his own rules.


Nautica Voyage opens with notes of leaves and apple (perhaps green apple or melon). The composition is laid on a woody base, combined of cedar, moss, musk, and amber.

There are several factors which can affect the natural smell of your skin and the way a scent smells on you. Similarly, factors such as dry or oily skin can even affect how long the cologne's fragrance will last.

Now... who wants some cologne?! I've got a 3.4-ounce bottle of Nautica Voyage By Nautica For Men up for grabs for one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Enter to win using the Rafflecopter form below. You may share on Twitter once a day for extra points for the duration of the giveaway.

8 fun facts about The Revenant

Leonardo DiCaprio finally got his Oscar.

Leo's been but the butt of Oscar jokes for awhile now, and I think the Internet cared more about him not winning than Leo did himself. And he finally broke through with a win for The Revenant.


Whether you've seen the movie or not, you might find these 8 facts about The Revenant pretty cool:

  1. The film was shot strictly using natural light. Aside from the sun, light from fire was only used.
  2. The film was shot chronologically over nine months. This long production time was due to the cold weather, the remoteness of locations, and only shooting with natural light.
  3. Due to production being behind schedule, the snow melted in Canada before filming was completed. Production relocated to southern Argentina to finish.
  4. Actors were taught how to shoot muskets and throw axes, but DiCaprio had already been trained to throw an axe more than a decade ago for Gangs of New York.
  5. DiCaprio, a vegetarian, was given a fake liver to bite where he's eating a dead buffalo in a scene, but he requested the real thing instead and tried a cow's liver.
  6. DiCaprio was initially offered to star in Steve Jobs but agreed to sign on with The Revenant instead.
  7. Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu became the first director in 56 years to win consecutive Best Director Oscars (he won for Birdman in 2015 and The Revenant in 2016).
  8. Iñárritu watched footage of real bear attacks and used a combination of CGI and real elements to choreograph the bear attack scene.
Watch the official trailer for The Revenant:
