Usually, I run giveaways on the 23rd of the month, BUT since Matt and I are heading up to Maine early tomorrow morning to celebrate our first wedding anniversary (say what?), we’re a little ahead of schedule… and Giveaway Day is TODAY! It’s kind of like an early start to the weekend, no?

The prize for June comes from our friends at The Shine Project. For those who don’t know, this is one of my favorite companies — and it happens to also double as an amazing cause. I got involved as an ambassador for Shine last spring. You can read the whole story here, but essentially, Shine supports inner-city American students on track to be the first in their family to go to college by teaching them to make jewelry and offering them employment and mentorship. Student employees at the Shine centers have the opportunity to work hard to earn money for their higher education, so the purchase of Shine products supports their academic goals. A portion of the profits also goes toward a scholarship fund that benefits the Shine kids. I absolutely love this organization– and I’m obsessed with the jewelry, too! It’s easy-to-wear, affordable, trendy, and supports a really awesome cause.

I’ve been saving this particular bracelet for a summer giveaway because the color is so perfectly fresh and fun, and the sweet charm will look extra amazing with a little tan. I also think this shade of green can go with almost anything. It’s practically a neutral!


All you have to do to enter to win this giveaway is to COMMENT on this post! As always, I’d love to see you share this link with friends so that more people have a chance to win (and to check out the blog!) — I run a giveaway every month, so you can count on another opportunity to win something in just a few weeks!

I’ll draw the winner randomly one week from today, Thursday 6/29. The winner will be announced right here on the blog. Good luck!
