Happy Monday, friends!

I’m not sure what the situation is where you live, but we finally got a serious dose of spring weather here over the weekend… and I can’t decide whether that makes it easier or harder to get back into the swing of the work week. I’m torn between feeling so energized that nothing can bring me down and wanting a few extra hours to simply enjoy life without a winter coat.

Either way, I’m happy to share that today is GIVEAWAY DAY — and I hope that makes your Monday a little sunnier : )

This month, I’ve partnered with my friend Elise to offer one reader a special treat from one of my favorite brands, Beautycounter. I’ve been lucky enough to feature several of this company’s products in previous giveaways — but this month, the prize is extra special because it’s LIP COLOR (my favorite): one Beautycounter Color Intense Lipstick in the shade of your choice!

If these great color options aren’t enough to have you already psyched to enter, don’t forget that Beautycounter is also known for its safe approach to skincare and makeup. Like the brand’s other products, the (new!) line of Color Intense Lipstick is all natural and tested against strict safety standards to make sure that you’re not putting your health at risk by using it. I started working Beautycounter into my own routine about a year ago and have been so happy with the results! Since I have a few friends who are involved with the company, I’ve learned a lot over the last few months about the dangerous practices of so many leading beauty brands. (I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s true!) Since I love a good lipstick — hello! — I’m so happy that there are safer options like this out there, and I can’t wait to collect all eight shades myself.

In the meantime, though, I’m so happy to be offering a free Color Intense Lipstick to one of you!

To enter, add a comment to this post below. It’s that simple! And if you want to take one tiny extra step to make someone else’s Monday a lot better (and to help share the Finding Plan A love), why don’t you go ahead and send this link to a friend or post it to Facebook? I’m a firm believer that more really is merrier.

I’ll draw the winner randomly one week from today, Monday 4/30. The winner will be announced right here on the blog! Good luck!

(Unfortunately, you’re not eligible to win this contest if you live outside of North America, due to shipping concerns. I’m sorry about that!)

You can check out the rest of Beautycounter’s offerings right here! Please be sure to shop that link so that we can support Elise and the awesome, health-focused business she is building. Fun fact: Elise and I fell in love on the first night of sorority recruitment back in 2009 (I was desperately trying to get her to join my house!) and we’ve never looked back. She’s a total rock star!

Happy Giveaway!
