40 WAYS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE #40MINUTECHALLENGE

We are asking you to take 40 minutes to prioritize your pleasure. The #40MinuteChallenge was created to encourage our community to be more intentional about their individual pleasure. When we say pleasure, we mean any experience that feels enjoyable or worthy or seeking. 

Honor your pleasure and take the #40minutechallenge! Choose something that brings you pleasure, define how you’re going to give 40 minutes to it today (doesn’t have to be all at once), then take a picture/video of you enjoying that 40 minutes of pleasure. Make sure to post it to IG, tag @loversstores, and use the hashtag #40minutechallenge to be entered to win a $500 Lovers gift card!
