Happy Cards Make the Perfect Last Minute Gift For Nearly Everyone & Giveaway!

Happy Cards Make the Perfect Last Minute Gift For Nearly Everyone & Giveaway!

It's Christmas Eve, which means only one more sleep until Christmas day! This afternoon we head to my Dad's house, which begins the festivities, and I can't even wait! Our Christmas tree is twinkling, our stockings are hung (hopefully) just out of reach of our kitty's paws and a cup of hot cocoa sits nearby. Oh how I love this magical time of year!

While most of my shopping and wrapping is done, I have just a few last minute gifts to get. If you're like me and you're still shopping last minute, I've got a little secret to share with you! I just discovered Happy Cards and they make the perfect last minute gift for nearly everyone! I've also got one to giveaway at the end of this post because 'tis the season!

Happy Cards are gift cards that give the freedom to eat, shop and play at a variety of merchants. Each Happy Card can be used at four to seven places, such as Sephora, Nike, Peet's Coffee, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th, Regal Cinemas, Lord & Taylor, Spafinder, Dave & Buster's, Barnes & Noble, and more, depending on the Happy Card.

Little Green Dress

When I think about holiday style, I tend to reach for red, gold and burgundy. There is something to be said, however, about a little green dress and an unexpected bag. Rarer than the little black dress (LBD) or little red dress, the little green dress can be just as eye catching!

Green is not a color I tend to to consider when adding items to my closet. It's not that I dislike the color, I, in fact, like it very much. As a lover of nature and one who is often more inspired by a green landscape over a concrete jungle, you would expect green to be a staple in my wardrobe. Somehow, however, it's a color I often overlook, but I have to say no longer.

From emerald to juniper to pear to pistachio, I am thinking 2019 might just be the year of green. 2018 saw neon green from the runway to the street and the other shades of green are ready for the spotlight!

The little green dress I am wearing in this post is by Reformation. It is not just green in color, but green in fabric and design. Manufactured in a closed-loop system, meaning all excess materials get reused, this is truly a "green" dress!
