Why You Should Purchase Your Christmas Tree Online

This is the second year in a row that I've received my Christmas tree courtesy of the Internet and I am so happy about the experience. I remember before I tried getting my tree this way I imagined that the only kinds of trees you could get online were fake ones. But you know that isn't true? You can actually get freshly cut Christmas tree from small tree farms that get shipped to you.

So why purchase a Christmas tree online when the lot is just down the street? Well, let me tell you. There are some very good reasons to do it this way that I've proposed and some you may not have thought of before. Here's a few things to think about -

1) You don't own a car.

This is my number one reason for why I've gone route of ordering Christmas trees online. I don't own a car and there's something very un-holiday spirit feeling of lugging up a 6 foot Christmas tree down the street and to my home in the cold and rain. So if you are in this situation and don't want the lack of a car to stop you from having a holiday spirit, you may want to consider purchase yours online.

2) You are spending your Christmas elsewhere.

While chatting with the nice people at Weir Tree Farms, Christie Weir, one of the co-owners told me that one family will be celebrating their holiday season in Disneyland (yes, I'm jealous too) and wanted a Christmas tree there to celebrate with. Aside from the extremely awesome choice to spend Christmas in Disneyland, I think it's a charming idea that the family can still have a traditional celebration with the Christmas tree in the hotel room or place you are staying. I'm sure it's necessary to check with whatever hotel you will be staying at but it's something I would look into if I was in those pretty awesome circumstances.

3) You want to be sure of quality.

 If you check out the customer testimonials on the Weir Tree Farms website, you will find a lot of happy customers. Plenty of people boasting about how wonderful their tree is! It's been a while since I've gone to the local Christmas tree lots, but sometimes it's nice to be sure you are getting the best quality tree. By purchasing your tree online, you can find out what you need to know about the farm you are purchasing from, the type of tree your buying, and other kinds of information. I like knowing things like that.

4) Delivers right to your door.

Whether or not you have a car, sometimes you just want the door to door service. I think that this is a huge perk for Christmas tree delivery. Tying the tree to the roof of your car can be a hassle and lugging it home is never a fun task. So if even if you do have a car, sometimes it's just nice to not have to worry about visiting the tree farm.

So overall, I highly recommend you start this holiday season out by purchasing your tree online, especially if any of the above reasons strike a chord with you. I highly recommend purchasing with the Weir Tree Farms especially. Visit their website and purchase today.

I received a tree in exchange for my review of their tree. A review post will be up later. I have posted these reasons all on my own.


  1. I never thought of it like that but getting it delivered right to your door will stop you from having to lug it around and or the struggle of keeping it on top of your car's roof. Great advice.

  2. Thanks! There are some major perks to having it delivered!

  3. I didn't even think you could get a real tree delivered! It would be great for those of us who are just not physically able to go get one.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

Lotus Foods Rice Review and Giveaway


I tend to eat quite a bit of rice in my diet. First, because it's a healthy grain. Plus, I'm also gluten-free and it's a good grain for me to have that won't negatively impact my body.
So I usually purchase one particular type of rice brand, so I was really eager for the chance to try out a new kind. I tried out rice by Lotus Foods. You may have seen them in the store or heard of them before! 
What makes Lotus Foods different? Well they work towards improving the lives of the farmers they work with first of all. They use what is called a "System of Rice Intensification." It's a way of allowing farms to "double and triple their yields while using 80-90% less seed, 50% less water, less or no chemical inputs." Basically, more rice, less water. So I tend to be a visual learner, so if you want to know more about what this means, watch this really short video below:

They also partner with small scale farmers, which I think is amazing and I really …

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

I absolutely love peanut butter. Really, I mean peanut butter is such a huge part of my diet. And you know, I really appreciate when peanut butter has simple ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And that's it. I don't like added oils and I'm not TOO big of a fan of flavored peanut butters. Although I'd never turn down chocolate peanut butter (if I found the right blend!).
Anyways, I had the chance to try out some peanut butter by a company called, "Crazy Richards." Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter has been around a while. It was formed and combined by two Richards about 30 years ago and was recently passed along to the newest generation.
Well, I got the chance to try out their peanut butter - creamy and crunchy. I loved it. Here's a weird thing I love with peanut butter - whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt with blueberries! Sure people put peanut butter in smoothies, but I scoop out some of my favorite vanilla greek yogurt into a cup and put it in the freezer with …
