Review: Angelina Ballerina Holiday Gift Set

My little girl has already watched Angelina Ballerina's Holiday Gift Set multiple times; obviously a big fan. ;)  The gift set consists of 3 DVD's that are all great.

"Nutcracker Sweet" teaches kids that eating too many sweets can not only make you sick, but make your athletic/art performance less strong, causing you to feel heavy and tired.  (Perfect reminder for all of us for this holiday season; although I'll speak for myself. lol!)

"Love to Dance" takes you on an adventure in Angelina's life as she moves from her old school to Camembert Academy.  Angelina is very nervous she won't be liked as well at her new school.  She learns that a new school and a new teacher may introduce new concepts to help one grow and accept new ideas.

"Ballet Dreams" continues in Angelina's new life at Camembert Academy.  Angelina learns how to put together her own show.  She also dreams of being the lead in the Mouskinov Ballet and has the opportunity to audition.  Angelina Ballerina "blossoms" in her new school. 

"Nutcracker Sweet" is the most holiday oriented, although all three collectively make a great gift for your little sweetie.  These can be purchased separate; but the 3 together is an excellent value.  Angelina Ballerina Holiday Gift Set is available now from HIT Entertainment and Lionsgate!

I received a Holiday Gift set for review.  All opinions are my own.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
