Legends of Oz Review and Giveaway
Legends Of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is a beautiful and colorful trip back to Oz. This musical is filled to the rim with fun and imagination. There is a new antagonist in Oz that Dorothy and her, some new and some familiar, friends have to defeat in order to save Oz. This is a lovely story of friendship and teamwork. Rated PG, it’s the perfect movie for a family with kids over the age of 6. Dorothy is played by the beautiful and talented voice of Glee’s Leah Michele. The new adventure also features the voice talents of Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer, Jim Bellushi, Oliver Platt, Bernadette Peters, Patrick Stewart and Martin Short.
This story takes place after Dorothy’s original trip to Oz. The tornado has left a lot of damage in it’s place. The antagonist in Kansas and the antagonist in Oz are parallel. The “villain” in Kansas tries to condemn all the homes there leaving Dorothy to take matters into her own hands. However, she is whisked away by a rainbow and dropped into Oz. In Oz she goes on a fantastical journey where in order to save her old friends, she is joined by some new faces that help along the way. You can join in the fun with these Activity Sheets from the movie and even enter to win a copy of the Blu-ray, DVD out on August 26th.
I love Summer so much, I decided to show you guys some must haves that I adore.
- sunscreen: I have spray on SPF 50 from Banana Boat and a cute, little glue-stick looking facial sunscreen also from Banana Boat. If I’m going out I throw it on under my light makeup and it works throughout the day. Its my new bestie. I purchased mine from Big Lots for $3.
- baby lips: It is extremely important to stay moisturized during this dry and hot season. Baby Lips and EOS are my FAVORITE lip moisturizers!! However, Baby Lips comes out on top because of its quantity and quality. You can purchase Baby Lips from your nearest drugstore.
- BB cream : Oh my goodness! Maybelline’s bb cream is the holy grail of makeup! It is perfect for the summer time. It is extremely light with the same amount of coverage as a heavy liquid foundation. It is my go-to summer makeup.
