DVD Review and Giveaway: Tangled

So life has been a whirlwind lately with the new baby.

Even with the husband off work, things are going non stop as we juggle feeding, sterilising, settling, washing, playing and nappy changing for the 2 girls.

I love it and wouldn't have it any other way, but boy is it full on!

I got a bit of a break last Saturday when the Husband took Sophie out to swimming and I got to stay home with baby Georgie. She was having a really cuddly morning so I had no choice but to sit on the lounge for a couple of hours with her and watch a movie ;)

I'd been sent Disney's Tangled to review so this was the perfect opportunity to relax and watch it.

I love Disney animated films because although they are targeted at children there is so much for an adult to enjoy!

I got caught up quickly in the Tangled storyline - Rapunzel with a twist - and the time just flew by.

It manages to be a bit of everything - sweet, funny, exciting, sad, and more.

My 2 favourite parts?

1. The 'bar scene' - I can't give anything away but let's just say there is some singing (well, it is Disney!) and great humor. Those lovable thugs ;)

2. The 'lantern scene' - it was beautiful. I cried a bit (stop judging - it was lovely).

I should also point out that after watching this I now have to new goals in life:

1. To be a princess (obviously)

2. To grow my hair really, really long so I can swish it around princess-like whenever I want. In fact, I have bought hair extensions - but thats another blog post ;)

Tangled is out now at all good DVD retailers for RRP DVD $24.95, Blu-Ray Value Pack $39.95, and 3D Blu-Ray Pack $54.95. Give it a go, you'll love it.
