Mother’s Day 2015

That 9-5 job that you love? Check. A high salary with extra benefits? Check. A nice vacation or a weekend trip to an island paradise? Check. All of these are just the perfect package any employee could ever dream of. Nothing could be better. But if you’re given a job that will have you work whole year round until your bones breaks, have you work without salary, days-off, or holidays, or have you work even though you are nursing a headache, will you take it? That sounds terrible, right? However, believe it or not, there is someone who takes that job. In fact, there are people who do that job in addition to holding down a job. If you haven’t guessed yet who that person is, the answer is simple: It’s Mum.

Motherhood is considered by most people as a lifelong vocation rather than a job. For mothers, having no breaks, no salary, and working all year long are just nothing compared to the joy and smiles her family radiates because of her selfless acts. Mum wakes up early to pack our lunch and prepare us for school. Mum budgets the family finances, runs errands, and pays bills. Mum is our personal doctor, nurse, police officer, guardian angel, diary, chef, lawyer, adviser, all rolled into one. With the various roles Mum plays in our lives, should we not show our love and gratitude to her?

Mother’s Day is next weekend, and before that special day comes, why not take the time to plan a really nice present for Mum? For all the hard work Mum does every single day of the year, she deserves a really exquisite surprise. If finding the right gift can induce migraines, give her some really awesome DVDs.

There are a myriad titles out there for you to choose, and we at DVDLand offer some new releases that Mum will surely love like the new Downton Abbey Series 5 DVD or any of our 40,000 items on our website.

Show your love and appreciation for Mum by cooking for her, doing chores for her, and giving her a heartfelt gift. Let Mum enjoy luxuries on Mother’s Day like enjoying a lovely meal and lounging comfortably on the couch and watching DVDs. Make her the queen of the day. That would be perfect.

Star Wars The Force Awakens

Is Star Wars The Force Awakens DVD the most eagerly awaited movie release of all time?

Oh yes! The Force is back! And this time, it’s stronger than ever before! Though the seventh movie of the new Star Wars film will premiere in cinemas in time for Christmas, we can already feel the magnetic pull of the Force. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” with the plot taking place about 30 years after “Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi,” will bring us new adventures and characters to look out for. Of course, the old-time Star Wars cast Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher will return as Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia Skywalker correspondingly. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is directed by sci-fi director J.J. Abrams and will bring in the old and the new. The latest movie trailer was released last week and has been viewed by over 40 million people on YouTube. It has also the world abuzz when Han Solo uttered to his first mate Chewbacca, “Chewie, we’re home.” How seriously cool is that for us Star War nerds.

Isn’t it great to see it set years after Return Of The Jedi? That way the actors are playing their age as about 30 years has passed since the filming of Return Of The Jedi. Rumours were flying around the Darth Vadar was coming back and Disney did mischievously add fuel to this fire by showing a banged up Darth Vadar mask in the latest trailer. But alas we’re not really expecting Vadar to return even as Anakin Skywalker but maybe, just maybe we might see him as a ghostly figure like we saw at the very end Episode 3.

Can the new Star Wars movie be such a success without Darth Vadar, Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi? You betcha it can. Have a look at the trailer on the DVDLand website and you’ll agree this is going to be massive.

There is more great news for Star Wars fans everywhere. Star Wars The Force Awakens DVD will be released in 2016. Imagine getting your very own Star Wars The Force Awakens DVD and adding it to your own Star Wars collection. Imagine getting it first. You would be the envy of your friends. Watch this fantastic movie of the year in your favourite cinemas, and relive the intergalactic adventures with this new Star Wars DVD in the comforts of your own home. Maybe even organise your own Star Wars party.

We are sure that Star Wars The Force Awakens will be the talk of the town, and will garner awards left and right in major film awarding ceremonies. We are also sure that this legendary masterpiece created by George Lucas will have a massive cult following just like the first six Star Wars movie installments. And we are also sure that Star Wars The Force Awakens DVD will be the highlight in your lounge room, and will be a sure hit for the whole family. Star Wars The Force Awakens DVD will be available for pre-order soon, so fans should check out DVDLand often to be the first to order and to subscribe to the DVDLand Newsletter. May the Force be with you.

Ah, childhood! I miss those golden days!

Those were the days when we ran around and play like there’s no tomorrow. Those were the days when we were just being careless and carefree. Those were the days when we stayed up late playing video games, watching cartoons, doodling our favorite superheroes, or letting our imagination fly with fantastic, wild, and far-fetched stories. Those were the days when fun meant pool parties, camping out under the stars, the park, ice cream and hamburgers, and sleeping over with friends. Those were the days when we were dreaming big and dreaming freely, without even strategically planning how to get there. Childhood is a “hakuna matata” way of life.

Working Off Those Easter Chocolates

Work Off Those Easter Eggs With A Fitness DVD

Easter is over for another year and if you’re anything like me, you enjoyed some find food and plenty of Chocolate Easter Eggs. But before that chocolate hits the hips it might be time to grab some Fitness DVDs and work it off.

Easter is a time of new life and new beginnings. It was a wonderful time for scrumptious food and exciting family gatherings. The typically Aussie Easter is characterised by food, festivities, church and family. Crave on pancakes and hot cross buns. Feast on roasted beef, chicken, or lamb with the whole family. Hunt all the colorful Easter eggs and get rewards for the maximum number of eggs gathered. Some of us would have had some Chocolate Bilbies and helped preserve our very own Easter mascot and marsupial, the Bilby. We hope you enjoyed the Easter extra long weekend and maybe took in some local cultural events such as Queensland’s Australian Gospel Festival, West Coast Blues ‘n’ Roots Festival or Sydney’s Royal Easter Show.

But hey, do not let all the festivities and food increase your waist circumference. All the goodness that the Easter banquet has to offer should not be a reason for you to take your health for granted. Looking good and being fit are what we always want for the whole year, so why sabotage the effort? Even if Mum claims her pancake recipe is low on calories, calories are still calories, and they pile up if you don’t get fit. And there’s no need to spend hefty dollars just for gym membership. Why not get a fitness DVD instead, and work out in the comforts of your own home? Work off those Easter eggs with fitness DVDs!

With so many fitness DVDs to choose from, there’s no way you’ll get bored doing the same routine every single day. Work out, burn calories, and get toned with Biggest Loser DVDs, Michelle Bridges DVDs, and Jillian Michaels DVDs. Increase your heart rate and enjoy those cool dance moves with Tracy Anderson DVDs. Artfully control your movements, get flexible, and get into shape with Pilates DVDs. If you want your workout calm but still with results, grab some yoga DVDs. Who says exercise should be monotonous?

DVDLand has the widest range of fitness DVDs across Australia, so it is easy to stay fit and stay fab. There’s nothing wrong with consuming hot cross buns on Good Friday, or indulging in the Easter feast your aunt prepares for the whole clan, but moderation to the diet and exercise are keys to trimming your waistline. And when we mean exercise, we mean getting fitness DVDs and enjoying it anytime and anywhere you like.
