Recital Time of Year - Some Cute Ballerina dolls for your ballerina

I'm no longer a mom of 2 dancers anymore :( My oldest graduated last year, so this year it is just my freshman dancing. We have our recital this Saturday and no Nationals this year which is strange.  I think my popular post year round is Gift Ideas for Dance Recital, so decided to do a bit of an update on some of the newer ballerina things out there.

I came across these dolls which I'm dying over, they are so cute! They actually are what inspired this post. Now I don't own these {yet} but they have 4.3 out of 5 stars with 67 reviews, so I feel safe recommending them. All of these recommendations are just my opinion though, do your research.

The Ballerina Princess Doll Pack N Play Gift Setfor $15.95 at time of writing. You get (3) 10" dolls for this price in baby pink, dark pink and purple. They are so cute! I personally would recommend these more for decoration than play. They would look adorable on a shelf!

Here is a soft ballerina doll that is more for play, the 17" Ballerina Doll for Little Girls' Ballet Dance Recital. I love that she has pink yarn hair too. That was one thing I always had a hard time with. My oldest has brown hair and my youngest had blonde hair growing up. I always had to try and find the right hair color and hope it also corresponded with their favorite colors like pink/blonde/, etc.

If you want to give more than a doll or instead of a doll, there is a cute book called I'm a Ballerina! (Little Golden Book).

A little girl invites us into her ballet class, and later performs onstage (gulp!) in her first recital. Young readers will enjoy seeing what happens in a class, and young ballerinas will see themselves in this book.

The Aurora World Ballerina 14.5" Doll with Blonde Hair is an affordable doll option especially for younger girls. She is $11.10 at time of writing and it is a well known brand so you know you are getting better quality than the unknown brands. There is a brunette version that costs a little bit more right now, Aurora World Brunette Ballerina 14.5" Plush in pink and Aurora World Ballerina 14.5" Doll with Brunette Hair in lavender.

This mouse, SO CUTE! I'm a total sucker for stripes. The Organic Farm Buddies Plush Toy, Ballerina Mouse.

Favorite Concealer: NYX Cosmetics Concealer Wand

I love love love this NYX Cosmetics Concealer Wand in Porcelain. It has amazing coverage and it is only $4.99 plus cruelty free!

I originally discovered this concealer when looking for an affordable green concealer that had good reviews. I had purchased some mineral green powder on ebay before, but it always made a huge mess for me when trying to apply it while out. (otherwise I loved it).

I started subscribing to the Subscribe and Save for the Green concealer, which I still buy and use. Then one day, I was reading the reviews again for whatever reason and happened to see someones review on the porcelain. She was using it to cover red which is why I was using the green. I figured I'd give it a try and fell in love! This stuff is amazing and again only $5 or less! I just subscribed to the yellow to try that one out.
