Little People Photo Discovery Game by Fisher-Price


It’s that time of year where we start making our list and checking it twice…oh wait, that’s Santa! No seriously, if you are like me, you are probably starting to put together lists of all the people you need to purchase a gift for and what you are thinking about getting them. I find that I am a lot less stressed out when I have some sort of plan in place. What about you?

My kids are older now (8 and 10), but I have lots of nieces and nephews that are younger and it is so fun to give them gifts that I know my kids loved when they were their age or things I know my kids would have loved, had it been around. One thing I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that my kids would have loved as a toddler is the Little People Photo Discovery Game by Fisher-Price.


This educational game features fun animals and matching concepts. It promotes:

  • Patience and Turn-Taking
  • Focus and Concentration
  • Cooperation
  • Matching and Memory Skills

I like that the camera is built to not only fit into toddler hands, but it is meant to withstand a toddler. Mine may be older, but I remember may times where frustration won out and a toy was dropped because a tantrum was brewing! But if you think about it, this is really a genius toy for Fisher-Price. Not only do kids love and recognize Little People, but how kids love cameras! They like having their picture taken, they like taking a picture and they like seeing a picture!

This a toy that is definitely high on my gift giving list this year. What about you, do you have a little one in your life that would enjoy this game?

Pearls by Laurel – Mothers Jewelry

It’s that time of year again!!! Time for the 2014 Holiday Gift Guide! I am very excited about my first submission in this guide! This is for all the mothers and grandmothers and great grandmothers out there!! So sit back and be sure to read through this entire post because I have a great savings code for Pearls by Laurel for you at the end!

*I received a piece of jewelry for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% my own*

About Pearls by Laurel

Pearls by Laurel is a company that was founded in 2008 and they specialize in Mother’s Jewelry. Each bracelet features genuine Swarovski pearls. Designing your bracelet is super easy! Simply choose the birthstones you want in your bracelet and drag and drop.


I knew that when I designed my bracelet, I wanted it to have my birthstone and my husbands birthstone. I guess you could say I wanted more of a family bracelet instead of just a Mother’s bracelet. Both my husband and I have the same birthstone (amethyst), Zachary’s birthstone is alexandrite and Bella’s birthstone is tourmaline. Here is what my beautiful piece of Mother’s jewelry looks like:


Each bracelet starts at $29.95. That includes between one and six birthstones. If you need more that six birthstones, that’s OK! Each additional birthstone is $4 more. Once you’ve decided on the amount of birthstones, simply drag and drop your birthstones onto the bracelet! You can change things around as many times as you want until you get it just right!

How to Size

Pearls by Laurel has a sizing chart for you to use to determine the best size. According to the size chart, I was a size medium, however I do not like bracelets to be too snug on my wrist. It drives me crazy and I would end up taking it off and that defeats the purpose of buying a piece of jewelry! If you make a mistake in the size…don’t worry, Pearls by Laurel will re-size it for FREE!! Can’t beat that customer service!

Speaking of awesome customer service, Pearls by Laurel offers a lifetime guarantee! If you break you bracelet at ANY time, simple contact them via email and they will take care of everything!! It is helpful to have your order number available…so keep that in a safe place!

Referral Program

Love your bracelet? Then tell your friends!! For each friend you tell who purchases a custom bracelet, they will receive free shipping and you will receive a $15 credit!! There is absolutely NO limit on how many referrals you can earn!

If you would like to order a custom Pearls by Laurel Mothers Jewelry for yourself or a loved one, please feel free to use this code for FREE shipping: SHIPFREE.
