Link Party + Bargain Gadgets Review and exclusive PROMO Code!!

Posted: 02 May 2011 05:59 AM PDT

Happy Monday my friends! But if Monday does not quite rhyme with "happy" for you, then let me cheer you up a bit with a ton of party ideas PLUS a reeeeeally fun find that I just had to share! Keep on reading to find out more....

My son has been pestering me to get him a Spider-Man watch. Not a problem there, except that the watch costs about 50 dollars (gasp!) and he is 5 years old. And any mom of boys out there will agree, at that age they are not terribly careful with their possessions....So this is where Budget Gadgets comes in handy!

When I was first contacted by Budget Gadgets about doing a product review, I scoured their site in search of a worthy product to test, and then I came across these cute watches for about $5 each and I knew they would be the perfect "testing gadget" for my son - AND at that price, I would not have a heart attack whenever he was wearing it! :)


The watches arrived a week later (in Europe), and the shipping was FREE - Another plus point! Budget Gadgets also included two more watches, one for my little girl and one for me and that was a nice surprise too. 

The only thing I was slightly concerned about was the durability. I mean at those bargain prices, how long would they last? But in all honesty, at longer than I expected!

They were worn everywhere, everyday, all the time. They were loved but were also bashed, flung across rooms, and one of them even had water spilled on (accidentally, I may add..) and it still works a month on (more than the usual shelf life in our house..) - So the kids are happy they have "grown-up" looking watches and I'm very happy they're happy! :)

I got thinking, and at those bargain prices, these cool gadgets  (and they have an array of gadgets on their site) would make for fun favors and hostess gifts too, don't you think? So if you want a bargain gadget, FREE shipping WORLDWIDE plus a 5% OFF on your purchase, then use this promo code birdsparty5off.

Happy Shopping! :)

Now show me your parties!!

Keeping a Pet Caique

The Caique is known by a variety of names such as the Seven Color Parrot, Yellow Thighed Caique, Black Headed Caique and the Dancing Parrot. There are, however, two Caiques, namely the Black Headed Caique (Pionites melanocephala) and the White Bellied Caique (Pionites leucogaster). Over the years they have slowly become more popular as pets, as they...

Warblers Ward off Imposters

Cuckoos have never been very popular amongst other birds species. They are known to be lazy parents and have become sophisticated in their methods of camouflaging their own eggs to look like those of other species, so that they are able to introduce their own eggs into the nest and have the other birds raise their chicks. But host birds are beginning...

Monitoring Your Bird's Body Condition

Even though our pet birds are domesticated, there are still some natural characteristics that remain in them, such as the instinct to hide weight loss. In the wild birds are able to mask illness and weight loss as their lives depend on it. It is a survival feature that allows them not to look like the most vulnerable bird, thus protecting themselves...

Here are some photos of an early spring migrating bird, the black and white warbler. We visited Prospect Park in Brooklyn because the weather was supposed to be nice and there had been sightings of a prothonotary warbler. No such luck for us, but we did have some great pizza, red velvet cake and ice cream after birding in Brooklyn.

We look forward to the return of the gray catbird. Sometimes, this bird sounds like a crying baby. Sometimes, the catbird sounds like a cat. Sometimes, it has an upbeat, silly song.

Catbirds eat insects and come to jelly feeders.
