{WIN} A Paw Patrol Jungle Rescue hamper worth R2,500.

Paw Patrol has been a firm favourite in our household since Jordan first laid eyes on those cute pups. I mean, the kid honestly believes some days that he IS Ryder. I, apparently, am Skye and Banjoe of course, being a bulldog and all is our very own Rubble. Jordan sometimes makes him wear a yellow hard hat so that he really looks the part but it never lasts very long. Jordan is HUGE into role playing and it’s just the sweetest thing.

{RECIPE} Tangy vegan cauliflower & tomato bake. #FoodLoversFestive

Guys, when I say this is one of the easiest meals I have ever cooked, I seriously mean it. I have mentioned this before, I am ALL about the convenience of cooking as I just don’t have the time to spend hours in the kitchen, as much as I would love that.

The other day I bought two cauliflowers on special at Food Lovers Market – they are full of amazing deals and cauliflower is my favourite vegetable so I bought two massive heads of cauliflower. I made an incredible salad our of my new ‘Deliciously Ella’ book and then I was left with one massive cauliflower and no idea what to do with it.

It’s a wrap and we have ALL the love for Lego.

I’ve decided to do a little wrap up of an amazing 6 month partnership with Lego and Duplo. I was so excited when they contacted me to work with them. From the around the world sets to my first caterpillar, we have had the best time unwrapping and exploring these amazing products. Nic and I are such huge Lego and Duplo fans. We had Lego and Duplo growing up and even as an adult, Nic is absolutely besotted with Lego. What’s not to love?

Creative play with Duplo.

As wonderful as it is for kids to play alone, I just love toys that encourage kids to share and play together using their imaginations and utilising their toys in a thousand different ways. Duplo is without a doubt one of those toys, and it is timeless. No matter where you go or who you’re with, bring a box of Duplo along and you’re sorted.

We go away to Paternoster with friends every few months for the weekend, it’s one of our favourite retreats. The crisp air and beautiful views paired with the company of wonderful friends in a beautiful beach house is one of the greatest joys we have the privilege of being a part of. Jordan adores his bestie Grace and for the most part they play so well together.

A visit to the local fire station, and Jordan’s Duplo firetruck.

Jordan has always LOVED fire engines. I am not sure what it is with little boys and things that move but Jord has always naturally gravitated towards cars and trucks. Firemen are always portrayed to be SUPER cool in all the television shows, and they really are very cool. Kids look up to them, they idolise police men and fire fighters because they are heroes.

The other day we decided to try our luck at our nearest fire station in hopes that they’d let us have a closer look at one of the fire engines. We just knew that it would make Jordans day. We got so much more than we bargained for. We brought some cupcakes with us for the firemen as they work incredibly long shifts – 24 hours at a time to be exact. And everyone loves a chocolate cupcake.
