Sorry for my silence but I was just bringing Lentil into the world! 😍.
Introducing our son Xavier Brave Brauer who came charging through at 3:18am on Sat 21st April 2018. To say our birth story was anything less than power 💥 magic 🌟 insanity 🌊 would not be doing it justice, @ryanbrauer was my rock, my strength and everything I could have dreamt of for a partner, he even pulled little Xavi out and cut the cord himself, but I’ll save that for another post. Right now I just want you all to meet Xavi - my 3,65kg 50cm slice of pure heaven. Oh yeah.... his head was 38cm at birth and I’m still alive 💪🏽😂 😍.
Best part, our wonderful friend @kellyjaynetrin was there to capture it all 📸

Yum yum yum in my huge tum!
Starting every morning these last few days of pregnancy with a bowl of this deliciousness: @clicks_sa SmartBite Chia seed soaked in @bluediamondalmondssa Almond milk (unsweetened) with SmartBite range of mixed seeds, dates, mixed nuts, cranberries, coconut flakes and goji berries. Topped off with some fresh fruit and I’m ready to munch! I’ve been craving cereal a lot the last few weeks so this really hits the spot!

This was hands down one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in Cape Town! @mantracafe.za in Camps Bay.
Courgette & Potato Hash Browns
Topped with sautéed kale, roasted heirloom tomatoes, poached egg, hollandaise and dukkah. 
Paired with a delicious berry loose leaf herbal tea ☕️.

Lentil was having NONE of this fomo for the Squishy life and joined us three weeks later, what a ride it’s been! Thank you @ryanbrauer for keeping me on my toes and always trying to make me a better version of who I was yesterday.... even if I forget to put the lid on my vitamins, and the coffee, and the almond milk, and the bio oil, and the brovil.... 🤪 I love you so much and can’t wait to dive into this parent thing with you, you’re going to be one phenomenal father, I’m a lucky women to have you by my side! Squishy love forever and ever!!! 📸 @mahinth_rm

Going raw vegan (as much as I can 🤪) for the final stretch of Lentils gestation! This is for better healing after birth and to aid in a better natural delivery... but how lekker are the COLOURS that come with raw food! Love it!!! Thanks @woolworths_sa 😉

On Saturday I got to tick something off my bucket list! I’ve been following @nikkialbertyn for a few years back when she was at @silwoodkitchen and producing some of the most gorgeous food and food photography I’d seen! Then when she opened @sweet.lionheart I’ve been in awe of the beautiful creations they whip up (go have a look at their flower macaroons - just too beautiful). FINALLY I made it to one of their butter cream workshops where I made this bad boy! Anyone who is interested in baking and learning some amazing techniques I’d highly recommend signing up for one of their workshops, it was wonderful to learn all the skills I need to bake the best birthday cakes for Lentil 😋

PART 2 of 2...
Happy international women’s day! It’s been a jam packed day of chaos and I’ve spent the whole day thinking about my life and my career and the women who have affected essentially who I am right now! So I want to give them a shout out! ➡️.
5️⃣: My Lungs, @lungibazi - my sister at @puregoodsa ,who’s been with me since day 1. Lungi worked her way up from a sculler to manager, completing a UCT Restaurant Management Course along the way and now managing the Cafeteria at The Foschini Group. She lives and breaths the Pure Good life, channeling what I have worked so hard to build, every day in that store.  Lungs you make me so proud to stand besides you in this business, and only up from here!!!!
6️⃣: my Work wives @missilewis and @r_erasmus ! You girls keep me sane and have been so instrumental in my growth as a business owner @missilewis the kindness you show my team, especially my starfish humbles me, you are a true caring soul who goes out of their way every day to make someone’s life a little better by even the smallest of actions. Rach - my word women, where would I be without you.... you keep me calm, sane and motivated to just keep on bloody swimming, your support is so appreciated and I only hope I return the favour in my brilliant ideas and craftiness 🤣 I am so flippen grateful for you both 😘
7️⃣: my starfish @hans.cecilia - no words for how much I love and am in awe of you! You are strong, courageous, motivated and determined and in the five years since starting Pure Good YOU my poops, are my greatest achievement! You are going to go so far Cesonks, and I’m so happy I get to help you fly! 
8️⃣: my bestie, my soulmate, my number 1 @moustashi - it’s rare in life to have best friend who can tell you straight up that you are an effing moron and that they love you in one breath. Someone to hold up the mirror to your true self and love you for it regardless. You have opened my eyes to what being a true feminist is, to standing your ground and believing in what is right! You have patiently watched me go through my weird life stages and been there with open arms to welcome me back to real life! BBUDDUP /bee stings to the grave/ I LOVE YOU

Happy international women’s day! It’s been a jam packed day of chaos and I’ve spent the whole day thinking about my life and my career and the women who have affected essentially who I am right now! So I want to give them a shout out! ➡️.
1️⃣: My family rocks, my mama bear @smutsiesdeb who has taught me my most valuable lesson in life, kindness - I have watched my mom give back to everyone around her my whole life, friends, family and the community without ever expecting anything in return. She works harder than anyone I know and is the source of my work ethic! My sisters @taryn.l.smuts and @nicolesmuts who challenge and teach me more and more about myself every day that goes by. I’m so blessed to be going on this journey of pregnancy with Taryn and if not for her wisdom and knowledge in the power of birth I would not be nearly as ready to meet my Lentil.
2️⃣: my amazing godmother @steynjoann a woman who has shown strength that no one could dream of possessing, you have loved me like a daughter from as early as I can remember and I cherish our amazing relationship we have. I love you so much 😘
3️⃣: my wonderful friend @kellyjaynetrin , who shows me what true compassion and selflessness is in everything she does. You will not meet a kinder soul who devotes her life to so much good. she even fostered a blind lab 🐶 who would surely have been put down if it were not for Kel’s hard and thankless Work in rehabilitating him to go on to live a better life. I’m so grateful to be able to call you my friend 😍.
4️⃣: Although she was never my direct boss, I had the privilege of working under @sallyemery_gh at my time at Good Housekeeping magazine. She is my Lady Boss inspiration, and I strive to one day lead a team that looks up to me the way the people who are fortunate enough to work for GH look up to her! Sally you have been my number one supporter in all I do since I left and I get the same warm glow with each praise as I did when you wrote “lovely layout” on one of my pieces. Thank you for showing me what a great leader is!

Lentil & Mom 🤰🏼January 2018. 
When my INSANELY talented friend @leeannecpt asked if she could snap some pics of me at 6 months preggers I was a little nervous at first, but looking at these amazing shots of my lentil and the journey my body has taken to get to this point I’m so grateful for what was captured! Lee-Anne you are beyond gifted my friend, thank you for these moments I will treasure forever, and my word did we laugh (and give the old age Home across the road a good show on the balcony 😂). Hit @leeannecpt up if you want to capture some beautiful memories of your own bump, it’s so worth it now that it’s coming to an end, I’m going to miss being pregnant...
