So we officially started toilet training our recently-turned two year old on the weekend. Being our second child we thought we would remember everything. We didn’t.
We’re on day six and things are going well! Here’s what we did (and some tips for those prepping and wondering where to start).
Whenever I have a take-away coffee in my hand and cute lil boots on I think of Ina from @sneakersandsoul. I mean she makes getting a takeaway coffee seem like the coolest thang ever! Carefree, empowering and inspiring would be how I describe Ina. I love the way she is a total boss of her life, oozes grace, sass & effortless style, but at the same time is so freaking down-to-earth I kind of just want to run away with her! Major #mumcrush over here.
Every morning for the past few months I’ve started my day with a cup of coffee loaded with butter and coconut oil. It’s delicious, doesn’t make me cray cray like regular coffee does and it keeps me feeling full right up until lunch time. I’ve shared my morning coffee ritual on my Instagram stories a few times and have had lots of people wondering what the heck it’s all about, so I thought I’d explain.
I am going to do a month long detox. I am going to do yoga. Go swimming. Walk at least one hour every day. Stop drinking coffee. Do a juice cleanse. No gluten. No sugar. No dairy. No meat. No caffeine (like NONE). Seriously I think I was in a we-sold-our-house-and-have-no-where-to-live-false-sense-of-security-frame-of-mind. When I look at that I think Emmy … what on earth were you thinking? Not only did I say I was going to do all that … I went and freaking published it on Instagram for the whole world (ahem 3K+) people to see. Like seriously? Only one word for this type of thinking. CRAY. (Yes I am aware that isn’t actually a word).

Everything in the room was styled to perfection. Hanging foliage from the ceiling. Candles and flowers on the low table; which was surrounded by the softest sheep-skin mats and crisp white walls (I’m a sucker for white walls). It was literally like I had walked into a pinterest board. I was in love.
