Have you check out our You Tube Channel? We’ve only just started filming videos so I’m a little rusty but hopefully I’ll get better at the whole vlogging thing soon! Check out this Sassy Bloom Unboxing for our 2 Month Old Baby Boy Box! We have loved both box so far and can’t wait for the next one. You can see our first Sassy Bloom box review and unboxing here and if you fancy learning more about Sassy Bloom or signing up for yourself check them out here. Continue reading
Ok I don’t mean to brag, but seriously how cute is my little dude in that picture above! He is such a sweet baby and loves a cuddle more than anything else in the world right now, which of course I’m fine with as I adore cwtching him all day! But on with the post…we decided when Elian was just a few weeks old that we really wanted to take him to a swimming class when he was small. I grew up as a competitive child swimmer (unit I was 13) and even competed for Wales once (there is a radio interview somewhere out there in the world of me and my parents talking about being a sports star of the future but hopefully that will never surface!!) so swimming was a massive part of my childhood and I really want him to love swimming as much as I do (it might even reignite my passion for it!). Plus there is obviously the huge safety advantage if a child can swim and be confident in the water from a young age. So at 12 weeks old Elian and me took our first Water Babies Class with the lovely Sian!! Continue reading
Thought it might be a bit different to do a mother and baby monthly favourites, rather than the usual beauty monthly favourites you see on You Tube. So here is a little You Tube video of mine and Elian’s monthly favourites for August. This is his 2 month monthly favourites. Please give us a nice thumbs up or leave a comment if you like the idea of Elian’s monthly favourites and we will do it again this month!!
Oh look another little You Tube video! This time I’m bringing you a little shopping haul from Matalan, specifically focused around dressing your post pregnancy body and breastfeeding friendly outfits! Please check it out, give me a like or let me know what you think and subscribe!! We are hoping to start blogging and filming YouTube videos more often so we would love some new subscribers and lots of love please!!
OMG can you believe that our little dude is 2 months old already! They say the last few weeks of pregnancy are the slowest weeks ever, and that is totally true, but in comparison the first few weeks with a newborn are the fastest moving ever, I literally have no idea where 11 weeks have disappeared to. But what an amazing 11 weeks they have been.
Elian has changed our world so much, and we are so in love with this tiny being, even through the difficult times, he makes everything worth while. A simple smile and babble is enough to make my day no matter how tired I may be. I plan to tell you all about my/Elians’s birth story but I’m finding it hard to put down in words so I may have to film it as a YouTube video instead. But I realised I haven’t given you guys any updates on his progress since he was born, although I haven’t really blogged much in general yet as we are still adjusting to having a little person whilst still running a business, blog and house. I promise not to turn this completely into a parenting blog but he’s obviously our whole life at the moment so will be making lots of appearances on the blog! Continue reading
I was tagged by Sarah over at Toby Goes Bananas to complete the Blogging Room 101 Tag and discuss my blogging pet peeves, or what I would put into room 101! Now I don’t pretend to be any sort of blogging expert, but in the 7 years I have been blogging (5 on Daisy Dayz and 2 here on Two Hearts One Roof) I have probably read, or at least looked at, 1000’s of blogs covering all sorts of subject matter and from writers all over the world so I have developed a small list of pet peeves that will have me clicking off a blog the moment the page loads (or doesn’t load see pet peeve number 2!!)

We had always planned to use a sling or wrap when Elian arrived as we love the idea of baby wearing. It always looked as if the baby was comfortable, safe and happy and mum and dad are able to carry on with their day to day with free hands. Wraps look a bit complicated to start with but once you have put it on a few times they are pretty simple to do, and your baby can sit comfortably and snug against your chest and be completely supported and safe.
We have been testing out the KangaWrap since Elian arrived and are loving it. Elian is a super clingy baby, he loves his cwtches and hates being put down (even when asleep!) which has been hard to adjust to in the first few weeks, trying to do normal everyday things and running the business is difficult when one handed and carrying a newborn, but the sling has made it possible.

One of my favourite things to do when I was pregnant was plan and decorate Elian’s Nursery (thats a sneak peek of it on the right!). It still isn’t quite finished because we’re making a big change to the house at the moment so 1 half his room is currently storage, but once that is sorted I get to make the final changes then I can reveal his room properly to you all. He doesn’t really need a room of his own yet, so I’m not worried about getting it sorted asap! But as we had been in the house for over a year when we found out we were pregnant it meant most of it was already decorated and I was missing the fun home decor planning I had when we moved in, so it got to start all over again with nursery decor ideas! Most of our house is neutral (white walls, oak floors) with pops of colour to let the furniture and soft furnishings stand out more, but I decided his room could be a bit more bold and fun! But I’m not going to talk about it today, lol, you’ll have to wait for a proper reveal in a few weeks when its properly finished.
So today I am handing the blog over to John Starr, a freelance writer, father, and DIY enthusiast living in Brighton. In addition to working on his latest project (be it work around the home or a new article), he enjoys spending time with his two children and today he is going to chat to you all about DIY nursery decor.

I’m know I’m biased but you’ve got to agree my little dude really is super cute! Elian is growing fast and time is flying by, he’s 9 weeks old already, and my little chunky monkey! I can no longer call him a newborn as he is most definitely a little baby boy now! And one of my favourite things to do every morning is sort out his outfit (my own outfits are boring at the mo, so getting my fashion fix by dressing the boy!!) Continue reading
Well Elian wasn’t too impressed with his first few baths, there was quite a bit of crying and tears, but now he’s nearly 8 weeks old and is loving the time in the warm water, now there is splashing instead of tears! And personally I love this time, especially the towel drying and cwtches afterwards (thats the welsh term for big cuddles by the way! Welsh cwtches are the best!) Continue reading
