Oh My Blog! Let’s Talk Love

This is Oh My Blog! A brand new monthly interview series featuring a whole host of fellow bloggers. Each month, we’ll be bringing you different themed posts showcasing the very best bloggers out there. This month, the questions are based on the fitting February topic of love!

This month, we’re meeting Simone from Underneath The Staircase.

Tell us about yourself and your blog.

My name is Simone, I am 24 and I suffer from anxiety, I started blogging as a way for me to express myself. My blog is called Underneath The Staircase, as well as writing about myself, I write and document days with my daughter.  

What is your current relationship status?

I never thought I would be one to say this but ‘ it’s complicated/single’ suits me well at the moment.

Do you  ever celebrate Valentine’s’ Day?

Yes, on the 15th February when everything is half price!

It’s your first date! Where do you go?

Ice skating, so if the dates going bad you can ‘accidently’ lose them.  

What’s the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?

I had a surprise knock at the door once, blankets had been laid out so we could look up at the sky and watch for shooting stars.

What is your favourite romantic film? Cheesier the better.

Love Actually! I watch this film far too much.  

Spill the beans! Who’s your celebrity crush?

This changes every week! But right now it’s Calum Best.  

Flowers are pretty popular at this time of year. Do you like receiving them or do they really not float your boat?

I love receiving flowers but I have a habit of not putting them in water and they die, maybe some delivered in a vase would be good.

Do you have children? Do you want any (or any more)?

I have one child, a little girl who is 20 months old and called Aella. I would love more children, since a young age I have wanted a big family.  

What would be (or was) your choice of song for your first dance at your wedding?

This changes for me every time a new single is released! Currently Ed Sheeran Thinking Out Loud or James Arthur Say You Won’t Let Go.

Do you have any plans yet for Valentine’s Day 2017?

No, I’m likely to forget it’s Valentine’s day until I see everyone sharing photos of their gifts on social media. Although I would like to take my daughter out the buy her a rose.

Raw oysters are pretty famous for being an aphrodisiac. Have you ever tried them?

No and I don’t intend to try them either. Just the thought makes me feel a little unwell.

Imagining money’s no object, where would you go for a romantic getaway?

I would stay in a glass igloo in Finland, hoping to see the Northern Lights.

What’s the best Valentine’s gift you’ve ever received?

On the 14th February 2013 I was met from work, he had in his hand a bunch a roses and a note which read ‘I will love you, until the last rose dies’. It wasn’t until all the roses had died that I saw one left (plastic), which I still have now. Despite our current situation, he still tells me he loves me everyday.

Finally, what is the number one most important thing you value in a relationship.
