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 Emma from Emma and Family
1.    Tell us about yourself and your blog.
My blog is Emma and Family and as the name suggests, it is about me and my family. It started off as a youtube channel doing pregnancy vlogs when I was pregnant with my son Harrison but after he was born I found finding the time to put on make up, sit down, film and edit too time consuming and I was hardly ever posting. Then another year and a half down the line I still had an urge to share my life and my experiences and the sister blog to my youtube channel was born.

2.    What is your current relationship status?
I am in a relationship with my son’s father, but not married or engaged yet. We had been together for about 4 years now.

3.    Do you  ever celebrate Valentine's’ Day?
We do celebrate Valentine’s Day, we aren’t into massive over the top presents but Fabio my boyfriend does normally buy me a bunch of flowers and we try and go out for dinner if we have a childminder available. This year our son will actually be at nursery all day on Valentine’s Day so we have both booked time off work to go and have a date day whilst he is at nursery.

4.    It’s your first date! Where do you go?
I suppose the dream first date is filled with flowers and chocolates and fine dining and all that romantic stuff. Our first date was actually to Nando’s and then for a couple of drinks at a student bar. But we were students and budget was definitely a factor.

5.    What’s the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?
The most romantic thing anyone has ever done was by Fabio again, for my birthday the first year we were together he whisked me off to Paris for a long weekend.

6.    What is your favourite romantic film? Cheesier the better.
I’m not really into romantic films! Probably Love Actually but I mostly enjoy that as a Christmas film that gets me feeling all warm and fuzzy and Christmassy.

7.    Spill the beans! Who’s your celebrity crush?
Danny Mac, originally of Hollyoaks fame but his recent stint on strictly come dancing only grew my love for him!

8.    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! Mainly because I never buy myself flowers and I adore having them around the house!

9.    Do you have children? Do you want any (or any more)?
We have one 2 year old son and are currently trying for our second child. I want 3 kids, I think.

10.  What would be (or was) your choice of song for your first dance at your wedding?
I would love to have the ‘A Thousand Years Part 2’ but Christina Perri which is known for being in Twilight which annoys me slightly because I’m not a huge Twilight fan but it is a gorgeous song about falling in love.

11.  Do you have any plans yet for Valentine’s Day 2017?
Not sure what we are going to do yet, but we have almost a full day child free so we will definitely go and do something!

12.  Raw oysters are pretty famous for being an aphrodisiac. Have you ever tried them?
Nope not tried them.

13.  Imagining money's no object, where would you go for a romantic getaway?
One of those huts in the sea in the Seychelles. That is literally my dream holiday.

14.  What’s the best Valentine’s gift you’ve ever received?
Oh god, I hope Fabio doesn’t see this. I can’t remember what he has got me for Valentine’s. Awkward.

15.  Finally, what is the number one most important thing you value in a relationship.
I think the most important thing in a relationship is the friendship that the rest all rests on. Sex, romance, passion, all of that is really important but none of that is going to be there without a solid friendship at the heart of it all.
