The Liebster Award

So happy I could squeal; I was nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Leah ( I can't believe people actually read my blog posts so it is so so SO lovely to get this.

The Liebster Award is one which is given to those with less than 200 followers, after receiving it, you then list 11 facts about yourself, answer 11 questions, pick 11 nominees and set them 11 questions to answer (shall I say 11 once more?!). All in all, a great way of spreading some love.

You must link back to the person who nominated you.
You have state 11 facts about yourself
You have to answer the questions given to you.
You have to pick 11 nominees and create a set of 11 questions that they must answer.
You can't nominate the person that nominated you.
You have to tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you.

11 Facts about me:
1.I am left handed.
2.I love watching documentaries and also researching conspiracy theories.
3.I am absolutely terrified of watching horror films. The last horror film I watched resulted in me locking myself in my bathroom to go to sleep until my boyfriend came home. Me + horror films do not mix (needless to say I haven't watched one since this incident).
4.Green is my favourite colour.
5.Fish and seafood really creeps me out, I struggle to watch people even eat it.
6.My brother broke my collar bone when I was 3 whilst playing a game of hide and seek, don't ask...
7.I am so clumsy and seem to fall over all the time (car garages, supermarkets, carparks - you name it and I've probably fallen over there!)
8.My favourite number is two.
9.When I really like I song I play it on repeat and have it as my alarm until I am sick of it and never want to hear it again.
10.I have never been out of Europe.
11.I am addicted to list making.

Here are my questions to answer, set by the lovely Leah:
1. What inspired your Blog name?
My middle name is Isobel and my first name is Emily, so I switched them around to get Bellemi...simples!

2. What is your favorite childhood memory?
My family and I use to rent a house in France in the summer from this crazy french lady who had a three legged dog; my gran came too one year and baked me a ladybug birthday cake (they were my fav when I was four) but singed her eyebrows and eyelashes off whilst baking it.

3. Who is your ultimate style icon?
I'm not into high-end fashion, so things have to be wearable day-to-day in order for me to actually like them. I think Lauren Conrad, she always keeps things classy.

4. Who is your favorite blogger?
Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter.

5. If you could only have 2 beauty items, what would they be?
Foundation and mascara

6. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
"Never regret anything because at some point, you wanted it or thought it was the right thing to do." I think most quotes are pretty cheesy, as this this one really but if I ever doubt a decision I've made I always say this to myself and try and move on.

7. Sweet or Savoury?
Sweet, definitely. Last year when I went to Disneyland Paris I spent 30 euros on pick and mix - need I say anything more?!

8.What qualities do you look for in a friend?
Kindness and a good sense of humour - I am easily pleased.

9.Tea or Coffee?
Coffee, lots of milk and two sweeteners, please

10. Where would you like to see yourself in 5years time?
I'm not sure, I feel like I might jinx myself if I say where I want to be (bonus fact: I'm very superstitious). I hope wherever I am and whatever I am doing in 5 years I am happy and healthy.

11.Favorite Quote?
I sort of answered this above...oops!
