The Liebster Award

18 Aug 2014

Hello lovelies!
Excuse my lack of blogging recently, I hope to return to more frequent & interesting posts soon <3
I've actually been nominated by two lovely bloggers, Andie from Andieology and Sammy-Jo from Lover Lost In Space (go say hi to them for me :3), for this award, so I thought I'll just pack it all into one post. Thank you so, so much for nominating me, it made me incredibly happy!

The rules
1. Link back to the person that nominated you for the award
2. You must write 11 facts about yourself so people can learn more about you.
3. You also have to answer the 11 questions given by the nominator
4. After completing this, you should nominate 11 other bloggers that have under 200 followers and then give them 11 questions of your choice. However, you cannot nominate your nominator 
5. You have to let your nominees know that they've been nominated and give them access to the link to find out more about the award.

Eleven facts about me
1. My actual name is not Jill, it's Gili, but I think it sounds like one of the teletubbies.
2. I am going to university in October (that is if I don't mess up due to procrastination) and I am so nervous, it's really bad!
3. I am really bad at these fact thingies. Either that, or i'm just really boring :P
4. I am incredibly one-track-minded, which means that I can't really focus on more than one thing at a time. (this is especially bad, if you have a blog, a tumblr, a youtube channel, recording music and are also trying to not fail at life.)
5. Creating and sharing my 'creations' with people, is one of the most rewarding things in life for me, nothing makes me quite as happy.
6. I am incredibly geeky, but you wouldn't notice it right away if you met me in real life aka a closeted geek.
7. I am what I call a 'lazy perfectionist' which basically means, that if I don't think I'll succeed at something, there's no point for me in doing it at all - I SHOULD CHANGE THAT.
8. I am very sarcastic and sadly I enjoy bad puns WAY too much.
9. Colours make me so so so happy! I think this is the main reason I dye my hair, so that when I look at it it'll make me happy.
10. I drink horrifying amounts of tea.
11. My Internet followers are honestly the best thing that ever happened to me, and I am so greatful for all of their/your support!

Questions from Andie
1. What made you start blogging in the first place?
I had a tumblr for a year and youtube for about half a year and on none of those places I was comfortable posting about fashion and diy's and so on, so I just started something entirely new!
2. Where is your favourite place in the world?
London. I really do feel at home there.
3. What is your favourite TV show?
Doctor Who and I am so excited for the new season this Saturday!!
4. What is the last movie you saw at the cinema?
I honestly can't remember, it was ages ago.
5. What is your favourite animal?
6. What would be your ideal date?
Maybe a movie and a bar afterwards, with some live music maybe.
7. What is the nicest present you've ever recieved?
When I turned 18 a group of friends, whom I've known for more than 10 years, made me this adorable and thoughtout scrapbook and it really was the nicest present I've ever gotten!
8. If you were stuck on a desert island who would you like to be stuck with?
Definitely with someone who wasn't afraid of spiders and insects like me, so that they could just swat them away :D
9. Can you play any instruments?
I play the guitar but I would want to play so many more!
10. Who is your favourite fictional character?
I'd have to say Alanna of Trebond by Tamora Pierce, though she's not really well known. I grew up with her, I read the books at least 12 times and she'll always be very special to me.
11. What is your favourite clothing store?
Vero Moda, though what I see of Topshop is gorgeous (we don't have it here, sadly)

Questions from Sammy-Jo
1. What is your favourite season & why? 
Either Autumn or Winter, because I can cuddle up with a good book and a cup of tea, wear lots of layers and eating too much sweets is totally fine.
2. Why did you decide to blog?
I saw what others did and saw the lovely community and I just wanted to be part of it.
3. What are 5 things you have on your bucket list?
Move to the UK, go on a looooong road trip with friends, get a tattoo, visit Sweden, be in a band.
4. Describe yourself in one word
As a lovely comment on youtube once said: Big-nosed-ginger (totes one word)
5. Where is your favourite place in the world?
6. What are your top 3 favourite films?
Currently: The Fall, Moonrise Kingdom, Garden State
7. Where is your favourite place to eat out?
La Perla, which is an adorable Italian restaurant near where I live.
8. Which bloggers are you currently loving?
9. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully done with uni, a job that I like and in the UK 
10. What is your dream job?
Currently something with film or graphic design
