Tag! I'm it! (Again!)

I've been tagged once more, this time by the awesome Helen over at Beautifully Superfluous. The rules are:

1. Answer the 11 Questions set for you.
2. Make up 11 Questions for the 11 people you tag.
3. Mention the blogger that tagged you.
 So here I go, answering Helen's questions!
1. What is your main blogging goal?
 For this year, I would say to reach 100 followers on GFC, but in general, just for people to enjoy reading it. I've recently had some lovely feedback on my blog, and it's spurred me on to keep writing in my own style.
2. Do you have any pets and what are they called?
 Sadly no. Kris is allergic to most long-hair animals, and we don't have the space and time to look after anything exotic. Would love to have a little Jack Russell though; Kris' dad has one called Tanya and we'd love a little tyke like her!
Ain't she sweet!

3. Whats your favourite sweet thing to eat?
 Chocolate muffins. Yum yum yum!
4. What's your favourite book called?
 This has to be the worst question you could ask an English graduate. I'm going to have to pick 3 (make that 5):
1. Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
2. Lanark - Alasdair Gray
3. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (yes it's a play, but I read it first) - Tennessee Williams
4. Killing Yourself to Live - Chuck Klosterman.
5. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer.
5. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
Glasgow. I'm a simple creature, I miss my home city.
6. What is your favourite beauty product and why?
 Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara.I have yet to find another mascara that works as well for me :)
7. If you could only wear eye makeup or lip products for the rest of your life which one would you 
  Eyes - I couldn't exist without mascara. Literally, I look like a ghostie without eye make-up on!
8. Whats your favourite piece of clothing and why?
At the moment, the navy cardigan I bought from Primark - you can see it in my haul post here! I wear it constantly -it's cosy and glam at the same time!
9. What's your favourite accessory and why?
The owl ring Kris gave me for Christmas. It's so pretty!

10. Which do you prefer - McDonalds or KFC?
  Neither - I'd rather go for some pub grub ta!
11. What is the one TV programme you just have to watch when it's on?

At the moment, Ripper Street. If you live outwith the UK and haven't heard of it, it's a period drama, set in 1889 around six months after the Jack the Ripper murders. It's about a team of police in Whitechapel trying to bring order to the streets after the the chaos of Jack the Ripper's reign of terror. I think it's really good, and it's just been given a 2nd series by the BBC, huzzah!!

And here are my 11 questions:

1. If you could only watch 1 film for the rest of your life, what would it be?
2. How would you celebrate your next birthday if money was no object?
3. What do you enjoy most about blogging?
4. What is your favourite shop and why?
5. What is your favourite restaurant and what's your favourite dish of theirs?
6. If you could live in any period in history, what would it be?
7. Do you have a sweet tooth, or do you prefer savoury snacks?
8. If you could use only 1 make-up item for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
9. What is your favourite animal?
10. What is your favourite photo?
11. What is your favourite blog?

I'm crap at thinking of folk to tag... so I tag everyone who reads this! Enjoy, and post the link to your answers in the comments if you do this!

Lots of love!
