Survey and Kreativ Blogger Award!

Okay despite only one person filling out my reader survey so far, I'm still going to fill it out to let you guys know a bit more about me :)  Feel free to fill it out still if you want to, I'm curious to know about you guys!
Elemental Styles Reader Survey
Name: Whitney
Age: 23...I guess my profile says 24, I'll be 24 in September lol I like to round up
What is your favorite nail polish brand (and color if you want)?: I love CG 108 degrees after trying it last night, but I think my favorite of all time is Zoya Kimmy.  I don't really have a favorite brand, maybe ORLY!
What is your favorite make-up brand?: Bare Minerals...oh my gosh, I love it.
What is one product you can't live without?: Mascara.  I rarely leave the house without it. 
Are you in school? Tell me about your educational background: I am!  I got my B.S. last year in chemical engineering and I will be graduating in June with my M.S. in engineering.
What's your favorite food and drink?: Food is probably pepperoni and pineapple pizza but I also LOVE ice cream sandwiches, oh my gosh.  Drink? Currently Hawaiian Punch :)
What do you like to do in your spare time, (besides nail polish and make up)?: Well school takes up most of my time, actually, but I like reading, making purses, and line dancing.  I like being outdoors a lot, too, my bf and I like to kayak and such.  I also enjoy baking.
One interesting fact about you: I'm getting my MS in 4 quarters, I'm pretty proud of that!

Alsoooo I got tagged by Fiona at Ha Bisky! Nails for the Kreativ Blogger Award!  Thanks girl!!
I guess I'm supposed to give you 10 facts about me and tag 10 bloggers with under 300 followers!

1) I live with my boyfriend, Matt.  He's a chef but he's currently working with adults with mental disabilities.  I love him and I'm glad he's around to support me :)
For a NYE party...I think this was NYE 2009 right after we started dating

2) I like to go to the driving range...I've probably been more than 25 times, but I'm still too scared to go play actual golf.

3) I have the shiest-iest car on the's a 2001 Ford Focus that I got (and helped pay for) for my HS graduation.  I'm surprised it hasn't blown up yet.  It's terrible.  I'm waiting a few more months until I get a job to buy a new one, SO excited!

4) I used to only paint my nails when I was in a terribly bad mood to help me perk up.  Now I love painting them because I can do it pretty quickly and it makes me happy to look at.

5) I LOVE themed parties.  I have had a New Years Eve party every year since 2002 and a lot of them have been themed.  Last year it was 1940's theme.  I've also had a formal one, Vegas themed, movie themed, etc...
Movie themed...I went as Hermione haha.  Because I love Harry Potter

Napoleon Dynamite and Indiana Jones helping clean up
6) I like to sew and got in the groove of making my own purses last year.  I've been a little busy with school these past few quarters but I plan to get back into it when I am done.  
An owl purse I made for my aunt.  I like owls.  A lot.  And pigs.
In addition to purses, I decided to try my hand at making a pirate outfit for Halloween last year.  I like how it turned out:

I like it better without leggings, but it was cold that day.
7) Gosh I'm only at 7?  I desperately want a micropig as a pet.  I love them.  They are so freakin' cute.   Seriously check out this video.  You will want one.  They are smarter than dogs.  I'm going to get one after I get a new car.  'Cause they're expensive.

8) My favorite movie of all time is O Brother, Where Art Thou?  I could watch it everyday.  I don't know why.

9) I have five weddings to go to this year, and I'm in two of them.  I'm going to go broke from this.  But I had a blast being MOH in my friend Jenn's wedding last year.

Oh how I miss being tan.

10) I can't stand ignorant people.  Mainly people who make arguments without knowing what they're talking about.  I respectfully decline getting into discussions with people if I'm not 100% sure of my facts and expect people to do the same.
