Blog is officially moved!

Hey guys! I have been waiting for a long time to announce this, but I have officially moved my blog to a self-hosted website! O so Vogue has gone through some serious changes, including a name change! The blog will now be called World My Way.

The content of the blog will still be the same (all of the posts on O so Vogue will be on World My Way), but I  plan to post about some additional things as well. World My Way will not only be a fashion and beauty blog but will also have travel, fitness and health posts, and self-improvement posts!

I am still in the process of remodeling and changing a few more things but feel free to check out the new theme at www.worldmyway.com!

Infinity Dreams Award

A few days ago, I got nominated for the the Infinity Dreams Award by Sarah Shireen! I want to thank her for nominating me, if you want to check out her amazing blog click here!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the blog that nominated you.
  2. Answer the questions given to you by the lovely that nominated you.
  3. Nominate other bloggers and get them to answer your own questions!

My questions:

1) What is your favorite makeup look you’ve created? (add picture or link to post)

I actually haven’t posted a makeup look tutorial yet but one will be coming up so make sure to check back soon!

2) What products do you use to clean off your makeup?

Lately ive been loving the maybelline makeup remover. For info on that and other makeup removers I’ve been using lately clip here.

3) Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging so that I could have a space where I can write about anything I want, but mostly about my opinion on beauty and fashion related things. i love the blogesphere and how nice and engaging everyone is! Reading just one comment from someone that enjoyed my post always makes my day!

4) If you could only wear one of these products. Which one would you pick? Foundation, lipstick OR eyeliner. Why?

I choose foundation without a doubt! I need foundation to cover up blemishes and even up my skin tone! With only foundation I could rock the “natural face” look (which I usually do on a daily basis :))

5) Which hair shampoo would you definitely recommend and why?

I definitely recommend the Tresemme sea salt extract perfectly undone waves shampoo. It smells so good, is silicon free, and r4eeally makes your hair feel weightless.

6) What piece of advice would you give to your past self?

To worry less about results and to get out of my comfort zone.

My questions for you:

1.Why did you start blogging?

2.What are your favorite types of posts?

3.What is your favorite foundation?

4.What is the one make-up item that you can’t leave the house without?

5.Something about you that most people don’t know.

Nominations:

I would like to nominate anyone reading this right now! If you have a blog where you publish posts, you deserve this award. I think that everyone that has a blog is really deserving because we all take time out of our days to write for everyone else! So if you have a blog, I nominate YOU! I know I’ve done this before but there are so many great blogs that i can’t narrow it down to just a few of my favorite blogs!

Liebster Award (I nominate you!)

Today I have another award video, it is the Liebster Award!!! Although I do have more than 1000 followers (There is a giveaway) which is against the Liebster rules, I still got nominated by two amazing bloggers; Rosalyn and Penny. Thanks so much to both of you for the nomination, keep doing the great job!

Rules:

  • Each nominee must have under 1000 followers
  • Thank and link the nominating blog
  • Answer their 10 questions and propose 10 new ones for your nominees
  • Nominate 10 blogs and tell them they have been nominated (spread the love)
  • Write a post including all of the above and include the rules in the post

The Questions:

(Since I got nominated by two blogs, I will answer five from each)

What is your favorite season of the year?

I honestly find this question very hard to answer. I usually say winter because that is the season I’m born in and I love snow but lately, I’ve started hating it because it’s so cold! I love summer because of every aspect except for one little thing, bees! I am terrified of bees, I cannot stand them, they usually ruin a perfectly good and sunny day for me. So I guess the answer to this question would be summer (without bees)

What is your favorite drugstore beauty product?

Lately, I’ve been loving meybelline color tattoo eye shadows. They are so pigmented and come in a variety of beautiful colors!

Do you have pets?

At the moment I only have a gecko named Lizzie, but I used to have many more before. If you are interested, I talk more about these pets in my other award posts.

What is your favorite subject in school?

This may come as a surprise to some, but I love Science! I find most science subjects very interesting, I like understanding how things work and what they are made of. Although I hate physics, it bores me to death! I like biology a lot and have thought about going to med school a lot but decided not to because of the really long work hours.

What made you start blogging?

Honestly, I didn’t give it as much thought as some other bloggers. One of my friends was showing me her blog on tumblr and I thought it was cool, so I decided to give it a try as well! I ended up loving the blogisphere and positive community and people so I kept posting.

 Where is one place that you would definitely love to travel to in the world?

I’ve been to many places around the world but strangely enough I’ve never been to Paris. Since I’ve been learning french for over 4 years now, I would love to go to advance my speaking skills and see the charm of Paris for myself.

 What is your biggest fear?

Other than getting kidnapped and tortured… I think one of my great fears is the fear to not succeed. I lost many opportunities because I wasn’t sure of myself. Which is why now I try to push myself to try new things and seize any opportunity.

Do you have any secret talents? 

Honestly, no. I’m sad to admit but I don’t have any secret talents unless being double jointed and being able to do weird things with my arms counts…

 Describe your blog in three words.

Creative, Helpful, and New.

 Name two goals that you have for this year. 
One thing that I have been telling myself to do the past few years and hopefully will finally do this year, is to get fit and start running! I’m sure I’m not the only one that has this goal 😉 My second goal is to really up my photography game. I’m going to take some classes to hopefully learn how to take better pictures for the blog.

My Questions:

What made you start blogging?

What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?

How long have you been blogging for?

If you were stuck on an Island, what is the one thing you would take with you?

Do you have any pets?

What is one thing that most people are surprised to learn about you?

If you had one wish, what would it be?

Do you own more high-end or drugstore make-up?

What is your favorite nail polish brand?

What is your biggest achievement (at the moment)?

My Nominations:

I started searching and writing down blogs in this section but I realized that there were too many blogs I thought deserved this award. If you have a blog and have taken the time to write even one post, you deserve this award so I nominate YOU!

Thanks for reading, I look forward to reading your answers to my questions. If you do this post, please comment the link on this post so that I can check it out!

Creative Blogger Award

creative blogger

Hey guys, are you having a great Easter Monday? I’m spending mine renovating my house, what a relaxing way to spend Easter Monday, isn’t it? As you can probably tell, today’s post is about The Creative Blogger Award! I was nominated by Ryane, who is a really awesome and informative blog about all things beauty! I strongly recommend you check out her blog, it has so many interesting like ootd’s, motd’s, wishlists, tags, and more! Thanks again for nominating me, I love reading your posts, keep doing the great job!

 

The rules of the award are:

  • Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify them via their social media/blogs
  • Thank and post the link of the person who nominated you
  • Share 5 facts about yourself to your readers
  • Pass on the rules

Facts:

1.When I was vacationing in Greece a few years ago, my family and I got robbed while we were there. They came into our room while we were sleeping and snatched my moms purse. Not only did they get most of our money, but our passports too. Forcing us to travel around Greece (with hardly any money) to get to the Canadian Embassy. But not to worry it all worked out for the best! If you want to read more about that experience you can click here.

2. For three years I had my own jewelry business where I made earrings, bracelets, and necklaces and sold them at a variety of craft sales. Unfortunately, my creative spark for jewelry faded and I have stopped creating new items (although I still have quite a few items that I haven’t sold).

3. I’ve owned over 30 animals. Oddly enough, I’ve never had the “usual house pet” i.e. dogs or cats because I always lived with someone that was either allergic or didn’t want one. I did however have two lizards, a gecko, three frogs, and around 30 fish. Currently, I only have a gecko, and guess what his name is? Lizzie!

4. When people first see me they think that I’m Latino, lot’s of people think I’m Spanish but most think I’m Mexican. Some people have also thought I was Asian (Indian, mostly), when in fact I’m Serbian. Serbia is a small European country, where not to offend anyone but the people there are really white! Both of my parents are Serbian and my mom is as pale as people come but somehow I ended up with dark brown hair and eyes, and yellowish brown (it’s hard to describe my color, lol) skin! It’s funny how genetics work. I often get called, “authentic or exotic.” Some people wonder why I’m not offended by always being called different things but honestly I like it! I’m not sure why but it makes me feel special and different from everyone else (which I guess I am).

5. Since the last fact was really long I’ll make this one short, and frankly I’ve run out of interesting facts. So the last fact about me is that writing a book is on my bucket-list. I have a few ideas about what but nothing concrete, and I don’t know when I’ll find the time to start writing it, but I hope I’ll manage!
