Abornewords Beauty: My Experience With Vita Liberata Body Blur

September 10, 2018

While there are may products I have yet to share with Abornewords Readers, right now I am pleased to be buzzing about Vita Liberata Body Blur. I received a full size product in Latte Dark as a Poshly Prize. Love those opportunities! It came in the usual white package, sealed secure and everything. However, when I opened it, the tube felt like I had already shared it with my Sister. It was squeezable and did not seem full. Still I was eager to try it but realized pretty quickly, the applicator included with my Body Blur was to large to be useful on the tic tac toe scars on my legs and arms. First I thought Q-tip. Then I realized the wooden sticks I had laying around from the incense I burn in my room for aroma therapy would work for applying Body Blur to my tiny dotted scars. The mocha or maybe a darker shade would have been better for me because my spots become really dark once I heal because I pick them off a few times before I heal for good. Nervous habit but oh well. Applying Body Blur to every scar I have is something I will not do everyday because it adds at least another 30 minutes to my Beauty Routine. I have to work everyday and it would not be practical for me since my makeup routine is 5-15 minutes most days. I keep it very simple and that works for me. As long as my scars are not open, the spots are just something that happens after healing so what!. Then, I still have the option to smooth out my look by buying pantyhose. Now, I do appreciate being able to blur the dark spots. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to try this new product. Yet, I also feel blessed to be able to use my limbs everyday for exercise and other activities of daily living.

Leah Vernon is so animated in this beauty tutorial video.

Being consistent is something that Leah Vernon does best. Working online requires consistency and it is easy to fall off as life happens. Let's face it sometimes we get busy, finances change and our ability to keep up with our agenda does not always happen like we plan. What I appreciate is, Leah's ability to drive her body positive message home in all that she does. Even when she has her bad days, she owns it and keeps pushing. Somet...

September 1, 2018


Aretha Franklin: To Talk About The Dead and The Freeway Of Love Song To talk about the dead is not something I make habit of doing on Abornewords. However, losing Aretha Franklin has called me to the table for a Rest In Peace nod, like no other, all glamoured up in words. Some time ago, I attended a Mary Kay Event and before getting mini makeovers, attendees were warmed up to the sounds of Aretha Franklin singing Pink Cadillac. We enjoyed ourselves and did our two steps and a few other moves...

Poshly Prize

Dry Lips Suck! That's why when I discovered the Hydrating Lip Gel Patches from Patchology, I knew I would make them a part of my regular #BeautyRoutine. Spalike quality is how I would describe them. Except, the added benefit is, you can do this yourself while relaxing in your bed, watching a movie. I did it while watching the movie entitled Big Miracle starring Drew Barrymore. While she was going gaga over 3 whales who were trapped under ice glaciers and leading rescue efforts, I...

I jumped at the chance to try Vita Liberata advanced organics. Vita Liberata invisi is a foaming tanning water.

I used my bare hand to apply it to start so I could see if my finger...

Abornewords Beauty: Beauty Is LandWhale Deep According To Jes Baker

May 20, 2018


When it comes to interacting with clients there is no one way to achieve success since seeing everyone as an individual is always best, even when there are commonalities. Before you begin I will say it is just as much about what you do as it is about how you feel, meaning your attitude will likely set the tone for what will happen next and throughout your interaction, even if it is not interacting face to face so be mindful of how you are feeling before you begin to pitch or close the sale an...
