I’m actually not intending to be a blogger as I start this…it’s just a way for me to get information to customers on a page that's not going to disappear. And - maybe also a way to tell you gals about some random cool stuff sometimes.
I know what you’re thinking…..that makes me a blogger (‘umm doesn't she get that?!). Maybe it does – you’re right. So let’s just say I’m not aiming to be a traditional beauty blogger; you won’t see beautiful pictures of me on every post (am I beautiful? Depends….first thing in the morning – hell no; like not remotely close. With a bit of makeup and my crazy hair tamed– I can look good).
Not that I have a problem with all the young beauty bloggers - some of them are fantastic, but I’m currently pushing 50 years old (or young!) in a few years and not in the least interested in self-promotion - just looking to share some insights from time to time.
I’ve owned Lilou Organics since 2005 – when I started it was truly a niche business. I guess you can say I’m one of the pioneer on-line stores in Canada but now there are many options (some great ones and some not so much); regardless - I’m just glad that healthier options are now mainstream and since that was the goal all along I figure the more the merrier.
Years ago I did have a really lovely physical store as well – we closed it once the lease was up since online was a better fit for my life. However, when I had the shop customers were always asking me for advice on all things natural – from skin care to eating to supplements and much more. It’s my thing; I know a fair bit about all things healthy. Since closing that shop, I miss the customer connections and I’ve had many tell me they miss my insights and info too.
So this blog (that’s not really a blog) is just going to be my way of giving you info about stuff I think might interest you. I’m not going to be trying to sell you lots of things ….just trying to do my part to educate and inspire (did I mention I was a high school teacher for ten years? It’s just kind of in me….).
