Should I buy a Thermomix?

This is a question that can only be answered by you when you make an informed choice. Here is some food for thought.

Would you like an appliance that will chop, mince, beat, knead, whip, weigh, emulsify, steam, crush, grate, stir, saute, stew, braise, mince or mill?

Then you can give away all the other kitchen appliances taking up room in the cupboards.

Would you like to be guided in your cooking and then set and forget till times up so you can do other chores or sit on the couch while the TM6 cooks for you?

What could you do when you have a spare set of hands cooking for you in the kitchen?

Would you like to cook from scratch and avoid the nasty additives in processed food?

Your body and skin will love you for doing this! Not to mention your families health!

Would you like the option of having a Yogurt Maker, Slow Cooker, Sous Vide or a Rice Cooker?

These appliances take up a lot of room in the kitchen but no more with a Thermomix.

These are just some of the benefits. There are many more! The best thing is to at least judge after you’ve seen the Thermomix in action. Try by giving 50 mins of your time. You can’t taste the food online but you can observe and ask questions.

Or maybe you already know you want one! So whats next?

How to work from home with a online business

So many people these days are looking for the alternative to the Nine to Five type work. Here you are one of those people searching for the answer.

This question though of how to work from home with a online business? Really should be answered by those without bias or personal motive. Now, unfortunately for you the reader, this just isn’t going to happen.

To be fair I must disclose my motive for writing this blog. I want to work from home with a online business. I hope you will read my blog and say to yourself, “yep! she knows what she’s talking about and I think its the truth”. So here is my story and its the truth but have a read and you decide?

Firstly if this heading sounds a bit strange (i.e. it should say an online business) I want you to understand a key factor in what has brought you here today. You the searcher and reader of all things Google, Bing or Yahoo have typed this into your search engine. And I, the person who is working from home with my online business. Well, I have learned how to search for the key phrases like the one you just typed in. Now you may ask! How did I find out about this online stuff? Well let me tell you my story.

How to work from home with a website – My Story

A few years back I broke my foot and was forced to stay at home for 6 weeks while I recovered. Subsequently I had time on my hands and thought now would be a good time for me to learn something new. So began the journey of trying to find the best job to do while working from home. I was over getting up at the crack of dawn and rushing around trying to get to work on time. And for that matter having to drive so dam far every day.

Long story short in the end I paid $11,000 to a company that had ‘ready made’ online stores for sale. It came with the promise of, ‘We’ll teach you everything you need to know about how to make money online by running a website store’! Did they deliver the goods? Yes, mostly they did. But I was left wanting. Why? I realised this company focused on teaching its clients about Facebook advertising. Now don’t get me wrong Facebook works for some but I found it very expensive and unless you’ve got a masters in marketing, it feels like you are pushing a heavy load up a hill.

The sad thing for me was, they didn’t teach me anything about Search Engine Optimization. Remember we discussed this topic at the start? Well let me tell you that was a very big short fall in their education. I had to learn the hard way. I bought Yoast. This is a very good program that plugs into your website. It tells you how your going with your optimizing. So I became the owner of a very busy store called Budget Furniture Online. That is my first attempt at working on a website from home.

Just recently I became aware that I needed to build another website. Not the type to get bitten twice. I started searching for another way to build one. In my search I found a company claiming to teach you quite a few things. Aspects of online marketing that I know I still needed to learn. So here is what they claim.

Firstly how to build your very own website in minutes.

As well as teaching you how to write informative blogs.

But most of all it was the how to be an expert at optimization.

Now that got my attention! Well after my last experience I just had to take a look this company.

Is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?

They definitely delivered what they promised me. You’re now on my new website that I’ve build from scratch. Is what they promise all you need? As a person starting out. I thinks so! If you are lost in the training. Then the community that this platform provides will give you the answers if you are not able to find it in the training yourself. Plus you just search the training and you will find the answers. I’ve had to do that a few times. Also you will have access to technical support and your sponsor.

Now you’re probably thinking. But I had previous experience so it would be easy for me to build a site from scratch. Not so! and here’s why.

Short steps to working from home.

Remember my first site I bought was already made. I just had to add products and learn about word press. So this time I decided to put my “I don’t know anything” hat back on and learn all over again just so I could really hone my skills. And this is what I found.

  • Does Wealthy Affiliate teach you how to build a site in minutes? Yes, you will have a site in minutes but it won’t be a working site yet.
  • Will you learn to write blogs? Yes but it won’t make you a great writer. This is your responsibility not theirs.
  • Will you learn how to optimize your new website? Yes, but you must write blogs regularly. Then you will also know how to find the best key words to focus on.

I’m happy to say if you give it the time. It won’t take long and you will be writing and optimizing. That’s when you will start to get visitors to your new website. You know, the one you are passionate about.

So do you still want to learn how to work form home with a laptop?

Don’t be fooled by the pictures of people sitting on beaches supposedly working away. It could be you one day but by then you probably should flick the laptop and enjoy the holiday. Yes, its important to realise that working from home is exactly that. Work! Is it fun? I love it and I’m getting better at it every day. You can too.

Click on my Wealthy Affiliate link and check it out for yourself. It costs as little as: Free or up to about $35 a month. Once I was sure this company filled my needs I paid for a year up front which works out to be $29.00 a month. A bargain compared to $11,000 plus plus that I had to spend to get my first website up and running. That $29.00 includes hosting your website and enough plug ins (programs) to get you up and running with all the self paced education and technical support.

Do yourself a favor. Follow these very simple steps if you want to work at home and have success.

1. Find what you’re passionate about! You will be writing heaps so you need to enjoy it.

2. Start with a free month of Wealthy Affiliate. A month is long enough to know if you will be disciplined enough to stick with it and learn.

3. Now decide! Ask yourself this is question! Am I ready to commit to learning in order to be able to work from home with a job I have made for myself?

This won’t work if you think its about lounging around beside the pool clicking on an order or two. You must be prepared to give it your time and energy in order to achieve success.

I wish you well with your endeavors. If you decide to go with Wealthy Affiliate I will be your sponsor. That means I get to be the first person you meet on the platform.

Wrinkle Free Natural Moisturiser

Want to try something that is as clean as can be. If you are slapping on the moisturiser at least 3 times a day as I recommend then choosing a cream that has no additives is a wise move to help reduce toxic load.

Here is a simple and effective recipe to save you money and keep the nasty additives at bay.

Lou Lou Skin DIY Moisturiser

  1. Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup shea butter (4 oz)
  2. 2 TB nourishing oil such as: jojoba, avocado, apricot, sweet almond oil, or grapeseed oil.
  3. 10 drops lavender essential oil
  4. 5 drops rosemary essential oil
  5. 3 drops Frankinsense essential oil
  6. 3 drops tea tree essential oil (clarifying)

Do some research if you like on what essential oils work for skin care. Frankincense and Lavender are the most popular. They are called the King and the Queen of essential oils. You could add these other oils.

Helichrysum (nourishing), or Carrot Seed (sun protection). Make sure the total amount of Essential oils added to the mixture is no more than 25-30 drops.


  1. In a double boiler (a glass bowl over a pot filled 1/4 the way full with water), over medium-low heat, melt the Shea butter. Add in the nourishing skin oil. Turn off the heat. (I use my Thermomix for this process because it heats and stirs at the same time).
  2. Pour into a bowl (I use my Thermomix bowl so I just take it off and put it straight into the fridge). Place in the fridge or freezer and allow to cool and become a solid (not hard) form. This takes around 15-20 minutes
  3. Once it has become opaque and slightly firm, take your bowl out of the freezer. Now add in the essential oils you have chosen. Using the whisk attachment on your mixer or Thermomix at a slower speed. You can also use a whisk with fork versus a mixer. This takes just just a few seconds. Don’t over-whip.
  4. Scoop into a jar and store at room temp. Apply generously to both body and face as desired. 

Skin Care for Everyone

No matter who you are! Male or Female, young or middle age by following a few simple steps each day and investing in great products you will look better. When we are young its easy to think you have time to change things if you start to get wrinkles. By then, it is really too late.

Looking after your skin when you are young will reward you when you are over 50.

When should you start?

If you’ve read the ‘about me page’ you will know by now that I started caring for my skin when I was quite young. Like 11 or 12. I personally think it was a good thing. I created life long habits of caring for my skin. For example no matter how tired I feel if I’ve gone out I always take my makeup off and use either my night mask or I moisturize in some way before retiring. Cleaning and moisturising your face at bedtime is like brushing your teeth before you go to bed. So to you Mum’s and Dad’s out there. Consider investing in some products that are relatively clean or think about making your own like I’ve explained in the DIY post. Help your kids now! to start the routine of caring for their skin. Especially if you have girls that want to start wearing make up early.

But what about you?

It’s not too late! Technology can help!

If you feel it is too late for you now and you have already aged perhaps your skin is a little tired, don’t despair! Today’s technology is here to help and it will definitely make you look younger. I mainly use two brands to support my skin care. I find them both highly effective and see a noticeable difference between my skin and those that do not care for their skin. Neora is a high tech skin care company that has invested millions into research and development. Their products are aimed at helping those who have aged to turn back the clock. I’ve seen the transformation on friends who have used it and it is quite amazing the difference in less than a week.

The changes will be dramatic!

Sometime back I encouraged my sister to use Neora night cream. She lives lives along way from me so I didn’t see the change happening slowly. About two months after she started using it we met up again. I was shocked at the difference it had made to her skin! Her face looked hydrated and much tighter. It is imperative if you begin using this product to take a before and after photo’s. Then every couple of weeks take another shot and compare. It’s a lot of fun and keeps you motivated to invest in yourself. It is so cool to be able to look back and then realize how  your skin is changing and the way you now look. However, if you are still young and have no wrinkles or sagging skin I recommend caring for you skin in a different way.

Nature at its best. Ancient Wisdom!

do Terra is a natural alternative to skin care. They have created a skin care range based on Essential oils that realistically have been around for thousands of years. Oils like Frankincense and Lavender are my favorites. do Terra have moisturisers, cleansers, night creams and days creams. I use the invigorating scrub in the shower and Salubelle oil every day in my skin care regime. Essential oils have so many uses around your home. My focus on this site is to promote skin care. If you are looking for natural daily products do Terra is an awesome option. Read about Salubelle here and how it will support your skin. I know some of you will be wanting to have the cleanest products you can to put on your skin. By clean, I mean without additives. Well besides the fact you can put cucumber on your eyes as a soothing routine and use sugar as a scrub! I recommend going down the DIY path. It’s the only way you can truly trust that the products you are using do not have additives.

Where to from here!

Whatever skin products you prefer to use. The key ingredient is love. Self love will motivate you to care for the largest organ you have and that is your skin. So….

Don’t skimp on your skin!!!!!

Great Skin – Over 50 needs to be earned!

Lou Lou Skin
Picture of Lou Lou

It’s rare that anyone who doesn’t look after their skin will have good skin after this age.  All is not lost though if your skin is looking a little tired.  With today’s technology you can turn back the clock on your skin by using a few products that are very effective.

So what are The Best Skin Care Products – Over 50’s women and men?

I’ve been using age defying products now for the last few years and can’t believe the difference when I look back at photo’s prior to using night masks and oils.

Skin care needs to be a very simple regime! 

Why because most of us won’t or can’t spend a lot of time applying lots of products. I use only a few products in my skin care regime.

Just a few simple steps to glowing, smooth skin.

  1. I scrub my face every couple of days in the shower with an  Invigorating scrub this product can be used all over your body if you wish.
  2. I use a night cream (which is like a mask) at night and it does an amazing job on my skin while I sleep. This product is the most effective cream I have ever used.  
  3. In the morning after I wash off the mask I use Salubelle oil and then Neora Age IQ day moisturizer after the oil has soaked in about 10 minutes later.
  4. If I wear makeup or sometimes in winter if I find my skin is less hydrated I skip the scrub and use  AGE IQ  moisturising cleanser.

That’s all!

Its a simple to follow routine using as natural as can be using effective products.

Not sure where to start.

If I had to choose one thing to begin with it would be Neora AGE IQ night cream (mask))

 Neora Night Cream is highly recomended I’ve been using it for over 2 years now and my skin has never looked as good as this since age 40.

Do you want to try the Best Skin Care product for over 50’s?


If we go to the trouble of spending time and money on looking good then we need to find products that actually work.  There are so many snake oils out there that claim they work. But other than making your skin look more hydrated they do nothing else.

I began using Neora or Nerium as it was called back then in 2017.  Introduced to me by a friend as I needed a passion.  I was stunned at the changes in my skin.  I used it for around 12 months and then I stopped. Since then another friend had some of the night cream left over as she found she was a bit too lazy at night to use it.  I bought it off her and began using this product again.  2nd time round I’m still amazed at the difference in my skin.  I’ll not stop again and I’m so excited this time I’m shouting it from the roof tops. You have nothing to loose by trying it as Neora offer a full 30 day money back guarantee.

Neora has scientific laboratories where they have tried and tested their products.  There are a number of registered ingredients in each product that actually work.

Here is what they say!



SAL-14 is a botanical blend featuring the antioxidants bidens pilosa and mauritia flexuosa fruit oil to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to help the skin appear firmer and more youthful. Bidens pilosa is an herbaceous plant found in South America that has been shown to have effects similar to retinol products, but without irritating the skin.


Found in IllumaBoost® Brightening & Shield, PhytoLumina is a proprietary blend of the plant bioactives alpinia o icinarum root extract, physalis pubescens fruit juice and bidens pilosa, which helps skin look radiant and brighter.


A proprietary blend that mimics your skin’s natural barrier to form a clear shield that blocks out blue rays and environmental stressors.


Developed by Princeton University Professor Dr. Jeffry Stock, this patented, age-fighting ingredient includes an organic phytol compound that acts as a super antioxidant and skin protectant, mimicking and boosting the skin’s natural age-fighting mechanism.


This exclusive ingredient, derived from white lily and Brazilian ginseng, reduce the appearance of puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area.


Developed by Princeton University Professor Dr. Jeffry Stock, this patent-pending ingredient reduces the signs of ageing around the eye, keeping skin supple and smooth.

Neora offer a 30 day money back guarantee if you’re not seeing the results you want.

My Skin Care Journey

How it began

Growing up I was the youngest of 4 children and my only sister was 10 years older than me.  Of course this meant everything she was doing in her teens had a huge impact on me as a child.  So when she used skin care products and makeup like all girls her age did, I pretty much thought,’ this is for me too’! Thus by around 11 or 12 years old I had begun using cleansers, astringents (toners were called that back then) and moisturizers.  Did I need to? Of course not but the best thing about all this was I began life long habits that certainly impacted how I cared for my skin for the rest of my life.

When Should you start caring for your skin

I can’t remember the exact age but long before the internet I read about these beautiful natural products in a girls magazine.  You might remember the one we all read back then in Australia ‘Dolly Magazine’.  Yeah, it was every girls favourite. The products were Yve Rocher.  Do you remember them? Don’t forget because they are still with us today. Now that’s saying something.  As I was creating this site I felt it appropriate to give them another go.  I love what I use now but to be fair not everyone will want/or can spend  on their skin. So I thought I might give them a whirl and see what they are like by today’s standards.  I must admit I was pleasantly surprised when the box showed up.  These products are still lovely especially for the price tag.

My kids have grown up but I will encourage my grand daughter when the time comes to begin caring for her skin before she is a teenager.  She already wears her Mums makeup.  So I think this box of goodies I’ve just bought from Yves Rocher will be just the thing for when she is old enough to begin a skin care routine.

Skin care for over 50’s is more than skin deep

Between then (when I was 12 years old) and now I have tried so many different products ranging from inexpensive ones which are pretty much just Sorbolene to really expensive products from the David Jones skin care department.  There have been a few lovely ones but the nothing compares to the results I have seen by using Neora products.  My skin is smoother, there is less pigmentation and the reduction of wrinkles and sagging is astounding.  To top it off there is no injecting and its simple to use. Of course this is not just about products as you know. Caring for your skin requires good diet, exercise, loosing extra pounds and a healthy mind and body.

My Story

Lou Lou Skin is not just about skin.  Its the whole gambit on this journey of wellness and self discovery.  Most of us are interested in better health so we are searching for information on how to stay healthy, look good and feel great.  I  know I’m not alone. Why? Pick up a regular magazine, what’s it all about?  Wellness, Skin Care, caring for your body and your mind. This site addresses those issues focusing on Essential Oils as a natural alternative to chemical laden creams and medicines.

Skin Care for everyone made easy

I’ve been caring for my skin ever since I was a young teenager in fact I remember buying Yves Rocher products from a magazine and feeling so excited when the box of goodies arrived. So began my love of looking after my skin.  Its funny that it took till I was in my 50’s for me to realise this is my true passion.  Its the one thing in my life that I have consistently maintained and invested in. 
There are seven layers to your skin so we can definitely make a difference to how it looks by caring for it. But the truth is, if putting products on your skin is all you do it’s like only taking half your medication when you’re sick.  Healthy on the inside is even more important.  Not to mention your state of mind that needs to be cared for as well.  So having said that skin care is my passion so too is general health, mindful well being and controlling my weight. These ever present issues have become top priority for me too because of the huge impact they have had on my life.

Looking young and feeling great.

Its no secret that many of us battle with the same issues. We all want to look forever young but gravity takes over, aging creates changes in our bodies and we begin to really notice things we don’t like about ourselves. We notice the negative things and this creates a cycle that can get out of control. The self hate cycle, you know the one where you catch yourself thinking I’m just getting old.  Given that most of us are battling these negatives some of the topics I write about are:

Drying dull skin,

The dreaded Wrinkles,

Internal and external Stress,

Menopause and its debilitating symptoms.


Work issues – The 9 to 5 Slog and how you can get out of it.

Flipping those concerns on their back and taking control in your life can and  will make a huge difference to how you look and your confidence.  Easier said than done I’m hearing you say. Consistency is the key.  Not becoming obsessive . Investing your time, money and energy into what is important to you.

Around Our Website

Essential Oils

I’ve experimented with Essential Oils for mindfulness and well being.  Essential Oils are also helping me to reduce the toxic load on my system by minimizing the amount of chemical exposure. I use them to clean my house and my body. But even more importantly they lift my spirits and enable me to focus. The science behind why Essential Oils work is very interesting and its not some new fan-dangle idea.  People have been using oils like Lavender, Frankincense, Myrrh and many other oils for centuries even thousands of years.  So my thoughts to begin with were ‘why not find out why’, they seem to work! I have been pleasantly surprised. They have now become such an intrinsic part of my life I wonder how I lived without them.

Skin Care

We focus on the best skin care for women over 50s but the products and information is for everyone.  Finding products that actually make a difference in your life is time consuming and expensive.  There are so many out there its hard to know which ones to choose.  So I’ve gathered together in one place the products I use to help maintain my skin.  Check out the before and after photo’s. I’ve had to be brave it up and put out my not so best times just so you can compare.

Exercise and stretching

I’ve been walking my way into healthy habits for years. My daily routine includes a 30 min walk on my local beach with the dogs. Its such an awesome way to begin the day. Sorry to say though. It’s not enough so I’m creating daily Exercise habits for flexibility and strength by using a Yoga app and incorporating some Yoga into my routine.


A healthy mind shows on your face.  I know this because recently I went through hard times at work. I’ve done quite a bit of soul searching in my down times and found once I picked myself up (with help) and got back onto the horse so to speak I started getting complements on how I look again.

This has lead me to realise I need to incorporate mind health into my regime. So once again with the aid of an app I’m implementing the  practice of Meditation to enable me to focus on what is important in my life and ultimately reducing my stress. Meditation is not the emptying of your mind like I was taught to believe. Rather its the control of your mind.  Keeping your mind in the present. Not allowing it to wander off on its own little tangent. Just ten minutes a day and you’ll find its an amazing way to improve your mind health and  increase your ability to achieve your dreams.


Trust is a magical word and while on the internet no doubt you’ve noticed you can’t trust that the site you are on really cares about your experience as a customer.

I use the products that I promote so you can trust that this site is not just any old website selling whatever people find cheap or trendy. I believe in my choices and feel its only fair to share the secrets.

I’m currently 58 and most people say I don’t look my age. I have all the ailments everyone else does.  I wear Glasses and even Hearing Aids, I suffer from Arthritis and have had Back issues recently that have changed my life and how I have to work permanently.

Even though I’m now allowing my natural grey hair to shine through being a grandmother and choosing to embrace grey hair does not make me an old granny. Its the consistent habits of caring for my skin and body and what’s on the inside that shows through and keeps me looking young.
