Describe a typical or ideal day in your life?
I guess you could call me layback Lizzy as I firstly drink coffee which is brought to me in bed. I then get ready for the day and most days I work on everything fragrance from reviewing new launches both male and female, on occasions skincare and makeup. I spend time researching my subject and also love creating fragrance images to post on my platforms.
