Hello! I'm Elizabeth

I live in a small Australian country town with the power of buying all the things online and a skincare obsession no one else cares two figs for. I'm writing love letters and (hopefully) constructive criticism to the goo I put on my face, the stuff I spend money on, and the things I give my time to.
