Meet Elizabeth from What Lizzy Loves, Optometrist, Lifestyle Blogger and nominee in the ‘Best Lifestyle Blogger’ category of the Asquith Adores Blogger Awards.

We asked Lizzy some questions to help you get to know her a little better…

What was the inspiration behind starting your blog?

I was taking a break from my career in optometry when my children were young and I realised that I wanted to write. I have always loved style and been interested in beauty and wellbeing, so I decided to start my blog.


 What is the one thing you wish you knew when you started your blog?

I wish I’d have known how many amazing things it would lead to. I’ve made some wonderful friends, been introduced to some fabulous brands and have even travelled abroad. I’m not sure I’d have believed it at the time though!


What is the best advice you have ever been given?

Listen to, and trust your gut instinct. It is always right.


Tell us one thing that our blog readers may not know about you…

I am a registered optometrist and after an eight-year career break, I am returning to work soon. I have always been incredibly proud of this profession and I can’t wait to get back into the test room!


And finally, is there anything you would like to share with our readers?

From writing about the more challenging times in life, I have learned that so many people have a story. It might be heartache, grief, illness, something life-changing, but something perhaps not immediately apparent. This has given me a very good sense perspective and a lot of empathy. I treasure the important things in life, time with my children, my partner and my family. I count my blessings every day that I and they, are happy, healthy and loved. When it comes down to it, that’s all that truly matters.
