Original Rev, original.


Nine West – three compartments and iconic crossbody. I am having a mixed metals moment and enjoy the detailing on the bag which accentuates any outfit.

L’Occitane En Provence Crema de Manos Pivoine Flora – I received this in the 2017 Advent Calendar and I have fallen in love with all the hand creams from this brand. It’s velvety, smells delightful and I do appreciate that the brand keeps the packaging design regardless of the sample size.

Earphones – Random pair found around the house.

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb – I never thought that I would ever fall in love with lipgloss again. Sure, it was trendy when I was 12 but practically it’s a nightmare. Sticking to my hair, transferring everywhere and still I can’t seem to part with the Gloss Bomb. It’s such a universal shade and it really amps up a dull day.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Catching Feels – slightly more brick red on me as it dries down than it’s mauve appearance. I’ve been using more subtle colours and this has me out of my comfort zone.

Notebook and Parker Pen – the pen was a gift and the book another unnecessary buy. I have curbed my impulse buys, but I have a number of empty notebooks that do deserve better.

Forever New Wallet – falling apart and bought a year or two ago. I can’t seem to find the right fit which is why I’m hanging onto this one. It’s seen better days, a flailing legend.

Prada reading glasses – I have had this pair for a few years now and its one of my favourite items I own. It’s chic, the ever so light cat-eye and frames my face beautifully. I use this more as an accessory piece than reading glasses, which will need to change on the account of straining eyes as I get older.

L’Occitane En Provence Eau De Toilette – Also from the 2017 Advent Calendar, it’s a floral scent that a few spicy notes which is a change for me. I prefer earthier smells, woodier. I’m terrible at explaining scents.

Watch – a gift, obviously, I don’t keep it in my handbag. It was just for visual purposes.
