The other day we had an amazing box of goodies sent ……. Soreen you remember the yummy chewy loaf which is a devil to cut and is lovely just buttered or toasted – it always makes me think of my Nana Queenie and having it on Saturday afternoons while watching the wrestling on TV with her for a very glamorous woman (she always wore peep toe sling backs regardless of the weather) she loved her wrestling.
My Nana Queenie in black & white check at her best mates wedding …….
For some reason I had forgotten how comforting it is due to the taste and the unique texture –Soreen have updated and expanded the range and they sent the loaf but also some mini loaves with a banana mixture – they are called lunch box loaves and perfect for having as a snack – the whole range has expanded, they even do a sliced loaf plus cinnamon and raisin – I’m back hooked on Soreen again.
Besides my forage in Debenhams this week I have also been online shopping and found L ‘Wren Scott dresses – years ago I saw her clothes in Dover Street Market and liked them but thought they were not really practical just aesthetically beautiful and loved her collaboration’s etc but these dresses at Matches are stunning and very wearable plus classic – I love the long lean shape – I’m also a sucker for bright’s especially turquoise and I found some fabulous turquoise coloured pieces plus a handbag which so reminds me of Nana Queenie ……..
