Soreen, it’s pronounced SOR-een
I like Soreen cut in slices topped with lots of butter, but did you know you can have Soreen in lots of different ways? There are some great recipes on their website and the Chocolate Soreen Flapjack is one of the best.
Using the Soreen Original malt loaf, butter, caster sugar, porridge oats, golden syrup and dark chocolate you can make your own. Just watch the video below and follow this link for the full recipe *warning, mouth watering*
I’m no beauty blogger, I’ll leave that to the professionals. I do like make up though and signed up for Glossybox. If you haven’t heard of Glossybox yet it’s a monthly beauty subscription service. Every month you will receive 5 beauty samples in a super nice box through the post!
The contents do differ from month to month. This month was all things America to celebrate 4th July. Everything inside was from an American brand and it was all wrapped nicely in a red, white and blue box. The contents were;
• Bellapierre Mineral Lipstick
• Absolute Eyeshadow Primer
• Color Club Nail Polish
• Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara
• Carmex Lip Balm
My favourite has to be the lipstick along with the American favourite, Carmex. I did my research and the contents of my box contained products totalling around £47, so totally worth it! I did find that not everyone was as lucky and their contents were not as good as mine [see their Instagram page for moaners and praisers.] I’m hoping this wasn’t a one off as it was my first one.
You can sign up for a rolling contract which is £10 a month and you can cancel any time. If you do sign up make sure you fill in the questionnaire correctly, they match the right products to your skin tone and style. Perfecto!

To cut a long story short, champagne & food.
I was lucky enough to visit Reims and sample everything G.H Mumm. Fine dining, tours of the Mumm cellars, extravagant French hosts, drivers and glass after glass of champagne. The city has a beautiful cathedral with a brilliant light show, great bars and super French restaurants. The city is just an hour outside of Paris, so if you have the chance to go it’s a must! I volunteered to try sabering a bottle of champagne and now I will never open a bottle of champagne normally again.
We also managed to squeeze two nights of karaoke into our trip, when in Reims eh
5 tips for a good nights sleep:
Camomile – Tastes a bit like flower infused dishwater but works a treat. Knocks you out and let’s you sleep though, 98% of the time all the time
Be a hero – if those neighbours are playing Avicii louder then they should it’s probably keeping other people up too. If you have the courage or the strength, go and knock on or shout ‘shut up please’ or tut loudly out of the window and hope they hear.
C ya caffeine – apparently drinking too much caffeine in the day keeps you up at night (who’d have thought ay) Try and have just one coffee in the morning to perk you up and go for a healthy snack when it comes to that afternoon slump
Stop scrolling – my friend Leanne Bond said that looking at your phone in the dark just before going to sleep makes your mind think it’s still daytime. We all have a 52 minute scroll through Twitter and Instagram before bed, we don’t want to miss anything do we! Worth a try
De stress – meditating does help. You don’t have to sit up but putting your hands on your belly, breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth is relaxing. I’ve fallen asleep doing this lots of times. Teamed with camomile it’s a KO
Good night lads
