Cupcakes and Fringes

One of my favourite type of days today - Simon and I together for shopping food coffee around a nice place to wander - yep a day out in Windsor :)
Hence the cupcake photo.


I'm nearly ready to reveal and review my new Favourite Book. But before I do that, I need to help you with some preparation time in the dictionary.
You see the title of the book is
My Bangs Look Good and Other Lies I Tell Myself: The Tired Supergirl's Search for Truth .
The author is American - and the term "bangs" is (and I quote) "widely used in North America but is not widely recognized elsewhere."
Any ideas?  No?!
Well I want you to get past the title and into the book, so I'll let you know bangs are fringes - yes! Who knew that fringes were talked about in the US,  distinct from the rest of ones hair-do?
So, here we go: Dictionary definition time...

It originally referred to hair cut bang-off (straight across at the front), although the term is now applied to diverse forms of fringe. It is probably related to bang-tail, a term still used for the practice of cutting horses' tails straight across
Types of bangs:

Straight bangs: Bangs are combed straight down with no interference.
Blunt bangs: Bangs are cut straight across the forehead in a blunt manner.
Sideswept bangs: Hair is cut longer than normal bangs and swept across one side of the face.
Parted bangs: The bangs are parted down the middle or off center slightly
Choppy bangs: Bangs are cut uneven and choppy.
Brow-Skimming Bangs: Bangs that hit below the brow and can be look "heavy" or "light" on the face
Wispy Bangs: Short bangs that "sprinkle" over the forehead lightly"

Book Review tomorrow x

My mom used to cut my 'bangs' by putting masking tape across my forehead to help her cut them straight. Didn't always work though!! Let me know if you need any more translation support!! LOL!

As long as we don't confuse 'bangs' with one of Gok Wan's favourite expressions......'bangers'!!
Looking forward to hearing about the book, I assume it is the sequel to 'Tired Supergirls Search for Grace'?

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow Jesus...no turning back.Take a listen to this beautiful song from Hillsong - every time I hear these words and sing along it changes my perspective, turns me around, gets my focus off me and onto Jesus - "Christ Is Enough For Me". ...No turning back, I've been set free...Christ is enough for me.

Following a successful Kerith launch in the Spring, Sarah Farley and her team are ready to go again,leading their 2nd SHINE course.
SHINE is an eight week self esteem course for women. The evenings are a mixture of Talks and discussion time, with a practical approach to learning. It's a really encouraging environment, and the evenings are a lot of fun. The course starts this Tuesday evening, and there are still some spaces available.Here's your personal invite from Sarah!Shine is about to run again and I'm excited to see what God is going to do this time round. If you haven't already heard, Shine is a course designed for women who want to live their life in abundance, the way God designed them to live it. To recognise all their worth, to grow in self-esteem, to see all their strengths and positives and ultimately live a life of purpose.We've still got a few places left so if you're interested there's more information here on the Kerith website, where you can…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
