Moustache Monday: Week 1

Mo Look No 1

Welcome to the this year’s very first ‘Moustache Monday’ – your weekly round-up of all things moustache related during the month of Movember. Here you’ll find out just how well the mo is going, including whether it looks fabulous or terrifying in addition to an update on my fundraising activities. So, how’s it going so far?

Technically it hasn’t been a full week of Movember yet but it is day 4 and I can already see the very beginnings of a mo sprouting on my top lip. I’m still at that awkward ‘haven’t shaved yet therefore I’m quite itchy’ phase and my facial foliage isn’t looking anywhere as remotely impressive as the one being sported in the above image (can you tell I had fun taking these?).

The Mo as of Day 3

In terms of donations we’re off to an impressive start and so far I’ve raised a very un-shabby £65! The collective Mo Bros in #TeamPenhaligons have raised an incredible £240 in total in just three days. Well done to all involved and many thanks for the donations received so far – they really are for a very good cause! Let’s keep up the momentum!

For daily updates and to make a donation to Movember please visit my Mo Space. All donations are welcome, even if it is just £1 and as Movember aims to raise money for men’s health charities, specifically in the areas of prostate and testicular cancer it would be going to a more than worthy cause. Don’t forget to select GiftAid if you are UK tax payer, so that the Taxman coughs up some cash too.

Finally, seeing as this is week 1 of Moustache Mondays I thought I would sign off by clarifying the official (and if one is a true gent – unbreakable) rules of Movember, they are as follows:

  1. Once registered at each Mo Bro must begin the 1st of Movember with a clean shaven face
  2. For the entire month of Movember each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache.
  3. There is to be no joining of the Mo to your sideburns. That’s considered a beard.
  4. There is to be no joining of the handlebars to your chin. That’s considered a goatee.
  5. Each Mo Bro must conduct himself like a true gentleman.
