Happy Movember my Mo-Sistas & Mo-Bros! Yes, it’s that time of year when men throw caution to the wind and decide to grow (sometimes) stylish facial hair for a fantastic cause…even if they end up looking like Hulk Hogan, Tom Selleck, Poirot or simply, an evil cartoon overlord.
Whilst there were some interesting suggestions from my male friends on how I can show my support for this fantastic cause (throughout the month, funds and awareness are raised for men’s health, specifically for Prostate Cancer): I’m sorry but I’m not going to stop shaving legs/pits etc for a month – that, is simply not. going. to. happen. However, I do want to show my support; therefore in addition to sponsoring numerous male members of my social circle as they attempt to grow a ‘stache: I have chosen a far more female/fashion-appropriate way to show my support.
I have two awesomely hipster/Urban Outfitters-esque “Mustache” rings (one purchased; one DIYed) that I intend on wearing for the entire month. Yes that’s right – no matter what the occasion, what I’m wearing, where I’m going – these rings are coming with me!
Now, I know that by simply wearing these rings; it’s not exactly “make or break” for Movember as a charity event, but if I can in some small way keep up the awareness (whilst looking super cool – obviously!) then how can I resist?!
For my fellow HK Mo-Sistas & Mo-Bros, if you haven’t already, please visit MovemberHK; like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter to see how you can support this great event. Let’s help make Hong Kong’s first official Movember one to remember!
