It’s Mustache Season!

After a few months of pleading, I finally convinced my boyfriend, Walter, to grow a mustache for the The Movember Foundation, or, what I like to call – The Mustache Marathon.

If you’re not familiar with this charity project, all participating members (presumably male) begin with a clean-shaven face on November 1st. For the rest of the month, these men, known as Mo Bros., seek out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts to help increase awareness for men’s health issues and raise money for charities that fight against prostate cancer.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate by throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the official Gala Partés.

So, what can you do to help? First and foremost, make sure you encourage your loved ones to get their yearly check-up. You can also host a Mo Bro party, donate to the cause or attend one of the Gala Partés in your city.  Walter and I will be hosting our own Mo Bro party during our trip to Shanghai in 2 weeks (more on this later!), so I’ll make sure to post pictures when we return.

For now, check out this super cute nail tutorial from Cutepolish, don some Movember merchandise (I love these shoes from Toms!) and make some delicious mustache cookies with these.

If you’d like to donate to Walter’s team or watch his slow descent into full-grown mustachery, check out his page here.

And finally, a message from the King of all Mo Bros., Hulk Hogan
