Welcome Movember!

Pinned Image
My Husband is officially a Mo Bros and I am a Mo Sista!  On Movember 1st, guys register at with a clean-shaven face and then for the rest of the month Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery.

Hmm, Beatles, Moustaches and Velvet - what's not to love?

Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

Johnny DeppOops! unfortunately not a lot of fabric to see... oh well!

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

Sam Elliott - loving the stripy fabric!

The funds raised in the UK support the number one and two male specific cancers - prostate and testicular cancer.

I adore this T Shirt, unfortunately it's no longer at Les Fleurs Boutique.  Ladies you can get yourself a finger moustache (Fingerstache) tattoo here at TattooForAWeek.

It began in Melbourne Australia but Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.1 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate, with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, South Africa and Ireland.

George Clooney in appropriately named "Oh Brother Where Art Thou!". Looks like George is wearing some good sturdy fabric (I know I'm stretching the fabric mention here).

In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health cause right across the globe, from Russia to Dubai, Hong Kong to Antarctica, Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, and everywhere in between.

My excuse for including this picture of Tom Selleck, look at that fabulous shirt fabric.

The genius that is Salvador Dali (portrait by Irving Penn) - signature moustache and sharp suit, great tailoring!

Movember is about changing established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to educate men about the health risks they face, getting them to act on that knowledge thereby increasing the chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.

Antonio Banderasno fabric to see here please move along... OK maybe in a minute or two.

A few people we know have been touched by Cancer this year so this goes towards doing a little to raise some cash and awareness on the Cancer front, especially the ones that effect men. If you would like to sponsor my husband you can make a small donation here

Many thanks for taking the time to drop by and for any donations very gratefully received. If we get a good response from my Blog I might be able to persuade him to allow me to post a photo of him at the end of the month - before he shaves it off!

My DH is taking part too - he's never had a tash so I'm wondering which style he will go for!

My significant other has just grown the mother of all beards and moustaches after I heckled him for a good while to give it a go. I haven't heard of Movember but will definitely let him know about it and see if he fancies joining in. On a slightly different note... Ooooh, Johnny Depp...

Thanks for visiting my blog the other day to read Annie's post. Em x
