Movember Update

Quick little update on how my moustache is coming along for Movember. I’ve got past the initial, awkward, in between phase of it just looking like nothing, thankfully! A few people are actually commenting on it, which means we’re venturing into the territory of it being a credible face adornment. I’m not quite at the point where I can look at styling it or training it too much into any particular shape, and it’s still a little messy and patchy around the edges.

Top 5 Winter Fragrances For Men in 2018

When it comes to fragrance, I’ve always been a fresh citrussy kind of guy. Aquatic accords and bergamot notes have always formed the backbone of what I would wear daily. The thing is, whilst they work really well during the summer months, once the nights draw in and the weather turns cold, they just don’t have the same feel.

My winter fragrance wardrobe is rather limited, but I do have 5 fragrances that I’m going to be rotating through for different occasions for the next few months. There are a few I don’t own as of yet, that would probably make this list, but I like to keep things real and showcase what I’m genuinely going to wear this winter.

Why I’m Choosing to Wear my Apple Watch Less

Back in September, I did a review of my Apple Watch Series 2. I mentioned in that post that I always felt compelled to wear it, at the expense of aesthetics, due to functionality and the fitness data it collects, which has been amazing for my continued health and weight loss mission. Well recently, with me questioning how invested I am in the Apple ecosystem, I’ve begun to wear my Apple Watch a lot less.

As I said in my review, the Apple Watch is an amazing piece of tech, and I do love it. It’s also really helped to change my life and get me to a point where I’m relatively happy with my body image and my general state of health, so I’m still glad I own it.

Movember Update

Thought I should do a little update on my upper lip progress for Movember. The idea is that on November 1st, you should shave everything off completely, and then spend the month growing a full and luscious moustache. It’s been about a week since I shaved it all off, and progress is slower than I’d hoped for. At this point, I’m kind of looking at it and wondering if I’ll even be able to grow a decent mouth brow.

That being said, it has only been a week, and this is supposed to be a month long process, so I still have a long way to go before I’ll need to worry too much about my prowess in the lip warming department.
