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.

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.

What I’m Learning About This Month

I always think it’s important to have a curious mind. Anyone that knows me has probably been bored by my endless supply of largely useless facts and trivia. It pains me to say it, but I’m ‘that guy’ 🤦🏻‍♂️.

I love learning, it’s definitely my ‘thing’. I don’t really like studying or being tested in a formal context, but learning, hearing about, and seeing how things work makes me happy. Last year, my big thing was learning about how the human body works in relation to nutrition, which led me on to learning about hormones and the endocrine system. A while back I learned about latte art and milk foam. I really like etymology and learning about the history of words, and how they came to be. I think it’s important to know something about everything. I’m by no means an expert on any of this stuff... more of an amateur enthusiast 😂

Unexpected Face Care Shopping

I’m pretty rubbish when it comes to my skincare. From time to time, I will buy products and use them religiously for about a week, but eventually stop. Part of this is due to my own laziness, but also due to my skin not really liking too much in the way of creams etc.

Well last night I was the victim of social media advertising, and the epicness of modern technology and services 😂. Minding my own business on my sofa swiping as I often do, with laid back lounge music playing in the background, I saw an advert for L’Oreal’s new Barber Club range of men’s products. I don’t know what happened, but I was immediately compelled to go on Amazon and buy them! What’s even crazier is that I used Amazon Now, so they came within a couple of hours! This is the future, I’m telling you!
