What a diamond. Champagne lover, literature fiend, blonde bombshell, femme fatale, one woman wonder, super star and all round beauty queen.
Here’s the best of Miss Marilyn Monroe. Those curves, that smile and some precious pearls of wisdom that should make you loud, proud and ready to shine. Life is short. Get out there and grab it.
December. Hello, old friend. It’s been a while.
All hail the final month of the year.
December rushes into our homes in a whirlwind of snow flurries, icicles and chocolate laden calendars. It also heralds, of course, the beginning of the Christmas season. The season of joy and frivolity. The season of mince pies and red Starbucks cups. The season of frantic shopping, bulging tummies and hungry wallets.
But when does Christmas really begin? The answer is right here. Just press play.
Yes, for most of us, the beginning of Christmas is marked by the first viewing of the annual Coca Cola advert. No one can escape that glowy, excited feeling that awakens the winter butterflies in your tummy on hearing the ‘holidays are coming’ jingle, swiftly followed by a shout out to that special someone with whom you share this festive tradition. For me, it’s my little sister and there’s nothing quite like it.
But whether or not Christmas has officially begun for you, make sure you shake up the happiness. Ho Ho Ho. Share the love.
Shake up happiness.
Make me laugh, don’t let me mourn.
Look on the bright side. It’s Movember. That’s got to be good enough to tickle your lips into a reluctant smile. No? How many moustaches have you seen this morning? One? Ten? What about taches with taches?!
It’s the final few days of NO SHAVE NOVEMBER and there should be fully grown moustache monsters creepy crawling all over the place.
Whether your Movember experience has made you laugh or cry, tickle or itch, you can’t deny that it has made an impact. The face of men’s health has most certainly changed. But how has it changed you? Cast your vote now.

g) Focus Pocus
Farewell for now. We’ll shave mo of this for next year.
Happy Monday y’all.
So we’re about halfway through Novembeard and you should be seeing some pretty substantial staches taking over the faces of men across the country. But Movember isn’t just for the lads. No, no. Behind every hairy mo ‘bro, there’s a, hopefully less hairy, mo ‘sista.
The Mo ‘Sistahood exists to support the men in our lives in their efforts to change the face of mens health. Yes, even if it means that we have to endure the consequences. Play play for details.
Lucky enough not to have to get up close and personal with a mo? Here are 8 other ways you can get involved and share the moustache love.
1. Fake it.
2. Bake it.
3. Drink it.
4. Wear it.
5. Paint it.
6. Furnish it.
7. Share it.
8. Wear it.
If it’s good enough for Natalie Portman, it’s good enough for me.
Happy Movember Monday, or at least what’s left of it. One day closer to the weekend. High fives all round. Now, back to business. Take a look at the unusual suspects below. Can you work out which one is the odd one out? And before you guess, no, it’s not Tom Selleck because he is the only one forcing a smile. Have a go.
QUESTION: Which is the odd one out?
ANSWER: ALL OF THEM.
Let’s be honest, these characters look ridiculous without their respective staches. And what a vast variety of mos they sport indeed. Moustaches make a difference. Fact. Let’s take a look at how famous men in history wear theirs.
What will your tache turn you into?
Get growing. Get creative. Get in touch and let us know how you’re getting on.
First it was boobs, now it’s balls. What the MOFO is going on?! Every Monday this month, we’re going to devote some time to changing the face of men’s health. Movember is all about raising funds and awareness for cancers that affect men, such as prostate and testicular cancer. So without further ado…
It is with great pleasure that I can now announce the arrival of the MOMENTOUS MONTH OF MOVEMBER!
Stash those razors away guys, it’s time to go ‘au naturel’. But keep those clippers handy because while ladies are partial to the sexy scratch of your rugged stubble, that animal you’re growing above your top lip absolutely has to be tamed! It’s funny enough to see you grow that mo, but man are those things ticklish. So save our skin and keep it trim!
Now, you manly men should be relatively smooth at this stage, so while you’ve still got time to groom and grow your tash into a work of art, let’s kick off Noshavember with some ideas to make your mo moustashtic.
Remember, whatever style you choose, wear your moustache with pride! We’re with you all the way, Mo Bros and we’d love to support your tash with some cash. Click here to add details of your Movember fundraising page and they will be featured on this blog so we can keep track of your mogress.
The weekend is over. A new week has begun. But instead of falling into the Monday morning mope, let’s fall down the rabbit hole instead and have some fun. I’ve been pondering Wonderland through Alice eyes. What does it all mean? Can we learn anything from it? So, I’ve gathered together the best quotes and images to be found and attempted to tie them together with some non and some sense. To quote the Duchess:
“Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it.”
THE WHITE RABBIT
The White Rabbit. That waistcoat wearing, clock bearing, hop hop hopping curiosity that may have killed the cat. Or Alice for that matter. Be curious. Follow that rabbit. You never know where it might lead you.
FALLING DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE
Yes, it might lead you to some incomprehensible places for reasons as yet unknown. Places that are dark and fuzzy, surreal and strange. Places that scare you and dare you to explore. Feel the fear. Step out of your comfort zone. Take a chance and do something different. Surprise yourself. You never know what’s round the corner so instead of waiting, hop skip and jump right in.
Drink me. Eat me. Challenge me. Dare me. Do something spontaneous. Take a risk. It may unlock doors that once seemed impassible. No, I don’t mean impossible. As Door so rightly stated:
“Nothing is impossible!”
BIG AND LITTLE
Sometimes you’re ten feet tall, know it all, having a ball. Next, you take a curve ball, have a great fall, feel teeny tiny small. We change. We grow. We go one way. We stop. We change direction. We take a couple of steps back then a few forward. Like a dance. Most importantly, we just keep going.
Tick tock. Tick tock. The ticking clock will never stop. Time is elusive. Time won’t wait. Time is all we have. Time is now. Now is for ever. Live for now. This moment. Right here. And the next. And the next.
PACK OF CARDS
Life is like a game of cards. People are dealt different hands. Some keep their cards close to their chest. Some play by the rules. Some cheat. Sometimes, you just need a bit of luck. Sometimes, following the rules is futile. Sometimes, you just have to go with it. Pick a card, any card and make it work.
MAD HATTER’S TEA PARTY
“Curiouser and Curiouser”
Alice, we know exactly how you feel about life not making sense. But sense is for tasting. For seeing. For hearing, feeling, smelling. There is no sense in trying to make sense of something that has no sense at all. Life is nonsensical. The wise sense that life is for living, for sensing, for nonsensing. Life is not for trying to make sense. If that sounds like nonsense then it most probably makes sense.
Take a leaf out of the Hatter’s tea cup. Embrace the nonsense. Oh, and drink tea.
“We’re all mad here”
THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS
Looking at your reflection in the mirror is all well and good. If you like what you see, of course. But, as much as we’re convinced to believe otherwise, surface is superficial. Sometimes you have to go deeper. We’re not our own reflections. We’re human. We have multiple dimensions. We have layers. We have depth. Most of all, we have imperfections. That’s what makes us all so darn perfect! Give up standing on the outside, appraising exteriors. Step into that looking glass and explore a plethora of individual, nonsensical and utterly fabulous wonderlands.
We are all Alice. We are all exploring. Wonderland is exhausting. But help is at hand. Read. Use your imagination. Play. Be spontaneous. Live young. Stand tall. Most importantly… BE. LIVE. BELIEVE.
Finally, that age-old question that’s had us scratching our chins for decades…
“Why is a raven like a writing desk?”
Lewis Carroll had this to say:
The End. Or should I say, THE BEGINNING. Write your own Wonderland.
