Movember and Mu Jaarib

Wow! I remember posting on Monday… I blinked and now it’s Friday.

I spent most of Monday and Tuesday sick in bed with flu. Not quite how I had wanted to spend my last few days in Cape Town.

I flew back on Wednesday evening and felt quite heart sore leaving Cape Town. I feel like it’s got under my skin, gripped me tight and is holding on.

Something I feel I may need to explore…

I did miss my friends and family a lot. I haven’t seen Karolina in over 3 weeks, with my traveling and her studying for exams. I’m seeing her tonight. Happy Dance.

And boy did I miss this little boy! I got the biggest love when I returned home.

Yesterday was the beginning of Movember. It’s the top lip caterpillar month girls. It’s the month where men look like creepy guys, but it’s all for a good cause.

This is taken from the Movember website:

On Movember 1st, guys register at with a clean-shave face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Mo Sistas are the women who register to support the men in their lives, raising funds by seeking sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

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. 

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember. 

I bought a Movember necklace last month and put it on yesterday. I love it.

 In other news… I am very excited to be a part of the Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile again this year. Each celeb has been allocated a race horse and a charity. I have been teamed with the gorgeous Mu Jaarib and our charity is the Animal Anti-Cruelty charity, which is something very important to me. If Mu Jaarib wins, R100 000 will be donated to the charity.

I’ll be attending the event tomorrow.

I made The Citizen newspaper today too…
