Movember - Ways to Help Others While Helping Yourself with J Paul Skincare

Hi ya Gorgeous,

Did you know that the month of November is to men's health awareness what October is to women's health and breast cancer awareness? It's called, Movember!




For men, Movember is about growing out a mustache, or maybe even a beard to raise awareness about men's health issues that normally don't get a lot of discussion through out the year such as prostate cancer and men's suicide rates or even rarer known health issues such as EDS.


I've written about the genius of the all in one shaver from J Paul Skincare before and today I'm revisiting the products because J Paul Skincare is doing a major fundraiser for the Ehlers-Danlos Society during the Movember movement.  (p.s. That shaver is with me as I travel!)



J Paul offers a wide variety of skincare systems for men and women, to choose from. You can get a basic 3 step skincare system of wash, scrub and shave or if you have some signs of aging, consider getting the anti-aging line, which I am using in the photos.





Help J Paul Support the Cause in #Movember!! Through the month of November, J Paul will donate 10% of all sales to the Ehlers-Danlos Society. Ehlers-Danlos Society helps raise awareness and funds for connective tissue genetic disorder EDS. For information about EDS and the Ehlers-Danlos Society visit Ehlers-Danlos.com. 




Now it's easy to get in on the support by purchasing your own skincare, or a Christmas gift of skincare for the men in your life and when you order in November for giving in December you actually give twice because J Paul Skincare is donating this month to help research and treatment for those with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

What A Guy Thinks of Dove Men+Care - How to Prep for the Holidays Ahead of Time

Hi ya Gorgeous,

Thanksgiving is two weeks away! Are you ready? Are you doing any and all pre-preparations that you can to make the day go smoother and have less time prepping and more time with friends and family? 





My family used to have great big celebrations with lots of extended families and cousins from the third bloodline joining in. These events were huge! Now, no one gets together! It's just the core family and even then - we split it up with travel to here and there. I do like how we do our holidays now though I sure do miss the old days and big family gatherings were the cooking starts the night before!


So in preparation for holiday travel and having everything pre-packed and ready to be dropped into the car at a moments notice, my son has joined me to do some first impression and reviews of the samples that Dove Men+Care sent. Thank you Dove!





Enjoy the video below and let me know in the comments what your favorite memory is of past holidays!

VOTE! Today Your Voice Matters - Your Vote Matters - Go Vote!

HI ya Gorgeous!

Today in the United States of America is an important day. It's a mid term election.



Back in the day, our ancestors, those courageous beauties in 1848 began the movement as suffragettes to earn the vote for women.

August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment granted women the right to vote. The 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote.

Go ladies go!
