A Dumfries and Galloway guide to unleashing your inner mythical creature

TIRED of being human? Life feeling a bit mundane? Ever felt like the grass looks greener (or the ocean bluer) on the mythical side? Well stylists and creatives in the region know just what to do to help you unleash your inner mermaid, merman and unicorn. (Disclaimer: Following these steps will not turn you into a real mythical creature.)

 

STEP ONE – CHANGE YOUR HAIR

Nothing says I’m a mermaid like long flowing locks . . . especially if they’re green . . .

Merman look anyone?

Of course not everyone wants to a mermaid, some people prefer unicorns . . .

STEP TWO – GLITTER UP

Nothing says mythical like glitter. Glitter lips, glitter eyebrows, glitter hair. There is no such thing as too much glitter.

STEP FOUR – YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

They say you are what you eat (in this case drink) and thanks to talented baristas (in this case Cheryl Candlish) at Kilnford Farm Shop and Farmhouse Kitchen Cafe, you can drink drinks as splendid as this. (Disclaimer: this will not actually turn you into a unicorn)

In short . . . choose mythical life. Choose becoming a mermaid. Choose being a unicorn. Choose dying your hair pink. Choose glitter nails. Choose glitter lips. Choose drinking unicorn hot chocolate.
