🌙 Glow-y Evening Routine
I started trying out the @tan_luxe Rejuvenating Self Tan Drops a few weeks ago and I’ve been really enjoying including them in my PM routine every few days. They mix in easily with my Stratia Skin Liquid Gold and absorb really quickly, with no dreaded ‘fake-tan’ smell! A little goes a long way with these drops - after some testing, I now use 3 drops every 3rd night and that gives me the perfect amount of colour to avoid looking pasty this winter!

Another way I like to think about bipolar, the depression and mania, is as music. So let’s say you put on a track. It sounds how it sounds, if you like it you like it, if you don’t you don’t, that’s normal. But in depression, the music plays but you feel nothing. It’s the same track you liked or disliked the last time you heard it but it has no effect on you, it’s like it’s not even there. That’s depression.
But in Hypomania, when you put that track on, you hear it differently. Even the neighbours can hear it, you're having a proper jam, the music sounds better, every note, change in pitch, every counter rhythm, every rhythm, you hear things that aren’t even there, I mean what’s a fucking counter rhythm? It makes you feel invincible. It’s like you are the music and the music is you.
But as hypomania hits mania it’s all that and more. There’s only 10 on the volume but you hear it at 11. It’s not music anymore. It’s a cacophony of sound that you can’t escape. You try to turn it down but you've lost control. It gets so bad that you smash up the sound system and that’s when the psychosis hits because the music’s still there even after you’ve smashed up the equipment. But in psychosis the music’s flipped, it’s like nothing you’ve heard before, something from another planet, a message from the galactic federation, and they are speaking directly to you, telling you exactly what to do, you are in control of the cosmos, you are keeping the earth spinning on its axis, you are filling the gap between the tick and the tock, and only you can understand it.
And then you wake up in hospital.

A bloody lovely night at The Hydro for Mogwai. Had the pleasure of the company of some of the best people too. All in all a triumphant evening and an excellent reminder of why Glasgow is great. #mogwai#hydro#glasgow#music#gig
