How to be a pre-raphaelite muse

🌹 wear flowy dresses in intense colors and flower patterns
🌹 enjoy art of all kinds
🌹 collect your favorite poems and inspiring quotes
🌹 try to find beauty in everything
🌹 spend time in art galleries, museums, theatres
🌹 be nice to people and charm them more with your intelligence than your look
🌹wear gold and silver jewelry and perfumes with musk and almond
🌹 put flowers in loose hair
🌹 surround yourself with antiques, books and paintings
🌹 music to love: celtic rhythms, harp, “Ceremonials”, orchestral
🌹 care about your inner beauty and mind as much as about your appearance
