Hey Beauty Lovers! It is a new week and I am loving the amazing sunny weather we are currently experiencing. The first post of this week is all about the Beauty Muse of the month. The beautiful icon – Elizabeth Taylor is the Beauty Muse for the month of September. I have always admired this woman. She was one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Her beauty was on a whole different level with the amazing facial features and stunning hair. Elizabeth Taylor is definitely a beauty muse all day, everyday. Do you agree?

Beauty Muse: Elizabeth Taylor

One of the things I really loved about Elizabeth Taylor is that she aged beautifully and naturally, which was a lovely sight to behold, in comparison with some other celebrities who have tried to fight Mother Nature.

Here are some Elizabeth Taylor’s best kept beauty secrets:

She did her own makeup

I found it very interesting to discover that Elizabeth Taylor applied her own makeup on and off screen. Her makeup always looked lovely so she must have been very talented.

“When I was younger, for a long time I didn’t wear any make-up in films; when I did start to wear make-up, I always did it myself,” she once said.

Elizabeth Taylor didn’t like conditioners

This beauty muse did not like conditioners. She felt conditioners made her hair too sleek and she preferred the bouncy look. Thankfully, with the advancement in haircare products, there are so many options for hair conditioners, ladies with bouncy hair don’t have to worry about dealing with a too sleek look.

This Beauty Muse loved drugstore brands

Elizabeth Taylor loved affordable skincare brands. Her favourite was Jergens and she used the lotion religiously.

Common Home Interior Design Mistakes You Must Avoid

*Collaborative post.

Let’s face it: many people go for similar styles when it comes to interior design. Contemporary styles are very popular at the moment, and most home furnishing retailers adapted their product ranges with that in mind.

But, that doesn’t stop people from creating their own unique styles for their homes. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that because it makes sense to come up with style fusions or try things that most other people haven’t done before with their interior design.

However, there are some very obvious mistakes that a few people make when redecorating their homes. If you want to make sure you don’t make them as well, find out more about what you need to avoid doing below:

Poor Lighting Choices

If you’re planning to live in total darkness, you can ignore this section. Otherwise, it’s essential you digest the main takeaway of this part of the article: don’t make poor lighting choices!

One of the most common interior design mistakes people make is leaving their lighting choices as an afterthought. Fantastic lighting can help transform any room into something extraordinary.

When you’re considering your interior design choices, always think about the best type of lighting to complement the colours, styles, and furniture used within each room.

Poor Furniture Choices

It should come as no surprise that one of the top reasons some people aren’t good at home interior design is when they make poor furniture choices. As you can appreciate, the furniture you choose for each room must compliment your interior decor.

For example, if you’ve gone for a contemporary look for your dining room, a round dining table and matching chairs would look quite smart compared to something that would be more in keeping with a Jacobean style.

Similarly, if you’re going for a retro art deco theme for your living room, you wouldn’t necessarily choose a shabby chic TV cabinet.

Crowded Walls

Some folks might seek inspiration for their home decor ideas on websites like Pinterest. There’s nothing wrong with that. However, it’s not always possible to pull off the same look on a “pinned” image.

One example is creating a photo montage wall. Yes, it can be a great way to remind yourself about everything you love in your life by putting up photos of certain people and places. But, you could easily go too far and create a chaotic photographic nightmare.

Consider the amount of space available to you, along with the size of the room, before you decide how many photos to put up on the wall and the dimensions of each frame.

Forgetting to Take Measurements

One final point to bear in mind is that some home dwellers fall in love with certain items of furniture, for example, and believe those items would look great in their homes. Unfortunately, they forget to take any measurements.

As you can imagine, disappointment and frustration will often ensue, especially when they can’t even get said items of furniture through their front or back doors! That’s why it’s always crucial to measure spaces and doorways before buying anything bulky.
