The Best Things in Life are Free

The Best Things in Life are Free

At least that’s what ‘they’ say! I get that, I really do, if one considers what’s really important in life the best things aren’t anything you go somewhere to buy. As far as I know laughs are free as are hugs, sleep, and good memories. As far as I’m concerned best friends are free, if they’re not…they’re not your friend. 🙂 But if you tend to think the best things in life are things that cost money, then you’re priorities are somewhat skewed! Unless you’re talking about chocolate, chocolate isn’t free, and it’s right up there in what’s good in life. Coffee……..coffee isn’t free, either. Unless of course someone treats you to a coffee, then it’s free and one of the best things in life. Music isn’t free, unless a person can sing a cappella, then it’s free. Since I can’t sing and I don’t play any sort of musical instrument, music isn’t free, but it is one of the best things in life. I like to keep life simple, enjoying the very basics of what is good in this world. I admit to enjoying my Second Life, which requires a computer and internet connection, but is it one of the best things in life? Maybe on some days, but I still enjoy sitting in the sunshine with a peaceful mind enjoying the very basics in life, like fresh air, soft breezes, and the stillness of my world.

Ok, I felt a little pressured to get this picture, and I finally got one I can live with, after numerous changes to my hair and top, different poses and angles, then to find a wind light was downright agony! But, here it is……and just in time! It’s the second weekend of the month(already) which means it’s Monthly Midnight Madness! And at Elle Boutique(formerly Slipper Originals) the store is abuzz with the upcoming round. Starting at midnight tonight……whether you call it Friday night or Saturday morning, Elle will make the MMM board active and the first 1500 people who tap the board will get the ‘Tabitha Earrings’, in silver and turquoise, with an add-on HUD available for a reasonable price to make it a full set.

Then at noon Saturday the board will be restocked and the ‘Deja Vintage Earrings’will become available to the first 1500 avis again, who touch the board. I’m wearing these earrings in my shot, in the free version colours. There will also be an add-on HUD to make it a full set. If you happen to miss out on either of these items, all is not lost. All day Sunday you can stop in at the main store and pick up the earrings, for a nominal fee and the add-on HUDs for the same reasonable price as before.

It’s an exciting weekend, you can find more information on Monthly Midnight Madness here.

I came across the ‘Chaeyoung’ hair in my inventory, having forgotten I even had it. It’s from [monso].

The ‘Free to Love’ tattoo is from Carol G Tattoo Wear.

My look all begins with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added a bit of eye shadow from the ‘Tiana Eye makeup’ set from Zibska. You can’t see much of it, but I know it’s there. 🙂

The pose is from the ‘Loose Ends’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.
