Why is it called Black Friday?


From what I have read, Black Friday got its name from the heavy traffic the shopping sales caused. Now the sales begin sooner than ever and Cyber Monday seems to start the Monday before Thanksgiving.

Black Friday sales are coming to an end. Did you get everything you wanted? After all that shopping  I needed to stop in this little cafe in Cherishville. Listed are just a few from stores that I blog for.

Hold on Tight

I’m loving the new Catwa Tumble head. The fatpack version came with two huds. One for emotions, such as blinking, closing your eyes, frowning, smiling, and even sticking out your tongue. You’ll also find that there are preset moods already built in. Another nice option available is to have your mouth mimic talking.

The other hud is for the teeth, head base, lashes, makeups, and skin tones. There are even spaces to save your favorite makeups, so that you don’t have to find another applier hud every time you want to change your look. You can see the price differences broken up by add-on here.

Catwa Tumble Faces

I usually stick to Glam Affair skins. But, I did pick up several other brands to see how their makeup appliers looked. And I liked quite a few of them. One of the reasons that I don’t use other brands is because not only do you have to buy the makeup applier but also the mesh body applier. Glam Affair has their skin appliers built in the Maitreya Lara body hud. After trying some of these I might just have to go shopping. Do you have a favorite?

Ever Left The House In A Hurry And Ran Into Someone You Know?

At one time or another we have all left the house not looking our best. We just throw on a pair of jogging pants, quickly grab some shoes, and throw our hair up in a bun. We go running out the door hoping that we don’t bump into someone that we know. Because we know there is that one friend that loves to gossip. And she will be talking about you next. Oh that poor Caroline can’t afford a hairbrush or decent clothes. You can just hear her in your head now.

fancy meeting you here

With my new sexy open back Neve sweaters I can still look good on a quick run, even when worn up with joggers. I paired these outfits up with cute shoes from Ingenue. I love both of these hairstyles. The updo will go with any style clothes that I wear, and the Oleander hair looks innocent and sweet. So even if you have to leave the house not looking your best you will still look great with these looks. And that friend won’t have much to talk about except how gorgeous you are lately.

Which MeOwl are You?

I was shopping at The Seasons Story event and came across the Meowl gacha from Schadenfreude. This adorable little guy is Pepe, and I just happen to have the perfect matching dress to go with him. I love his warm colors and big blue eyes. I will go back and play some more until I get Muerto and Pumpkin. I’m feeling all of these. The Meowls come with a holding animation built in or you can rez them for decor.

The Seasons Story is celebrating their second anniversary. You’ll find a lot of gifts from the designers at this event. My cute gold owl earrings are a gift from Ninety. It came with a color change hud. Wasabi Pills has the Poppy hair style at this event. They have the browns color pack on sale at 50% off for the duration of the event. I love the updo with a few strands framing the face. With such a large variety of designers at this event I am sure you will find something that you cannot resist.


The Embrace dress in Linear is from Neve. These gorgeous dresses come with a color change hud. There are 4 color packs with 4 textures in each pack. You can also change the color of the scarf separate from the dress or remove the scarf completely. This particular color scheme is from the Linear pack and matches my Meowl. Yay! The Embrace dress from Neve is new for MIX, and you can pick it up in their main store location.

The Kat knit crochet stockings are new from AlaskaMetro. You can wear these on the classic avatar, or through a hud for Slink, TMP, or using the Omega System. I am wearing them on my Maitreya Lara body. They are ridiculously priced too low (25L) at the AnyBODY event. Definitely get a pair or 4.

Lydia D Booties

The mesh fit shoes are from my most favorite person and brand. Betty Doyle of Ingenue has these Lydia D. Booties at Collabor88. They are named after Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice and comes in 13 colors. For some people 13 is a lucky number. I love the decor on the sides of the shoes.

The Location is on Lo Lo and available for anyone to take pictures.

Why We Love Fall (And You Should, Too!)

Fall Shopping Day

Fall isn’t just about pumpkin lattes and Halloween. Some stores do have Christmas stuff out already. All joking aside, this turning of the season also means that it is time to shop for new clothes! Shopping is a favorite pastime for most people that I know. And the beginning of the month means new product and sales are awaiting us!

Neve is participating in the MIX event with two new mesh dresses. The one I have on today is Acute and comes in four different textures (plaid/floral/lively/neutral). Each texture pack that you buy comes with a four color hud. These colors are great for the fall season. The color of the belt can also be changed, or you can remove it from the dress. Neve mesh clothes are made to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Slink Physique, and the classic avatar.

My gorgeous flowing locks are by Mina. She is one of the great sought after hair dressers in Second Life. This hairstyle is called Laila and is 50% off for the MIX event this month. Working our way down to the dazzling necklace I am wearing is ANE Angel Heart Necklace in diamond/silver. The bags are both from ROWNE and Zenith gachas. I love purses and these are really outstanding. I want to take the time to say that ROWNE has outstanding customer service. I rezzed this bag for decor and it poofed. Gone. So I contacted their customer service agent, Justice Topaz, and she sent me a new replacement! Apparently ROWNE bags cannot be rezzed, so do not try it.

And finally down to the feet we have Ingenue Astrid and Ninette Heels. The Ninette Heels were just on sale for FLF. Hope you were able to grab them. Betty Doyle is an outstanding footwear designer. I wish she would try and make clothes again. My powder blue classic stiletto heels are Sutra II from AlaskaMetro and matches perfectly with the outfit.

Pet Friendly Places to Visit

Pet Friendly Places to Visit

I recently obtained a super cute puppy from NANTRA. We visited several sims with him in my arms. Even the Kittycats sim was a nice place to visit. The consensus is that most all places are pretty puppy friendly. The only problem would be if I wanted to put him down without a leash. Luckily he came with one. The sim we decided to take pictures in is Flux Sur Mer. It’s a really nice sim with a lot of quaint places to take snapshots or just to hang out. See the listing in the destination guide.

My comfy clothes are from Neve. I love clothes that are versatile. The undershirt can be changed with a choice of 6 colors, as well the sweater has 4 choices. The leggings are also from Neve and can be worn with boots. The hud has buttons to alpha out parts of the bottom to make them work. Neve mesh is well rounded and made for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and the Classic Avatar.

I’m still wearing the beautiful flowing Stephanie hair from EMO-tions. The shoes are Elysium’s Greta Loafers and go perfectly with this soft comfy look. I’m just out on a stroll with my cutie puppy. This pose was created by Nantra and comes with a puppy, books, and tintable purse. I have to admit that this particular pose was made for holding books and walking the dog on a leash. But I changed the pose set to hold the puppy in the right hand and my bag on the left. These items are from My Attic which opens today and closes September 30th.
