Black Friday Madness!

Happy post Black Friday madness. Never have I ever been so glad to be past Thanksgiving and in holiday limbo. While I had a lovely Thanksgiving meal with boyfriend and his family I then scurried off to Fiore where I would be spending the next 10 hours with crazed shoppers looking for deals in the middle of the night. 

I have been Black Friday shopping once in my life and I only did it because Old Navy was giving away free cameras (how can you pass that up!?) While prepping the store my friend Jennifer and I decided that people just like being at the mall and other shops in the wee hours of the morning when usually they are asleep, they just like the thought of shopping at a different hour. Here is a little of what the day was like for us......

The night before Thanksgiving a few of us stayed until around 2 am to change out the display windows! I had a lot of fun seeing our ideas come to life but it was so stressful! It is still a work in progress but I love it so far! 

This was my Thanksgiving day outfit! 
Dress: Fiore "My Story Brand" 
Boots: Fiore 
Necklace: f21 

Around 11:45 pm 15 minutes before the mall was about to open herds of people bolted through the gates, screaming and cheering. It was kind of scary and really crazy! 

Here is the result of what happens when Black Friday gets the best of you! 
Thankfully my sweet managers stepped in as "momma" and told me what to get to feel better! 
I seriously recommend baking soda toothpaste to keep the germs away so you don't get sick in the first place and Emergen-C is like powdered health. 

Did you face the crowds for any great deals!? Stay healthy! 


  1. Aw! What an awesome post! Maybe next year we can start Black Friday training. That would be both hilarious and helpful at the same time. Lol. Oh. And I did go home with the shakes yesterday. I'm glad to get back to a normal week.

  2. You looked gorgy gorg on Thanksgiving, dear! I am in freakin love with that dress!! And I'm still dying over the video of all those people running into the mall. #crazy Let me know if you want me to bring you any hot chocolate or other goodies tomorrow... I want you to feel better so you can playyy!
