Finishing Touch (Unit No 8)

Cristiane was persuaded by her parents to lease one of the units.  She hadn’t really wanted to because she hadn’t decided yet what course her life & career were meant to take.  As it happened she was glad that she did take a unit because the other girls were great fun.

Her mother had decided that she should sell hats, scarves, gloves & belts (as she decided most things in Cristianes life) because the theme tied in to what the other units were selling. Cristiane thought it was a lame idea but when her mother insisted on paying all of the upfront costs, she had gone along with it.

She didn’t try very hard to sell anything; if people looked and decided they liked what she had, fine, and if not, that was fine too.

Here we see her friends Iris and Blake messing around in general, but when a friend of Cristianes mother turns up to buy something it gives Cristiane the push that she needs. Iris and Blake each make a purchase too so Cristiane hopes it will keep her mother off her back for a few days.

Up Ahead (Unit No 7)

Lyra & Eliette have formed a partnership to rent this unit that will focus on ladies wigs and glasses.  They have both completed hair & beauty training courses and are eager to get started.

They are fitting the wigs where requested, and offer a ‘wash & swap’ service whereby the wigs can be returned, to swap for another one or simply to wash & style for the customer.

On their first day of opening they had four customers: Kym (rents another unit), Ragna, Honey and Diana and each left with a brand new look.

Boys Toys from Destiny (Unit No 6)

A second toy stall has opened within the mall, with this one geared more towards boys.  Destiny wanted to work in retail so the opportunity to lease this small unit suits her fine for now.  She is a collector, and as such has to be careful not to get too hung up on any particular toy, or toy line because as any collector could tell you ‘once bitten by the bug, you are affected for life’ anything can become the next ‘must have’…

The small unit makes the most of space and even has a small area for reading or play.  On this particular day Morgan, Amelie and David each shopped there and none were able to offer any suggestions for improvements (Destiny asked each customer to submit anonymous feedback- a nice touch I feel).

Riley’s Play Date

Riley’s Mom & Dad were having an afternoon outing and had roped in Amelie and Tiffany to babysit Riley.  When best friends Amelie and Tiffany accepted the job they hadn’t realised that Riley had a pre-arranged play date with two friends.

Riley was playing really nicely with Milly and Tish when Amelie decided that the three friends could share an Easter egg while they were playing outdoors (less mess inside the house…).  She bought the one that was wrapped in shiny blue paper and placed the pieces in front of Riley.

Well, as soon as the chocolate was put down Milly decided it was hers, all hers.  She made a grab for it and Riley put her arm out to try and stop her taking it.   Milly saw this as an infringement and started to lash out at Riley.

Tiffany knelt down and stopped the girls and explained why they shouldn’t be fighting each other, then she removed the egg until their behaviour was better.  Milly then went into a sulk and turned her back on Riley, who made the most of the opportunity to give a yank on Milly’s ponytail!

All this time Tish had been as good as gold, and just carried on playing on her own.  Riley said sorry to Amelie, and that was enough for Amelie to pick her up and give her a cuddle.  When Milly saw this, she said sorry to Tiffany who knew what the little minx was up to, but found her beguiling.

Suffice to say that they were all friends again by the time Riley’s parents returned home.
