Block a little time out to take care of you as you kick off the holiday season.
Continue enjoying the fragrances of Thanksgiving's with beauty products (from cruelty-free retailers) that include natural oils, juices or scents of cranberry, orange and spice.
Take a luxurious bath or long hot shower, then wrap yourself in soft cotton and flannel, slide your tootsies into ultra-plush slippers. Finally, mix yourself up a little libation and paint your nails, listen to music, read a book or watch a movie -- perhaps even enjoying a Black Friday far away from the maddening crowds.
And learn about a movement called Block Friday that's taking on the day of greed following the day of gratitude by visiting www.blockfriday.org.
