Like many of us, when I see those magical words "Marked Down, Limited Time Only," or my all-time favorite, "50% Off," I swoon and all reasonable judgment goes out the window. I can’t tell you how many ugly sweaters, awkward pairs of shoes or promising pieces of exercise equipment I own just because they were “on sale.” I could convince myself to buy just about anything if I thought I was saving money by doing so. I mean, a deal’s a deal, right?
That said, I’ve always been a big participant on Black Friday — rising early, despite my turkey hangover to collect with the masses and get the best holiday deals. But after years of loyalty to the consumer-based holiday, I began to notice; Black Friday was beginning to lose its luster. The day was spent battling traffic, only to hunt for parking, fight the crowds and come home exhausted. And like that plane ticket you purchased with the three-hour layover, it was never worth it. Once I was home, I’d rummage through my loot, less impressed by my purchases than I had been while in-store.
So this year I’ve vowed to try an alternate approach. This year, I’m going to spend my Black Friday taking care of me. Yep, I’m headed to the spa. And while I’ll never turn my back on a good sale, I’ll think twice before braving the crowds on the busiest shopping day of the year.
All the Best!

Need a little more convincing? Here are the top 5 reasons to spend Black Friday at Kinara Spa.
#5. We have valet. Let’s face it, this is Los Angeles, easy parking just makes life better.
#4. You’ll leave rejuvenated, pampered and relaxed. Basically the opposite of how you’d feel after a day spent with chaotic shoppers.
#3. You’ve been busy taking care of everyone but yourself. School is back in session and the holidays are approaching. That means your needs have likely taken a back seat. Spa day anyone?
#2. You want to look great over the holidays. Spa days don’t just make you feel better, they make you look better too.
#1. All Kinara services and products will be 30% OFF! I mean…it is Black Friday after all!
