Savvy shopper Christine Mitchell is here to save your procrastinating ass
We're the kind of
people you see sprinting frantically around the mall on Christmas Eve,
mainlining food-court coffee with sweat streaming down our red faces as we
elbow other hapless procrastinators out of our way because WE SAW THAT SCARF
FIRST AIGHT? But we're not proud of it.

A LOT of women love to shop, and buy things -- expensive things. But really it's not our fault! It's completely natural I swear. Of course like our bad mood swings, and our thirst for chocolate and cheese (not together), it's all linked to our monthly cycle. And now we can all blame a trip down Newbury Street, maxed credit cards in hand, on our bodies. At least that's what a new study coming out in Britain is saying anyway.
