Researchers from the University of Michigan have confirmed what betches across the globe have always known: #77 shopping makes you happier. They found that 'shopping was up to 40 times more effective at giving people a sense of control, and they were three times less sad compared to those who only browsed.' So be sure to keep that statistic in your arsenal of excuses for your dad while explaining your credit card bill. I guess this really gives a true meaning to Cher Horowitz's quote before she embarks to the mall, "I felt impotent and out of control. Which I really, really hate. I had to find sanctuary in a place where I could gather my thoughts and regain my strength...". We always knew this betch was wise.
