Shopping is a raging phenomenon among developed countries and has been studied over and over. Sociologists say it´s a female drive in an attempt to explain the differences in shopping behavior between men and women. It was said that the same obsession of men over sports can be linked to the way women go crazy on Black Friday sales or on mall openings. In the evolution of man, the male species are known to be hunters while women have always been the gatherers or the ones who are in charge of finding things for their offspring. It is quite a reductionist perspective and is still widely debated, but one thing´s for sure: shopping will keep women enchanted for years to come. This behavior is not exactly exclusive to women though, because when you consider the purchase of gadgets, large screen TV, and high-end cars, the tendency of men to make expensive purchases is surely noticeable. However, this is limited to a targeted section of the market. Women, on the other hand, will shop whenever, wherever, and whatever! This is because men consider shopping as merely a purchase of specific merchandise, while for women, it´s a whole different world altogether. It´s hard to not love shopping. The glitz, glamour, scents of a newly minted shopping mall, the vibrant colors, the excitement, the friends you meet along the way, the giddy feeling of being able to all the fabulous things that money can buy - all of these are hard to resist! But when does shopping stop being a charm and starts haunting you like a curse? Where do you draw the line between recreation and obsession? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Millian Quinteros.

It was a typical fresh crisp Monday morning on February 5, 1998, after doing my routinely five-mile run, as I rushed into Starbucks, for my favorite cappuccino, topped with whip cream is a reward to myself, besides I just ran five miles, working off the calories before they are put on. Approaching the exit of Starbucks, glancing over to my right, from my peripheral view, noticing a black Bugatti emerging the store parking lot, watching his suicide doors opening, getting out is a tall, handsome, smooth chocolate, entrepreneur. Shockingly stuck in my path, eyeballing him as he enters the shop, swiftly walking by me, reeking the scent of My Burberry black cologne, as it dances into my nostril, straight to my sinus cavities, puts me in a trance, snapping back into reality with the ringing of my phone, noticing it was my girl, my A1 since day 1, Meme. Beginning to walk out the door, Excitedly, she screams, GIRLFRIEND! we got an invitation to a Ballers Valentine Day party in New York City, therefore we got some shopping to do! Ok, I agree, but girl its 6 o?clock in the am, it?s too early for you to be making plans for us to get into something. She says that?s why I?m telling you ahead of time, that?s why it?s called pre-plan hunni! Alright, bet we need a vacation anyway.
