I was walking down the streets of Manhattan during a normal work day last week, observing the colorful species of men & women within my field of vision. Directly in front of me walked a pretty, curvy 20-ish young lady of maybe latino descent. What was particularly exclusive about this woman was the structure of her body.....teeny, tiny waist and a caboose that looked like two 22-lb. bowling balls. Her striking figure spared nothing to the imagination with the skin-tight jeans she poued herself into.
The sidewalk quickly became the Greatest Show on Earth.
Men stopped what they were doing, saying, eating, breathing to turn and watch this poor young thing walk by. Some even changed their stride to walk beside her and whisper sweet "nothings" in her ear. She was completely unfaised. Men from everywhere whistled, cackled, called-out and commented (even if only in their heads).
This all made me wonder if having a knock out body is really a compliment or a curse. Are you asking for real trouble if you flaunt your assets? Does this all mean that I need to look like a librarian forever (no offense against librarians, thank you)?
What do you think?
We did a little research to see what folks around the world thought about cat-calling in point blank. Is it harmless or harassment? CNN has reported on the subject and Hollerback.com is the official place to voice your complaints about the bothersome habits of men.

Spring is in the air and oh, what havoc winter wreaked on our hair! To gradually start getting in step for the breezy, balmy warmer weather, here are 5 things you should do now.
1. Brush It Out
Toss out old hair brushes & combs. Get a new paddle brush for wet hair, a wide toothed comb for tangled hair and a fine tooth comb for gentle hair parting when styling. Real Simple Magazine tests & reviews the best for your hair and purpose.
Really clean your hair. If you’re not using a clarifying shampoo, perhaps you should. Product build-up from the winter can weigh hair down and cause it to misbehave. You’ll wind up using more product & heat just to get a style. Soon, you’ll have no
3. Build Protein & Muscle
Hair is made up of protein and much of it is lost once we begin to highlight, color, straighten and strip hair of natural protein. Protein based products add a strong shine and healthy radiance to your mane. Ask your stylist for her recommendation on
great over-the-counter protein shampoos/conditioners.
4. Interview the Right Candidate
Find the right stylist. If your professional stylist isn’t giving you good advice about the condition of your hair, along with at-home remedies you can implement….find another stylist! Your hair professional should be doing more than just “doing your hair”.
Shop around until you've found one who truly cares about you!
5. Fresh Ends
Make an appointment with your stylist to get those frizzy, winter ends clipped. Extended wear of woolen hats and scarves can cause hair ends to split and fray. Clipped ends add weight and depth to hair without sacrificing length. You can decide on a new summer hairstyle soon. For now, clean up what you have.
I'm not necessarily a slave to the latest seasonal trends... I don't need to shop until I drop....I can't justify spending my entire Spring tax return check on shoes that I know I can't even walk in. Truth be told, I've got some shoe boxes in my closet from last season- unopened, unworn and still waiting for a grand entrance.
But let's face it girls, we all need a little "feel good" token to usher in the 2013 fun & frollic season. So, here are the best pics from Style.com we found. Happy dancing!
