According to some recent research (though I doubt it would pass any sort of peer review) published in The Daily Mail (UK) DAVID THOMAS combed through a mountain of government statistics, academic research, media surveys and pollsters’ reports to uncover the truth about the way UK women are… here is a short extract:
MRS AVERAGE GETS DOLLED UPMrs Average naturally wants to look her best.That is why she buys an average 34 items of clothing every year, spending £3,000 on her purchases.These are piled into a wardrobe where an average six items have never been worn.
She believes the sexiest item in her wardrobe is her favourite little black dress, followed by her killer heels and her snug-fitting jeans.
She will spend 603 days applying make-up and 170 days taking it off. Luckily, women can multitask, so these are probably the same days she spends in front of the mirror.
And her biggest expense of all is her hair, on which she spends a mind-blowing £36,903.75.
