Five things MEN can do to help women feel better about their bodies (and looks)

SOME of you may have noticed that there wasn’t a post from me on Monday. I like to try and post at least three times a week on Pouting In Heels. It’s a do-able amount for me (usually) and hopefully enough content for you guys to keep things interesting.
