The 10 Questions 
1. Why did you create this blog?

I created this blog in July '10 because I had become obsessed with reading other people's blogs! I knew I wanted to start one, but felt that I didn't have much to blog about.  One day, I just bit the bullet and "My Two Cents ...before I spend it" was born!  It has been such a wonderful networking tool, as well as very therapeutic for me!

 2. What kinds of blogs do you follow?
  I mostly follow fashion, beauty and healthy living blogs. I love browsing through blogs about wedding planning because I used to aspire to be a wedding planner! I seriously have owned a big stack of wedding books since I was 15.

3. Favorite make-up brand?

I own a modge podge of different make up brands.  I love Nars bronzer/blush, Lancome foundation, Amazing Cosmetics concealer, Urban Decay eye shadows ...etc.

4. Favorite clothing brand?
I have many favorites! Tory Burch, Lilly Pulitzer
, Milly, Tibi, Banana Republic, J. Crew, Gap ...oh, this could go on and on.  This girl likes to shop. 

5. Indispensable makeup product?

My three most necessary products are tinted moisturizer, bronzer, and mascara.

6. Favorite color?

My favorite color in general is purple. It makes me feel cheerful! As far as clothes go, my favorite color to wear is black. 

.7. Favorite perfume?
Chanel Mademoiselle.

8. Favorite movie?

Question number seven was much easier than this! I enjoy many movies, but I don't have one favorite.  Hmm, I will say that a movie that I will NEVER get tired of is The Devil Wears Prada

9. What country would you like to visit?
Italy. I'm dying to see Florence and Gargano.  
 I'd also love to go to the Maldives!

10. Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?
Definitely blush because my eyes look so different with and without mascara!

I pass this on to:
