What I'm Reading Now: 2 Girls In 2 Cities

I'm excited to feature Amanda and Jennie from 2 Girls in 2 Cities today! Amanda and Jennie lived together at the University of Dayton, and after graduation started their blog 2 Girls in 2 Cities as a way to keep in touch (such a great idea). With a shared interest in clothes, cooking, DIY projects and more you'll love keeping up with these girls.

Get to know Amanda and Jennie:

1. What are you currently reading?
A: "The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life andBusiness." I'm not very far yet, but so far it's a really interesting look at habits - how they are formed, changed, and examples of how using knowledge of habits has influenced things like marketing campaigns and SuperBowl wins. 

J: "The Fault In Our Stars." Sarah let me borrow this book. I'm about halfway through the story and am still on the fence if I like it or not, but definitely want to finish the book to then see the movie. 

2. Favorite recipe or restaurant?
A: My mom's Chex Mix! I had to beg to get her secret recipe once I became an "adult," and I look forward to making it as soon as the weather turns cool each year. 

J: I love all things Crock-Pot, and am guessing I'll be doing a lot of cooking in mine this winter. I love it for unexpected recipes too, such as this slow cooker apple crisp I tried first last year. 

3. What's your favorite thing about blogging?
A: Getting to do it with Jennie! It's been a fun way to keep in touch, and it's been really great having someone to toss ideas around with - both blog and purchase related- and seeing how both of our styles have grown over the past 2.5 years. 

J: Definitely keeping my friendship going with Amanda, and as well as creating more friendships! Thanks to Amanda and other women I met in the blogger community, I always feel like I have someone to ask about as simple as "Should I buy this dress?" or for advice on bigger things. 

4. Five things on your wish list?

  1. Those fancy gripper toe socks everyone has in barre classes
  2. A little black bag perfect for weekends (the Rebecca Minkoff Quilted Affair bag?)
  3. L.L. Bean boots for the winter
  4. The Kate Spade Taurus charm bracelet
  5. A nice, leather duffel bag that meets airline carry-on measurements
  1. A black side sling purse for jaunts around the city
  2. An ear cuff
  3. A pair of "shorties
  4. A fedora that Amanda always makes look so good
  5. A trip to see my parents' new house in Florida
5. Favorite quote?
A: "I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls." (Audrey Hepburn). It's always a great reminder for me to do something that makes me happy every day - especially on the bad days. 

J: "Things happen that you never expect." My mom said this to me when I was exiting the car in a bad mood one day in high school, and I try to keep it in mind whenever it feels like things aren't going my way. Because maybe it's just the way it's supposed to go.
