Hey There

Meet Teresa Caruso

I’m Teresa and welcome to TeresaCaruso.com (formerly known as Money Can Buy Lipstick)! I started my blog in 2012 while I was studying Fashion Merchandising at Philadelphia University. It was my senior year of college, and although I had already been there for nearly four years, I was still struggling with feeling homesick, anxious, and lonely. I spent all of my nights and weekends quietly working on my blog, and it became the perfect creative outlet for me. Nearly eight years later, my community of readers have become like family to me and I have been able to transition my blog into a space where people from all over the world can come to for a daily dose of inspiration. While I do share quite the variety of topics here on TC, organization tips, interiors, and tracking down the best Amazon finds are three of my specialties. I also blog about beauty, fashion, food, and travel.

I currently live in Brooklyn, New York (born and raised) with my husband Matt, and our beloved dog, Merlin. Since the day we met (back in 2010), Matt has been my number one fan and one of the driving forces in making sure I never gave up on my blog. He always believed in me and what I was creating, even when others didn’t quite understand. I am the oldest of three kids and have two younger brothers, Frankie and Gino. Family has and will always be the most important part of my life, and they are the backbone of who I am.

So, what’s next? Right now Matt and I are currently in the market for our first home, and spend all of our time searching for houses and dreaming up the possibilities.
