After an eventful week, this weekend is going to be pretty low-key. I’ll be packing and getting ready to leave for New York next week and I’m sure Thomas is making us plans for the super bowl. We’ve always had a big party for the game, but this year is a little different now that we’re not in college anymore :) One thing I’ll be doing though is cooking up a storm! Please share any and all of your favorite recipes (or direct me to your “food” pinterest boards for ideas)
Also, are you on Vine yet? It’s a little addicting- similar to instagram, but 6 second videos instead! You can follow me @galmeetsglam
When I’m stuck in a rut with the clothes in my closet (I think everyone goes through this, right?!) I always go back to the basics. Some of my closet essentials are: a classic tan trench, a leather jacket, a striped tee, buttery soft blouse, the perfect jeans, a fun bag and comfy shoes (that are functional and cute). You really can’t go wrong with any of the combos above- I already have some pieces but would definitely like to add a colored leather jacket and those polka dot sneakers! I always find that the classic pieces are the ones I wear the most, so buying a little better quality will make them last after years of being worn.

One thing that I don’t touch that much on here is how Thomas and I both have picked up photography through blogging. Neither one of us had ever used a DSLR camera before starting the blog. I saved up and bought my first camera thinking I was going to have these amazing, clear photographs right away. Boy, was I wrong! It was so much harder than I had ever imagined and there was so much to learn! Thomas and I would both watch countless Youtube videos and read photography blogs, trying to learn the basics and grow from there. It’s a learning process and there will always be more to learn, but I’m so proud of where we have come in our photography skills. It’s something that is not only beneficial for the blog, but life in general. We both love capturing images- I love taking pictures of inspirational things and documenting memories, while Thomas enjoys nature and landscape.
Thomas takes almost all of the pictures for Gal Meets Glam, except the occasional home decor pictures and has really mastered the skill of portrait photography. He really is the one who knows what he is doing over here, while I’m still learning from him! With that being said, we are currently working on a post that will cover the basics of photography (mainly for bloggers) and would love to get some of your input so we can cover topics that will be helpful! What types of questions would you guys like us to cover? Is there any specific detail you would like us to elaborate on? Please leave any questions you guys have in the comments below or feel free to send me an email! :)
