i know i am late to this thread but she's on my bookmarks but hardly checks on her. So i did a little googling and it got me this

http://vmacandcheese.com/2012/12/19/the-man-behind-gal-meets-glam/

is that her husband Thomas? he looks okay, maybe kinda cute, of course compared to PP's husband. I think they look cute together. it's nice to read how much he support her blogging. but of course he is freakin' rich!!! sure he can support her.

and oh, this video too

he listed "quirky" as one of his favorite websites. as in jessica quirk's "lifestyle" blog? roflrofl

I had to delurk. This girl is stunning. Not over done like a 45 year old divorcee. The make up is great. Gosh- such an opposite feel from some other big fashion bloggers right now.

I love, love Julia. I have followed her since 2011, and it's been really cool to watch her grow and mature. I like how she includes some information on her personal life with Thomas instead of just pictures of outfits. She genuinely seems like a sweet girl. However, I loved, loved her with the blonde ombré; I don't really care for the light brown hair.

she is gorgeous and for the most part dresses well. cuppy should be concerned, julia seems like the most potential rival for her. 

As Boxed-cupcakes and Shredded Chambray (aka C&C) continues to spiral out of control and hopefully into oblivion, Julia Engel is really stepping up her game, and I agree that she could have the best chance at the aspirational fashion/lifestyle spotlight.

Julia is beautiful, and has an original, age appropriate, flattering and fashionable sense of style. I like that she is not stick thin and really knows how to dress for her figure.

I'll admit she bothered me when I first looked at her blog over the summer. I thought she was just another rich Pink Peonies type who married into even more money. I couldn't figure out why else she would get married so young, especially considering she is not overtly religious (she could very well be devout something or another, and just doesn't share it on her blog, which is totally fine). And her gallivanting all over Italy while mostly just making me jealous, also bothered my with all the "OMG eating dinner 8pm is so late. Italians are WEIRD" stuff. But I am starting to think that she and Thomas are really cute together. They seem like they are both kind of dorky, she just happens to be gorgeous AND a nerd.

I used to like her more – until I watched one of her videos. She came across as SO DUMB. And vain. And not very mature or polished or sophisticated.

 

It's amazing the perceptions you can form in your head just by seeing someone's photos, and how they can completely change when you see them in person or see them in action.

Yikes. I just watched her video on how to style a tunic, and it was probably the most awkward 1 min and 30 seconds of my life. Is there any life in those wide eyes? And the weird pauses! "The too-nick [pause] is long [pause]." At the very least, it comes off as unrehearsed, or as if she's reading the words off a cardboard sign behind the camera.

By the end, I was wincing every time she said the word tunic.

This exactly. Julia is beautiful, and actually seems really nice. She also seems pretty intelligent, but then i watched a video a long time ago on her blog and cringed the entire time. Completely changed my perception!

this seems like a terrible idea: 

if you're going to put stemware on a bottom shelf, at least put some kind of barrier along the front so the glasses don't get whacked by a broom, foot, animal, etc. maybe i'm a klutz but this just seems unsafe to me.

why do these two barely out of college marrieds have like a dozen each wine and champagne glasses, anyways? did she register for a china pattern and full formal dining set, too? so sorry, so not part of a super rich family.

I have followed Julia since she started her blog in 2011. Sorry to say this, but it appears girlfriend has let herself go. This was Julia when I started following her in 2011: http://galmeetsglam.com/2011/08/outfit-for-a-wedding-lbd/

 

and this is julia now…http://galmeetsglam.com/

 

I loved, loved her with blonde hair. Now she just looks older, and like a typical rich wife who can buy whatever she wants. Her earlier photos were youthful, and she was in great shape. I liked Julia better when she mixed her expensive pieces with obtainable fashions for the masses. I guess she missed the memo that the economy sucks and not everyone can eat vegan donuts and shop all day.

well that's an unfair comparison. one is a day time look and the other is a wedding look. and so she's not the same weight as she was when she was ~19? I wouldn't mind having her current body….

…. I don't see what you see qualifies as "let herself go".
