Back in Berry

Hi friends...I am BACK! I know it's been awhile since the last G&G update. Almost 2 years to be exact. To be honest - I got kind of caught up in life, trying to make this whole blog thing perfect, and I became a little overwhelmed. Everything is not always going to be picture perfect (as much as bloggers make it seem to be) real talk a lot of time and work really goes into all of this. I'll admit, I got caught up in it and I was just feeling ahhh.
Coming into the new year I decided that the root of all of my resolutions ended in balance (balancing life, friends, work, fitness, blog?). My personality tends to go pretty hard in certain directions and I'm working to find a happy medium with all things that I love...including G&G. Going back to some of my very first posts it's fun looking back at early NYC life/my personal style. Hoping to continue again this time around.

Pretty much Year 1 NYC -  Go go go always, Year 2 NYC -  Comfortable VERY routine based, Year 3 NYC +  Time for the balancing act.
I really loved Glossy&Glitzy when I first started - I was always branching out with my style, trying new things, and really always exploring this amazing city checking off my most see/go to places. So this time I am taking a more balanced approach for Glitzy&Glossy. Yeppp I know different name...I also learned that putting a domain on a card that gets stolen means you lose the auto renewel option as well. Sooo that brings us to Glitzy&Glossy (G&G). I hope you all enjoy my small corner of the world wide web G&G. Let the adventures begin!

Life Skim Version: These past couple of years NYC has grown into my official home away from home, I've learned a thing or two about that whole surviving life in your 20s (good friends + vino y'all), Chef V + pinterest dominates the kitchen, I travel to TX all the time still rollin with that LDR, learned a lot about shoes, had a few downs, mostly ups, and I've met some pretty amazing people.

OK so back to the style/fashion side of my blog - The star of this look is definitely the boots...I have three pair (Black high heel and black mid block) and this berry merlot color has got to be my favorite. This season I along with the rest of the world have been obsessed with over the knee boots or the OTKs ;) At first I wasn't sure if the color would be too much of a pop, but surprisingly I've been able to work in a lot of different looks with these. I found mine in Queens at a Macy's Backstage. This store has has SO many great finds - I never know what will hop in my shopping bag! I've also worn this simple grey coat a few times and it was such a steal during all the holiday sales. My cozy black fur stole I bought from a resale shop awhile back and added it to give it more of a glam feel. Plus it actually does keep me very warm. That little stole has had such a great life with me, I love adding it to plain jackets or draped outside a handbag. Something about it makes me feel (YAS glam). 

Those who know me and my snapchat, know that coffee time is one of my favorite parts of the day. I've been so good making my own thanks to a fancy new coffee machine I got for Christmas (thanks boyfrenn). Sometimes though it is nice to take a break and venture down the street - I had no idea Stumptown Coffee was so close to my office! Very happy to know this along with Chalait. I used to go to the old West Village spot in the summer after my morning runs. Now this is so much closer to work/home. Yay. Y'all get ready for all my #basic cafe pics as well - NYC is home to some of the very best!

Happy to be back and I hope you all enjoy following along. Also props to the amazing photography by Griffin Ungar. She's great - Check her out here.
