About Me

Welcome to Ginger Me Glam!

My name is Natalie “Kitty” Merola, and I’m happy to see you here on my blog.


After graduating from Florida International University in Miami, Florida, my husband Elias, our English Bulldog Rocky, and I decided to pack up and leave for a new adventure in Austin, Texas. Back home, I worked at The Miami Herald and PBS, where I learned all about social media management, website management and how to shoot at various locations. (Fun fact: I started a blog for my capstone project, but I deleted it. I had no idea where to start and deleted it. It’s funny to look back and see the dots and connecting them while I grow here!) Elias and I have a super rad toddler now, and we enjoy singing along to all of our favorite movies, cartoons and nursery rhymes. Ever since he was born, he’s always been with us for fashion shoots. I feel like the mom in “Mean Girls”, but seriously, I am the cool mom. There’s no way to sugar coat it :)

I like to stay centered and practice yoga daily. And just because I stay zen, this doesn’t mean that I’m not a fan of hitting up the Vans Warped Tour from time to time. :) Music, art, style, food and culture set my soul on fire in all the right kinds of ways. There is beauty in all of us, and it’s through the hard times that every aspect has helped define who I am today. My latest and favorite thing to do for the last couple of years has been to film for my blog. I’ve developed my own style and focus on Unboxing the Glam, Red Hot Thoughts and Tips for Women on the Go. It’s fun to share my two cents with the world, and learn about what connects us through the things we clothe and surround ourselves in everyday.


I blog both personally and professionally. Although Ginger Me Glam is my own personal way to express my #redhotthoughts and share my favorite things with you, I’m available for sponsorship opportunities and regularly partner with brands primarily on my YouTube and Instagram. My husband Elias also works regularly with brands over on his automotive and mens blog, Rev Match Media. Here’s a little bit more about our professional side.
