Testing, Testing, 1,2,3 …

Testing, testing, 1,2,3. Bookmark this page for the future.   You’ll be glad you did.

Allow me to introduce myself …

My name is Ashley and this is Glitzburgh.

You’ll learn much more about me in the days, weeks, and months to come….but for now, just know to expect my input on the entertainment industry, celebrity gossip, local & national events, shows, and happenings … and much more in the realms of the arts, entertainment, film, fashion, literature, television, local and national news – plus whatever else I feel like rambling about.


For your entertainment: Just a Pittsburgh girl in a paparazzo’s world!


Welcome to Glitzburgh – About the Blogger:

24 Mar

My name is Ashley and I’m a 26-year-old young gal living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – a fact that I used to bemoan, but that I now truly love. Pittsburgh has been blossoming in the areas of technology, environmentalism, and, most of all, the entertainment industry, and in this blog, I’ll discuss these facts and much more. From the local hot topics to the national ones, I’ll be writing about stories in the news and my personal thoughts and opinions on current happenings in the entertainment and news media…as well as whatever else I feel like writing abut. So, I may as well let you all have a glimpse into the complicated being that is, me.

I am, among other things: a blogger, aspiring author, sometime model, fashionista-on-a-budget, autoimmune illness sufferer, pug-and-parakeet mama, lover-not-a-fighter, writer, once-aspiring fashion designer, Starbucks consumer, Justin Timberlake fangirl, Lady Gaga fanatic, Steelers fan for life, Sex and the City lover, comma queen, yoga-doer, gluten-free girl, bookworm, new media nerd, wine-drinker, TV-and-film junkie, fan of dorky glasses, appreciator of Barbie, vampires, the Victorian era, and all things Italian, fan of flea markets and vintage stores, and guilty reader of tabloids.

I own a home with my boyfriend in Pittsburgh, and love him, along with my family and friends dearly. I work for a nonprofit by day (whom I also blog for) and am also a freelance writer on the side. I’m interested in sociology, spirituality and theology, love inspiring quotes, love animals (especially dogs), and cannot pass up a good cup of tea. I love taking pictures and even like having my photo taken. I adore fashion (did I mention that yet?) I love a good chick flick as much as an awesome superhero movie and I am a bit of a geek at heart. I tear up at sad commercials, happy endings, romantic scenes, and inspiring stories … and I am as corny as they come. If I do say so myself, I’m not readily able to be stereotyped, nor do I appreciate being prejudged or pigeonholed. So, I hope you’ll all enjoy reading my blog as well as getting to know me along the way.

Basically, I’m just me – a little odd and quirky, but with a heart of gold. I hate liars and close-minded people. I love dogs and shoes. And Oprah. I’m borderline-obsessed with all things artsy, and with the entertainment industry in general. From high-brow literature to low-brow reality television, I’m in. And, likewise, I’m here to blog about it.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. Welcome to Glitzburgh.
