My name is Ashley and I’m a 28-year-old born and raised 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 and movie industries, and in this blog, I’ll discuss these facts and much more. From the local hot topics to the national pop culture news, Glitzburgh will be covering it all.

Glitzburgh has been mentioned and/or quoted in the Post Gazette and Tribune Review newspapers, and Ashley Boynes-Shuck (Glitzburgh blogger) has been voted Best Blogger in Pittsburgh, Who to Follow on Twitter for 2010, and one of Pittsburgh’s Top 40 Under 40 for 2011. She has met and interviewed many celebrities from Joe Mangianello to Alyssa Milano, Tim Gunn, NSync, Jessica Simpson, Tyson Beckford, Cindy Crawford, Nicole Scherzinger, and more,  has been in the audience at the Oprah Winfrey show, tweeted with Oprah Winfrey herself (not to mention tons of other celebrities including Justin Timberlake, Ellen DeGeneres, Sherri Sherpherd, Anderson Cooper and members of the Real Housewives casts) and, on the side is working on a novel in addition to doing walk-on acting and extra work in locally filmed movies including 2011’s Abduction starring Taylor Lautner.

A die-hard Steelers fan, Ashley loves fashion and literature, movies and TV, and doing work in the health and wellness field. Best known for her inspirational self-help and advocacy work for chronic illness, she is also known online as Arthritis Ashley and has been quoted in Health Monitor and The Rheumatologist magazines as well as speaking before Congress for arthritis advocacy.

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


ALSO: Welcoming aboard Glitzburgh “Intern Extraordinaire” Natalie DeBarto, a student at Robert Morris University. Stay tuned for Natalie’s bio, coming soon.

    As a fashion blogger covering Pittsburgh, thought you would appreciate an invite to the annual Global Girl Gifts open house, which recently was featured on Pittsburgh Today Live.
