Ashley Shine

It was important for me to be recognised among a group of influencers and bloggers, because often people don’t really understand what we do – and I can forgive people thinking that we’re a bunch of girls taking selfies and photos of food, but in reality I’m part of an empowered network of fashion-lovers, entrepreneurs and hobbyists who have very diverse backgrounds and objectives, but a common passion to communicate.
So first I want to thank all of my supporters and my network of influencers and bloggers for their undying love, and also thank the gang at, who were the sponsors of the event, as well as the judges for awarding me a place in the top 10.
The judges asked some really great questions as part of the competition entry, which was a great opportunity to tell my story – I have posted it all below – enjoy!
