As a mum I've always put myself last on the list and just made do for a number of years, with very little selfcare but I've come to realise it is very important to our wellbeing to prioritise ourselves on that list!  Since discovering Shine On I began investing a lot more in myself, and have really grown and feel so much more comfortable in my own skin. Along with that my confidence has grown. I am really honoured to have been asked to be a reviewer for Shine On. 

I am 46 years old and live in Tauranga with my husband Steve, and our 2 teenage boys Jakob (17) and Isaac (13). I also have a stepson Nathan (30) who lives in Auckland. He hates calling me his (wicked) stepmother in fact really the only thing wicked about me is my sense of humour! 

I work as a Customer Services Manager here in Tauranga, and prior to that when my boys were younger, I used to manage and also run my own e-commerce businesses from home, so I'm kind of in my element with social media and promoting products that I believe in!

I love being part the Shine On community, the kindness and caring here is so uplifting in a world that is often so unforgiving. I'm really looking forward to showcasing some of the wonderful clothes that Shine On has to offer.

Thanks so much
