About




Girl in the North is a lifestyle and pregnancy/parenting blog based in the North East of England.

I'm Katy, a thirty-something twin mum and I started writing a very early version of Girl in the North over fifteen years ago. Having grown through life with me, the blog has featured everything from fashion and beauty, to events and reviews all whilst documenting my life.

I live in Durham in the North East countryside with my husband, who travels the UK working in restoration. Day to day I work for myself and our family business in marketing and events and get to work with some amazing brands and people.

After getting married in 2016, my husband and I found out we were expecting not one but two babies. Eight months later our identical twin girls, Edie and Mabel were born. Girl in the North is an outlet for my daily rambles and my triumphs and tribulations of being a working twin mum.
