About

Girl in the North is an interiors, DIY and family lifestyle blog based in the North East of England.

I’m Danielle, thirty-something and I live in the North East with my daughter Alice and husband Andy. I’ve recently taken over from Katy who has developed this blog over an impressive seventeen years. The blog has featured everything from fashion and beauty, motherhood and twin life, to events and reviews. I hope to continue to the hard work and produce some great content for you.

I’m relatively new to blogging and over the past two years I’ve been documenting my life through Instagram. Sharing tales as a new mother, talking openly about mental health and post natal depression and posting a lot about my house. I have a real passion for interiors and trying to create looks on a budget. My husband and I love a bit of DIY and the satisfaction of knowing we’ve done things ourselves.
After getting married in August 2016 I needed something to pour my energy into after planning our wedding for two years, at the time we lived in a new build we had bought a couple of years previously and we really enjoyed doing it up and creating a lovely home for the two of us. In March 2016 I was featured in Your Home magazine and the interiors obsession began.
Girl in the North is a blog which will hopefully provide inspiration, give me an outlet for my daily rambles and triumphs and show our family life here in the beautiful North East.
