angel in the north is a lifestyle blog with a focus on Yorkshire, in the UK, where I live.
I have a soft spot for the unique, quirky and imaginative (but glamour and grandeur is hard to resist too!).
I love fashion, but not spending a lot on it. Designers make my lust list, but my budget doesn’t usually extend beyond the high street. Recently I’ve been learning a lot more about customising and jewellery-making.
I’m all for crafting, DIY-ing and upcycling and share my creations with the world through my popular step-by-step tutorials. That is, I share them when they work out. Any unsuccessful projects, I pretend never happened :)
I have something of a property obsession. I can be a bit of a liability when behind the wheel because I’m preoccupied nosing into people’s living rooms. I dream of this house I’ll probably never have with super high ceilings, huge windows, a library you need a ladder to access, acres of land and a sea view. Oh, and the converted barn in France, of course.
My husband and I are currently in the process of renovating our suburban semi from top to bottom. You can follow our progress – warts and all - here.
I love to travel. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to some of the world’s most exquisite destinations, but lately we’ve decided to get a bit sensible. I dislike the word ‘staycation’, but looking to spend less has forced us to take a closer look at the country we were blessed to be born in. We’ve taken up camping, favouring isolated cliff-top sites – as long as they have hook ups to allow you to bring electricity to your tent. For the GHDs, you see.
I love mojitos and I have a Pinterest addiction.
Sponsorship and product reviews
Lovely readers: I plough a lot of hours into this little corner of the world wide web, and a sponsored post here and there helps me to do so. I’m sorry if you don’t like to see them on blogs you read, but I only ever work with companies I think you might be interested in. I also make a point of writing all content myself, and making it as interesting and fitting as possible. I’ll always add a disclosure at the bottom of a post if I’ve been paid to write or mention something.
Advertisers: I welcome enquiries about product or experience reviews and giveaways, and sponsored posts are also available. If you’re considering any of that you probably want to know more about the blog, its history, philosophy and readers. Luckily, I’ve put all that together and more in my nifty, one-page media guide. I’m afraid I don’t accept guest posts because I like to write everything myself.
If you have any other questions, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
