I’m Lisa Valentine, she/her. I’m in my late-thirties and live near Manchester, England, with my husband, two grown-up daughters, and our three cats. Away from my day job in Media and Comms, this blog, formerly That British Betty, is my passion project, providing me with a creative outlet since 2014.
This unpolished, unfiltered lifestyle blog continues to be a way for me to document my adventures. This can range from UK travel, recipes, general life updates, the books I read, days out, Northern living, sustainable finds, budget fashion, and foodie reviews to more honest, intimate conversations and think pieces.
My life has been a wild ride so far and you’ll find snippets of my personal, honest experiences peppered throughout my sporadic posts. Basically, I’m a born and bred Northerner, an oversharing INFJ who likes cooking, plants, charity shops, all things rockabilly, and grew up reading way past my bedtime.
