Welcome to WhatLydDid!

Hello, I'm (you guessed it), Lyd! I'm 23 and I live in the North West of England. I'm very proud to be Northern, and I like to show off what my little corner of the world has to offer through my What's Up series, which puts the spotlight on Northern towns and attractions.

When I'm not blogging, I love singing, being outdoors, cuddling my big fluffy rescue cat, Monkey, and creating items for my Etsy shop. I love supporting other Etsy sellers, so another series here on my blog is Shop Small, where I choose a category and hunt down treasures from independent creators.

I hope my blog is a positive place, and I'd like every reader to come away having learned something, whether that's which cruelty free lipstick to buy, where to find the best tearooms in the North West, or techniques they can use to work on their wellbeing.
