All About Caroline

GIRL ABOUT BRADFORD

 

I am from Bradford which is a wonderful city in the heart of West Yorkshire. I was fortunate to have been born here, to parents who are also from Bradford so it’s safe to say it’s in my blood! I’ve lived here my whole life, went to the University of Bradford and have started multiple businesses based right here. I live with my boyfriend, Keil – We met on a night out in the city 16 years ago. From a vibrant and ever-changing city centre to the surrounding areas of the Aire Valley (where I live) to further afield, Bradford has so much to offer for visitors and locals too. One of the things which continues to amaze me is you can go from the Victorian buildings of the city centre to within no time at all be out in the countryside. I am so proud to be a Bradford lass and it’s an honour to be the Girl About Bradford where I can help to share all the incredible things happening here to help anyone who comes to the Bradford district create some amazing memories.

10 Random Facts About Me

 

    1. Born in London to an Irish father and a Geordie mum, I moved to Liverpool when I was six. I have watched the city go from bleak recession era in the late 80s to a renaissance, taking back its place as a northern powerhouse! So effectively I’m a plastic scouser, but that means I choose Liverpool and it didn’t choose me.
    2. I work in marketing and my day job is managing digital and online marketing for Liverpool John Moores University, promoting Liverpool (and LJMU) as a destination city. A big focus is promoting experiences and making memories there too – so a good fit for Girl About!
    3. I met Girl About Sheffield (Vicky) when I was studying English at Sheffield Uni. We both worked in The Cavendish – a student pub – bonded over music and danced in the rain at Glastonbury.
    4. I am the oldest of four girls. Two of my sisters, Zoe and Sophie, live in Liverpool with their kids and Kerri’s based in London. We all have a dark sense of humour and when we’re all together it can get quite raucous. They tell me I get posher the drunker I get.
    5. I helped launch a successful (and award-winning!) street food brand with my partner Luca – Fritto Italian Street Food. Give us a follow and discover what a panzerotti is! @fritto_uk
    6. If you didn’t guess from #5, my other half is Italian and keeps us well fed with his passion for cooking, especially pizzas. As well as opening my eyes (and mouth?! ????) to Italian culture we have explored lots of gorgeous places in Italy.
    7. In 2016 we brought our little boy into the world, so I am mum to a beautiful three-year-old called Oliver. He is my main sidekick on all Liverpool-based adventures and a bit of an Instagram star in his own right, thanks to his dad.
    8. I love to travel (who doesn’t?) I’m a big fan of Airbnb and we’ve stayed in some great spaces, most recently in Sicily – which is my new favourite holiday destination! I like quirky and cute places, and good food is our no1 requirement on all trips (no big surprise there!)
    9. I have a titanium rod in my back, fused to my spine. It was put there when I was 16 to help correct scoliosis and was a pretty major event for my teenage-self but definitely made me who I am today (figuratively and literally!)
    10. I LOVE CHRISTMAS. The excuse to be cosy, eat lots of good food and enjoy time with family and friends is just too wonderful. It’s often loaded with a lot of stress in the run-up but once that out of office is on, I am all-out festive and cannot wait!
