About Us

Launched in 2019, HLN provides a one-stop-shop for women in our region to consume everything from fashion to food, careers and challenging topics.

We’re inclusive, we’re real and we want to showcase and inspire women across our website, weekly email and social channels.

We pride ourselves on our integrity, working with brands that we know our readers will love. In return? Brands that work with us have access to a combination of PR and marketing specialists, skilled writers, social media gurus and best-in-class photographers to bring their brand to life for our engaged audience of women in the North East.

A message from our Founder and Managing Editor, Laura Kingston

High Life North is about celebrating women in the region. We all have different circumstances, different challenges and different situations. This digital magazine is about showcasing inspiring females, providing advice on careers, fashion, beauty, interiors, health and wellbeing. As well as our top recommendations on where to eat, drink and explore in the North East.

It sounds very broad but we know all women are multi-faceted and our ethos is that women shouldn’t be pigeon-holed into one category.

Every week we feature real women, with real voices. Women who are achieving great things, driving positive change, or inspiring others.


Team HLN

HLN is made up of our in-house team, our Experts in Residence and our contributors who work hard every week to bring you engaging, different and interesting content.
