Muddy Stilettos is the most influential lifestyle blog in the region, awarded Most Innovative Blog in the UK 2015 and Best Arts & Culture Finalist at the UK National Blog Awards 2017 with thousands of subscribers.
The blog launched initially in Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire, written by ex Red, Marie Claire and Independent on Sunday journalist Hero Brown, it now runs across 19 English counties, acting as the ultimate ‘urban guide to the countryside’ – a witty, informative guide to the very best food, walks, boutiques, day trips, hotels, interiors and events for those who live outside London and are equally as happy in gumboots or Gucci.
An uncompromising commitment to independence, quality and high editorial standards lies at the heart of Muddy Stilettos, which is why readers feel so loyal to the blog and act on its recommendations.
The same principle runs through The Muddy Stilettos Awards – our desire is to find and celebrate the genuinely brilliant, unique, quirky and exciting businesses in the area. Our category structure of 27 lifestyle businesses means that small plucky companies that often fall through the cracks of other competitions are given their chance to shine.
