Written by Haddenham resident, Hero Brown, Muddy Stilettos is a blog that highlights exciting things to do and places to visit across across Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. It focus on the interests to young, well-heeled women.
Hero has just launched her second local Awards scheme, looking to reward creativity and great service across 25 categories (up from 20 last year) including Best Fashion Boutique, Children's Shop, Boutique Hotel, Florist, Day Spa, Beauty Salon, Destination Pub, Restaurant, Deli, Café and Gift Shop among others.
As Hero Brown, says, "I started the Muddy Awards last year because I could see that so many brilliant businesses not getting the exposure they deserved. These Awards offer a fantastic opportunity for businesses to improve their profile and for locals to say thank you to the plucky high street businesses they love."
Nominations began on Monday 10th March, and visitors to the Muddy Stilettos Award website can vote for their favourites. A shortlist will be published on 25th April and the winners will be announced on 23rd May.
