About

Welcome to the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2017!

Muddy Stilettos is the UK’s leading regional lifestyle blog, with over 100,000 readers and a social following of 50,000 across 18 English counties. The blog is the ‘urban guide to the countryside’ for intelligent, fun-loving women who live outside the metropolis, but who want to be in the know for the cool, quirky and unmissable things to do where they live – from destination pubs to romantic getaways, cool kids theatre to pop-up supper clubs.

The Muddy Stilettos Awards are a natural extension of the blog, dedicated to searching out the most unique and inspiring local lifestyle businesses across 27 categories. And unlike many other Awards, they are totally FREE to enter, from start to finish.

Muddy Stilettos is the most influential lifestyle blog in the region, Best Arts & Culture Finalist at the UK National Blog Awards 2017 and currently Finalist in the Kent Digital Awards 2017.

The blog, launched initially in Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire by national journalist Hero Brown, now runs across 18 English counties. Edited in Kent by Ali Agnew who has been a lifestyle journo for fifteen years working on national glossy magazines, Muddy Stilettos acts 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 but don’t have the desire to wear Alice bands and welly boots every day. 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 most genuinely brilliant, unique, quirky, 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. See our full list of categories and please support your favourites.
