A big thank you goes out to Precious', Foluke Akinlose MBE and Jessica Huie MBE for last night's event held at the Biritsh Library. Filling a room with eager entrepreneurs willing to engage in Jessica's experience within the PR sector. From designers to social housing professionals, it was an event buzzing with inspiration. Followed of course by the all important nibbles at the end!
The British Library is one of the issuers of one of my awards.

It was a treat to be contacted by the editors of Germany's leading equestrian magazine, Cavallo, wanting to feature my Ladies Day shoes this month, alongside their usual horsey news! You may also remember seeing my shoes featured in Horse and Hound a few months ago too.
The Ladies Day Shoes are inspired by Ascot and the flamboyant hats of the day, only despicting this into footwear.

Thank you to all those who took the time to vote for me in this year's prestigious, Footwear Industry Awards! Thanks to all of you, the footwear and fashion establishment have chosen me as one of their top 5 footwear businesses in two categories. I am a finalist for:
Fashion Brand of the Year
Footwear Designer of the Year.
I amazed with how the tightly locked industry chooses me as a one women business who designs, markerts and hand creates all her shoes herself. Being up against large teams of well known brands is indeed humbling.
Once again, thank you. Results in soon!

I was very excited indeed to have recieved a ticket to be the guest of the British Footwear Association for this year's Drapers Footwear Awards.
You may have remembered me a few months ago reaching out for sponsorship opportunities to attend this prestigious event. I was very flattered to have received a few sponsorship offers, not least of all from Germany's giant footwear brand, Deichmann. However, as it is my first Drapers event, I think it only right that I accepted the request of the BFA, particularly as I am a member of theirs.
I also received a scrumptious delivery of handmade cookies, sent to all finalist of the Drapers Footwear Awards by Drapers. They were soon gobbled down!
Thank you to the BFA for the ticket and Drapers for the cookies and I look forward to spending and evening with you!

So pleased to announce that her efforts have once again been noticed by Theo Paphitis. Two years ago, Milly J Shoes won its first business award from the man himself. That was indeed a grand moment and Milly J became one of Theo's, SBS Award Winners. SBS awards small business owners and is a great platform for businesses to gain the support from the famous ex, Dragon's Den Dragon and business tycoon. This time, Milly was alerted that Theo has now chosen her as this month's, Business of the Month. This is great, as it means Milly J Shoes is still on the tycoon's radar! Thank you to Mr. P!

I was approached by BBC 3 Counties Radio to chat on Thursday the 5th, March 2015 to chat on their lunchtime show.
It will be a great opportunity to hear me talk about my inspirations and how my shoes have come to win the latest award. I will try as much as possible to bring the shoes to life via my voice, much like a radio chef does with their delcicious dishes!
