It was a fabulous event on Sunday meeting with other Theo Paphitis business award winners in Birmingham. Great to hear the insight of Mike Pickles of the Really Useful Products and Holly Tucker, the co founder of, Not On The High Street.


A yearly seminar held for all of Theo Paphitis' award winners in the ICC. Supplied with plenty of opportunities to discuss ideas with his partners from Rymans, Robert Dyas, Ilaw and many more.


The sandwiches and spread was lovely.


Thank you.

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.

Footwear Today is one f the world's oldest footwear magazines for the industry. Packed with trends, forecasts and industry knowldege.


When I was approached by them after winning my prime minister endorsed award, I was pleased to hear that they wanted to feature my work as according to them it doesn't just relate to my footwear work, but doing good elsewhere!

This really is an honour and to be honest, there are far more inspiring and aspiring women out there than myself. Though none the less, last night, I received an invite from Pinky Linani OBE last night to join her invitation only and exclusive, Women of the Future Network.


The Women of the Future Network (previously Inspirational Women’s Network) is an exclusive network of high potential and high achieving UK women. The network was created in 2007 and includes some of the UK’s most pioneering and talented women. *Thier words - not mine!


Thank you for this.

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!

What a lovely surprise to have been told that my shoes were seen in Heat Magazine after Jessica of Hollyoks wore them to the British Soap Awards!



Looking wonderful as previosuly said, Jessica certainly did Milly J Shoes Proud!



Not only this, but Jessica was also filmed on air for ITV prime time television talking about her Milly J Shoes, once again at the Soap Awards.



Great lady!

Milly J Shoes is proud to say that it made the 50th edition of the seriously cool and alternative, Pinstriping and Kustom Graphics Magazine which is sold across 18 countries!



Covering a full, three page feature spread, including other Milly J bits and bobs, Milly J Shoes is in good company with some truly talented artists. From sculptors to tattoo artists and burlesque artists, this editorial has put Milly J Shoes' work in a great light! Eeven receiving a favourite tweet on the fan page from Silicon Valley's, Dave McClure!



Unfortunately my images do not do this very glossy and great quality magazine justice.



Please click the images in the right column for larger, readable versions.



I hope you enjoy what I have to say.

Last year Jessica Ellis of Hollyoaks was unable to wear her Milly J's at the British Soap Awards due to a dress malfunction. So I was thrilled when she contacted me saying she was rocking to go in her shoes especially created for her over the weekend.



These were the shoes with working TVs depicting her Hollyoaks journey and character of Tegan Lomax I uploaded. Reversing the act of viewers watching her on TV, instead, she could watch herself on her little soap box! This was Milly J Shoes' first red carpet and I must say as a small, growing business, Ellis' generosity of promoting them was much appreciated, even bagging her one of the best dressed of the night.



Looking very Glam Rock I must say... Mark Bolan, eat your heart out!



The host, Philip Schofield celebrated 10 years of hosting the popular show which is televised on British screens this Thursday!



Look out for more Milly J news very soon!
