It was an honour to be invited as an ambassador for Norwich High School For Girls earlier this week. The small team of mentors teamed together for the Inspiring Females initiative founded by the school's head teacher and Siobhan Ecke. For the first time, it also comprised of men who made up the so called inspring people within the area.
However, it wasn't about us on this day. We spent the afternnon in mentor pairs and spent the day with up to ten, 14 year olds each. Guiding them through how they would start their own social enterprises. Looking into the seed stages, finaces, marketing, operations and so on. My team came up with a technology app and I was impressed to see how tech savvy they all were.
It was truly an inspiring day for all!

I am delighted to announce that I am a current prestigious, Drapers Footwear Awards finalist in the category of Footwear Designer of the year.
I do not have high hopes for my win, as I am up against some seriously well known footwear individuals and brands. Some of the finalists include Louboutin for Premium Footwear Brand of the Year to Skechers, Cheaney Shoes, Fit Flop, Clarks and many more!
The glitzy award ceremony is held in the summer in London where the winners will be crowned!

The Wedding Show at the Norfolk Showground is the biggest bridal event in the area. Held over two days, the weekend saw 150 top bridal suppliers and reatilers come together to meet with the enthusiastic wedding public.
It was the first Showground event that Milly J Shoes and Bridal Shoes By Milly J had attended. We were inundated with visitors to our exhibit and so it was well worth the time!

Last year, I was delighted to be approached by two local ladies who had won awards in the prestigious, EDP Bride awards. They wanted to put together an editiorial including local bridal suppliers who had also won awards within the ceremony. So I was thrilled, as I had not applied to win an award!
Karen and Emily brought together a Fauvism shoot that was bursting with local creativity and talent with me designing and making the shoes.
The shot went to print, including in Your Norfolk Wedding and Bride Magazine.
