Another champers? The Awards drinkies!

Muddy Stiletto Awards

And so it came to pass that your faithful correspondent got absolutely splattered at the Muddy Awards drinks, watched by a stuffed hare with a gun and and 30 of the best businesses in Oxon & Bucks. As you do.

Getting ready on the day, my, er, incredible natural beauty meant that I needed hardly any assistance at all – just, you know, the four – FOUR! – make up holdalls that the lovely MUA Lauren Wheeler brought with her, below. (BTW, can totally recommend Lauren, she did an amazing job on the Muddy visage/ hair in under an hour, and she zips all over the place from her Bicester base).


So on the day we had… 30 winners, 3 crates of champers, the only day of the week it didn’t pee with rain and one leopard-print jumpsuit that looked a lot better in my head than it did on the day.

A really major thank you and mwah to Paul Wilkinson – multi national award-winning portrait and wedding photographer (and now author!) who still finds time to come over and be official Muddy snapper.

Nothing more to report but a whopping hangover and these lovely photos of the day. For the full list of Muddy Awards winners 2016, take a gander here and go and see what all the fuss is about!
