Hi there, I’m Laura!
I’ve been a regional and national journalist for eight years, having written news and lifestyle features for publications including Metro, Daily Mail and The Sun as well as local newspapers in Leamington and Stratford.
North Warwickshire has always been home, but I regularly make the trip South for work, play and the coffee shops!
Now I’m dedicated to bringing the best of the county and West Mids to my discerning, fun-loving readers.
Muddy Stilettos first tottered into the world in Summer 2011 as a bit of fun for the founder, Hero Brown over in Bucks & Oxon. The idea was a simple one: to write a witty but indispensable local guide to the very best restaurants, walks, boutiques, day trips, hotels, interiors and events (whilst also perking up her social life). Along with Muddy Stilettos Warwickshire there are now 26 Muddy counties, all with a focus on the quirky, unique, cool and interesting; so no advertorial, no PR guff and a genuine, upbeat honesty. As well as being an indispensable local guide, it’s also a platform for local businesses to get their message across and for us to see what an amazing and creative county we live in.
This is the Muddy Mantra, so you know what to expect from the site:
