At the end of April 2019, we asked our EAZ fans to vote for us in the Muddy Stilettos Awards.
For those of you that don’t already know, Muddy Stilettos are well known for being the ‘urban guide to the countryside’. From best bars and beauticians to interiors and glamping. They cover all things cool and quirky so it was only fitting we put ourselves up for a vote.
Needless to say, after a few (long) weeks we were super excited to announce we had been nominated as Best Newcomer in Cornwall.
As votes were being counted and I, Mrs Elf became more excited (and an anxious wreck) we were overwhelmed to have made it into a completely different category -  The Best Children’s Business!!
A few tears were shed (okay, ALOT) afterall, I am a mum of four and any parent will tell you, raising humans is not easy, let alone a tribe of them and building a business.
So I continued the daily routine of school/nursery pick ups, clubs, play dates, housekeeping and trying my best to keep the 6 of us (plus our woof) alive and well, at the back of my mind, I was on ‘award countdown mode’.
The fact I had made it into such an incredible category and through to the finals for my county was a dream come true.
But it didn’t end there...
...WE WON!!!
Elf and Zip are the proudest winners for The Best Children’s Business in Cornwall.
We as a family hold this high in our hearts. I told my mini me’s I’d try my absolute everything to win it and we did.
I’d had never had a chance if it wasn’t for all of our EAZ fans, so from the bottom of my heart -
