Hello all! Last week saw the London launch party of Great.ly which I helped organise and style. It took place at the organic pizza restaurant Story Deli in Shoreditch. The pizzas and brownies there are seriously the best I have tasted in London!
Great.ly is an online shopping site that connects tastemakers (bloggers) to makers. It is a platform that hosts tastemaker shops, selling a curated collection of homewares and accessories, from a chosen pool of makers. This is the brainchild of the talented CEO Sarah Bryden-Brown. Together with her wonderful team, Sarah has launched the site in the States and now London, followed by Stockholm and Paris.
Above is the photo of the London party:

I don’t normally show photos of food on this blog but since that pizza at Story Deli was so delicious, I felt compelled to show you why.
Have a wonderful week all!
