Great.ly – The London launch at Story Deli.

Tastemakers-Great.ly-Little-BigBell.jpg

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.

  2. Hi Geraldine! I wish I could have made it to this wonderful event, what a beautiful setting for the London launch of Great.ly.

    I absolutely love your shop on the site, it perfectly reflects your amazing taste. Love the way you have styled these different vignettes above too – you have such a natural talent for styling that looks just perfect.

    Hope you have a lovely week, thank you for sharing – although the last image of the Pizza was too much – it’s 10am and my tummy is rumbling at my desk! See you soon, Louisa x
