On 17th March 2018 we hosted our very first event: Ladies-who-Brunch.
Held at the Offley Works Canteen - a wonderful, hidden gem in South London in the old Sharwood Pickle Factory. In the kitchen were a group of chefs from all over the world, each with their own story and journey. Jessica and her team are really passionate about fresh,
seasonal ingredients and the menu was designed to reflect the best of now.
Our guests braved the second Beast from the East to join us for this special event. The room was buzzing as ladies found their must meet cards and began to make the real life connections we see happening on our channels everyday. A company in common, a shared love of neon, a familiar postcode or less than seven degrees separation had the room excitedly chatting away.
Following a welcome message from our founder Emma Tattersall, guests took their seats and tucked into turmeric yogurt with stewed rhubarb and pomegranate seeds, homemade granola, fresh sourdough loaf with salted butter and homemade jam. Next on the table was Shakshuka with a fresh avocado, dukkah and lime salad and dollops of seasoned creme fraiche - not forgetting tasty merguez sausages. Fresh orange juice and Prosecco were in abundance.
The goodie bags on each place setting were overflowing with treats. The amazing Melissa Kimbell from Awake Organics had kindly gifted us some samples of her Frankin-Sense Divine Face Care - the most amazing pot of yellow goodness. We had cocoa and orange oat squares from Graze, gorgeous gift cards from the talented Cherie Did This, Ingredients Cards from the super team at Skin Ninja, BumbleBizz's line up of next events. The Desk Life Project kindly gifted us each a copy of their Best Week Ever booklet to help our focus in the days following the event. BY SARAH London kindly gave us all samples of their Organic Body Oil while Squirrel Sisters included a tasty bar in one of their brand new flavours. There were discount cards from Moments of Sense and Style, A Finer Thread, Petite Ecoliere, Bloom & Wild, Your Happy Period, Idea Space London, High Mood Food.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended - you were such an incredible group of women and it was great to see Ladies-who-Launch jump from these pages to real life.
