Ladie’s Night At Platform 302

Last Wednesday, Monique and I were lucky enough to be invited to showcase La Belle Sirene at a Ladies Night event for female entrepreneurs hosted by the fantastic Platform 302.

Platform 302 is an absolutely amazing office space; known as “a launching pad for young businesses.” It is a collaborative space where entrepreneurs can hire a “hot desk” to be able to work in an open space with many other businesses and experience the structure and support that is necessary for their growth. The building features incredible amenities, mentorship programs and networking opportunities such as the event we attended.

Ladies Night was a showcase of various businesses from around the Hamilton area that are owned and operated by women. We were very fortunate to even be considered let alone invited to present along side absolutely amazing businesses such as: From North to South Blog, Parkermanns Fine Tea, Casablanca Salon and Spa, Alex Robinson RMT and author Ellie DiJulio.

We spent a couple of weeks working on our presentation and we have posted some photos below. We decided to showcase 5 Spring trends: the orange lip, the teal/blue eye, radiant orchid, luminous skin with pink cheeks and pastel nails. The main section was made up of decoupaged inspiration boards that were paired with products that could be used to achieve the looks, we also used these products to show guests how to apply the makeup. Above that we had beauty tips and tricks available to read and a board composed of images from past blog posts. Everything was rounded off with plenty of flowers, some books and a few teacups to give off the La Belle Sirene vibe.

While I was chatting blush with a few lovely ladies, Monique was able to snap a few shots of the other presentations and the fantastic women in attendance.

We are so thankful to have been included in this event and we met some absolutely lovely women. If you are in the Hamilton area, please check out both Platform 302 and the other businesses we mentioned.
