Any event that promotes celebrating women in business with cake and beauty treatments gets a green light from me. That’s why I was more than happy to attend the Powder Boutique’s Pamper Night in support of the NSPCC on the 27th of October.
Walking down Duke’s Street you might miss this boutique that’s tucked away, but behind the glossy black door of number 36a that hides a vintage inspired salon just waiting to welcome you. From 5.30 till 8.30 the Power Boutique was host to inspiring talks from both the Grl Pwr Gang, a collective for supporting women in the creative industries, and the Super Charged Club, (a club all about positivity, fitness and feeling good!) Along with providing drinks, discount beauty treatments and the chance to purchase jewellery from Cheap Frills. There was also an mini-exhibition from Worthing based artist Lois Orchard.
By 7 o’clock the salon was packed with laughter and smiling faces, some fresh and glowing from pampering and after listening to Kirsti Hadley’s talk on Women in Business, I got talking to Louise Headon who had also come from Worthing, especially for the event. ‘I’ve recently started a jewellery business with one of my close friends and we’re definitely finding it challenging. We came for the girly night really, but events like these are great to make friends and contacts!’
As all pink cupcakes were eaten and nails were brightly polished, this night by Power Boutique was undoubtedly a success celebrating friendship, beauty and girl power!
