On Thursday I was invited to the pre-launch party for the magazine Platfform at the Peppermint bar. The magazine is out in May. It's created and run annually by the students of the university. We got to hear about some of the features of what was going to be inside and it sounds great. They run, create and market this with next to little/no budget. Apart from clothing and printing. It really shows how much can be done with so little.
The theme this year is indulgence so of course we were treated to some indulgent chocolate by a local chocolatier.
We were treated to the VIP section, which was beautifully decorated by the ladies from the magazine. I couldn't stop talking about the glitter up-cycled wine bottle turned candle holder. Pinterest lovers eat your hearts out! There was even an up-cycled southern comfort bottle turned lamp base.
Accompanied with 2 for 1 on cocktails. I am a huge fan of cocktails, it was only a shame you couldn't mix and match as I love trying new ones.
Overall, a good night out. It was great to meet another blogger and get chatting, it's amazing how much we have in common. The girls of the magazine were so welcoming and down to earth, I loved hearing about what they have been working on and look forward to hearing more and having a read when the magazine is out.
