About Bekki Boo
Here's a few things you may like to know about me and how I started Dazzling Pamper Parties!
Firstly HELLO and THANK YOU for choosing a Dazzling Pamper Party!
I live in Devon with my boyfriend Marty, three cats, Munchkin, Purrdy and Cougar and dogs Minnie & Mabel; My favourite colour is rainbow and I eat way too much pizza and sandwiches!
I believe laughter can heal wounds that can't be seen and have a crazy shoe obsessions (I have over 100 pairs!)
I have been running Dazzling Pamper Parties since 2008. I developed my passion for working with children when I was just 16 and worked as a party and den supervisor at the local children's 'Deep Sea Den'. I would have a whale of a time accidentally falling in the ball pools and loved making the children laugh!
I knew that I wanted a career that would make people laugh and feel happy. Fast forward a few years where I had trained for my holistic beauty therapy and teenage beauty specialist diplomas.
I quickly realised that although I loved to work within the beauty trade - it still wasn't where my heart was.
I then went to University to become a Paediatric Occupational Therapist! It was during my first year placement at the hospital where I started Dazzling Pamper Parties.
I knew I wanted to work with children and make them smile. I knew how important social inclusion is for children and how much a party can impact on their friendship groups. I also have had experience first hand at what it is like to hold parties at home for my then step-daughter- and to do everything was incredibly stressful!
Dazzling Pamper Parties was designed around being affordable and stress-free for parents whilst being fun for children - and of course making them feel like the special princesses they are! Because they are designed to be carried out at home for groups as small as 4 means that even the more socially distant children can take part and enjoy their party.
Once I was up and running the parties became an instant hit! After my second year at Uni I decided my heart was no longer there, however still had a passion for helping people.
Fast forward another few years where Dazzling Pamper Parties got struck by Covid. Whilst being unable to provide parties in person, I then started to make pamper boxes for children which has now grown to pamper boxes for adults and teens too! I just absolutely love putting these gorgeous treats together, whilst also supporting other local businesses with their products!
During the years I have also worked in care settings as a support worker and enabler and have obtained my DBS certification. As well as being able to help children to enjoy their birthday parties I also worked as an activities and events manager for a local charity working with children and young adults with profound and multiple learning difficulties. After relocating to Bovey Tracey I also changed job as an activities coordinator for a residential home working with older people with dementia. This is equally a rewarding job which I absolutely love!
When I'm not busy pampering or working I love spending time with my friends, their children and my family. I love nature and going on lovely walks around the moors and exploring lots of beaches! When i'm not feeling lazy I also love getting out on my bike! I even cycled from Vietnam to Cambodia back in 2013! As well as exploring the local Devon and Cornwall Delights, I love to go on HOLIDAY!! I have been lucky enough to visit lots of places around the globe but there are so many places to explore - i'm just going to keep having fun enjoying as many as I can!
Well that's enough about me! I can't wait to party with you!
