My name is Alyce Renderos and I am the new Owner and Director of B.OKideas. Thank you for taking the time to visit our page and learn more about what we do and who we are.
B.OKideas was founded by Kietah Martens-Shaw, who after enduring a series of health challenges was inspired to create a business providing wellbeing gifts that left a lasting impression. Since launching in 2018, B.OKideas has provided unique and practical wellbeing gifts to thousands of individuals and businesses worldwide.
A little bit about me… my family and I call Brisbane, Queensland home. I come from an events, sales and marketing background most recently as Senior Manager, Event Partnerships at Brisbane Economic Development Agency. I love yoga, true crime podcasts, travel, freshly squeezed orange juice and a tidy house. Perfectionist by nature, it runs in the family. Anyone who knows me would say my favourite things are lychee martinis and smarties, not together! As someone who loves gift giving and is passionate about mental health and wellbeing, B.OKideas is the dream venture for me. I am excited to work with the B.OK team and community to continue spreading the message of wellbeing with individuals and businesses worldwide.
I have always been the sort of person to push myself out of my comfort zone and take on new challenges. Putting 100% of myself into everything I do, is as exhausting as it sounds and can have its challenges. I have found this to be especially true over the last four years, as a Mum to two young boys navigating the juggling act that is motherhood and fulltime work. I have watched many women, myself included, neglect their own wellbeing because there are too many other competing priorities. However, I am now realising the importance of prioritising my own wellbeing because if I cannot take care of myself, how can I take care of others?
Prioritising your own mental health and wellbeing is not always easy but small steps help to create positive change and this is what the B.OK gifting experience is all about. The envelope journey included in our B.OK Boxes engages the recipient in a range of mindfulness activities to encourage wellbeing practices to be embedded into their everyday life. B.OK’s mission is to promote time out, spark joy and support overall wellbeing. We want people to feel lighter, brighter and more supported when they receive one of our gifts. We are, always here.
