Introduction to Online Family Members’ Club Vesta + Competition
I came to know about Vesta, a new online family members club via its big sister brand, Dazzle and Fizz, an immersive events company founded by sisters, Charlotte and Christie which I’d seen featured on TV and online many times over the past few years.
Highly sought after (they have lots of famous fans) due to their attention to detail and ability to create the most magical of children’s parties, I knew that their new business venture Vesta, would follow suit, offering a stunning, slick, easy to navigate, useful and entertaining platform for all of the family.
‘Vesta’ is the Roman Goddess of the home and its founders’ goal is to make life easier, fuller and more connected for families, in a safe and secure environment.
Through Dazzle & Fizz, Charlotte and Christie have worked with thousands of families and know how crucial childrens’ safety, health and wellbeing is. At Vesta, the safety, education and enjoyment of children is at the heart of their business.
Vesta offers a range of activities, services and benefits to all of its members be it video, digital and printable content exclusively created by VESTA experts covering the curriculum, arts and crafts, fitness, food, beauty, fashion and travel.
Their brand partners also span some of the worlds’ finest hotels and country houses such as The Savoy, The Dorchester and Coworth Park. Vesta helps inform and connect you instantly.
There is such a plethora of child-related sites online, it can feel hard to know where to start. This is where Vesta stands out and comes into its own, making it easy for parents like me, carers and children, to safely explore and discover meaningful content as well as garner advice and services, quickly, without any fuss.
We spent last weekend making arts and crafts from Vesta’s brilliant, easy to follow videos (hello binoculars, finger puppets and slime creation) in the site’s Video Vault (craft sessions and mini-makes are uploaded weekly so there’s always new content added) and I projected a fitness video onto our lounge wall at the request of my boys so they could work out from home. The videos are specifically targeted for growing kids, making them safe and age-appropriate.
We all enjoyed quality time together being active and creative.

There is also a comprehensive section for Grown Ups on Vesta’s site which I found inspiring and motivating, with key presenters Nicky Clarke (celebrity hair stylist), Lawrence Price (fitness guru), Michelin starred chef Steve Drake, Model Louise Boyce (@mamastillgotit) and Dilly Carter who has been billed as the Marie Kondo of London, at hand to help you with all your beauty, food, fitness and home decor needs.
I took a gentle yoga class from my laptop in peace while the boys completed word searches we printed from the site (which kept them thinking and busy over lunch too) and I browsed the Michelin-worthy video recipes by chef Steve Drake, making notes so I can wow my friends and family with his recipes when we’re all allowed to meet up again.
Vesta is a premium online platform, with a concierge and a wealth of contacts to help you with any service you might require for yourself and your family.
The kids were kept occupied and happy thanks to the site.
