When preparing for the birth of her first child, Laura Slater owner of Eat Sleep Love, found there were no baby boutiques that offered what she needed – impartial and practical advice and beautiful, unique products from people who really cared about expectant mums and involved the dads too! So along with her husband, she created a new ‘baby concierge’ service to help parents-to-be get the right advice from experienced parents, with products from a range of smaller, boutique suppliers in beautiful, peaceful environment.
Based in Blackheath, Eat Sleep Love is a beautiful space for parents to come together and enjoy the experience of choosing everything from nursery furniture and pushchairs to their very first outfit.
My background is as a wedding & lifestyle photographer, shooting both digital and film to create authentic, soft and natural fine art photographs. Working primarily with natural light to give my work a beautiful, light and airy touch infused with soft tones.
I have always appreciated and valued the simple things in life and finding the interesting in the ordinary. Coco Lane was founded as I wanted to create something that is about an experience, the slower pace of life, cosiness and candlelight, cuddling up on the sofa with loved ones, being with the people you love, sharing food with close friends, a feeling of home, nurturing a chosen career, wanderlust travels, savouring the small moments in everyday life and just being you and enjoying a cup of tea.
I'm excited to bring you stories that promote all those moments in life that give us value and meaning; inspiring us to live beautifully.
"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is. Go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good" - Roald Dahl
