Dear Diary

It's that time of year when you will probably be thinking about buying a diary/planner, especially when being more organized is one of those resolutions many of us make.  Personally, I really enjoy setting out my goals and aspirations for the new year in a planner, not to mention keeping track of all my commitment!

Although I do use an online calendar for keeping track of Coco Lane's features and submissions, there's something about physically writing things down in a personal planner that's just so alluring!

So if you were unlucky enough not to receive a diary/planner as a gift for Christmas, here are a few to consider.

I have always appreciated and valued the simple things in life and finding the interesting in the ordinary.  I love 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.

 
 

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
