New York In Winter

Visiting New York in the winter months can be extremely cold, but I just use that as an excuse to drink copious amounts of hot chocolate.  On a plus (apart from the hot chocolate) you do get the most beautiful clear blue skies and crisp fresh air.  

As for the attractions, everything is open with queues minimal so it’s a great time for visiting museums, movies, restaurants and central park zoo. A trip up the Statue of Liberty or Rockafeller Centre in the evening to view the city lights is a must.

One of New York highlights has to be Chelsea Market, with interesting stalls selling all sorts of goodies, fresh lobsters and oysters to sample, amazing restaurants and a great atmosphere. It has great character with the old architecture and ever changing look as you walk through different sections of the market.  Once you're finished wondering around the market, just a short walk away you can enjoy (and burn off all the food you've just eaten) an interesting walk on the High line.

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
