It has been so lovely having all you newbies come join me on this crazy rollercoaster of a business, my creative dream, Cocolulu!

I thought I’d do another little introduction to know a little bit about the lady behind the brand.

Hi I’m Louise, and I am proudly half English and half Hong Kong Chinese. I grew up in Hong Kong and as my parents are still there is is a big part of home for me.

I did a degree in embroidery, worked in fashion for 7 years in production and then decided it was time to turn my talent into a dream job in 2020!

I absolutely love colour and believe it has a true colour to change your mood. The perfection colour combination evokes a real sense of satisfaction in me and I hope to create this for you too through my pieces😍

Every comment, either on social media or in real life means everything to me. Having your support gives me all the fuel and drive I need to continue to be inspired to make beautiful things so a BIG THANK YOU TO YOU ALL❤️❤️❤️❤️

She’s simple but so effective. She was such an important addition to my collection because I really wanted to add a touch of nature. You know how much I love fruit, I love to eat it ALOT, cook with it, make fake ones so it only made sense to decorate my tree with them!

The velvet bows adding a lovely luxury feeling to each slice, coming in a classic green or an eye catching pink. Available in sets of 3. Also so pleased to see they have been so popular at markets!

So a lot of thought went into this special pear. I dreamed of her months and months ago, wanting to bring the opulent feeling of velvet to the collection.

This years Christmas collection is about a magical forest, thinking of magical pieces surprising you on a winter’s walk amongst the trees.

So here is my imperfect pear, no pear is perfectly symmetrical or the same, just like this golden pear.

A little sneak in what’s to come for the Christmas collection 😍 a absolutely adore a bow, especially on dresses, or in your hair. They are cute, elegant and always extra festive when in a deep red at Christmas.

It seems so many small businesses are already launching their Christmas collections and it is making me panic a bit as I still need to photograph them all! So for now he’s the velvet bow garland candle 🥰

03/10/2023

Means so much to see these beauties go out today! When I started collecting these dessert coupes I really wanted to create little bowls of magic from pieces that would end up in landfill.

These were my fav, the art deco style of them was just such a winner to find! Now adorned with the cutest pastel little flowers, the art deco and pastel look giving me all the Miami vibes!

23/05/2023

It was such a proud moment when .science approached me about my signature ric-rac napkins. So honoured to be stocked in such an established and carefully curated store in such a beautiful part of the UK. Adding a bit of luxury colour to any meal, even a simple French breakfast 🥰

22/05/2023

I have been lucky enough to find many of these hyacinth vases over the years so have been able to paint this gorgeous number for some of you lucky ones out there! I have one left I can paint and would love to see it go to someone special. She’s like a new take on something a little vintage. My favourite red and pink combo paired with happy daisies and of course a little ric-rac wiggle.

16/05/2023

Was such a pleasure stitching not one but 7 of these stunning t-shirts for someone to gift to her crew. I mean what a better way to tell someone you’re friends for life ❤️❤️❤️

Blues and red getting ready for the coronation weekend😍 hope you all have lovely plans! We have a street party on Sunday so super excited to be really British and sit in the rain 😂

28/04/2023

To think I made these little ladies in 2021! They still bring me so much joy, an instant smile from looking at these looking back at me!

Each one handmade from clay by me, then painted twice, a layer of white then it’s colour in gingham and a contrasting rim and base. To make her last longer she also gets a coat of varnish to make her shiny!

They make the perfect pair with any of my candles and if you buy some designs as a set, you get a little discount too!

Officially the first day of spring 😍 did you know that the spring equinox is when the sun's rays shine onto the equator while the Earth sits with its axis tilted neither toward nor away from the sun. This causes 12 hours of sunlight almost everywhere on Earth! How amazing is that!
