Hello 2023 | Happy New Year
* Written 1st January 2023 *
Dear Cocorosers 💗
This is it. The last sunrise of 2022 has been and tomorrow, a new dawn will mark 2023.
So much in this world is out of our control, but I do believe that collectively, we can help to forge a better community and create positive change.
Smile and laugh more. Act now so you won't regret. Get off the sofa and make those dreams happen. Show more gratitude and cherish the little moments. Have courage to face new challenges. Be kind. Be thoughtful. Hold on tight to those beautiful memories and, with the whole of 2023 ahead of you, create so many more.
I've also taken this opportunity to reflect over the year and would like to share some of our Cocorose highlights with you 💗
Happy New Year and sending you lots of love,
Janan & Team Cocorose xx
Our striped Hoxton trainers launched this year, with the Pastel Pink & Gold an immediate sell-out. The patriotic Red, White & Blue celebrated HM The Queen's Platinum Jubilee and was highlighted by the Press on so many fashion and shopping pages. We finished the year with our striking navy and burgundy styles, with burgundy reaching new heights as the colour of the season.
An incredible milestone to remind me how far we have journeyed. A chance to show my deepest gratitude, again, to you for helping to make this happen.
We launched our new line of Hand & Body Washes and Lotions, in 250ml Biodegradable bottles, just in time for Christmas 🎁 Breaking into a new category was never going to be easy, so hopefully we'll be able to grow the collection next year, especially as the credentials are so positive.
Biodegradable and Recyclable. No Parabens. Pure Essential Oils. Vegan. No Animal Cruelty. Made in England.
RAISING MONEY FOR CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH
Many of you have expressed your excitement over the latest Hoxton trainer that I've been working on. The Queen Bee is due to launch next year at some point and we will continue to raise money for The Honeypot Children's Charity and the incredible work they do to support young carers.
Did I mention it was tough to crack a new market category? It's taken us perseverance and a lot of love to keep and grow our beautiful candle collection and, just over a year in, we now have a stunning range of absolutely divine, indulgent and luxurious candles with a cult following too.
Sustainable, natural wax. No paraffins. Hand-Poured. Vegan. No Animal Cruelty. Made in London.
LUXURY GIFT BOXES
I created these incredible value boxes, filled with luxury items sourced from lovely, independent brands (many friends), to celebrate Small Business Saturday and champion entrepreneurship and small business founders. It was a very different type of project for me and I hope that we'll be able to bring you new boxes throughout 2023.

HOW YOU COCOROSE IT
I've really, really enjoyed seeing your pictures and videos throughout the year and honestly speaking, these are a real highlight for me. Please do keep them coming, whether on social media, email or attached to your reviews.
FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS
It's challenging and rewarding running a family business, especially with two little ones. All I can say is a big, huge THANK YOU for all your support ❤
This time of year never ceases to inspire me. New beginnings. Hope. Freedom. Peace. Strength. Forgiveness. Love. Kindness. Togetherness.
Happy New Year xx
