Hopefully, no skeletons!
Recently, I have been thinking about my closet and the colours I like to wear.
When I was about 10, my favourite colour was pink. Everything had to be pink. My dress was pink. My shoes and everything I could possibly own HAD to be pink! Then puberty hit and I changed my fun favourite colour to orange – that lasted for 2 years and until the hormonal surge finally subsided. Next, I liked yellow, and that lasted a good number of years. In fact, I still like yellow.
However, this August, I got the late Summer vibe. Have you been feeling the vibe? It has been a long time coming for me, but I finally felt it last week on a boat cruise. The days have been hot, but I also know that it gets pretty windy, and even cold on the lake, so I wore my coral dress sweater. It was then that I realized that I can’t seem to get enough dresses in coral, green and blue. Green reflects nicely on the water and has a calming effect. It was a beautiful day in my coral dress.
With the number of mentally unbalanced people increasing every single day, especially in Cosmopolitan centres like Toronto, maybe wearing green is not a bad idea too.
Nowadays, I find I have more greens, blues, whites, and corals than any other colour in my closet.
What’s in your closet? What colours have you been falling in love with?
Hello to all the beautiful souls out there!
My name is Marisa and I’m a 26-year-old writer, editor, and children’s book author. After graduating with a B.A. in English Literature and Women’s and Gender Studies, I now wear many hats! It’s very fun!
I write articles on many different topics. Some of these include feminism, body image, entertainment, beauty, and fashion. This is what brought me here, to my newest favourite blog! I must admit, I am obsessed with every post!
Live Life in The Floral Lane truly embodies who I am as a person. I am a lover of all things pink, because to me, pink is a powerful colour. I also love floral patterns, and I have a collection of floral skirts and dresses currently hanging in my closet. I enjoy expressing myself through fashion and showing others that you can be both feminine and powerful at the same time. So, I may be a walking billboard for Live Life in The Floral Lane in terms of fashion!
Much like I enjoy expressing myself through the written word and clothes, I also enjoy expressing myself through makeup. I like trying new lip gloss and lipsticks that complement my skin. I like trying different types of mascara for extreme volume and length. Lastly, I like trying various bronzers for a sun-kissed glow.
As someone who has constantly struggled with body image and confidence, I hope to aid readers in finding their confidence through the personal posts I write! After all, we are all beautiful!

Hi, my name is CarrieJ and I am the lover of all things beautiful, and that includes you, because I already know you are a beautiful soul! That is why you are reading this blog!
Have you ever wondered where does the big beautiful blue-sky ends? I mean, it must end somewhere. That’s the kind of crazy stuff I like to think about sometimes. But seriously, why should beautiful things have to end?! We at Live Life in the Floral Lane, are committed to all things beautiful. Beautiful baskets of poinsettia, beautiful gardens of tulips, or the first bunches of roses we find in the shop for Mother’s Day. Not to mention the endless fashion and beauty tips offered on this blog. Why should it have to end?! That’s why photographs are important.
Photography represent a frozen frame on the continuum of time. A beautiful time that will never end.
This week I bought my first flower basket. It smells refreshing! I decided to snap a photo because when Winter comes, I never ever want to forget that flowers bloom in Spring. I guess that’s metaphorical too. We have these awesome days that we just never ever want to end. Times when the very clock’s ticking into the next second is a dread, why should it end?!
When I got married, it was one of those awesome days. I wanted the honeymoon to last forever. It was a beautiful day! Leading up to that day, being just graduated from University, I was trying to minimize on cost and nearly chopped the photography budget in half, but for a wise old lady who cautioned me. She said days like these only come around once (I hope!), so enjoy it but also snap it into eternity! Then you look back on that photograph and think, I remember that beautiful day.
For this Spring, here’s to lots of beautiful days and lots of photographs.

So as you can see I’m clearly addicted to blushes LOL. I need to stop myself at Sephora from buying more because I’ll never go through all of these in my lifetime!
So about a month ago this exhibit called “Happy Place” came to Toronto (initially started in LA). And basically it’s just one amazing photo op after another, and I think my followers on insta are starting to get over my posts LOL. So I thought it would be cute to put them all here, and it’s perfect timing because you can still buy tickets if you’re in the GTA! Get them here –> https://www.happyplace.me/ available until Jan 6th!
