Today’s Vancouver Mom: Scarlett Ballantyne


My name is Scarlett Ballantyne, and I am a Lower Mainland mom working part-time as a blogger and creative freelancer/makeup artist/writer, and a full-time mom to two teenage girls. I have lived in beautiful White Rock/South Surrey for many years, but was raised in the Prairies. I’ve been married for nearly 20 years – although I’m not that old, I promise – and am an active dance-mom, fashion-lover, reality-TV-watcher, kid-chauffeur, part-time chef and chihuahua-owner.
