Burt’s Bees 🐝 makeup

I’ve been trying the Burt’s Bees range of make up and I have to say that I’m pleasantly surprised. Love the premise that real, natural beauty is about looking and feeling your beautiful self. Every woman is different and natural beauty is authentic beauty especially when it’s affordable beauty. The full cosmetic line is formulated without parabens, ska, petrolatum, talc or synthetic fragrances. The formula is amazing as it only includes smart natural ingredients that work together so the skin can live well. I really liked the liquid foundation (available…

FRESH SKINCARE

When it comes to skincare, the only thing I care about is how little I have to worry about my skin. So I was super excited when I got the chance to review products from the cult skincare brand Fresh.

Scarlettesse on the go: staycation at the Hotel Bonaventure

There’s a lot to be said about taking the time every now and then to just breathe. With the everyday grind, it’s easy to forget that a break can also be an Uber ride away. We were extra lucky to stay at the modernist hotel Bonaventure this fall (we even caught the last days of the Indian summer here) and what a surprise this gorgeous hotel was!!. It’s conveniently located on top of Place Bonaventure, a few minutes away from the major shopping malls of downtown Montreal. We immediately fell in…

Fergie footwear & the casual bootie

I’ve always enjoyed a sexy boot for as long as I can remember. Sufficient to say that when I got the chance to work with Fergie footwear, the new shoeline of pop queen Fergie, I knew that this would be a match made in shoe heaven. The shoe I chose to feature first is Fergie’s favorite boot, the Elis cowboy boot. This studded ankle bootie (black suede with metallic studs) is so versatile, you can even wear it out at night like I did below. Shop their sale at Fergie footwear (with the…

Fall layers: tackling the frigid weather

Winter is here and I can honestly say that part of me is excited (certainly not for the frigid temps we have come to expect here in Montreal); excited for the winter styled looks and the layers!. Yes freezing can be fun too. Any layered  faux fur piece will make your make your coat or jacket an instant star. So pile up the layers; this season it’s so chic to be warm. I styled this trend with a basic tee, skinny jeans and my fave biker jacket.
