Conscious Living – Mindful Beauty
My name is Britanie Faith, I am 31 years young and I created my blog Beauty by Britanie in 2012 with a strong desire to share my passions for living a healthier, more conscious lifestyle. I have struggled with an autoimmune disease and chronic health conditions such as Endometriosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, GERD, Gastroparesis, Hypothyroidism, Anxiety and Panic Disorder and other difficult issues accompanied by these chronic conditions since a very young age. Due to an inability to detox properly because of an MTHFR mutation and compromised digestion and wanting to limit my inflammation levels to treat my autoimmune disease, I became dedicated to living a cleaner life and limiting my exposure to as many unnecessary toxins as possible.
I am a Certified Detoxification Practitioner with a passion for living a cleaner and conscious lifestyle. I am a huge advocate for cleaner beauty and have a deep love for organic, eco and cruelty free products. I believe that we have to be incredibly mindful of not only what we ingest but what we apply on our skin as well. I am also a body positive and self-love enthusiast and regularly touch on the subject of embracing natural beauty and bodies in all shapes and sizes. I have written for Healthy Is The New Skinny and was an ambassador for the Summer Self-Love Celebration.
Aside from creating and managing BeautyByBritanie.com, I also write for Mind Body Green, Vivo Life, Free+Native, am one of the brand ambassadors for Beauty Heroes, and regularly contribute articles, pictures & makeup tutorials to Organic Beauty Talk, Pop Sugar, Lucky Magazine, Spirit Beauty Lounge as well as being featured in The Chalkboard Mag, Parents Magazine, Asos Magazine, Eluxe Magazine, Brit+Co, and Thoughtfully Magazine. I have also been an ambassador, host and supporter for Well Summit and The Glow Summit.
Before I started my blog, I was working as both a Freelance Makeup Artist and Photographer. I studied Psychology, English and Biology in college and soon thereafter became heavily involved in the Raw Food Community. I completed Natalia Rose’s Intenstive Teacher Training Program in NYC where I learned a great deal about the many health benefits of properly and regularly detoxing the body. I then became an Intern for Natalia and helped with different projects involving her book, “Detox 4 Women“, that was published in 2009.
I have gained a great deal of knowledge through my dedication to learning as much as possible about chronic health conditions and it was through that researching process that I became even more interested in not only what I was putting in my body but what I was putting on my body as well.
I am adamantly committed to researching the myriad ways of incorporating gifts of ayurvedic principles, holistic and chinese medicine (with a healthy balance of western medicine when needed), aromatherapy, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, energy healing, diet, herbalism and positive thinking into our lives to facilitate healing.
I am a bohemian flower child at heart with a little side of glam. I love coffee, animals, music, movies, crystals (I have quite the collection!), all things flowers, essential oils, pandas, owls, creating and concocting, nature, fashion, photography, poetry and simplicity.
I split my time between Thr Berkshires Massachusetts and Long Island New York.
I have been with my best friend and love of my life, Matthew for 8 years and we recently became engaged in May of 2016. 💍 Together we have a 5 year old rescued Pitbull named Tayo who is a huge love and is also my service dog. He helps me up and down the stairs during severe dizzy spells and helps to calm panic attacks. He is a blessing. I also have two chihuahuas; Benjamin and Tianna. They are little angels. I am a huge dog lover and cannot help myself from dreaming of having a house full of them someday (one can dream!) 🤗
“My blog is a place for me to share with you where I find inspiration in all things beauty (inside & out), holistic health, wellness, personal style, musings and DIY tutorials. I also share musings about my own personal journey through the ups and downs of daily life. I have several chronic illnesses which are incredibly challenging to deal with, so I share alternative options that have helped me so much along the way towards my goal of healing of Body, peaceful Mind and nurtured Spirit. My intention is to motivate you, even just a little bit, to be more positive every day. I invite you to grab your favorite cup of coffee or tea and come and visit with me! I truly find beauty in everything and believe you can too. I’m glad you’re here XO”
