My name is Britanie Faith and I created my blog Beauty by Britanie back in 2012 with a strong desire to share my passions for all things beauty, fashion, and wellness. I became very conscious about what products I was using during this time and developed a love for finding healthier, more conscious ways of living when possible.
I have struggled with chronic health conditions such as Endometriosis, Fibromyalgia, Panic Disorder, GERD, Hypothyroidism 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 conditions, I became passionate about living a cleaner life and limiting my exposure to as many unnecessary toxins as possible. I believe that we have to be incredibly mindful of not only what we ingest but what we apply on our skin as well. HOWEVER, as I have evolved and learned more over the years, I have realized that it is ALL about BALANCE. I no longer use terms like “organic beauty blogger” or “green beauty blogger”. I talk about products that I love and I don’t label myself as I don’t feel I have ever fit inside any box. I do not believe that fear is ever helpful when trying to live healthier and that we should strive to better ourselves every day with only compassion and never judgment.
I am constantly passionate about sharing things that I love or documenting moments of life. I believe in living in the moment and work on that every day.
Throughout my late teens and early twenties, while suffering from many of the chronic health conditions mentioned above, I went through a period of time where I felt I had no control over my body and I battled with an eating disorder and body dysmorphia. I overcame both of these disorders (however, I still deal with triggers as anyone would) after intense inner-work and dedication. I became very much involved with the importance of self-love and body positivity awareness. I often share photographs of myself showing my body, it helped me to become more in touch with my femininity and strength. I also I regularly touch on the subject of embracing natural beauty and bodies in all shapes and sizes and I have written for Healthy Is The New Skinny and was an ambassador for the Summer Self-Love Celebration.
Before I started my blog, I was working as both a Freelance Makeup Artist, Model and Photographer. I studied Psychology, English, Biology, and Theater in college. Psychology was always and is still something that I am extremely passionate about. Soon thereafter, due to my dedication to learning more about living a cleaner lifestyle, I completed Natalia Rose’s Intensive 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.
Aside from creating and managing BeautyByBritanie.com, I also regularly post on Instagram: britaniefaith & cosmic.britta, along with other social media platforms that are linked on my site. I also write and have written for Mind Body Green, Vivo Life, Free+Native, am a Beauty Judge for Eluxe Magazine, a brand ambassador for Beauty Heroes, Ipsy, 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.
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 like to describe myself as a bohemian flower child at heart with a side of eco-chic glam. I love all things fashion and style, I love to express myself through what I wear and I truly dance to the beat of my own drum. I am an empath and highly sensitive person. I feel everything very deeply. It can often seem like a curse to feel everything so strongly but I like to think of it as my superpower as I am able to deeply connect with so many amazing people because of my sensitivity.
My blog is a place for me to share with you where I find inspiration in all things beauty (inside & out), fashion, holistic health, wellness, musings and DIY tutorials. I also share musings about my own personal journey through the ups and downs of daily life. 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!
Some random or fun facts:
I am an Aries. I love Astrology and more facts: my sun is in Aries, my moon is in Taurus and I am a Libra rising. My Venus is also in Aries.
Making TikTok videos is a fun outlet for me. I had an account but it was deleted so my account now is cosmic.britta which is just purely for fun. I just created a new one where I will be posting videos all about beauty, health, skincare, fashion, etc at beautybybritanie.
I’m obsessed with making playlists on Spotify. Music is a huge huge part of my life. I absolutely love discovering new artists and being sent playlists or songs from people. I could literally make playlists all day and never tire of it.
I will never not be excited to spot the moon and also say “OMG LOOK IT’S THE MOON!” or get excited about seemingly small things.
My favorite flower in the world is the red Rose but I’m an avid lover of flowers and plants.
I’m a dog mom to Joey, a one year old long-haired chihuahua who is my little angel.
I devastatingly lost my 10 year old Pitbull, Tayo. He was not only my emotional support and service animal, he was truly my soulmate and my love. I miss him every single day of my life and he’s made me appreciate moments more than I ever did before. RIP Tayo. wait for me on the moon.
“I have seen the way a detoxed way of life is transformational and I continue to work at making my life as beautiful, balanced and healthy as possible.”
