About

img_3188-1

My name is Britanie Faith, I am 32 years young 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.

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. I believe strongly in BALANCE. 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.

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 after intense inner-work and dedication. I became very much involved with the importance of self-love and body positivity awareness. 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. 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 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 TalkPop SugarLucky MagazineSpirit Beauty Lounge as well as being featured in The Chalkboard Mag, Parents Magazine, Asos Magazine, Eluxe MagazineBrit+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 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.

I love animals, crystals, flowers, tea, coffee, plants, music, movies, books, essential oils, unicorns, pandas, owls, astrology, creating and concocting, nature, fashion, photography, poetry, and simplicity. 🦋🦄🔮🌸📿

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!

  5. Hey Britanie, I love your blog! I was wondering, do you live in the LA area? My boss, the creator of ying and yang living is looking for an organic beauty guru to come and do a show with us in the end of March and I was wondering if you will be interested! Please email me (:

  6. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your thoughts before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Kudos!

  8. Love your blog! I am an herbalist and am studying holistic health and Ayurveda. I am working on cleaning up both my diet and skin care items. I suffer from the same skin issues as you and fibromyalgia. Hopefully I can work through these issues and feel better!

    1. Hi Kayla, Thank you so much for your comment. I love that you are studying Ayurveda. I am so passionate about Ayurvedic principles. I am sorry to hear you also suffer from some of the same issues as me but very happy to hear that you have a positive attitude and it sounds like you are working towards trying to help yourself in any way you can! Keep that positive attitude and you WILL get through these issues and feel better. xoxo Sending you so much love

      1. Thanks so much! I am so glad to have found you on Instagram and now this blog, your tips and reviews are very helpful!

  9. Hi Britanie: I have been a chronic headache sufferer and just started to use natural and organic cosmetics with the hopes that changing what I put on my body will reduce the chronic pain that I’ve been experiencing for so many years. I came across your site and see that you, too, as well as many of your followers have dealt with chronic pain. What is your (and others) experience after changing cosmetics in terms of symptom reduction? My diet is quite healthy (except for caffeine) and free of processed sugars. Many thanks-Gayle

  10. Hi Britanie,
    please check out this naturopathic doctor, Dr. Rober Morse. He has helped me cure my Graves’ disease and anxiety…
    He works with herbs only and a raw foods
    Dr. Morse has over 800 YouTube videos (Q&A) and you may just find your answers on there!
