Brit's Story


I’m Brittney (Brit for short)! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by my little corner of the Internet, and I can’t wait to share a little more of my story and what brought me here.

Born and raised in a small town in Northeast Connecticut, I grew up loving all things makeup, beauty, fashion but also running around outside building forts & playing sports.

I did the stereotypical 'life path' - graduated high school, went to college, graduated & got a corporate job. I worked for corporate through college and well after. I was struggling to make ends meet and woke up one day and knew I was made for more.

I started working as a virtual assistant, joined a network marketing company and started my brand. Balancing doing corporate and my own business' for two years was quite the feat. On March 15, 2019 I left corporate, adopted a doggo (Norman) and have been working for myself since. 

Doing something that is considered unconventional and 'not normal' in society's eyes has been difficult. That said, growing my brand from the ground up has been a passion project that has afforded me so many wonderful opportunities in the past 3+ years; and for that, I am beyond grateful.

Hands down, my favorite part of what I do is connecting with so many amazing women from all over the country/world, and my hope is that you leave here feeling inspired to look and feel your best.
