Life as Britny is a safe, empowering space dedicated to YOU:
The millennial woman wanting to stop self-sabotaging and start feeling more confident, capable, and ready to conquer her big dreams.
Here’s the deal: I have a feeling you’re reading this because you’re sick and tired of feeling “stuck” living on the sidelines of your own life. You’ve been telling yourself things are gonna be different for awhile, but somehow you keep ending up right back where you started. Deep down, you just aren’t sure you have what it takes to have the life you want. Enough is enough!
I know you want to:
- stop doubting and self-sabotaging your dreams
- pursue your passions and make a difference
- have new experiences that light you up like a Christmas tree
- create a life that matches or even far exceeds your daydreams
This I know for sure: When you change the way you feel about yourself on the inside, big changes are possible on the outside.
On this blog you’ll find self-love and mindset tools, resources, and inspiration to help you get out of your own way and start pursuing your big dreams, consistently. Everything I create here comes from my own personal experiences. If I haven’t tried it myself, I won’t share it.
I’m in the self-love trenches with you. It’s a journey of a lifetime.
Are you ready to get started?

A bit more about moi
Hey girl! It’s me, Britny!
I’m a Mississippi girl living my best life in Split, Croatia. Before falling in love and settling down in Split, I traveled the world running an online business as a mindset coach and a healer. In the last 4 years alone I’ve lived in Spain, Croatia, France, Bali, Thailand, New Zealand, and Slovenia. I definitely have the travel bug!
Now I still work with a handful of coaching and healing clients, but my main focus is serving women like you through my books and this blog. My big vision is to help as many women as possible pursue their best lives through self-love. After all the work I’ve done on myself and with my clients over the past 6 years, I believe self-love is the answer to most of life’s problems.
My self-love journey
Back in 2013 I had a major depressive episode when it seemed like pretty much everything in my life was falling apart at the same time: I was going through a major breakup, working for an emotionally abusive boss, and to top it all off I had a miscarriage.
On the outside my life looked pretty great. I had just graduated with a masters degree in public health, I was planning a big move to Nashville, and I was only 23 years old with my whole life ahead of me.
On the inside though? I felt like I had no reason to live, and I didn’t know how to love myself.
As the child of a rape, I always felt like I didn’t deserve to be here and that I was bad or evil just like my father’s behavior. I thought if I could just be perfect then I’d finally feel enough. I thought if I could just earn the love and acceptance of the people around me, then I’d be worthy. It’s no wonder I felt hopeless when none of my striving made me feel any different than before.
One day after weeks of being in a deep depression, I heard a loving voice from inside me. It said something like this, “You have to find your own source of love and happiness, Britny. That’s your mission now.” Suddenly, I felt like I had meaning again and like I could overcome the sad dark pit of hopelessness I’d fallen into. Ultimately, that voice saved me from myself.
It was at this period in my life that I had my first spiritual awakening, and I realized that I had been living my life for everyone else but me. I realized that I had to learn to love myself just the way I am, and not because of anything I did to earn it.
Working on self-love also led me down a path I never expected for myself: Becoming a coach and a healer to other women who, like me, needed more self-love.
Why I started this blog
About a year ago I started to feel a pull to start this blog, but I kept thinking, “who the hell am I to help others with this when I’m still learning to love myself!?”
Finally it hit me that maybe this is the reason I should do it. Because maybe my imperfect voice and experience is just what you need right now.
Let’s get real: I’m not a guru. I don’t have all of my shit together. I don’t have all of the answers on how to do this thing called life. Not even close. I’m just a girl choosing to love myself even when it feels really hard.
Now that Life as Britny is a real thing and no longer just in my head, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is what I’m meant to be doing.
Sidenote: Can I just say I’m so glad you’re here!?
If you’ve made it this far, you’re the real MVP. 😉
