My final Brown Girl Blogger I’m introducing from my first series is a young lady with a beautiful soul, Micalyn. Her intrinsic style and vibrant personality, I felt drawn and honored to include such a beautiful and inspirational person in my project. Micalyn is a Digital Strategist for a successful marketing and branding company and a YouTube blogger. In her blog post, she blogs about going natural. 

More about Micalyn:

Micalyn is 22 years old with a B. A. from Oakland University in Psychology and Communication. In 2013, she decided to go back to the natural route with her hair resulting to early 2014, going with the big chop catapulting her into the natural hair world. She now has a natural hair and lifestyle YouTube channel she manages full time with over 23K followers and growing all while working full time at Saga MKTG as a full time digital strategist. Micalyn likes to say:

“I’m just a carefree naturalista learning to love myself and hopefully encouraging others to do the same”

Please enjoy Micalyn’s blogpost below and be sure to check out her YouTube channel here!

“I’ve had long hair all of my life. So, when it started to break of and become thin, I had to do something. While researching how to grow my hair back, I stumbled upon the natural hair community. I learned that black girls have curly hair, but I don’t think I even remember what my natural hair looked like. So, I decided to take on the journey of returning natural. What I didn’t know was the journey would change my life.

As my heat-damaged hair started to grow, I started to see that I did indeed have curls. Something inside me started to change as well. I started to love my hair. I started to appreciate my ancestors whose hair was like mine. I started to love my people who have the same hair as me. I became absolutely in love with my Black Girl Magic.

This journey led me to start my YouTube channel to help other women find the magic within them. I started to use my other social media to do the same. Over the years, I’ve received messages from amazing women telling me how I’ve inspired them to love themselves. I’ve seen my friends find and love themselves. I truly believe going natural helped me find my purpose in life: showing the women of the world that they are beautiful, natural the way that they are no matter what society says. Natural is beautiful.”

When you promised yourself you’d go on a strict intermittent fasting diet but you can’t put down the sweets 🥴⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I haven’t consistently been to the gym in over a year. But quarantine fasho put a screeching halt to any physical alternative activities I could’ve been doing in the absence of the gym... like twerking in clubs. Dancing in streets at a block party. And other random stuff.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I gained at least 20 pounds. To some, I look normal. To me; this is the biggest I’ve ever been and I’m extremely unrecognizable to ME. I plan to change up my diet and eat way less meat (never going vegan tho), drinking more detox and energizer teas, and picking up the slack with the help of @jabsgym_em. But if y’all have any reccs for appetite suppressants - like really good ones - be a pal and comment them down below. I’m sure we could all use the tip as the world prepares to “shutdown” again 😉

Dating in Detroit sucks. It’s already difficult to meet new people because, where the hell are they? What circles do they run in? What restaurants do they like to eat at? And by chance if you happen to like the same things, will that person you plan to bag even be there the same time as you? Let’s not forget to add on also running the risk of being catfished in real life because this mask stays ON 😭⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My dating journey this season hasn’t been pretty. It’s been pretty pitiful. That’s why I love that @bumble has made it super easy to date while safely socially distancing. There’s the video chat feature where you can go on your first virtual date and if you’re a woman you get to #makethefirstmove and start the conversation which I just love because it allows you to sort out the people you aren\'t interested in from the potential dating opportunities and we love to see that!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re ready to find out if you’re new date is quarantine material, #MakeTheFirstMove and download @bumble. #BumblePartner

Feeling good feeeels good. I think I’m on an up right now. My therapist likes to say I’m in transition to something new. Either way, these gallons of water are getting drank, I’m eating too good like everyday, and I’ll be back in the gym next month hopefully with @jabsgym_em.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What y’all doing to stay up this season?
