Why, hello there! My name is Maiya and I am excited to start this blogging adventure. Many of you may not know who I am... and why would you? I'm nobody famous. Just a lady who absolutely adores her natural hair and anything about natural beauty. I have also started my own small business making jewelry. Some people say it is my calling because I have always been a creative person. Who knows what my calling is? I am a Biology major at Bowie State University graduating in December. Becoming a pediatrician is my goal. But if God directs me to another path along the way, I'm pretty sure I'll follow.
Now, you may ask, "How long have you been natural?" I have been happily natural since September 5, 2008. This is what my hair currently looks like. Goofy picture, I know. As you will learn about me, you will notice that I love to have fun. This picture is the result of a dry bantu knot out. Here is a link to my tutorial on how to achieve this look. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40fwWks_Df8&feature=youtube_gdata_player I keep my hair pretty simple by sticking to twist/braid/bantu knot outs. I am more than happy to answer questions about my hair so please feel free to ask!
On to this new small business. I have always made or altered things to my liking. This jewelry venture originally started off as me making bracelets for myself. But when I posted pictures of my creations on my Tumblr and Instagram (my name is iloveMAIcurls on both if you'd like to follow me.), I got suggestions to sell my creations. So, that is what I did.

So, there is more of me to come! I hope that you enjoyed reading this quick post and please stay tuned for future posts. Wherever you are in the world, please have a good day, afternoon, or a great night. Peace!
