My name is Shundra and I am the blogger of Brown Mommy Diary. Nearly a few days after I had delivered a healthy baby boy, I found myself wondering how I could encourage and provide insight through my journey. This sparked my interest in starting a blog, because motherhood is NOT easy! Brown Mommy Diary is a space for transparency through the challenges of motherhood, but it is also a space to learn how to be your best self through self-care, fashion, and so much more.
I have heard countless times that when you become parents that you have to put your life on hold. Motherhood does not have to halt your life and I am here to show you that motherhood can be fun and enjoyable while still “slayin’ for the gawds”.
Yes, parenting is serious business, but a dose of fun makes everything worthwhile. This is why you will see my baby boy bouncing to the beat of music or a TikTok exposing my obsession of Target. I’m passionate about motherhood, but I’m also passionate about discovering my new self through this journey. I understand that motherhood is a lifestyle and it is my goal to make the transition of motherhood easier for others as they embark on this journey.

My name is Madisen and I’m a Beauty and Lifestyle Blogger based in Charlotte, NC. I’m a proud dog mom and a full-time Content Creator. Growing up, writing was always a passion of mine. I enjoyed writing short stories and poems — my mind constantly had different ideas popping up and the best way for me to express those was through my writing.
Writing is therapeutic for me and I’m glad that I’ve been able to start my own blog, Naturally Madisen. I decided to start blogging when I transitioned to natural hair in 2018. I’ve always wanted my own website and played around with different ones in the past, however, I never kept up with them and ended up losing the motivation. I was determined to try again and document my journey for the world to see.
I love that I’ve been able to share my journey and educate women on how to care for natural hair. All of the nights I spent researching paid off! What started out as a hobby has now become a source of income for me. The fact that I can wake up every day and do something I’m passionate about is amazing. I hope my story encourages other women to just go for it. Don’t second guess yourself. You have something unique to offer and your experiences will resonate with someone.
As I continued to grow my blog and social media platforms, I expanded the purpose of my brand and started discussing clean beauty, skincare, and wellness. All of these topics tied in perfectly and I’m glad I incorporated other parts of my life into my content. I also share tips for upcoming Bloggers/Content Creators because I want to see everyone win. I was clueless at the beginning of my journey and wish I had some guidance. Now that I’ve gained more experience, I don’t mind sharing the strategies that have helped me build my brand.
My community, also known as Maddy Squad, has been supportive and if it wasn’t for them, I’m not sure where I’d be! I love knowing that my content is helpful, inspiring, and providing value for other women. At the end of the day, I want to help others, put a smile on their face, and show them anything is possible.
