Meet the fitness blogger who hasn't shaved any of her body hair for more than a year

A fitness blogger has shared photographs of her hairy legs and armpits in the hope it will inspire others to embrace their natural beauty. Morgan Mikenas has more than 7,000 followers on Instagram, where she posts about her incredible fitness regime and transformation after she took up bodybuilding.

Last year, she embraced the natural look and ditched razors for good. She hasn't shaved her armpits or legs since the beginning of 2016. In a video posted to her YouTube channel entitled 'Why I Don't Shave', she flashes her armpit and says she wants to explain to her followers why she doesn't remove body hair.

"I guess my number one reason why I stopped was that it just took so much time. It took so much of my time to get in the shower and have to shave everything and then wash my hair and then wash my body it's just like another thing. I just, one day, was like 'why am I doing this anymore? This just takes so much time.'

In one Instagram post, she said: "What is beauty anyway? To me... it's to be beautiful before someone else told you what beautiful is supposed to be.. Just as you are, you are beautiful."
