Every mom holds her own magic - that arsenal of must have products and best kept secrets which allow her to get through the day and on occasion make motherhood look like a breeze. Each week, we'll use YOYA's 20 Questions to unlock the vault and provide a sneak peek into the essentials of our favorite moms.
This week the spotlight’s on Shari Loeffler - writer, activist and mom of three beautiful daughters. Shari is the brow behind @myfiercebrow, an Instagram feed dedicated to embracing one’s unique natural beauty, in hopes that it will empower young people to do the same. Shari’s unapologetic sense of self is contagious, and we’ve had a girl crush on her for quite some time. We’re loving her beautiful personality, eclectic style and personal mission to change the world, one brow at a time.
Enjoy learning more about Shari, the books that currently inspire her and the best granola one can find in New York!
