The Pied Piper of Cool Moms: Heymama's Katya Libin
Our friend Katya is the Co-Founder and CEO of Heymama, a digital network for entrepreneurial and creative moms. As a resource to the world’s go-getting, multi-tasking superwomen, Katya looks for quality items and accessories that will not only make a statement, but fit into her always-on-the-go lifestyle. Her look of the moment? Menswear, because it’s empowering and crisp and cool. Just like her. Katya and co-founder Amri Kibbler have tapped into the realization that sometimes parenting can take a serious village, and they’ve united a new generation of moms around the idea that “the juggle is real.” Katya has an almost magical ability to connect, thanks to her laser-focused vision and refreshing can-do spirit. With her around, motherhood feels more supportive and looks a little chicer. We caught up with Katya, ever on the move in Williamsburg, to capture some of her signature Swears.
Brixton Sutton Fedora
I’m a big hat person. They’re a huge confidence-booster for me because they allow you to transform any look into something chic and put-together.
I love that these jeans are relaxed, yet pulled together. They fit so well and make me feel confident. I love the high-waisted style with a little distressing. They’re a must. Madewell jeans are a definite SwearBy.
Together Is Better: A Little Book of Inspiration by Simon Sinek
This book tells a powerful story about being a leader and an innovator. It’s so great because it’s something both kids and adults can read and enjoy. It would be a perfect gift for anyone.
Maileg Play Tea Set
I love this tea set. My daughter is very whimsical. She has a huge imagination, like many kids, and this helps her get into ‘princess zone’ in a second. It’s so easy to grab, whether you’re traveling or on your way out to dinner. Quaint. Adorable. Nostalgic.
Neroli Portofino Candle by Tom Ford
My best friend works at Tom Ford, so this was a birthday present. It’s an amazing scent that helps me relax and indulge after a long day. It takes you to a different place, and that’s what makes it so good.
