Ashro Woman: Lynn M.

Meet Yvette from Farmington Hills, MI

A true girly girl, people person and woman of faith, Yvette believes in living in the moment. “Take no thought for tomorrow, live today!”  

Her style has that same vibe. 

“I dress up for everything! Life itself is the perfect occasion to look your best!”

As much as she loves style, faith is her life. “I don’t think I could survive in this world without my faith.” In fact, it was her faith that got her through her greatest struggle: losing her sister and the greatest influence in her life, her mother. “Knowing that they’re safe in the arms of Jesus gives joy.” 

For Yvette, living in the moment is enjoying the little things—like watching old sitcoms with her husband and making chicken/broccoli casserole for her family. What makes her laugh? “Mean people make me laugh!!!! It’s such a waste of time!” We couldn’t agree more!
