I'm Tamika, designer, artist, creative curator, design director, coffee addict, lover of all things pink and editor/owner of Love TL Hayden!
Welcome to my design diary. When I'm not creating designs for others, I'm here curating all the creative things I love. I use this platform to share with you my work, cool brands, creatives, and entrepreneurs just like me. I graduated with a B.A. in graphic design and a minor in marketing from Western Illinois University and I’ve been an independent designer since 2011, when my daughter was born.
I help girl bosses and bossmommas brand their business, offering them tips and resources, all while creating and curating fun products, accessories, and inspiration to spark up ones unapologetic happy and sassy lifestyle.
So, while here, you’ll get to know myself and some pretty bad ass creatives who I often feature in my blog diary. Own a shop or consider yourself creatively dope too? Contact me to be featured, so I can blast you here on the site, my e-news, and my social networks.

"Jesus is my homeboy. I married my college sweetheart. I'm a mommy to a 7 year old cool kid and a handsome baby boy. TuTu's, sneakers and converse are our thing. I grew up writing in diaries, obsessing over Lisa Frank, and collecting things like unicorns, trolls, gel pens, buttons and enamel pins. I love the color pink. Life is sweet with candy and sugar. I've never met a cupcake or color I didn't like. I'm down for eating cake for breakfast. I live for Pizza, Tacos, Fries and Brunch. I believe in coffee first and wine later. My desk is full of color, paper, cute stuff, and confetti (total nerd) and I do my work to the sounds of chicks like Beyonce & Rihanna.
Meet my family. The hubby is the dude who helps make sure things run smoothly over here. He also keeps my Starbucks addiction going. Leah is my assistant, she's often found making confetti. As for Joseph, well he's.... just into everything, my work, your packages, everything.
