Tamika ( TL ) Hayden, is a multi-talented artist, graphic designer, and creative with a hipster chic and color - poppin aesthetic. Her love for stationery, art, and design began as a little girl which led to a degree in Fine Arts and a BFA in Graphic Design. Tamika began freelancing in her spare time, in 2006, designing for a broad range of clients, helping them to capture life's special moments, start their own business, and create lasting impressions through party invitations, websites, branding, and creative consulting.
Fast Forward to 2011, she had a baby girl named Leah. Around that time, there wasn't any family that could watch Leah nor was daycare affordable or an option until Leah was at least able to talk. With the support of her husband, the decision was made that she'd stay at home, take care of Leah, and focus on her own business. It was then, she became inspired to motivate others to love life, hustle, and dream.
In 2015, she RE-BRANDED her business & created Love TLHayden, an online retail shop, design studio, and lifestyle blog diary. the blog gives a glimpse into her life of being a work from home mom along with an eye for design in everything she draws inspiration from: street WEAR, fashion, DIY, art, food, travel, entertaining and more. It is a brand that speaks most directly to young women, MOMS, creatives, and free spirits who love adventure and independence while PURSUing them both with swag, wit & FUN.
"The world is full of naysayers and dream crushers. Sometimes we can even be our own worst critic, forget to be ourselves, and have fun. I wanted to be a cheerleader to others, especially women, encouraging them to be their bossy selves and live a life they love."
"Jesus is my homeboy. I married my college sweetheart. I'm a mommy to a 6 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. My Motto, " Love Life, Hustle & Dream" .
