Hi! I’m Tamika, graphic designer, owner of the shop Love TL Hayden, and creator of Her Design Diary.

I graduated with a B.A. in graphic design and a minor in marketing from Western Illinois University and became an independent designer in 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.


Her Design Diary was created so that I and others could inspire you to design your home, business, self, and life. If you’re in search of girlboss vibes, cool brands, creative finds, and products created by other entrepreneurs, you’ll find it all in the diary.

While here, you’ll get to know myself and some pretty bad ass creatives. Own a shop or consider yourself creatively dope too? Contact me to be featured, so we can blast you here on the site, my e-news, and my social networks.

more about me below 


"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.
