MEET OUR FEATURED #BOSSBAES AT SIP & SLAY DECEMBER 2016

TAM THYME IS AN ORGANIC HERBAL PRODUCT LINE OF TOPICALS, SOAPS, TONERS AND TINCTURES

BOSS BAE: TAMAR SAUNDERS || OWNER OF TAM THYME

A NOTE FROM TAMAR: Before September 2011, there was no shortage of harsh chemicals, preservatives, parabens, etc that I would coat my hair and skin with. The food I ate was also no exception before I decided to try to eat organically grown produce and hormone-free meats. After reading  "The Green Beauty Guide: Your Essential Resource to Organic and Natural Skin Care, Hair Care, Makeup, and Fragrances" by Julie Gabriel, I was inspired to clean up my daily beauty routine and diet. I also started gardening more and took up an herbal apprenticeship course to better serve my internal and external natural routine. Don't get me wrong though - I still enjoy the occasional In-n-Out burger and it is still hard to part with my favorite shade of MAC lipstick.  In addition to the actual products, TamThyme is many things. It is a lifestyle blog exploring the natural and organic processes to maintain our hair, bodies, and spirits. I document my journey through this blog and informational site to serve as inspiration for others and hopefully to foster a community of exchange in some of these experimental endeavors. I celebrate the diversity of hair types, textures, and styles. I also have a deep love for plants and herbs and how they can naturally enliven our daily life routines, including body and hair care. An entrepreneur at heart, I am involved in many things. I addition to running TAM thyme, I am also currently working in real estate and rehab financing. When I have time to breathe, I am usually just holding my breathe again doing Masters Synchronized Swimming. Any time after that is spent decompressing in my garden or over my sewing machine.

BOSS BAE: DIANA SAGINI || OWNER OF SAGINI DESIGNS

SAGINI DESIGNS IS A LIFESTYLE BOUTIQUE OFFERING DIVINELY INSPIRED ADORNMENTS. ALL JEWELRY IS 100% HANDMADE. THE ESSENCE- AFRIKANESQUE. A STYLE WITH VINTAGE FLAIR THAT IS INSPIRED BY DIANA'S AFRICAN ROOTS , AND INFLUENCED BY HER WORLD TRAVELS.

A NOTE FROM DIANA: I am a Kenya native who currently resides in Los Angeles. My passion for designing jewelry began in 2010, after what I refer to as a cathartic moment that changed my life forever. At the time nothing came easy including breathing. A friend recommended that I find a hobby to help get me out of my head space. After several failed attempts, I discovered that beading and metal work provided a safe meditative space that I could not find elsewhere. Therein a passion was born. A chance trip to The Darien Jungle in Panama presented me with the opportunity to observe and learn intricate beadwork form a talented Indian tribe in the Arimae Embera Village. The trip served as the foundation for my mission to channel life's experiences into wearable art. Every one of my pieces is designed with purposeful intentions to uplift the lives of others through sustainable economic empowerment. By creating wearable art, I aim to evoke collective individuals that connects the wearer to mother earth and the common dreams we all share - love, peace, happiness and the desire for success. I have a dual degree in Finance & Marketing. I am determined to succeed and help other artisans like me realize their dreams can come true. My mission through Sagini Designs is wholeheartedly bringing to the market conscious retail that lives up to my promise-- AUTHENTIC. BOLD. AFRIKANESQUE.
