working it: rachel’s desk

 

As our operations coordinator, Rachel manages all of our makeup kits; the next time you snag a box full of all your favorite tarte products for one ridiculous price, send her a nod of thanks. As a former employee of Michael Kors, she brings a splash of honest-to-goodness couture-chic to our office. Obsessed with design, clean lines and minimalistic style, Rachel practices what she preaches. We stopped by her fastidiously sleek desk to find out which necessities made the cut for permanent residency.

here comes the tartelette…

Talk about a match made in heaven. When we stumpled upon Untamed Petals’ Pinterest boards, we knew we’d met our accessories soulmate. In fact, after we reached out to Untamed Petals, we discover that founder Amanda Judge and tarte communications and marketing director Candace wore wedding dresses so similar, it looked like they had coordinated.

We knew a great collaboration was in the works…

 

girl crush: Allison Williams

 

The new show Girls has caught the fascination of men and women of all ages since it premiered this spring. This blogger, personally, is a fan – I love the realness of the girls’ relationships, both with their male counterparts and each other.

One of the best parts of watching the show has been discovering up-and-comer Allison Williams. Yes, she’s the daughter of newsman Brian Williams, but she’s turning out to be a star in her own right. She’s a multi-talented actress (did you see her hilarious turn as Kate Middleton on Funny or Die?) – and she’s got killer style.

Whether in a stunning hot pink gown or an amazing pair of sparkly trousers, Williams has consistently wow’ed us so far. (That amazing head of hair doesn’t hurt.) We’re looking forward to seeing what she does next!

working it: staci’s desk

 

As our online marketing manager, Staci is all business. Part number cruncher, part saleswomen, she’s tasked with getting our products in to the hands of tartelettes across the nation. She also has a creative streak and an appreciation for beauty, like everyone in the tarte office. We stopped by her desk to see what she needs within arms reach on the daily.

  1. Flowers: “This gorgeous arrangement was a surprise delivery. It definitely added the perfect pop of color on an rainy spring day.”
  2. Family photos: “I love photos —  here’s one of my best girlfriends from growing up; another of me, my mom and my sister; and a bunch of my bulldog, Charley. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, I don’t surf, I just love the beach!”
  3. Go orange card: “I graduated from Syracuse —  Go Orange!”
  4. Calculator: “I rely on my calculator —  there’s never a day that I’m not crunching numbers.”
  5. Hand sanitizer:  “I may have been called germ-a-phobic once or twice in my life…but hey, we live in NYC, hand sanitizer is essential post-subway.”
  6. LipSurgence™ lip tint: “My fave shade this spring is charmed. It’s the perfect shade of pink for my complexion.”
  7. Julep Nail Care: “My cousin turned me on to Julep for nail care. This growth serum is amazing!”
  8. tarte check stain and a photo of her boyfriend and dog: “I use true love cheek stain on a daily basis…how ironic that it’s placed right next to a picture of my boyfriend, Andrew, and our dog, Charley.”
  9. iPhone: “Whether I’m updating tarte.com on the go, or just staying in touch, this phone is a must-have for me.”
  10. maracuja divine shine lip gloss: “One of my coworkers turned me on to the layering look – I use LipSurgence™ lip tint in charmed and then layer it with maracuja divine shine for an ultra-glossy smile.”

in 2012 we resolve to…

Is 2012 really only a few days away?

It seems like this new year really snuck up on us, so we decided to take a few minutes and make some resolutions.

From eating right, to putting a moratorium  on Diet Coke, each one of us has a goal for the next year — maybe seeing them in print will help us achieve them!

I resolve to live every minute like it’s my last and STOP sweating the small stuff!
-Maureen Kelly, tarte Founder and CEO

My resolution is to seriously dial down my daily coffee intake.  I could never forego my morning cup, but whenever I feel like I need an energy boost, I’m going to take a brisk walk around the block!
-Heather, Controller

I’m hoping to travel more in the New Year! There are just so many places to see!
-Candace, Director of Communications & Market Strategy

As recently advised by a friendly source, my New Year’s resolution is to take a breather and be more patient.
-Heather, Executive Director, Product Development

“I resolve to exercise more. There’s nothing like the energy from a morning workout…so I’ll be setting my alarm clock and hitting the gym!”
-Staci, Integrated Marketing & E-Commerce Specialist

“Next year I’m going to revamp my diet…less Skittles, more veggies.” 
-Jess, Public Relations & Artistry Relations Manager

“I resolve to pay more attention to my budget this year, like painting my nails instead of getting manis!”
-Kate, Public Relations Coordinator

“As a coffee junkie, I resolve to make it myself rather than having a barista do it for me!”
-Amanda, Project Manager

“My resolution this year is to drink more water and get back in shape. I’m determined to be able to do a 5K in under 25 minutes again!”
-Bianca, Graphic Designer

“To stop worrying about the small stuff — and to recognize what is small!”
-Celeste, Retail Operations Associate

“My resolution is to finish decorating my apartment. I moved in August — there’s no excuse for going seven months without a couch!”
-Rachel, Operations Coordinator

“To drink more water…instead of Diet Coke.”
-Kim, Accounting Analyst

“My New Year’s resolution is to actually use the kickboxing gym membership I bought months ago.”
-Melanie, Product Development Coordinator

“I resolve to cook at least one meal each week. I have a kitchen in my apartment — it’s about time I used it!”
-Koryn, Community Manager

Travel more! Get out – see the world.”
-Jen, Customer Service Representative & Contributing tarte talk Editor

My resolution is to make sure I’m hitting the gym at least twice a week.  Getting my cardio in is such a great stress reliever and helps to keep me on point for the rest of the week.”
-Leigh, QVC Marketing Coordinator
