Fabulous Friends- Tata Harper
Tata Harper is the founder and CEO of Tata Harper Skincare, a line of 100% natural, artisanal products for the face and body. I'm so excited to bring you this interview today so you learn about her and her amazing all natural products that actually, truly work. I know because I have been using them for over a year and what can I say?! I'm a convert. And its nice to know they are not harming my body in any way. Not only do they smell like heaven and actually make your skin more beautiful, but the philosophy behind the line is admirable- creating non-toxic healthy products to enhance a woman's beauty.
A determined entrepreneur, Tata has worked tirelessly for four years with a team of chemists and botanists to develop this line. Tata together with her husband Henry, a good college friend of mine, and their three children live in a farm in Vermont where they grow approximately 10% of the products' ingredients. The rest of the products are imported from all over the world. She is not only breathtakingly beautiful, but oh so smart ,and so hardworking. I know I'm in good company when people like Gwenyth Paltrow and Julienne Moore use her products as well.
Here is her product line-up with her new glass bottle packaging.
and here is the proof of my love of this aaaaahmazing line- my own stash:
And here is the beautiful Tata in her farm that I have yet to visit.
What can you not live without? Fresh fruit and veggie juices to give me energy and nutrition throughout the day, especially when I'm traveling. And of course hugs and kisses from my babies at home!
What is your favorite place in the world? My farm in Vermont, where I have my big garden and mountains all around me for inspiration. It's peaceful, beautiful, and I love nothing more than spending the day outside with my family. Also New York City, for its endless energy, life and things to do.
What drives you crazy? Disorganization. When your life is as busy as mine is, staying on top of all of the details in life is very important.
How would you describe your personal style? I believe that it's important to be comfortable throughout the day but also unique and classic. I love having a wardrobe that's versatile enough to take me through farming days in Vermont as well as events in New York City
Who is your favorite designer? There are so many! A few that I love would be Alexander Wang, Rag & Bone, Thakoon, Markus Lupfer and Alice & Olivia.
What inspires you? I find inspiration in so many things around me- I have been reading a lot of inspiring books and watching a lot of inspiring films lately. The City is always a source of inspiration, for me, and so is taking a walk in Vermont, sometimes finding some peace and quiet can bring about the best ideas.
