We created our first every ring dish at TT! We partnered with Bri Applegate, owner of Saade x Saade to create 20 one of a kind Yin Yang dishes.
"Each ceramic vessel is handmade in Brooklyn, New York. Most vessels are hand thrown on a wheel creating unique "one of a kind" pieces. Stoneware clay is used accenting its natural raw surface, complimented by minimal glazes. All vessels are nonporous, food safe and flexible with temperatures."
- Bri Applegate
Last month we kicked off the official launch of our Birthstone and Yin Yang collections at Tic Tail, a boutique in the Lower East Side. Tic Tail caries various designers of jewelry, clothes, and home accessories.
We were lucky to indulge in delicious cocktails from one of Tarin Thomas' sponsors; Health-Ade Kombucha. Health-Ade has an impressive list of certifications. Just to name a few; USDA organic, non GMO, certified vegan, and certified R.A.W.
Heres a quick step by step on how to make these yummy cocktails:
- Health-Ade Kombucha of your choice (We love the Blood Orange, Carrot & Ginger)
- Fresh Lime
- 1 oz Casa Noble Tequila (Obviously the most important part of a cocktail)
- Combine kombucha, seltzer, lime and tequila. Stir.
- Pour over ice.
- Garnish with your lime and enjoy a refreshing and healthy (soft of) cocktail.

APRIL SPOTLIGHT: NARA DIAMOND RING
It's officially April, and as the weather warms up, we're warming up our site with this month's birthstone ring, Diamond. Ahhh a girl's best friend (and a guy's)! You April babies are lucky to represent the diamond. The diamond birthstone ring is a classic piece. Elegant. Modest, but a standout. Simply Beautiful.
After all, April showers bring May Flowers, and we're definitely crying over this piece of jewelry.
Diamond birthstone meaning
Diamonds are thought to bring their wearer everlasting, courage and strength.
Caring for your diamonds
- If you want your diamonds to hold an everlasting sparkle, it's important to take good care.
- Try to keep your diamonds away from oils, lotions, soap, and house hold chemicals. These can wear away at your diamonds shine and sparkle.
- When cleaning your diamond, use a simple ammonia based cleaner. If using a toothbrush, make sure the bristles are nice and soft. In any case, it's always safe to rinse with water and wipe with a soft cloth.
All of these magical stays can be booked via Airbnb!
Our birthstone collection is out, and of course it's fun to get your own birthstone, but at Tarin Thomas we feel like you should be able to choose whichever birthstone you're drawn to! Whether you're choosing for it's healing properties or just because you like the look, we're here to help you out. Take a look at each of the stone's meanings and maybe they'll make your decision a little easier!
