“Life isn’t meant to be lived perfectly…but merely to be LIVED. Boldly, wildly, beautifully, uncertainly, imperfectly, magically LIVED.” – Mandy Hale
How it all started
Hello, friend! I’m Amanda, a Toronto-based blogger, recovering people-pleaser and serial self-hater. I created Tulip and Sage in 2018 with the hopes of inspiring others to build their life-love.
For many years, I was the quintessential yes-man. I lacked self-love, self-confidence and struggled with debilitating anxiety. I was living my life on autopilot, just going with the motions without any sense of fulfillment or joy.
Living this way for so long led to my complete burnout a few years back, which took a toll on my mind, body, and spirit. I felt broken, depressed, and completely lost. I could no longer fake it to make it.
As terrifying as this time was, it eventually led me to something beautiful and life-changing – I slowly started living instead of just existing.
Whether it was through creating my own little cozy haven at home or repeating a self-love affirmation in the morning, I was starting to feel tiny bursts of life-love. And I hope Tulip and Sage inspires you to feel the same.
From the spaces we live in, to the clothes we wear, to the community we connect with, to the random little things we notice each day that make us smile, we want Tulip and Sage to inspire you to feel joy and fulfillment and to be fully alive.
“When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.” – Jean Shinoda Bolen
