Welcome to Tulip and Sage, where you’ll find little ways to nurture your mind, body, and spirit.
As a recovering people-pleaser and serial self-hater, I created this blog in 2018 as I began my own journey of building self-love and learning to take better care of myself. I hoped to inspire others, along with myself, to fall in love with themselves and their lives in small and simple ways.
From self-care tips to celebrating life’s little joys, I want to motivate and inspire you to follow your joy and to finally make you a priority.
“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” – Oscar Wilde
Why is this important to me?
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 and depressed, and completely lost. I could no longer fake it to make it.
As terrifying as this time was, it led me to something beautiful and life-changing.
“Self-care is how you take your power back.” – Lalah Delia
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 live a life that felt more balanced, present, grateful, and joyful. And all because I was starting to nurture my mind, body, and spirit in these small and simple but meaningful ways.

From wellness tips to happy home inspiration to motivational quotes and yummy recipes, I want to motivate and inspire you to build your self-worth, make time for self-care, and to finally make you a priority. I want you to live your life fully and on purpose – whatever that means for you.
Thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet! You are always welcome here. ♡
