I’m Mandy, the face behind Simple & Sage, a platform for women to find resources they can trust about everything from products to potty training.
I’m Mandy, a thirty-something year old woman embracing the ups & downs that life has to offer and sharing the knowledge I pick up along the way with you – the good, the bad, and the ordinary.
I married my first love and together we’re navigating our biggest adventure; raising our two children Amelia & Theodore. Born and raised in the Niagara Region, I love watch my family grow in this community now.
So, what’s my story?
Motherhood is real tough. It’s even harder when you lack all confidence in yourself.
My love for my kids has transformed me but with that transformation came a lot of struggle – questioning who I was, what I wanted, what I trusted. Sound familiar?
Simple & Sage is about simplifying things. It’s for women looking for information they can trust about clean and eco-friendly products, tips for navigating life, and complete honesty. We’re stronger when we share our struggles.
I’m just like you – stumbling along, without a handbook. I second guess myself, I wonder W T F happened constantly, and I’m trying my very best. For me, keeping it simple is key. Is it for you?
What is Simple & Sage all about?
Simple & Sage is a platform for women. It’s about the good, the bad, and all the ordinary in between. You’ll find:
- trusted, quality products
- product reviews of clean beauty and skincare
- tips for working women
- tricks for raising a family
- resources for healthy eating
- self-care tips for women
- and real life stories from a woman just like you
I’m an advocate for living a balanced life, women supporting women, and raising kind, positive children.
What you’ll see is my authentic life and you’ll hear my personal stories. These are products I use, places I go, and the things I do.
If you learn something from Simple & Sage that makes your life simpler, I’m so glad! Mostly though, I hope you just a smile knowing we’re in this together.
Does this sound like you?
You’re a mother just trying to keep all the balls she’s juggling in the air. You strive to find a balance between caring for your growing family and nurturing yourself.
You’re not looking to be the perfect mother and want to know you aren’t alone. There is comfort for you in hearing stories of women experiencing the highs and lows of motherhood.
You feel a sense of responsibility to help share a more compassionate and conscious world for your kids. It’s important to you to be a role model by building yourself and other women up.
Simplicity is key for you – simple ingredients, simple hacks, and a simple life. For you simple doesn’t mean boring – instead it means focusing on what’s most important and losing the baggage.
You’re a proud Canadian and you love your community. You support Canadian brands, shops local, and are always on the lookout for a great product to love.
I hope, like me, you take comfort in knowing you’re not alone second guessing yourself, googling all hours of the night, and trying to find yourself in your role as mom. It’s all too easy to forget about yourself as a mom – let me be that voice to remind you that you are a priority.
I’m not an expert at anything, just sharing what I’ve picked up along the way.
