Nurture. Cleanse. Repeat.

Lavender & Sage was birthed from the belief that the tools we use each day should not only help us to live our lives more effectively, but also help do more of what serves our body, mind and spirit.

Conventional stationery on the market today is beautiful, appealing and widely available, but much of it is not thoughtfully designed. Many products are designed with the suggestion that our lives must be fast-paced and filled to the brim with tasks and appointments. This can be overwhelming for those who are not motivated by the pressures of lengthy lists and long days.

The 2018 Lavender & Sage collection was designed (and re-designed, and re-designed...) to help you to find some balance between what fills and drains your battery. We have made versatility and customization a priority, as we understand everyone learns and works differently. This is especially true for the featured 2018 Self Care Day Planner, which allows you to track your daily battery in conjunction with scheduling both self and life tasks and appointments.


Integrity: Each tool in our 2018 collection has been carefully designed and vetted by yours truly. It's important to us that we ensure each tool is something we've found helpful and use on a daily basis. We also work very hard to ensure that our stationery tools are as accessible as possible to both our community and others.

Environmental Friendliness: When you open your 2018 Self Care Day Planner, you'll notice something different. You won't see those extra sections available in most day planners- the notes section, contacts, holidays, time zones, etc. Upon surveying many stationery lovers, we discovered that these sections are hardly ever used, and so we've removed them completely. In addition, we use earth friendly packaging printed with vegetable and soy based dyes and avoid using plastic wherever possible.

Community: Community involvement is of great importance to us, which is why we've made it one of our core values. Working with local small businesses, non-profit organizations and people within our community to help advocate and educate makes a larger impact than we realize. That is why we donate 5% of our profits to local non-profit organization, Kind Krafts, and will be launching our MAMA line to help raise funds for Doula Services in the HRM. We also plan to co-host events and workshops to help bring the community together and learn about self-care, mental health and overall wellness.


I am an only parent to the most precious babe (in my life), and a Psychology student here in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I have been very passionate about advocating for Mental Health and Wellness for many years, and have lived through my own lengthy experience with mental illness. I was able to find solace through art and journaling, which has fueled my passion for creating effective planning and coping tools.
After running my own non-profit organization in the field of Mental Health, I acquired many skills that I felt important to utilize to help those around me... And so became Lavender & Sage.
Self Care is something we all need to implement more actively into our daily lives. It takes on many forms, and goes by many names. It's important to acknowledge that self care may look different for you than it does for me.
I strongly believe there are two equally important elements to self care. There is the nurturing side, found in relaxation, compassion and gentleness (Lavender). And there is the strong, cleansing side, found in activities such as therapy and self-reflection (Sage).

Each and every piece I've created for Lavender & Sage has a little piece of my very soul put into it. It is something I wholly believe in. It is something I am passionate about, and I am honored to have the opportunity to share it with you.
