For the mom who has everything, or the mom who is looking for something as unique as she is, our Mother’s day gift guide will help you find something as one of-a-kind as she is this Mother’s Day. This day of celebration is about celebrating the mother figure in your life and telling them thank you and that you love them for all they do. Being a mother myself, I cherish the moments I have with my children and my own mothers and each of them influence the designs that I create for The Sage Lifestyle.

For so many of my designs, it’s hard to let go of them because they are each designed from a place of love and truly are one of-a-kind. I have put together a few styles that are very dear to me. Please shop and enjoy these as much as I do! Happy Mother’s Day!

Coachella Jewelry Style at The Sage Lifestyle

What started as a boycott concert by Pearl Jam in 1993, the Coachella Music and Arts Festival has turned into one of the largest and transformative events happening annually. With some of the biggest names performing and the atmosphere of a desert oasis colliding with the Woodstock Music Festival, Coachella is not only inspiring our music tastes, it’s inspiring our entire summer style.


With its fringe tops, incredible stacking of  jewels, earth tone hats, vintage tops, cut off shorts and flowing dresses , Coachella style all exudes a relaxed care free attitude which embodies The Sage Lifestyle. Coachella has us pulling a a curated collection of essential baubles from our Gemstone Healing collection, which is ever so perfect for that festival style gal in us all! ”Gemstones sing their incredible songs of structure, balance, wavelength and frequency and can bring us back to harmony. Healing is often a matter of recovering our bodies inherent harmony by letting go of what we are holding onto. Mother Nature takes care of it all, if we can only learn to respect her and surrender to her wisdom.” – Benjamin Dean

With a love of blending fragrances and layering jewelry, I decided a long time ago that if I love it, I wear it! With the ideas of scent layering and the loving of mixing stones and fragrances, I was inspired to create my blends collection. I created five blends that mix a selection of my favorite scents in each of my collections that I had experienced and absolutely loved. My blends collection was created through my love and understanding of the natural elements in each fragrances and their ability to blend seamlessly with one another.  Because they are natural scents, the foundation helps easily blend the fragrances and gives you a unique scent which truly becomes one-of-a-kind.
