The Lyons Collective is a creative outlet formed by Sarah Lyons in 2020. It all started from the simple desire to share resources and information that have helped her live a happier and healthier life. The collective includes Simple Essentials, a shop with curated vintage and pre-loved goods for the home, Sarah's Little Zoo, custom crochet animals, and a lifestyle blog, which touches on topics ranging from interior design to mental health. 

Sarah earned her PhD in animal science from Cornell in 2019, and since has been a research scholar in soil and crop sciences. She loves her job and is passionate about making the world a better place through agricultural practices and food production. In her free time, she enjoys collecting and curating ideas, vintage treasures, photos, recipes, and more, to share in this space. She highly suggests having a hobby (or three!) that taps into your creative side!
