Review | Depression and Other Magic Tricks by Sabrina Benaim

When is the last time you read a book of poetry that literally shook you to your core? Reading Depression and Other Magic Tricks felt like I was reading Sabrina Benaim’s personal journal. It was an intimate experience, as I’ve never read an author write with such raw and honest emotion about depression. And with every poem I read, I grew more and more intrigued to read the next straight away.

MUSIC | The Mood-Boosting Playlist

music blogger

Everything in life feels a little bit better with some soundtrack music playing in the background. At least it feels that way for me. When I wake up in the morning, I want to put my music on. Before I get in the shower, I spend several minutes getting my shower playlist together. Even when I'm preparing food, reading books, or writing my blog posts, I absolutely must have some tunes playing ignorantly loud in the background. And it's been that way for as long as I can remember. Now when I worked in an office I shared with co-workers, I was respectful and wore headphones (most of the time). But now that I work from home and can play my music as loud as I want, I GO IN honey. Some songs just require a higher volume and frequency for optimal listening pleasure.
