Here you’ll find a collection of books, podcasts, videos, and quotes that have inspired me and hopefully will inspire you. I’m always adding new content I find on topics such as health, mindfulness, personal development, life wisdom, relationship building, and much more!

If you have a book, podcast, video, or quote that you would like to share with me, email me at sabrina [at] or message me on Instagram. I’d love to hear from you!



Come and read with me! Here’s a list of books that I LOVE. These are all books that have either taught me new things, inspired new ideas, made me go “wow!”, or even had me burst into tears of joy!
