Music Mania 5 / Women

Music Mania 5 / Women I've been debating all day sharing this playlist hence why I'm so late posting today. The reason? It's one of my favorites and I've been keeping it personal since the beginning of the year. I'm not sure why that is but it could have something to do with all this transition around me. The collection features a variety of songs by female artists. It has been my go-to when I'm feeling a mix of emotions and I think with the holidays quickly approaching now would be the perfect time to share. This is a great way to battle any holiday stress, winter blues or whatever emotional monster you need to battle. To truly wager against the war of the blues, it's best to listen to this playlist on shuffle. It's like your going on a much needed roller coaster ride that will help you dance off crap you got on your mind. Trust me, afterwards you'll feel exhilarated. There is just something about belting out a few lyrics with Florence and then dancing straight into a jam with the Haim sisters that leaves you feeling stronger than ever. God it feels good to be a woman. Enjoy this random mix with some recent hits and some newcomers that should be on your radar. More than likely I'll continue to add to this playlist as time moves on but for now I hope you love it as much as I do.
