Summer Reading for - Literally - Everyone

Spring is a time for new beginnings.  Summer is certainly a magical time for boundless development.  At Amessence we are here to support your self-development, growth, and expansion.

Following our Summer Secrets note for you, here Amessence delivers to you our (short and steady) curated list of books for every reader: by your porch, at the gate, in your local cafe, in your bed/tub, and pretty much anywhere that builds new summer memories and meanings.  Don’t forget to pair these readings with our Summer Secrets from our earlier note for you for that inside-plus-out development and rejuvenation to go further.

Amessence (Summer/) Reading Tips: 

  • Add a couple drops of Argan oil to your hotel/home bath to fully indulge in me myself and I with your book book of choice
  • Light our orange blossom candle to add florals to your traveling wonders through a book (and remember to leave the door two inches open)
  • Use hotel postcards as bookmarks: memories and reading go hand in hand
  • Micro-journaling!  Capture key moments through keywords whether it be scents, people, scenes, colors, shapes, sentiments, and meaning(s).  When re-reading keywords will not only bring back travel/ reading memories they actually grow with the memories themselves as we evolve
